You're right. The modern manifestation of Rasputin. Thank God the Sheens are a dying breed. No apologies will be forthcoming for this statement.

["Before the Name 'Sheen' Was Dragged Through the Mud", which I wrote in 2015:]

Since the name "Sheen" has become so notorious of late, perhaps we can restore some of its respect by quoting the late Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen (1895-1979), on a matter of far more importance today than the scandalous exhibitionist escapades of a rampant narcissist who goes by the same last name.

After all, it was the charismatic and prolific then-Bishop (he was known as “America’s Bishop”, and wrote over 60 books and was a fixture on TV in the ‘50s, even winning an Emmy!) whom Charlie Sheen’s father, born Ramon Estevez, sought to honor when he took the stage name “Martin Sheen”.

Here's some of the wisdom that the esteemed (and prescient!) Catholic theologian shared in 1950:

“Today, the hatred of the Moslem countries against the West is becoming hatred against Christianity itself. Although the statesmen have not yet taken it into account, there is still grave danger that the temporal power of Islam may return and, with it, the menace that it may shake off a West which has ceased to be Christian, and affirm itself as a great anti-Christian world power.”
