Gasp! It’s all true! They’re here! They’re here! And they want to make us all Pod People! I must admit the logo is utterly creepy. It would be a great logo for the Societas Oculus Sauron though. Only the motto needs changing to “Strength Through Condemnation”. I also note that it’s not the US that [Read More...]

I hate being right all the time But my point last week that CCC 2316 may well be interpreted to refer to Caesar’s “right and duty” to regulate small arms is given rather a boost by today’s news. Like it or not, the non-traditional nature of the War on Terror is going to impact how [Read More...]

What I mean by CAI’s “Pope Bashing” Some of my commenters have asked why I regard CAI as indulging in Pope-bashing. Aren’t they just being legitimately critical of what they regard as bad judgement calls? No. They are indulging in Pope-bashing. Here’s an example of an extraordinary cheap shot that combines both theological ignorance and [Read More...]

My Village Atheist Stands up for the Nobility and Dignity of the Human Person Another articulate defender of the gay subculture gives ordinary people the willies and then complains that it’s all due to homophobia and not to the fact that he is defending, well… you read it.

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, [Read More...]

New Oxford Review loses another customer When a magazine charges Scott Hahn (!) with being a closet apologist for lesbianism(!!) you know they’ve Gone Round the Bend. No word yet on when they join forces with CAI to smoke out the Jewish anti-geocentrism conspiracy. A pity really. It appears the moments of crisis in the [Read More...]

However, because I am an incredibly magnanimous good sport… Here’s the link to SETI. Among other things you can download SETI@home software that makes your PC part of the gigantic analytic Borg that is scanning the static from the stars and looking for evidence of a signal from ET. Massive computing power has been expended [Read More...]

More on ET Answers to comments below: Leslie: It’s true that many modern philosophies predicate humanness on the ability to reason. St. Thomas predicates it on the possession of a rational soul, which is different. Zach: Agreed. Any stick will do to beat the Church. Joel: I’ll be willing to change my opinion when we [Read More...]
