Somebody writes: The article you posted today stated that Baker “confessed” to Mahony. Was this a Sacramental Confession? I doubt it, since the piece goes on to say that Mahony talked about it in a letter to diocesan priests in 1986. In another case, have you heard about the Oklahoma Diocese? It seems AB Beltran [Read More...]

Here’s a gutsy priest in training. May God raise up a million like him. We’ll need them when Caesar makes war on the Church’s legitimate rights using the opening our idiot and irresponsible bishops have so obligingly handed him. [Read more...]

Does This Strike You as Rather Disturbing? I hate to seem like I’m on Bob Sungenis’ case, but doesn’t it seem rather strange to have a feature on your site called “In the Crosshairs of Love“? Does this not send a message something like “Stalked by A Friend” or “Crushing a Skull for Compassion” or [Read More...]

When Worlds Collide Somebody contact this guy and tell him he can win an easy $1000 from Robert Sungenis. A couple of lessons learned from the piece. 1. Learning science does not make one any less a PC Jesuit: “‘The God who wanted that kind of universe is one who wanted us to participate in [Read More...]

Fr. Coelacanth Corrects the Mass A reader writes: One of those linguistic fossils is my pastor. During Mass, he says “May the Lord accept this sacrifice at our hands. For the praise and glory of God’s name. For our good and the good of all God’s Church.” So, in other words, he goes out of [Read More...]

Cardinal Roger “Richard McBrien Says I’m the True Voice of Reform” Mahony is now in the running for the coveted Heartless Prelate Award! Last week it was a horse race between Weakland and Curtiss, who were duking it out with conflicting claims to superior callousness and arrogance. But this week, Cardinal Mahony adds a whole [Read More...]

Stephen Jay Gould, RIP I always had a soft spot for the man. He was, if memory serves, an atheist like so many of his trade. But there was a willingness to at least attempt fairness toward religionists that was woefully lacking in tiresome and shallow dogmatists like Richard Dawkins. I shall miss him. God [Read More...]

More on the War on the Seal A fellow named Todd Reitmeyer is a seminarian with his own blog. He writes concerning the danger to the Seal our bishop’s stupidity and wickedness has caused: I wanted you to know I have been telling people for about two months that this is going to happen and [Read More...]

Sure it’s way funny. But imagine how much funnier your attempts to say something in Japanese would be. Reminds me of one of Mark Twain’s favorite books: English As She is Spoke, a phrasebook written by the enterprising Portuguese Pedro Carolino in 1883. Carolino did not know English but, nothing daunted, he used an English/French [Read More...]

The Lidless Eye of the Reactionary is Watching Scott Hahn too! Gotta love it when EWTN is too far out for the Truly Catholic[TM] Pharisees. For the record, some of the sweetest, most-docile-to-the-Holy-Spirit-and-teaching-of-the-Church Catholics I have ever known are Charismatics. I’d take their company over the Grand Inquisitor who wrote and published the piece linked [Read More...]

A Very Good and Thoughtful Letter A reader tells me she read “an article that I like very much written by a Palestinian Christian who is engaged in peace efforts with Israelis and his perspective on the politics of victimhood, which I have seen as operative both in the current scandal, in the mideast and [Read More...]
