Ross Douthat: Why I Am a Catholic SUNLIT UPLANDS - October 29, 2014 ... Roman Catholicism is the expression of Christianity that has kept faith most fully with the early church and the words of Jesus of Nazareth himself. A point that Cardinal George Pell, recently of Sydney and now of the Roman curia, made in a talk this week — that the search for authority in Christianity began not with pre-emptive submission to an established hierarchy, but with early Christians who " wanted to know whether the teachings of their bishops and priests were in conformity with ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/SunlitUplands/~3/ykHeh4C6WZU/ross-douthat-why-i-am-catholic.html
Marriage and Beauty THE THEOLOGY OF DAD - October 18, 2014 One of my favorite bloggers is one of my favorite people - Sarah, who writes with Tess over at The Feminine Gift . She wrote this nice piece about marriage ideals falling apart and all that. "Replying" to it a good chance for me to get away from Synod nonsense. You should probably share a great many of the beliefs of your friends, because otherwise, why are you friends? And so I do with Sarah. I am not going to disagree with anything she wrote, just comment ...http://thetheologyofdad.blogspot.com/2014/10/marriage-and-beauty.html
Family Synod: Gradualism and Truth DARWINCATHOLIC - October 13, 2014 There's a fair amount of buzz in the Catholic world at the moment about the Synod on the Family, which has released a summary document which outlines what the world's bishops are currently talking about in this first past of the synod proceedings. (They'll then reconvene in October of 2015, have further deliberations, and then the Vatican will at some indeterminate late date issue a document summarizing what they ...http://darwincatholic.blogspot.com/2014/10/family-synod-gradualism-and-truth.html
What's Procreation Got to Do With Sex? OUTSIDE THE ASYLUM - October 13, 2014 ... intelligent and educated woman asked, in all seriousness, "Who said reproduction has anything to do with sex?" I know — "You honestly expect us to believe that? Seriously? No one's that dumb!" Truly, most people, when they're thinking about it, know that you don't get pregnant from germs spread around the office, or from a bad batch of chicken or kale you bought at Walmart. Parents who don't stop having children, like Damien and Simcha Fisher , can testify to this common knowledge from ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/Outside_The_Asylum/~3/IF4CcFqVgOo/whats-procreation-got-to-do-with-sex.html
Why Young People Are Leaving the Church ... Or - Why Young People Interviewed on Hollywood Boulevard Do Not Know Who the ABBEY ROADS - October 11, 2014 This is the church, this is its steeple, open the doors, and - hey! where the hell are all the young people? What's the Church? There is an interesting article on Global Pulse asking the perennial question, "Why are young people leaving the Church in such numbers?" Religious people, bishops and priests and Catholic educators, and apparently parents and grandparents seem to be constantly wringing their hands over youth leaving the Church, ...http://abbey-roads.blogspot.com/2014/10/why-young-people-are-leaving-church-or.html
Is Mormonism Christian ? ARTICULI FIDEI - September 2, 2014 Is Mormonism Christian ? Putting aside for now the premise that those who attempt to answer this question should first define how they understand what the term Christian means and whether or not they believe that the term Christian demands more than one meaning, it has been my experience (via articles, books, message boards and personal conversations) that many who have answered this question have done so with little clarification and consistency. For instance, the majority ...http://articulifidei.blogspot.com/2014/09/is-mormonism-christian.html
The Great Challenge in Accepting Hard Church Teachings REFLECTIONS AND RUMINATIONS - July 6, 2014 Much has been said and misunderstood about the Church's teachings about her stand and wisdom behind the LGBT issue. Here in Singapore, the Church had been cautious through the years to weigh in on the issue at hand, but as of late, because of the strong views held by those who have SSA (same sex attraction) and who have been advocating the acceptance of such active lifestyles, our Bishop spoke up in an official capacity as head of the local church, making ...http://frlukefong.blogspot.com/2014/07/the-great-challenge-in-accepting-hard.html
