The Cantankerous Catholic Episode

Husbands & Wives

Main Topic:

Scenario: Okay, you’re sitting in the family room watching your favorite team playing ball while slurping down a brewski. You’re kicked back relaxing, slouched down on the sofa with your feet rested on the coffee table. The stresses of your job are a thousand miles away, the kids are all busy with whatever keeps them occupied and you’re happy to be having a little “me time”. About the time you begin thinking life just doesn’t get any better than this, your beautiful partner walks into the room. Your wife (secretly known to you as “the warden”) is staring holes in you. You do your best to pretend you don’t notice the daggers being thrown at you from her eyes… then she crosses her arms and you realize you’d better acknowledge her before your peaceful existence and life as you know it cease to exist. You look at her, flash your most heartwarming boyish smile and ask, “What’s up, honey?” She replies, “Your feet. On the coffee table. Get ‘em off!”

Question: Your peaceful, care-free day is shattered now. How should you react? What should you say? What should you do?

The possible answers to these questions are like walking through a mine field, but Joe Sixpack—The Every Catholic Guy gives you the solid Catholic teachings to this… to keep husbands alive and wives out of prison.

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])

Catechism Of The Catholic Church


“The greatest tragedy in the Catholic Church is the ignorance of the laity.”—Blessed John Henry Cardinal Newman


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
