If he was anything like me, he was probably a big time sinner. So I said a prayer for his soul, and the souls of everyone else who have passed on to eternity with him today. [Read more...]

Joe Six-Pack Unpacks Pope Francis’s Interview (Part I) UPDATED

Pope Francis knows who really pays our bills…

“I do not know what might be the most fitting description….I am a sinner. This is the most accurate definition. It is not a figure of speech, a literary genre. I am a sinner.”

Pope Francis’s candid answer to the first question of the interview read ’round the world set the tone for all that would follow. [Read more...]

Worth a thousand words. Photo credit: Angela Wylie

PSA: Charlie Rose Interviews Syrian President Assad on PBS Tonight, 9PM Eastern

I don’t normally tune in to Charlie Rose on PBS, but seeings how tonight’s guest is Bashar al-Assad, I will be. Tune in, as it should be an interesting conversation. Hopefully my local PBS station will be carrying it, but you never know.

I want to get a look at the bad guy, and here what he has to say to Charlie. Lord knows I’ve heard about as much about the Syrian Free Army as I can stand. Did you hear what the rebels did to several of the ancient and beautiful churches in the city of Maloula, about 45 minutes north of Damascus?

Just one more reason not to support military action in Syria.

Locals protesting outside the Federal Courthouse today…
