A reasonable complaint Disputations takes issue both with this blog and with Wick Allison for pointing out that Bp. Grahmann and other bishops such as Bp. McCormack are, in my opinion, lousy bishops who have badly betrayed their flock and who give little evidence that they see very far beyond how much this inconveniences them. [Read More...]

Knowing who they are killing makes a lot fewer doctors able to bear the thought of killing him or her No wonder Planned Parenthood wants the public to be mushrooms: kept in the dark and fed b*******. Hence the opposition to “Right to Know” initiatives. May God solemnly damn Planned Parenthood. [Read more...]

Former Screenwriter for M*A*S*H finds she’s a warmonger I was noting last week how creaky, antique, and self-righteously 70s M*A*S*H sounds these days. Apparently, even some of the people who helped make it are thinking this. [Read more...]

Myth No. 9337234 Large corporations are all run by rich conservatives who affirm the religious status quo. In reality, the rich are frequently as Jesus has described them: people who have chosen Mammon over God. Only the Christian Church can offer any rational objection to a complete confidence in the rich. For she has maintained [Read More...]

More Mysteries of the Atheistic Worldview Down below, one of my atheist readers makes two blithe statements which baffle me. At one point he declares that such and so would be wrong because “conscience and reason” tell him so. He also declares he has a “right to life”. Question: Conscience and reason are, on the [Read More...]

This could be entertaining In my book, By What Authority?, I argue that, on the basis of the bare text of Scripture alone, there is no ironclad case for monogamy as the only legitimate conception of marriage. The real reason figures like James Dobson imagine that it is, is because they have imbibed Sacred Tradition [Read More...]

Found this on Amy’s Blog It’s another demonstration of Chesterton’s remark that when you neglect the big laws (against, f’rinstance, abuse of children) you don’t get freedom and you don’t even get anarchy. You get the small laws. Look for lots of “zero tolerance” thinking as our culture insanely over-reacts to the sins of clerics. [Read more...]

Bravo to Wick Allison! …for his challenge to Bp. Charles Grahmann, the lousy bishop of Dallas who is beginning to pull into the lead for the coveted Worst Still-Serving American Bishop award. You can’t jerk your flock around forever, Bishop. In Persian, they say, “Mene, Mene, Tekel, Upharsin”. In Dallas, it’s “Don’t Mess with Texas.” [Read more...]

There are Christians who Define Themselves in Terms of What They Are Not Some Protestants spend virtually no time proclaiming their Faith because they are too busy Not Being Catholic (like the guys at what I affectionately refer to as NotRoman.org. Theoretically, they are about Jesus. Really, they are about attacking Catholics. Likewise, there are [Read More...]

A Problem That May Be Coming Down the Pike Someday for Christians is the insistence by some conservative Jews that the Temple be rebuilt after the razing of the Dome of the Rock. I’ve given this little thought myself, but I suspect it will throw Evangelical supporters into a tailspin while the Catholic Church (as [Read More...]

The “Progression” from Rational to Irrational Atheism In the good old days, atheists were bold, muscular manly men who courageously offered that they were paragons of Reason bringing the light of Truth to a world huddling in fear and ignorance due to the hoodoo and priestcraft of benighted fools. Science and Reason were the new [Read More...]

Shoutin’ Bill Donahue sez… A Voice of the Fuddled member is the driving force behind yet another attempt to destroy the Seal of the Confessional. But of course. Voice of the Fuddled does not have a *clue* what the Faith is. Naturally, its loopier and most embittered members are going to launch attacks on the [Read More...]

Glob of chemicals named “Andy” struggles to show that its epiphenomena are “true” while Christian globs of chemicals have epiphenomena that are “false” and even “ridiculous”. Actually, Andy, the point is that, on your showing “mind” is simply one contortion on the idiotic face of matter. Why should I think it “higher” or more important [Read More...]
