It’s vital that the universe hear my views on Captain America

Consider this: A) Cap can lift Thor’s hammer, so have no fear he’s Hydra. B) “KA-PWAK!” is but one of many Marvel sound effects (my fave being KRAKADOOOOOOM!!!!!) that deserve special mention in some category of Comic Book Oscars that somebody needs to invent. That is all.  Shea out! You’re welcome! [Read more…]

For the love of all that is godless, please stop repeating this stupid meme, atheists

Good to know hard-headed rationalist atheists don’t simply accept by faith the urban legends told them by their authorities and pass them down without a shred of critical examination. Do please document for me where the Bible says left-handedness is wrong? Here, let me help you. Behold, every mention of the left hand in Scripture: [Read More…]

The one absolutely consistent constant of our foreign policy…

…over multiple decades and administrations is the destruction of the Church abroad. I used to think that was a bug. Now I believe our elites regard it as a feature. Not surprising really.  Our civilization is devoted above all to Mammon, Mars, and Venus, not Christ.  You cannot have fellowship between Christ and Belial. [Read more…]

Dear Catholic “Prolife” Trumpkin

Watch this: Feel that awful feeling in the pit of your stomach? That’s what you are signing on to defend, day after day, week after week, month after month, year after year. Not just for the duration of a Trump Administration (God forbid). But for the rest of your life, for all eternity. When you [Read More…]

Thank Goodness that, as Donald Trump’s Ascendancy has Shown…

….that ugly legacy of racism no longer exists. Indeed, as Trump’s valiant youth of serial fornication as his “personal Vietnam” demonstrates, Trump completely identifies with and shared Ali’s sufferings as a conscientious objector. Ali suffered jail time for his convictions. Trump suffered an infant nephew with cerebral palsy upon whom he took vengeance in a [Read More…]

Dear Dixie Chicks: Suggesting Trump Needs to be Killed is not Cool

I’m as game as anybody for mocking Trump.  He’s as delightful a target as you could ask for.  But not with a song suggesting what he needs is a good assassination. They should apologize. [Read more…]

It is so important to “small government conservatives” to punish and humiliate the poor…

…that they continue to insist on doing it even when it is a total and huge waste of time and money. Facts do not matter to these people. Proven waste and stupidity is unimportant.  What matters is the satisfaction of the itch to inflict pointless cruelty on the weak.  No wonder they love torture so [Read More…]

What good is the “Christian” part…

…of Christian meditation? Well, if you think meditation is merely the process of emptying the mind, then nothing.  But if, as Christians do, you think meditation is the process of clearing the mind of earthly junk so that you can meditate on God fully revealed in the life, death, passion, and resurrection of the Son [Read More…]

Excellent! A fight to abolish the death penalty led by conservatives

Colby Coash can point to the moment his evolution in thinking about the death penalty began. It was Sept. 3, 1994, and Coash — now a conservative senator in the Nebraska legislature but then a freshman at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln — decided to go with some friends to the state penitentiary. Willie Otey, convicted [Read More…]

On Churches and Ecclesial Communities

A reader remarks on the tiny kerfuffle among a few Orthodox bishops who said the Catholic Church is not a real Church the other day: Gives me a chuckle as the tables are turned on us Romans. Didn’t Benedict once describe Protestants as “ecclesial communities”? Partly correct. Except it was not “Benedict” and its was [Read More…]

Dropping the Atomic Bomb Was Wrong. Period.

Catholic Answers brings the common sense truth–and naturally gets reviled for it by the anti-abortion-but-not-prolife “faithful conservative Catholics” who *claim* that the defense of human life from conception to natural death is their “core non-negotiable value” but who in fact devote their time and energy, not to defending the unborn, but to fighting the Church on [Read More…]

Every once in a while, a combox comment just slays me

…with the sheer unself-awareneness of the comment.  My all time favorite, of course, will forever remain, “YOU ARE A IDOIT!” But pulling a decent second is this from an an American Spectator attempt to put lipstick on the pig that is Trump University: “There is ZERO fraud. There are dozens of satisfied Trump University graduates.” [Read More…]

“If claiming a qualified, vetted judge shouldn’t be able to do his job because of his race and ethnicity isn’t racist…”

…then what the hell is?” What Fr. Peter West, Priests for Life, the Susan B. Anthony List, Paul Ryan, Rick Santorum, Mike Huckabee, Ben Carson, Chris Christie, and an increasing number of number of “prolife” leaders now stand for. It is this filth, not the unborn, they will henceforth be committed to defending. So much [Read More…]

And now Obama condemns the anti-Trump violence

Details here. When Trump’s followers have, on numerous occasions, gotten violent, Trump has *repeatedly* excused and even egged on the violence When the Left get violent, its leaders have condemned the violence. This is why the braindead and intellectually bankrupt Tu Quoque strategy of the Right is breaking down. The Right cannot forever keep repeating [Read More…]

Just got a call from Students for Life

Told them I’d be delighted to donate to them and specifically asked that it be made known to whoever is running the show there that I am busting my buttons with pride at them refusing to whore themselves out to Donald Trump, unlike so many other “prolife” leaders and organizations.  If you’d like to donate [Read More…]

Today on Connecting the Dots

We’ll be discussing the fact that a number of people are saying that images like this… promote violence against women. I don’t buy this. It’s an action/adventure movie in which the entire premise is built around a villain inflicting violence and heroes (of which Jennifer Lawrence’s Mystique is the strongest and most competent leader) fighting back. Of *course* [Read More…]

How to Get Trump Elected

Trump supporters attacked with eggs, bottles, punches after rally. Evil and stupid.  And the surest way in the world to garner support for Trump.  I don’t care how much you oppose him and his dangerous base of racist misogynists and mammon worshippers.  This is not the way to fight what they stand for.  It’s the [Read More…]
