1P5 Podcast #56 – Alexander Tschugguel

Today on the podcast, Steve talks with Alexander Tschugguel, most famously known for removing the Pachamama idols that were kept in Santa Maria in Transpontina during the Amazon synod and disposing of them in the Tiber river. Alexander is also the founder of the St. Boniface Institute, based in Vienna, Austria, which is dedicated to opposing paganism, globalism, and other forms of infiltration within the Church. In this episode, we discuss the reaction to the Pachamama tossing and the work of the St. Boniface Institute as yet another front rises in the battle against the infiltration of the Church.

In this episode, Steve Skojec talks with Catholic attorney Joseph Dion about their shared experiences with the Legionaries of Christ & Regnum Christi, an investigation into their illicit activities in the early 2000s that may have contributed to the disciplinary actions taken against their disgraced founder, Marcial Maciel, in 2006, & the plight of those priests may want to leave the order but can’t.

Ep. 47 – New Threats to Catholic Student at Providence College; Pope’s “Born Gay” Remarks Go Viral

Today’s podcast was also produced on video. Please tell us what you think! Guests: Michael Smalanskas, recent Theology & Philosophy graduate (Magna Cum Laude) and former Resident Advisor at Providence College; Catholic author, speaker, and gay outreach evangelist Joseph Sciambra. Description: Michael Smalanskas, a senior at the Dominican-run Providence College in Rhode Island, was required as a dormitory Resident Advisor to keep a bulletin board updated with informational materials of his choosing. After seeing a bulletin board in another dorm promoting lesbian marriage, Smalanskas decided to put up a pro-marriage bulletin board featuring Scripture and Church teaching on the sacrament. What ensued was a campaign of harassment and intimidation from other students and Resident Advisors, and the cold shoulder from the school’s administration — even after Michael received a drawing he says threatened him with rape. After significant media attention, the president of the college — a Dominican priest — finally released what read as a reluctant statement of condemnation of such acts. But as graduation approached, Michael found himself facing a new threat: murder. And once again, administration did nothing – except blame the victim. ALSO (Go to 41:38): Pope Francis recently made headlines again after allegedly telling Chilean sex abuse victim Juan Carlos cruz — a homosexual — that “God made you like this. God loves you like this. The Pope loves you like this and you should love yourself and not worry about what people say.” Former gay man, author, and founder of outreach and apostolate programs for those afflicted with same-sex attraction, Joseph Sciambra, explains why the pope’s comments are doing much more harm than good. NOTE: After this podcast was recorded, Michael Smalanskas informed us that the college had a restraining order served against him at work today. The college has also issued a no trespass directive against him — even though he’s supposed to be getting married on campus in a matter of weeks. UPDATE: Steve Maurano, who identified himself as a spokesman for Providence College, contacted us tonight with the following statement: “A civil restraining order was issued by the court after Mr. Smalanskas’ unacceptable conduct toward a member of our community on campus this past weekend. Because of the serious nature of his actions, the College has restricted his access to campus.” When we asked whether they could provide any details on the alleged “unacceptable conduct” — conduct that Smalanskas is denying ever took place with a member of the faculty who has been oppositional towards his position in the past — we were told, “We have no further comment at this time.” With that in mind, here’s the contact info for everyone we could find in the President’s office: Office of the President Harkins Hall, Room 218 Phone: 401.865.2055 Rev.

1P5 Podcast #57 – What Use Is Alternative Catholic Media

In a recent article, John Paul II biographer and Catholic author George Weigel suggested that among the New Year’s resolutions the faithful should adopt this year, they should, “Resolve to limit … exposure to the Catholic blogosphere. In 2019, many Catholic websites went bonkers. There is no need to click on sites that specialize in all-hysteria or all-propaganda all-the-time.” It appears he was talking about alternative/independent media like 1P5. So, have we really outlived our usefulness? Steve Skojec seeks to answer that question in this episode of the podcast.

Ep. 45 – The Benedict Letter | Vatican Legal Threat vs. Infovaticana

Guests: Hilary White, Catholic journalist and blogger; Michael Hichborn, President of The Lepanto Institute; Gabriel Ariza, Founding Editor of InfoVaticana.com. Description: The letter from Pope Benedict praising Pope Francis was written in response to a request that he write something about a new 11-volume set of books on the theology of Pope Francis. Even before the photo of the letter presented to media was altered by the Vatican, the letter has blossomed into controversy over the authenticity of Vatican’s presentation of who Benedict is and what he really thinks. Hilary White, who recently wrote an in-depth report on Benedict’s career, joins Steve to discuss the issues in play. ALSO: The Vatican is threatening the Spanish-language independent Catholic news website InfoVaticana with a lawsuit if they do not desist using their name — which includes the word Vatican — and turn over their domain ownership the the Vatican Secretariat of State. Steve talks to Michael Hichborn of the Lepanto Institute and Gabriel Ariza, founder of InfoVaticana, in the hopes of getting to the bottom of why the Vatican has hired the second largest website in the world in an attempt to crush a small, Catholic news site.

On the latest episode of the 1P5 Podcast, Steve drops the latest numbers on coronavirus before pivoting to an article from Church Militant alleging multiple instances of sexual abuse or coverup within the Society of Saint Pius X – as well as the role overt bias plays in the credibility of such stories. (In a late addendum to the show, Steve discusses the SSPX response, published today.) Also: a new survey has been sent out to dioceses from the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, asking them about their thoughts and experiences with the Traditional Latin Mass under the guidelines offered by Pope Benedict XVI’s 2007 motu proprio letter, Summorum Pontificum. But what deeper agenda does the survey hint at? Steve examines the questions it asks. At the 43:41 mark, our special guest, Steven Mosher, head of the Population Research Institute and author of a number of books on China, including the recent Bully of Asia: Why China’s Dream is the New Threat to World Order, joins the program to discuss China’s responsibility for what he believes was an intentional spreading of the COVID-19 virus that has caused a global pandemic, and what has really been happening in China since the outbreak began.
