A Brief Rant on the Looming American Health Care Disaster

Salty language ahead. I decided to blog angry, which I rarely do. Sometimes anger is clarifying. Writers, artists, musicians, etc are set to lose their health care under Obamacare changes. Sweet sweet poetic justice. As I get put through the wringer over changes this asshole and his asshole supporters forced on us (we just lost [Read More...]

Government Grabs Church Land for Road Project

Not far from where I live, the Diocese of Camden (New Jersey) just lost 6 acres from one of their cemeteries in a government land grab under eminent domain, and for far less than the asking price or the assessment: New Jersey invoked eminent domain to grab the land for a highway project, and offered the [Read More...]

Planned Parenthood is the Right Hand of Satan

“Dear mommy, please vote yourself the right to kill me.” Perhaps the sickest ad of a sick election season, in which the “products of conception” (to use the “choice” movement’s terminology) beg mommy for the right to get rid of any potential little brothers or sisters. Nothing like having cute little moppets who managed to [Read More...]

Archbishop Chaput on Hard Choices, Money, Sexual Abuse, Politics, and More

John Allen does a long and interesting interview with Archbishop Chaput. Absolutely first-rate stuff from both subject and writer.

This Guy for President: 2016

Amber the Quisling Chikin Says…

EatMoreChikina

Every day is chicken day around here, but today people are making an effort to eat at Chick-fil-A in order to offset the boycott directed at the chain because its owner opposes gay marriage. As I pointed out here, I don’t really object to people exercising their right not to spend money somewhere for some [Read More...]

Transcript: Remarks by Hillary Clinton on the 2011 International Religious Freedom Report

Here’s another giant wad of transcription about the 2011 report on religious freedom, this time featuring Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s comments on the report. She acknowledges the ongoing persecution against Christians, and notes the dangers in the current political upheavals rocking the Middle East, but it doesn’t seem like a particularly strong message of [Read More...]

Transcript: Press Conference for the 2011 International Religious Freedom Report

This just arrived on the White House press list, and I’m in the middle of a large piece of writing, so I’m going to put it out there in toto as an “FYI.” It’s the press briefing from Ambassador-at-Large for International Religious Freedom Suzan Johnson Cook on the release of the 2011 International Religious Freedom Report.
