The “logical union of women’s ordination and sodomy”

I have noticed lately an uptick in chatter about women deacons, deaconettes, deaconesses, whatever.  There was a conference at Fordham recently at which speakers (read: promoters) blew past the obvious problems of our lack of certainty about what ordination may … Continue reading

Popcorn Moment! James Keenan, SJ, and his 8 women cardinals!

At Fishwrap, which is ever devolving into the delusions they have fomented over the years, you can read about the devious Jesuit promoter of sodomy – I know, I know – James Keenan. Weigel’s notes on Keenan’s antics are helpful. Keenan … Continue reading

I reject sexism in every form, and all its pomps, and all its empty works.

At the Fishwrap (aka National Schismatic Reporter) there is an interesting piece by our old pal Phyllis Zagano which merits a little – just a little – attention. She never misses an opportunity to work in tidbits about the disparity of … Continue reading

A few days ago Jesuit Fr. Thomas Reese, who had been relieved of his post as editor of America Magazine when Card. Ratzinger was Prefect of the CDF, and who now writes for the National Schismatic Reporter (aka Fishwrap) came … Continue reading

In response to Phyllis Zagano on the matter of female deacons

Our old pal Phyllis Zagano has a fresh column at the Fishwrap (aka National Schismatic Reporter).  How’s this for a captatio benevolentiae? Pope Francis named just one woman from the Western Hemisphere to his commission on women deacons. That would be me. … Continue reading

Who are the members of the new “women deacons” study group?

The Holy Father appointed a committee to study – again – the notion of ordination of women as deacons.  This was already studied by the International Theological Commission, which leaned away from the possibility of sacramental ordination. It is good to … Continue reading

New Commission on Deaconesses formed

Here is something pretty bizzare… This has come out of the blue like a… that thing that comes out of the blue.  A bolt?  A raise in your health insurance premium?  A sprained ankle?  My point is that, as I write, none … Continue reading

Why aging liberals are so nasty and so frightened

At the UK’s best Catholic weekly, the Catholic Herald, there is an analysis piece by a writer for First Things, Matthew Schmitz. He writes about the angst libs are experiencing, as they cope with the ticking clock: Pope Francis isn’t moving fast … Continue reading

Fishwrap’s Zagano: The Catholic Church is like an Islamic mob that beats women to death

Over at Fishwrap (aka National Schismatic Reporter) our old pal, and promoter of women’s ordination, Phyllis Zagano has another knee-slapper. She has a penchant for over-the-top moral equivalencies.  Let’s see her latest cringe-worthy claim: Because the Catholic Church doesn’t ordain women, the Catholic Church … Continue reading

Amusing Diaconal Hijinx

Every once in a while you will encounter the bizarre practice of listing the names of wives of permanent (and married) deacons together with the names of their clerical husbands.  You might also see the wives troop into a church in … Continue reading

Phyllis Zagano trusts Google Translate, slanders Card. Müller

Over at the Fishwrap, our dear old friend Phyllis Zagano has a fantastic piece this week.  It’s a classic! First, let me say – as I have said before  – that Phyllis is solidly pro-life.  She is firmly against abortion and … Continue reading

Wherein Fr. Z offers kudos to and agreement with…. PHYLLIS ZAGANO!

I find myself in complete agreement with Phyllis Zagano. [Those sounds you are hearing are jaws hitting desks, mugs of Mystic Monk coffee dropping to the floor with a crash and splash, astonished readers sliding off chairs in a swoon.] … Continue reading

A follow up on the MOOS for the ordination of women

You will recall that our old pal Phyllis Zagano, a writer for the National Schismatic Reporter (aka Fishwrap), promoted her MOOS for the ordination of women. MOOS means, I understand, a “Massive Online Open Seminar”.  It seems it was not … Continue reading

The ‘c’atholic Left turns more and more against Pope Francis

A few days back the Vicar of Christ, Pope Francis, gave an interview to Il Messaggero. There wasn’t much of interest in it. The Pope is becoming a little bit more careful, it seems. Rush Limbaugh and Michael Sean Winters … Continue reading

ACTION ITEM! Still time to sign up for women’s ordination MOOS!

Some folks who are Catholics for the Ordination of Women (C.O.W.s) are now offering their MOOS to the general public. Not tweets… MOOS! Exciting! I saw at, where else, the National Schismatic Reporter (aka The Fishwrap) that MOOS are yours … Continue reading
