Get Your Ducks in a Row

So the sad part of the story is that my ducks from last year mysteriously disappeared during hunting season after we heard a bunch of shots down by the pond in the morning. Ahem. So this year we’ve decided to go with a new variety that don’t look anything like mallards. Also, we’re going to [Read More…]

Michael Voris, Austin Ruse and The Problem of Detraction

Yesterday, Michael Voris published a mostly very moving post in which he reveals that his past sins are homosexual. Voris and I had something of a tiff several years back over my review of his Homosexuality FBI documentary, so I’ve had several people ask me what I think about this surprising revelation.

Cock-blocking for Jesus: A Modest Proposal for Christian Men Who are Concerned About Trans Bathroom Rights

Amid all of the talk about laws preventing trans people from using washrooms and change-rooms according to their gender identity (rather than their genitalia) there’s a significant elephant in the room.

Amoris Laetitia Needs to Give Sinners More Stick, Less Carrot, Yeah?

There is an oversimplification of the story of the rich young man that I often encounter in Catholic circles: basically, the rich young man asks what is necessary for eternal life and Christ says “If you want to merit eternal life, you have to give up everything and follow me.” The young man is unwilling to give up his riches, so he goes away sad.

You’re Not Pro-Life if You’re Not Pro-Child

Today, the back-payment came for my Canada Child Tax Benefit for Malachi, and out of gratitude towards my polis I thought that I might write about how supports for low-income families can work in ways that are not humiliating or degrading. Letitia Adams wrote an excellent post the other day, talking about how difficult it has [Read More…]

Memento Mori: Zombies in the Collective Unconscious

So I’ve been binge-watching The Walking Dead recently, and naturally my mind has turned to the question of what’s up with our society that zombies have become a major cultural obsession. What is it, exactly, that we’re working out in our collective psyche? Simcha Fisher attempted to answer this a while back. Her answer was [Read More…]
