Taylor Marshall, Sane and Happy Traditionalist, to the Urine and Vinegar Wing of Traditionalism

For the love of God, shut up and try being happy for a change. With people like him, Fr. Z, and Kevin Tierney assuming more prominent roles in the Traditionalist blogosphere, I am hopeful that the loud and bitter crazies will finally go into eclipse. I’m happy to see that they are refusing to allow [Read More...]

Rod Dreher’s Confusing Ecclesiology

I like Rod. Always have. But I have never understood his baffling and completely inconsistent ecclesiology. He left the Catholic communion for Orthodoxy, having come to conclusion that the claims of the papacy were false and in sharp reaction to the priest abuse scandals.

John C. Wright is Endlessly Interesting

Here he is, introducting the idea of argumentroids by means of discussing scientifroids: I have always held that Science Fiction was never actually fiction stories about science. Instead, it is stories about fictional science. Writers routinely commended for the “hardness” of their hard SF, that is to say, commended for their realism, such as Larry [Read More...]

The Case for an African Pontiff

…according to Fr. Dwight Longenecker. I sort of regard speculation about papal elections the way I do talking about the weather. My views will have no impact whatsoever on the outcome and it’s basically all up to the Holy Spirit. I can give God input via my prayers, I s’pose. But mostly those are of [Read More...]
