Madison mayor caught trying to conspire with WI's Sec. of State to stall the governor's budget until city employees got a new sweetheart contract signed.

Political artist is punished for his outrageous stances on current issues.

The FL federal judge who declared ObamaCare unconstitutional orders B.O. to appeal his ruling in seven days.  B.O. should've listened to the ageless wisdom of the Greek,s "Be careful what you ask of the gods.  You might get it."

The World's Top Ten Gaddafi Toads.  I think he forgot one.  A big One.

Liturgical abuse weakens the faith. . .I couldn't agree more!  We believe what we pray and pray what we believe.

The lovely and talented Anna Arco of the UK's Catholic Herald urges readers not to wipe off the Ash Wednesday smudge.  Long-time HA readers know my stance on this issue.  Jesus said, "Wash your face!"  However, this ain't a hill I'm willing to die on.

  1. The "equivalence" in "dynamic equivalence" is a misnomer. Frequently what you get with "dynamic equivalence" is not a translation at all, but something totally other than the original. Quite honestly, it amounts to deconstructionism.
