I love belonging to a politically subversive movement...

Progressives seem really threatened by Thomism.

Wikileaks lets us listen in on the anti-Catholic bigotry of the Progressives.

 Excellent point. They can throw around "Thomistic" thought and "subsidiarity" and sound sophisticated because no one knows what the hell they're talking about.

Ken Auletta's latest piece on Murdoch in the New Yorker starts off with the aside that both Murdoch and Robert Thompson, managing editor of the WSJ, are raising their kids Catholic. Friggin' Murdoch baptized his kids in Jordan where John the Baptist baptized Jesus.  Many of the most powerful elements of the conservative movement are all Catholic (many converts) from the SC and think tanks to the media and social groups.  It's an amazing bastardization of the faith. They must be attracted to the systematic thought and severely backwards gender relations and must be totally unaware of Christian democracy. //

This is what the "wedge strategy of 2012" and questions about contraceptives was always about.

I can't tell you how many times i've woken up at 3am screaming in fear of Thomism. I generally resort to a little locker room banter and usually feel much better.

Who links to me?
