Bishop-Elect Robert Barron Makes the Same Point All the Time

Like, f’rinstance here: What is striking to me is how many postmoderns, both atheist and Christian, are Marcionites. Marcion was a second century heretic who saw the God of the Old Testament, not as the Father, but as the enemy of Jesus: a bloodthirsty killer Jesus came to deliver us from. Many atheists take a [Read More...]

A reader is jittery and distracted by prophetic fads

She writes: We’re less than two weeks away from September 1st.  People have been freaking out about this month all year.  This is a repeat of the Y2K and 2012 fears.  Society is supposed to go belly-up this month.  People are panicking about the Shemitah (isn’t that a work of fiction?).  Self-proclaimed prophets not sanctioned by the [Read More...]

A Reader is Miffed at a Reflection I Wrote on the Gospel a While Back

He writes: Forgive me if I am reading into it, but your reflection on the Pharisees, sound and insightful in itself, seems to insinuate a rather harsh criticism of Pope Francis’ Catholic critics, or at any rate of an undefined subset of them. On this interpretation, the Holy Father is charismatically (not just juridically) in [Read More...]

Fascinating History

Bill Doino Jr. sends along a recommendation for this book, which looks pretty cool: The Vatican’s silence in the face of Nazi atrocities remains one of the great controversies of our time.
