The Consequences of Belief

About six months ago, a university student posing as a potential donor called a number of Planned Parenthood offices expressly requesting that his donation be used to pay for the abortion of black babies. The media picked up the story and Americans - for a moment - were outraged. American life has since been punctuated by any number of outrages and, in between, we continue to live out the mundane sentences of our lives. So why raise the issue again? Two reasons: one is that this story, though I’m sure it captured bandwidth, is not an isolated media incident; rather it reveals the long-term selective extermination of certain persons who, not too long before, had not been persons at all. The Civil War lives on…and on.

Faith and Reason: A Great New Schism

How our misunderstanding of faith's relationship to works is rendering the Church impotent in the face of Christ's enemies.
Some of us have heard of the Great Schism. It is not much known anymore, but it was a great watershed event in western history. By some estimates, it marks one of the great calamities our civilization. And for that reason, we should take stock, and learn from our mistakes.

Losing the Culture War

Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;
Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,
The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere
The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
The best lack all conviction, while the worst
Are full of passionate intensity.

--W.B.Yeats

Time Out of Joint

Rest, rest, perturbed spirit! So, gentlemen,
With all my love I do commend me to you:
And what so poor a man as Hamlet is
May do, to express his love and friending to you,
God willing, shall not lack. Let us go in together;
And still your fingers on your lips, I pray.
The time is out of joint: O cursed spite,
That ever I was born to set it right!
Nay, come, let’s go together.
[Hamlet: Act 1, Scene 5]
