Remember what I said about Gladiator games on pay per view? Consider this sort of stuff a dress rehearsal. Now, remember, all you champions of American culture as infinitely superior to the Catholic-Church-that-oppresses-women-and-holds-backward-views-of-the-place-of-woman-in-society: your TV is your god, your TV is your god, your TV is your god.

What to do? Pike’s Peak? Fossils? Cowboy Museum? Multitudes, multitudes in the Valley of Decision. Yesterday, went to Uncle Wilbur Fountain where kids can run around and get soaked. Every hour or so, Uncle Wilbur rises out of the fountain playing a tuba solo and squirting water from the tuba. True odd Americana. Half the [Read More...]

Of course, all of the geology in the previous blog is something that only a blinded faux Catholic like me or Fr. Stanley Jaki could believe Real Catholics know the earth is as old as an Anglican bishop said it was in the 17th Century. Ecumenism can be found in the strangest places. [Read more...]

Today we got up at 5 AM… Which my chest cold wracked body thought was waaaaaay too early, and went to the Garden of the Gods. This is a spectacyoolar red sandstone rock formation made of rocks which were formed by river deposits laid down about 275 million years ago, pressed into sandstone, and then [Read More...]

Colson on Gibson It is a happy side effect of the Culture War that an Evangelical can spring to the defense of a hard-core Catholic (perhaps more hardcore than the Pope) versus the bigots who manufacture American culture. Everybody who’s actually seen the movie (including gung-ho, pro-Israeli Evangelicals) loves it and says the charge of [Read More...]

Mark Sullivan (not exactly a fevered liberal) says what I’m trying to say about Newman better than I do I’m well aware of who Halsall is and the often crack-brained advocacy “scholarship” he does when he’s trying to ram through his agendas. His tendency to eroticise every same sex friendship is often preposterous. But even [Read More...]

Correction, Dave I’m not doing any speaking. I’m on vacation! Today we went to the Vatican of American Evangelicalism. Goofed around at Whit’s End. Ate ice cream. Slid on slides. Took a picture of the little bell that rings whenever customers open the door at Whit’s End (it’s in the little museum). Lots of lovely, [Read More...]
