Six Year Old Paraplegic Boy’s Caregiver to be Deported

He is engaged to marry his mother. But because of precious, precious paperwork, will be torn away from this woman and the child who needs him desperately. Christianists savor the cruelty of destroying this boy’s fragile support system.  They love it.  Love it.  They love the chance to call his mother a slut who has it coming.  They love the opportunity to say “The kid’s mother should be his caregiver” while also calling her a lazy parasite who should get… Read more

Pete Vere writes a follow up regarding Amoris Laetitia stuff

Quoth he: Up until now I had avoided commenting directly on Pope Francis’s Amoris Laetitia (AL). As a former tribunal canonist whose experience is mainly within the Canadian and American context, I was much more interested in Pope Francis’s 2015 reforms simplifying marriage tribunal procedure. These reforms have had much greater effect on any day-to-day ministry in a developed world context than AL’s controversial footnote, in my opinion. In assisting priest friends with tribunal-related ministry in their parishes (particularly during… Read more

Amoris Laetitia Stuff

Since people have asked, here are my complete thoughts on Amoris Laetitia. I don’t care about it. At all.   Okay.  That’s probably not enough to satisfy so permit me to elaborate a little. Personally, I care not a whit.  Nothing in it concerns me since I’m in a happy, stable marriage that is in no need of the pastoral care this manual (aimed at shepherds) is trying to instruct. Nor am I a shepherd, canonist, counselor, or marriage healing… Read more

President Queeg is a Stable Genius

Now that Russian collusion, after one year of intense study, has proven to be a total hoax on the American public, the Democrats and their lapdogs, the Fake News Mainstream Media, are taking out the old Ronald Reagan playbook and screaming mental stability and intelligence….. — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 6, 2018 ….Actually, throughout my life, my two greatest assets have been mental stability and being, like, really smart. Crooked Hillary Clinton also played these cards very hard and,… Read more

From Russell Kirk to Milo Yiannopolous…

The spectacle of the decay of American Conservative Catholicism from this: to Milo Yiannopolous will be the subject of some future history. Here are just the editorial comments on his ridiculous book Dangerous, made by some poor sod whose job was to try to make this glob of junk into a book. It’s hilarious: I didn’t read the manuscript. Just the comments. They’re…amazing. Even better than the excerpts in the filing. And a pretty good summary of the book I… Read more

And there are copious tape recordings to back it all up

Michael Wolff, in addition to chronicling the massive dysfunction of the freak show in the White House, offers this small vignette of the man Church Militant and countless Christianists seriously believe is God’s Anointed: So much family values/prolife winning in this tidily documented book.  But, of course, the thoroughly Trumpified old prolife movement knows what kind of man he is.  They adored him when he took vengeance on his infant nephew with cerebral palsy, when he called his years of… Read more
