By the way… …while I’m engaged in my nefarious plan to deceive the nations and lead countless souls into error and damnation, allow me to recommend The Hidden Key to Harry Potter by John Granger.

Joseph Adamec of the Altoona-Johnstown diocese throws his hat into the ring for the Worst Still-Serving Bishop Award! It’s a tough go, given all the sleaze of the past year, to find bishops who distinguish themselves in corruption, but Bp. Adamec appears to be trying to go for the gold here. One informative article tells [Read More...]
