Not a Parody

 

As far as I can tell, this is not a delayed April Fools’ Day prank, a parody, or a joke but a straight news story. (If I’m wrong, correct me–please.)

TAUNTON, UK, April 2, 2015 – A judge has convicted and fined a street evangelist for quoting one verse of the Bible that condemns homosexuality on the streets of Taunton, Somerset — instead of quoting another verse.

If Republicans are seriously interested in getting some portion of votes from poorer black communities, then this is an opportunity.  A coalition of 34,000 churches is ending its relationship with the Presbyterian Church USA over its decision to recognize same-sex marriage. Preview Open

In past Ricochet conversations, some members have pointed out many gay men are not particularly effeminate or even noticeably gay. Not all gays are like the fruitcakes so beloved by Hollywood and Bravo TV. Granted. But what should we make of such fruity characters? Can it be anything other than an act, a deliberate rebellion […]

I don’t think the Republican brand is much better off than it was a few years ago. A lot of people are seeing that liberal ideas don’t work so well in real life (Iraq, healthcare, the economy), but they still could not bring themselves to vote for a Republican. Here are some issue I think […]

Catholic College Pulls a Mozilla

 

By all accounts, Sister Jane Dominic Laurel is an accomplished theologian and teacher. She is a graduate of the Pontifical University of St. Thomas Aquinas in Rome, a university under the direct authority of the Holy See. Sister Laurel has been on the faculty of Aquinas College in Nashville, Tennessee, for some time, and is a widely respected theologian, particularly in Pope John Paul II’s theology of the body. Sister’s website features a number of free video courses on family and sexuality. In those presentations Sister is kind, prayerful, and patient. She is obviously an excellent scholar and teacher.

But woe to Sister Laurel. She has crossed swords with what Michael Voris calls the “Church of Nice,” and a firestorm has erupted.

The Unanticipated Effects of LGBT Utopia — Michael Stopa

 

Liberalism is, in its essence, Utopian. Every liberal policy, no matter how trivial, points to the bright horizon of a better day, like the vanishing points in a surreal de Chirico painting. That liberals can’t agree amongst themselves about the particulars of their earthly paradise — other than that it will be harmoniously rainbow-colored and that we will all eat locally grown produce — does not undermine their faith in it. The arrow of time is taking us to some final society that, whatever it contains, is bound to be just swell.

The fact that Utopia, as they conceive i,t would be mind-numbingly boring does not disturb liberal composure. They don’t, after all, have to live in it. They are driven to construct it — and driven to heights of grandiosity — by their profound incapacity to cope with their own mortality.
