Children & The Ideal Family
Hillary Clinton infamously told us that it takes a village to rear a child. Baloney! What it takes to rear a child are committed and loving parents… especially fathers. And although children aren’t born with an instruction manual in their little hands, we still have an inerrant instruction manual at our disposal, but the vast majority of parents are really too lazy to use it. Of course, I’m talking about the Bible.
Listen to this second part of The Family Survival Guide to see how the Bible, the Catholic faith and your family can become a modern social trophy that everyone will want to imitate!
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 TrumpTown.com. 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. TrumpTown.com 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 JoeSixpackAnswers.com website and weekly webinars, your parishioners have a source where they can ask questions when you’re not available
