Bob Toews is my recent guest Lucas Fehr’s step-father. Bob is a non-practicing Catholic who grew up Mennonite but was baptised in the United Church of Canada. He was Confirmed in the Catholic Church in his thirties, but has been disenchanted by recent attempts to curb the Spirit of Vatican II.Continue reading “Catholic vs. Catholic – 2018-12-28 – Bob Toews”
In this Meta episode I flesh out the three steps to Roman Catholicism after allowing Satan to strip me of all my faith and (almost) all of my reason.Continue reading “CVS Meta – 2019-01-20 – Doubt and the architecture of belief”
Going into this I knew nothing about Mr. Ra, but from his picture I knew I had a real character on my hands. He did not disappoint. The more I listen to him, the more I like him. I have a special fondness for that charming combination of gruff hostility and naive innocence. And he’s funny, too–I have never laughed so much during an interview.Continue reading “Catholic vs. Atheist – 2018-12-22 – Aron Ra”
Thoth and I discussed cosmology, the nature and reality of political and religious authority, and, indirectly, theodicy, or the problem of evil. There is much unresolved philosophical tension between us, but it was nice to chat with my old friend, nonetheless.
In this Meta episode I discuss the history of the 21 ecumenical councils, and the heresies and schisms that accompany these most sacred councils.
Maggie has worked with fellow Sedevacantist Stephen Heiner, whom I interviewed recently. She is busy wife and mother, a published indie author, and she also moderates a group on FB called Catholics Against Modernism. I enjoyed our chat.
Stephen is a Sedevacantist. He lives in Paris, where he writes and manages small businesses. He writes on culture, the permanent things, and all things French. He also served in the United States Marine Corps Reserve as a Nuclear Biological and Chemical Defense Specialist.
This interview was vetoed by my guest, a Muslim man who shall remain unnamed to protect his identity. In this, my first ever post-mortem episode, I dissect the interview in an attempt to understand why it was killed.
I met Meagan at a party through mutual friends. She is a professional singer by trade, and an Anglican by faith. During our friendly chat we drank tea from fine porcelain china and nibbled on home-made banana bread. I felt right at home.
Andrew is a scholar and a gentleman. I was referred to him by the pastor of a local Church29 congregation. We talked over lunch and so the sound quality isn’t great. My voice was hoarse from arguing with atheists at Skeptics in the Pub the night before.
