New email address One of the advantages of the new DSL line is that I can now cancel my mindspring account since I don’t need to two ISPs. If any of you have my old mindspring address saved (you know who you are) you should get rid of it and replace it with “chez.ami-at-verizon.net” (note [Read More...]

“He also allied himself with the Society of St. Pius X, a breakaway Catholic group that once harbored a Nazi war criminal and that has parishes in the Irish town where he fled after shooting Slepian and the French town where he was captured.” Shazam! The SSPX, sympathetic to Nazis and helping out an abortionist [Read More...]

The Secret of Jesus’ Miracles? Hemp! Note curious BBC standards. Normally we don’t dignify contributors to “High Times” with the title “researcher”. But when the cause is a far-fetched attempt to debunk Christianity, such rules are relaxed according to the same standard which magically transforms Larry Flynt into a “journalist.” [Read more...]

“Mario Derksen holds Olson’s feet to the fire and pulls the rug out from under his excuses.” Mario “Mixed Metaphor” Derksen, Waterboy of the Lidless Eye Brigade, heaps condemnation on Carl Olsen for his failure to acknowledge that a) an ecumenical Council of the Church was in error and b) Mario Derksen is superior to [Read More...]

The All in One Death Penalty Post Various responses to various remarks herein. Then, I think I will have said my piece. A reader sez: No one wants the state to kill “as many people as it can.” Actually, that is pretty much what people are arguing. Greg Krehbiel gives as his first rational for [Read More...]

“It’s besides the point whether he’s guilty or not.” Poles imitate OJ jurors. Meanwhile, the parish priest where abuse took place blames the victim. However, in a hopeful sign, the bishop does the right thing and tells the pastor he’s a cretin. Judging from the clannish response of the parish, I wonder how much of [Read More...]

Am I the only one who thinks it’s rather suicidal… for Christians in a rapidly de-Christianizing and increasingly anti-Christian culture to urge Caesar to kill as many citizens as he can? It’s not my main reason for thinking the Pope is basically right to want to limit (not “abolish”) capital punishment. But I think it [Read More...]

USS Clueless struggles to figure out how to account for morality in an atheistic worldview As usual, the atheist fails, having to a) declare that Just War theory is outmoded (I would agree that it needs updating, but not scrapping) and b) smuggle in stuff that makes no sense apart from a universe presided over [Read More...]

American Conservatives Baffled By Pope Who Prefers Peace to War “After all those years of hailing him as a fellow conservative Reaganite, he betrays us by daring to fear that war with Iraq could have disastrous consequences and by fretting about the fact that the Christians fare far worse under US allies like Saudi Arabia [Read More...]
