I've gotta say, when you get the Catholic whackos, they really do it up big as compared to their Prot brethren.

(Just for jollies, look up the Catholic version of the Protestant premillenial dispensationalists. Start with the Three Days of Darkness. Now if ever there was solid fodder for an apocalyptic End-of-Days whomping huge fun novel, that stuff has the Left Behind stuff beat hands down.)

Not sure if you've seen this yet, but it seems to be the sort of thing you'd be keen to know about:


Key paragraph: "This week, House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.) said the GOP approach would break from how U.S. policymakers have operated. Whereas Congress used to provide emergency funds after a disaster, without regard for budget caps or offsets, Republicans have said they will no longer accept such an approach — if Democrats want emergency assistance in the wake of a natural disaster, Republicans will insist on attaching some strings to the relief funds."
