Sex, Bureaucracy and Chesterton (I know that covers all the topics)

American Chesterton Society

 The frightful punishment of mere sex emancipation is not anarchy but bureaucracy.” – GK Chesterton

Some think we should be grateful that Justice Sotomeyer [sic? i'm too lazy to check] for blocking the contraceptives mandate through injunction.  Forgive me for not politely applauding the judicial standstill that merely panders to appease rather than recognizing the grave evil that is at the basis of the mandates idealism.

Oh and since I'm hitting on Chesterton, the Holy Father Pope Francis quoted the Late great soon to be Servant of God on December 5th of 2013 saying the following as recounted on the vaticans website here:

The Pontiff then quoted the English author G. K. Chesterton (1874-1936), when speaking about heresy once said that a heresy is a truth, a word, a truth gone mad. “When Christian words lack Christ, they begin to head down the road of madness”. The prophet Isaiah, he added, clearly describes the nature of this madness. He says: “The Lord is an everlasting rock. For he has brought low the inhabitants of the height, the lofty city” (26:4-5). “The inhabitants of the height. A Christian word without Christ leads to vanity, to self assuredness, to pride, and to power for power’s sake. And the Lord brings these people low”.
Have a Great Weekend!
