    A sad state of affairs

    Deadly attacks by racists increased in momentum over the Memorial Day weekend. Nary a mention of that here.

    The Dear Leader withdraws from NATO mutual defense and for that matter, any kind of meaningful dialogue with the rest of the West. Also nary a mention.

    Instead, what appears on this forum (if you can even call it a forum) is a continual circle jerk over delusions from spiritual pornography, a cogent term recently coined by Alan Levinowitz.

    All those mutual orgasms must help you to ignore reality.

    Don't bother to reply. I'm never coming back to this shithole.

    Did you just admit that you prefer to stay in your bubble?

    Were we just scolded by a guy whose last contribution to this board was the day he left it? Good riddance.

    You're welcome to mention it. I'm just not familiar with what you're talking about, unless you mean Portland.

    I don't agree with everything Rod Dreher says, Benedict Option or otherwise, but I think Levinovoitz is being quite unfair in representing his work - and he patently misrepresented the episode in which Dreher suggested that Levinovitz compared C.S. Lewis to a Nazi. (To his credit Levinovitz concedes the point in the combox, saying that his comments were "written from a place of anger and divisiveness".)

    Anyway, it looks like you're headed off. I share the weariness with this forum.

    Much easier to curse the darkness than to light a candle.

    Politics makes most people weary I wish Ike was still around.

    I truly hope you don't see any of your 80,000 posts as anything approaching lighting a candle.

    All we ever do here is curse the darkness.

    Come on.

    Rich is a good guy.

    To see him kissing up to Redhat is disappointing. Not quite as bad as making common cause with you, so there's that.

    Yes, Rich is a good guy. As is Tim (Redhat).

    Tell me, John, what do you think has caused Rich to feel "weariness" regarding this forum?

    If I never read the baseball side I would be able to tell the Cardinals are losing from reading threads like this.
