• Welcome

    Thank you so much for visiting my site.

    I'm a Catholic apologist and speaker. That means I specialize in defending the Catholic faith: the existence of God; the historicity of Jesus; the truth claims of the Catholic Church.

    I hope to do it in an relatable way that will help you learn the faith and defend it with charity and confidence.

  • We destroy arguments and every proud obstacle to the knowledge of God, and take every thought captive to obey Christ. 2 Corinthians 10:5

Recenlty Dr. Greg Popcak published a blog entitled, “New Research Suggests Porn is NOT an Addiction. It is a Compulsion. Here’s Why That Matters.”... Read More

0101dantecolor A Meditation on the Reality of Porn Through The Lens of Dante

Dante with Beatrice To the degree in which we recognize the reality behind the fantasy of pornography will be the degree to which we wish to renounce it. This is because pornography isn’t simply poor taste or unsophisticated, but depraved. Wicked. There is a very interesting moment in Canto XIX of Dante’s Purgatorio which sheds light on this reality. Meditating... Read More

Also, I’ve tried to make it a reasonably fair exchange between Martin (the Protestant) and Justin... Read More
