Welcome! Nowadays, I post to my new blog at Gleaners Chapel, a successor to my old Renegade Catholic blog.
But back before there were blogs, I wrote essays and posted them on my various websites. Some still have possibly interesting, even useful content, and I occasionally reference them in my current writings, and so they are posted here.
This site combines my archives of essays from my former sites, weirdload.com and priestsofdarkness.com, and a few from the now-retired renegadecatholic.com, too. Some selected material will be reposted with updates to the new site before these pages finally go to the great bit bin in the sky. I do apologize for the ancient format but the pristine content from the dawn of the web is what it is. Enjoy it while it lasts!

Again, I apologize for any bottlenecks, wonky navigation, dead links, and missing files. Please let me know if you run into any problems or have any comments. I wish you an informative and entertaining visit.
