Thomas Aquinas On American Conservatives' Continual Commission Of Sin

American "conservative" landing another sardine... 
and already fashioning his next "fish story."


"Conservatives Scare More Easily Than Liberals"

Dear F,

Thanks for your email.

I knew that moving the Vatican embassy would be The GOP's "next Benghazi" but I had not heard that Jeb Bush --- who converted to Catholicism "behind" his Mexican-American wife's lead --- had also decided to make a fool of himself.

Jeb is a fairly likable guy and it dismays me to hear he's carrying water for The Manifestly Unhinged.

                                                                              "The Bogus Claim That Obama Is 'Closing' The Vatican Embassy"

Aquinas observed that "sin" is always accompanied by loss of perspective/proportion.

With that measure in mind, note that contemporary conservatives devote themselves --- 24/7 and "bleeding at the eyes" --- to the absolute prohibition of perspective and proportion.

If Aquinas is right, Republicans are single-mindedly dedicated to round-the-clock commission of sin.

The deliberate destruction of perspective-and-proportion is not only American "conservatism's" daily bread but the one and only well at which "conservatives" drink.

Self-cultivated delusion is the warp and weft of their lives.

Mostly the warp.

Dear A

Did you hear about Jeb Bush’s tweet that Obama must be anti Catholic because the U.S. embassy to the Vatican  was moved from its location to a more secure location near the Italian embassy (.1 mi. closer to the Vatican).

Heard that on Hardball



Fact: The chances of an American being killed in a terror attack are lower than being struck by lightning...
