There was so much work to be done in the Third World to bring basic levels of equality to women and girls. Today, little has changed in the feminist priority list.

Pope vs. Imam: “No war may be waged in God’s name”

I was wrapping up my time at home when news broke that a Coptic Church in Alexandria, Egypt had been suicide-bombed on Christmas Eve. One of the disturbing after effects of the attack has not only been Muslim-Christian riots and disturbances in Egypt, as well as fears among other Coptic communities of copycat attacks, but also the choice of an Egyptian Imam to criticize the Holy Father for express...

Outrageous: Muslim man arrested for dancing on altar of Florence’s Basilica

This boils my blood. Apparently a Muslim man brought a boom-box to the Basilica of Florence, turned on Michael Jackson’s song “Bad”, and began dancing on the high altar. Here is the video. Details beyond this are sketchy, but one report I found in Italian mentioned something about the man praying in Arabic constantly after he was detained in a cell. I realize there is a possibil...
