Comments and Posts

  I HAVE more comments to post in the previous discussion. I hope to return to blogging this afternoon. I had to travel out of town to take care of a relative who is sick and have not had any time at my computer since yesterday.

The “Rules” of a Feminist Father

  KARL D. writes: This charming photo from a group called “Blue Nation Review” has been making the rounds on Facebook. A man purporting to be a “Feminist Father” is wearing a T-shirt that lays out the “rules” for dating his daughter. The punch line (if you want to call it that) is that there are […]

Library and Castle

  LACONIA Public Library in Laconia, New Hampshire is housed in one the many beautiful American public library buildings built in the 19th and early 20th centuries, at a time when the acts of thinking and reading were still considered inherently ennobling. The building, so different from the functional and non-ornamental modern library, speaks of its […]

Another South African Victim

  THE end of white rule in South Africa has been a spectacular disaster for black South Africans and white Afrikaners. The soccer star Senzo Meyiwa is the latest victim of gun violence there. He was killed during a robbery. More than 17,000 people were murdered in South Africa from April 2013 to March 2014, an increase […]

Jorge on Evolution

  MR. BERGOGLIO speaks on evolution. As usual, he specializes in contradictions and incoherence. God creates all things and yet he is not magic. God directed biological change and yet gave “autonomy” to beings. Evolution (popularly understood as the appearance of life forms through random mutation) is “not inconsistent with the notion of creation.” Let me […]

The Landscape of American “Marriage”

  I WAS browsing on a publisher’s website when I came across this. From the publisher’s description: Marriage and monogamy are not what they used to be, and today many couples are opting to start families before getting married, or deciding not to get married at all. At the same time, gay couples in states that […]

The White Response to Unspeakable Black Savagery

  WILL there ever be enough T-shirts and candles and stuffed animals and ribbons to console whites for the loss of relatives to crimes so brutal and sudden that they, the survivors, spend the rest of their lives stunned and uncomprehending?

Double Standards and Pregnancy

  THE New York Times has lectured the world on the “right” to terminate a pregnancy (and the life of an unborn child) millions of times. The implication is that pregnancy is a grave inconvenience. Infertile couples willing to adopt newborns are abundant, so it’s not that a woman absolutely must be inconvenienced after she delivers her […]

Non-Discrimination Kills

  THOMAS F. BERTONNEAU writes: I recently got into trouble at The Thinking Housewife by saying what I thought about naval officer Destiny Savage’s visual self-presentation.  Here I go again.  This time it’s the late Christie Rodgers, fireperson. I speak with some knowledge.  My father (1911 – 2006) joined the Los Angeles City Fire Department […]

Death of a Firefighter

  CHRISTI RODGERS, a 26-year-old volunteer firefighter, delivered her first child one month ago. This morning, she was awoken suddenly at 5 a.m by an emergency alarm for a house fire. She never arrived at the scene of the blaze. The Pennsylvania woman went into cardiac arrest after the call and now her child and husband are […]

Socialist “Bishops” Masquerade as Catholics

  HENRY McCULLOCH writes: Writing for Crisis Magazine, Mark Gallagher reveals in The Bishops’ Fateful Decision Respecting the Unborn just how soon Catholic bishops in the United States, represented by their Washington lobby, the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, abandoned their duty to oppose abortion as an intrinsic evil that must never be supported in resistance to the […]

Canada’s Muslims

  IN light of the two separate murders this week of Canadian soldiers by Muslim converts, it is worth reading this speech by Prime Minister Stephen Harper in February welcoming His Highness the Aga Kahn, who is honored by Ismaili Muslims as a direct descendant of Muhammad. (As usual the prime minister must ridiculously speak in […]

  “Just in proportion as maternity is honored is womanhood honored, and just in proportion as womanhood is honored are manners and morals elevated. Licentiousness cannot obtain a foothold where the real dignity and sphere of woman is understood and respected. It can prevail only where a low estimate of woman obtains in society, and […]

The Secret Ingredients in Pizza

  THIS is National Pizza Month, so please pause for a few moments to look around you and take in the physical devastation caused by mass consumption of one of the most disgusting foodstuffs ever invented by man. I am talking, of course, about commercial-grade pizza, not various forms of the authentic Italian food, which sometimes […]

  If you believe what you like in the gospels, and reject what you don’t like, it is not the gospel you believe, but yourself. —  St. Augustine
