They write: Mr.Shea, I want to start by saying the I appreciate your writings, especially on poverty. I was coming to the conclusion that American churches alignment with Ayn Randian economics was related to “faith alone”/antinomian theology, which claims that the Christian life ought to require no sacrifice, and you expressed these thoughts very well in your books and blogging. Some protestants have also come around to that idea, as articulated in David Platt’s book. I’m unfamiliar with Platt, but… Read more

…being as how I enjoyed Neil Gaiman’s Good Omens and really enjoyed his response to some white supremacist snowflake who could not cope with a depiction of Adam and Eve being black… You know, it’s when people who proclaim themselves as “white supremacists” turn off Good Omens after the first few minutes, and then come on Twitter to tell me off, that I think sometimes a negative review is a marvelous and heartwarming thing. https://t.co/AwX3oclXaZ — Neil Gaiman (@neilhimself) June… Read more

When we think of ugly and unpopular social sins, we usually think of people who embody the utter worst, compare ourselves to that, and conclude that we are fine since we are not the utter worst. So the person who routinely starts sentences with “I’m not a racist, but…” and delivers himself of some racist blather typically thinks that because he has not personally put the noose around somebody’s neck at a lynching, or flown a swastika, or worn a… Read more

Dear Abortion Supporters: When you spend decades repeating the mantra “blob of tissue” and somebody with some science shows up to point out you are full of crap, you should face the fact that you made a mistake relying on woolly rhetoric instead of science. I have watched for years as abortion supporters have offered woolly philosophical nonsense (“When, precisely, does the soul enter the body?”) in defense of abortion while Christians have been the ones pointing to hard facts… Read more

News item from last summer that just washed up in my feed: OXFORD, England – A 16-year-old peasant girl will be beatified as a martyr in Slovakia, seven decades after she was shot in front of her family for resisting rape by a drunken Soviet soldier. Anna Kolaserova “embodies the faithful layperson living in their family, regularly receiving sacraments, praying the rosary and approaching God through good works. Her heroic testimony, drawn from a sincere spiritual life, is something every… Read more

My friend John Medaille chews over what a really consistent prolife ethos means: Hence the “pro-life” movement, by tying itself to the Republican Party, ties itself to the aggressive support of capitalism and to the party least likely to impose any controls or obligations on the system. Like the Fox channels, they have bracketed off the moral and cultural issues, so that they support with one hand what they oppose with the other. They oppose the culture of abortion while… Read more

…is very Chestertonian. He would have loved the whole concept of finding magic in everyday stuff. That is one of the great gifts Chesterton gave us: his love of seen the miraculous in the everyday. He remarked that the world would never starve for want of wonders, but for want of wonder. Wonder is the mother of philosophy, science, art, and religion. All of them are ways of exploring Wonder. I once tried to capture something of that in a… Read more
