The Back of the World - The troubling genius of G. K. Chesterton.

The title of this post is taken from the title of an essay I recently read in 'The New Yorker'. The author claimed to 'love' Chesterton's writings, and then proceeded to bring in all the left-wing canards against him. You know the drill. 'Chesterton was a fascist', 'Chesterton was an anti-semite'. That sort of thing. The entire essay was proof of the old saying, 'With friends like that, he doesn't need enemies'!

Comments are subject to deletion if they are not germane. I have no problem with a bit of colourful language, but blasphemy or depraved profanity will not be allowed. Attacks on the Catholic Faith will not be tolerated. Comments will be deleted that are republican (Yanks! Note the lower case 'r'!), attacks on the legitimacy of Pope Francis as the Vicar of Christ (I know he's a material heretic and a Protector of Perverts, and I definitely want him gone yesterday! However, he is Pope, and I pray for him every day.), the legitimacy of the House of Windsor or of the claims of the Elder Line of the House of France, or attacks on the legitimacy of any of the currently ruling Houses of Europe.
