THIS HITLER NONSENSE …

Will the real modern-day “Hitler” be easy to spot?

Regie's Blog

I am not an expert on Hitler. But my father is.

He toured post-war Germany extensively in 1957 and ’58 as a child performer. And he often recounts the stories. He befriended  teenage Lebensborn children (if you don’t know what Lebensborn children are …well …before you post anymore about Hitler you should read about them). He visited an SS widow and got a peek at her husband’s uniform and Luger (that he’d committed suicide with), she had stored in an old trunk, in the attic.

These and other intense experiences in Germany sent my father on a life-long quest to understand this sociopath (Hitler) and the country that allowed itself to be dragged into one of the darkest chapters in world history. My dad is a Hitler/Nazi buff the way Indiana Jones’ dad was a Holy Grail buff.

As the son of a man with this hobby (one might call…

How Reading ‘The Lord of the Rings’ Led An Atheist Lawyer, Fredric Heidemann, to Christianity.

“If our being is nothing more than a collection of atoms reacting with each other in enormous complexity through cause and effect chains stretching back to the beginning, then we are floating blindly through space and time: there’s no rhyme, reason, or purpose.”

Former atheist Fredric Heidemann lives with his wife and their daughter in the Lansing, Michigan. He currently works there as an attorney. Born and raised in an atheist family, Heidemann dismissed religion until his late teenage years when he abandoned atheism. He entered the Catholic Church in 2006 during his freshman year of college and loves sharing his story (1).

According to Heidemann he “grew up in a loving, comfortable atheist household of professional scientists. My dad was a lapsed Catholic, and my mom was a lapsed Lutheran. From the time that I could think rationally on the subject, I did not believe in God. God was an imaginary being for which there was no proof. At best, God was a fantasy for half-witted people to compensate their ignorance and make themselves feel better about their own mortality” (2). He was quite scathing in that he saw belief…

Cardinal Seán: Christmas Joy is About Solidarity, Rejecting Ayn Rand Extreme Individualism

“Christmas joy is about discovering and building solidarity with our families, with our community, with the human beings on the planet, and with our creator.”

Millennial

Cardinal Seán O’Malley of Boston delivered an outstanding message on joy, community, and solidarity this Christmas, encouraging us to pursue these and leave behind the selfishness, materialism, and hedonism of an extreme individualism that is truly poisonous:

“Christmas is about joy; so often, people do not know the difference between being happy, and having fun. For some people their whole life is one long pursuit of having fun. The joy of Christmas is not the product of successful shopping sprees, of fantasy or fairy tales, or addictions to entertainment, drugs, or alcohol….

Christmas joy is about discovering that life must be lived in solidarity. The Ayn Rand extreme individualism of our culture is poison, whose antidote is community and solidarity. Christmas joy is about discovering and building solidarity with our families, with our community, with the human beings on the planet, and with our creator.”
