Ann Coulter Erupts in Know Nothingism

Tweets: I’m an American and this is why our founders (not “immigrants”!) distrusted Catholics & wouldn’t make them citizens. The Right is really losing its marbles over this Pope (and, as Coulter makes clear, over the Catholic faith itself). Good.  It’s healthy for Catholics to be reminded that the Kingdom of Heaven is not the [Read More…]

Pope Francis is not a “Progressive”…

He’s a priest. An intelligent look at Francis from the Atlantic. If you are baffled by Francis because you have been trained to reflexively analyze all things through an American culture war and political lens, throw away the lens and memorize these words: they explain virtually everything you need to know about this pope and [Read More…]

Interesting Piece on Francis and Pius XII

Here: “On an even more sensitive front, Francis has tipped his hand with a strong defense of the debated record of Pope Pius XII…”–good to see an article on this subject get that right, along with encouraging words about the strengthening of Jewish-Catholic relations–Francis has made at least a half a dozen statements praising Pius [Read More…]

The White House is More Afraid of Offending China

…than the Pope. It’s easy to bravely face the applause of your peers on cheap social hot button issues they all agree with you about–especially when that butt of your disrespect is the disciple of a Messiah who says to turn the other cheek–than it is to treat the leader of a giant power with [Read More…]
