It makes no sense. . .

Every Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday when I go to the gym at my oh-so-politically-correct public university, I am confronted by a bright red banner proclaiming the idiocy of my school. Oh yes my friend, we have a "zone" that is free from all hatred. It's mandated by the powers that be. Why is such a banner so incredibly stupid? Let me propose something that may be controversial. I think that there are lots of things that are very good to hate, and of course, the university does also, we just don't always agree about what those things may be.

For example, I think that it is good to hate things (or actions really) that are sinful. I know, I know, using the word "sinful" makes me sound like a religious fanatic. I don't mind. It's true.

The university hates intolerance. Now, hating intolerance isn't always a bad thing, depending on what you are intolerant of. I think it is good to be intolerant of (cue doomsday music) SIN! The university is intolerant of viewpoints that recognize that there is such a thing as sin, unless it's sin against the sacred cows of feminism, sodomy, affirmative action, and man made global warming. They are very intolerant of those types of viewpoints.

At least I know where I am allowed to engage in hating depravity, and where I am allowed to love white straight males who drive gas guzzling cars. The university has it clearly marked.

God Bless Principal Anne Carroll

Anne Carroll, the principal of Seton School in Manassas, Va., deserves great praise. She has broken the mold of your typical "catholic" high school. At Seton, we learned true Catholic doctrine, and while not everyone was able to appreciate what we received there (some of the female graduates will forever be bitter about having to wear skirts below their knees)I have never met anyone with a bad word to say about Mrs. Carroll. She had a way of making us want to behave well because we didn't want to disappoint her. While some other teachers might have had a bit too strong of a disciplinary bent, one conversation with Mrs. Carroll could straighten out the toughest cases. she provided balance, reason, and inspiration.

I remember meeting up with some of my grade school friends who were going to Presentation in Louisville after my second year at Seton. They told me about the "debates" about abortion they had in their religion classes, which were "non-judgemental" with no preconceived winner. What a bunch of crap. Contrast this with my experience at Seton, where we were taught the truths of the Catholic Faith, and how to defend these truths.

I was a boarding student, and there were quite a few of us, so if you are looking for a Catholic School that that is true to the Magisterium of the Catholic Church, I recommend Seton School in Manassas, Virginia.

Global Warming (booga booga booga)

Here's a link to an article on Global Warming that I found interesting. Remember . . .just because "every scientist agrees," doesn't mean that every scientist agrees...
