Yet Another Hideous Spectacle

…of bureaucratic butt-covering, incompetence, and failure to deal with an obviously predatory priest. It will be interesting to see if the civil authority puts more than the priest in jail.  I’m all for jailing whoever the civil authority finds  guilty of criminal acts, up to and including the bishop if the evidence is there.  I’m [Read More…]

The Infallible Faithful Conservative Catholic Anti-Charism of Discernment Marches On!

From the subculture that learned nothing from Maciel, circled the wagons for Euteneuer, backed unjust war and torture more ardently than the average American, defended Ayn Rand as Aristotle Redivivus, seriously believed that Romney was a Changed Man about abortion and somebody who cared about the HHS Mandate, attacked the bishop who investigated Corapi as a “satanic” [Read More…]

What is the *matter* with this guy?

How, at this late date, can a bishop still be such an utter, utter numbskull? Newark Abp Myers allows priest who *admitted* groping boy to continue working with children What baffles me is the sheer gratuitous, wilful, reckless, irresponsibly wicked stupidity of this stuff. 30 years ago, when the Smart People were saying that second chances and [Read More…]

Another Aussie Contrarian, and an Atheist to Boot…

on the strange freedom the media feel in just making crap up if it’s useful for bashing the Church. The truth is bad enough. Why lie about it? Unless, of course, you are simply an unscrupulous liar.
