Why Contraception is a Bad Idea #2 — Scripture Prohibits It

The use of artificial contraception is clearly prohibited in Scripture. Of course, if you view Scripture in the same manner I view Richard Dawkins' The God Delusion -- with a deep sense of skepticism and a distaste for prosaic, old men on ego-trips -- then perhaps the fact that contraception violates the natural law is an argument better suited to your tastes. If, however, you are of the radical belief that Sacred Scripture is sacred, do read on:I begin with a rather obvious point, that if o … [Read more...]

Why Contraception Is a Bad Idea #1 — Natural Law

After the drama of our last post, I believe I owe all of you studly individuals an explanation. Of course, in the particular situation of the HHS Mandate, I don't think it matters one whit whether you agree with the Church's teaching on contraception: It is an affront to all religious liberty, and should be opposed as such. But the 800 lbs. Papal Bull in the room remains: Well, why is the Church opposed to contraception? I will attempt to answer that question. There may be some pictures. Do not … [Read more...]

An Open Letter to President Barack Obama Concerning Recent Tyranny (With Pictures!)

The Obama administration has just told the Catholics of the United States, “To Hell with you!" -- Bishop David Zubik of the Diocese of Pittsburgh.Dear Mr. President, I am fully aware that these are days in which the federal government is -- for all practical purposes -- unlimited in its power. As it stands, you -- sir -- can detain any American citizen without due process simply because you suspect him of being a terrorist, you have magically managed to become the Chairman of the UN Se … [Read more...]

So, remember that time I invited David Crowder to become Catholic?

Yeah, that might have been redundant.I'm happy as can be, and praying for Mr. Crowder, hoping he comes into full communion soon, though it seems his heart is already there. … [Read more...]

How To Love Your Neighbor

Our culture is drunk with a compassion for humanity. This would be fine and dandy but for the fact that we haven't a drop left for actual human beings. We simultaneously want cooperations that behave generously, philanthropically and kindly to the poor, and anti-begging laws to keep the poor away from us. We somewhat vaguely want to make the lives of women to be easier, and we are willing to kill the unborn human for it. We believe that all of humanity deserves free medical treatment, which is … [Read more...]

Media Stupidity at The March For Life

Dear New York Times,What the hell is wrong with you? Did any one of your number -- at any point in your lives -- manage to pass a Journalism class? Did you ever even take a Journalism class? Ah, but perhaps you are unfamiliar with this strange and monstrous term, this newfangled 'journalism'. Allow me to simplify: Was there ever in your professional existence a single moment when an authority figure sat you down and said, "Alright, thousands of young people protesting: That's what we call … [Read more...]

Why Twilight Sucks

I'm annoyed with moral relativism. This emotion wells up within me not simply because relativism is a ridiculously boring worldview, designed for the sole purpose of justifying petty immorality without the balls to justify heavy immorality. No, I am annoyed because it lied to us. Its advocates said -- with remarkably straight faces -- that if we would only realize that our quaint conceptions of good and evil were personal and not universal, and if right and wrong could be treated as a matter of … [Read more...]
