June 23 - Homily for Today FATHER BILL DINGA'S BLOG - June 23, 2015 What separates us from the dogs and the cats and any other animal is the human ability to anticipate our words and deeds by reasoned analysis, however brief. Man does not live by unbridled reflex instinct like the dogs, cats and other animals of the earth. And so Jesus today gives the perfect concept which will aid in all our reasoned responses to what life sends us: "Say and do to others whatever you would have them do to you. This is the Law and ...http://fatherbill1975.blogspot.com/2015/06/june-23-homily-for-today.html
Laudato Si and Small Acts of Love AND SOMETIMES TEA - June 18, 2015 I had planned on writing a bit this week about the resignation of Archbishop Nienstedt, but the week has gotten away from me. I've been a bit under the weather (which is a polite way of saying that the stomach bug everyone else in the family already had finally decided it was my turn). Since I am not doing a whole lot today, though, I actually had time to read Laudato Si this afternoon. ...http://redcardigan.blogspot.com/2015/06/laudato-si-and-small-acts-of-love.html
Who Safeguards the Purity of the Gospel? A Reflection on Dissent ARNOBIUS OF SICCA - May 26, 2015 ... badly (doctrinally or personally). That is not the case. Certainly, you will find people who abuse their position, promoting politics or error over the Church teaching, and that is wrong. When the Church teaches "X is a sin," the person who teaches "X is not a sin" does act against the Church. That's not a matter of dispute. However, the problem is that dissenters often argue that there is a change in teaching when there is not. Sometimes a member of the clergy might speak ...http://arnobius-of-sicca.blogspot.com/2015/05/who-safeguards-purity-of-gospel.html

Dirty Low-Down ... The F-Word Online and Other Vulgarities. ABBEY ROADS - April 28, 2015 Chester-cat-ton Where to start? Recently I watched some deleted scenes from Seth Rogen's film, The Interview , one of the worst films ever made BTW. The scenes contained a constant use of the F-word and other vulgarities - much worse than some Catholic blogs ... Which prompts me to ask: Why do you people have to use the F-word when you write your egregious posts? What? Transgender issues. I think I am as repelled by ...http://abbey-roads.blogspot.com/2015/04/dirty-low-down-f-word-online-and-other.html
How We Think Helps Explain the Culture Wars CRISIS MAGAZINE - April 8, 2015 ... abilities. And that appears so. The improvement in scores corresponds to a tendency to think less by reference to concrete narratives and more by reference to abstract analysis.

Plus, "chicks dig it" when you take action. I'm not sure Katherine Cross would agree with that last assessment … or, for that matter, to being called a "chick". However, she does agree that "offense discourse" leads to inaction : It has to be one of the most significant rhetorical own-goals of the Left since the 1960s: allowing ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/Outside_The_Asylum/~3/SOE2KFkBahU/taking-offense-and-taking-action.html
