God bless General Mattis

Marine General James “Mad Dog” Mattis appears to be a soldier of the old school who recognizes that war requires violence, but that such violence is something you have to do, not something you get to do.  One of his more memorable quotes (in a speech to his troop when they arrived in Iraq in [Read More…]

Living “as if”

The president-elect’s Chief Strategist is a man who proudly boasts giving a platform to such filth. What do we do about enemies who advocate grave moral evil and who now have massive power? Pray for their redemption and work for their crushing defeat. Fight them, not with hatred, but with a will to live “as [Read More…]

How I Spent My Weekend

So this weekend was really quite lovely. Went to an American Solidarity Party planning session over at the UW Newman Center to see what happens at such things and was happy with the energy and the savvy at work in this nascent movement. As a Chestertonian and a Frank Capra fan, I’m a believer in [Read More…]

How the Kingdom Comes

“Christendom has before now taken up arms in its own defense; or even in a pathetic attempt to recover the Holy Places. Christian princes, before now, have tried to spread the faith at the point of the sword, always, nearly always, with disastrous results for religion. But the substantial victories of the Church have lain, [Read More…]

Definition Games, Part Deux

“Prove to me that the Alt Right is racist!” Okey doke. Here’s the guy who coined “Alt Right” talking about the superiority of the white race and pretending that swastikas are value-neutral “ancient religious symbols” we can no longer understand to have any particular meaning when they show up on walls, Jewish cemeteries, or in [Read More…]

Chesterton is just so great!

Something for the impending holiday. “A turkey is more occult and awful than all the angels and archangels in so far as God has partly revealed to us an angelic world, he has partly told us what an angel means. But God has never told us what a turkey means. And if you go and [Read More…]

Dave Armstrong: More relief for your complete bafflement

Dave writes: “If NPR or Mark Shea think there is some — any — connection between [Steve] Bannon and this wingnut Spencer, why don’t they prove it?” Sooooo like this article written by Milo Yiannopoulos, during Bannon’s tenure as chairman of Breitbart Media, praising Spencer to the skies as an “intellectual” and saying it’s “wrong” [Read More…]

Dave Armstrong: It’s not complex

Steve Bannon said of his Breitbart Empire: “We’re the platform for the Alt Right.” There’s the link (which I provided before) documenting those words that you claim are undocumented. What is the Alt Right? It describes itself as a movement “dedicated to the heritage, identity, and future of European people in the United States” in [Read More…]

What the “Prolife” Christian Trump Supporter is Now Committed Body and Soul to Defending

Listen to this: What “prolife Christian” Trump supporters will spend the next four years nuancing, denying the existence of, excusing, and defending. This is not normal. This is not right. This is not American. This is not Catholic. We cannot truly call on God, the Father of all, if we refuse to treat in a [Read More…]
