Sherry Weddell’s Follow-up Remarks on the Pew Study Results

All I can say is “Amen and Amen”: I have spent years listening to Catholics talk hopefully (or gleefully!) of certain groups of Catholics – whose theological or liturgical leanings they fear and despise – leaving the Church. Now, in light of the release yesterday of the grim Pew statistics, I am being asked by [Read More...]

…one of the world’s leading C.S. Lewis scholars, who recently converted to Catholicism. His latest book, “Planet Narnia”, has rocked the Lewis world with new insights into the structure and meaning of “The Chronicles of Narnia”. [Read more...]

C.S. Lewis Also Died November 22, 1963

My hope is that much that he describes so wonderfully in his last Screwtape letter is what he experienced within moments of his last heartbeat: MY DEAR, MY VERY DEAR, WORMWOOD, MY POPPET, MY PIGSNIE, How mistakenly now that all is lost you come whimpering to ask me whether the terms of affection in which [Read More...]

On One’s Reaction to George Zimmerman….

…saving people from a burning car. C.S. Lewis has a comment for all those bitterly disappointed that George Zimmerman did a good thing and who search for a stupid conspiracy theory to explain it: Suppose one reads a story of filthy atrocities in the paper. Then suppose that something turns up suggesting that the story [Read More...]

Tolkien vs. Lewis on Marriage

This piece is fascinating for a couple of reasons. First, it shows Tolkien in fine fettle taking apart a real lapse in Lewis’ normally clear thinking (and, I suspect, a lapse due to the fundamental DNA coding error in Anglicanism traceable back to Henry VIII). But second, and just as importantly, it is written by [Read More...]

Obama, C.S. Lewis and The Boy Who Cried Wolf

As should be obvious, I have a number of very grave concerns about the Obama Administration.  Allow me to enumerate them: 1. Its absolute and total love affair with abortion, up to and including support for murdering children who have already been born.  In this, it expresses the sole non-negotiable core value of the Dem [Read More...]

Chechen Losers Responsible for Bombing

One’s dead, one on the lam.  I bet they have him in custody (hopefully alive) by sundown.  Nobody knows why they did it yet.  I wish people would stop filling in the blanks with their favorite bogey men.  Yesterday, for no reason, people were attributing it to “prolife extremists”.  Others were sure it was white [Read More...]
