Catholic group condemns Walsh on gays in parade

(Way to go C.J Doyle! Marty Walsh is another Irish "catholic" politician here in Massachusetts that is pro-sodomite and pro-abortion. And Boston College educated as well.

Francis: “Jesus did not have to come to teach us good manners”

Francis: "Jesus did not have to come to teach us good manners" http://rorate-caeli.blogspot.com/ Consistory, Feb. 22, 2014 My brother Cardinals, Jesus did not come to teach us good manners, how to behave well at the table! To do that, he would not have had to come down from heaven and die on the Cross. Christ came to save us, to show us the way, the only way out of the quicksand of sin, and this way of holiness is mercy, that mercy which he has shown, and daily continues to show, to us.

The 2014 Lenten Recipe Thread

Okay folks, here it is: that thread you all wait for each year with fish-baited breath- It’s the 2014 edition of the Angelqueen Lenten food forum! Now I know we are all good Catholics when every Friday rolls around and we remember why that little fishie appears in each block that’s an abstinence day. (Although, I did shock my personal friends a couple years back when I told them I was giving up fish for Lent. I had to reassure them that I was simply going vegetarian on those days. But that’s Read more [...]

Novena to Saint John Bosco January 22nd-January 30th Saint John Bosco, father and teacher of the young, in need of special help, I appeal with confidence to thee, Saint John Bosco, for I require not only spiritual graces, but also temporal ones, and particularly… (add your personal intentions here) May thou, who on earth had such great devotion to Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament and to Mary Help of Christians, and who always had compassion for those who were suffering, obtain from Read more [...]

The Malachi Martin files have been added

You can find the link on the right sidebar some ways down the page.

LINK

It was a bit of work to reformat all of it and there still may be a few kinks via the transition. All of the documents should be downloadable in PDF format for archive and/or distribution.

I’ve been meaning to add these for some time, but had been putting it off until a very good priest and great friend of the forum pushed me along.

CBC's "The Current" played an interview today with Laurence Kotlikoff, an economist at Boston University who ran for President in the past 2012 election with Americans Elect (but who canceled the campaign in the spring). He explains the real extent of the American deficit and debt and the drastic measures needed to keep the US from dropping into insolvency and suffering the same fate as Greece. Listen to the interview starting at 03:00 at the following address: http://www.cbc.ca/thecurrent/episode/2012/12/07/laurence-kotlikoff-is-the-united-states-broke/ Another Read more [...]

AQ Editorial: The “Lefebvrite” Lexicon (or “Lefebvricon”)

By John Grasmeier Angelqueen.org June, 2012 Note: The following article first appeared in October of 2006. It's been edited to apply to the current situation. As a result of all of the media attention being paid to the current situation between the SSPX and Rome, there has been a great deal of renewed focus on the priestly Society of St. Pius X (SSPX). Journalists and bloggers covering the topic have had to quickly become informed on a subject which many or most had previously known Read more [...]

AQ Editorial: Nothingness – Rebellion and the SSPX “split” fantasy

Att: Rebels. We won't become angry with you, debate you, coddle you or criticize you. We won't respond, react or even flinch. We won't attempt to talk you into something, or talk you out of anything. You see, any of the above would a tacit indication that your opinions, musings and philosophies etc. are important to Angelqueen.org, the SSPX and/or Holy Mother Church at large. God knows - as does anyone who's been here more than a day - we've done our share of rebelling on AQ. We've also Read more [...]

AQ News Email Subscriptions

If you've had issues with email subscriptions, click "Subscribe via Email" at the top right and re-submit. After moving the site, the email subscription feed needed to be reworked. In the past at the former site, some of you had issues with getting email updates. Some of you, like myself, may have developed issues after moving to the new site. Hopefully, these issues have been resovled, but let me know if you run into any problems. Some of you may remember the old "Tradlist." This system Read more [...]

Catholic “Test of Fire” Campaign Ad going viral

Just read a News report that CNN is getting around 370,000 viewers. This video has over 1.5 million views at the time of this posting.

HEADS-UP: Come fall, AQ will be doing its part to flush this anti-Catholic, sociopathic, scumbag turd down the toilet – where he belongs.

I know evil when I see it and I have my daughter’s future to think of.

Authors: I’ve discovered a FANTASTIC way to lose your posting privileges!

Not sure how anyone, especially here, ever got the bright idea that AQ, the SSPX and/or Holy Church are democracies. None ever were, at any point in time, ever. For those authors who haven't disabused themselves of this notion, I have first hand info that there are many others who would absolutely love to take your place as an author here. Hence, if you are feeling charitable and wish to give your author spot to another non-author AQ member, here are a few tips: - Write an article Read more [...]

IMPORTANT: The ability to create new threads has been closed to new members.

Here's what I wrote to one of our members who was inquiring about emial and IP addresses being available to the person who creates a post: This is interesting. I thought only I was seeing that info because I'm the admin. I've looked into the matter further. It turns out that wordpress gives everyone who is an "author" (the default status given when a new user joins) the ability to see that information. The idea is to give every author control over their thread and know who is posting to it. It Read more [...]

Still building and getting the bugs out.

Just a heads up in case anyone is wondering why things still get funky every now and then. Still getting the bugs out, adding stuff, taking stuff out etc. Looks like we're well on our way to a new home. Most of the members are telling me that they like they REALLY like the new digs once they get used to it. I didn't at first, but now I'm just loving nearly everything about this. Nevermind that it's made nearly ALL of our tech issue disappear, this paltform just looks, feels and acts like we took Read more [...]
