“Go and learn what this means…”

Warren

“I desire mercy, and not sacrifice.” For I came not to call the righteous, but sinners. That’s Jesus, quoting Hosea. In my post on the suicide of Matthew Warren, I focused on the mercy of God, as is proper in the wake of a tragedy. There’s more that can be said about the mentally ill, [Read More...]

The Weird New Racism

Before we start, let’s listen to a song. It’s called “Accidental Racist” by Brad Paisley with LL Cool J: In case the video goes away (the official video was already yanked), here are the lyrics: To the man that waited on me at the Starbucks down on Main, I hope you understand When I put [Read More...]

Can The President Launch a Drone Strike on Columbia University?

VictimofKathyBoudin

Kathy Boudin, like President Obama’s friends Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn, is a terrorist. That’s not up for debate. Like Ayers and Dohrn, she plotted bomb attacks on Americans, and participated in the slaughter of three police officers during a robbery to fund her terrorist activities. She spent 20 years in an American jail because that’s [Read More...]

Pssst, Michelle: I Think Jesus Is Involved Somehow

Our Nanny-in-Chief has repurposed the most important day on the Christian calender, the celebration of the risen Christ, into some kind of nutritional Nuremberg Rally, calling the White House Easter Egg Roll (mmmm, eggroll) a “celebration of nutrition and health and activity.” Because everything has to be jammed through your little agenda, Shelly. Here’s the whole thing. (Bonus!: See if you can spot the missing word in [Read More...]

Do You Remember Bobby Sands? [Catholics Blogging to Close Gitmo]

Gitmo

Susan Windley-Daoust (The Ironic Catholic) and Sherry Antonetti (Chocolate for Your Brain!) are launching one of those perennial Doomed Quixotic Efforts that makes Catholicism the Greatest Thing in the World.  See, we’re a little weird, and America has always rightly understood this and been suspicious of us. Our beliefs cut right across party lines. We value truth [Read More...]

Data Mining by … The President?

I almost let this story pass without comment, figuring in my infinite pettiness that, if you’re the kind of person who would download an app celebrating the reelection of a tyrant, you deserve to be spammed until you can’t tell a real email from a Nigerian erectile dysfunction cure. (I said was a Christian. I didn’t say I was [Read More...]

Who Knew Our President Was Such a Great Comedian?

Barack Obama

This arrived from the White House Press Office today. I thought, “Oh, those crazy guys at Eye of the Tiber must have hacked the WH servers and sent this out as a gag.” But, no, the man who’s grinding his jackboot into our religious liberty actually issued this statement today. As the kids today say, [Read More...]

“Be content to trust in the Lord”

SAMSUNG DIGITAL CAMERA

No profound thoughts or gnashing of teeth this morning. There’s simply relief that this is all over at last, and that we can get back to living and worshiping as we shiver in the shadow of tyrants. Our faith was forged in the shadow of tyrants: a shadow that fell upon the ground in the shape of [Read More...]
