    The group Glitter Hole is a “drag collective” and “queer performance space,” and if you’re wondering what their name means, their logo is a purple sketch of a bare bottom with the word “HOLE” beneath it in all capitals. Their sexually explicit performances including miming sex acts, strapping on enormous fake genitalia, and other activities better left undescribed. One poster advertising their group was emblazoned with the slogan, “Keep the buggery going!” while another announced that they were “leather daddies and gay witches for abortion.” And, as the new Irish media outlet Gript recently reported, Glitter Hole was invited to...

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) on Tuesday admitted that she does not know the content of Rep. Ilhan Omar’s (D-MN) recent remarks about 9/11 — despite offering a full-throated defense of the freshman congresswoman in the wake of criticism from President Donald Trump.(LINK) Nancy Pelosi: 'We have no taint' of anti-Semitism “I don’t think the congresswoman is anti-Semitic. I wouldn’t even put those in the same category,” Pelosi told interviewer Christiane Amanpour in Ireland. “We have no taint of that [anti-Semitism],” she added. “And just because they want to accuse somebody of that doesn’t mean that we take that bait.”Pelosi...

    Gardaí (police) in Ireland have updated uniform rules to allow officers to wear hijabs and turbans, describing the supposed lack of ethnic diversity in the force as a “ticking time-bomb” that could make immigrant communities “radicalise”. The move to allow religious headwear worn by Muslim women and Sikh men was announced by Garda Commissioner Drew Harris this week, as the force launched a major recruitment drive to hire hundreds of new officers in Ireland. An Garda Síochána, the national police service, said in a statement that it had identified current uniform regulations as “a major barrier” to increasing the number...

    The Guardian (UK) ^ | Monday, March 18, 2019 | Matthew Weaver
    Cadbury has temporarily pulled its "real treasure hunt" ad campaign after archaeologists and the government accused it of advocating looting. The Treasure Island ads encouraged children to "grab your metal detector and go hunting for Roman riches", but failed to warn that digging without permission is illegal. It suggested a number of sites across the UK and Ireland where "treasure's fair game". The confectioner took the online ad site down on Monday after being inundated with messages from archaeologists who described the campaign as "irresponsible" - a view endorsed by the government. The arts minister, Michael Ellis, said the ad...

    Only stupid or insecure or misguided people become followers of Jesus, right? That is an attitude one inevitably encounters while working for a U.S. senator or representative. But then there is Professor John Lennox, the Irish mathematician from Oxford university, who not only is incredibly intelligent but also among the world’s most effective apologists for Christianity. In this interview on Britain’s Premier Christian Radio, Lennox is asked by host Justin Brierley about Christians who fear having their faith challenged by non-believers and thus keep themselves in a sort of “Christian bubble” that is separate from the world around. “Yes, it...

If that isn’t treason, what is? This jihadi says he wants to move to Ireland, but if the Irish aren’t stupid enough to let him in, he will likely become a hero of the Muslim victimhood circuit in the U.S., speaking at CAIR and ISNA conferences, demonizing the United States and slyly recruiting for jihad. “John Walker Lindh, American ex-Taliban fighter, to be released in May, hasn’t denounced Islamism,” by...

    Last Sunday was St. Patrick's Day here in Ireland, and around the world as well. (Did you know that Patrick is the patron saint of Nigeria? I didn't, until my parish priest here in rural County Clare informed us of that during his homily.) In places like New York and Boston, it's a day to celebrate Irish heritage and to get disgracefully drunk, but not in Ireland, where it's also a national holiday; until the 1960s, it was illegal to sell alcohol on Patrick's Day, as it also was to sell booze on Christmas Day and Good Friday. Further,...

    Catholic Education Resource Center ^ | March 15, 2015 | Father George W. Rutler
    Maewyn Succat did not have an easy time embracing the Faith. Although his father Calpurnius was a deacon, Maewyn indulged a spirited youthful rebellion against what he had been taught, and it was only after being kidnapped by superstitious people called Druids that he realized the difference that Christianity makes in the souls of men and the character of cultures. This was in the fifth century, and Maewyn, probably born in the Cumbria part of England near the Scottish lands, was roughly contemporary with the bishop Augustine in North Africa who watched the decay of the Roman Empire. Maewyn eventually...

    . In honor of St. Patrick's Day, lets remember captives and slaves whose sacrifice made ours lives so much better. Many don't know that Patrick was NOT Irish. He was born in Scotland and captured by the Irish when he was a teenager. Then he spread Christianity to the Irish. In the Bible, Joseph's brother's sold him into slavery. When he was later able to save his family, he told them, "What you meant for evil, God meant for Good." Thousands of years later, Squanto was captived by Europeans and taken away. Years later, after learning English, he made his...

    (This post was first published on March 17, 2015 and is being reprinted again today because I believe that it is the most important thing that we can say about St. Patrick, and for which to honor him on his Feast Day!) Has anyone created a comic book or graphic novel, St. Patrick: Demon Slayer? If not, someone should. Patrick, born in Britain — probably Scotland — around 385 A.D., went from being the teenage son of Roman British parents (some like to say “Italian”), to being kidnapped by wild Irish ruffians and brought to (Northern) Ireland as a slave....

    Church Militant ^ | March 16, 2019 | Fr. George Rutler
    St. Patrick Sparked a Fire The holy patron of our archdiocese was a contemporary of St. Augustine. While Augustine of north Africa became one of the greatest Doctors of the church, Patrick of Roman Britain humbly called himself uneducated, even though he was schooled in France by St. Germaine of Auxerre and possibly St. Martin of Tours, and was given books by Pope St. Celestine I. Patrick, after six youthful years as a slave captured by Irish pirates, embarked upon the conversion of the Druid tribes. He did not chase the snakes out of Ireland because there were none, nor...

    Ex-president says institution prizes the clerical male above women, truth, and abused childrenThe “game is almost up” for the all-male Catholic Church, former president Mary McAleese has said. She said the church’s “clericalised citadel is increasingly of zero interest to many Christian women who grow up in the Catholic tradition”. “The church prizes the clerical male above all others in the church. Above women, above truth and disgracefully above clerically abused children. The game is almost up,” she said. Mrs McAleese was speaking after an announcement by theologian Mary T Malone (80) that she is leaving the “men’s church” to...
