Blogging Will Resume Sunday

The original Mahound blog title picture

I generally do not like self-referential posts. You probably don't either. But bear with me for this exception.

I will be incommunicado for a few days, due to traveling. I will post again on Sunday.

Since Charlie Hebdo, I've posted once a day on average. I intend to hit 365 by the anniversary of the attacks.

Bearing witness, partly to those who were murdered is important. And contra Bishop Barron, bearing witness means more than just smiling idiotically over your turkey plate.

I hope I have done them justice.

As readers know, Mahound's Paradise is a mix of Islamophobic, Traditionalist Catholic and Jewish/Israeli topics.

Within that, I split roughly half and half between original material and links to news items of interest. It all depends on how inspired/lazy I am.

I'm pondering or have half-written these posts:
  • Analysis of the recent French elections
  • Post titled, "In Praise of Jack Chick" (yeah, I know that will really help me win friends and influence people)
  • Post on the recent FrancisChurch "don't evangelize Jews" thing
  • Should we lie to our kids about Santa?
  • My general thoughts on immigration (I'm pro, sort of)
I was going to polish and upload the French election piece, but I'm too tired and the plane leaves too early. Plus, I have to do laundry.

Ah, the romantic life of a blog writer.

Thanks for reading! Have a blessed third week of Advent!

And don't let the haters get you down!


  1. Jack Chick? My My you do like to play with fire...and 3rd level fireball spells if my feeble memory is remembering who it is correctly.

    1. Forgive me if I am being forgetful but you might have the wrong man. I've never played in a google+ d&d hangout game. Is that what you mean?

    2. It's really fun Oakes. You should try it. I would prefer playing in person, but at last my schedule will not allow it.

  2. And Sunday came and went. Christmas takes it's toll on our schedules.

    Merry Christmas to you and your family, Oakes!
