Ryan-Led GOP Votes Full Funding for Planned Parenthood

Dear “Prolife” Suckers who told me I had blood on my hands for refusing to vote Romney/Ryan. Dear People who told me that God *commanded* me to vote for Randian corporate slave Paul Ryan because he’s Catholic. I’m not going to ask for an apology since I know the Party of Personal Responsibility doesn’t take [Read More…]

Why is Kelly Thatcher Worth More than a Thousand St. Blog’s Bloviators on Islam?

Because she actually knows Muslims and is not just spewing bilge she read on some Muslim-bashing site. Listening to most of the claptrap about Muslims and Islam from right wing culture war sites is like listening to “analyses” of the Catholic faith from nobody but James White and Jack Chick or some crazed ex-Catholic like [Read More…]

A question about private revelation and hell

A reader writes: What do you think about the many, many horrific dreams and visions of Catholics over the years regarding Hell?  When I first really dove into Catholic literature, I remember being really shook up over St. Teresa’s vision of the place she had merited there.  She was shoved into a tiny hole in [Read More…]

Exquisite Perfection

A funny thing happened in that Joke with the Pope contest … The Joke with the Pope contest is over and the winner is … a rabbi who says of himself he is “the world’s only practicing clergyman doing stand-up comedy … intentionally.” The winning joke is: “My wife and I have been married for [Read More…]

Question about the formation of the Protestant Canon of Scripture

A reader writes: Since I last wrote to you (about Dum Diversas), I have been received and confirmed into the Church. Thank you for your kind and respectful answers to my honest questions, and thank you so much for writing By What Authority. That book was the nail in the coffin of my Protestant life [Read More…]

This speaks to me at a deep visceral level

The Star Trek community is going to split into two rival factions like Sunni and Shia, following the increasingly alien (get it?) visions of the Star Trek universe captained (get it?) by Roddenberry and Abrams. It’ll get out of control. It’ll get out of control and we’ll be lucky to live through it. My hope [Read More…]

The Party of Life Now Measures Itself by How Many Children it is Willing to Kill

The toxicity of the anti-abortion-but-not-prolife party on full display: “We’re talking about ruthless things tonight,” said Hewitt, “carpet bombing, toughness, war. And people wonder, could you do that? Could you order air strikes that would kill innocent children by not the scores, but the hundreds and the thousands? Could you wage war as a commander-in-chief?” [Read More…]

Behold the Shameless Plug of Shamelessness!

Reader Matthew Schmidt writes: Yo. I’m a new Catholic writer (and a long time reader (and share your initials!)) Since you’ve posted about other catholic-y stuff, I hope you don’t mind if I SHAMELESSLY PLUG my own works. Prince Anak the Immortal is a young adult science fiction novella that’s actually suitable for young adults. [Read More…]

Prolife people need to really understand something

You know that thing of how every election year, Republicans lie to you and say that “This is the Most Important Election of Our Lifetime!
