Catholic Voting Wars

To my fellow Catholic friends voting for Romney because of the pro-life issue: Hope you know you’re not a top Republican priority. The GOP’s main constituency is a collection of mostly non-church going rich businessmen and Wall Street frat boys who, when they’re not running around drinking and carousing and burying dead hookers in the … Continue reading

The Blind Faith of Atheism

If archeologists discovered the actual bones of Jesus, I would stop believing on the spot, since that would disprove the Easter story and render Christianity at heart a fraudulent religion. Sure, there are sophisticated liberal protestants who say the resurrection was not really real, but rather a warm fuzzy in the hearts of the apostles … Continue reading

Dear Conservative Catholics: Stop Worrying About Moral Relativism (Quick Rant)

3 Bible Books Summarized in 7 Words or Less

Ecclesiastes – “Shit happens, and then you die.” Job – “God, how does the sausage get made?” Song of Songs – “Your breasts are like two fawns. Hehe.” In all seriousness, though, I think these three books contain the entirety of human wisdom. Ecclesiastes tells us that life is meaningless…it’s all a chasing after the … Continue reading

In Defense of Anonymity: I’m Keith Hernandez’s Mustache and You’re Not

I’m Keith Hernandez’s mustache and you’re not.* I like bad baseball teams and good beer. *Note: I’m not affiliated in any way with the real Keith Hernandez. I’m another pseudonymous blogger. And why? Because somewhere there’s a writer talking about the gritty intangibles of David Eckstein or the clubhouse winning smile of Jeff Francoeur or … Continue reading
