Pick Your Pope

This guy: or this guy.

The Multiplication of the Crashed Hard Drives…

…will be the first miracle toward Obama’s canonization. It’s shocking how little faith people have that there is a perfectly reasonable explanation for all this. St. Rosemary Woods, pray for Obama! [Read more...]

More White Evangelicals than American Jews…

…say God gave the state of Israel to the Jewish people. This is where it pays to have a Magisterium. The state of Israel is a secular nation state like America, France, or Australia.

Simcha Fisher on the Odious Pewsitter Site

In parts of the Islamic world, women can get horsewhipped and killed for the “crime” of getting raped.  That’s because, in certain barbarous parts of the world, all that matters is that the female organism underwent the act of coitus, forced or consensual, to incur ritual guilt with very real penalties.  It’s a mindset that [Read More...]
