The John Calvin Quiz




The Calvin Quiz

Well, I got 9 out of 10. I did have to guess a few, as I haven't been involved in anything substantially "Calvin" for quite a while. I was scored a "certified Calvin scholar." LOL

I got 100%!

Of course, I was looking it all up in Wikipedia at the time...

Quiz seemed pretty worthless if you ask me.

Erwin-

The quiz is for research geeks to strut the feathers with how smart they are. I got lucky with a few guesses and did fairly well.

I clicked on your blogger profile and noticed you're blog is fixated on Mark Shea. What's up with that?

Have you read much on Mark Shea? The guy is a complete self-consumed jerk who tolerates very, very little as far as disagreement goes. He regularly uses profanity towards others, even fellow Catholics who disagree with him, and quickly censors those who do not bow down to him as their "Dark Lord." For example, Catholics who want to argue in favor of using tactics that some might sonstrue as torture against someone known to be complicit in let's say a ticking bomb senario, Shea would respond to the Catholic by saying, "Mr. Blowtorch up above wrote to indulge a vengeance fantasy and say 'F___ you' to the Church's teaching while patting himself on the back that God would tearfully commend him for making 'the hard choice'" (I blocked out the profanity).

Shea is intellectually weak, and will not engage someone who pursues an argument against him. If you do, then you get banned. Shea is quick to call others cowards, but he is the coward by far.

I will dedicate my blog to exposing Shea's utter stupidity. I am an old man, so I will only do what I can.

Look at what one commentator just wrote to Shea today, and you be the judge:

Mark, too bad you couldn't extend the same courtesy to those of us you called "apologists for mass murder" and "torture whores" and many other calumnious insults for holding legitimately Catholic views you happen to disagree with.

People like Shea need to be opposed. He does more damage than good.
