Genetically Modified Food Fight Rome recently said, “Sounds fine to us.” Green Kiwis are upset by this. Some people think the Church has no business involving itself in such matters. I think the Church *must* involve itself in such questions. Certainly the questions of “How do we feed starving people?” vs. “What are our responsibilities [Read More...]

The Spectator is Off Its Meds However, this quote, if real, shows how ripe some people are for the rule of Antichrist: The former Belgian prime minister Paul-Henri Spaak once made a plea for ‘a man of sufficient stature to hold the allegiance of all people’ and added, ‘Be he God or the Devil we [Read More...]

If some Jewish kid wore a yarmulkah to a Catholic school I daresay the school wouldn’t forbid it. [Read More...]

A reader asks: Can you point to some way an ordinary catholic can or should forgive someone’s sins against a third party? I am really quite surprised to hear so many Catholic deny the principle that the Catholic sacrament of confession presupposes: that sins hurt the whole body of Christ, not just the individual sinned [Read More...]


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...]
