Muslim Moonwalks on High Altar

Found at Patrick Madrid's place, via New Advent. Madrid writes:Here's an outrageous story that will likely go unnoticed and unreported by the media. Try to imagine what would happen if a Christian were to perform this same moronic dance in crowded mosque. Do you think he'd leave the building alive? I don't know if this Muslim is deranged or just maliciously trying to insult and provoke Catholics, but either way, he's a jackass, and I hope he's prosecuted for this. May God forgive him.Well, … [Read more...]

Shahzad's grudge is recent? – UPDATED

The mainstream media has presented us with a plethora of possible motives behind Faisal Shahzad's attempted bombing in Times Square. We have read that he was a victim of the (Bush) economy, whose house was foreclosed on! In 2004, he is said to have remarked that he hated Bush (hardly a remarkable opinion) and the Iraqi war! He didn't like the drone attacks!But now it seems that Shahzad's has been a recent turning of a worm.If you stay with this story, you find, 13 paragraphs into it:Any … [Read more...]

The "God gap" in realpolitik

A study in Chicago comes to an interesting conclusion:American foreign policy is handicapped by a narrow, ill-informed and "uncompromising Western secularism" that feeds religious extremism, threatens traditional cultures and fails to encourage religious groups that promote peace and human rights, according to a two-year study by the Chicago Council on Global Affairs.The council's 32-member task force, which included former government officials and scholars representing all major faiths, … [Read more...]

Lolcat Obama & Mustache: Hussein-alicious!

Barack Obama; Dreams of his MustacheBarack Obama continues to slowly reveal himself to the people he has been elected to serve.He told us something about himself when he put the murder of an abortionist over the murder of one of his soldiers. The death of the abortionist was immediately condemned with a security deployment ordered. It took days upon days for the death of his soldier, at the hands of a convert-to-Islam intent on mayhem, to be acknowledged with the release of a woefully … [Read more...]

Saintly Relics, Babylon & Nimrod

As a Benedictine Oblate, it was with great joy that I read this article on the discovery of ancient relics, including one of our Holy Father, St. Benedict:The new medieval gallery at the British Museum is full of beautiful images of saints in ivory, stone, gold and wood - but invisible to visitors, it also holds the bones of 39 real saints, whose discovery came as a shock to their curator.The relics, packed in tiny bundles of cloth including one scrap of fabric over 1,000 years old, were … [Read more...]

Yep, I miss Bush – UPDATED

And if that annoys anyone, that's too bad.Seems increasingly like all the "Fascist Bush" caterwauling was the usual fake, dishonest theater meant as a means to an end - the end being to destroy the hated "election stealer" and his legacy, and not much more.But you know, for someone who "did everything wrong," his policies suddenly seem wise and right to some surprising people.It's easy to campaign and criticize. It's much more difficult to govern, especially knowing that if you don't keep … [Read more...]

Obama: Yeah, Iraq war caused the hate…

Lots of people writing about Obama's interview with al-Arabiya. Some are angry that he gave his first presidential interview to a news agency outside of the US. I don't care much about that - the man's entitled to speak to whomever he wants - but some of Obama's answers seem to me just a bit disoriented or perhaps I should say purposely disorienting.Obama does not come out and say it, he merely agrees with the dishonest framing by his interviewer - video and partial transcript here:AL … [Read more...]

Bush was right. Victorious, too – UPDATED

I'm still trying to keep to my new pledge of only writing about politics when it intersects with religion, but it does seem only fair to note that, Old Europe, which has been struggling all along with its restrictions, has finally admitted that, President Bush was right to keep America out of the Kyoto treaty.That's all I'm going to say. Bush was right. Lots of numbers simply should not be trusted enough to build policy on them.And he also was effective on the environment in ways you never … [Read more...]

Delicious sarcasm

Said it before and I'll say it again: I wish I had Glenn Reynolds' economy of words. … [Read more...]

Obama, Jews & Newsweek: the MSNBC of mags

In the National Review today, Mark Hemingway looks at what he calls Newsweek's "absolutely Herculean feat of water-carrying" for Barack Obama:...before tackling the factual problems, the article’s biggest problem needs to be addressed — Newsweek aids and abets the Obama campaign’s decision to slander Joe Lieberman:In a brief but animated Senate floor confrontation last week, according to a campaign aide who asked for anonymity when talking about private discussions, Obama told Lieberman h … [Read more...]
