From the "'Slippery Slope'? What 'Slippery Slope'?" file
This, my pal Justin Brink tells me, can also fit in the "Never Saw This Coming" and "Tolja So" files. From the Associated Press (via The Blaze) : HELENA, Mont. (AP) — A Montana man has applied for a marriage license so he can legally wed his second wife. Na...

Dear “Occupy Democrats”
Of course, if that message isn't quite clear enough, then perhaps I could offer the following substitute: FUCK YOU. WE’RE AMERICANS, TOO. Did I mention I've declared my independence of the Zeitgeist? Semper Fi. Carry on.

Yabba-dabba-D'OH!
“One woe doth tread another’s heel, So fast they follow.” As if things weren’t already looking bad enough, here comes some more embarrassing news :  “ Jurassic World” may have been a documentary as far as millions of Americans are concerned. A recent survey...

Post-Charleston liberal screaming at imaginary conservatives
Dylann Roof, Thursday afternoon. (Image © Reuters/Jason Miscek.) One difference between liberals and conservatives: Liberals tend to think that mental illness excuses crime. Conservatives don’t agree; to them, it’s just another reason the perp should be off...

Catholic Stand: Christianity “Found Difficult and Left Untried”
Of course, I mean that Catholicism was not tried; plenty
of Catholics were tried, and found guilty. My point is that the world
did not tire of the church’s ideal, but of its reality. Monasteries were
impugned not for the chastity of monks, but for the un...

Zach Braff's sarcasm fail
Has anyone been mocked out of faith who wasn't already on the precipice of doubt? As stated, Zach's supposed zinger isn't an atheist/agnostic argument per se.  It could be merely an argument for religious tolerance ... except that it's from a Facebook page ...

The end of the American experiment
I had to take my time with my reaction to the Supreme Court’s
decision in Obergefell v.
Hodges (576 US __ [2015]) ,
because there were some comments and criticisms that led me to suspect it was
worse than I thought it would be. The suspicion was confirmed. ...

Arguably. Between the destruction of the family, the sapping of middle-class wealth, declining birthrate (and an immigration rate losing its ability to compensate for it), and the fracturing of social cohesion, I foresee a systemic "cascade failure" by 2045.

My Facebook declaration of independence
Since I normally use Facebook to maintain my relationships, I don't indulge in a lot of commentary or proselytization there ... just the occasional quip or grump over some headline, article, or event. When I was younger, I decided I didn't want to risk my f...

Book Review: Billy Joel biography “a hyperextended Rolling Stone article”
In my younger days, Billy Joel was one of those performers
whose music you either loved or hated, mostly depending on your tribal
affiliations, your musical expectations, and the depth of your musical
exposure. Put simply as possible, if you were really onl...

The smile on the lips of martyrs
I suppose we Catholic writers are socially expected to have a
massive episode of cognitive dissonance over the news of the
significant drop in religious affiliation over the years 2007 to 2014 .
Because, of course, this sort of thing has never happened befo...
