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...]

Secret Agent Man… …one of the great undiscovered essayists of our times. Anybody who can begin a paragraph, “One day not long ago I was letting the lice-ridden drunk who lives in my family room entertain me” has my vote as a prose stylist of genius. [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...]

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...]
