By the way, one advantage of this blog… is that I am so sports-disinterested and illiterate that you’ve been able to go for days without ever reading the words “Say it ain’t Sosa” here. Not many blogs can make that claim. One more reason to stay tuned. [Read more...]

Some Pro-War Folks Appear to be Moving from “We’ll find ‘em! Just you wait, you antiwar idiots!” to… “[T]here could have been misstatements made, I think in good faith.” Does this mean they are giving up on ever finding WMDs? Isn’t that a bit premature?

Why is it that any attempt to point out that our culture is a huge factor in the Situation is always met with defensive stuff like “This doesn’t let the hierarchy off the hook, you know! Why do you keep blaming the laity? It’s the Pope who made these appointments! It’s the bishops [Read More...]

Greg Popcak Obligingly Points out Two Things I’ve Been Saying First, Bill O’Reilly is a bullying semi-Catholic gasbag. Second, O’Reilly, supposedly a conservative Catholic, nicely illustrates my point: which is that Catholics from his vaunted “90%” don’t *want* faithful bishops.

There are two basic responses to this sort of thing One response is to gripe and moan and complain. And to be sure, there’s much to complain about. The wretched catechesis is inexcusable and another fine fruit of the brilliant pastoral care of Bp. O’Brien. But if you just sit there moaning and complaining while [Read More...]

Two Editorials One from the Dallas Morning News and one from the Grey Lady on Bp. O’Brien’s unbelievably irresponsible butt-saving machinations. I’m personally hoping the DA just says “The hell with this stupid attempt to monkey with running the Church. Here, take it back, Phoenix Catholics.
