Coffee Bowl Browsing

An assessment of the WikiLeaks leaks.  A German friar here told me yesterday that the leaks--especially the frank descriptions of E.U. leaders--are embarrassing precisely b/c they are true!  Ah, the truth shall set you free.

And here are just a few of the more frank assessments. . .wouldn't we all love to read what world leaders think of our national leadership?

As a classical political liberal, this sort of thing doesn't bother me at all.  As a Catholic and a Dominican, my response is:  "Celebrate Faith & Reason.  The Best God Has To Offer!"  When atheists argue that religious belief is "irrational," what they mean is that religious belief fails to satisfy the methodological demands of materialist science. 

Americans want and expect ObamaCare to be repealed

A new website for all your Catholic punditry needs:  The Pulpit.

Classical Rhetoric 101. . ."rhetoric" means something very different in the postmodern world.  Generally, when you read or hear someone use the word "rhetoric" they mean "the way in which an idea is framed using language to disguise their intent."

  1. Thank you Father Powell for the plug on the new Catholic newsite for punditry: The Pulpit!

    I greatly appreciate it!

    I hope you had an awesome Thanksgiving!

  2. "Men in belted sweaters" - a trend that needs to be revived, don't you think?? Ah the Seventies, my salad days!

  3. Regarding 70's fashions: It's put in the best perspective by knowing there were a lot of cheap drugs available back then.
