All the news I wish to print

There are all kinds of stories out there. Some will make you laugh, some will make you cry. Some will make you shrug, some will make you scream. Read any daily paper or listen to any newscast and your emotions can go from happy to sad to disbelief to fear to incredulity to horror to anger in very short order.
As we go along, there will be stories, as Paul Harvey used to say, to "wash your ears out with." There will be others that will make you feel like you need to be deloused simply by virtue of have in heard or read them. Some posts will be religious, some secular and for some I expect will defy easy classification in either category. I hope you will join me in this journey and pleas feel free to comment along the way.
For my part I pledge not to remove any posts unless they are vulgar, libelous, threatening or otherwise in violation of the standards of civil discussion. I will not remove any post simply because I disagree with it but I will reserve the right to respond to any challenges that come my way.
God bless you and welome to my blog.

Moral relativism and religious freedom

In an article over at we have a classic example of what happens when we allow our religous liberty to be chipped away at as it has been for quite a few years now. Much of what has been reported here and elsewhere has concerned public displays of a religious nature or religious expression in public schools. The anti religious bigots are no longer satisfied with suppressing protected speech in the public square, they have now set their sites on free open expression of the Catholic Faith in a Catholic school!

This from the article: "'“The program offered by Loyola seems to target the teaching content similar to that of the Ministry, but the perspective adopted is unquestionably religious,' wrote judge Jacques Fournier, whose decision was supported by judges Allan Hilton and Richard Wagner."

Yeah well I guess that is shocking. After all the last thing one should expect to find in a Catholic school would be a religious perspective, right? Can anyone please tell me what planet these judges are from because they are clearly operating on a different plane of existence than that of rational human beings.
