Various Prayer RequestsA reader writes:My sister Erin Manning, author of the blog: And Sometimes Tea and occasional sit-in for Rod Dreher, was taken to the hospital Saturday night with odd back and leg pain and extremely high blood pressure. They kept her all day yesterday and are (hopefully!) releasing her today, (Monday, January 12th). She’s on medication, but no one seems to know what happened or why, so there’s still work to be done.

When the History of This Time is Finally WrittenOne of the lasting marks of shame will be that so very many Christians, including Catholics, were willing to prostitute themselves to Leviathan and cheer for torture and war crimes. Here, for instance is born-again Christian Fred Barnes telling us 10 Things Bush Got Right. #2: Torture (under the euphemism “enhanced interrogation” and playing all the usual definitional monkey puzzle trick to try to pretend that water-boarding is not torture while forgetting… Read more
