Appealing to a Higher Authority


NQ201601220042ZI’m not surprised that a religious person would make his spiritual advisor aware of a stressful problem such as ongoing harassment from the Cabin Boy™. I’d be more surprised if Patrick Grady hadn’t sought spiritual support from his church family. I have from mine. Bill Schmalfeldt has no idea how many people are praying for him and the people he harasses and for justice.

The Cabin Boy™ claims to be a Catholic. I wonder how long it’s been since he went to confession and actually confessed?

Quote of the Day


Blessed is he who loves and does not therefore desire to be loved; blessed is he who fears and does not therefore desire to be feared; blessed is he who serves and does not therefore desire to be served; blessed is he who behaves well toward others and does not desire that others behave well toward him; and because these are great things, the foolish do not rise to them.

—Giles of Assisi

Bitterly Clinging to Their …


… false narrative. The Left in Germany is having trouble dealing with the fallout from the New Year’s Eve sex crimes in Cologne and other cities. John Hinderaker has a post about the elite’s resistance to the unraveling of their narrative about recent immigrants.

Europe’s leftists are clinging bitterly to their illusions, in some instances actually trying to excuse the sex criminals. Some city officials have issued recommendations for how young women should act to avoid “provoking” rapists from “other cultures.” Will non-elite Europeans put up with such nonsense? I doubt it. In Europe, even more than in the U.S., fundamental transformation through mass immigration is a policy that the elites just can’t sell.

Read the whole thing.

UPDATE—There’s something to be said for General Charles Napier‘s method of dealing with “other cultures” and their treatment of women.

UPDATE 2—Broken link fixed.
