Hello there, Steve here.

Though my primary job is traditional Catholic apologetics, I do enjoy playing Internet chess from time to time.

Feel free to visit my website, One Peter Five (popularly known as 1P5) for traditional Catholic news and analysis at: http://onepeterfive.com

It is with great sorrow that I write the following words, and I ask for your patience and forbearance.

I have a wayward child whose privacy I shall protect here, though I have alluded to this sad fact on some of my blog posts at 1P5. Despite the best efforts of my wife and I, this child is determined not only to obstinately persist in certain sins, but to ridicule and oppose my work wherever possible.

Knowing that I play Internet chess from time to time, this child has taken the serious step of creating a false account in my name and posting inflammatory, un-Catholic and slanderous material using this account.

I sincerely apologize and ask forgiveness for any hurt my child has caused, and assure you that this will not ever happen again.

As for my own views, I am a traditional Catholic, affirming the unity of the entire human race (see Pope Pius XII, "Humani generis", 1950) - and I therefore reject and repudiate all forms of racism and theories of racial superiority.

Though I consider homosexual acts a grave and abominable sin (see St. Peter Damien, "Liber Gomorrhianus"), individual homosexuals must be treated charitably and shown the way to repent of their sins and return to Christ and His Church.

As regards other religions, while I completely reject the notion of any salvation outside Christ's Church (see Bl. Pope Pius IX, "Quanta Cura", 1864), I affirm that all those of other faiths should be evangelized in charity and truth, and not by compulsion, violence or abuse. For it is God's will "that all be saved, and come to the knowledge of the truth" (1 Tim. 2:4) - however, it is a sad fact that many voluntarily choose damnation.

Thank you for listening to me, and may the peace of Christ be with you.

Steve Skojec: This is a fix. There is no credible way that all these male GMs could lose to Hou Yifan. Also, note that <Imran Iskandar> is the first to rejoice over it. Why is it that in <Imran Iskandar>'s country of origin, women would be stoned and beheaded for dressing as Hou

Steve Skojec: So loses to 1. b3??? Bwahahaha! Boris Spassky spits on this little affirmative action GM. Go watch Larsen-Spassky to see how to handle 1. b3, Wesley So-So.
