Hollywood Director Says Incest is OK

It's true read this.

Pro incest director Nick Cassavetes
Honestly I wasn't too shocked to hear this.  It's sad,  but I wasn't too surprised.  If you think about it this type of perversion has been infiltrating Hollywood for the past 35 years ever since the doomed summer of peace and love in 68'.  However, I was dismayed by the lack of outrage in the media.   Come on! Nick Cassavetes, (the director of such films such as The Notebook and Alpha Dog) a big time Hollywood director pretty much came out and said that incest was OK.  God forbid a Catholic priest spoke out publicly against homosexuality.  The whole media would be on that immediately, calling for the imprisonment and defrocking of that priest. But whenever a Hollywood director says something insane he/she gets a pass!!  This leads me to my next point.

I am in no way equating homosexuality with incest.  I know many decent homosexuals who would be just as outraged as I was when I heard the statement by Cassavetes.  However, what I am saying is that once you allow one alternate lifestyle group to legally marry what will stop other fringe groups from doing the same?  Its human nature, once one group gets something another group wants something also.  It's like children.  Once you give a child something the other child wants something also.  

The scary thing about this is that once Hollywood deems something OK then movies and shows will be made promoting incest and other alternative lifestyles. Once that happens the general public will become desensitized to the dangers of that perversion.  Hollywood is the biggest influencer of culture in this country.   With more and more children living in broken homes, without positive role models these children will be easy prey to the perverse influences of Hollywood. Once this happens we have a society rotting from the inside out. A society without a moral compass is doomed for collapse.

Just think about it.  20 years ago it was unthinkable to display homosexuality on TV.  Who knows maybe 20 years from now it will be normal to display incest on TV.  Sounds crazy?  I don't think so.  An unredeemed humanity is capable of any perversion.  Human nature without God is inherently evil.

I am reminded of these prophetic words from St. Paul in his letter to the Romans:

"Therefore God gave them up in the lusts of their hearts to impurity, to the dishonoring of their bodies among themselves, because they exchanged the truth about God for a lie and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed for ever! Amen. For this reason God gave them up to dishonorable passions. Their women exchanged natural relations for unnatural, and the men likewise gave up natural relations with women and were consumed with passion for one another, men committing shameless acts with men and receiving in their own persons the due penalty for their error. "

I would also highly suggest reading this excellent article about the normalization of incest and pedophilia in Hollywood.

10 Great Quotes from The Book of Sirach

The book of Sirach is a book that is often overlooked in the bible. This is unfortunate since this book contains many wise, practical saying on how to live a virtous life. The book was believed to have been written between 200-175 B.C.E.

Here are ten quotes that I feel best reflect this timeless work.

1."Do not become a beggar by feasting with\borrowed money, when you have nothing in your purse." Sirach 18:33

2."In all you do remember the end of your life, and then you will never sin." 7:36

3.."Glory and dishonor come from speaking; a man's tongue is his downfall." 5:13"

4."A wise man is cautious in everything." 18:27

5."One who trusts others is light minded." 19:4

6."If you pursue justice, you will obtain it and wear it as a glorious robe." 27:8

7."Many have fallen by the edge of the sword, but no many as have fallen because of the tongue." 28:18

8." In all of your work be industrious and no sickness will…

George Michael, Carrie Fisher, and The Afterlife

I was stunned, as was most of the world was when I heard about the passing of George Michael on Christmas day.  Michael possessed enormous talent was and one of the most successful acts in the 1980's and early 90's

Shortly after Carrie Fisher died.  Fisher was famous for her legendary role as princess Leia from the Star Wars movies.  Strangely her mother also died the day after.

2016 was a notable year for celebrity deaths.

Some names include Prince, Glenn Frey, David Bowie,  Doris Roberts, Alan Rickman, and Muhammad Ali.

As a Catholic these deaths got me thinking about the transient nature of life and the inevitability of death.

Marcus Aurelius, the stoic, emperor, philosopher king wrote about the passing nature of life as he reflected, "Time is a sort of river of passing events, and strong is its current; no sooner is a thing brought to sight than it is swept by and another takes its place, and this too will be swept away."

Even though I agree mostly with Aurelius&…

Me vs. The Almighty

There is a famous scene in the Bible where Jacob wrestles with God.  Jacob fights with God until God takes out a bone from Jacob's thigh. Interestingly, God eventually relents and stops fighting with Jacob. After this dramatic incident, Jacob is renamed Israel which literally means, "he who struggles with God."

I can relate to this story.  Many times in my life I have argued with God. I still do. (my wife can attest to that.) Many times I have criticized his tactics, his ways, and his wisdom. In my worst moments, I have even used choice language. I have a complicated relationship with God. Like Jacob, I have wrestled with God. (thigh bone still intact)

Recently I approached a priest friend of mine and told him of my struggles with God.  I expected that he would chide me for my lack of respect and informality. What this priest said was illuminating and encouraging. He told me that it was OK at times to be angry with God, God understood. He, in fact, encouraged this honest…
