More Signs of Hope! A reader sends along this note: First episcopal-priest-prog.-rocker Kemper Crabb preaches the Eucharist to the Cornerstone crowd (Kemper Crabb – The Implications of the Eucharist for the Arts) and then flat-broke-critics-darling-Catholic-revert Bill Mallonee gives the Phantom Tollbooth crowd more Eucharistic theology to ponder. The latter is especially heartening to me since [Read More...]

Iraqi Civilians Keep Dying, No WMDs Found Yet, Peace and Prosperity at Hand Just a reminder: our grandchildren will still be in Iraq 50 years from now. I doubt very much that a culture with the historical perspective of a fruitfly is really going to be able to pull that off. I doubt even more [Read More...]

Join the “We Want Catholic Radio” Drive Do you want Catholic Radio available to every single person in the United States? So do we! There are around 1600 Protestant Radio Stations in the US while there are just over 50 Catholic stations. This means that Catholic Radio is available to less then 5% of all [Read More...]

Drink your way to health I await the moment that some enterprising exegete proves that Jesus was actually thinking about this molecule when he said, “He who eats my flesh and drinks my blood has eternal life.” Anything’s possible, believe me. I know of exegetes who insist that “being born again of water and the [Read More...]

Submission A reader writes: So yesterday’s reading is the infamous “wives submit to your husbands” line from Paul. I always look forward to seeing the creative ways the priests will try to wriggle out of saying anything substantive. Most often they will completely ignore it.

Liberals continue to console themselves with delusions A friend of mine, an academic, remarks that the first thing you need to realize about intellectuals is that they were generally the sort of people who could never get a date in high school. So they consoled themselves by saying, “I don’t want to go to your [Read More...]

Specious reading of C of E crisis I don’t buy that this about Evangelicals suspicious of the Anglo-Catholic Romanist leanings. Judging by the rather warm relationship I have with serious Evangelical Anglicans, I think it obvious what the problem is: liberal Anglicans are demanding we all sign off on gay ordinations, marriage, abortion and all [Read More...]
