For Whom the Blog Tolls.

1.  The purpose of this blog is to advocate for the authentic springtime of the Catholic Church foretold by Pope John Paul II; and, particularly, in Alaska.

It is to advocate for a government that edifies, rather than attacks, the family.

It is for families, mothers, and children.

It is for good beer, good friends, and good conversation.

It is often about Saints for Sinners, but more often merely for Sinners, that we may cease to be so.

It is for those who have awakened to find themselves in the cratered war zone called Modernity and yearned for the cathedrals, castles, and simple hovels that Modernity destroyed.

It is for good movies, music, and art.

2.   This blog is not for any of the following:

Half-Measures

All too often, both in the Church and in the world, milquetoast “leaders” advocate for a half-poison, half-candy compromise in order to not offend anyone.  This only prolongs the agony, giving the dying man time to curse the fool who suggest he try the arsenic flavored chocolate bar.  If something is right, it is right.  If something is wrong, it is wrong.

Lies

We live in an age filled with lies — from pretty white lies, told to make someone feel better, to some of the Blackest lies in all the sad history of the human race.  You may not like it, but the following is true nonetheless:

The Church is the only Church.  Belonging to or defending Episcopagamethouniversalism just makes you look silly.  Eventually, the bill comes due.  I am not OK, and you are not OK; we are miserable sinners.  It is a baby, not a blob of tissue.    Atheism kills people, lots and lots of people.  Sometimes, Johnny is just an idiot.    Women were happier, on the whole, when they stayed home and made food, babies and trips to the grocery store.

Bad Beer
