Somebody Asked Me if I Thought Trump Voters were in Mortal Sin

Of course not.  Mortal sin requires grave matter, sufficient understanding and interior freedom.So with three year old who shoots his sister to death there is grave matter (a little girl is dead) but no understanding and therefore no sin, not even a venial one.  A killing, but not a murder was done.Likewise, when Sophie is forced by the Nazi to choose which of her children should be murdered or watch them  both die, she is in no way guilty of being an accessory to murder since she has no … [Read More...]

Becoming Friends with Mary Magdalene

Went to Mass this morning and had a little epiphany.  I have, with rare exceptions, accepted the Communion of Saints as a doctrine of the faith, not as a "felt reality".  I pray to the saints because the Church recommends it, not because I live a life of emotive mystical communion with them, sensing … [Read More...]

The Struggle for Religious Liberty took its latest punishing blow the Party of God--fresh from freaking out all week long about our desperately imperiled religious liberty--hysterically booed off the stage a man who urged people to obey their conscience. All on behalf of a guy who wants to punish and persecute people solely on the basis of their religion. … [Read More...]

The words “Hillary wins” on Election Day…

will carry for me all the excitement and joy of "We only had to amputate below the knee to get all the gangrene."Once Trump is dispatched as the gravest internal threat our country has ever faced, the real work will begin of salvaging what is left of the credibility of the prolife movement with … [Read More...]

The Case for Hillary is Simple

She's not Trump.  That's it.  That's all.  I support Hillary with the white hot passion of a thousand shrugs.  Which is to say I'd vote for her if I had to (if I lived in a swing state), but will vote a third party protest both against the both of them since I live in ultra-violet blue Washington and … [Read More...]
