Since there’s been some confusion… I have no quarrel was those who call themselves “Traditionalist” Catholic per se. If you call yourself a “Traditionalist” and assent to the basic ideas laid out by Pete Vere here, then that’s just ducky with me. If you reject any or all of these ideas, then call yourself what [Read More...]

Rod, perhaps the best compromise would have been… Guilty, with a suspended sentence. Sort of like the end of Leon Uris’ QBVII. A fine or something. By the way, I still think Keeler is extremely eager to practice human sacrifice in order to save his derriere. Just as he offered accused priests up for human [Read More...]

For Reactionary Dissenters, the proposition that the perfidious Jews are tunnelling under the house is called “sharing God’s love” Like I say, the message of Reactionary Dissent is “Be afraid. Be very afraid!” No faith, hope or love that I can discern. The Shadow Tradition lives in the article Cork references: the notion that “if [Read More...]

Is there a copyright lawyer in the house? I’m one of those rare people who thought Napster had it coming. I don’t believe in copying albums you haven’t bought, much for the same reason I would resent it if people xeroxed my books and didn’t pay me for them. But a question occurred to me [Read More...]

Why it’s so much easier to take conservatives seriously as moral thinkers Two words: Trent Lott. When one of their own makes it clear he is a self-serving jackass unfit for high office, conservatives have shown their adherence to principle, by and large, and demanded his ouster. Compare and contrast this with the defense of [Read More...]

That’s because, Jonah, The Lord of the Rings is not about the Triumph of Good Over Evil It’s about the redemption of evil by self-sacrificial love. Good does not “triumph” over evil in Tolkien’s universe because it is a Catholic universe. As Tolkien himself said, “I am a Roman Catholic. I do not expect history [Read More...]

Stokes mostly found not guilty The practical results of this trial seem about right to me: the guy doesn’t go up the river forever, his abuser has a pain in the hip to remind him that sin is evil.
