Ad Absurdum: Contextualizing John the Baptist for Amoris Laetitia

At some point in this mess over the consternations on the problematic Amoris Laetitia, it occurred to me that John the Baptist and St. Thomas More have a lot to say about it. There are a lot of voices in the swirl…  well, every voice it seems besides that of Pope Francis. One can make the argument, and… Continue Reading

2017: but “Post-truth” Began with Abortion, is Consequence of Hardon’s Neopaganism

Fantasyland is not just an insult anymore — it’s real. And people live there and force the rest of us there, too. When I was a kid, I remember getting burned by a childhood insult many times…. If I said, “I love carrots and peas”, then quickly someone else would say “oh yeah, then why don’t you marry… Continue Reading

Elections: Screaming for Barabbas?

I was aghast at some of the irrational mental gymnastics I’ve seen tossed about in the name of Catholic thinking about this election. For instance, Simcha Fisher, who writes for Catholics, is propounding that she voted for Hillary Clinton. Coverage of this has occurred elsewhere in social media, and you can read a pretty good analysis at blog Mahound’s… Continue Reading

Runaway Memes: Pumpkin Spiced Sacrilege on the Feast of St. Gennaro
