Two brutal enemies attack American civilization

The first is Ahmad Khan Rahami, the Chelsea bomber who was captured after a gun battle with police. His stab at terrorism was thankfully fruitless. The second is Donald Trump, a primitive savage who hates that American civilization provides medical care and the protection of law to prisoners and would prefer that our civilization be [Read More…]

Reply to Dr. Feser regarding the death penalty

Recently, I wrote a post replying to an article co-authored by Dr. Edward Feser and Joseph M. Bessette which argued that the Church cannot reverse past teaching on capital punishment. Given that the Church has, effectively, reversed its teaching–calling for its abolition where it once permitted it–the article was misleading at best. Yes, it is [Read More…]

God vs. Trump

God: “You shall not wrong a stranger or oppress him, for you were strangers in the land of Egypt. You shall not afflict any widow or orphan. If you do afflict them, and they cry out to me, I will surely hear their cry; and my wrath will burn, and I will kill you with [Read More…]

Rebecca Bratten Weiss is simply right

Catholics must denounce the anti-semitism of the alt Right. It is poison and we who know where that can lead will be judged, if it were possible, even more harshly than the people who did not foresee what would come of the rise of Hitler. [Read more…]

Mea culpa occasioned by a really thoughtful piece on hope for the redemption of the GOP

…wrapped in a generous and beautiful retrospective on the career of George Wallace. It occasions some thoughts on my own harsh words for the debased ruin that is the GOP.  Yesterday I remarked on the growing habit of turning prayer into hexes that is happening among Super Catholics.  Then, last night, I went to prayer [Read More…]

Nothing says “prolife” like love of torture and murder

Mike Pence greatly admires Dick Cheney and would model his Vice Presidency on his. That would be the Dick Cheney who dodged the draft five times (like Pence’s running mate) and who boasted that he had no problem with the fact that he oversaw torturing an innocent man to death. The Dick Cheney who helped [Read More…]

Turning the Rosary into a Hex

Again and again I keep encountering this emerging tendency among the Greatest Catholics of All Time to want to use prayer in general and the Rosary in particular as a form of witchcraft for placing curses and hexes on people the pray-er hates and wants to harm.

A reader writes from Ireland

I am sitting in a rather new coffeehouse complete with eclectic selection of second hand furniture & light vocals. It all looks quite hipster & a different breed & blend from the Seattle coffee megacorp. But to the observant you notice the affirmative quotes, the photos of tin huts in the developing world & the [Read More…]

Caritas in Veritate 7

Just a bit of Pope Benedict XVI for a Monday morning palate cleanser: “Another important consideration is the common good. To love someone is to desire that person’s good and to take effective steps to secure it. Besides the good of the individual, there is a good that is linked to living in society: the [Read More…]
