Ripples From The Rock

Untitled

If I had but one sermon to preach it would be this: The ripples are not the rock, the rock is not the ripple, and it is the confusion of the two that damages the Church.A current trend amongst Catholic leaders, priests and ministers is to look at the Holy Mass and ask, "How can we get the world to come? Ah, well, we could bring the most beautiful art into our churches, we could bring the music people like into the Mass, we could orientate it towards families, we could have a later Mass … [Read more...]

Serial Killers Are Boring

Our world is in the pitifully awkward position of informing us that our gravest sins are not sinful at all, while damning the most modest and the most innocent of our vices. Thus we have it that abortion and euthanasia are in and with-it, masturbation is healthy, pornography is good for your marriage, sodomy is an old-fashioned, oppressive term...and it is illegal to smoke in a bar. (I mean, my dear man! We do have standards, you know.)  The daring and exciting - Kinky Sex OMG! - is toted as norm … [Read more...]

Y’all Suck At Sinning

It was the common belief 40 years ago, and still for some living today, that the beautiful liberation the modern world now experiences - in its freedom from sexual taboos, freedom of 'choice', redefinition of love and marriage, denial of basic moral principles, etc. - was all very bold, very brave, very rad, man.

One doesn't have to r … [Read more...]

There is nothing, for instance, particularly undemocratic about kicking your butler downstairs. It may be wrong, but it is not unfraternal. - G.K ChestertonThere are two ways of being by yourself. One is to be alone - a fantastic and human desire - and the other is to be lonely.

Dear Protestants #2 – Why We Should Fight

It doesn't help that it's incoherent, either. Really? The long withstanding hatred between peace and women needs to be resolved? And "The Bab" are major players all the sudden?In this pristine and relativistic world, the hardest part of any decent fight is starting a decent fight. Specifically in terms of religion, we are taught that argument shouldn't happen at all, that it's bad taste to believe you are right. Haven't you seen those cute little bumper stickers demanding that we … [Read more...]
