A Little Teeny Tiny Note

with 2 comments

I know–no post, or two or three in a day.  What can I say?

Anyway, the main one is Parental Units, but I wanted to make note of the fact that I have seen Shadia Drury’s latest column–if you go to the Free Inquiry website, they still have the old issue up, unfortunately–

Anyway, I’ve seen it, and she maintains her status as a fact-free zone.

This time it’s that all that talk about Lenin and Stalin persecuting religious people was…well, exaggerated. 

No, I’m not kidding.  She really said that.

Along the way, she implied that the Catholic Church has been “undone” by the priest sex abuse scandals.

I’d suggest we not disturb her peace by pointing out that Catholicism is actually growing internationally and remains the world’s largest religious body–but we don’t have to hold back.

She wouldn’t listen to actual facts under any circumstances.

  1. Some things I read make me wonder if I live in the same universe as the author. I know about – I even often enjoy – new ideas and viewpoints, but every so often I encounter someone pontificating about something I’m actually familiar with, and I wonder whether I’m completely out of touch with reality, or is it the writer who’s out of touch with reality? And if it’s the writer, how does s/he get paid for producing that stuff?

  2. Listen, nearly every day I see some boob who has a slick line of patter, whether they’re new agey gurus, religious flim-flammers, authors of self-help bushwa, or boiler-room salesmen of phony get-rich-yeah-right investments, and I think I’m in the wrong business. Lots of unscrupulous and/or just plain stupid people getting rich out there, and I’m working my ass off and getting nowhere fast.

    There ain’t no justice, some days.
