After weeks of waffling on what to do on the delicate issue of providing low-income health care to Boston residents, Cardinal O’Malley finally made what appears to be the best possible decision. The problem, in short, is this: the state has a low-income health-care program, but to be a provider, you have to provide abortions […]
Wow. Good catch, American Papist.
The Chicago Tribune “reports” in an online op-ed which boldly asks, “Is murder inevitable consequence of abortion debate?,” a question which is as thorough with its history (ignoring that the last time an abortionist was killed prior to Tiller, Monica Lewinsky was still a news item), as it is with its grammar (perhaps it should […]
I found an interesting set of statistics, and have been playing around with them a little bit. The title of the chart is, “Number of Chapters, Number of Verses in Each Chapter,Total Number of Verses, and Total Number of Words in each book of the Greek New Testament,” and it’s exactly what it sounds like.

So I’ve covered my initial shock and disgust at what happened, and the subsequent media frenzy (disgusting in its own way). But I wanted to briefly add a couple of my own thoughts, the first of which I hadn’t seen represented yet. First, those who commit murders like this aren’t the powerful bullies the pro-choice […]

In the aftermath of 9/11, there were those who used the situation (out of fear or sheer political opportunism) to restrict the civil rights of Muslim-Americans, to promote the unrelated war in Iraq (which had been Project for a New American Century’s […]
Late-term abortionist George Tiller was gunned down in cold blood in church yesterday morning. I’m not in a position to know which is more of an affront to God: the fact that George Tiller was serving as an usher at Reformation Lutheran (an ELCA church), despite his notorious practice of aborting children partially out of […]
The three major take-aways I’ve seen are: (1) Obama’s speech shows he’s actually “moderate” on abortion, (2) Notre Dame Loves Obama, and (3) only a handful of students protested. As this “gay news service” blog puts it in an article title “Notre Dame Protest Flops”: President Obama arrived at Notre Dame to thunderous applause and […]
I know, I know, on Saturday I said that I would probably do a post yesterday on Christological prophesies in the Old Testament, and on the issue of typology, but I didn’t. I’ll get to it eventually, but there are a lot of other things I want to talk about in the meantime. One of […]
