Pope Francis slaps down those who resist the Holy Spirit

Sr. Simone Campbell spins the CDF smackdown of the LCWR. Hilarity ensues.

In a story about the CDF smackdown on the LCWR, USA Today quotes Sr. Simone Campbell of the ultra-poltical, ultra-liberal Nuns on the Bus crowd. Sr. Campbell is too smart actually to believe this, but let’s read it anyway: […] … Continue reading

For Fishwrap, El Pueblo knows best!

Over at the National Schismatic Reporter, Michael Sean Winters has a supremely naïve piece (for which I hope he was paid by the word).  Winters lays out a grand plan for Pope Francis to reform the Roman Curia and why. … Continue reading

What is Pope Francis really saying?

Here is what I think Pope Francis is up to. In this explanation I am not necessarily endorsing specific things that he is doing (washing the feet of females in a prison) or not doing (refusing the mozzetta, etc.). I … Continue reading

Liberals will soon turn on Pope Francis

We are still a bare few days into the pontificate of Pope Francis. I have therefore declined to gush out lots of entries here, burbling my every half-formed notion about what is going to happen. I have also avoided surfing … Continue reading

Dear readers, Over the years it has been part of my plan to provide a space in which – to put it bluntly – some of you of the more traditionalist flavor could vent a little.  After decades of what … Continue reading

Coarse and duplicitous anti-Catholic piece in The Washington Times

The other day there was a particularly tasteless and mendacious article in the Washington Times (I thought better of them) entitled “Is ‘bad Catholic’ the new Catholic?” written by Nicole Pandolfo. This piece is so bad that she does not … Continue reading

Fishwrap’s Kennedy wrong about Flannery’s heresy.

Video by Hollywood stars about guns followed by the reality check video

Don’t you wish sometimes that you never… I mean never… saw or heard Hollywood stars when they weren’t actually in a show or movie? Some of these people are getting into the gun-control issue. Strikes me as a bit hypocritical. … Continue reading

Rumor… that’s it… rumor… UPDATED
