Responding to the MMA Video

Fr. Mike addresses some of the disagreements his audience expressed regarding last week’s video on mixed martial arts. Showing that he wasn’t singling out MMA, he gets to the root of the issue and asks, “Does the entertainment I choose help or harm my commitment to be like Jesus.”

Fr. Mike is also a presenter in these faith formation programs from Ascension:

Belonging: Baptism in the Family of God
Chosen: This is Your Catholic Faith
Altaration: The Mystery of the Mass Revealed
YOU: Life, Love and the Theology of the Body

    Love your videos, and in this one especially, I love the notion that there is a line that we have to consider as Christians. I would love to hear your thoughts on Harry Potter. Where is the line on fantasy books/movies, especially as it relates to kids and parenting?

  • Mr Nobody

    Jesus would never start such an abomination as the Catholic so-called church.
    The Catholic so-called church is the whore of Babylon.
    Catholicism is NOT Christian !!
    See Revelation 17 KJV.

    • OFM

      Obviously you refuse to use what little intelligence God has given to you.

      Mr. Nobody,
      I take it you are NOT a Christian.

      • Unlike you, I am a Christian.
        I am a KJV Bible believing Christian, and have been since 1992.

      • @Kathleen.

        You have NO idea what you’re talking about.
        You need to leave that disgusting & perfidious Catholic cult.. The Whore of Babylon.
        Rev 17 #KJV

          I don’t know what I am talking about? I only asked you a question. first of all you know nothing about me. I made no comments about religion. I have never even been baptized, I am not catholic, but I have studied the history of religion for over 30 years Including interviewing many christians of different denominations. The reason I inquired about your status is that I have found that most followers of Jesus Christ teach love and acceptance of others. You seem very angry and full of rage, hate and judgement. Christians know that humans can not judge, that is left to God. I hope you resolve your issues and find some peace and love in your life. good luck to you. (if you hate catholics so much may I suggest that you find a site that offers you what you seek).

          • That’s correct, you don’t.
            You don’t know me either, and so desist from feeble attempts at judging me.
            A Christian has no choice but to judge, rightly of course, though I am of course not perfect.

            I do not hate catholics. It’s funny that I am always accused of that by the ignorant and presumptuous, when I point out Catholic lies.

            There can be NO so-called fellowship with Catholics. Ecumenism is a SIN !!

            My status as you refer to it, is none of your business.
            2 John 9-11 KJV / AV_1611

  • Gavin

    great video!
    can you do one explaining vatican city and the holy see?

    • That’s quite simple really.
      Vatican City / unholy See = Perfidious Whore of Babylon, the Mother of Harlots and abominations of the earth.
      A #Paedophile cult.

  • Mr Mike Smith who posted his diatribe is NO Christian.

    He has no right whatsoever to refer to himself/or allow others to refer to him as Fr.
    Mathew 23v9. KJV

    The #Catholic so-called church has NEVER been Christian, and it was definitely never started by Jesus Christ.

  • Can anyone tell me what exactly is supposed to be intelligent about being a roman catholic??

    IMHO there’s nothing intelligent about being a part of a disgusting & unbiblical cult.
