Musings of a Damn Yankee
This isn’t so much a blog post as it is a public service announcement. I just want to give my readers another friendly reminder that the media hates the Catholic Church, hates Christ’s holy priesthood, and will do anything and everything in their power to destroy them. Exhibit A: On June 4, NBC News ranContinue reading “The Witch-Hunt Against Catholic Priests”
My old pal Matt Purple has another fascinating piece on the coronavirus pandemic in The Spectator USA. According to Matt, our worst fears have been realized: “your conspiracy theorist friends were right”—COVID was engineered in a Wuhan lab that received funding from the U.S. government. “In fairness,” writes Mr. Purple, nothing that’s emerged over theContinue reading “All News Is Fake News”
“He wants to turn the Church of England into a religious movement.” — Jim Hacker By the time I was old enough to know my thees and thous, the Episcopal Church had descended into pure modernism. Lucky me. If it hadn’t, I’m not sure I would have ever worked up the nerve to swim the Tiber.Continue reading “Dreams of Canterbury”
National Review has just published the best report on the COVID pandemic I’ve read in months. It’s called “The Fall of St. Anthony Fauci”; its author, the always-excellent Michael Brendan Dougherty, shows what a naked operator Dr. Fauci really is: When confronted by hostile questions about his changing statements, Fauci says—like any good scientist—that heContinue reading “The Meaning of Dr. Fauci”
I love Bookshop.org and would happily recommend it to anyone as an alternative to Amazon or its subsidiaries like AbeBooks. Inevitably, their politics are left-of-center. Those politics are trumpeted pretty loudly, as in this list they’re promoting called “Books About Being Queer in a Country Where It’s Illegal.” This is my favorite genre of progressivism:Continue reading “Oh, the Irony!”
Our friends at Rorate Caeli report that their sources in Rome expect Pope Francis to either abolish or significantly alter Summorum Pontificum. For those who don’t know, Summorum is a muto proprio promulgated by Pope Benedict XVI in 2008. It says that (contrary to what many Church officials claimed in the wake of Vatican II)Continue reading “The Future of Summorum Pontificum”
“But if any one is compelled, so that union may be preserved, to renounce his own private opinion, let him do it cheerfully for the common good. “ — Pope Leo XIII My dear brother in Christ, As our maiden aunts used to say, bad news travels faster than good news. And that was beforeContinue reading “An Open Letter to the MadTrads”
I hope none of my readers have been impacted by the “cyberattack” on the Colonial Pipeline. Aside from gas prices nearing $3 per gallon, we’ve more or less been spared here in New England. The whole situation is infuriating—not least of all because it was entirely avoidable. No doubt that many of you thought thatContinue reading “Rage Against the Machines”
As my readers know, I’m a big Dreher-ist. I have a huge amount of admiration for the Rod Dreher, both professionally and personally. His book The Benedict Option is the single biggest influence on my book The Reactionary Mind. When his latest book Live Not By Lies came out last year, I gave it aContinue reading “Boring Ourselves to Death”
On Mother’s Day, as a favor to my venerable mater-in-law, I chopped up a dead log that’s been sitting in their backyard for the better part of three years. It wasn’t much of a chore. For weeks now, I’ve been look for an excuse to use an axe: the sweetest fruit of man’s rational soul.Continue reading “The High Cost of Free Love”
