  • Contraception: The Last Frontier?
    My Latest Article for Ethika Politika - Post by E. Scott Lloyd, 5/18/2011

    “Fertile ground exists for pro-life Catholics and Protestants to work together to reduce our culture's resort to the various forms of contraception, despite the theological differences in our approach to their use. The facts indicate that this is a necessary endeavor for the pro-life movement. ... ”

  • Cardinal Burke and the liturgy
    Post by Greg LaNave, 5/12/2011

    “We were privileged yesterday, at the Dominican House of Studies, to host His Eminence Raymond Cardinal Burke, who spoke to us about a "theo-centric view of the liturgy." (See the lecture at the DHS web site: www.dhs.edu.) The principal idea was that since the liturgy is a participation in the one act of worship, which is Christ's act of worship offered to the Father, we should think of the liturgy not as our creation, but as something established by God according to his "ius divinum" (divine right). Of course the liturgy has changed in dramatic ways down through the centuries, and there are many different legitimate versions of it even now (consider, e.g., the very different liturgies of the Eastern Catholic Churches and the Latin Rite); to that extent, it certainly is a human creation---we don't have in Scripture prescriptions for Christian liturgy that are anything like the prescriptions for Jewish liturgy that we find in the Books of Exodus and Leviticus. Still, what the cardinal was certainly warning against was any view of the liturgy that sees it as a realm of experimentation on the part of the celebrant who is trying to make it relevant for his congregation. It is an act of worship, in which God enables us to place ourselves in right relation to him. ... ”

  • Elected Official Wishes Elections Wouldn't Matter So Much
    Former Speaker of the House Puts the "Democracy" Back in the Democrats - Post by Stu Nolan, 4/13/2011

    “Catholics used to be accused rather routinely of wanting to impose a theocracy. Nancy Pelosi, who likes to call herself a Catholic while openly dissenting from dogmatic Church teaching concerning the immorality of abortion and the unacceptability of legalized abortion, has a different kind of theocracy in mind. As reported (http://www.weeklystandard.com/blogs/nancy-pelosi-elections-shouldnt-matter-much-they-do_557307.html) here, she yearns for a day when the country is ruled by folks who all agree with her. ... ”

  • Explanation not necessary. It is totally absurd. Period.
    Post by Patricia Pitkus Bainbridge, 4/11/2011

    “I admit it. I''m an animal lover. In our forty-one years of marriage, my husband and I have had at least one dog in our household except for one short period of time. Currently, Ms. Daisy Mae rules the household. A feisty West Highland Terrier, she is very well cared for and basically wants for nothing. ... ”

  • Free Speech Analysis Turned Upside Down
    Forcing Americans to Show Government Regulation of Speech Is Irrational - Post by Stu Nolan, 4/3/2011

    “George Will has rightly observed -- and consistently sounded the alarm regarding -- that trend by which politicians have been attempting to outlaw criticism against them. The problem continues to grow worse. He writes about the latest (http://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/in-st-louis-a-protest-sign-meets-government-arrogance/2011/04/01/AFvR4wJC_story.html) here. What Will does not state, but we cannot ignore, is that the undermining of the free speech provisions of the First Amendment follows the attacks on free exercise under the guise of an overreaching reading of the non-establishment provision to somehow create a strict "wall of separation" between church and state. And of course these follow the invention of "rights" from penumbras and emanations in the "living" ever-changing Constitution. This is just more evidence of that which is manifestly clear; if the Constitution can mean anything, ultimately it will mean nothing. ... ”

  • Susan G. Komen and Planned Parenthood - A Connection That Cannot Be Ignored
    What Pro-Lifers Don't See - Post by Bob Laird, 4/2/2011

    “The more Planned Parenthood goes public, the more it unveils what lies behind its fa├žade of warm community health centers"- a systematic program of deceit and deception. The latest fumbling of the leading abortion-provider in the world falls into two categories: its intrinsic link to the Susan G. Komen for the Cure Foundation (SGK), and its pretext to perform mammograms as a means of breast-cancer prevention. ... ”
