The Full Magnitude of the Problem AND SOMETIMES TEA - May 26, 2015 ... important comment , and she has give me permission to quote her here: We should be careful not to beg the question. Maybe Catholics are not doing something wrong. Maybe evangelicals are not doing something right. Maybe there's a confounding variable that influences this situation. I think wise leaders will resist any temptation to flail about in response to polls and surveys and trends. Trends, after all, are by definition, fickle and fleeting. We who know the truth must not be reactive. We ...http://redcardigan.blogspot.com/2015/05/the-full-magnitude-of-problem.html

In very different times, both Pope Francis and Pope Benedict have identified in the moment of martyrdom - that is, of death suffered in consequence of a profession of or living out of the Christian faith - a moment of particular ecumenical significance. It is indeed, they suggest, a moment of perfection of Christian unity. See my earlier post in this subject here . Pope Francis has again referred to the ecumenical ...http://rccommentary2.blogspot.com/2015/05/the-english-martyrs-contemporary.html

A Guest-Piece by D RORATE CÆLI - April 29, 2015 ... the concordat links between Church and State in Argentina are very strong.

Faulty Anti-Catholic List ST. WALBURGA'S BLOG - April 12, 2015 In searching for information to explain Catholicism to non-Catholic Christians, I came across a ridiculous webpage that tried to equate Mormonism to Catholicism. The absurd claim that Mormonism and Catholicism are equally bad or evil or not Christian is on the rise again. The author made a list of supposed points of similarity between "Mormonism" and "Roman Catholicism." While I cannot speak to the veracity of the Mormon list, I can sift through the ...http://stwalburgas.blogspot.com/2015/04/faulty-anti-catholic-list.html

Button is hardly alone: you can find similar attempts by Don Boys and others , some of them dating back several decades . The argument tends to work like this.
