Over on Twitter, I’ve had a chance to chat a little bit with Austen Ivereigh, for whom I have a warm respect and who is intensely hated by the same people who intensely hate the Holy Father. It is company I aspire to keep if possible. And since people have popped into my combox to tell me of their contempt for both these excellent men, I thought I could kill several birds with one stone by posting an excerpt from… Read more

Say they: Christians, don’t settle for the conservative or progressive narrative about abortion. Watch these women speak the truth in love (&) present a #NewNarrative that’s #ProWomen (&) #ProChild. The AND Campaign – Heart of the Matter from Kraven Photography on Vimeo. Smart prolifers know that until the prolife movement stops lying to itself that it is more important to instinctively resist anything that smells “liberal” than it is to ask “Is this liberal-smelling thing something that can be supported… Read more

concerning the cultural changes he is seeing there: Yesterday, our Parliament passed a euthanasia bill – unsurprising, given the response to the first and second readings.  I said to my wife this morning that I didn’t consider it a very big deal, in a way.  It is unfortunate, yes.  The law is a teacher.  We have made another step forward to telling the New Zealand people that killing people, or killing yourself, is a matter of your personal choice.  This… Read more

Here’s a little piece I wrote long ago in celebration of both Advent and the birth of our oldest son, Luke. Happy birthday, son! Every December 1, my mind fleets back to 1986 and to a small bedroom in a small apartment in Seattle. My wife, Janet, and I had just opened the first window in the Advent calendar when Jan announced that I had better call the doctor because it looked like it was “time.” Each moment of that… Read more

…is its perpetual penchant for making simple things complex and complex things simplistic: The Cult of Trump is still certain that Pizzagate is definitely a Real Thing that only their massive brains have teased out of the tangle of Deep State smoke and mirrors. But, Dunning-Kruger champs that they are, they cannot see their noses in front of their faces when it comes to Trump’s massively documented criminal acts. The fact that anybody ever took the judgment of this crowd… Read more

…and that’s a good thing: People in the West are psychologically unlike the rest of the world. Global studies find that Western Europeans and their descendents tend to be more individualistic, less conformist, and more trusting of strangers. But why? New research posits that the medieval Catholic Church, and its emphasis on monogamous marriage and the small family unit as the foundation of society, is responsible. According to a study published today (Nov. 7) in the journal Science, countries and regions with… Read more

Giunta is no fan of Pope Francis by any stretch.  But he is honest and he recognizes a Right Wing Lie Machine Panic du Jour from the congenitally dishonest Lifesite News when he sees it.  He writes: Undeterred by historical and anthropological fact, logical reasoning, sound theology, or basic human decency and the demands of Christian charity, the once-noble news outlet LifeSiteNews (for which I wrote a few articles some years ago) has doubled down in recent weeks on its #FakeNews “Pachmama… Read more

A reader writes: I would like to ask for your prayers for Abner, a boy in 8th grade, who has been diagnosed with leukemia. Please pray for Abner’s complete cure, minimal side effects from treatment, and restored regulation of his glucose. For his mother, Tsega and father Michael, for infinite strength and confidence in the goodness of the Lord and protection of Tsega’s health and the Lord’s care for the basic needs of the family while Tsega is unable to… Read more

It has really been astonishing to me, who 20 years ago assumed (and was taught by conservatives to expect) that it was just a matter of time till the Damn Libruls finally carried the day and drained language of all meaning.  Over and over I was warned (and warned others) that conservatives–and especially Catholic ones–were the bastions against all the deconstructionist nonsense in the academy which insisted that language has no objective meaning and that “truth” was simply a mask… Read more
