The great thing about LifeSiteNews is that they unintentionally serve as research assistant to those of us charged with policing the culture of the Church for fanaticism. This latest is about the election warnings from a former chaplain at Ave Maria Law School. Who would have thought you would find zaniness there? It is like finding gambling at Rick's.
