Hooray for George Neumayr !!!!
I’m a Catholic who is embarrassed by the Bishops’ idiocy. One Bishop did rise to say that decisions on war should be left to the civil authorities who have the competence to discern what is needed. Two others also objected but were disregarded.p>Thanks. br> — Julia /p>
I take e-mail in hand to waste a few minutes of my time commenting on the USCCB and their statement on Iraq. A waste of time, because the U.S. bishops, for the most part, are the Walking Dead, and they don’t know it. Nobody cares what they have to say about Iraq, any more than anyone is today poring over their pastoral letter against Reagan’s plan to topple the Soviet Union or the equally forgotten pastoral letter condemning Reaganomics.p>The U.S. bishops are simply a nonentity in our society now. They will not have their credibility back until long after this generation has passed away. br> — Vincent Fitzpatrick /p> p> Thank you, Mr. Neumayr, for your knock-out punch article “Peacenicks Bishops are Back.” I am Catholic and, like so many other Catholics, I am beside myself with frustration at the Bishops’ blinding arrogance and apathy about the destruction of our beautiful Church. They are making such fools of themselves, yet, like Clinton and others like him, it is apparent they have no clue as to their foolishness. If Jesus walked the earth today, they would crucify him, again, because instead of knocking over the moneychangers tables, I think he would blow up the new L.A. Cathedral and stuff. And he would call the Bishops fools and vipers to their faces instead of being intimidated by them and paying them false respect just because and for no other reason. They are dead weight.
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
