Immigration crazy idea of the day

Put visa issuance under the Bureau of Land Management, with orders to divest the federal government of as much land as possible.  Use homesteading rules- and only allow people in who are willing to work to improve the land over 5 years.

Synergistic solutions for a damaged Church

Several good Bishops have a bad problem- generations of abuse and homosexuality in the seminaries have devastated the population of priests.  There is hope for the future- these Bishops who are willing to embrace transparency and action on abuse cases are rewarded with an increase (sometimes a miraculous increase)  in vocations; however, the demographic hole still exists.

Due to this, many rural populations find themselves with either a closed parish or a circuit riding priest, there not being enough priests left to provide pastors for every situation.

At the same time, bad bishops, in a misguided attempt to stem the tide of ridiculously large scandals, are turning to punishing whistleblowers who dare to preach against sexuality in the priesthood (after all, only 80% of the problem is homosexuality, the rest are heterosexuals with "Secret Families"), and if they do, they are quickly removed from being pastors and either have to run for their lives or get sentenced to lives of prayer and penance in the church's equivalent of insane asylums.

Since rural populations are often far more conservative than urban populations, I suggest that an obvious solution exists.  Good Bishops on the west side of the Rockies and in the North, should accept, with some investigation, priests that cannot, for whatever reason, obtain a letter of credentials from their former bishops.  These priests should be given parishes in remote small communities, where they are likely to not only find support from parishioners, but are given a real chance at service.

This is not a job interview

I wish I could embed this.  Perhaps someday I'll find a youtube link to it.  But when defending a conservative, CNN video is a pretty good link,

This is what has gone wrong with America.

From Daniel

Thank you so much for your prayers and good wishes. Your prayers have been answered. My mother's growth has turned out to be benign. Thanks so much!

Rules to go over with my son

Rules for my son:
1.  Do not drink away from where you have a safe bed for the night.  That means home, buddy.
2.  Do not go to parties that are not chaperoned.
3.  Do not go on dates unchaperoned.
4.  While I've encouraged you to be heterosexual, in this day and age you can't touch a girl without a written and notarized agreement first detailing the relationship.  Sheldon Cooper is right.  You need a relationship agreement.

It's the only way to be safe thanks to the so-called sexual revolution.

The most Zealous man I know, is so shaken in his faith he wonders how he can stay Catholic

John Hathaway is a man with challenges.  Marfan Syndrome, Asperger's, stuck in a wheelchair.  Yet he's also a father and a very faithful Catholic.

Until today.

The rumor that Pope Francis turned away the American Bishops and are not going to let them even investigate the cardinal sins of homosexuality in the seminaries, has broken my heart and his.

The Year of Mercy is over.  Judgement Day has arrived.  Are your sins in order?
