A reader writes, “If God is love why would he care who you love or how many.” Which reminds me inexorably of the Prophet Chesterton’s essay “The Usual Article” (in The Thing: Why I Am a Catholic) in which he replies to a letter to the editor that says pretty much exactly the same thing [Read More...]

The Prophet Chesterton on Laudato Si

“We do not really want a religion that is right where we are right. What we want is a religion that is right where we are wrong. In these current fashions it is not really a question of the religion allowing us liberty; but (at the best) of the liberty allowing us a religion. These [Read More...]
