I’ve been reading How the Catholic Church Built Western Civilization. It’s a fascinating book that makes a very compelling argument for why Catholic-Christianity is responsible for the moral, ethical, and legal basis for Western civilization.
When the author compares some element of Western civilization with the way the pagan world operated in Christ’s time, I am often struck by how similar the pagan world was to the way the Left wants our world to become.
I recommend this book, even if you’re no fan of Catholicism. All of Christianity was Catholic until 1517, by which time Western civilization was well established.
Even where they reject certain Catholic doctrines, most Protestants take Catholic values for granted. This is very evident in the Constitution, which was written by Protestants and which the Left wants to radically alter.
This book can give you a good insight into the political and cultural battles we face today and make it even more clear that it’s not so much a political and cultural battle as it is a spiritual one.
From Ann McElhinney:
I wanted to let you know that our book, Gosnell – The Untold Story of America’s Most Prolific Serial Killer is now available on Audible as an audiobook. I am the narrator.
I didn’t imagine it would be difficult to record the audiobook, but it was. Many times I had to stop and it wasn’t because I made a mistake.
Based on a recommendation from a friend, we hired an audio producer to record the book. Like most of industry people in LA, she was a liberal. But she cried many times during the recording and thanked me for writing this story, which she had never heard of before.
Here is what she said after we finished:
“I had an extraordinary experience with this book. It affected me deeply, and opened my thought to explore this issue in ways I hadn’t considered. McElhinney’s approach to the subject was thoughtful and academic, and it was clear that she took great pains to avoid any specific political bias in the telling of this story. I came away with new insight into the subject.”
She also told the Gosnell story to liberal friends and had played parts of the audio for them and they were all stunned and needed to re-think their position on abortion in the US.
That just confirmed what we already knew about the Gosnell book – those who read it will never be the same again. It has the power to move hearts and change minds.
Not everyone has the time to sit down with the book, so we made the audio version hoping people might be able to listen to it during the work commute or on their walk.

Last week, The New York Times excluded the Gosnell book from its list of best sellers, despite it having been the fourth best selling book in America.
- Their STATED reason is “to provide Times readers our best assessment of what books are the most broadly popular at that time” by considering the “context” of book sales, rather than their numbers!
- Their REAL reason is simple. They don’t like the seamy, disgusting truth this story reveals about the abortion industry in this nation.
Don’t let them suppress this message!
Buy this book: Gosnell – The Untold Story of Americas Most Prolific Serial Killer. Read it. Give it away. Donate it to your library.
The proceeds will help Ann and Phelim get the movie into theaters, something that has also been suppressed by pro-abortion Hollywood.
The Gosnell book is the 4th top-selling hardcover non-fiction title in the country. It SOLD OUT on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and Books A Million.
The NY Times Hardcover Non-fiction Best Sellers List that was announced last night DID NOT LIST IT. Well, the mainstream media refused to cover Gosnell’s trial. Little wonder they’d want to suppress the story even now that he is serving life in prison without possibility of parole.
Fortunately, hardly anybody reads the New York Slime any more, so there’s that. Plus, there’s all those people who ARE reading the book!
Book stores are busy restocking, so get your copy and read about America’s most prolific serial killer.
Mama Buzz just became a dealer for the high quality line of Usborne books that you can’t buy in stores. The company is very supportive of moms like her who LOVE books and wouldn’t mind making a few bucks with a little effort squeezed in around child care, hubby care, making meals, chauffeuring, folding laundry, etc. etc. etc.
I just attended her first Facebook party, which was my first Facebook party also. I didn’t know what to expect, but it turned out to be a lot like any message board with posts and comments. Fun!
And then there’s the BOOKS. So many really good quality books!! Washable, sturdy, lots of age levels and subjects.
If you buy gifts for the kids in your life, check out her Usborne book store! She has raved about the high quality of the construction of the books, so I was very pleasantly surprised by how LOW cost they are!
I especially like the drop down menu on the left for books by age groups, so I can shop for my grandkids. I made a Wish List by clicking the heart at the top. Saw so many titles I want to revisit when I have money to spend or a holiday to shop for.
As everyone knows, Barack Obama recently took the occasion of a memorial service for the murdered Dallas police officers to deliver another idiotic rant on gun control. Among other imbecilic statements, the Pinnochio of Pennsylvania Avenue said the following (and get a load of the expressions on the faces of the cops seated behind him):
Matt Walsh commented:
A lot of people have been critical of the speech because he used it as an opportunity to lecture about race and guns. Some say that it is staggeringly idiotic and cruel to utter even one blatantly political statement at a memorial service for dead cops. Some say that one line in particular will stand out as perhaps one of the dumbest statements ever spoken by a president, especially during an event like this.
The line went as follows:
“We flood communities with so many guns that it is easier for a teenager to buy a Glock than get his hands on a computer or even a book.”
Some say this kind of sentiment belongs in commentaries written by your ill informed aunt on Facebook, not in a speech delivered by the President of the United States at a funeral in front of a bunch of people who, given the location and the occasion, are sure to already differ with him wildly on the issue. Some say this statement — let alone the rest of the speech — proves that Obama is a compulsive liar, manipulator, and probably a sociopath.
Some say these things. But I do not say them. In fact, I would like to defend Obama publicly. It’s easy to make fun of the notion that firearms are easier for a child to obtain than a library book, but the people mocking Obama clearly have not been out in the world recently.
I can tell you that his claims line up perfectly with my own experience. In fact, just last week I went to Barnes and Noble to buy a book only to discover that almost all of the shelves were bare. Instead of books, I found piles and piles of Glocks lying around on the floor. A sign read: “Free Glocks! Please take three.”
I saw several kids eagerly grabbing armfuls of Glocks. I’m assuming they need them because the schools these days don’t assign book reports anymore — they assign gun reports. I’m told that instead of summer reading lists, the kids are given summer shooting lists. If a kid shoots up to 5 guns in a week, he earns a certificate that he can redeem for a free personal pan pizza at Pizza Hut. Even the computer labs at schools these days have been replaced with gun labs. There are guns everywhere.
Anyway, I took three guns myself. Somehow, I did manage to find a book buried under five or six Glocks. I decided to buy it even though it was 750 dollars — the average price for a book in today’s America. I had to produce an ID and pass a background check for the book, of course, but the whole process only took about 45 minutes.
The problem is that I can’t take it outside anywhere because my state doesn’t allow open carry for fiction novels. I did obtain a concealed reading permit, but most public establishments discourage or even ban reading so the permit is basically useless.
On the other hand, I can take my guns anywhere, buy them anywhere, rent them for free from the library, and shoot them wherever I want. The whole situation feels a bit incongruous, if you ask me.
I’m glad the President finally spoke out on this issue, even if he did have to turn a memorial service into a gun control rally to do it. I am so proud of my president!
