And here’s the document on evangelization of Jews from the USCCB Nuanced, as I thought. But not unorthodox, from what I can see. I see no substantial difference between this: “God’s grace, which is the grace of Jesus Christ according to our faith, is available to all. Therefore, the Church believes that Judaism, i.e. the [Read More...]

Fr. Wilson shares my sentiments: He writes: I really want to see this document. It may be that it is capable of being read as a denunciation of “proselytism,” which seems to be defined today as aggressive attempts at undermining the faith of others and converting them. But if the document denies Jn xiv.6, well, [Read More...]

I like David Heddle’s straight-forwardness Very refreshing. It’s always nice to meet a person who cares about reality more than about how everything makes him feel. One of the virtues of the Truly Reformed that I’ve always liked. Of course, we still disagree since I’m right and he’s wrong. [Read more...]

Speaking of which There’s some new document from the American bishops about not proselytizing Jews. The papers are making it sound as though Catholics are now dispensed from believing that Jesus is the one Way, Truth, and Life and that Jews can be saved apart from Christ. However, I’m gonna withhold judgement about whether the [Read More...]

More from the “No Good Deed Goes Unpunished” Dept. For thinking the good Abe Z. is in heaven, I’m now likened to a white supremacist. The fun never stops. In an attempt to be ultra clear, I’m not saying Abe was a Christian. He lived and died a pious “simple Jew” in his own words. [Read More...]

Sources tell me the Lidless Eye of Reactionary Catholicism is turning its pitiless gaze on Looks to me like the author is not full of bitter rage and seems to have a wide variety of interests and enjoyments as well as a contented faith in Christ and his Holy Church, so he’ll probably soon [Read More...]

Victor Lams gives the latest scoop No sir, anti-catholicism isn’t dead. Why Our Lady of Good Counsel (whose pastor so eloquently explained that authentic Catholic faith is pro-choice) was brutally persecuted by those awful people who defend innocent human life from destruction. Happily, however, the pastor of OLGC was able to threaten them with arrest [Read More...]

There’s a truly evil author writing children’s books to poison them against God and Christians, as is so often the case, are running around panicking about the nonsensical “hidden satanic messages” in Harry Potter books instead of seeing the really obvious and blatant attack on their faith in Phillip Pullman’s work. Memo to Potter haters: [Read More...]

From the “No Good Deed Goes Unpunished” Dept. My blog in praise of Abe Zelmanowitz get negative reactions from readers of Joe Katzman’s blog. I appreciate Joe’s generous defense. There are a number of places where, naturally, I would not have worded that defense as Joe has, but on the whole I am grateful for [Read More...]

A reader writes: I went out and read some of what ( Bob S has to say. I’ve come to a greater appreciation of his position, but I find his methods to be misguided, at best. First, in his defense, he sometimes returns to what he knows and makes some good points. I tend to [Read More...]

Bob Sungenis writes: Mark has been kind enough to allow me respond to his August 8 blog entry as a means to settle a dispute between us. My contention to Mark is that I am not really bothered by him, or anyone else, disagreeing with me on cosmology. What I am concerned with is the [Read More...]

Bob Sungenis Demands an Apology So: I’m sorry. My blog was not intended to offend and I’m sorry it hurt your feelings. It was, however, intended to point out that there is a real danger in hitching your defenses of the Faith to utterly unnecessary (and frankly bogus) stuff like geocentrism and a non-rotational earth.
