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. Be sure to go to the end and watch the video too.

At Philly.com, the list of Trump's Catholic advisors is a mix of establishment Republican types like former Ambassador Jim Nicholson, and others who have caused great harm to the Church, the Republic or both, like Austen Ruse and Richard Viguerie. I wish Angela Flood had been identified by her current job, and not as a "Former Director, Secretariat for Communications, Archdiocese of Washington." Please leave my archdiocese out of it.

Glad to be back. I was abroad for a bit, leading a seminar on Catholic Social Teaching in the land of my ancestors, Poland. Thanks to our host at the European Centre of Communication and Culture and to the participants from several eastern European countries. It was a joy to share time and tales with our brothers and sisters in the faith and, let me tell you: They are terrified by the prospect of a Trump presidency in that part of the world. For them, NATO is a gift and Putin is a threat and a menace.
