Mordor is Come

This day we fight! By all that you hold dear on this good earth, I bid you stand, Men of the West!

A Sign of Hope

Gandalf: The board is set… the pieces are moving. 
The fate of the world will now be decided.

Like Sauron’s army spilling out of Mordor, Satan has come out in our lifetime. He has dispensed with the glamour phase of human recruitment, and has moved into the brute force phase. No longer dangling shiny objects in order to attract innocents, he is out in the open. 

See how Satan once disguised abortion as health care, as compassion for women. He seduced those of decent intent who merely lacked critical thinking skills, and sucked them in. When they didn’t fight, evil overcame them. Now, abortion advocates carry signs that say, “Abortion = Good Snack.”…

Awaiting the Deluge

A Sign of Hope

By Charlie Johnston

I have to read for an hour to an hour and a half at night before I go to bed or I frequently can’t get to sleep at all. My mind is always working. I am usually composing 15 to 20 pieces in my head at any given time and trying to deal with various challenges, both public and private. So I have to read to coax my mind into neutral so I can get some sleep. In that period, the reading is always light stuff – mostly geo-political thrillers and police procedurals. I do my heavy reading during the day (a round robin of American History, World History, Russian History, Religion and Theology, Military Strategy and Diplomacy, Biography, Philosophy, Serious Literature, and an elective or two). I can’t do it at night for it usually causes my mind to ramp up rather than settle down.

St. Thomas More

By Charlie Johnston

Arghhh! I was supposed to note yesterday that I will give my last presentation of the spring this Sunday, April 10. It will be in the St. Louis area. Actually, it will be in downtown Belleville, Illinois – where I lived for five years. That will give me a chance to visit some old friends, old haunts, and my favorite Shrine in the Country (Our Lady of Snows). Come on down and bring a friend (either yours or mine). It will be at the Nicholls Center, 515 E. D Street, Belleville, IL 62220. Doors will open at 12:30 and we will begin at 1:00. Hope to see you then. Then I’m going home until the end of May.


We have just started our Easter quarterly fundraising appeal. Yeah, I know, I hate these things, too. But at CORAC we charge for nothing while…
