Recent USC Articles - Luther, Greenland, Sedevacantism and more!

There have been a lot of great posts on USC in the past month, though I have not been able to post as much as I would have liked. There's some wonderful stuff on Luther, Sedevacantism, biblical contradictions, a new RCIA lesson plan, and much more. Please check it all out, forward to your friends, and if you are so moved, consider making a donation to the upkeep of this blog and website. I put countless man hours into it, not because I seek anything, but because the Lord says "my people perish for lack of knowledge" (Hos. 4:6). Donations help me pay for different plug-ins for the website, pay the hosting fees, and other things associated with maintaining a web presence. And where else can you find this much cool material?

Okay, I am tooting my own horn a bit, but please consider it. Click the button below to donate; anything is appreciated, and I will remember you in my prayer intentions before our Lord.


I also want to introduce a new addition to the team whom you will never see but who is vitally important: John from Edinburgh, Scotland. John, noting that most of my website articles are pitifully laden with misspellings, typos and other grammatical problems, volunteered to take on the thankless task of sloughing through all my material to clean it up a bit. From here on out, you should not be seeing the typos anymore - Lord willing. God bless John.

I sent you an e-mail months ago asking how to donate, but I still have not been able to get around to it because of complications with bank accounts and PayPal! I think, however, this week or the next I will be able to, and then I will do my best to repay you for all great material you have so generously provided us with!

PS: Do you speak speak and write French?

Yes, I recall! I have since fixed that problem and many people have successfully used the Paypal button since. But if you are still having problems, (I think I offered this last time), I would be happy to give you a mailing address if you want to send a donation via snail mail.

Yes, you offered, but it seems way too unsafe to me. I suppose I am spoiled by modernity. Besides, you or I'd have to exchange the money and lose whatever you lose on that. Also, the troubles were on my side. At least I did not get far enough to encounter any other problems.

Going from one thing to the other, why do you link to a tattoo site (lavarepedes.blogspot.com)? They aren't even very good tattoos...

BONIFACE said...

Forgive me; I did not realize you were in another country.

Lavare Pedes used to be a trad blog; not sure how it turned into a tattoo blog. I deleted it.
