Maybe It's the Nature of the Job and Not HR's Fault

Why women should not be put in positions of authority - Oakland police bombshells: Racist texts, latest chief steps down:

“I take ownership of my mistakes,” the mayor said Friday. “I hope I have been clear in what my intentions are.”

Meanwhile, the mayor has set her sights on significantly changing the department — ending what she says is a disgusting frat culture, even as the department has been under federal oversight for the last 13 years.

“We have a department with almost no women, no LGBT people, and a dramatic underrepresentation of people of color,” Councilwoman Rebecca Kaplan told The Chronicle. She is pushing for reforms that would require Oakland’s police force to rethink its hiring and recruiting strategies.

Has the "councilwoman" considered that Oakland may not be the sort of city where women want to work as police officers, preferring other cities that are less dangerous or risky to their careers? Probably not.

He's Too Fabulous

Nah, he disrupts their narrative. Why Is @Nero Being Ignored by Mainstream Media?

If True, the Retconning is Complete

STAR WARS RUMORS!! Juicy Ones!! Is Rey A Skywalker?? Or Perhaps Much More??

Rey as the One -- not Anakin, not Luke, not a man, but a girl. Star Wars as a franchise is not longer a coming-of-age story for a young man, but Penis Envy writ large. Certainly, that's how the Jar-Jar Abrams movie seemed. Luke was an incompetent Jedi teacher who left to sulk after one of his students killed all of his other students. Now we will have a woman who will fix everything!

Not so surprising if you know that one of the contributors is Catholic (though sedevacantist, I believe)

The More Superhero Story Producers Adhere to the SJW Agenda

The greater the reaction against them will be, to the point that no self-respecting male will want to be associated with their products. Which is worse in this regard, DC or Marvel?

Which Germany Does She Represent?

Sebastian Junger Has a New Book Out

Tribe: On Homecoming and Belonging

Jack Donovan reviews it: Tribalism is Not Humanitarianism - STW Episode 17

If Donovan's characterization of the book is correct, then it certainly does fall short of the truth about tribes and community.

New Trailer for Ben Hur

With the website's recent track record, it's surprising that one of the regular contributors is panning the movie based on the trailer.

I thought it was actually a bit better than the first trailer, even if the portrayal of Christ as a hippie with a message about love is poorly done, at least as it is reflected in the trailer.

Catholic Feminism is Still Feminism

CWR: Kimberly Hahn: Wife, Mother, Author—and Local Politician
"During the course of the campaign, we knocked on over 8,000 doors, out of a possible 9,500. I campaigned the night before the election well into the darkness."
By Jim Graves

Kimberly Hahn, a respected Catholic author and wife of theologian and well-known speaker and author Scott Hahn, has entered the world of local politics. Running as a Republican reformer in an old mill town long dominated by Democrats, she won a seat on the Steubenville, Ohi...

Comments: So if natural law points to patriarchy, what do we make of Scott Hahn's theology? Tainted by ignorance or bad cultural habits (the white-knighting in his commentary on Genesis and the sin of Adam is bad)? Or a greater defect?

Note too that this is probably implicitly sanctioned by Opus Dei as well if Hahn is still associated with the group.

The Machine Chugs Along

Address by Coptic Bishop

CWR Blog: Is Patriotism a Virtue? by Jerry Salyer
The fact that so few public figures openly challenge the value of patriotism indicates not a genuine consensus in favor of patriotism, but only that few public figures have given much thought to what patriotism actually is.

Carly Fiorina at the Napa Institute

WHY? Plus Marjorie Dannenfelser. Fiorina is a feminist, pure and simple. Does Ms. Dannenfelser know the truth about how radical "first-wave" feminism really was? Seeking to advance female politicians is bad enough.

Latin Catholics need to get their heads straight.

A Passion of the Christ Sequel???

It's not April 1...

Stupid Remake

No Mel, it's not the same... and a Wayans brother doesn't make up for it.

And there's a show based on a Marky Mark movie:
