Inasmuch as Pope Francis has said that the Church should apologize to homosexuals, it’s probably not too surprising that Michael Smalanskas, a resident advisor at Providence College, an allegedly Catholic institution, has been hounded and even been threatened with anal rape for posting an affirmation of Catholic doctrine on marriage being the union of one man and one woman on the college bulletin board.

The College is run by the Dominican order’s Province of St. Joseph, which is traditionally orthodox in its teachings, but in response to Smalanska being threatened, the administration has chosen to move him to some undisclosed location instead of expelling or suspending the members of the mob.

The college’s president, a priest, said: “It belongs to a Catholic college to consider the views of those who disagree with the Church’s teaching.”

Another administrator, V.P. of Student Affairs Kristine Goodwin then sent out an email encouraging student leaders to attend a scheduled protest against homophobia and transphobia.

Apparently, this is nothing new. The Church has been losing its backbone for some time. I still remember that when President liar-nObama was invited to speak at the University of Notre Dame, he insisted that the cross on the wall of the auditorium be covered, and the craven priests obliged his insulting and unreasonable demand. On the other hand, I don’t recall his asking that symbols of their religion be removed or concealed when he was invited to address Muslims.

Automobile manufacturers used to boast in their ads that a new model wasn’t, for instance, your father’s Oldsmobile. At Providence College, their slogan must be “This isn’t your father’s Christianity.”

The question is whether it’s Christ’s.

⦿ A cartoon I saw in response to liar-Hillary Clinton’s latest excuse for losing the election showed a woman explaining “My husband didn’t convince me to vote for Donald Trump; liar-Bill Clinton’s wife did.”

⦿ Although I am an admirer of Trey Gowdy, there’s no getting around the fact that he is one weird-looking individual. In fact, the last time he popped up on TV, with his skinny head giving him the look of a forceps baby and a peculiar topknot of hair, he looked exactly like some cartoon character. My inability to identify him was driving me crazy until my friend Steve Maikoski suggested it might be Zippy the Pinhead, and he was right.

Zippy has been around since 1971, mainly in college newspapers and the alternative press. His catchphrase is “Are we having fun yet?”

Apparently, Gowdy’s answer was “No,” so he has decided to retire at the end of this term. He and his topknot will be sorely missed.

⦿ The IRS has found that more than 1.3 million illegal aliens have stolen the identities of American citizens, and so far, not a single one of them has been prosecuted for the crime. Needless to say, if you or I tried it, we’d be doing the perp walk on the 6 o’clock news.

⦿ Proving that it’s not just at Catholic colleges that crazy people are being accommodated by the administrators, at the University of Santa Cruz, there is a list of so-called micro-aggressions that students are expected to avoid. Among them are saying such things as “America is the land of opportunity” and, worse yet, the politically incorrect “I believe the most qualified person should get the job.”

It’s probably a good thing that the folks at Santa Cruz are doing their best to stamp out these sorts of comments or, before you know it, some insensitive louts would be claiming that America is the greatest nation on earth or perhaps even that our language and culture are worth preserving.

As for suggesting that the most qualified people deserve the jobs, you can readily understand the resentment that would generate when it is clearly the reverse of hiring practices at Santa Cruz.

⦿ In Chicago, some of the students who got to play hooky in order to parrot Rahm Emanuel’s objections to guns, took advantage of their free time by vandalizing and looting a local Walmart.

But no guns were used during the commission of the crimes, so nobody until now has denounced the brats as hypocrites.

⦿ One of my subscribers, who spent 32 years in law enforcement, took umbrage with those who claimed that by celebrating Andrew McCabe’s downfall and accusing Robert Mueller of dragging out and expanding his witch hunt, Donald Trump wasn’t acting “like an innocent man.”

As he wrote: “How would they know how an innocent man would act? Innocent people react in any number of ways. Most innocent people object to never-ending investigations and want them to be over with. They don’t like the answer ‘As long as it takes’ when they ask how much longer an investigation is going to drag on. They don’t like investigations that go far beyond what they’re accused of or being told they have to be held accountable for crimes there is no evidence they committed. They don’t like it when innocent family members are dragged in or they are expected to prove their innocence when, legally, they don’t have to prove anything. Finally, I don’t want to hear liberals, or their lackeys say an innocent person has nothing to fear. History has proven them horribly wrong.”

⦿ Ken Klosterhaus reports that after his recent prostate exam, which was the most thorough he’d ever had, the doctor left the room and the nurse came in. As she shut the door, she asked me a question I never wanted to hear: “Who was that guy?”

I’m pretty sure Ken was kidding.

⦿ Someone sent me a picture of liar-Hillary Clinton lying on the ground, saying “Help! I’ve lost the election and I can’t shut up.”

⦿ After receiving only 77% of the vote, President Putin is claiming that Donald Trump colluded with his opponents to influence the election. For her part, Mrs. Trump pointed out that at least in Russia, when you win the popular vote, you get to be named the winner.
