Strange bedfellows

CAI has been keeping odd company: Nazis, geocentric and Jew-bashing quacks of various shapes and sizes. But now they are modeling themselves after a new and unexpected hero: Cardinal Mahony!

Absorbing the valuable lesson of the Cardinal that it is more important to look good than to be good, they’ve updated their site, but left the same old Jew-bashing, Pope-bashing, geocentric, “we’re-smarter-than-Einstein” stuff on it–with a brand new addition. Jake Michaels, fresh from explaining to me that Holocaust denial is A-OK, now warns the Pope about the dangers of promulgating new mysteries of the Rosary without first consulting him. Disputations sufficiently answers this sort of thing.

Jake: it’s a private devotion. There’s a lot of ways to say a Rosary. If the Pope (whose authority includes “binding and loosing”, you may recall) offers another one, just relax. If you don’t want to say it, you don’t have to. But Holy Church is within her rights to offer us what devotional aids she believes will be useful.
