Why are Red Barns Red?

Because of the physics of dying stars. Of course you could say that about every heavy element.  Why is gold rare?  Because of the physics of dying stars.  Why is water plentiful?  Same deal.  Why are you made out of carbon, hydrogen, oxygen and nitrogen?  You called it. [Read more…]

The Party That Cries Wolf and Benghazi

Nobody Seems to Like My Idea

…of the Dems and GOP holding their conventions together and having a massive cage match in which candidates and delegates battle to the death until just one is standing. Pay-per-view costs could go directly to fund Veteran’s Benefits, a lot of people nobody will ever miss will be permanently gone and when we are down [Read More…]

If you listen to the Church and vote to lessen evil

…you do not have to say a word in praise of Hillary’s evil policies.  You can bash them all you like (and I do).  Her support for abortion is evil (just like Trump’s).  Her cynical ease with lying is repellent (just like Trump’s).  Her bellicose ease with violence and war is wicked (just like Trump’s).

Vatican Unveils Plaque in Honor of Msgr. Hugh O’Flaherty

He was the Irish priest who saved 6500 lives, most of them Jewish, from the Nazis.  A clever man with a knack for cloak and dagger disguises, he earned the nickname “Scarlet Pimpernel of the Vatican”. His arch-enemy, Herbert Kappler, was a member of the SS and Chief of Police in Rome.  He tried and [Read More…]

Exhibit A in How Defense of Trump Distorts Christian Witness

A reader writes: Trump has grown in virtue. Mark Shea claims to defend life 100% but is willing to overlook secured borders, jihadists, the overthrow of Christianity via caliphate building, minority enabling via pandering, illicit trade, evidenced by his third party advertisements. An unwillingness to defend the lives of people who defend life. Notice the infallible [Read More…]

Breitbart Trumpkins Bring the KKKlass

It takes a lot to get me to empathize with Bill Kristol, the Wrongest Man and Falsest Prophet in American politics.  But Breitbart just achieved this feat by labelling him a “renegade Jew” for the delectation of the racist swine who constitute Trump’s base. [Read more…]

How Trump gets Christians to distort their own teachings

As I have argued in this space before, the only actual fruit of Catholics throwing their lot in with cynical “prolife conservative” politicians like Donald Trump is that the Catholic twists himself into a pretzel to please Trump and then devotes all his actual energy to battling prudence and the Church, not fighting for the unborn. Case in [Read More…]

The Problem With Conservatism

Twenty years ago J. Budzisewski penned a diagnosis of the diseases which have led to the current state of American conservatism on life support.  American conservative Christians need to decouple from this vampiric, corrupting thing before it takes them down with it.  Jesus is not Messiah Emeritus and Trump has not taken over his job [Read More…]
