On 9/11–the actual 9/11, Trump bragged that his building was now the tallest in New York

There’s audio to prove it. This man is a dangerous narcissistic sociopath whose entire life has been spent cocooned from the consequences of his actions by money. And he has not changed one iota despite his transparent lies about “conversion”, etc. How little self-respect can a person have to look to a man who would [Read More…]

John Donne, for 9/11

Death, be not proud, though some have called thee Mighty and dreadful, for thou art not so; For those whom thou think’st thou dost overthrow Die not, poor Death, nor yet canst thou kill me.

Follow up on the development of doctrine

The prudential judgments of councils (“This is how we are going to do things–for now.”) represent snapshots of the Church’s evolving thought.

Had an interesting conversation about the development of doctrine on FB

It started with Rebeccan Bratten Weiss remarking that she was happy about the Church changing its teaching on the approach to Jews which, you know, it did.  That’s why we no longer pray for the “perfidious Jews” in the Good Friday liturgy and why, you know, we don’t try to defending putting Jews in ghettoes.

Beware Political Epiphanies

Here’s a bulletin from Trump’s Amerikkka: Beware political epiphanies: Once, as I was strolling through the Inner City, I suddenly encountered an apparition in a black caftan and black hair locks. Is this a Jew? was my first thought. For, to be sure, they had not looked like that in Linz. I observed the man [Read More…]

I love the passive aggression of Life Site News

Here’s the headline, pretending to “just ask questions”: Is the $91 million Obama refugee grant to the USCCB tied to bishops’ silence on Hillary? And here’s the URL, making the naked accusation: https://www.lifesitenews.com/news/follow-the-usccb-money-trail-to-understand-bishops-silence-on-hillary This is what happens when you forget to change the URL after you’ve edited the headline to avoid libel charges. By the way, [Read More…]

Arguments that prove too much

From the comboxes of Crisis: At last! Much thanks should go to Mssrs Feser and Bessette for a cogent defense of the oldest teaching in the Catholic tradition on the powers of the state. It bears commenting further on Luke23:41 that one of the first saints to enter heaven—indeed, within moments after the crucifixion— was [Read More…]
