‘Guys …’: The Bible Explained in One Post

Yes, of course, there’s more to it than this, but this is not bad, not bad at all, and pretty darn funny. Some of the comments on tickld.com and Reddit are a hoot, too (click here for tickld, click here for Reddit).    

Pope Francis’ Latest Bombshell

“A significant rhetorical break with Catholic tradition.” That’s what MSNBC’s Daniel Berger is calling Pope Francis’ latest “revolutionary” insight. Take it away, Mr. Berger: “Pope Francis made a significant rhetorical break with Catholic tradition Monday by declaring that the theories of evolution and the Big Bang are real, and remarking that God is not “a magician [...]

Synod on the Family Debates Correct Pronunciation of “Synod”

In a somewhat strange development, discussions at the Extraordinary Synod on the Family have stalled due to the sudden emergence of a fierce debate among the bishops over the proper way to pronounce the word “synod.” Reportedly the dispute centers on whether the correct pronunciation is sigh-nod or sinnid. While seemingly a matter of little [...]

The Cutest Thing You Will See All Day

  No, all week. At a school in the Diocese of Lincoln, the students recently celebrated the feast of St. Therese of Lisieux by dressing up as the Little Flower. Bishop Conley, pastor extraordinaire and recent guest columnist at Catholic Vote, was on hand to celebrate Mass for the students, and then stuck around for [...]

An Open Letter to the People of Scotland

Dear Scotland: I understand that sometimes it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, but it seems to me that [...]

Kennedy Worship and Celebrity Priests: Peeling ‘The Onion’ of Cults of Personality

There’s a wickedly clever piece from the satire site “The Onion” circulating around called “FBI Raids Kennedy Fundamentalist Compound.” Click here to read the whole thing, but here’s an excerpt: “‘At approximately 4:15 a.m., federal agents entered the Kennedy premises, apprehending numerous individuals and charging them with multiple counts of attempting to infiltrate the government [...]

Fail: Pro-Abortion Twitter Challenge Goes “Viral”…Except It Doesn’t

  Wow, this was really pathetic. Pro-abortion activist Andrea Grimes, a political reporter at “reproductive justice” site RH Reality Check, must have thought she was pretty clever when she came up with the Taco Beer Abortion Challenge. Apparently thinking she could take advantage of the recent Ice Bucket Challenge that has conquered the Internet and [...]

The ‘Fool-Priest’ Is Dead: Robin Williams, Rest in Peace

In the wake of the death of Robin Williams, Facebook and Twitter lit up with reminiscences. The best YouTube, for me, was the sign off from Mork to Orson about the loss of a friend (see it below). It seems to sum up so much of the work of Robin Williams. He is being absurd [...]

Conservatives Are Neanderthals (And so is your mom)

  That’s supposedly what a new study says, and some liberals are getting pretty excited about it. According to liberal outlet Mother Jones, the study claims that your political views, rather than being shaped by what you learned in school or through life experience, are determined by an inherent genetic predisposition to see things a certain [...]

The Ugliest Churches In The World

  A little something for the weekend. Over at Real Clear Religion, Nicholas G. Hahn III has a slideshow of the ugliest churches in the world.  They represent several denominations, but the vast majority are – you guessed it – Roman Catholic. Below are just a few of these architectural miscarriages, all of them Catholic.  [...]
