Hatttip to commenter Nate Winchester.
I guess this was inevitable, Shea is tangling with Father Z:
Mark Shea is sad because seminarians are Catholic
I was amused by this, which provoked some interesting twitter comments.
Mark Shea strikes me as… bumfuzzled. Too bad. He had promise.
The left has had its time. Sure, there’s a way to go yet and they can still perpetrate a lot of nasty. But, they are done. They just don’t get it.
Let me try to put this in terms that they will understand using a scene from Kill Bill, or if you prefer, Clan of the White Lotus (1980) or Executioners of Shaolin (1977). Kill Bill involves elements of old Japanese samurai, old Chinese Wu Xia, and old Spaghetti Westerns. It’s an homage pastiche with his weird post-modern scrambling of time frames. Any way, our anti-hero finally get’s her revenge on her former master using the Five Point Palm Exploding Heart Technique taught her by Pai Mei. After receiving this blow, the recipient’s, Bill’s, heart explodes but only after taking five steps.
So, just stand or sit there, no problem. Take five steps, blammo. It is, “Kill Bill”, after all. In other words, he sits and chats for a bit after the Five Point Palm Exploding Heart Technique , but… he’s already dead.
How many steps are left now?
