King David is Criticized Soundly, and Takes It Like A Man

I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again, many of the stories we find in the Bible rival Shakespeare’s works in terms of their sweeping grandeur and poignant messages. In fact, as others more erudite than Joe Six-Pack have argued, without the Bible, much of what we take for literature would have no foundation on which to stand. What follows is an episode that could have come right out of the Bard’s Macbeth. [Read more...]

The HHS Mandate is a Very Foul and Dangerous Thing

This may surprise you, but many folks have no idea how repellent the HHS Mandate is to our way of life.

And I don’t just mean the Catholic way of life, but to the American Way of life, which rests on the rights enshrined in the first ten amendments to the Constitution of the United States. [Read more...]

You Don’t Have to be Catholic to Recognize Joe Biden’s Remarkable Incoherence on Abortion

Here at Patheos, there are many different viewpoints from folks from many different faith traditions.  Timothy Dalrymple isn’t a Catholic, for example.  But one doesn’t need to be a Catholic to recognize cognitive dissonance of the magnitude that was displayed by Vice President Biden during the recent debate with candidate Paul Ryan.

A Quote for Election Seasons, Past, Present, and Future

 

“It is your duty to vote. To neglect to do so would be a culpable abdication of duty on your part. It is your duty to vote honestly; that is to say, for men worthy of your esteem and trust. It is your duty to vote wisely; that is to say, in such a way as not to waste your votes. It would be better to cast them for candidates who, although not giving complete satisfaction to all our legitimate demands, would lead us to expect from them a line of conduct useful to the country, rather than to keep your votes for others whose program would indeed be more perfect, but whose almost certain defeat might open the door to the enemies of religion and of the social order.”

Fr. John A Ryan, DD, formerly the Professor of Moral Theology at the Catholic University of America, democracy of the dead (requiescat in pace)
