Democratizing Catholicism? I think not.

How does one democratize a religion? Would the members get to vote on Church doctrine? Cardinals get to vote for the Pope, should they act like delegates as if the conclave of cardinals were some sort of political convention? Here my message for Podesta and friends: Catholic doctrine was created by Christ. It was codified a long time ago by Emperor Constantine I in the fourth century. That is the basis of the Catholic Church, now and forever, unless the Big Man Upstairs orders a change.

The “What if?” Debate

Physicists suggest that there is not a single reality, but many– where every possible scenario get plaid out. Alternate timelines where the NAZI’s win the war, where the Federation is an evil empire and so on. The alternate reality sub-genera is one of the more intriguing, the where we get an answer to the question: “What if?” What if?… Donald could actually stay on message and never put his foot in his mouth? What if?… Hillary were actually likable enough to the non-Democrat that people actually liked to hear her speak?

Trump’s Hail Mary

I'm not his biggest fan, but Trump showed me something Wednesday. He showed me that he's willing to do the hard things, he's willing to put his candidacy on the line. Meanwhile, Hillary has been MIA for most of the past fortnight. She hasn't even gone to Louisiana after both Trump and President Obama went. Baton Rouge should be mostly dry by now, will she ever go?

The Politics of Division

The politics of division is the main weapon in the Democratic arsenal. Their strategy is simple: divide and conquer. They pick a voting bloc, along any lines it doesn’t matter, give them victim status then assign a villain. Then come the promises… Give the ‘victim’ a largess, and/or take punitive action against the alleged bad guy. The oppressor is always the larger party, usually they call them ‘big’ as in ‘big oil’, or ‘big pharma’, just so you know who to blame. As an aside, you’ll never hear reference to ‘big academia’ or ‘big government’ from the left as those are clients and are thus exempt.
