The Angry St. Thomas Aquinas Metal Balloon Animal Sculpture

Thomas Aquinas: Terminator

During our travels, we attended mass at St. Thomas Aquinas Church at the University of Virginia (Charlottesville). This hulking monstrosity squats outside like an angry sentinel daring people to be Catholic. My son dubbed it “St. Thomas Aquinas Prime” and wondered if it was made of transformium. The parish is actually quite lovely and thriving, [Read More...]

Internet, Meet Ivy

IVY

Ivy, meet the Internet. They love cute puppies more than porn and selfies combined. I’ve been wrapping the summer up with a vacation: boating, Mount Vernon, Spy Museum, Shakespeare, and other to-ings and fro-ings. Overall, a rousing success, ending with a new addition to the family. Because I don’t want to let the internets down [Read More...]

Begin the Novena For Religious Freedom Today

I will be joining millions of others in fasting today and praying for Christians who are being persecuted for their faith. The scope of the bloodshed and horror unfurling right now in the Middle East is almost unimaginable, and it is sweeping Sunni as well as Christian into its voracious maw. It is a holocaust [Read More...]

Our Funny Little Satanist Friends Made a Statue!

From The Devil Rides Out (Hammer Films, 1968)

Aw, innit cute!? Didn’t I see this in Hammer’s The Devil Rides Out? Rad. Good movie. I think I’ll base my entire life, being, and belief system upon it. The overgrown teenagers of the Satanic Temple in New York have raised $30,000 to bronze this turd and plop it in front of the Oklahoma State [Read More...]

Kareem Abdul-Jabbar on Moral Outrage

I am the least sporty person you’ll ever meet. I’ve never watched an entire football, hockey, soccer, or major league baseball game, ever. I took the kids to minor league games for the Camden Riversharks a couple times, and it was fun … ish. (I have, however, attended 5 professional golf tournaments and used to [Read More...]

Happy Earth Day! Or Not.

Happy Earth Day! Here’s a picture of Holly Maddux, murdered and stuffed in a trunk by one of the founders of Earth Day: Keep a few extra lights burning in memory of her. Fun fact: the date of Earth Day (April 22nd) was chosen to coincide with birthday of another psychopath: Vladimir Lenin. But let’s not [Read More...]
