WordPress to Patheos, What’s Happenin’

http://www.patheos.com/blogs/publiccatholic/

Moving a blog is a little bit like moving to a new house. There’s a lot more to it than you thought about when you bought the thing.

Public Catholic Patheos will have its formal debut next Monday. I’m going to start publishing posts at Public Catholic Patheos before that. In fact, I hope to start in the next day or so. I hope you come over and look at things and give me feed-back. 

My understanding is that if you come to the old Public Catholic site you will be re-directed to the new one but that this won’t happen until everything is up and running on Patheos. Let me know if/when this starts working. 

In the meantime, the site, which will be all-singing, all-dancing in a couple of days, can be found at http://www.patheos.com/blogs/publiccatholic/ . We’re still polishing the rough edges, but go over, have a look and tell me what you think. I welcome your feedback.

Public frustration prompts new campaign for political civility :: Catholic News Agency (CNA). I think this speaks for itself. I am proud of the Knights of Columbus for doing this and will sign the petition.

Culture Warriors

I am creating the Culture Warrior Award to honor two stalwart culture warriors. These men stand for life, and they are in the fight for the long haul. They are two of Public Catholic’s finest Culture Warriors. We need more courageous blogs like theirs. You can find them at: http://nebraskaenergyobserver.wordpress.com/ and http://scpeanutgallery.com/

Stop Slogan-Voting. Stop Hate-Voting. Stop Being Manipulated. Part 2: High Dollar Campaigns = Government of the Puppet People

There are two ways to campaign for office: hire a consultant or do it yourself. Consultants cost money; lots of it. They earn this money by raising money. Like lawyers who work on contingency, campaign consultants take home a piece of the money action that the campaign generates. They also run high-dollar, glitzy campaigns that […]

Stop Slogan-Voting. Stop Hate-Voting. Stop Being Manipulated. Introduction

Stop slogan-voting. Stop hate-voting. Stop being manipulated. We are in a fight for religious freedom in America. Religious freedom is sometimes called the “first freedom.” It is, after all, enshrined in the First Amendment. But there is another reason to call it the “first freedom.” Religious freedom is the basic human freedom on which other […]

Nobody Even Cares About What’s’is Name

Read the blogs. Look at the polls. Ask your neighbors. People are planning to vote against President Obama. Other people are planning to vote for President Obama. Nobody (except maybe his family) appears to be voting either for or against What’s’is Name. You know who I’m talking about; that other guy — the billionaire I-was-one-of-the-most-aggressively-pro-abortion-governors-in-America-until-I-decided-I-wanted-to-run-for-president thingy […]
