I am a Knight of Columbus. As such, my moral compass points to Charity. Always. That was challenged on facebook today- and I'd like to preserve a few links here.
The first has been posted here before- the letter, two years ago, I found on George Tiller's website that proved to me that if abortion is allowed to continue, we will soon have genetic eugenics against autistics.
A neat set of graphs showing why the financial bubble happened and why it can be attributed to the rising gap between the rich and the middle class.
A quote from Ronald Reagan, who continues to amaze me how Catholic he really is, given that the reputation of St. Ronnie as put forth by libertarians and Republicans simply isn't:
"In this present crisis, government is not the solution to our problem; government is the problem. From time to time we've been tempted to believe that society has become too complex to be managed by self-rule, that government by an elite group is superior to government for, by, and of the people. Well, if no one among us is capable of governing himself, then who among us has the capacity to govern someone else? All of us together, in and out of government, must bear the burden."
Almost out of Rerum Novarum, that is.
Cloning proves, scientifically, that life begins at conception.
How to say the Rosary in Chinook Wawa or at least two prayers of it. Try to convince your liturgy committee in Oregon today that to be truly multicultural, we need to say the Nisika Papa!
And finally a pair of links about the USCCB:
There's a new New American Bible to go along with our reform of the reform of the counter-reformation Mass
And we'll end that with the one thing everybody in America seems to want to forget, a little video they used to show during Saturday Morning Cartoons- I wonder how many Americans can quote it today? Note, provide for the common defense and promote the general welfare. Can we truly say we're doing that today?
