That "grassroots" liberal-latte Coffee Party is anything but grassroots. . .how did the NYT miss such the connection? Or rather, why didn't they report the connection?
Atheists will trade you a Bible for p0rn! No wonder their nihilistic ideology is so incredibility popular worldwide.
Archbishop Wuerl of D.C. says that the archdiocese "will be in compliance" with new laws requiring organizations that receive city funds to provide benefits to their employees in SSM. This decision deserves very close scrutiny.
Update: the D.C. archdiocese will comply with the new SSM laws by not offering spousal benefits to new employees. Ahhhhh, the good fruits of imposed equality.
Supreme Court Chief Justice Roberts denies a petition to stay the enactment of the D.C. SSM law. His reasoning is based on his philosophy of judicial restraint not on the merits of the law.
Ole Miss to replace Colonel Reb mascot with Admiral Ackbar? I was a freshman at Ole Miss in 1982 when a black cheerleader refused to use the Confederate flag at football games. The campus was in racial turmoil the whole academic year.
Fr. Z. puts the smackdown on the silly (and illicit) practice of replacing Holy Water with sand during Lent. If your pastor is allowing this, print off the notice from the Vatican and send it to him. Consider it a penance.
Conference in Rome on the fifth Marian dogma: Mary, co-Redemptrix. If this idea were declared dogma by BXVI as it is stated in the supporting material, I see no theological problems with it. The dogma would state what the Church has always taught: Mary, in her assent to being the Mother of God and her suffering at the cross, cooperated in our redemption. To the degree that each of us follows Christ to the cross, we too are "co-redeemers" in our salvation. The title "co-Redemptrix" in no way indicates that Mary is a redeemer equal to Christ.
