Madame Defarge (@MichaelSWinters) is upset that people don’t find the Terror – applied to real people today – very funny.

At Fishwrap, the Madame Defarge of the catholic Left, and their official Tricoteuse, has temporarily left his knitting spot near the guillotine and returned to the Fainting Couch to swoon in the wake of negative reactions to his thought-revealing imagery.
I wrote … Continue reading

Look at this piece from from Politico:
Hey Democrats, Fighting Fair Is for Suckers
[…]
The list of those changes is dizzying. Grant statehood to D.C. and Puerto Rico, and break California in seven, with the goal of adding 16 new Democrats to … Continue reading

Wherein Fr. Z responds to a libelous cheap-shot from @MichaelSWinters

At Fishwrap (aka National Sodomitical Reporter), usual suspect Michael Sean Winters has risen from his couch to defame me with a libelous statement.  Libel is a published false statement that is damaging to a person’s reputation.

Wherein Fr. Z agrees with Fishwrap’s @MichaelSWinters … but…

The other day retired liberal SCOTUS Justice John Paul Stevens issued an op-ed in Hell’s Bible in which he argued for the repeal of the 2nd Amendment.
I’ll get to MSW in a moment.  Bear with me.

Fishwrap’s Wile E. Coyote v. @DouthatNYT and his new book for Pope Francis’ 5th anniversary

shocking, absolutely shocking
unhinged
lunatic fringe
unhelpful admixture of bias and ignorance
binary simplicity of his theological analysis
a 7-year-old’s paint-by-numbers drawing with the collection of the Louvre (followed by, incredibly, “I do not exaggerate”.)
Coarse and hoary!
myopic
unsourced
tendentious
grotesque
unbalanced
disgrace

This is a sample of terms used by Michael … Continue reading

H.L. Mencken in 1923 about translation of sacred texts, liturgy. Hilarious, prophetic, applicable now.

One of you readers here sent this.  It is by H.L Mencken, an influential American columnist in the 20th c.  He was prodigiously clever, but clever enough to avoid being a fan of Nietzche and an enemy of religion.  He … Continue reading

More dreck at Fishwrap

At Fishwrap (aka the National Schismatic Reporter) there are a couple of dreadful reads.  Shocking, right?
First, Jesuit Thomas Reese wrote (at the horrid RNS), about how more conservative Catholics are now “cafeteria Catholics” because they disagree with Pope Francis.  But … Continue reading

@MichaelSWinters nasty remark about converts. Wherein Fr. Z rants.

Today there is a “Defense of Converts” in First Things.
There is a defense because there was an attack.
A couple days back, at the Fishwrap (aka National Sodomitic Reporter), the Wile E. Coyote of the catholic Left, Michael Sean Winters, attacked converts.
At Al … Continue reading

Who’s behind Spadaro, et al?

Over the last few days it feels like the news is coming in at firehose volume and force.
And, from the onset, I’ll just say now that the moderation queue is ON.
