Believe it or not, there are people out there who want to shut down this blog in any way they can. And it's taking a fair amount of my time and energy to resist them.
But here's why I blog, and here's why I will continue to blog.
The Lying Debate of last year was, as all these debates are, frustrating and seemingly counter-productive. "Conservative" Catholics were furious that the Catechism claims that the end does not justify the means and that lying is never a good thing to do.
And now that the Obama administration is poised to destroy the Catholic Church in America, "Conservative" Catholics are howling that Obama is the spawn of Saul Alinksy, the man who taught him (and "Conservative" Catholic Folk Hero James O'Keefe) the doctrine that the end justifies the means and that lying can indeed be a good thing to do.
There's a reason why I endure scorn and protest from friends who turn into enemies because I speak out on these issues. The reason is that if we harbor and cherish errors we will be sowing the wind of bad thought and reaping the whirlwind of bad deeds.
John Vennari goes into detail on the wind of Consequentialism behind the whirlwind of President Obama here.
