    Beyond Vietnam: A Time to Break Silence

    Fifty three years ago Martin Luther King delivered a speech at the Riverside Cathedral in NYC. It is often ignored, but for me it constituted his real final testament. It would be one year later to the day that he was assassinated. After his murder (and RFK’s) Nixon was elected. Most historians...

    Catholics believe that The dignity of man rests above all on the fact that he is called to communion with God. This invitation to converse with God is addressed to man as soon as he comes into being. For if man exists it is because God has created him through love, and through love continues to...

    Do you think Biblical descriptions of angels and demons are about aliens?

I'd consider myself a deist for most parts. I was raised Christian, but I stopped going to church at a young age. I've still always believed...

    'America’s New Religions'

    This is interesting and while I disagree in part, it is still worth a read. Political cults are filling the space left by the decline of organized faiths. "And so we’re mistaken if we believe that the collapse of Christianity in America has led to a decline in religion. It has merely led to...

    Has Religion been a Force for Good (ding vs Karl Rand)

    Anyone else carry concealed to church?

    If you do, why? If you don't, why not? I carry in church because I carry everywhere else. Being in a church doesn't mean there's any less chance of being caught in an active-shooter situation.

Jurisdiction means to speak the law. So who has the ultimate right to speak the law? Is it God, or is it...
