Stop adding to the lay apologist's bankroll and other random thoughts on a Saturday afternoon

  •  Like the swallows returning to Capistrano and the cicadas  of Summer singing their lieberstodt, Steven Skojec  is doing his big "crisis" of Faith production for 2020. I'm being sarcastic but really, haven't we seen this before? That man would have probably been much happier --  if his struggle's with doubt really are true-- if he'd gotten a real job instead of making his money off the Faith. 

    If any Catholic college student is reading this then here's one piece of advice: If you are majoring in Theology and intend to make your money as an apologist, stop now. By all means study theology but use your time at college as training for an honest job that will actually support you and your future family.  Our Church does not need anymore lay people using the Church Militant- the living laity as opposed to the Church Triumphant in Heaven and the Church Suffering in Purgatory-- as a cash cow.  This comment from a wise reader of the Noni Veni Pacem blog says it better than I do.  

  • "I had thought that at the time Roe was decided, there was concern about population growth and particularly growth in populations that we don’t want to have too many of." Ruth Bader Ginsberg

    Ruth Ginsberg is dead on Rosh Hashanah. Pray for her soul but let's not sugar coat this. She had 87 years of life; far more than most people get and she was resolute in her evil beliefs. Millions of babies are dead. Millions of women ruined their own lives.  Ruth thought that was just great. 

  • I bought a mask that says "Memento Mori" on it. Two priests looked at me and I think the deacon's eyes lit up. 

  • St. Januarius, pray for us.
