Six Day Creationism and Gay Parenting If some six day creationist were to stage a protest against evolution and say, “We believe in the Bible and feel it’s a little sad that nature doesn’t support our six day creation hermaneutic. We demand changes in Nature to conform it to our reading of Scripture” they’d be [Read More...]

I would like to borrow a cup of miles I have a US Airways dividend miles account which is 6000 miles short of what I need to get the last ticket for a family vacation this summer to Colorado. I have heaps and gobs of miles which will be credited to my account soon…. but [Read More...]

Will those who protested JPII’s “moral idiocy” in opposing war in Iraq… …be protesting W’s moral idiocy in not launching a few well-placed cruise missiles in response to this plea? After all, if the *real* purpose of the war was to destroy tyranny, why should we not destroy other destroyable tyrannies? And if we refuse, [Read More...]

My Visual Media Recommendations Just updated ‘em. Check ‘em out. Buy a bunch of them! I get a few cents on the purchase, which will enable me to get The Two Towers DVD when it comes out. [Read more...]

He Must Have *Really* Loved Juanita Broadderick What an amazingly incestuous bunch of slimeballs. And Morris doesn’t impress me for going back to work for the Big He. I hope his new Catholic faith is making a dent and not just affirming him in his okayness. There’s something demonic about the Clintons hold over people. [Read More...]

Bp. Kelly of Louisville: The People’s Choice Some background on good Bp. Kelly is here. Resisting the impulse to dub him the “Louisville Sluggard” for his spectacularly negligent and costly oversight of his diocese, I wish to enlist none other than Rod Dreher, with whom I have had a long and friendly disagreement, concerning the [Read More...]

Science! Researchers have identified a pattern in the molestation crisis afflicting the Roman Catholic Church: most of the victims are older boys. In other news, scientists have noticed a definite alternating light/dark pattern in the rhythm of day and night. Noting this trend [!], some high-ranking Catholics have concluded that many abusive clergy are gay, [Read More...]

Sure hope this doesn’t suck The guy playing “Luther” looks awfully dewy and ‘N Syncish. He should be beefier, like Kenneth Branagh. I hope it’s a human portrayal, neither hagiography nor demonization. A fascinating, tragic, courageous, hateful, brilliant, deeply disturbed, intensely pious, tender, sentimental, sensitive, brutal, and (near the end of his life) quasi-deranged man. [Read More...]

Horrid Red Things, Vitamin Theories, and Intelligent Design A reader gripes: [N]on-disprovable philosophies … such as “Intelligent design” only serve to make Christians look ignorant. I assure you that if the Catholic Church maintained such nonsense as articles of faith, no scientist with personal integrity could be Catholic. It would appear to me that the [Read More...]
