…according to Baby Boomers. I was born at the tail end of the Boom in 1958.  All the time I was growing up, I heard Boomers announcing that they were the Voices of a New Generation and that you should not trust anybody over 30.  Our parents, who had done nothing except overcome the Depression, defeat Hitler, defy Stalin and Mao, and provide for us the strongest economy in the history of the planet were the worst.  The worst.  They… Read more

Seeing as how it is Martin Luther King, Jr.’s Day, this seems like a good time for a quick refresher on the distinction between Christian and Christianist. King got a lot of flack from the Christianists of his day.  Sent to jail for upholding Christian teaching in a land teeming with Good White Christianists, he too found it necessary to make clear the distinction between the two subcultures in his Letter from a Birmingham Jail.  It spelled out the difference… Read more

…to being a fully active and participating Catholic: Therefore I see no reason to accommodate the Faith to liberalism—to mute the Church’s claims to universal authority, to downplay the most inconvenient aspects of Her social teaching, to form compromising alliances for the sake of power in the present order. Even if this could all be accomplished shrewdly through emphases and implications without sacrificing an iota of the substance of the Faith, it would still be doubtlessly an accommodation that contains… Read more
