By Fr. Shenan J. Boquet / September 21, 2020 /

Last week, I wrote about how the success of the obscene new “song” WAP by Cardi-B has exposed the near-total inversion of truth and moral values in our culture.

Uighur population control camp in China

The mainstream media has suddenly awoken to the fact that China is a genocidal regime.
