Karl Keating on the Latest Insanity Emerging from the Greatest Catholics of All Time

He writes: “THAT WAY MADNESS LIES” — King Lear In the current issue of “The Remnant” there is another article that never should have seen print. It is an article that will lead many readers into confusion and may lead some right out of the Church. And it’s an article that suggests that “The Remnant” [Read More...]

Francis on Iraq

Here’s the full text. Particularly interesting is his defusing of the “Pope calls for war!” narrative that was getting some play last week: Q. You know that recently the U.S. forces have started bombing the terrorists in Iraq, to prevent a genocide, to protect minorities, including Catholics who are under your guidance. My question is [Read More...]

Catholic.org runs false headline claiming Francis has issued call to arms in Iraq

This headline is dangerously and recklessly false: Pope Francis calls for ARMED RESPONSE to defend Christians from Genocide – Middle East -… No. He has not: Vatican spokesman Fr. Federico Lombardi, S.J., said that Pope Francis “urgently calls on the international community to protect all those affected by the violence and to guarantee all necessary assistance [Read More...]

Apparently the End is Beginning Again

Francis is, according to kooks and reactionaries, just the worst.  I thought the End was beginning at the Assisi conference in 1987. Or when refugee Jews prayed in the Vatican when Pius XII sheltered them. Or when the pope failed to heed the Reformers. Or when this or that or the other Chicken Little declared [Read More...]

Pope Sort of, but not really, Condemns Marijuana Legalization

Evidently, “Peter” means “Rock” and not “Stoner”. Ah me!  I slay me. Actually, we discover that he really didn’t say anything about legalizing pot, but a) all politics is local so the article assumes he must really be talking about American Baby Boomers because what else matters? and b) I can’t resist a bad joke.
