84: Supreme Court of Canada Jumps the Shark—Bruce Pardy

7/17/2018
More
Canada has many private colleges and universities. It almost had a Christian law school. The number of these will remain zero for the foreseeable future thanks for a stunning 7-2 decision by Canada’s Supreme Court that forbids the establishment of the Trinity Western Law School in Langley, BC. The reason? Because Trinity Western is an evangelical institution that holds to the traditional biblical view of sexuality, and because prospective students must sign a Covenant Agreement in which...

81: How to watch a movie—Douglas Beaumont

6/26/2018
More
Support the podcast here: www.patrickcoffin.media/donate. Motion pictures have been called the ultimate form of art because they incorporate all previous forms: dance, music, theater, and mime, all in one. They are powerful drivers of, and reflections of, culture. Movie lines become iconic and hence memorable: “We’re going to need a bigger boat.” Jaws “ET phone home.” E.T. the Extraterrestrial “Frankly, my dear, I don’t give a damn.” Gone with the Wind “May the force be with you.”...

80: Will America perish without Rome?—Timothy Gordon

6/19/2018
More
This is fascinating. What is the nature of the great experiment called “America”? We say that Poland is a Catholic country, India is a Hindu country, and Turkey is a Muslim country, and so on. We also say America is a Christian country. But in what sense? Because the majority are followers of Jesus? But Jesus isn’t mentioned in the Constitution, the Declaration of Independence, or the Bill of Rights—the Christian religion is nowhere endorsed as the state religion. My guest this week...

79: What is Coffin Nation, anyway?

6/12/2018
More
Greetings, my fellow culture builders: As you probably know, the thing I've been hinting at and quietly building for many months is finally here. Since we're only opening the doors twice a year, this is the only Inside Scoop that will mention it until the winter. Last Friday evening, the light turned green and people began signing up for "citizenship" (aka membership) in Coffin Nation and haven't stopped since. If you haven't seen the trailer, it's short, sweet, and here:...

Did you hear that our premium community os coming up? Learn more HERE, you do wan't to miss out! Michael J. Knowles the a Yale-bred host of two-thirds of The Daily Wire platform begun by Ben Shapiro. He “wrote” a clever “book” titled Reasons To Vote Democrat: A Comprehensive Guide Very few commentators anywhere in the mediasphere are out of the closet Catholics who actually accept all the teachings of the Church, which is why Mr. Knowles caught my attention. (Everyone reading this can...

76: What the Bleep Happened to Ireland—John Waters

5/22/2018
More
Ireland was once known and loved as the land of saints and scholars. Stout in its Catholicism and justly proud of its traditions of literature, of art and of Guinness—along with a veritable factory of holy missionaries to places like Africa—Ireland has taken a slow tumble into chaos. The Irish have fled the church pews like rats from the Titanic in the last 30 years; Catholic leadership on the old sod has been badly hobbled by scandal and tepid leadership; and, corporately, the Irish...

72: Does Fatherlessness Cause Atheism? Dr. Paul Vitz

4/24/2018
More
Are atheists uniformly dedicated to truth and evidence, to rational thought and logic? Might there be a hidden causal factor at play in more cases than one would imagine? Psychologist and researcher Dr. Paul Vitz thinks so. It’s fatherlessness. His latest book, Faith of the Fatherless: The Psychology of Atheism, sets forth the case that abusive, absent, or weak fathers very often provide the psychological soil from which atheist weeds are more likely to fester. Using example after example...

Dalbey’s books with great profit since the mid-90s. One of the first Christian leaders to address the crisis of masculinity, Dalbey has laid his hand on an urgent and increasingly obvious problem: men don’t know how to be men. The source of the problem is multiform: the throwaway divorce...

70: Why Does Music Move Us So?—Morten Lauridsen

4/10/2018
More
The emotional, some say spiritual, effect music has on us is notoriously difficult to put into words. It’s sort of like analyzing why something is funny. The reality ever exceeds our verbal grasp. Why are minor chords sad and majors happy? Why, when you hear a song from your childhood is there a superglue of emotion attached, bringing you instantly to those moments long ago? This week’s guest is one of the greats in the choral music world. If you enjoy music with a lush, cinematic sound...

69: We Are Hardwired for Beauty—Christopher West

4/3/2018
More
Christopher West has devoted his adult life to communicating the beauty of the Catholic Faith, particularly through the insights of what’s known everywhere as the Theology of the Body. First in archdiocesan religious education, then with the Theology of the Body Institute, and now with The Cor Project, West has been out in front, pointing out the Source of Beauty, making connections between superficially disperate dots, and, of course, being the world’s most famous expositor of the...

68: Protestant YouTube Star Becomes Catholic—Lizzie Estella Reezay

3/27/2018
More
She didn’t want to do it. No way, no how. Not becoming Catholic. Lizzie was an established and very popular presence in the “young Protestant dispenses advice to the like-minded” space on YouTube; she grew up in the Church of Christ and imbibed the standard myths about Catholicism. She might pray for Catholics, but become one? Riiiiiight. Attending Pepperdine University in Malibu, CA, Lizzie began to run into fellow Protestants who were either intensely interested in the Faith or had...

67: The Evangelical Power of Beauty—Jonathan Pageau

3/20/2018
More
Is art just a luxury for the wealthy? Can there even be a definition for it? How did the Incarnation of the Logos change the world? What did Dostoyevsky mean by having one of his characters in The Idiot say, “in the future, man will be saved by beauty?” Jonathan Pageau possesses a unique combination of gifts. He is an extraordinary artist, chiefly in the area of carving and iconography (feast your eyes and soul on his stunning work at www.pageaucarvings.com), and he is an articulate...

66: Making Sense of Pope Francis—Philip Lawler

3/13/2018
More
I keep having the same exchange with my seriously Catholic friends whenever Pope Francis comes up in conversation. It goes something like this: we were enthused about the initial days of the election (he was saying things about evangelization that needed saying, he encouraged us to get out of “mindset ruts” and bring the gospel to the peripheries since the periphery dwellers aren’t knocking on the church door) and then….something happened to the enthusiasm. Troubling things were said...
