What the Most Interesting Man In the World Says…

Amen. That is all (H/T Southern Fried Catholicism).

Because Jesus Said Plenty About Marriage, and Other Inconvenient Stuff Too…UPDATED

Hey y’all. Didn’t you know that Jesus didn’t say nothin about homosexuality in the Bible? True story. You ain’t gonna find Our Lord say that particular word nowheres in the Scriptures. It’s like he never heard of that situation. Heck, everbody knows that if Jesus didn’t say it, it don’t exist. Right? Just ask Stephen Colbert.

Of course, Jesus said plenty about marriage, and I’m here to tell y’all, it’s damned inconvenient to the spirit of the age nowadays. [Read more...]

There Are Zombies (For Reals!), and They are Ants…

The photograph above is creepy, ain’t it? But seeing as how the researchers don’t say that these fellows are cannibalistic, ant-eating zombie ants, I think I can still sleep well tonight. Because, as you well know by now, Catholics dig science. NPR (yep, those publicly funded, corporate sponsored, vagabonds) ) have the story.

Proof Texting A Comment Policy? I’m All For That

The folks over at Sojourners don’t have a comment policy. They have gone one better and have adopted a Comment Covenant instead. And the neat thing is that they have also provided the Biblical passages to back up their reasoning.

It’s a clearcut case of faith+reason= AWESOME. Take a look, [Read more...]

Between the Scylla and Charybdis and Apocalypse Now

If you are a Catholic News junkie, coming to the internet everyday for your fix of “inside baseball” goings on, here’s a little tidbit: you will be as misinformed as all news junkies everywhere always are.  Bread and Circuses? Welcome to the show. [Read more...]

Spambots Love Me, This I Know

I received the  following comment on the post, A Letter to the President That Explains His Drop in the Polls, A Film, and A Song. I have no idea why. A random act of weirdness that has become commonplace of late. [Read more...]

A liberal, moderate and conservative walk into a bar…

The bartender says, “Hi your Eminence!”

Get it? I don’t know if it’s funny, but it sure is true (and Catholic with a capital “C”).

Now that is the New Evangelization in action, Catholic style. Do they still put olives in martinis made with white chocolate almond flavored vodka? Next, read the following question. [Read more...]

Brides-to-Be and the Blindness of Vanity

Nassim Nicholas Taleb, author of the books Fooled By Randomness and The Black Swan, once said the following about fasting:

The reason fasting in its various forms is not practiced as the best medicine is because industry has not (yet) managed to make a profit from it. Try to generalize this very, very simple point to other substractive treatments and you will understand what we got ourselves into with modernity.

You’re about to be proved wrong, Taleb. [Read more...]

Contraception, the Billionaire’s Wife, Toking Cathechists, and Teletubbies…

Thomas L. MacDonald, one of my newest Patheos Catholic portal classmates, brings all of the above together in the tragicomic opera that is the the unmoored modern Catholic. I say unmoored, but that word assumes someone was on a ship in the first place. Perhaps “born in captivity” would be a better description. [Read more...]
