Nobel Peace Prize winner Jimmy Carter working with niggardly gay pedophile priests who write anti-Jewish screeds for CAI to confiscate the guns of people who kneel to receive communion and who favor war with Iraq! Discuss! There! That should increase my readership! [Read more...]

Apropos several earlier discussions ranging from guns to Lefties getting sick to death of the Left… Here’s Rex Reed (of all people) detailing what a jerk Michael Moore is (scroll down). Favorite quote: “I’m an advocate for gun control, but I found myself disappointed that Mr. Heston didn’t pull out a loaded gun and say, [Read More...]

Fascinating to watch various Leading Lights of the Left bid the Left Farewell Meanwhile, the Treason Party continues to do and say anything to clutch at power. A week or so ago, Daschle was practically accusing Bush of trying to be Caesar (and Jim McDermott was saying this). This week, the Dems vote for war [Read More...]

Kairos diagnoses the 21 stages of Catholic blogging Only one inaccuracy: Lidless Eyes don’t have eyelid positions. They just stare with unblinking malice and hostility at everything the Church has done and said since Pius XII . [Read more...]

Speaking of laws not directly repugnant to the law of God The bishops have come out with some new rule saying people should stand to receive communion.

By the way, thanks to Justin Katz For pointing out that Richard Dawkins has begun to do what I predicted. He’s saying “What’s so bad about sex with minors?” I suspect that most of the sexual abuse priests are accused of is comparatively mild – a little bit of fondling perhaps, and a young child [Read More...]

Second Reformation? Nah. Boomer Americans are accustomed to think themselves the focal point of history. But I don’t think the Church’s current troubles are going to result in a Second Reformation. I do think they will issue in reform–eventually. To have something like the Reformation, you need to remember one thing: the big winner in [Read More...]

A lawyer friend writes: I’m thinking of working for CAI. (Especially if they’re going to start suing people and handing out those five-figure retainers I mentioned).

Meanwhile, another guy who wanted to be God finds the courts unsympathetic Just part of the judicial pattern of hostility to religion, no doubt. He changed his name to “I Am Who Am” instead. If he has kids will he name the first one “I Am Who Am, Jr.”? It’s thrilling to contemplate the domestic [Read More...]

On a happier note They might have found the Maryland shooter. When you think you are God, you tend to think you are invulnerable, and do stupid things like this guy. Not certain yet. After all, lots of people with large caches of weapons are probably shooting out their windows in Kensington, Maryland and firing [Read More...]
