Sure it’s way funny. But imagine how much funnier your attempts to say something in Japanese would be. Reminds me of one of Mark Twain’s favorite books: English As She is Spoke, a phrasebook written by the enterprising Portuguese Pedro Carolino in 1883. Carolino did not know English but, nothing daunted, he used an English/French phrasebook and a French/Portuguese phrasebook to produce a classic in… some as yet to be determined language. Read more

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 above any day of the week. 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 in my own life which I am convinced is directly contrary to the commands of Christ and which does not lead to healing and restoration… 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. What is interesting about his action is that this sort of cowardice and deception is not called “cowardice and deception” by the gay community. It’s called “being driven back into the closet”. But of course, this is untrue. I don’t want Mr. Halderman’s photos off line. I want them where we… Read more

Memo to Amy re: Seattle Catholic.com I don’t know the facts about Abp. Brunett. But I do know a little about Seattle Catholic.com, the people who wrote you attacking Brunett. They appear to be an embittered nucleus of reactionary malcontents who made the mistake of passing along to me a completely false rumor about a priest I know extremely well (evidently they thought I live elsewhere and figured they could do so with impunity). When I challenged them on it,… Read more
