A Retired Bishop Says the Catholic Church Needs to Change, but His Focus is All Wrong

In the New York Times yesterday, Francis A. Quinn, a retired Catholic bishop, offered suggestions for how the Church ought to change moving forward. Membership numbers are decreasing by the day and something must be done, he says, to retain good leaders within the Church. He even says that “American Catholics are divided, primarily, by three internal church conflicts.”

Mike Huckabee Trashes Obama’s Pick for Army Leader: He’s Just “Appeasing America’s Homosexuals”

On Friday, President Obama nominated Eric K. Fanning to be the next secretary of the Army. If confirmed by the Senate, which he probably will be given his extensive leadership history, Fanning would become the first openly gay person to hold that position.

The colorful campaign benefits the It Gets Better Project — an organization that encourages gay and lesbian teens who have been victims of bullying.

Just as in the Target scenario, the angry commenters seem to have no clue that Melgaard is not, in fact, an actual representative of Frito-Lay.
