I Don't Want to be a Hoo-er
Essays on Faith, Family and Foolishness
by Elizabeth Scalia
Essayist Elizabeth Scalia writes of scripture: "You either believe all that stuff you say you believe, and you act accordingly, or it's all a lot of hooey and you're the hoo-er." Scalia declines to be a hoo-er, but in this compilation of columns culled from various publications carrying her by-line, she gives ample evidence of her sometimes humorous, often harrowing failings and her determination to move forward.
Round by round, "I Don't Want to be a Hoo-er" makes for amusing, often maddening, ever-surprising reading that will jumpstart the synapses and leave few unmoved.
"Double standards have always set my teeth on edge. But perhaps my teeth have been grinding for a long time, too."
Award-winning author and Benedictine Oblate Elizabeth Scalia writes about hooer-dom, current events, and the Catholic faith on her Patheos blog.
"It was a chilly morning, and entering the church through a side door, as I had a million times before, I beheld everything with eyes that saw everything as new."
