Pope Francis & Phil Robertson The Carrot and the Stick

Then Jesus straightened up and said to her, “Woman, where are they? Has no one condemned you?” She replied, “No one, sir.” Then Jesus said, “Neither do I condemn you. Go, (and) from now on do not sin any more.“ John 8:10-11 On this Second Day of Christmas I'm thinking of the huge contrast between … Continue reading Pope Francis & Phil Robertson The Carrot and the Stick

Once you start expecting a Catholic Priest to be Catholic when will it end?

Father Z post on the story of Fr. Marcel Guarnizo who has apparently been suspended for respecting the sacraments and the rules of confession: If a Quaker, a Lutheran or a Buddhist, desiring communion had introduced himself as such, before Mass, a priest would be obligated to withhold communion. If someone had shown up in … Continue reading Once you start expecting a Catholic Priest to be Catholic when will it end?

MSM: John Lewis, I’ve heard that name somewhere…LOOK A MORMON!

I went to ABC, CBS, NBC in the 7 a.m. hour, I checked CNN and I started watching Morning Joe at 6:16. John … Continue reading MSM: John Lewis, I’ve heard that name somewhere…LOOK A MORMON!

Let’s revisit Hell

If one believes in Christ and the church one must also believe his warning of the Devil and hell. … Continue reading Let’s revisit Hell

I think it’s getting rather disrespectful on the Rapture stuff

It's one thing to be critical and point out the theological errors but I think the general mocking of Christ and Christians I've been hearing and seeing has been rather distasteful. Bottom line, if you're a Christian it's part of the job description to be ready for the end of the world EVERY DAY because … Continue reading I think it’s getting rather disrespectful on the Rapture stuff

Big Hollywood hits a pet peeve of mine in the talk about The Exorcist

His general point concerning the church and Hollywood is correct and I suggest reading his piece, but he misses the real point of the movie, and the reason why it still scares me late in my 40's when I watch it by totally misinterpreting the ending: Then an enraged Karras, his belief in God firmly … Continue reading Big Hollywood hits a pet peeve of mine in the talk about The Exorcist

There is a distinction

The Anchoress being a wholly more holy person than me talks about the death penalty and Kermet Gosnell and finds herself opposing it: If you remain unaware of what investigators (who were actually looking for evidence related to drug trafficking) found when they entered Gosnell’s abattoir-for-humans, read the Grand Jury’s Report, if you can take … Continue reading There is a distinction

Now to keep my promise…

...to the fans of Fr. Feeney that took exception to my post here. I said the following in comments to reply to them: But I tell you what, although I’m not going to continue the debate here (particularly since it is an old post) I’ll make it a point to ask my parish priest on … Continue reading Now to keep my promise…

The American Papist is wrong and right at the same time

...concerning this story: Last July, as you may remember, Christians in the Indian state of Orissa were subjected to severe persecution. A 22 year old nun was burnt to death, an orphanage in Khuntpali village was burnt down by a mob, another nun was gang raped in Kandhamal, mobs attacked churches, torched vehicles, and destroyed … Continue reading The American Papist is wrong and right at the same time

A reference page for my friend

At game night this week I was informed that a friend of mine who is not religious is considering becoming a Jehovah's Witness. I live across the street from 3 generations of Jehovah's Witness, they are some of the nicest people in the neighborhood and their imminent departure in my opinion is a huge loss … Continue reading A reference page for my friend
