ZOMG An Argentinian Jesuit Who Took a Vow of Poverty Doesn’t Understand Economics The Same Way as an American Tea Party Conservatarian.

Nov 27, 2013 - Faith, Politics - 0 Comments - Standard

As a Catholic and a firm believer that capitalism is the best of all possible economic systems, I still can’t deny that there exists within a capitalist system corruption, evil and cronyism. People are part of capitalism so obviously their fallen nature is part it as well. If your conservative Christian mindset can’t withstand that […]

“Catholic” St. Louis University Practices Unfair Double Standards

Sep 15, 2012 - Culture, Faith, Politics - 0 Comments - Standard

It’s bad when any educational institution is against the free expression of ideas but I find it particularly troubling when a allegedly Catholic university displays this sort of double standard regarding Israel and Islam. There are probably two dynamics at work here: 1) the left wing anti-semitism and hatred for Israel and 2) abject cowardice […]

.@GovernorOMalley Distorts the Catholic Faith As Much As He Distorts His Own Record

Aug 12, 2012 - Culture, Faith, Maryland, Politics - 0 Comments - Standard

It’s no secret that Maryland’s governor Martin O’Malley has difficulty telling the truth, especially when he’s being hyper-partisan–which is pretty much always. He was quick to lob in some disingenuous snark on Mitt Romney’s selection of Paul Ryan as his running mate. “This’ll galvanize the nuns for President Obama,” the smilling governor said during an […]

George Mason Law Professor Speaks out on HHS Mandate

Some of you may not get the Catholic cable network EWTN or maybe you do and just haven’t watched it but they’ve got a pretty good news show called The World Over, hosted by Raymond Arroyo who you may have heard on The Laura Ingraham show. The content is obviously from a Catholic perspective but […]

Andrew Breitbart, An Upright Soul

Mar 01, 2012 - Faith, Media, Tea Party - 0 Comments - Standard

I’m not qualified to write a memorial piece on Andrew Breitbart, so let this passage suffice: But the souls of the upright are in the hands of God, and no torment can touch them. To the unenlightened, they appeared to die, their departure was regarded as disaster, their leaving us like annihilation; but they are […]

Stop me if you’ve heard this…A sleazy lawyer and a muslim walk into a Catholic University…

This is the sort of thing that can make a rational person’s head explode. [Catholic] University Accused of Discriminating Against Muslims What part of CATHOLIC University didn’t you understand? ‘The official allegations claim that CUA, “does not provide space – as other universities do – for the many daily prayers Muslim students must make, forcing […]

Fine moral lines are nonetheless lines

The story about Diocese of Phoenix, Arizona’s Bishop Thomas Olmstead stripping Saint Joseph Hospital of it’s Catholic status is full of examples of the Doorknob Axiom, such as this example from the Associated Press. PHOENIX – The Roman Catholic Diocese of Phoenix stripped a major hospital of its affiliation with the church Tuesday because of […]

As he has ever judged…Good and evil have not changed.

Dec 27, 2010 - Culture, Faith, Philosophy, Politics - 0 Comments - Standard

Excellent post by Kellie Jane over at Pundit League: Fairy Tales Aren’t for Wusses. My three favorite writers are probably J.R.R. Tolkien, C.S. Lewis, and G.K. Chesterton. One thing they share is a no nonsense view of the nature of good and evil. All three men were great thinkers and philosophers in their own right and […]

The melting pot must not melt

May 22, 2010 - Culture, Faith, Philosophy, Politics - 0 Comments - Standard

I refer back to G.K. Chesterton quite often. He is to me what I imagine Mao is to Anita Dunn. Chesterton was an amazing mind and is rightfully known as the “Apostle of Common Sense.” He is one of the most quotable writers in recent history, probably because he though and wrote about anything and […]

Westboro nutjobs to protest Frederick soldier’s funeral

I received this in an eMail this evening. Fred Phelps’ cult is targeting the funeral of a local hero for one of their disgusting protests. I grieve to have to send this email out to you.  Many of you may have heard about Cpl. Kurt Shea, who lost his life in service to our country.  […]

The Twitter avatar I recently started using in advance of “Everybody Draw Muhammed Day” got some recognition over at NewsReal. No fatwas have been issued as of yet. Not that I know of anyway. Thank you, @JennQPublic.
