The Lidless Eye of the Reactionary is Watching Scott Hahn too! Gotta love it when EWTN is too far out for the Truly Catholic[TM] Pharisees. For the record, some of the sweetest, most-docile-to-the-Holy-Spirit-and-teaching-of-the-Church Catholics I have ever known are Charismatics. I’d take their company over the Grand Inquisitor who wrote and published the piece linked [Read More...]

A Very Good and Thoughtful Letter A reader tells me she read “an article that I like very much written by a Palestinian Christian who is engaged in peace efforts with Israelis and his perspective on the politics of victimhood, which I have seen as operative both in the current scandal, in the mideast and [Read More...]

Update on Brian Halderman Seems our Man of Integrity suddenly got rid of the drag nuns and faux priests photos today. Trust me. They were there. Poor persecuted man.
