The Theology of Bad Taste

 

That hang-over from the mid-1960s, the theology of bad taste, has opened shop in Detroit. It began with a letter from Archbishop Allen Henry Vigeron to the people of the Detroit Archdiocese entitled “Unleash the Gospel.” Wasn’t there anyone in the board room with the cajones to tell His Excellency that the title of his […]

Confession 2017 — Bernie Sanders’ Christophobia

 

I am a Jew. All of my ancestors have been Jews since Judaism was founded almost 6,000 years ago on the belief of a monotheistic God. I pray in Hebrew every morning and every night. And I am deeply, cruelly, painfully embarrassed at my fellow Jew, Bernie Sanders, Senator from Vermont. Within the last few […]

Bring Back Christendom

 

By now you may have come across the controversy spun up over the weekend when Rep. Clay Higgins, the new congressman from Louisiana’s 3rd District, sent an outraged reaction to the London Bridge jihadist attacks over Facebook. The bulk of what Higgins said was remarkable only for the florid and perhaps overwrought language he used […]

They Out-Believe Us

 

So: more police on the streets; better intelligence; better security arrangements; less nonsense when it comes to toleration of the outrageous. The British are doing what they must and can to ward off future terrorist-related catastrophes. It may help. It will likely not do the job with anything like the thoroughness the situation seems to […]

Sunday June 4 is opening day of the East Lansing, Michigan, farmers market. But if you’re in the neighborhood you won’t be able to buy fresh produce from farmers Steve and Bridget Tennes. Although the Tennes family has been a vendor at the market for six years, this year the city of East Lansing has […]

Pope Francis Aide Trashes Trump

 

One of Pope Francis’s close friends, Argentine Bishop Marcelo Sorondo, can always be counted on to blurt out what is whispered within the halls of the Vatican. He didn’t disappoint yesterday, allowing himself a series of demagogic remarks at Trump’s expense in anticipation of a U.S. pull-out from the Paris climate accord. “I don’t know […]

The Political Pope Francis

 

George Neumayr’s vitally important new book, The Political Pope: How Pope Francis Is Delighting the Liberal Left and Abandoning Conservatives, is a wake-up call for anyone who may have been following the Vatican on mainstream media but hasn’t had time to dig deeper. In this book the true Pope Francis comes into focus in a […]

The Moral Clarity of the Morally Depraved

 

Tolerant, kind, generous, forbearing — none of this you’d call our everyday Islamic mass murderer. One thing you may justly call him: discerning. He knows the stakes in the war on terror. He knows the degree to which the Christian, or semi-Christian, West makes impossible the realization of his ideals. Accordingly, he — or at […]

Trump at the Vatican: The Secret Transcript

 

Your Holiness, thank you for inviting me here. I am so honored. You know that a majority of American Catholics voted for me last November. It made the difference. States like Pennsylvania, Michigan. I wouldn’t be here without their support. And I am honored for that too. Some Catholics didn’t support me, of course. But […]

How I Ended Up in David Garrow’s New Barry Bio

 

In the course of researching No Higher Power: Obama’s War on Religious Freedom, I learned that the late Chicago cardinal Joseph Bernardin helped pay for the education of Barack Obama in Saul Alinsky’s ruthless tactics. A forerunner to Pope Francis, Bernardin was a devious socialist who poured the faithful’s money into the pockets of the […]
