When Spring Came, I Cut My Fig Tree Down. Then, God Took Over…

Celeste-Fig-2010

In the year of Our Lord, 2010…

A couple of years back, I shared a post here about my love of figs and how my experience with a fig tree kinda, sorta, mirrored the parable found in Luke’s gospel. Remember it? Good times.

Two seasons later, in May of this year, I had to cut it down. [Read more...]

Source of Global Climate Change Found (And It Almost Killed Us All)!

The New York Post, and a few other news outlets, are now running the story that the solar flare that occurred in July 2012 (pictured below) almost took us back to the Stone Age. Maybe it would have, maybe it wouldn’t have. Either way, what I said  on September 17, 2012 still applies.

It turns out the film makers duped a number of folks into being “interviewed,” or otherwise associated  with  the project. Narrator Kate Mulgrew, for instance. Today she took to social media to say she was, “a voice for hire, and a misinformed one.” Hehmant Mehta, The Friendly Atheist,  has the gouge.

“I understand there has been some controversy about my participation in a documentary called THE PRINCIPLE. Let me assure everyone that I completely agree with the eminent physicist Lawrence Krauss, who was himself misrepresented in the film, and who has written a succinct rebuttal in SLATE.  [Read more...]

Yesterday, I shared a few of Audrey Assad’s thoughts on the Duck Dynasty imbroglio. Calm, level-headed, in accordance with the longstanding teachings of the Catholic Church, etc.

A few days prior, some of you may have read Austin Ruse’s article at Crisis on The Rise of the New Homophiles. If that title made you think of the recent Planet of the Apes film with a similar title, you’re not alone. [Read more...]

Helen Alvaré Speaks Her Mind On The HHS Mandate

A few days before Thanksgiving, the Supreme Court decided to hear arguments in a couple of cases regarding religious liberty and the HHS Mandate. The biggest surprise to me was how this news garnered scant attention.

In an effort to move that needle a bit, Helen Alvaré has a piece up in USA Today entitled, Obamacare attacks religion, but hurts women. Take a look, [Read more...]
