To Laugh or To Cry?

I am not sure what to make of the group Fatima1, which is hosting a conference at which the keynote speaker will be former Congressman Ron Paul. To incompatibility of Paul's brand of libertarianism with the most basic understanding of the Catholic Church's social teachings, and indeed with the Church's moral anthropology, it is hard to take this kind of thing seriously. But, there it is. We are trending into Fr. Coughlin territory here.
