Fascinating thread over at Amy’s What interests me about it is how truly the stories being told there resonate with my own experience. People whose minds perpetually swim in the shallow waters of the political are frequently baffled by what keeps Catholics Catholic. As though the thing that keeps people in the Church is the [Read More...]

They can call it “Skynet”! “Linge said he was well aware of the potential implication for civil liberties of the intrusive potential of the new technology, but at present he was focusing only on the technical aspects.” Funny. Reminds me of the career of this man. Gather round while I sing you of Wernher von [Read More...]

Rod Dreher on the Air! Rod writes: I’m scheduled to be on Fox News Channel at 1:30 Eastern today, on Linda Vester’s show, debating the presence of a cross at Ground Zero with the head of American Atheists.

From our “Protocols of the Learned Elders of Rome” file Somebody sank *millions* into creating this piece of shit. But there’s no anti-Catholicism in America or anything. Tim Cavanaugh said so. My recommendation: Hollywood vs. America by Michael Medved. Among the lies under consideration in his book is that lie that “We just give the [Read More...]

The Amazing Fr. Bryce Sibley finds the coolest stuff! Some will undoubtedly be thrilled by this Clergy on the Catwalk link. For my money though, the big find is the wonderful (and apparently quite earnest) exegesis of Don McLean’s “American Pie” as Holy Ghost-inspired prophecy of America in the End Times. Delightful! Fr. Sibley, I [Read More...]

Deal Hudson on The Meeting Dear Friend, Well, things have finally settled down around here after the excitement of yesterday’s meeting with the bishops.

Sullivan: Dishonest or Fool? Sullivan screams that the bishops are irresponsible. Conservatives ask bishops to take responsibility. Result: Sullivan gets upset. Why? Because if the bishops *really* took responsibility, they would begin to do something about abusive gay priests and to stand up for the Church’s teaching on homosexuality. That threatens l’il willie. So Sullivan [Read More...]

Common Sense from Wendy McElroy And, at the far opposite end of the common sense scale, there’s this loony scheme for color coding air travelers. How about we start by just exempting all the blue-haired old Lutheran ladies from Minnesota right now. We could then ease on to exempting six-year old Presbyterian girls from Kansas. [Read More...]
