    Hello. Over at Legal insurrection is a post on making Monday, Labor Day, Empty Chair day. I like it. A real statement on the undermining of work and responsibility expressed so well by Clint Eastwood. Pass it on and think of doing it in your lawn. A plain old empty chair, plastic or otherwise. "That’s what reader Sandy writes: Prof – Seems that there is an effort to make Monday 'empty chair day'” http://legalinsurrection.com/2012/09/monday-empty-chair-day/

    To begin, I must state that I do not know what it was that led to the banning of Verdugo from Free Republic. It is quite possible he said something absolutely outrageous. However, if this is the case, I am unaware of it. I also wish to state that I do not in the least dispute the right of Jim Robinson to ban anyone from this site--his private property--at any time for any reason. However, I believe the banning of Verdugo was an injustice and I wish to protest it. I hope everyone who reads this will recall that my...
  • Get this into your thick skulls, liberal hacks: Mel Gibson is not a Roman Catholic

    The final meltdown of Mel Gibson has come at a convenient time for Catholic-baiters in the media. The guy threatens violence against women, he’s a racist and he’s a CATHOLIC! Here’s Lucy Mangan in The Guardian, stooping almost as low as Gibson: Received wisdom is that Gibson cannot recover from this. But one course is still open to him. If ever priesthood beckoned a man, it is surely now. At least he apparently saves his violence for adult females. And if you don’t understand that last dig, let me point you to Times columnist Caitlin Moran, who explained on Thursday...
  • Could the Heresy of Various Popes regarding Salvation Help Exonerate the Jansenists?

    Modern Traditionalists generally admit the last five popes to have been heretics. Many of them - including Father Feeney, Saint Benedict Center, Most Holy Family Monastery and RJMI - consider popes from before Vatican II to have issued heretical statements. Could, then those popes who condemned Jansenism have been heretical? We shall consider this a step at a time.

    The Eagle-Tribune ^ | February 02, 2007 | By Yadira Betances , Staff Writer
    LAWRENCE - A controversial offshoot of the Catholic religion is planning to hold its worship services in the vacant Sacred Heart Church. The Willing Shepherds of Jesus Christ, whose members adhere to pre-Vatican II teachings and rituals, has signed a 15-year lease for the church at 321 S. Broadway. The order, which lists an address in Tewksbury on its Web site, celebrates Mass in Latin with the priest facing the altar instead of the congregation during services. The order is renting the Gothic-style church and its adjacent rectory from ETC Development Corp. of Boston, which bought the two-acre property last...

But that has not ended the confusion... "It has been very well observed that there is no such thing as an impartial historian.

    Open Letter to Catholic Family News on Sedevacantism by Joseph C. Maurer August 30, 2005 OPPOSITION TO THE ANTI-SEDEVACANTISTS As a long time subscriber to Catholic Family News (CFN) I was both shocked and puzzled by the lengthy article by Christopher Ferrara in the August ’05 issue attacking sedevacantists—or, the “Enterprise”, as he calls them collectively. It is understandable that there might be differences of opinion and spirited debate on the subject of sedevacantism but I never imagined I would see an article in CFN that exhibited such a steady stream of personal disparagement, insult and mean-spirited hectoring. What ever...

    Lidless-Eye Inquisition ^ | 10-03-05 | Pete Vere
    Of Canons and Culture Sedevacantists at the Gates? Pete Vere Almost fifteen years ago, I assisted at a Tridentine liturgy for the first time. I was seventeen and the liturgy was offered by an old French-Canadian priest who always insisted upon high Mass. The Latin chant, the golden vestments, the rich scent of incense accompanying our prayers to Heaven – this Mass was the most reverent experience I had ever shared. From that day forward I was a traditional Catholic. Although many will find this hilarious, another year passed before I discovered that the traditionalist movement also existed among English-speaking...

    TraditionalMass.org ^ | Fr. Anthony Cekada
    THE CARDBOARD POPE… Mr. Ferrara advocates essentially the same position as the Society of St. Pius X, Fr. Nicholas Gruner, and countless others: You claim to “recognize” Paul VI, John Paul I, John Paul II and Benedict XVI as true popes. At the same time YOU decide which papal teachings, laws, sacramental rites, or commands are good, and which you’ll reject, resist or publicly denounce. Under this system, a pope no longer possesses the supreme authority to “bind and loose” on earth. A New Jersey lawyer, the Superior General of SSPX, the CEO of the Fatima Industry, the editor of...

The election, remarks John of St. Thomas, may be invalid when carried out by persons not qualified, or when, although effected by persons qualified, it suffers from defect of form or falls on an incapable subject, as for example one of unsound mind or unbaptized. But the peaceful acceptance of the universal Church given to an elect as to a head to whom it submits is an act in which the...

    The Local Church of Rome By Joseph Clifford Fenton According to the divine constitution of Our Lord's kingdom on earth, membership in that kingdom, the universal Church militant, normally involves membership in some local or individual brotherhood within the universal Church. These individual brotherhoods within the Catholic Church are of two kinds. First there are the various local Churches, the associations of the faithful in the different individual regions of the earth. Then there are the religiones, assemblies of the faithful organized unice et ex integro for the attainment of perfection on the part of those who are admitted into...
