I wanted to add one humorous aside to yesterday’s commentary on Mike Potemra’s post about predestination on The Corner. He writes about author John Salza:
Just how conservative a Catholic is Mr. Salza? This should give some indication: Among his earlier books are Why Catholics Cannot Be Masons and The Biblical Basis for Purgatory.
While I’d hope explaining the biblical basis for purgatory isn’t a particularly conservative concern, the Freemasonry thing does continue to be amusing.
