The Bada-bing, Bada-boom Nursing Center

badabing

Many years ago, when we were only a few years married, my husband and I joined friends at a local club, for a New Year's Eve celebration. As the night progressed, we discovered that part of the entertainment included a young woman performing a strip-tease, down to her g-string and miniscule pasties, which she proceeded to set "fire" to, as she vacated the room.Perhaps it is because of my childhood history, but I have never been comfortable around such displays, which always strike me as … [Read more...]

Sorry, *Gay or Straight Friends in Rome*, this is just Rude

church lady

Wait, let me get my eyeroll over with, in anticipation of all the people who, knowing nothing about me, will nevertheless descend on this blog screaming "homophobe."Now that that's out of the way, Huffpo Religion did one of their attention-getting tweets about big, bad old Catholicism: LOOK: The photos of gays and lesbians kissing in church that the Vatican doesn't want you to seeAnd then the breathless:Despite Pope Francis' earlier remarks about opening up the Church, the … [Read more...]

MSM Holds Its Freedom Cheap; Ours, Too

(Neveshkin Nikolay / Shutterstock.com)My column at First Things this week chronicles the almost surreal behavior of the mainstream media as they do whatever they can to propel Obama and their preferred narrative forward.When the State Department threatened to go into a bureaucratic swoon of Judy-Garlandesque proportions if forced to answer questions about the attack, the press offered a thoughtful cold compress to soothe its frazzled brow, and then closed the door softly, as it made its … [Read more...]

A Female Frathouse at DHS? I Believe!

I expect this story will go down the media memory hole very quickly, but I have to say, this female frat-house business rings true for me: Soon after Schriro and Barr were hired in January 2009, male staffers were treated like lapdogs, Hayes claims.Barr “moved the entire contents of the offices of three employees, including name plates, computers and telephones, to the men’s bathroom at ICE headquarters,” the suit says.Barr also stole a male staffer’s BlackBerry and fired off a message t … [Read more...]

Sacred Sex: is a Doorway to the Eternal

The Kiss

Tim Muldoon winds up his five-part series on the "McDonaldsization of Sex" with some splendid theology:Here's God's proposal: "if you choose to enter into a lifelong relationship with a person of the opposite sex, and choose to love that person in every moment of every day for the rest of your life, you'll come to know who I am and how I love the people I've created. It will demand all of you; it will demand sacrifice and conversion and transformation. It will demand forfeiting all your … [Read more...]

Obama’s 8.1% Funhouse Mirror!

LFP Rate_0

Do you know anyone who has been seeking work in the last several months, and has suddenly found openings?Since hardly any jobs were added to the economy in April, your answer is probably "no." I know mine is.And yet, the headlines are blaring that unemployment is down to 8.1%!So, no jobs to speak of are being added, in fact -- as Ed Morrissey notes here, our total employment level actually fell by 169K -- and yet the unemployment numbers sound encouraging!Welcome to the … [Read more...]

Springsteen, Sex Strikes and Shut Up, Stupids!

Lips-That-Touch-Liquor-Shall-Not-Touch-Ours

I have doctors appointments all afternoon, so let's just do a quick lookaround:Springsteen's Phoniness finally clear: I've never bought his "working man" schtick, and his mot recent "big" songs have been lazy three-note drone-fests (Philadelphia, Secret Garden). Now the botoxed, hair-weaved, fake "everyman" who summers in the Hamptons (where his children showcase their equestrianism) is writing some pretty irresponsible lyrics that appear to advocate violence against the fatcats and bankers … [Read more...]

PP on Komen Debacle: “A learning opportunity”

Jackboot

Charlotte Hays writes at the Register that the Komen decision was about a Planned Parenthood shakedown:“What happened this week was nothing short of a mafia shakedown by Planned Parenthood of the Komen Foundation,” said Austin Ruse, president of the Catholic Family and Human Rights Institute, a New York and Washington, D.C.-based research association that works exclusively on international social policy. “Planned Parenthood’s message was: ‘Give us money or we will shut down your organizat … [Read more...]

Can a Standing O Shake a Worldview? UPDATED

MSMReporters1-300x204

If you did not see the standing ovation given Newt Gingrich when went "smackdown" on John King during last night's debate, here it is:I came to the debate a few minutes late so I didn't see it live. At the end of the debate, when CNN replayed "highlights" the standing-O wasn't included (it certainly seemed like a "highlight" whether one liked it or not), so I only became aware of it thanks to the internet, and social media.This morning I got an email from a friend who scours the … [Read more...]

Tebow on ABC This Week & Focus on Family Msg

After watching George Stephanopoulos do a less-than-stellar job of reining in his disdain during the recent ABC GOP debate (although at this point, I'm not exactly offended by hearing the contenders referred to as "characters") it doesn't surprise me at all to read that his Sunday morning show, This Morning, couldn't resist taking some "good-natured" potshots at their Evangelical viewers by digging on the Bronco's loss on Saturday. Writes Josh Feldman at Mediaite:Have we not reached a place … [Read more...]
