Not joking. Deadly serious. At the airport.— Aaron Clarey (@aaron_clarey) May 31, 2019
Just saw an Amish girl and was like "dang, she's hot."
Then I realized, she's not really that hot. She's just in a dress, has no tattoos, is simply kept and that American women are so ugly I'M STARTING TO THINK AMISH IS HOT!!! #fuck

Rod Dreher: Sohrab Ahmari Vs. David French
Wednesday, May 29, 2019
Nobody knew quite where studying sociology would take me. The famous philosopher, Monsignor Ivan Illich, had urged me to focus on sociology. He was a great scholar, a genius. He was like “a river without banks,” as someone once described him to me. He later left the ministry, and yet he had an influence on Latin American thought in a very special way. Some said, “Go and study sociology as an academic discipline so you can go teach in the seminary.” And others said, “Go and look at it as a research tool, so you can work in the chancery.” And others said, “You can build on sociology as a means of working with the poor, and then you can come and work with Catholic Charities.” And ultimately, I tried to do all three.Not a very big connection.

Sandro Magister: Europe At the Polls. But the Church Must Also Decide On Its Future
Honored to have been asked to provide a blurb for the English edition of Cardinal Sarah's new book--— Sohrab Ahmari (@SohrabAhmari) May 27, 2019

True Reform Will Come — If You and I Remain Steadfast by Msgr. Charles Pope
As the U.S. Bishops’ June meeting draws near, it’s time for faithful Catholics to regain our focus
Given the continuing breakdown of all traditional roles and failure of the bishops to police themselves, the question is whether the laity should be doing anything else in addition to prayer. According to one model of church authority, no. But what does our Lord want? What if He expects the laity to have a part as well? What if the problem is clericalism, just not in the way outlined by the current bishop of Rome? We pray for our sake, but we may also petition for our Lord to bring about reform through men, but will we recognize authentic reform if our leaders cling absolutely to old institutional structures and practices in the name of "Tradition," failing to differentiate between what size divinely given or instituted from what was initiated or adopted through human positive law (if we can even assume that such law was legitimate or valid in the first place).
