Another lament about the state of the conservative blogosphere from Dr William Oddie at the Catholic Herald. Dr Oddie on his own writing: More and more, my heart just isn’t in it; and I blog less than I did. Now, … Continue reading
I followed a Catholic Herald link to these Rorate Caeli musings that it now, somehow, open season on conservatives. Whatever that means. Church politics is always complex. I suspect that it might be less a shift and more about a … Continue reading
It’s a nice image, I suppose, multiple tons of locomotive daring to drive where no rail has gone before. Blogger John Vennari, who’s been cited on a handful of sites as the poster boy for Francis Derangement Syndrome: Though this … Continue reading
Damon Linker concedes he got it wrong about liberals and Pope Francis: I was far more skeptical that the new pope would attempt to reform or revise church doctrine … Liberals would therefore have to settle for a moderation of papal … Continue reading

Thanks to Rocco tweet-whispering my skeptical take on Rochester-is-progressive, this site enjoyed a top day for views yesterday. Still, people looking for readings for their wedding, or for a funeral topped the Rochester musings. So I haven’t been a total … Continue reading
I was reading RNS’s quote of the day from Deal Hudson. I don’t want to be called a “Conservative Catholic” anymore. That caught my eye. There’s a short piece in Catholic Online, and here’s a little more perspective: Labels in … Continue reading
There’s no letting up in the blogosphere on the Pope Francis “Who am I to judge?” comment. What does it mean? Is it just tone, or is it content, too? Mark Silk hammers away at conservative commentary. The piece I … Continue reading
