Last week, in Friday’s Vortex, we asked the question directly to Fr. James Martin: Do you identify as a homosexual? Yes or no? There are many reasons for that question to be asked, and those reasons criss-cross over theological, spiritual and political lines. Let’s begin our further examination of this question about Fr. Martin with the […]
About Church Militant
The Holy Catholic Church, the Universal Church, is divided into three supernatural missions:
The Church Militant
The Church Suffering
The Church Triumphant
The Church Suffering comprises the souls of the righteous suffering in purgatory as they are purified for Heaven.
The Church Triumphant comprises the souls of the Saints who have been glorified in Heaven.
The Church Militant comprises the souls on Earth engaged in battle against the forces evil.
We are the Church Militant.
The Church Militant (Ecclesia Militans) is the Christian militia. The Church Militant does battle against sin, the devil, and the demonic "rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places" (Ephesians 6:12).
"Christians are born for combat."
-Pope Leo XIII, Sapientiae Christianae

This Vortex is aimed squarely at young men — college kids and twenty-somethings. Are you sick of arguing with buddies who are agnostic or even social atheists? Fed up with their Facebook posts slamming God or Catholics or conservatives? Here’s a hint on how to handle them: Ask questions. That’s right. Ask them pointed questions. […]
In the just-concluded election cycle, the term “The Forgotten Man” became fashionable in the final days of the campaign. Donald Trump began using it extensively as did his surrogates in media interviews because it so completely summed up the feelings of so many voters — the average guy working hard, paying his taxes and completely […]
SPRINGFIELD, Ill (ChurchMilitant.com) – Bishop Thomas Paprocki is doing something almost no other bishop has done: he is publicly calling out political candidates by name. In a video Sunday, October 30, the bishop of Springfield, Illinois spoke the plain truth in simple fashion. “Hillary Clinton and Sen. Tim Kaine, the Democratic candidates for president and […]
“It’s an amazing bastardization of the faith” DETROIT (ChurchMilitant.com) – A new release of Hillary Clinton campaign emails shows contempt for faithful Catholics. The newest Wikileaks document dump is made up of nearly 2,000 emails between Clinton and her campaign chairman John Podesta, bringing the number of revealed Podesta emails to more than 5,000. The email in […]
Did you hear about the blockbuster interview with a woman named Juanita Broaddrick? She’s the woman who says Governor Bill Clinton raped her in 1978, and then two weeks later, Hillary Clinton threatened her into silence. Yeah, didn’t think you’d heard about it — or if you have heard about it, you barely heard about […]
Many of the most vocal bishops in the United States when it comes to social justice issues are the same ones who support the Democrats, and even sometimes actually condemn the Republicans. Now that’s curious, given the way the Democratic Party has treated American blacks for the past hundred-plus years. Democrats have passed laws and […]
America, it’s one minute to midnight. TRANSCRIPT America, it’s one minute to midnight. Even though America was bound to reach the point of electing a tyrant like Hillary Clinton sooner or later, we’ve all been whistling past the graveyard hoping it would be later rather than sooner. Despite the moral equivalency that Philadelphia archbishop Charles Chaput […]
If it isn’t painfully obvious to everyone in the world, the Democrats have become the party of Death because their master is Satan. TRANSCRIPT If it isn’t painfully obvious to everyone in the world, the Democrats have become the party of Death because their master is Satan. This is not to paint Republicans as the party […]
Hillary Clinton is evil. There is no other way to say the reality. She is evil. Hillary is Satan’s mop for wiping up the last remaining resistance to him in America. TRANSCRIPT Hillary Clinton is evil. There is no other way to say the reality. She is evil. Archbishop Fulton Sheen made the perfect distinction […]
The Vortex talks about Orlando, Gays, Liberals and Muslims. Message: The Catholic Church wants to save gays from Hell. Islam wants to send gays to Hell. TRANSCRIPT All the victims at the gay nightclub who were murdered over the weekend need our prayers. Fifty people, 50-plus souls were on the scene, and the very next moment, […]
It has become very apparent to us here at our little apostolate that something is terribly wrong in the Church. We are not alone. Quite a number have preceded us; others are arriving at the same conclusion. That something is terribly amiss shouldn’t be a source of despair. The Church has lived through disastrous times in the […]
It should come as no surprise that abortion and contraception are from Hell. But something almost no one knows is the demonic presence testified to by one of the world’s leading contraception proponents back in the earliest days of the movement. Marie Stopes was to England what Margaret Sanger was to the United States — a […]
Perhaps the most common weapon used by the Church of Nice when confronted by the naked truth of its abysmal failure is the calling out of the “tone” of faithful Catholics. The “tone” excuse is really a pathetic excuse when you think about it. It’s a last-ditch effort to try and cancel out the reality of […]
So, is it finally time to throw in the towel on impure, supposed Catholic celebrations and commemorations? Saint Patrick’s Day comes to mind, for example. And by pure, we mean free of all stain of secular nastiness. The annual New York City St. Patrick’s Day Parade, given its current leadership and some of its marchers, no […]
