As I did yesterday, I’m eschewing originality this time in favor of usefulness. Imagine me leaning much too close to you, and speaking like some Palestinian used car salesman when I say, “I am only trying to help you, my friend. In fact, I am losing money on this deal. Losing money! But I like your face!” Then I give your cheeks a squeeze. The ones on your face.
Today I call your attention to a magnificent piece of reasoning, and writing, but not by me. Instead it’s by Canadian Catholic missionary and musician Mark Mallett. He’s not someone I knew about before. But I was deeply impressed by his placid, bulletproof reasoning on the subject of the Dead Baby vaccine. (As I said, he’s placid, I’m not.) And further on the mind-blowing abuse of authority Pope Francis has committed, and pressured other bishops to follow, demanding that Catholics take the vaccine. (The latest wrinkle: only vaxed tourists may enter Vatican grounds, and non-vaxed employees will be fired.)
