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.

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...]

My Big Profound Spiritual Revelation My latest, a bit of whimsy for a summer day. (Humorous footnote: I first published this in a little Catholic charismatic newsletter. The editor added a careful footnote explaining that this was fiction and had not really occurred. I just love that.) [Read more...]

Somebody Get Kathy Shaidle a Green Card As soon as she learns to speak our language and stop adding unnecessary “u’s” to words, I’m sure she will blend right in.

We made it! We proved some very important things yesterday. 1. You can drive through downtown Seattle at speeds in excess of 75 MPH and not be ticketed. 2. That whole “90 minutes before departure” rule for domestic flights is bunk. We got there 5 minutes before boarding commenced and, with the help of a [Read More...]

A reader sends along a letter The letter below was inspired by the amazingly contemptuous and snotty reply Fr.

The cool and interesting thing about Evangelicalism is… …because, at its best, it is both devoted to Scripture *and* to paying close attention to “what works”, it tends to recapitulate Catholic faith.

Deal Hudson correct his note about the Bishop’s confab with the Usual Suspects One quick and important correction, though: In Friday’s e-letter, I mistakenly imply that Peggy Steinfels is pro-choice.

There are three types of Catholics 1. Those who will look at this lady and say, “Good enough! She’s as Christian as everybody else. Any attempt to educate her further is spiritual imperialist triumphalism!” 2. Those who will look at this lady and say, “She is a liar and a deceiver! A vendor of New [Read More...]
