SWORD OF DAMO-CLES

Sword of Damo-cles #7 – Discipline

Discipline. Not just a word describing the Toronto Argonauts secret to success at the 100th Grey Cup. It’s a word that must be engrained in the entire pro-life movement. The culture war, the battle for a culture of life, is far from over. It’s just the beginning. And don’t let anyone tell you differently.

Sword of Damo-cles #6 – Smash-mouth on Marriage

To some, the fight for traditional marriage may seem like 4th-and-forever on your own 2-yard line.  But until that buzzer of all final buzzers sounds, the fight continues.  And thanks to some dedicated NFL’ers, marriage has received a much-needed shot in the arm.  Oh, how I miss using sports lingo!

Sword of Damo-cles #5 – Thanksgiving, with a side of misogyny

The following gravy-boat of angst against Catholic politicians is tempered with the fact good Catholic clergy and lay faithful are sharpening their spiritual knives to take up the fight for the Culture of Life.  Can you also tell I’m a tad bitter about missing out on this year’s Turkey feast?

Sword of Damo-cles #4 – Losing Never Looked So Good 1


Lolo Jones lost at the Olympics. Or, did she? Damian Goddard puts a fourth place finish by a 30-year old virgin hurdler under the spotlight. And what Damo finds, is the sordid underbelly of some of what’s wrong with our present-day culture.

SOD #3 – In Defense of NBC


Third installment of Sword of Damo-cles. With close to 20 years in the tv broadcast industry under his belt, Damian Goddard has seen his fair share of gripping stories on the screen. But it’s the same old story, the same old belly-aching surrounding NBC Sports coverage of the Olympic Games that has caused Damo to mic up and chip in with his two-cents worth. As NBC Sports proves so majestically each and every time they broadcast the Games, everybody’s got a story to tell.

SOD #2 – Gold Medal Daddy

Second installment of Sword of Damo-cles. Damian Goddard, who has spent some 20-years in the sports broadcast industry, pays close attention to the testimony Carl Lewis delivers to Oprah Winfrey. A testimony that trumpets the importance of fathership and marriage. Behind the glitz and glamour of being a 9-time Olympic gold medallist is the reality that fathers, mothers, and marriage matters.

SOD #1 – Fathers


Debut installment of Sword of Damo-cles. Damian Goddard speaks of the underlying reason that claimed the lives of two Toronto youth on July 16, 2012 – the disintegration of the family. And it is our culture, and specifically our politicians, who continue to perpetuate the lie that a mother and father is unimportant.
