Over at the blorg today: Death and Dread – Links & Comments.
Ever since I answered the irresistible call to join the Conspiracy, I’ve been floundering a bit over at Patheos. What I seem to have settled on is writing my general Catholic stuff here (of course) and over there writing the things that no one else at Patheos is likely to be saying. Which means I keep wanting to rename my blog there Token Redneck. I’m not gonna, but you can call it that when no one’s looking.
Key points from today’s post:
A difficulty Americans face is that our laws have to take into account the actual way that Americans act. . . .
. . . You can be certain that the stronger the rhetoric in favor of gun control, the stronger the turnout will be for candidates who oppose it. Hence we have Trump. (See how he spoke to his base and didn’t mention guns in his Las Vegas talk? He knows who elected him.) . . .
. . . You don’t have to think these people are right. You do have to understand that these people live in this nation, they vote, and they already own the guns. Wishing them away will not fix anything. Writing legislation as if these people aren’t there or don’t count will only exacerbate the problem.
Trust me. I’m from Gunlandia. I know.
This picture is not exactly related to the topic of the post, other than that of course I talk about the battle with evil, so there’s that. I just liked the picture. To get the full effect, click on the detailed image.
Useful tip: To see what I’ve been writing at the blorg, check the sidebar of this blog (jenniferfitz.com). Scroll down a little, you’ll see I’ve got the feed of my Patheos posts right there waiting for you. Easy peasy.
