I'm surprised it took 3-yrs to settle out of court.

I have read many of these articles and presented similar findings to my professors. They reject any connection between homosexuality and child abuse.

Catholics follow the teachings of the Church. I pray that our bishops become more vocal in publically denouncing those who present themselves as Catholics in favor of proChoice.

I'm trying to understand why the HHS mandate supports 100% reimbursement for birth control instead of maintenence for diabetes or heart disease. Even if we are willing to throw morals aside to save tax dollars, focusing on a single aspect of healtcare is a poor financial investment. Providing greater coverage for any particular area of care discriminates against those who require a different intervention or treatment.

I've saved this article, and will use it as referrence for my college classes. Our textbooks are socially correct, and deny any study that is detrimental to the GLBT political agenda. I will also look for additional articles from this author. TY.

I'm not sure that Cardinal Dolan invited the President in an effort to put differences aside. Diplomacy does not occur without stategic considerations. I have great respect for Fr. Pavone's opinion. I am curious to see how this plays out.
Mell 02/08/2012 21:37:52
I trust Cardinal Dolan. Inviting the President to speak doesn't condone his politcal positions. It may provide the President the opportunity to readdress his positions in a more charitable or practical manner.

Americans would be far better served if mandates provided for dental care, vision care, or any other specific healthcare. The administrations choice to focus on artificial contraception is clearly not routed in any examination of medical priority. I fear the motive behind the mandate is to limit the influence of the Church in America.
Mell 30/07/2012 21:37:43
Thanks. I never thought of it just that way.
Mell 29/07/2012 19:32:35
The Church is still recovering from sex abuse scandals decades ago. If we tolerate homosexuality in leadership, we will not regain the trust of those lost when we failed to act decisively. I love my Church.

I'm trying to think of a way to word this so I don't sound as if I'm trying to be a smarty pants... Wouldn't spelling out answers on a Ouija board keep a client in therapy for a very long time?

I often wonder why church leaders and politicians who present themselves as Catholic are able to make some of the public statements that they do without censorship from the Church. I'd like to see an article that explains the Churches position on this.

I don't fault Fr. Pfleger for his politics. I am embarassed that he represents the Church.

I'm pleased to see this study. In my university classes, we have discussed similar outcomes for children being raised in single parent households. Many students are unwilling to accept scientific reseach in lieu of the accepted social norms. The textbooks are often similarly single-minded.

I'm just guessing, but I suspect that many of the Catholics who are not opposed to the HHS mandate are unaware of it's full scope of authority. This mandate is a challege to the Constitution, and affects all American's regardless of Faith, political party, gender, sexual orientation, or bias. If we want our voice heard, we need to present the issue as such. Too many voters are under the impression that this is all about birth control.

I was going to write lol, but honest, I did laugh out loud. Calling it a prequel is a great idea. The Immaculate Conception was indeed a prequel. All went according to God's plan. No one could have made up the Bible. Just consider all the detail that was included in predicting the coming of the Messiah, his life, his death, and his reserection. I pray that many will be inspired by the film even if it ends up being a bit Hollywood. Maybe someone will consider writing a sequel; Satan Gets His … [More]

I chose Catholic School for my family because the teachings of the Church are dear to my heart. When the schools no longer reflect the values of Catholic teaching, they will be ineffective.
Mell 08/05/2012 19:38:58
I'm not familiar with the LCWR. I pray that their conference renews their Catholic Faith. I just gotta say; I'm SO tired of hearing about religious who mislead the faithful. They make our work as evangelists much harder. If they don't wish to follow the teachings of the Catholic Church they should be disallowed from presenting themselves as Catholic leaders.
Mell 05/05/2012 21:38:19
Obama didn't want to speak at a Catholic College with Catholic symbols in the backgroud??? Really? Didn't I just see him posing in front of military vehicles to take credit for the work of Navy Seals and US Intelligence? He just might be kicking himself in behind soon for missing that Kodak moment.

Friday fasting isn't a suffering penance at my house. I'm a great cook. Eating terrific meatless meals at the dining room table instead of the kitchen table also serves as a reminder of Christ's Passion. My Baptist husband really took notice this Lent when I took this tact. Every day is a day to evangelize. One way to a man's heart really is through his stomach.

Every incident that is a violation of law should be reported to local authorities, no exceptions.

I sometimes wonder why liberal priests can rant in favor of secular ideations without censorship from their bishops. I'm not certain if bishops have an obligation to explain their actions to the laity or not, but I would certainly find it encouraging from time to time.

I wish Alveda King was considered as news worthy as Al Sharpton.

I'd like to hear that the pamphet has been reviewed and corrections made to adhere to Church doctrine. My grandson starts kindergarten in the fall, and will be attending Catholic school. We are so pleased that each school day begins with the Our Father and the Pledge of Allegiance. That's why he's been enrolled in Catholic School. For those who want their children taught secular dogma, there are still many fine public schools.
Mell 16/03/2012 21:59:53
I agree with Sister Mary Ann Walsh. I've grown impatient with articles quoting studies. I can read. Tell me who was polled, what the question was, and report the responses. And BTW, the tired old expression "comparing apples to oranges" is a rediculous analogy in this essay. Bishops teach Catholicism. The Supreme Court rules on constitutional law. The only vote the faithful will get on the HHS mandate will be when they cast their vote in November.

I look forward to you returning to ministry, Father Guarnizo.

Name calling allows secularists to add; "and they call themselves Christians".

Someone please tell Sandra to reconsider her major if this is her best argument.

If Barbara, a former Catholic school teacher, hadn't considered that her orientation might be problem, I'm glad she is no longer teaching.

I would like to see our priests represent our concerns to the President of the United States with respect.

I appreciate media professionals who are able to interview guests in an unbiased manner. I would like to see more of them.

It seems that while Bishop Zurek must carry out his administrative duties, he has great respect for Fr. Pavone's ministry. I was so pleased to see him at the march.
