  • Well Did Our Pope Prophesy About You, Ricky Gervais
    The pop atheists prove once again that they are out of their league. - Post by E. Scott Lloyd, 3/21/2011

    “Pope Benedict XVI just released the second installment of his masterful work on the life of Jesus, "Jesus of Nazareth," which is getting praise from readers, theologians, and even many in the press, particularly for his reiteration of the Church's teaching that the Jews writ large are not to be held accountable for the Crucifixion of Christ. ... ”

  • Archbishop Chaput on Building a Culture of Life
    Dos and Don'ts - Post by Bob Laird, 3/21/2011

    “Some bishop's just "get it." They are first and foremost holy. They are fervent and they are crafty. One of these bishops is Archbishop Chaput from Denver. In his latest address, given in Fargo, ND, on February 25, 2011, he provides some "dos" and "don'ts" for building a culture of life. Here is the link for the (http://www.archden.org/index.cfm/ID/278/iArticleID/46/ipageContentCategoryID/278) full text. ... ”

  • Flawed Reasoning - 2
    Post by Bob Laird, 3/18/2011

    “Patricia Bainbridge makes a key point in ther recent post on Flawed Reasoning. - that when comparing the number of deaths due to the death penalty and the number of deaths due to abortion, the ratio is astounding. Working within the pro-life movement, those numbers become sort of a management tool. In Virginia the number of deaths due to abortion is around 25,000 per year and the number of deaths due to the death penalty is always less than 10. So, I would rationalize that if I spend 10 minutes working on stopping the death penalty for an individual, I needed to work 417 hours stopping abortion. Yes, the 10 individuals who died for a crime that they committed may have been wronged and may have deserved something better than the death penalty, but the 25,000 babies who died due to abortion have no one to stand up for them...no lawyer to plead their case in each court up to the Supreme Court. ... ”

  • De-Funding Public Radio
    Post by Stu Nolan, 3/18/2011

    “The news that the House of Representatives approved a measure that would de-fund National Public Radio appears at first glance to be a big symbolic victory for conservatives who object to its well documented bias favoring liberal and radical politics. Closer scrutiny indicates that this is probably only a symbolic gesture. ... ”

  • Court Holds State Interest in Protecting Children from Christian Values
    And Hundreds of Anglicans Restore Communion with Rome - Post by Stu Nolan, 3/18/2011

    “It is not the law of the land in America, at least not yet, but is the United Kingdom illuminating just where the slippery slope leads? At the promoting of the state-sponsored Equality and Human Rights Commission, a UK court there has held that a couple seeking to be foster parents could not do so because their Christian beliefs might "infect" the children and make them intolerant of the "rights" of homosexuals. The court found that the UK is a secular state, notwithstanding the fact this it still has a monarchy which presides over the Church of England. A full report by Paul Diamond can be found on National Review Online by clicking (http://www.nationalreview.com/corner/262234/are-children-infected-judeo-christian-values-paul-diamond) here. ... ”

  • Flawed Reasoning
    Post by Patricia Pitkus Bainbridge, 3/17/2011

    “Regardless of whether you support or oppose the death penalty for convicted criminals, you have to wonder why so many people who work so hard to outlaw capital punishment, have little or no regard for those innocent human beings who are killed by abortion. In fact, many who strive to enact laws eliminating the death penalty actually work to keep abortion legal. ... ”

  • Planned Parenthood's Myth that Birth Control Reduces the Need for Abortion
    Post by Gerri Laird, 3/5/2011

    “In response to the passage of Rep. Mike Pence's amendment to bar Planned Parenthood from receiving federal funds for any purpose, Cecile Richards, President of Planned Parenthood Federation of America, commented "...It is difficult to understand why people who say they are opposed to abortion would do so much to undermine the family planning and contraception that helps prevent the need for it..." Writer Kirsten Powers initially agreed with these words and opposed cutting off government funding for Planned Parenthood...until she did (http://www.thedailybeast.com/blogs-and-stories/2011-03-04/planned-parenthoods-birth-control-myth/?om_rid=NsfnhG&om_mid=_BNcUhyB8ZdftQ) a little research ("Busting the Birth-Control Myth," The Daily Beast, March 4, 2011). ... ”

  • FCC Declines to Go As Far As Agency Had Proposed in Favoring Tribal Groups Seeking Spectrum Rights
    Post by Stu Nolan, 3/4/2011

    “After receiving opposition from the Catholic Radio Association (and solely the CRA), the FCC has declined to extend, at least in a per se fashion, a preference for American Indian applicants based solely on their status as American Indians. The decision concerned whether the so-called "tribal priority" would be extended to tribes without land. The agency announced it will still allow American Indians without tribal lands to receive the preference if they satisfy certain criteria for a waiver of the requirement that only landed tribes are default-eligible for the preferential treatment. ... ”

  • Accountability in Online Expression
    Post by Patricia Pitkus Bainbridge, 3/3/2011

    “In my posting last week entitled "The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly," I alluded to the problems associated with the pervasive "anonymous" blog commenters. Many ugly things have been said behind the façade of "anonymous" or any of the other pseudonyms used by individuals opining on blogs. ... ”

  • Double Standard for Gay Rights?
    If homosexuality was normal, why do people hide the fact - Post by Bob Laird, 3/2/2011

    “Earlier this week the Obama Administration indicated that they were not going to enforce DOMA (Defense of Marriage Act), thinking that by doing so, it would open up the floodgates for states to approve same-sex marriage. The Obama Administration is trying remove the legal barriers to establish a new "norm" for same-sex marriage. ... ”
