Slugfest at the Vatican

If I known it was going to be a slugfest, I’d have shown up myself. I mean, what’s more fun than bashing liberal heads!  They’re empty and crack easily.  Oh, it’s a figure of speech.  Never mind. The Washington Post reports: At one point during a major summit of the Roman Catholic hierarchy that ends …

Obama insults Pope. Yawn?

This could turn out to be better than the Republican debate, an admittedly low bar to entertainment.  But I’m kinda, sorta doubting it. Sometimes, I’d like to be Pope . . . just for a day.  Or. at least, Charles Martel. Ed Morrissey over at Hot Air notes Obama insults the Pope: At practically the …

Pope acting like a leftist politician?

Ya’ think?  Maybe it’s not an act. Paul Gos­ar is not pleased with Pope Fran­cis—and he’s ready to skip next week’s his­tor­ic speech as a res­ult. In an op-ed on the con­ser­vat­ive site Town­hall.com, the Ari­zona Re­pub­lic­an ap­pears very much con­cerned that Fran­cis will urge ac­tion to fight cli­mate change when he be­comes the first …

Punching the Pontiff in the Proboscis?

The Pope’s expecting me. Assuming the quotes are accurate, Pope Francis I (in the wake of the Musloids doing what Musloids do in France, this time): Pope Francis, who is currently on a week-long tour to Asia, said on Thursday that there are limits to freedom of expression, especially when it insults someone’s faith and …

Francis, the Pope

More than once, I have expressed strong concern over the off-the-cuff comments by Pope Francis.  Ever the pessimist, I was concerned about many things that he said – and in some case, things that were merely attributed to him.  And here it is, the day before Thanksgiving, and I see this little gem.  Odd, the …

Noonan on Francis.

My first thought was, she’s right – at least I hope she is.  Pope Francis is the anti-Dolan. Great piece by Peggy Noonan. From her lips (or word processor) to God’s ears. I’ll tell you how it looks: like one big unexpected gift for the church and the world. Everything about Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio’s …
