A GOOD POINT from Ramesh Ponnuru. (Scroll down to "WHICH GAY PRIESTS?"--for some reason I can't make the links work.) When orthodox Catholics like Rod Dreher use "gay" as a shorthand for "disagrees with Church teaching on homosexual acts," they unintentionally accept and promote the Andrew Sullivan model of the world that I growl at just two posts down. So go Ramesh.[Edited to reflect that Dreher answered him, and agrees with him, but I can't make that link work either. Lame.] … [Read more...]

DEAR ETHICIST: Here's my dilemma: There's this columnist. Every Sunday, he answers people's ethical questions. I don't know why--I don't know who appointed him Ethicus Maximus. His responses are often self-righteous, his morality is utilitarian-socialist, and his humor is strained. Yet I can't stop reading him!!!

IN GLORIOUS BLACK AND WHITE: So much movie madness... First, here's Orrin Judd's list, with links to various reviews. Then Murtaugh returns to the field (calling me "obsessive," she noted obsessively), and notes that there's not much overlap in any of these lists. That raises the interesting question of what the heck it means to call a movie "conservative." Judd came up with a working definition: "Loosely defined, conservative films would be those which vindicate traditional morality and values, … [Read more...]
