  • If you're planning to watch the Super Bowl, please do me a big favor and read this short article right away about Lady Gaga's half-time show:

    Three Reasons NOT to Watch Lady Gaga's Half Time Show

    Lady Gaga is known for shocking and immoral behavior, including perverse performances, anti-Christian themes, and open support for LGBT themes.

    Also, if you know others who are planning to watch the Super Bowl, I suggest you forward them this article and alert them about Lady Gaga's half-time performance.

    God-fearing persons must not only talk the talk. You and I must also walk the walk.

    This means living good, clean, moral lives in private as well as in public.

    Otherwise, as Paul Bourget said:

    "One must live the way one thinks or end up thinking the way one has lived."

    Only by living the way we think, can we return to the Christian roots of society and make our country great in God's eyes.

    Until next time, I remain,

    Sincerely,

    John Horvat
    Vice-President, Tradition, Family and Property (TFP)

  • Three Reasons Not to Watch Lady Gaga’s Super Bowl Show

    By John Horvat II
    52
    The Super Bowl is the most-watched television show in the country. As the premier sports event viewed by tens of millions of Americans, it should reflect the nation and its values.

    That is not what is happening this year. In fact, for some years now, the organizers of the event have featured performers who send a message representing the most radical anti-family lifestyles and immoral fashions. This year’s choice is especially unfortunate: Lady Gaga


    Lady Gaga will be featured as the principal performer during the 12-minute half-time show this Sunday. The pop star is an outspoken advocate of same-sex “marriage” and the LGBT agenda. Her music and dancers typically represent all that is dark, immoral and bizarre on the pop scene. Moreover, she is expected to politicize her show by using it to criticize the new president. The fact that she will be given this most coveted platform for free to deliver her message is a good reason not to watch the half-time show.

    There is another reason to turn off the dial. The nation is polarized and featuring her on this show only creates useless divisions that weaken the nation. It makes no sense to put someone on the stage who ridicules the beliefs, morals and political choices of a sizeable part of the population. America faces major challenges in the days ahead. The Super Bowl should be a clash of teams not moralities. This most important unifying event should serve to unite the nation not divide it.


    Finally, there are so many who desire America’s return to order. However, they need to make the connection between morality and entertainment. One of the major reasons America is in such bad shape is because the culture is in the hands of those who destroy morals and promote radical anti-family lifestyles—all in the name of entertainment.

    The purpose of entertainment is to provide wholesome repose amid the daily trials and hardships of life. Entertainment should not be hijacked to promote a radical agenda that works against those values and institutions that made America great. It’s not just a show. People need to be consistent in aligning their morals with their entertainment choices.

    It is time to stop turning this sporting event into a political statement. After the second quarter, people should exercise their right to turn off Lady Gaga’s half-time show. It has no place in the Super Bowl. It sends the wrong message to the nation.

  • Here's another reason:



    You'll be subjecting your Catholic eyes to the most homely, occult jewess in all of Hollywood.

Sanctity of life will be held in derision even by those who outwardly profess it, for in those days Our Lord Jesus Christ will send them not a true Pastor but a destroyer."  St. Francis of Assisi

    This is a great article. Thank you! "The “Super Bowl” worships at the altar of national excess of materialism and relativism and hedonism and libertarianism and commercialism and profiteering and sloth."

    No amount of outrage from one year to the next seems to matter. Catholics thus serve as enablers of the Talmudic naturalists who control Hollywood and corporate America and Madison Avenue advertising firms to “push the envelope” with each succeeding year. Catholics have grown used to–and are no longer repelled by–the horrific “half-time” programs, which feature “rock music” and displays, whether planned or “unplanned” of gross indecency, and by crowd shots of immodestly dressed “cheerleaders” and spectators).

  • Though the majority, I am sure, here on Cathinfo has nothing to do with the Super Bowels, I am under the impression that a number of Trads probably still observe it. With how much folks love their sports, it seems reasonable to presume this, no?

    Does anyone here share this opinion?

  • I would like to thank these contributors to CI in this thread for giving a few words that you just won't find in most places on the Internet or in public generally speaking, regarding that despicable "Ga-ga" woman and immorality in entertainment in general.

    She continues to scandalize children whenever she gets the chance, and Our Lord said that people like her would be BETTER OFF with a millstone tied about their neck and cast into the sea.  Since that isn't likely to happen to her, one may well shudder at the thought of what will LIKELY happen to her, eventually.

    I went to the grocery store yesterday and pushing a shopping cart around I was passing by other shoppers who were openly speaking about their Super Bowl expectations without any suspicion that there may be someone nearby within earshot who does not appreciate what they have to say.  So many people today walk around talking on their cell phones saying things that nobody probably wants to hear.

    Anyway, regarding the Big Game, I might watch some of it and I might not, but I doubt I'll have any interest in the halftime show. While I certainly don't worship sports like is commonplace today as it was in ancient Rome, seeing a well-played game now and then is not too hazardous to one's faith, I hope.  

    In fact, in my experience whenever there has been a halftime show I wanted to see (marching bands on the field is nice, especially when they play the great John Philip Sousa's marches which is almost never, any more) I am disappointed because the channel goes right to high-priced commercials instead of showing the bands do their thing.

    This was my principal complaint about Fox News at their coverage of the Presidential Inauguration, because when the Marine Corps Marching Band (arguably untouchable in their precision and discipline) went by, they had the sound OFF, while silly blathering of commentators went on and on, which I had no interest in hearing. The new President Trump stood behind glass with a continuous posture of SALUTE, which was nice to see (when is the last time you saw the President salute the Marine Corps Band???) and that kind of made up for not hearing what the Band was playing, strange to say.

    The “Super Bowl” worships at the altar of national excess of materialism and relativism and hedonism and libertarianism and commercialism and profiteering and sloth. The situation is so bad that a restaurant in Stamford, Connecticut, Mitchell’s Fish Market, at which we ate after Holy Mass on Quinquagesima Sunday, February 3, 2008, had a sign on its door to explain that it would be closing for the day at 3:00 p.m. to permit its workers to go home and to watch the “Super Bowl.” What total lunacy, as I explained in rather modulated tones of outright disbelief to the workers who could not believe that a flesh-and-blood American would not consider the “big game” important.

    “I bet you don’t close down for Good Friday, do you, the most solemn day of the year, now do you?” I asked them. Oh, no, everything is wide open on the day upon which our very salvation was wrought for us on the wood of the Most Holy Cross as the Divine Redeemer, Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, shed every single drop of His Most Precious Blood. Baseball teams play games on Good Friday, yes, even in Spring Training and when it falls in the regular season, something that happens this year, Friday, April 14, 2017.  No, there’s no break for the bread and circuses on Sundays and Good Fridays, something that means next to nothing to far, far too many Catholic fathers and grandfathers and uncles and brothers.


    This reminds me, a local "Charter High School" has been starting its school year in the middle of August every year, which many times has put the first or second day of school on August 15th, the Feast of the Assumption, and to top it off, when a traditional Catholic student attempts to be excused to go to Mass they are told by the school staff that the local Catholic bishop has assured them there is no obligation to observe any Holy Day because it has been commuted to the next Sunday.

    So there (Uuuugh).

    But take a wild guess what happens on Rosh Hashanah or Yom Kippur.
    Why, EVERYONE gets the day off, of course.

    She was actually raised Catholic, Novus Ordo of course.

    Had Vatican II never happened, she probably wouldn't have turned out the way she did.
