And I mean incredible in the following sense of the word.

Unbelievable, beyond belief, hard to believe, unconvincing, far-fetched, implausible, improbable, highly unlikely, dubious, doubtful, etc.

Here’s a snippet of Phil’s editorial over at Catholic Culture. [Read more...]

An Alabama Ministry Uses A Quote From Hitler On Their Billboard?

Not photoshopped?! Oh my. Nice placement, though, beween Old Glory and a McDonald’s.

Now why didn’t we think of that?*

A billboard at the Village Mall in Auburn, Ala., features five smiling kids beneath a quote from Adolf Hitler: “He alone, who owns the youth, gains the future.” [Read more...]

On Hamlet, Our Sins, And The Man In The Mirror UPDATED

I was going to write a long and involved post on the little news item that we would surely love to sweep under the carpet. The news out of Ireland about our failure to uphold Jesus’s new commandment. The commandment that, if we follow it, will prove to the world our name and heritage.

But the French guy, Pascal-Emmanuel Gobry, aka “PEG”, wrote, “Look At Your Sin” in my stead. Read it, post haste. [Read more...]

Quote of the Week: Christopher Nolan

 

From The Dark Knight Rises website,

Speaking on behalf of the cast and crew of The Dark Knight Rises, I would like to express our profound sorrow at the senseless tragedy that has befallen the entire Aurora community. I would not presume to know anything about the victims of the shooting but that they were there last night to watch a movie. I believe movies are one of the great American art forms and the shared experience of watching a story unfold on the screen is an important  and joyful pastime. The movie theater is my home, and the idea that someone would violate that innocent and hopeful place in such an unbearably savage way is devastating to me. Nothing any of us can say could ever adequately express our feelings for the innocent victims of this appalling crime, but our thoughts are with them and their families. —Christopher Nolan

And our prayers are with them too.

A Contrarian Way To Invest Like A Catholic

See what I discovered: God made man simple, but they get lost in their many thoughts.—Ecclesiastes 7:29

Just in time for the year-end wrap ups, I saw an article the other day over at Our Sunday Visitor about Investing with a Clear Conscience (and earlier this year over at Crisis Magazine was a similar one called How to Invest Like A Catholic, to which this post was initially addressed). Being a former stock broker, one who let my Series 7 License (and all the rest of my assorted licenses) lapse as soon as I left that field (1995!), Joe Six-Pack, USMC knows a little bit about investing. So reading the articles, to me it sounds more like “How to be neurotic about investing, like a Catholic.”

As if there weren’t enough things to get ulcers about. [Read more...]
