Blessed are the Peacemakers

From Daryl Davis, peacemaker: * People make the mistake of forming anti-racist groups that are rendered ineffective from the start because ONLY invite those who share their beliefs to their meetings. * Provide a safe neutral meeting place. * Learn as much as you can about the ideology of a racist or perceived racist in your area. * Invite that person to meet with your group. * VERY IMPORTANT – LISTEN to that person. What is his/her primary concern? Place… Read more

For my sins…

I somehow wound up on a spam list from some Alt Right server.  Periodically I get mail from different sock puppets who blather about “cuckservatives” and chatter about menace of the darkskins and white supremacy and “Western Civilization”.  Today I got something titled “Question” (a lie: it should be called “Half-Assed Manifesto”).  It read: I am a college student, a conservative, and was born and raised Catholic.  However, I am now leaving the Catholic Church.  Here is why. Like most… Read more

Hey Portland, Vancouver and Camas!

I will be speaking about our Blessed Mother Mary at St. Thomas Aquinas parish in Camas, WA, tomorrow night, September 16 at 6:30 PM (after the evening Mass)! We will talk about Mary, her role in the life and devotion of the Church, the four Marian dogmas (Theotokos, Perpetual Virginity, Immaculate Conception, and Assumption) and they way in which she, the last gift God gave us before he left this life, shows us how to be better disciples.  I look forward to seeing you… Read more

Pick One

The Church declares that unconditional respect for the right to life of every innocent person-from conception to natural death is one of the pillars on which every civil society stands. – Pope St. John Paul II, Evangelium Vitae The ‘seamless garment’ is a poison pill that would kill the pro-life movement. – Lifesite News Read more

Trump backs down on wall, funds Planned Parenthood

And here’s the Planned Parenthood part of the deal.  Another huge win for the Prolife Trump Defender! What will be fascinating to watch is the bulk of his party outraged because he’s not building the wall or heaping cruelty on Dreamers and the small, perpetually used and discard prolife group astonished that Lucy has, yet again, pulled away the Planned Parenthood football. Me: I’m happy the dumb wall is off the table and innocent will hopefully not be deported.  I’m… Read more

I stand with Rebecca Bratten Weiss

In yet another display of shameful ugliness and falsity, Lifesite News pauses from endlessly smearing the Pope to smear a good woman, a good Catholic, a good scholar and a faithful defender of the Church’s teaching on the dignity of human life from conception to natural death.  Her only crime, insisting that a consistent life ethic is the Church’s actual teaching and that the disgusting use of the unborn as human shields to defend every right wing culture of death… Read more

Genuine, real, not kidding kudos to Trump

My sense is that he’s not really comfortable with rescinding DACA, but “because of his oaths and his guests” (Mt 14:9) he picked this awkward way to placate his base of white supremacists who love this sort of mindless cruelty and who, in particular, love watching him destroy anything Obama did, even if it makes perfect sense (like a proposed regulation to screen long distance drivers for sleep apnea so they don’t fall asleep at the wheel.  Obama proposed it, so… Read more
