Is that all? What a piker! I put it at 100%! But then, I have inside information (Matthew 24… the book of Revelation…). Does he know that “apocalypse” was used by Greek-speaking Jews of the first century to refer, not to nuclear war, but to the moment at which the bride and groom disrobed before [Read More...]

Fr. Rob Johansen puts the “God” in Robert Goddard …and muses about how sin makes you stupid, especially if you are a pro-choice Hillary worshipper. (Kudos to Fr. Brian Stanley for that great pun.) [Read more...]

People, people! Why is it that any attempt to point out that our culture is a huge factor in the Situation is always met with defensive stuff like “This doesn’t let the hierarchy off the hook, you know! Why do you keep blaming the laity? It’s the Pope who made these appointments! It’s the bishops [Read More...]

Greg Popcak Obligingly Points out Two Things I’ve Been Saying First, Bill O’Reilly is a bullying semi-Catholic gasbag. Second, O’Reilly, supposedly a conservative Catholic, nicely illustrates my point: which is that Catholics from his vaunted “90%” don’t *want* faithful bishops. They want bishops who will leave them alone and not bother them about their sex [Read More...]

There are two basic responses to this sort of thing One response is to gripe and moan and complain. And to be sure, there’s much to complain about. The wretched catechesis is inexcusable and another fine fruit of the brilliant pastoral care of Bp. O’Brien. But if you just sit there moaning and complaining while [Read More...]

Two Editorials One from the Dallas Morning News and one from the Grey Lady on Bp. O’Brien’s unbelievably irresponsible butt-saving machinations. I’m personally hoping the DA just says “The hell with this stupid attempt to monkey with running the Church. Here, take it back, Phoenix Catholics. It’s yours, not Caesar’s.” and then just does his [Read More...]

Another Portrait of that Hero of Christendom The man who inspires massive cheering throngs of Christians to mob football stadiums in his honor. The spark behind the swelling conflagration of “Christian terrorism” that threatens to engulf the world. Forget about Islamic terror and the destruction of the World Trade Center.

Interesting debate… …between John Pacheco (who used to work for CAI before it imploded) and Bob Sungenis. Bob, applying the theological prowess that makes him an expert on why the earth doesn’t rotate and why Jews think it’s okay to rape little girls, has joined the crowd of people freaking out over the Pope’s meetings [Read More...]

The Old Moral Equivalence Strategem Now and then some screwball like Eric Rudolph does some evil thing in the name of Christianity.

I strongly doubt Bush was lying However, the fact that articles like this are being written could mean trouble on the horizon. Suppose, however, for the sake of argument, that he lied. He’s still got some things going for him that Nixon didn’t. First, he’s likeable. Second, we are still locked in mortal combat with [Read More...]

Well, Did we All have a Wonderful Rainbow Sash Day Yesterday? For some of us, it was also Pentecost Sunday, some sort of religious thing practiced by Christians.
