Not What Our Manufacturers of Culture Meant When They Taught Kids to Parrot “Question Authority”

Student Fights the Power: A South Carolina valedictorian garnered wild applause after he ripped up his pre-approved speech and delivered the Lord’s prayer at his high school graduation on Saturday.

Strange Notions is On the Air

The Indomitable Brandon Vogt writes: StrangeNotions.com is designed to be the central place of dialogue between Catholics and atheists. The implicit goal is to bring non-Catholics to faith, especially followers of the so-called New Atheism. As a ‘digital Areopagus’, the site includes intelligent articles, compelling video, and rich discussion throughout its comment boxes. Watch the video trailer: Strange Notions [Read More…]

A Reader Asks About Arguing with Atheism

ET and the Faith

No. Not Entertainment Tonight. ET. The Extraterrestrial. You know. Vulcans. Klingons. Horrible mucusy blobs and Platonic demigods of enlightenment. Squamous fungoid and rugose eldritch horrors who lie dreaming and awaiting their chance to drive mankind insane in a hideous dark apocalypse.
