Gnostic Nun, Cyborg Catholicism

sentinelblog

From The American Conservative, by Rod Dreher, Oct 30, 2015

It looks like maverick Villanova theologian Katie Grimes has some interesting company on the theology faculty at the Catholic university. Sister Ilia Delio, a Franciscan nun, has been awarded an endowed chair in Christian theology there. She looks forward to transhumanism changing the Catholic Church. Excerpts from her essay:

It is interesting that a male, hierarchical church shares common ground with the male aims of science and technology. Could it be that science and religion are instilled with the same utopian ideal, the restoration of Adam to his divine perfection? Is it possible that each area is focused on the same goal and thus can respectfully keep one another at arm’s length? After all, what would be the point of the church embracing modern science and thus opening up to evolution and gender complementarity, if evolution points to…

Unavailing = Manure

Dave Alexander & Company with David Edgren and Gus Bailey - The Artisan Craft Blog

Bess Truman was once asked by the women covering the First Lady if she would kindly ask President Truman to stop using the word “manure” in public.  Mrs. Truman responded by saying “you have no idea how long it took me to get him to start saying “manure.”  Or something like that.

Apparently lawyers have a gentler term for horseshit.

From Hogewash, a part of the Hunton and Williams LLC latest motion to dismiss the RICO2 Electric Boogaloo case:

unavailing

“Sorry, I was late for dinner, ma.  I stepped in some unavailing, and had to scrape it off.”

Republican Presidential Candidates Hold Third Debate In ColoradoUPDATE: BEN CARSON CALLS OF CHANGE IN FORMAT!!!

I just thought I would mention that.

And last night those of us who haven’t even thought of CNBC in 20 years remembered why we deserted it just as soon as there was an available alternative.

But here is a short refresher.

Okay, the entire GOP field had a good night, and we all knew that any NBC brand would be biased.

But why was Reince Priebus shocked?

What, he didn’t see this coming?

Scheduling CNBC for a debate had to be the dumbest move the RNC has made since Michael Steele bused Young Republicans to a lesbian sex show.

For years I have been asking a dumb question. It must be dumb because no one else is asking it. Okay, Roger L. Simondid asked it in 2012, but no one took him seriously either.

Why does the RNC continue to…

Hillary Cuts the Cheese

Regular Right Guy

Hillary-Clinton-explains-665x385Hillary Clinton was on Stephen Colbert last night. On CBS? The guy who pretends to be funny playing a dumb Republican?

Anyway, Hillary met TV gourmand Anthony Bourdain backstage in the green room, and her campaign thought we’d all like to know about it.

Which I suppose is news when your supporters are made up of low-information Jerry Springer fans and people who watch “Naked and Afraid.”

Watch while Hillary explains her experience with all things cheese to a guy who just wants to plug his book and get out of there. This is real people stuff, people.

…stuffed in things…

President? Really?

I wonder if Hillary knows that Anthony Bourdain and wildlife terrorist…

Here’s the first post I did about Brett Kimberlin.

Mr. Kimberlin was unwise in choosing to pick a fight with the blogosphere. He is likely to find that, while we don’t always agree with one another, we have each other’s backs when the freedom of the Internet is threatened. Mr. Kimberlin and those who have supported him (I’m looking at you, Ms. Streisand) have bitten off more than they can chew. The pushback is just beginning.

UPDATE–The McCain family is having a ton of unforeseen expenses because of their sudden move. I just hit his tip jar. Why don’t you?

UPDATE 2–Expect…

Benghazi Hero Sean Smith’s Mother Explodes on Andrea Mitchell

Regular Right Guy

Screen-Shot-2015-10-26-at-6.55.36-PM-1024x578It’s always difficult for me to watch Patricia Smith because she has fought such a heartbreaking and fruitless battle to get answers for her non-combatant son, Sean’s, tragic death on that horrendous night on 9-11-2011 in Benghazi.

Here she is being schooled by MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell on why Sean had to die.

Smith: I think they should have covered his back… there were people that were available… they were told to stand down… until three brave men disobeyed orders…

Mitchell: I know there’s been a lot of dispute… but the fact is the closest military was hours and hours away…

Smith: [It took] nine hours for this thing to be over.Somebody should be able to go there… You can’t understand, you just can’t understand!

Neither do we.

And the only one who does has perhaps already provided us with the best answer we will ever get…

Four Dead in OSU Crash

Regular Right Guy

dm_151024_ncf_oklahoma_state_crash_update_defaultThe horrible crash at Oklahoma State University yesterday has claimed the life of another victim, this one a two-year-old child. Four more parade-goers remain critical and a dozen or so are in serious condition.

CNN:

I know this is Golf Weekend, but we haven’t heard President Obama call for sweeping new legislationso we can keep automobiles out of the hands of people who shouldn’t have them.

Maybe Air Force One is being fueled, like it was before the cordite cleared the air in Aurora and Charleston and UCC. Or am I being too quick to politicize this?

I may have missed it but I haven’t seen a Washington Post op-ed this morning blaming white Americans for senseless traffic deaths.

Could it be that our liberal moral and ethical betters haven’t noticed that there are an average 35,000 automobile deaths annually, roughly the same number as firearms deaths? Or that…
