Boston’s Hierarchy Continues to Distinguish Itself With its Courage and Justice Same cowardice, only now the people being abandoned in the rush to neglect responsibility are priests instead of victims. I’m impressed with this guy: “Foster says it is the victims of priests, and not him, who deserve the church’s undivided attention. ”What I’ve been [Read More...]

Take a second, maybe save a life I know, I know. It’s Oprah “Islam means peace” Winfrey’s site. But she’s doing the right thing.

The stupidity of all this is… you don’t have to cast the dragnet this wide. And you can start by, oh, focusing on every Saudi or Yemeni who comes here. But no. We have to pry into the bank account of Carl Krebsbach in Lake Wobegon. He *might* be a terrorist. Memo to the US [Read More...]

A Christian interview with Phillip Pullman is here and a First Things review of his extremely well-written and destructive books is here. FT also has a nice review of Harry Potter, who so many Christians are foolishly in a lather about. Future generation are going to look back on this one and wonder why we [Read More...]

I’m outta here for the weekend Before I go, the enterprising Dave Armstrong took a thread I participated in last year concerning the Gathering for Peace at Assisi and boiled it into a single web page article (amazing editor, that Dave). Here it is. I was writing in response to a protracted sneer about Assisi [Read More...]

There but for the grace of God go I I hear stuff like this a lot about guys like Law: “Law and others apparently have the attitude that priests are demigods who can do no wrong”. I hear them described as men of calculated malice, etc. I don’t think that’s accurate. Here’s my take on [Read More...]

Amy’s right It’s a culture of protectiveness that puts the good of the chum above the good of the victim.
