Vatican starts a free laundromat.

I guess this is nice.  Hope it stays that way. CNN reports (so it might be really fake news): Pope Francis has opened a free laundromat for the poor in Rome, the Vatican said Monday.   Six washing machines, six dryers and a number of irons have been donated by the Whirlpool Corporation, while Proctor and …

High School Students Serenade Dying Teacher

It’s a weird day.  I’m even linking to CNN, if that gives you any idea how weird a day it is. A beloved high school teacher whose students gathered outside his window to serenade him has died after a battle with cancer. Ben Ellis, who taught Latin and Bible studies at Christ Presbyterian Academy in …

Mercy without Truth is cruel.

Sodomite priest suspended For in that [Christ] died, he died unto sin once: but in that he liveth, he liveth unto God.   Likewise reckon ye also yourselves to be dead indeed unto sin, but alive unto God through Jesus Christ our Lord. Let not sin therefore reign in your mortal body, that ye should obey it …

Hillary’s sweep toward the nomination.

Fortunately, she already has the broom. By now it’s old news that Joe BIden isn’t going to run for President.  Doesn’t really matter to me though. He gave what can only be described as a campaign speech to say why he wasn’t going to get into a campaign. I was struck by two comments he …

Wait. You mean it’s a baby in there. Who knew?

Ever notice that every time a Christian suggests that he believes in Creation, he gets lambasted, ridiculed, and otherwise treated not very nice.  Ditto for even questioning Global Warming.  “Follow the science,” we are chided. Yet we possess evidence that on the evidence spectrum is right up there with thermonuclear devices.  A picture is worth …

ISIS forcing abortions on Yazidi women.

Cecile Richards actually cracked a smile . . .  . . . and Planned Parenthood calls it medical services. Kind of reminds me of the complaints by the children of Israel about getting manna.  “We want meat!” they cried.  God said, “You want meat; I’ll give you meat.  Until it comes out your nose, I’ll …

St. Catherine’s prescience.

“Most Holy Father,… because He [Christ] has given you authority and because you have accepted it, you ought to use your virtue and power. If you do not wish to use it, it might be better for you to resign what you have accepted; it would give more honor to God and health to your …

This just in from the Congregation for Mixed Messages

For God is not the author of confusion, but of peace, as in all churches of the saints. I Corinthians 14:33 The Vatican on Saturday dismissed a gay priest from his Holy See job on the eve of a major Church meeting for a highly public coming out that challenged the Roman Catholic teaching that …

Friends don’t let friends . . . go to hell.

The least charitable thing you can do (or be) to someone is to be indifferent to them.  A popular slogan was that “Friends don’t let friends drive drunk.”  Implicit in this phrase is the presupposition that if you really care about someone you will intervene to stop them from reckless behavior that endangers them and …

Planned Parenthood, funding, and missing the point.

Undercover videos, Congressional hearings, Planned Parenthood talking heads (most of whom seem to be employed by CNN).  No wonder so many have been so distracted and so disturbed at the same time. The Center for Medical Progress has done a masterful job.  They did their homework and executed, as far as I can tell, near …
