Andrew Sullivan needs to brush up on his theology For reasons that are not too terribly difficult to grasp, Sullivan is eager to find examples of cafeteria Catholicism among the ranks of theocons like George Weigel. It makes his own selectivity about other aspects of Catholic teaching more palatable, after all. Sullivan writes: THEOCONS VERSUS [Read More...]

Given that Jody has decided to take up more or less permanent residence in one of my comments boxes… and only use his own blog to post short links driving all his traffic here, I feel as though I should do something. But what? Change the name of my blog to “Mark’s Home for Wayward [Read More...]

Rod Dreher on The Rapture Trap I’m glad this fine book is getting some press. Ideas have consequences, in this case, both political and spiritual. Thigpen’s book is a really fine piece of work that deals, not only with loony dispensational theories of The End, but also with how to deal with various loony Catholic [Read More...]

Pelosi is a “Conservative Catholic” Apparently, where she comes from “liberal Catholic”, means somebody who openly worships Moloch, smears themselves with bull’s blood in Dionysian orgies, and channels Ramtha’s dialogues with Joseph Stalin. If not, I can’t for the life of me grasp what she could possibly mean by “conservative Catholic.” What will you wager [Read More...]

Sparse blogging Monday Running the fambly here and there, taking five-year-old Sean (who is now past his Viking Phase, thankyouveddymuch, and on to his Indian Phase) round to some Indian displays at local museums. Finally, a fascination with something local! I couldn’t get to a Norse fjord very easily, but we actually have real live [Read More...]

This isn’t a religious war or anything A statement attributed to Al Qaeda threatened more attacks in New York and Washington unless America stops supporting Israel and converts to Islam, an Arab TV reporter who received the unsigned document said Saturday. Authorities are puzzling over what “converts to Islam” might mean. They downplay any suggestion [Read More...]

Followup on the soap opera with Fr. Haley and his bishop I mention this below. Now a source familiar with the situation tells me: 1) When the bishop found out about the situation [meaning the affair between Fr. Jim and a parishioner], he personally ordered Fr. Jim to cut off all contact with the woman. [Read More...]

Andy and Jody Fight a Straw Man … as is the custom with atheists.

On not making the Dem’s mistake One of the things that sank the Dems was obsession with the past. They stopped having anything to say, because they were so obsessed with “overturning 2000″ and other historical grievances. It’s the same mentality that makes the Balkans the happy land you see today. Catholics pissed at our [Read More...]

Comparative Cartooning Scholars announced today that the legendary roots of the “Mouse Event” have been definitively proven. In a shocking revelation, a seven hundred year old fresco bearing an uncanny similarity to Mickey Mouse showed definitively that the long-accepted paradigm held by Disney traditionalists was in profound crisis. According to Disney tradition, Mickey Mouse was [Read More...]

Big Brother on the March in England “People should not have to go through life being subjected to abuse because of who they are or what they believe in,” says the irony-impaired Commander Cressida Dick of the (I’m not making this up) Diversity Directorate, adding, “You there!
