Dhimmi Pope refuses to call for arms to defend persecuted Christians

Here’s his gutless public statement: Beloved, do not be surprised at the fiery ordeal which comes upon you to prove you, as though something strange were happening to you. But rejoice in so far as you share Christ’s sufferings, that you may also rejoice and be glad when his glory is revealed. If you are [Read More...]

Hey Salem, OR and environs! A reader needs work!

I have a reader who lost her daughter in April and is struggling financially with funeral costs, among other things.  She’s looking for work and could really use a) our prayers and b) a job.  If somebody in your neck of the woods could help her out, it would be fantastic.  She doesn’t have a [Read More...]

Robin Williams, RIP

He brought joy to a lot of people.  May he find in death the peace he could not find in life, through Christ our Lord. And please, if you must comment, prayer only.  If you feel a compulsion to make some political commentary, or wish him into hell because you’ve decided God has authorized you [Read More...]

Technology is a Force Multiplier

The more access we have to technology, the easier it becomes for fewer and fewer people to have a bigger and bigger impact on more and more people. And as the impact gets bigger, we have a hard time taking in the fact that so few people could really have such devastating effects. So, for [Read More...]

Catholic.org runs false headline claiming Francis has issued call to arms in Iraq

This headline is dangerously and recklessly false: Pope Francis calls for ARMED RESPONSE to defend Christians from Genocide – Middle East -… No. He has not: Vatican spokesman Fr. Federico Lombardi, S.J., said that Pope Francis “urgently calls on the international community to protect all those affected by the violence and to guarantee all necessary assistance [Read More...]

A manly anonymous reader gets to the bottom of things

A reader from the Party of Personal Responsibility locates the real culprits for the catastrophe in Iraq: “This situation wasn’t caused by George W…. It was caused by Mohammed and the religion he invented; feminism; and John Paul II. Which have turned the men of the West into moral pansies.” I’ll give you Mohammed as [Read More...]

We are now entering the “How were we supposed to know?” phase of history in Iraq

“Those who decide that all peaceful means that international law makes available are exhausted assume a grave responsibility before God, their conscience and history,” – Vatican spokesman Joaquin Navarro-Valls, March 20, 2003 I’m finding it harder and harder to argue against the fact that we need to kill the rabid dog that is ISIS. I can’t stand [Read More...]

Cosmetic bombs and real help

I suspect a strong inverse statistical relationship between the “Bomb Iraq!” crowd and those who want to give these refugees the asylum we absolutely *owe* them. The more we want to drop a few bombs–to assuage our conscience that we “did something” before leaving these people to their fate and shrugging “we tried”–the less we [Read More...]

It turns out that when you cut taxes on people who have boatloads of money

…and try to get blood from the turnip of people who have no money (just to make sure the poor are punished good and hard like they deserve), your state winds up with no money and can’t take care of the common good like it’s supposed to.  It’s like all those biblical warnings are true [Read More...]
