Clericalism in the Name of a Liberated Church Read this little tale of numbskullery at Mass. What’s so annoying about this is that the priests no doubt view themselves as “takin’ it to the streets”, “givin’ the Mass back to the People” and all those other slang phrases which involve takin’ the letter “g” off [Read More...]

Mayor Keating of Potemkinville* Resigning Head of Toothless Meaningless National Review Board bagged after complaining about ecclesial stonewalling. Mahony explains, “I never meant for them to actually *do* anything!” Keating, to be sure, was a loose cannon given to pinheaded statements urging laity to not go to Mass. But then, the bishops picked him, didn’t [Read More...]

EU doggedly marches toward becoming… “a technical order of the most marvelous intricacy, which will have been constructed and which will operate without true political ends: and this technological order will hang, as it were, suspended over a moral confusion; and this moral confusion will itself be suspended over a spiritual vacuum.” However, nature abhors [Read More...]

A reader muses on love I liked your blog on the sexualization of every aspect of human relationships – I agree, naturally. There is another unfortunate byproduct of this process. Namely, that since “Love” now has come to signify predominately Eros in American English usage, the phrase “God is Love” has lost its apologetic impact. [Read More...]

Vigilante Neanderthals Write Cowardly Threatening Letters Oh, now *this* is an intelligent approach. Have you ever noticed how many Christians who claim to be interested in the “good of the Church” are, in fact, medicating some bizarre inner demon?

I thought this was a typical “We never met a heretic we didn’t like” NY Times puff piece on Elaine Pagels But a reader disagrees: I thought the piece made her look like she hasn’t got a clue – period. I can respect someone who says: God’s a bastard – or, God doesn’t exist. They [Read More...]

The Sexualization of Everything The excellent Peter Sean Bradley writes concerning this blog: I happen to know empirically that your correspondent is absolutely correct.
