Conor Friedersdorf: Why I Refuse to Vote for Barack Obama

I don’t spend too much time trying to persuade my readers not to do something they will never do.  However, if you are that rare bird, the Shea reader who seriously is considering voting for Obama, consider the undeniable fact that you are insane and should vote for somebody else and never, under any circumstance, [Read More...]

Our Orwellian God King

…presiding over an HHS mandate where “choice” means forcing Catholics to pay for sterilizing minors and inflicting draconian punishments if they refuse. If you are Catholic and voting for this tyrant, may I ask “What happened to your soul?  How do square this with all that blather you emit about ‘conscience’ and ‘freedom’ every time [Read More...]

Notes from a Fascist Country

A reader writes: One critical error people make in contemplating fascism is to believe that fascism is about ideas, dogmas, or programmatic solutions to human problems. Fascism is none of those things. First and above all, fascism is a belief in the state as the supreme human achievement. Or, as the Party recently said, the [Read More...]

No. Really. Obama’s Actions Make Him an Enemy of God

He has declared war on the conscience of Catholics in a gratuitous and wholly unnecessary attempt to punish them for their views on sex and smash their religious liberty in order to subordinate it to the state.  He has (at the convention) done as much as the head of a non-confessional state can do to [Read More...]

Those who believe everything is about economics…

First of the Stations of the Double Cross Erected

The First Station of the Double Cross: The God King Kisses his Divine Consort We adore you O Dear Leader and bless you, because by your Unholy Power, you have given us contraceptives, abortion, and gay marriage and forced the Catholics to pay for them. Other planned liturgical pilgrimage sites include The God King Stops [Read More...]

As I say, Obama’s Going to Lose

Feel the enthusiasm. That’s nothing but good news since he is an enemy of the Church and of human life, as well as a tyrant. The only down side is that his opponent will win. Who knows! He might even eliminate the HHS mandate (unless the enormous popularity of free contraceptive candy moves his weathervane-like [Read More...]

I’m starting to think Obama is really afraid

When the Onion is lampooning the truly desperately sleazy attack ads that Obama is quite obviously behind, it means Obama is in serious trouble.  Obama was elected by a volatile combination of people sick of Bush and leftist messianic zealots ready to worship him with the looniest of inflated expectations (“Black Jesus” Spike Lee described [Read More...]
