Darth Vader is polling higher than all potential 2016 presidential candidates – (Socon Or Bust on 7/26/2014)
Bwahahaha! None of the 2016 hopefuls is polling higher than Darth Vader. You’ll recall that Vader chopped off his son’s arm and blew up an entire planet, but evidently in the eyes of the American public these are minor sins compared to Benghazi, Bridgegate and Gov. Rick Perry’s hipster glasses. These numbers suggest that if […]

Mark Bonocore explores the relationship between the "patronus" ("patron") and his "clientia" ("clients") in ancient Roman society, and how it illustrates the cultural mentality of someone like St. Paul (and that of his Roman audience) when expressing himself in the Epistle to the RomansRead Article

Any experienced Catholic apologists is quite familiar with "the dance".  An Evangelical Protestant "Bible-alone" believer will accuse the Catholic Church of "error" – of contradicting what the Bible "clearly" teaches, and of following the "traditions of men" rather than the Scriptural Word of God.  's Mark Bonocore takes a look at the Protestant psychological raison d'etre; the nature of what a Catholic apologist is really dealing with.  Read Article
Question:  What is really the proper baptismal formula of words?  If Jesus commanded to baptize in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, then why didn't the apostles do it as seen in the book of Acts where they baptized in the name of Jesus?  Read Answer
One of the most commonly-quoted Shakespearean lines may, in fact, be an intended, but well-disguised, jab at Luther's error of sola fide – that is, "faith alone"Read Article
Art Sippo makes it clear to his correspondent that Protestant objections to temporal punishment are not biblical.  Read Article
A non-denominational Christian friend of Mark Bonocore, who is very interested in becoming a Catholic, has been corresponding with his fellow non-denominationalist and Christian author, Jim Fowler, but has been very disappointed with Mr. Fowler's rather evasive responses.  Fowler claims not to be a Protestant, but merely a "Christian" who does not subscribe to any theological tradition.  Mark supplies his friend with 30 signs that indicate that Fowler "might be a Protestant"Read Article
In this e-mail exchange between guest apologist Brock Restovich and Chad (a Baptist), Chad demonstrates the hole Protestantism has dug for itself in regards to Sacred Tradition, alternately refusing it and relying on it.  View Dialogue
In these twelve exchanges hosted by Christian Apologetics Research Ministry's "Faith and Reason" Web Radio broadcast, Catholic Apologist, Mark Bonocore, and Calvinist Apologist, Matt Slick, discuss the teachings of the Catholic Church.  Topics include Ecclesiology, the Canon of Scripture, Tradition, the Papacy, Mary, Predestination, Justification, Purgatory and many other areas of agreements and disagreements between Catholics and Protestants.  The first exchanges start out rather stoically, but thankfully the latter ones get a bit more impassioned and more interesting.  Mark scores a number of jaw dropping, knock-out blows during this series.  (Click here and here to sample just a couple of them.)  Interestingly, we are uncertain why Mr. Slick is offering only five of these 58-minute discussions for sale when Mark appeared twelve times on his hour long show.  Mark does an absolutely superb job in exposing the inherent weaknesses of Protestant objections to Catholic teaching and showing the inherent weak foundation of Protestantism.  A great resource to share with a Protestant friend.
In this barn-burner of a dialogue, Mark Bonocore takes on Gary Demar on Stu Epperson's TruthTalkLive.com.  As the broadcast makes evident, the Catholic approach to debunking The DaVinci Code is the most effective way of countering the liberal distortions of our time since it incorporates the early Church's historical witness to the divinity of Christ.  The dialogue, however, soon gets off track with both Mark and Gary defending each other's views regarding the Canon, the Church Fathers, and Eschatology among other topics.
Click here to purchase Mark's entire 12 hour dialogue with Matt Slick and Mark's 30-minute dialogue with Gary Demar for only $25.  As a bonus, we will include all other Legate audio presentations for free as well!  All audio presentations are recorded on a single DVD in MP3 format.
