The Catholic Church & the State

The Cantankerous Catholic Episode

The Catholic Church & the State

The Church asks for very little from the state. She only asks for religious liberty, which is an inalienable right, and that public servants execute their duties with diligence and honesty. That’s it. In fact, what the Catholic Church asks of the state is the very same thing that every other religion in this country asks. But the Left is making it increasingly difficult for the Church and other Christian religions in America to freely practice our faiths, despite that the first amendment guarantees that the government will protect our God-given rights.

As a matter of fact, the anti-American and anti-constitution Left is doing its level best to tear down and shred the constitution and all that America has traditionally stood for over the last 243 years. Consequently, the federal government has overreached and grabbed more and more power over the people of this country. Rather than government being the servant of the citizenry, it’s quickly becoming a slave owner… and we average everyday Americans are the intended slaves.

Certainly I believe in the power of prayer, and that God can save us and our nation at any time He wants, and without our help. But St. Ignatius of Loyola wisely said that we are to pray as if everything depends on God, but to work as if everything depends on us. Listen to Joe Sixpack—The Every Catholic Guy explain how we can save our nation.

The Cantankerous Catholic Social Media Group

Join our group where subscribers of The Cantankerous Catholic can meet to discuss the issues talked about in episodes, get opinions from other like minded people, or simply discuss anything effecting Catholics.

Don’t like or trust Facebook? No problem!

Joe Sixpack—The Every Catholic Guy doesn’t trust Facebook either. There have been too many instances of censorship on Facebook. If you promote abortion, LGBT issues, or anything anti-patriotic, you’re pretty much guaranteed to be unmolested by Facebook. But if you promote life, decency or morality, Facebook is subject to censor your posts, take down your page, or otherwise use some underhanded method to censor you.

We’ve found an alternative to Facebook. It’s a new social media site called Whether you like President Trump or not, this is the one social media that doesn’t censor you for upholding Catholic values and morals. You’re completely free to discuss and promote anything you want, just as long as it isn’t immoral, indecent, or anti-American. Joe Sixpack—The Every Catholic Guy has been critical of President Trump on a number of issues, as is the right of all Americans. has never molested him in any way, and they guarantee they won’t. The site otherwise works identically to Facebook. That is the reason Joe Sixpack—The Every Catholic Guy chose to host The Cantankerous Catholic Social Media Group there. We have the added benefit and protection of being a private group. So join the group now to meet other like minded Catholics.

Not a Catholic? We’d still love to have you join us. You’ll find that we’re a very welcoming people. (Matthew [25:35])

What We Believe… Why We Believe It—the weekly bulletin insert to educate your parishioners!

No one disputes that today’s Catholic lacks knowledge of the faith.  That’s the reason so many are leaving the Church (6.5 people leave for every one who becomes a Catholic)—they simply don’t know the faith. But the What We Believe… Why We Believe It system can change all that. Within a year of reading What We Believe… Why We Believe It, your parishioners will know exactly what they believe… and be able to defend those beliefs.

 What We Believe… Why We Believe It works because…

  •  It’s intrusive (70% of Catholics get 100% of their information from the weekly bulletin)
  • Each issue is in engaging
  • Far from boring catechism, each issue is highly informative of orthodoxy without being “highbrow”
  • With the website and weekly webinars, your parishioners have a source where they can ask questions when you’re not available

    Catholics are not permitted to use birth control under any circumstances. This is one of the most backward and harmful restrictions in religious canon. Why wouldn’t the church allow safe and effective methods to control the size of families (and population)? Even worse, why would the church object to birth control in the prevention of disease including AIDS and STDs.

      Sorry it’s taken so long to get to this.
      You ask a very good and valid question. I’m afraid it would take too long to answer it here. I’d be happy to engage in an exchange with you via email, if you wish. I think I can answer this to your satisfaction, even if you still disagree. If you’re interested, contact me at I look forward to the exchange.
