Two Cheers for Theocracy
by Joe Sobran
August 25
, 2016

[SOBRAN’S THE REAL NEWS OF THE MONTH Classic, February 1999] — I grew up in a theocracy. I didn’t realize it as a boy; in fact I never heard it described that way. The only reason I now know it was a theocracy is that people who want to restore the America of the Fifties — anti-abortion Catholics, the “Christian Right” — are accused of wanting to establish a theocracy.

The Wit and Wisdom of a “Most Gloriously Judgmental” Man
A review of Subtracting Christianity: Essays on American Culture and Society,
a collection of essays by the late Joseph Sobran
by Fr. Peter M. J. Stravinskas

Subtracting Christianity
[Special from The Catholic World Report] — In 1980, as a priest not yet thirty years of age, I found myself placed in charge of developing local chapters of the Catholic League for Religious and Civil Rights on the entire eastern seaboard. Those were heady days with Pope John Paul II truly coming into his own and determined to correct course for the Catholic Church and President Ronald Reagan seeking to do the same for the United States and, by extension, for the world.

Clinton's Gut Issue
by Joe Sobran
August 11
, 2016

[Classic: November 18, 1997] — There is no popular demand for war with Iraq or anyone else, and President Clinton knows it. The pressure for war is coming from the usual quarters: those who, for various reasons, want the United States to dominate the Middle East.

[Classic: April 8, 1999] — As he ordered the bombing of Kosovo, Bill Clinton assured the nation that he has been “reading up on the history of that area.” That’s a load off! The great war-time presidents have always realized that before you bomb a country, you should read up on it.

The Flying Clintons

Hustler: The Clinton Legacy
[Classic: July 1996] — I keep catching myself hoping that Bill Clinton will be reelected. It isn't just that Bob Dole richly deserves to lose; it's that mere electoral defeat would be an inadequate comeuppance for the Clintons. They are headed for their own Watergate, and it would be a pity to see the drama aborted. I'm only moderately vindictive: I want them hounded out of office, not hounded after they've already left.

The Selfless President
by Joe Sobran
July 21
, 2016

Ever the moral ham, Clinton continues to feign contrition, laying it
on a little thicker with each attempt. Every time he sheds his skin,
he wants us to believe he’s no longer a snake.

[Classic: January 21, 1996] — Bill Clinton is a New Democrat again. Having tarred the Republicans as extremists, he is filching their themes, thereby displaying one of his defining qualities: an utter incapacity for embarrassment.

Diane Speaks His Piece
by Joe Sobran
July 13
, 2016

[Classic: October 19, 2004] — I have no idea who “Diane” is, but his e-mail message sounds angry with me. In fact, Diane says he is “deeply offended” by the “pure bigotry” of my column of September 21, “Equality Run Amok,” which he finds “demeaning.”

You may think Diane is an odd name for a guy, but that’s Diane’s point. He claims to be a woman, “simply a woman,” and identifies himself, in case you haven’t already guessed, as a “transsexual.”

Equality Run Amok
by Joe Sobran
July 6
, 2016

[Classic: September 21, 2004] — In a recent column, I made an observation about the vocal “gay community” that may bear amplification.

On the one hand, these advocates tell us - us presumptive “straights” - that people’s “sexual orientation” should be of no concern to us.

Then they turn around and tell us that their “orientation” is the most important thing in the world to them - the very source of their “identity” and a matter of “pride.”

The Infernal Presidency
by Joe Sobran
June 29
, 2016

Hustler: The Clinton Legacy
[Classic: May 22, 1997] — Americans are traditionally taught that any boy can grow up to be president, and nobody has taken that idea to heart like William Jefferson Clinton. Dreaming of greatness, he didn't foresee that his presidency would be consumed by such questions as: Just how bad is this president? Will he be impeached? Will his wife go to jail?

The Metaphysics of the Bathroom
by Robert R. Reilly
June 22
, 2016

Making Gay Okay WASHINGTON, D.C. — Tempers are running high over the transgender bathroom debate. Who could have imagined a few years ago that we would need to discuss the appropriate destination for the body’s evacuative functions according to gender, or that the controversy would be addressed in terms of justice and human rights instead of common sense?

How, exactly, could this have come about? The Encyclopedia of Surgery claims that “the number of gender reassignment procedures conducted in the United States each year is estimated at between 100 and 500.” Though no doubt there are more self-identified transgenders who do not have surgery, the numbers remain socially insignificant.

Is There Hope?
by Robert L. Hale
June 22
, 2016

MINOT, ND — One thing is certain — the extent of people’s capacity for ignorance and hypersensitivity cannot be underestimated.

A harsh statement? I know. As one among billions on earth, I would like to offer my advice for the billions (I hope) of normal, rational, thoughtful, secure, and balanced humans who must live among the ignorant and hypersensitive.
