The LCWR goat rodeo continues

The Leadership Conference of Women Religious has been in a demonstrable doctrinal tailspin for years.  The LCWR has been strange enough that the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith got involved.  The LCWR has its charter from the Holy … Continue reading

We start a new work week with some old fashioned dissent.
And I mean old.

The Ghost of Lib-Mass Yet To Come

Someone sent me a link to an article in Hell’s Bible (aka The New York Times) about “experimental worship” and moving beyond institutional church… sort of like what the National catholic Reporter praises.

“There’s a sad sort of clanging from the clock in the hall…” Farewell, Roy Bourgeois!

From The Sound of Music:
There’s a sad sort of clanging from the clock in the hall
And the bells in the steeple too
And up in the nursery an absurd little bird
Is popping out to say, “Cuckoo”
Regretfully they tell us but firmly they … Continue reading

McBrien is back, and venting for the Fishwrap

The National catholic Fishwrap has for many dark years offered columns by the not-yet-late Richard McBrien. His writings should usually be ignored, but this piece is such a good example of liberal whining and deception that it merits attention for … Continue reading

“Barack and Simone gazed at each other ….”

When the National catholic Fishwrap indulgences in its version of hagiography, the results aren’t pretty.
Their latest liberal panegyric is an attempt to transmogrify Sr. Simone Campbell, Democrat party activist, bus rider, into a progressivist’s alternative to Bl. Theresa of Calcutta.
Consider, … Continue reading
