New Reason for the Male Priesthood

The Sacrament of Reconciliation. I went to my son's first last night. Because he's special needs, we "broke the seal" somewhat and so I got to hear both how he did with my son and with me. In both cases, he took a very complex set of problems, found the one actionable/easy to achieve item, and attacked that item for our penance. I now realize almost *every* Sacrament of Reconciliation in my life has started out with a rant, and ended exactly the same way. And that when, outside of the confessional, I act the same way with women I get emotional support, but NO SOLUTIONS, because women's brains are not wired to find solutions. Yet another reason for the male priesthood.

The right wing gets a bit nuttier

Benghazi Attack Was Retaliation For Brennan’s Secret Al-Qaeda War:

While the article *does* have a few good points, by what stretch of the imagination is the war against Al Qaeda, declared by Bush 43 and continued by Obama, a secret?

Must be the worst kept secret in world history.

God grant rest to Papa Benedict in his retirement

And may the next Pope NOT be of European stock. The 21st Century Roman Catholic Church is worldwide- and our leadership should start reflecting that.

Latest thing heard on facebook

I won't even stoop to embarrass the person who used this bad logic, but this is the new defense against abortion being murder: Murder requires a death certificate, and since abortion clinics don't keep death certificates on the babies they abort, it isn't murder. To which I responded: Did the Nazis keep death certificates on their victims?

SignOn.org - End discrimination against pregnancy in the poor.

SignOn.org - End discrimination against pregnancy in the poor.:

The leftwingers at MoveOn asked me to start a petition- so I did.  I started one about the bigotry of Planned Parenthood and their attack on minority teenagers in Portland and Salem.  If you are pro-life, or if you are against racism, go and sign it.
