When You Hit Bottom, Don’t Keep Digging

Eliana Johnson explains why it was stroke of genius to attack Obama for calling the Holocaust “senseless violence” and announces that her critics only bear out her opinion of her own brilliance. Here, let me help.  I don’t think Johnson really set out to defend the Nazis.  She’s on record, after all, as mocking Holocaust [Read More...]

Very Refreshing

Good to see some discernment being exercised. Ironically, the author, who is basically a Latin Mass Traditionalist, is getting savaged as a Damn Librul[TM] in some quarters (notably on Facebook) for pointing out the very serious dangers of this demagoguery, which pretty much illustrates what I’m talking about in terms of lack of discernment on the [Read More...]

I love Dale Price

I’ve loved him for years. Clear-headed. True as a bell. Hilariously funny. A gifted writer who should really give up this whole lawyer gig and become a writer because the world needs him and, I’m guessing, appears to him in dreams in the form of a woman in rags begging him to come and rescue [Read More...]

Erin Manning Makes a Good Point

When a Catholic school punishes a teacher for being pregnant out of wedlock by firing her, three things are communicated: 1) The Church doesn’t really believe all that mercy stuff; 2) The Church doesn’t really believe in supporting women in crisis pregnancies and they might as well abort for all we care; 3) What matters [Read More...]

Ideologues see diagrams, not human beings

Kevin O’Brien writes: On a recent blog post, I said, “The economy was made for man, not man for the economy.” Reader Manny replied, “The economy is not made for man … If you find it flawed, then fix mankind.” Virtually every monstrous evil inflicted on the human race in the past century was committed [Read More...]

New blog!

Reader Scott Alt writes: Since I’m seeing others do so, I thought I’d drop you a line to shamelessly plug my own new blog. I recently converted to the Catholic Church from Protestantism (in 2011). The blog is called Logos & Muse–I blog about apologetics, broadly conceived to include both logical defense of Catholic teachings, [Read More...]
