I was caught up somewhat with the AMC show “The Walking Dead! Waiting to find out who the dude with the barbed-wired baseball bat was going to “kill”! The hype was immense!
I am not watching this show again! I saw torture and evil in this broadcast! The producers already stated that people would be upset and they are correct! At least I am.

Yesterday morning, I was listening to the 4/25/14 podcast of the “Calling All Catholics” talk radio show (The Station of the Cross, 101.7 FM, Buffalo, NY) featuring Jesuit priest, Marty Moleski, and moderator, Gina Zanicky-Weiss.

“The Cult of the Virgin” is an interesting examination of Roman Catholic Mariolatry. Catholicism’s elevation of Mary to semi-deity as Mediatrix and Co-Redemptrix has absolutely no scriptural foundation and seriously detracts from the work of Jesus Christ. I especially enjoyed the chapters on Medjugorje and the other alleged Marian apparitions.
However, a serious problem with this book is that the authors, Elliot Miller and Kenneth Samples, approach Roman Catholicism as a legitimate branch of Christianity. Both authors are connected with the Christian Research Institute, an evangelical apologetics ministry that researches cults and non-Christian religions. The founder of CRI, Walter Martin, stated in 1980 that “if any Catholics are saved they are saved not because of the Roman Catholic Church but in spite of it.” Since the death…
