The Atlantic has a piece calling for Chesterton’s canonization

Anything that starts this way: If the Catholic Church makes G. K. Chesterton a saint—as an influential group of Catholics is proposing it should—the story of his enormous coffin may become rather significant. Symbolic, even parabolic. Chesterton’s coffin was too huge, you see, to be carried down the stairs of his house in Beaconsfield, its occupant [Read More...]

Shouting “Fatso!” is a curiously favored tactic of two classes of people in my experience: Reactionaries and schoolyard children.  I don’t know why somebody would use it to try to stop the no-brainer belief that [Read More...]

First Things Indulges in a Little Gratuitous Chesterton Bashing

…in a piece that takes various Chesterton quotations that generally preserve quite a lot of common sense and then subjects them to flat-footed heckling for no particular reason other than being contrarian and jerkish. Much of the heckling works if you are into that sort of thing, sort of like a 13 year old’s heckling [Read More...]

Reflecting on Last Week

I’ve been pondering last week and trying to understand the reactions to my remarks about Perry Lorenzo, as well as the curious disconnects between me and some readers (and several strangers) have sort of fractalled off into space.

Canonization of St. Edward Kennedy Completed in Record Time

I’m quite willing to pray for the guy. I certainly hope he found mercy. But I’m basically with Mark Brumley when it comes to the absurd de facto canonization of the Edward Kennedy. “Santo Subito” is one thing when it comes to the cry of the global Church at the funeral of JPII. It’s rather [Read More...]
