Blowing out the cobwebs

First up is a collection of links for my various monomanias.


Which it’s the plain truth

Matthew Lickona makes Mel Gibson say:

No, the Catholic Church is rehab. It’s a halfway house for people who are just smart enough to know they’re fucked up, and just dumb enough to hope there’s something that can be done about it short of getting their own shit together or blowing their brains out. They know they can’t make it out in the world on their own, so they come here for support. Meetings on Sunday. There’s rules posted by the door, but nobody really checks to make sure you’re in compliance.
