Piling on The Shrine

Let T&A add its voice to those ruffled by the latest Jacobin assault at The Shrine of the Holy Whapping.

They really shouldn't be rewarded with so much free advertising, but this is too much fun.

Apparently, monarchism is a sin, and can be found with schism, heresy, and anti-Semitism. We know what kind of heresy too, not the standard Unitarian or even, say, Wycliffian types; this is the Trad Heresy!

Oh, you know the one, the one that, if you agree with HHBXVI that Vatican II was pastoral and not dogmatic, YOU ARE A HERETIC. Of course, this is unforgivable, whereas we invite real heretics and schismatics over for Inter-faith Prayer Breakfasts and yap endlessly about how the Holy Spirit works through them, too. Or just blow smoke up their dresses.

Is anyone else bored with people who are "so traditional," but still socially acceptable? I suppose if you're going to have tea with William Donohue and Tom Monahan you can't be a monarchist. It's bad form, chap.

Disclaimer: I don't read The Shrine that much anymore, so they may not be guilty of all of the charges of banality I'm hurling at them. Mea culpa. But they tried for a cheap laugh at our expense. So there.

Don't you mean "latest Jacobin assault"? Jacobites were good guys.

Wow, I'm a dummy. Dummy dummy dummy ...

Jacobin/Jacobite is like Medicare/Medicaid. Stuck my foot in my mouth a few times on that one at work (insurance sales).

The best way to remember it is: "Jacobites are men of right; Jacobins are men of sin."
