So basically my faith in God and the Church’s security skyrocketed. National security on the other hand? Uhhhh…
I miss you, Grandma.
Happy 6th real birthday.
awkwardbutaccurate: shortbreadsh: lovelyloretta: I don’t really understand the concept of overindulging in everything you’re not supposed to have during Lent. As my priest always says, whatever you’re doing for Lent should not be something that you plan on going back to once Easter is here. You should do something that will affect your life forever after. As an adult, you shouldn’t give...

Opposition to the AHA Mandate, simplified.
The AHA Mandate: Everyone has the right to birth control. Opposition: Yes, everyone has the right to birth control, but you do not have the right to make us pay for it. Why is this such a difficult concept?

mystagogy: Today, Cardinal-designate Timothy Dolan appeared on CBS This Morning to present the Church’s position. Ahead of his appearance, however, CBS correspondent Bill Plante appeared on-air to report that the White House sees this as a Generational Issue and is counting on Catholic Women who are of the age most likely to use contraception. In other words, President Obama needs to receive...
Isaiah and the Hubble Telescope
mystagogy: This is from an article about the Dead Sea Scrolls and the Hubble Telescope: The passage in question, Isaiah 40:25-26, reads: “To whom will you compare me? Who is my equal?” asks the Holy One. “Look up into the heavens. Who created all the stars? He brings them out like an army, one after another, calling each by its name. Because of his great power and incomparable strength, not a...

And So It Begins
mystagogy: A group of pro-life advocates were arrested today outside the White House as they protested the new mandate pro-abortion President Barack Obama put in place requiring religious groups and employers to pay for birth control and abortion-inducing drugs.

I do not understand.
Why is disagreeing with the minority “closed-minded,” but bashing on the majority is social acceptable?

mystagogy: I did not expect to see this article today. Made my day. Today’s injunctions against birth control were re-affirmed in a 1968 document by Pope Paul VI called Humanae Vitae. He warned of four results if the widespread use of contraceptives was accepted: General lowering of moral standards A rise in infidelity, and illegitimacy The reduction of women to objects used to...
Thank you, President Towey (:
Dear Members of the Ave Maria University: Today I issued a statement regarding the new Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) mandate that will require Catholic colleges and universities to provide contraceptive services, including sterilization, as part of their health plans. Presently Ave Maria University does not provide such coverage because of our adherence to the teachings of the...
I love the Catholic Church.
Talking with a friend of mine about private, religious colleges. He mentioned that getting certain degrees from religious colleges are worthless, and his example was a science degree from a particular fundamentalist college. I asked him why it didn’t count, and he told me something about how they teach creationism and pass it off as science. I promptly said that I don’t know about...
Having more than two children is immoral.
I came across an article arguing the myth behind overpopulation. As I was reading, I discovered an idea that I vaguely remember hearing about years ago, that having more than two children is immoral. The idea is that the earth is finite, and if we have too many children, we will face overpopulation. The logic is that each couple is to have two children, which would create an equal birth to death...
