Okay. Now about this blog. It's not easy to say what it's going to be, as though I had some plan and thought it would actually work. But perhaps a few words about what it's NOT:
- It is not infallible. I've read the Catechism, some of the Fathers, and a smattering of theology. I lasted about a semester and a half as a Catholic Studies major at the end of the '80s. This blog does not have an imprimatur. I'm just offering my thoughts here. If I come off authoritative, that's just me.
- It is not, to use the Monty Python phrase, "the right place for an argument." If you want a debate, go pick on an apologist.
- It is not G-rated. In the heat of the moment, I am not beyond employment of Anglo-Saxon. My humor tends toward the gallows variety. If this scandalizes you, best to find another blog to follow. If and when I post any of my fiction, be warned that my characters sometimes use very bad language (in the novel I'm writing, they use very bad language a lot. They manage to sin quite a bit, too). In such cases, I'll put them below the fold, and try to give you fair warning, but no guarantees.
- It is SOOoooooOOO NOT politically correct. I shall employ the generic masculine wherever I deem it appropriate. The John C. Wright Rule applies here: "[P]olitically Correct corrections of normal English are subject to summary deletion without comment or explanation."
Again, any questions?
Right, then. On we go!
