Linking around on human rights & Catholic social teaching:
- Brandon @ Siris debunks a few myths about the Church “changing” it’s teaching on usury. Summary: The answer is still no and will always be no, but maybe that word doesn’t mean what you think it means. H/T to Darwin for the link.
- Nestle, Cargill & ADM get to go to court in California on charges of using slave labor. Thank Simcha Fisher for pointing me to that one.
- I just finished reading Factory Girl, which follows the (fictional) story of a girl working in the garment industry in 1912, USA, interspersed with the history behind the story as it unrolls. Great book, upper-elementary and above, suitable for grown-ups.
