In Florida, If You Want to Kill People, It Should be Handled by Qualified Medical Professionals… The peculiar mark of our culture is that it cares more about aesthetics and tastefulness than it does about human life. The city fathers in Terri Schiavo’s town have been remarkably slow to pass similar anti-euthanasia measures, merely because [Read More...]

Hey! Why Kill Only the Ill? Oh, but euthanasia will *never* lead to a debased society or anything. Nope. The West is simply superior to the Islamosphere. When *we* kill innocent people, it’s not for some barbaric notion of honor, ginned up by furious passions and primitive religion. Nosirree, when we kill innocent people, we [Read More...]

I sometimes think that Radical Traditionalism…. …can be defined as the hope that as few people as possible find everlasting life. The weird pretzel-like logic of this HMS blog reader, for instance, veers clean into Marcionism in the peculiar attempt to deny the rather obvious teaching of the Church (a teaching dating back to the [Read More...]

Fr. Rob Johansen on Hell Of course, I shouldn’t be blogging this since I was informed by my resident hysteric (now, sadly, banished to the Outer Darkness where their worm does not die and their fire is not quenched) that I believe in automatic heaven for everybody whether they repent or not.

Rod Dreher writes: I just put a blog up on the DMN site bitching about NPR’s reporting of the naming of the new cardinals, and praising John Allen for setting Bob Edwards straight this morning.

New film out based on John I’m rather skeptical of these things as drama. The idea of simply treating the gospels like a movie script strikes me as tone deaf both to the sort of literature the gospels are and the sort of art cinema is. I never much cared for the “Jesus Movie” they [Read More...]

A reader writes: I watched the first episode of “Joan of Arcadia” Friday night. With one exception it wasn’t too bad. The premise, that God appears to a teen-aged girl in various guises and talks to her, is strange, but given that God spoke to Moses through a burning bush and He speaks to all [Read More...]
