What Listeners Say About The Cantankerous Catholic

God is good all the time and this podcast is proof of this. You will never regret spending time with Joe and learning the One True Faith. Joe is a warrior for the faith and his Sixpack Warriors.

One of the BEST Catholic podcasts out there. NO Church of Nice talk is tolerated. Everything is straight-up, unabashed TRUTH. Love the new segment with Bishop Strickland.

Very informational. I learn something new about the faith each time. Absolutely love and enjoy!

I learn something every time. Joe helps me learn the faith I wasn't taught as a child. Excellent!

Yup, he can be cantankerous. He says a lot of things that are difficult to hear and you kinda wish weren’t true, but deep down we really know they are. We need a guy like Joe to remind us of what we are headed for if we bury our head in the sand. On the other hand he shows how good life will be by following the teachings of Jesus.

Absolutely love this podcast! It is so refreshing to hear the Truth spoken in love. All honesty and no pulled punches! Keep up the great work Joe!

Relates true Catholic teaching and backs it up with supports from the Bible, Catechism of the Catholic Church, and papal encyclicals and documents, the writings of the ancient teachers in the Church.

This a take no prisoners podcast. You could easily get be offended if you don't know the Catholic Faith or are not sincere in wanting to know more. Joe doesn't back away from anything. I find it always interesting. His stories at the end and quotes are great. Mandatory Wednesday (day its dropped) listening.

No holds barred truth! I love it. (I’m enjoying Joe’s webinars too; very educational.) Bless you, Joe, and thanks for your hard work!

The Cantankerous Catholic

 The Catholic Church exists on three planes: the Church Victorious (the souls in heaven), the Church Suffering (those who will go to heaven when finished in purgatory), and the Church Militant (that would be us fighters left on earth). There's a reason why the Church refers to herself as militant—we're the front line in Christ's army to spread the Good News. We have another function too.

We have to fight for orthodoxy and demand it from our bishops and priests! We've had it with namby-pamby milquetoast and we're not taking it anymore! The bishops owe us orthodoxy and stellar liturgies, and we're gonna make sure they give it to us!

This is the age of the laity and we're ready to fight. We demand to have our Catholic Church and her constant 2000 year teachings returned to us! No more namby-pamby. No more milquetoast. No more Kumbaya. No more Fr. Feelgood.

Join us now by subscribing and listening to  The Cantankerous Catholic every week. We won't accept anything less than absolute orthodoxy... NOT ANYMORE!

Joe Sixpack—The Every Catholic Guy reaches out to thousands of Catholics every single day. He's on a mission to "restore all things in Christ" (Ephesians 1:10) in the Catholic Church in America, one soul at a time. Joe works to re-catechize the laity by getting catechetical bulletin inserts into parishes, hosting weekly webinars in the Sharing the Catholic Faith series, and hosting this podcast, and writing a number of books.

Morons, miscreants, malcontents, and other assorted Marxists and Satanists who pose as Bishops, Priests, and politicians have come in during the dark of night and they've stolen our beloved Catholic Church and our nation. It's time to take them back, and that's exactly what we're gonna do. We're getting our Church and nation back!

Joe Sixpack—The Every Catholic Guy is building a different sort of army that he's calling the Sixpack Warriors. In each and every episode of The Cantankerous Catholic he gives you the commentary, the catechesis, the apologetics and the politically incorrect leadership to be able to confront the enemy and make the bad guys afraid—very afraid. Unfortunately, war isn't without cost. You can certainly train to get into this fight without contributing a dime, and we'd be proud to work with you, but it would be appreciated if you'd help out in some way. Please help Joe Sixpack—The Every Catholic Guy in his mission. Share in the actual graces God gives through this apostolate by using the button below to set up a monthly or one time gift.

Be a Catholic Who Goes From Turmoil to Peace!

Every five hundred years, it seems, Christianity faces some historic crisis that changes the face of the Church: the fall of the Roman Empire, the Great Schism, the Protestant Reformation. The crisis that is upon us now, the clash between faith and materialism, has been building for decades, and its final outcome is uncertain. But one thing is certain: WE WIN! I know this to be true, because I've read God's book and know how it ends.

Because of all the turmoil, uncertainty and confusion, the Catholic laity aren't at peace. The only way to achieve peace is through prayer and penance, but that doesn't make sense to most modern Catholics, because they lack a competent knowledge and understanding of our holy and ancient faith. The obvious remedy, then, is to gain the necessary knowledge and understanding. There is no better way to do that than to read the groundbreaking books Joe Sixpack—The Every Catholic Guy  has written for that purpose.

"The gospel letters, though written thousands of years ago, are supposed to draw me closer to God. They, for the most part, don't. You do. YOUR words are more effective in reaching me. I know, for the most part, what the apostles have said. I'm looking for someone who can relate it to today. I have a greater chance of returning back to the flock with what you do."
