You Thought It was Over, But It’s Just Like Before

Will there never be an end to the Indian Wars? Native Americans are the most screwed-over of all of America’s screwed-over minorities. It would seem that the white race alone received the divine command, to subdue and replenish the earth! for it is the only race that has obeyed it—the only one that hunts out [Read More…]

Anne Kennedy Writes a Nice Defense…

…of Simcha Fisher. Perhaps the two most absurd things I hear from the Paladins of Family and Life at St. Blogs are these: 1. It was “scandalous” that a Catholic writer should tell a bawdy joke about a thrice-married, draft-dodging strip club owner who brags that his years of dodging sexually transmitted diseases were his [Read More…]

The Jonathan Swift Dinner Banquet Invite Arrived!

If I were you, I’d order a child of about five: still a lot of fat on ’em.  By the time they turn 12 they are getting a bit stringy. But that’s me.  Your taste may be different.  Consider it a Modest Proposal. [Read more…]

French police threaten women for not showing off enough flesh

Burkini bans are how a civilization that has no idea what it is doing try to symbolically cope with terrorism. It really hits that sweet spot of doing nothing about terrorism, and yet pointlessly punishing innocent people in such a way as to help make unstable youth ever more inclined to support terrorism. Smart. [Read more…]

Speaking of Connecting the Dots

Here is the latest bonanza! Last Thursday, we finished up a discussion of our responsibilities as voters and political thinkers in light of the Tradition: On Friday, Deacon Steve Greydanus and I yakked about Ben-Hur and other movies: And on Monday, Simcha and I gabbed about question from our listeners and got calls about soap [Read More…]

An Australian friend writes…

“When people can utter the sentence “Mark Shea is a leftist” with a straight face, the whole world shudders in horror at what America has become.” Yeah, that’s kind of it. [Read more…]

Getting broken has been strangely good

Was feeling pretty down last week.  Bullets you fire through your own feet can carry a bit of a sting.  And great flaming walls of hate washing over you can also bring on the blues.  So my assumption was that I would more or less curl up in a ball and feel sorry for myself. But [Read More…]

We have no king but Trump!

“I’ll tell you one thing: I get elected president, we’re going to be saying ‘merry Christmas’ again. Just remember that,” he said. “And by the way, Christianity will have power, without having to form.” He added: “Because if I’m there, you’re going to have plenty of power. You don’t need anybody else. You’re going to [Read More…]

Timothy Putnam on our Need for a Church…

#IstandwithSimchaFisher

Msgr. Charles Pope, has a piece warning us to prepare for persecution. Prophetic considering that a very good Catholic woman named Simcha Fisher, faithful to the Catholic Church, a mother of *ten* children who has worked tirelessly as a witness to the greatness and goodness of our Holy Catholic Faith, a fine writer who could be [Read More…]

Some of You May Be Surprised to Learn that I Have a Temper

Or not. At any rate, it’s a frequent issue at confession for me and it gets me in trouble as, for instance, when I lose a writing gig at the National Catholic Register, a periodical that has shown me nothing but kindness for over a decade.  I’m grateful to them for those years and I [Read More…]

Works of Piety, Seattle Style

It’s a bit of a caricature, but there’s a fair amount of truth here too: In Seattle, the real problem with the Democratic Party, is that it’s way too conservative. In Seattle, you signal your allegiance to the flag by keeping the latest copy of The Stranger perched on the corner of your office desk [Read More…]

Save the Children is also helping in Syria

…and they have an excellent rating from Charity Navigator: You may have seen the photo of 5-year-old Omran Daqneesh sitting dazed and bloodied in an ambulance after he was pulled from rubble following an airstrike in Aleppo. His widely broadcast story brings home the horror of being a child in Syria right now. Omran survived [Read More…]

Over at Epic Pew…

Yr Obdt Svt is talking about his struggles with Fiction. But here’s the thing: with the Faith, you are–very, very carefully–not making stuff up.  Indeed, the whole point of writing about the Faith is to be as unoriginal as you can possibly be.  My goal in writing about the Faith is not to invent but [Read More…]
