FLASH! Cardinal Mahony is actually horse meat

Conclave-Bingo

Simcha Fisher's greatest fan suggested rerunning this piece for Throwback Thursday. This post ran in March of 2013, during the Papal Conclave, back when things were stupid. I had forgotten all about the "Pope will be arrested if he leaves Vatican" rumor! Enjoy this glimpse into all that we have left behind, before this year's stupidity train has a chance to gather steam. *** Catholic Memes has a nice summation of the stupid things the secular media just can't stop saying:This feeding … [Read more...]

At Synod, Sex-Obsessed Catholic Church Finally Talks About Sex, Finally

Try this one weird trick for ending the war on women

You know what would cut through 99% of this crap, where we find ourselves arguing about whether or not saying, "Yes, I want to have sex with you" counts as sufficient consent, and whether or not "bystander intervention training" is sexist, and who's waging a war on whom, and who's winning?  Try following this simple rule: If you are not married, assume there is never consent; and if you are married, treat your spouse like a person, not a thing. I know I know I know. I know all the things, … [Read more...]
