Will U.S. Bishops Choose Life?

John Zmirak asks the question:

We don’t look to The Wall Street Journal for its religion reporting. But a recent piece stands out. It shows American Catholicism at a crossroads. It’s rare that a single decision decides the future of a church in a nation. But we face such a moment now. As the Journal explains, the bishops will vote on a crucial staff post. Who will lead the Church’s pro-life efforts? The vote is down to two candidates — Cardinal Blase Cupich, of Chicago, and Archbishop Joseph Naumann, of Kansas City — who represent the ideological poles of the U.S. church and have articulated different visions of what being pro-life should mean.

Facebook Suspends Priest for Sharing Politically Incorrect Thoughts About Islam

The truth is now considered assault.

Facebook may be failing to keep up with terrorists who use the social media platform to incite, enlist, and organize would-be killers, but it's Johnny-on-the-spot when it comes to Catholic priests who share politically incorrect thoughts about Islam. Late last month Facebook temporarily suspended the account of Fr. John Higgins, the pastor St. Raymond Parish in Downey, Calif., in response to a post he had written about the history of Islam. “There are peaceful and good Muslim people,” he wrote. “And then there are the Islamists who are defended by the ignorant who refuse to learn history.”

So how does this whole terror thing effect me, Paul Krugman? Not so much.

New York Times columnist Paul Krugman weighed in on the terror attacks in London, which is apparently where he is headed later in the week. Cue the insanity.

Outrage After Catholic University Accidentally Hires Practicing Catholic To Head Department Of Theology

Funny 'cause it's true kind of stuff from Eye of the Tiber.

A Catholic university is under fire this week after school administrators accidentally hired 37-year-old Todd Alguire, a practicing Catholic, to head their Department of Theology. Diocesan bishop Kevin Sterling  has now demanded an investigation into the ‘offensive’ hiring after rumors spread that students would need to “brush up on the fundamentals of the Catholic  faith” before beginning this upcoming semester. Ryan Gurley, a sophomore who described himself as ‘devoutly spiritual,’ told EOTT that his refusal to participate in any further religion classes might lead to his suspension.

Bill Nye's Anti-Religion Ice Cream Orgy Video Will Weird You Out

Must watch. But it will kinda' ruin your day.

After watching the clip of Rachel Bloom on Bill Nye’s show that’s supposedly about science, one had to believe that we had seen Peak Nye. Not even close. Nye seems to have decided to dedicate his new Netflix series to a string of very strange takes on sexuality, and his latest one features an ice cream orgy that ridicules religious belief, while making an incoherent argument that feelings are bad … unless they’re good. Or something (via Twitchy):

Science States When Life Begins

Politics over science.

When does life begin? According to the United States Supreme Court, a number of politicians including President Barack Obama, and a variety of other sources, there is still much debate in the realms of science and medicine as to how to answer this charged question. A popular deflection is to say something like “It’s above my pay grade to answer that,” or “If scientists are still debating this, who am I to speculate?” The truth is that science already has answered this question, loud and clear. It’s really pretty simple. You take an egg from a female and a sperm cell from a male. The sperm penetrates the egg. And now you have one cell with the complete amount of genetic material needed for everything a human could ever want to do.

Break Your Silence: Speak About Amoris Laetitia!

Thomas Peters:

It has been 600 days since I last composed a blog post, but this is so important I am breaking my hiatus. Almost exactly 1600 years ago, in the midst of the Pelagian heresy which threatened to engulf the Church, St. Augustine wrote that when Rome has spoken, the case is closed (paraphrased: “Roma locuta est, causa finita est”). Today, precisely because the pope has not spoken, the Church is facing a crisis, and the case remains open.

Nerd Products You Won't Find in Stores, Which Parents Need or At Least, Think They Want

Funny 'cause it's true stuff from Sherry:

Item #1) The Screen Killer Destructo Button:  I want the equivalent of a tantalus field in my home, one push of the button, and all screens everywhere in the home shut down.  No TV, no telephones, no computers, no tablets, no kindles, nooks, xboxes, wiiU's, playstations, DS's, iphone watches, ipods, Ipads, any of it, works for the next 2-10 hours, depending upon the setting you use.
