... Something totally expected happened when I decided to ask fellow Patheos bloggers at the Muslim channel their thoughts of the atrocities being committed in the name of their religion.I got backlash.But not from who you'd think.Turns out most of the bloggers on the Muslim channel just don't write as prolifically as we do here in the Catholic channel. They have entire weeks between posts. We have hours; a single day at most.So the chances of anyone over there even seeing … [Read more...]

the unspoken truth of islam…

... if islam is such a "religion of peace" then why the hell is our president, liberal politicians, and the media so afraid to offend moslems? I think tip toeing around moslems delicate sensibilities sends a very clear message... they don't even believe their own bull shit. Some how I would have thought a terrorist infiltrating a military base on our own soil would have elicited more reaction and condemnation... not limp wristed hand wringing over the possibility of sacrificing our military's … [Read more...]

What exactly does the "I" in "ISIL" stand for then?The Islamic States is just that, Islamic. ISIL has all the trademarks of the past 1300 years of post-Mohammedan culture - Piracy, theft, … [Read more...]

... I wish I could write but everything I read online and see on the news has me filled with anger, rage, and helplessness. It leaves me depressed and makes me feel like my complaints are trivial and my joys undeserved.I am in mourning.What's there to do other than pray and helplessly watch the news reports come in?Elizabeth Scalia is right, you know. The West lacks the tools to defeat ISIS because ISIS is evil and the West refuses to believe in evil. You cannot defeat something … [Read more...]
