A reader asks: Can you point to some way an ordinary catholic can or should forgive someone’s sins against a third party?

The pleasure of being a Christian Vigilante You get to know the very mind of God and the state of a man’s soul, to lick one’s lips in trembling delight over the suffering of those we hate, and to rejoice over the (assumed) damnation of a human being: “He’s dead, and in hell. The 150 [Read More...]

Whatever The bishops have the liturgical fidgets. We’ve already implemented some of this stuff here in Seattle. Most especially stupid was the directive to stand after communion “for the sake of unity.” Of course, people don’t really want to stand, but they will if they *have* to. Sensing the resentment at the “Peter, try experiments [Read More...]

I can be even more pedantic A Jewish commenter makes the common mistake of confusing Marcionism with Catholic teaching. Not surprising since so many Catholics do too. Supersessionism and the idea that the Old Testament is somehow revoked by the New is a big no-no in Catholic teaching. “They are Israelites, and to them belong [Read More...]

Christopher Hitchens Inadvertently Proves that Sin Makes You Stupid Watching a brilliant mind like his reduced to high school sophomore filosufee like “If God made us in his image, then how do you explain bad people?

What it’s like to be Catholic some days Just replace “Protestant” with “Catholic” and you’ve read a lot of my mail over the years. I am just worried sick about those poor Protestant idol worshippers.

“It’s the fastest growing religion in America!” Adherents of Wicca and other childish fashions tout their wares with this bit of ledgerdemain. What it means is “We had ten suburban dilettantes in our coven last year and this year we have 20.” A 100% growth rate! Meanwhile, Catholic faith pokes along with a mere 200,000 [Read More...]
