Hm. The pope and the ITC must read American Catholic blogs…

…because no sooner had a bunch of us taken the National Catholyc* Reporter to task for their ridiculous editorial in support of Womyn priests* and Mr. Roy Bourgeouis, but the pope, while addressing the International Theoligical Commission said the following: Today, however, it is particularly important to clarify the criteria used to distinguish the authentic sensus fidelium from its counter...

A “Liberal Catholic” sums it up nicely.

From the “Couldn’ta said it better myself” files. One of our regular Catholyc commenters who specializes in beating straw men to death, missing the point, mis-stating others’ arguments, and just generally being a bad-faith interlocutor, recently commented the following: This “liberal Catholic” label is bothersome. First of all, liberal Catholics outnumber “conservativ... More

Welcome to the Lunchtime Reader, where we assemble important stories to keep your eyes on. Kudos to country music star (and recent Catholic convert) Collin Raye, who agreed to be the new spokesman of the Life and Hope Network, founded by the family of Terri Schiavo. “What the Life and Hope network does is provide an already pretty impressive network list of attorneys and doctors that are avai...

The lie of “personally opposed, but…” laid bare. [With update]

Why I am happy with +Chaput to Philly: Because this guy is upset.

I was asked by a non-Catholic friend what I thought of the appointment of Archbishop Chaput to Philadelphia. I had begun a post, but really didn’t get far on it. Little did I know that a professor at the Catholic University of Dayton would take of it for me. Sort of… Cardinal Newman Society ran an excerpt of his op-ed on their blog. As I read it, one of “those smiles” crept... More

Chris Dodd is Not St. Thomas More.

“A man should go where he shall not be tempted.” Robert Bolt put those words into the mouth of Saint Thomas More in his play “A Man for all Seasons,” later adapted into the film of the same name. The script depicts the tribulation and final passion of the towering, but humble, figure of Sir Thomas More, a man whose life, example, and death, earned not only canonization, but... More
