… between this: and this: via GIPHY Hint: It is not “prolife” or Christian. Just a minor refresher on elementary Christian ethics: Neither Jesus nor a disciple of Jesus mocks the physically or mentally disabled. Read more

Continuing a theme from last week, I thought it would be good to reprint a little series I once did (in 2007) on the relationship between the Old and New Covenants since it seems to be a source of confusion for many Catholics and cause of obnoxious and biblically illiterate and anti-semitic triumphalism for some. Here is Part One: The relationship between the Old and New Covenants has been a hot topic for 2000 years. Not long ago, Ann Coulter… Read more

…to those who voted Democrat in order to stop the Cult of Trump today. The essential failure of the “prolife” movement is that the core qualification for belonging to it is not (and has not been for decades), to say “I oppose and would like to reduce the number of abortions as much as possible.” That would be a movement open to converts and people on the way. It would be a movement willing to build coalitions with the majority… Read more

She writes “The GOP is forcing me to stop them because they won’t stop themselves”: I’m a lifelong registered republican, and I’ll probably vote straight democrat today.

So I went to Mass yesterday and Father talked about the goodness of Christian meditation. The core difference between Christian and non-western forms of meditation is the object. The goal of the east is detachment from the world and desire. It’s not a bad start since no small part of our problem is disordered attachment to creatures, aka idolatry. So part of Christian meditation is likewise to take our minds off earthly things as Paul says to do. But it… Read more

Just a reminder for those getting the “There’s blood on your hands if you vote Democrat” stuff: “A Catholic would be guilty of formal cooperation in evil, and so unworthy to present himself for Holy Communion, if he were to deliberately vote for a candidate precisely because of the candidate’s permissive stand on abortion and/or euthanasia. When a Catholic does not share a candidate’s stand in favour of abortion and/or euthanasia, but votes for that candidate for other reasons, it… Read more
