A Washington Thanksgiving I wrote it a few years ago, but I’m still grateful. Now I’m grateful as well for my wife and children. The universe is full of grace, if you look. [Read more...]


The sensible Eve Tushnet on the Wrong-Headed Demand that Homosexuals Become Heterosexual Instead of Chaste [Read more...]


Despicable yes But the full-throttle hagiographic “Martyrdom of St. Eddie” tone of this story only goes to highlight the incredible media void Rod describes when it comes to brutal crimes against Christian lebensunwertensleben such as the insignificant and disposable Mary Stachowicz. ABC, to put it bluntly, does not give a shit that she’s dead. She [Read More...]


A reader sez: I share your sentiments re: Law and the visit to the mosque. Also have encountered more than a few African and “other than North American” Western Hemisphere priests to realize that the Church is bigger than the ‘issues’ of those of us of Western European extraction.

Rod Dreher Hits One Out of the Ballpark! Anything I say is gilding the lily. By the way, to his credit, Jody noted this story on his blog when it happened and didn’t make the disgusting whiny excuses Wagner did. He even (mildly) condemned Gutierrez’ act. On the other hand, he does make pathetic excuses [Read More...]

St. Blog’s Stars on Catholic Exchange Today! [Read more...]


What! Everywhere isn’t here? This will come as a shock both to watery liberals who can’t stand a forthright orthodox Christian faith and to Lidless Eyes who strain at gnats (eek! the Pope received a traditional Indian greeting!) while overlooking the camel of a great deal of gung ho orthodoxy because it isn’t dressed in [Read More...]


Disputations Makes a Good Point… that I mostly agree with and partly disagree with. Speaking as a Catholic, I agree completely (and have stated elsewhere) that insofar as a bishop is delivering the Tradition or acting in his office as teacher, his “moral authority” is utterly irrelevant to whether we should listen to him. Even [Read More...]


Harry Potter as a closet Catholic A reader writes: I was driving around today listening to the John Williams soundtrack for Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets (excellent stuff, BTW) and realized something pretty…well, strange. Potter authoress Jo Rowling has always been a bit cagey when it comes to discussing religion or her own [Read More...]
