If you’ve been following along with my A to Z posts, you might have noticed I skipped right over the letter K. Here’s the thing. I was ready to publish a post about kenosis and kerygma (sounds like a barn burner, no?), but I just couldn’t shake a different K-word. Kermit, as in Kermit Gosnell, the doctor currently on trial in Philadelphia for first and third-degree murders. . . . → Read More: The K-Word I Just Can’t Shake

Did you hear that? It’s the sound of the Obama administration taking aim at the Catholic Church. I’m sure there are some who disagree with me, who want me to just relax and stop with the conspiracy theory nonsense. I won’t.

I have seen quite enough sour-faced Catholics arguing for AND against this issue.
So lately I . . . → Read More: Save Us from Sour-Faced Catholics & Silent Priests
