The Attacks in Libya and Egypt: A Muslim Perspective and More UPDATED

Image credit: AP

Brave words from a brave woman who happens to be my blog neighbor from the Muslim Channel. Here name is Nancy Shehata, and thanks be to God, hear her roar,

Yesterday, U.S. Ambassador to Libya J. Christopher Stevens and three of his staff were killed by RPG fire as they tried to leave their embassy.  The crowd outside the embassy there, and another unruly mob outside the U.S. Embassy in Cairo, were puffed up into a froth by a video, a stupid, useless, anti-Islamic video that had been posted to youtube by fools.  Fools directed by fools.  Someone, some Muslim, some person or people claiming to follow the same religion as I do, fired a rocket into the car to kill a man who had absolutely nothing to do with the video and who would have himself soundly condemned it, had he had the chance.

The HHS Mandate and the Clinton Years…UPDATED

Proof abounds that the Democratic Party nowadays is not your father’s (or your grandfather’s) Democratic Party. If a picture is worth a thousand words, here’s one that has eighty-two bonus words to boot.

Whoa, Frank. That letter was penned pre-World War Two, brother. Everyone with a brain knows that things are vastly different nowadays. Deacon Greg was just posting something about God and the Democrats, as did Catholic Vote. So what does any of this have to do with the Clintons and the HHS Mandate? [Read more...]

Mark Shea on Why We May Fight the HHS Mandate…

A reader asked Mark how the HHS Mandate is any different than paying our taxes and watching the government waste them on all kinds of things Catholics may find unjust and wasteful. They wondered how the HHS Mandate is any different from this. Mark’s reply clears things up for those who are still sitting on the sidelines. [Read more...]

Marc Barnes is like Ted Williams Hitting .400

And just as fun to watch. Take for instance this post he wrote yesterday, which has gone as viral as the Spanish Influenza, being seen by close to 37,000 people in a little more than 24 hours. Like Ted drinking a bottle of Moxie, Marc wades right in.

Oh dear. Matthew Inman of the marvelous web-comic, The Oatmeal, seems to have experienced that exquisite twitch all modern atheists are doomed to experience — the I-know-what’s-best-for-you-silly-religious-people-come-heed-me spasm. This particular train of thought requires the thinker ignore the vast majority of Christian belief — which is entrenched in reason — and focus solely on minority caricatures of the creationist or the wailing-out evangelical, caricatures firmly established and grounded in The Holy Internet Worldview. Having thus defined the term “religion”, the moral high ground is taken, the sneers are unleashed, and all religious people fear and tremble, for atheism has demonstrated itself as supremely reasonable, authoritative, scientific, and gosh-darnit it’s a wonder everyone just doesn’t convert on the spot. Check it out. [Read more...]

Want To Be In A Movie? Casting Call!

Urakami Cathedral, 500 meters from Ground Zero.

What am I talking about? The film by Ian and Dominic Higgins, that’s what. You remember the one? It’s called All That Remains, and it’s the amazing story of Takashi Nagai, and how he responded to the bombing of his beloved city, Nagasaki.

Here’s a little message Nigel Martin Davey, one of my Co-Producers (a real one, not an honorary one like me) put out recently if you are interested. [Read more...]

About Catholic Relief Services, Brandon Vogt reminds us…

that while “the good” isn’t “the perfect”  (in the midst of a fallen world), that doesn’t mean it’s the embodiment of all evil either. Nor does that make it the aider and abettor of evil anymore than the Church is as a whole.

What follows is from his post entitled Compassion vs. CARE: A Defense of Catholic Relief Services.

Because Life Goes On, And Is Worth Living UPDATED

Acts of terror, senseless violence, wars, rumors of wars, budget crises, scary headlines, scandal, political vitriol, etc., etc., got you down? It’s good to remember that life goes on, and is worth living. It is good to remember that for “the world,”

These were their thoughts, but they erred;
for their wickedness blinded them, [Read more...]
