If I Am a Moral Relativist, So is God

Date: 04/17/2014

Evidently, I am a moral relativist. In a recent article, I applauded a colleague for adapting to our school stage a play— Songs for a New World.  This play, I contended, marked a quite radical departure from the standard Politically Correct line insofar as it resoundingly affirmed “the morality of individuality.”  This phrase, I noted, was coined by a conservative philosopher, Michael Oakeshot ...

Date: 04/04/2014

Much to the disappointment of this Catholic, Pope Francis balked on a golden opportunity to convey to the world just how fundamentally, how vehemently, the vision of the Church differs from that of President Obama when the two met a couple of weeks back.

Go see "Son of God" -- no matter what The Wrap's atheist critic snarks

Date: 02/27/2014

Here’s today’s dispatch from the crossroads of faith, media and culture. Jumping the snark. For the second time in a matter of weeks I find myself taking issue with a critic from The Wrap (a site I otherwise enjoy and have even written for ). I objected when Alonso Duralde made the compassionately honest Gimme Shelte r out to be some sort of judgmental screed against anyone who supporte ...

30 Days of Love: faith and social justice

Date: 02/09/2014

Today's 30 Days of Love prompt is to look at the social justice programs of another faith. Initially I thought I'd write about engaged Buddhism again, as many Americans are unfamiliar with it. But when I went to look for social justice images to use in today's post, I found this one, courtesy of U. S. Catholic . It comes from an article I must have been meant to see, as it's a topic I oft ...
