Based on my comments box stats… I oppose the death penalty for bad Catholic educators! Especially if they don’t like Tolkien, consecrate Russia, or have not read Ecumenical Jihad with Mark Cameron. There! That should increase my site traffic! [Read more...]

Another argument for Home Schooling Why waste time arguing with these bean counters? Help build up the homeschool network and make it into the parallel (and state-independent) force for good that it is. Jesus was home-schooled you know. [Read more...]

“Why didn’t we learn, well, Catholicism?” A son of the 70′s AmChurch educational establishment laments his impoverishment. The happy thing is: a *ton* of extremely solid catechetical, evangelistic and apologetic material has been produced in the past 15 years of so. For my own horror stories of attempts at RCIA in the mid 80s, of [Read More...]

An actual question I got in the mail… “At your leisure, please explain how miracles happen.” Of course, *I* know the answer. But I thought I’d throw this softball out to you guys and see if you could handle it. When you’re done arguing, I’ll look your answers over and see if they are Correct [Read More...]

The other day Rod wrote about the Muslim guy who stopped another Muslim from torching a synagogue One also hears about people like this emerging in the Islamic world. And I’ve gotten email from young people in Iran who loathe the current regime and are not too terribly thrilled about Islam either after having it [Read More...]

Blessed are the peacemakers The difference between the Christian and Islamic world? In the Christian world he’s a fringe nutcase, in the Islamic world, he’s an amateur. [Read more...]

Big Huge NY Time Abuse Study Just a little something to brighten your Monday morning. Two things come to mind after a very cursory reading: How come the study focuses on the East: Boston, New Hampshire, Baltimore? We get a sweeping gesture toward the rest of the country and then return our focus The Important [Read More...]

Yep, the momentum toward war in Iraq sure looks like it’s winding down Just the other day, the Seattle Times was assuring me that the war was past it sell-by date. So I guess they’re just moving 150,000 troops and 50 bazillion tons of munitions to the region for fun. There’s no war imminent or [Read More...]

Illinois Gov Commutes All Death Row Sentences Good. By the way, part of what prompted this decision was the wrongful condemnation of 13 people. Is the death penalty so sacrosanct that it’s better the innocent should perish than that the guilty not die? [Read more...]

Ramsey Clark Offends Atheist with “Jesus was a Terrorist” remark From the Strange Bedfellows Dept. (and another link courtesy of Relapsed Catholic) we find a passel of atheists and former Christians tearing their hair out over Ramsey Clark’s stupidity. My own take on Small Victory’s observations can be found in The Latest Real Jesus. [Read more...]

Hope for the Black Community! (Thanks to Relapsed Catholic for the link!) [Read more...]

Just when you think you’ve seen everything… Ramsey Clark calls Jesus a terrorist. I can imagine some wacko on a website doing this, but a former atty gen? [Read more...]

Self-Indulgent Kooks Rally to Aid of Confessed Killer These selfish people aren’t about saving babies. They’re about satisfying their own egoistic desire to feel “prophetic.” [Read more...]

Apologies are, I think, in order The other day I blogged on the Polish parish that was pooling resources so their priest could defend himself. I quoted the (apparently) damning remark “It’s besides the point whether he’s guilty or not.” But as I think about it, I’ve decided I was too hasty in condemning these [Read More...]

Uh oh I think my son has given me the gift that keeps on giving. Blogging may be light today. [Read more...]
