Shocking! Pope Francis and I Agree on Politics

Did you see Pope Francis’s homily yesterday? Therein he said,

“A good Catholic meddles in politics, offering the best of himself, so that those who govern can govern. None of us can say, ‘I have nothing to do with this, they govern.’” [Read more...]

Vladimir Putin, From Russia With Love?

His future’s so bright, he’s got to wear shades…

Valdimir Putin in the New York Times, writing with poise about the de-evolution of US foreign policy, the purpose of the United Nations, and the pathway to peace in Syria. I think he studied the speech delivered to the UN by Pope Paul VI, back in the Fall of 1965.

Al-Qaeda Learns How To Lobby Congress? UPDATED

Elisabeth O’Bagy, researcher of “moderate opposition” in Syria.

No disrespect to Raymond Chandler intended for thinking of his titles, but I will never get back the hour I lost reading Bottums’ essay, where  he makes his personal case for coming out in favor of Same Sex Marriage, or of not fighting it anymore. [Read more...]

Someone Send Governor Christie A Catechism. Please.

By just perusing it briefly, see, he could learn a lot of neat things. You know, like how the Church teaches that homosexuals are no more sinful than folks who are not homosexuals. [Read more...]

Like the Coptic Church Does, The United States Should Be Supporting the Egyptian Provisional Government UPDATED

Christian churches scapegoated the other day…

The Coptic Christian Church in Egypt has put out the following statement,

“The Egyptian Coptic Church is following the unfortunate developments on the ground of our country Egypt and emphasizes its strong stance with the Egyptian police, armed forces and other organizations of the Egyptian people in the face of groups of armed violence and black terrorism…While we appreciate the sincere and friendly position that understands the nature of the developments, we strongly deplore the media fallacies that are prevalent in Western countries.”

Clothing the Blessed Virgin Mary in the Flag? Great Moments in ‘Murika!

So there I was, minding my own business, getting ready for a day off tomorrow to celebrate the birth of our nation. And then I saw this…

I’m all for love of God, and love of country, but make the hurting stop!
