So Why Be Religious?

The Catholic Path

This is my first blog ever, and yes I am freaking out. Either only my cat Peanut will read this, or maybe a few more people will. If a few more people decide to read it, well I just want to let you know why I made this blog. I made this blog because a few years ago an old man shakily poured water on me, muttered some words, and then proceeded to rub oil on my forehead. Yes, extremely strange ritual. No, I was not being inducted into a secret club, no I was not being cooked for dinner. As it happens, I was becoming a member of the Catholic Church.

Mark Levin Blasts Fox News for Attacking Ted Cruz: Do They Want Jeb Bush for President? | PJ Tatler

Particularly certain hosts. But I have to wonder: if Ronald Reagan was running in 1976 starting in ’75 against Gerald Ford, how most of the people at Fox would treat him. Because to my great dismay – as I was preparing for the program, I had my favorite cable network on – and a number of the people were trashing Ted Cruz. Not enough experience, he’s too young, too conservative, needs a bigger tent, he’s down in the polls… These people are neophytes. Neophytes. They’ve never fought in Republican primaries for conservative candidates. They don’t even take the time to learn the history of this country or the Republican Party. And I am convinced that if Reagan were alive today and Gerald Ford were live today, and we were doing a rerun of 1975-1976, Reagan would be trashed all over our favorite cable channel.
