Men of Greatness Vol 4 A continuation lecture series based on GC Dilsaver's Book The Three Marks of Manhood, we discuss A Husband's Love and Devotion for His Wife, Marital Procreativity, and the Humility of the Christian Ruler
Resurrecting Manhood Today How do we identify manhood today? More and more today the gender roles are being blurred. Yet society is demanding for a return of real men. In this exciting new series we identify where real manhood fits into society through his God-given role in Catholic marriage and the Catholic family.
Husbands Love your WivesIn St. Paul's writings, he tells wives to be submissive to their husbands, and he tells husbands to love their wives as Christ loves the Church. This series discusses this command to husbands.
Just DadsBy virtue of his God-given role in the family the father is the head. He needs no degree, and need not be a theologian, just a dad. But he should be a "just" dad, he must be fair and lead his family unselfishly.
Feminist Lies The feminist agenda has sold our wives and daughters a bill of goods with lies promising a wonderful life of prosperity and fulfillment that almost always ends in frustration and anxiety, often resulting in divorce. Learn how to pick out these common lies.
Catholic Manhood Today is the Handbook for young men that describes
predominant masculine traits we naturally possess, how to develop them,
and how to implement them into the basic roles of society. With
numerous references to the Catechism of the Catholic Church and
Scripture, the masculine virtues of strength, training, commitment,
focus, standards, discipline, and faith are laid out with real-life
examples and stories. Then those virtues are applied to the most basic
and fundamental interest of young men: relationships. As the young man
matures and moves from a son in a home to a man in the world he works
to become independent, then interdependent forming various
relationships. Then he aims to form an intimate relationship with a
spouse, leading her, then becoming a father, and guiding those children
of his own.
The disintegration of the family today, even among Catholics, is no accident but actually an orchestrated attack in order to destroy the Church Herself by Communists and Masons. Listen to these errors and see if they sound familiar. Now is the time to reject cultural Marxism and return to traditional marriage roles.

Hello, everyone, and welcome back to Fix the Family. My name is Raylan Alleman, and we are bringing you truth without compromise for the family. Welcome to our blog edition. A little Quick Fix for you, the unplugged edition of Fix the Family here on this May 26, 2016. And if you’ve followed us for the past six years or so you realize that the crux of our message pretty much is that God has a design for the family. And that is a traditional lifestyle of the traditional roles of male and female, the husband being the head and the wife being the heart, and she is submissive to him, and the whole matter of the mother raising her own children and all those things. When we follow that design, it’s just amazing. We have so many families we know across a wide spectrum of people, that when you follow that design, you’re going to have some good success. And whenever you decide to go opposite, you’re going to have some problems, pretty much no matter who you are or what financial class you’re in or any of those things.
And we’ve noticed that. We’ve lived that, and we’ve seen a bunch of other people that are following the ways of the world that are having loads and loads of problems, even though they might try to do their spirituality right, try to do their religion right. They’re not living right in their families and they have very many problems. So here we are presenting this message to you, to try to share that with you so that we don’t make those similar mistakes and have those kind of problems. We’ve got some video in production now that is going to shed some more light on this but if you go to this website, www.romans10seventeen.org, there’s a priest on there that they have uploaded his homilies from past few years, some at least 10 years old. And we’re going to put those links in here on the description, so that you can get to them. But if you go there and you go to the search box and put in “Russia” there are three different homilies, the country “Russia,” and he lays out pretty much an agenda that has come out in order to destroy the Church. The twofold attack there is on the priesthood and on the family. And so we obviously pay more attention to that one that is an attack on the family. And what we have there is pretty much a hundred year old plus, hundred-plus year old agenda that has been orchestrated quite effectively to disintegrate the family. And it was done by Communists acting through the Masons.
What I want to do in this, we’re going to explore this in depth over these next few Quick Fixes, but what I just want to do here is to outline eight particular points.You can go through the catalogue through the portfolio of our YouTube videos and through our blog and you can see if any of this sounds familiar.But there are eight attack points by these Marxists, and although we don’t necessarily practice Communism in this country politically full bore, I mean we’re moving in that direction obviously in the United States, cultural Marxism is here. Just listen to this. I got it for you, and this was culled from a work by Friedrich Engels.Mr. Engels was the coauthor with none other Karl Marx of The Communist Manifesto, so he was his partner.But he also did an additional work called The Origin of Family, Private Property, and the State. And this is in 1884, 1884. And these were the eight points culled from that work of their attack, their agenda that they wanted to put into place:
Women must be able to work in the factories on an equal basis with men.
Divorce must be made free and easy.
Definite roles of the two sexes must be eliminated.
The notion of woman as housekeeper must be eliminated, and housework must be seen as an industry.
Childcare must be turned over to the community.
The stigma and even the concept of illegitimacy has to be eliminated.
The definition of family has to be made flexible and open.
Sexual activity should be unrestrained.
Now we can see that all of these eight elements are pretty much the norm, pretty much the norm in the United States of America and most of the western world.Not only that but we have Catholics, good Catholics who are quite often seen practicing those eight items, those eight practices of Marxism. So here we have Catholic American Marxism pretty much as the norm in our culture and we wonder why we have problems. It’s not an accident. It’s an agenda, and it has been orchestrated effectively. We’re going to explore these more in depth on some future quick fixes, but the time is now to reject these errors that have been thrust upon us, that have been woven into our society.
So come back and see us for some more here at Fix the Family. Thanks for coming by. God bless you.
The American Muslim sympathizer in chief has ordered that federal funds be withheld from government schools that don't accommodate use of female restrooms by "transgender" males. This is an urgent call from Catholic dads to protect our daughters. Homeschooling is the answer.
Hello everyone welcome back to Fix the Family. My name is Raylan Alleman and we are bringing you truth without compromise for the family.
This is your unplugged version, our quick fix, little blog video edition, on this May 19, 2016.That’s correct, the beginning of the 2016 season, our seventh season that we’re starting with this particular video here.And unfortunately, people, we have a very grave matter to discuss in this video, because about a week or so ago, maybe a little less, the United States czar, I can’t refer to him as a president, but the Muslim sympathizer, Barack Hussein Obama put forth a directive that federal funds be withheld from those public schools that would not allow for transgender use of either restroom of their choice of these particular individuals.This is what is going on in the United States school system, or what is being proposed.
And look, here this is not a news program, we don’t do politics in general, but this particular matter is grave and it affects the family, it affects innocent children. And so we have to bring that to your attention and propose a way for Catholic families, for Catholic men to deal with it. So what we have going on is a definite agenda.I don’t want to assess the abilities of the particular man who occupies the White House right now, but it appears to me that he operates pretty much as a pawn of an agenda that is much bigger than he is.So this is not anything that is going to end anytime soon.And understand we do need to address this politically. So men we do need to be involved politically in this, and some of the states have already addressed this.And they’re adding by the day; they’re adding to the number.Our particular governor who appears to have been sold out since we lost our good Catholic governor, Bobby Jindal, to term limits.The current governor has said nothing about it; however, we have a very good Catholic Attorney General, Jeff Landry, who has addressed this situation.And let me give you his assessment of what he calls this particular situation.He says:
“The Obama administration irresponsibly creates an environment in which children may be more easily exposed to sexual predators. Furthermore these irresponsible and illegally promulgated rules place the mental well-being and privacy rights of 99% of Louisiana’s children at risk [and that all of our country’s children, but he’s dealing with Louisiana] without any demonstrable evidence of benefit to the less than 1% of the population this policy purports to benefit.”
Now that is a warning from a legal standpoint of the situation that we are in.How much more grave is the threat from a moral standpoint? Dads, Catholic dads, this is in the United States, we have viewers around the world, but in the United States here, dadswe’ve been telling you, you can look through our portfolio of YouTube videos about protecting our daughters, protecting our wives and daughters.We are the head of the house to be able to protect, not to oppress but to protect.What’s going on with this man in Washington, that’s oppression, that’s political tyranny.But first and foremost, state of emergency, we have to protect our kids.
Part of our platform has been homeschooling.How much more of a reason now, immediate reason, to homeschool.At least, we’re at the end of the school year here, lay the ground work and get ready to homeschool your children the next school term at the very least.They are in danger with what is being proposed now.Because it isn’t going to just stop with this president.
We’re going to come to you with some video and some content on what has been over 100-year agenda of what’s going on right now. It’s blatantly, plainly obvious of what’s going on.It’s part of a very long term plan of the enemies of God and the enemies of the Church to destroy the Church by destroying the family.We are here to address that.So first and foremost protect your children. Homeschool your children. Protect your daughters.
You’ve got your Targets of the world.You can just decide not to go shop there. But these kids are in these schools, and they have to use these facilities. If this kind of thing goes on and goes through they will be exposed. So we as dads need to protect our Children.
That’s the Quick Fix for today.As far as season 7 and what we’ve got coming forward: What is virtually complete that we have been talking about for a long time is Catholic Manhood Today.This the first book that we are going to publish. It is a primer for the 20-something young man, Catholic young man.It gives a lot of the virtues of manhood, of masculinity and how to place them into the relationships growing from adolescence into adulthood, and becoming a leader throughout the home and the community.So that’s going to be coming to you.
We also have a video coming very soon of the Citabelles.The Citabelles are back.They did a great video on the book See You in Heaven. I just reviewed that, and that’s going to go into production so that we can put that in clips for you to easily digest and easily have.The ladies did an excellent job with that video.
Coming up also is going to be video production, we are going to redo our original platform of The Family Matters and the revised version of that is going to be called Catholic Family Today.We’re going to have that whole thing updated and fresh and available on DVD.So what you want to do as far as the book Catholic Manhood Today, it’s going to be coming out, should be toward the end of May, early June.Watch the website.Watch the Facebook page.It’ll be available at Amazon.com almost exclusively.So easy purchase there for you.A great book that’s going to address a void for Catholic masculinity in today’s world, in today’s terms with an immediate urgency to get that addressed.
Keep coming back to us.Thanks for coming by. God bless you.
I have great news for you ladies out there: It’s OK to be a woman. Actually, in many cases it’s a wonderful thing. If that’s the gender in which God created you, it’s a beautiful thing to be a woman. It appears that at least in the Western world today, being a woman is just totally unfair, and instead you have to be just like a man. And if you can’t be just like a man, you have to join a brigade of militant feminists to fight for your rights to be just like a man. Why, after all you should even be able to go and die for your country if you feel so inclined.
The problem with all these agenda of the militant feminists is that they are hostile to those women (most) who wish to just be ladies. This has taken on all sorts of manifestations in all spheres of society. A little girl is immediately sent to school once she is a certain age to begin the indoctrination. She will start out in pre-school and may wish to play with a baby doll which is natural but then is forced to play with a tractor that she really has no interest in. During the course of her academic career she my feel in her heart that she wants to be a wife and mother in the home as our Church elevates, but she will be humiliated and coerced into choosing a field of study that will propel her into a “fulfilling and lucrative career” so that she won’t have to depend on her husband. If she manages to hold to her convictions and does find a man who will value her femininity to marry and they live as the Church teaches being open to children and having a large family society will look down on her as a second rate citizen. Oh, but those types won’t have the courage to say so to her face. They are polite up front. When asking a committed full-time wife and mother what she does and receiving the response, they will say something like “Oh, that’s so good” with a polite smile, while really thinking in the back of their minds “Oh that poor, poor woman. She’s trapped.” They see her as second rate because she is not producing an income. They would never say that. They will accuse the husband as seeing her as second rate because he is “forcing” her to stay home and not “allowing” her to go out and work.
These are all defense mechanisms that naturally kick in to those who have been blinded by the feminist lies all around in our society. They take on various degrees, forms, and manifestations. I heard of probably the most severe one recently from a friend. His little girl had a severe illness that required an extended hospital stay and some long-term treatment. He and his wife have 7 other children, and his wife is a stay at home mother. During the course of the hospital stay and treatment there were various levels of male and female healthcare providers that cared for the little girl-nurses, techs, medical students, fellows, interns, doctors, and specialists. They each individually noticed a stark contrast among ALL the providers with one possible exception. ALL of the male providers were very attentive, compassionate, and connecting with the little girl, making sure she was comfortable, asking if she needed anything, even what her doll’s name was. ALL of the female providers (except possibly 1) were all business, cold, with no bedside manner. They were stunned. They asked a medical provider who also would be one to see things as they do from a religious and philosophical standpoint the reason for this contrast. They were told that it is a clear defense mechanism. Those women see a mother with a husband and many children and realize they are never going to have that kind of life. They have accumulated so much debt and are so far into their commitment to their field that their job will be their life.
For Catholic women, it’s not supposed to be that way. This situation is an outgrowth of a Western covetous culture that values possessions over people. The contraceptive pill has destroyed the family fabric of our culture and is a fundamental tool of this lifestyle. It is what robs a female of her womanhood. When a female is sexually active she will normally eventually become pregnant. That’s what healthy females do. For a Catholic woman, this should only be within the loving permanent commitment of a marriage so that the child will be raised in a functional normal household with a mother and a father. Pope Francis has said that children deserve this. If she doesn’t become pregnant then something is wrong; she is said to be “infertile.” Contraception is not medicine. It makes healthy women sick and dysfunctional. Females who mutilate their bodies by removing their reproductive organs DISABLE their womanhood. This is an affront to God and His creation. Feminists will actually come out and say that women are not meant to be “brood mares, always pregnant.” What a disgusting way to refer to the transmission of human life, to give life to a soul. Catholics need to realize when they are being told or are themselves telling evil maxims of the devil. The Church has always elevated motherhood for married women and has always reinforced the primacy of bearing and raising children as the purpose of marriage. When women follow the pagan trends of a culture, they move away from the principles advocated by Holy Mother Church and degrade themselves.
We want you to know that it is not only OK, but actually beautiful for women to be women. Even further, it is VITAL for the culture to sustain itself. In the past when my wife and I have prepared couples for marriage, we would tell them some of these things. When telling us about themselves they would say the things they thought we wanted to hear and what society accepts as “responsible” like getting a degree and pursuing a career. When we would reply with the facets of a genuine Catholic lifestyle, they actually seemed relieved as though they knew it all along and would be happy to pursue this lifestyle. In most cases unfortunately, society and parental influence would override their natural inclinations (with the assistance of contraception). We see this and hear about this regarding many Catholic parents. I would just have to say to them to remember the words of the Lord with regard to the influence over children: “It would be better for him if a millstone were put around his neck and he be thrown into the sea than for him to cause one of these little ones to sin.” (Luke 17:2)
In this final segment of the Catholic Masculinity series, we discuss the matter of faith in a man's life, the aspect of faith as a gift, and then how faith relates to the reality and necessity of money.
