Every time I turn on the news I hear about some group who is trying to strip God out of the culture. They don't want prayer in school, God on our money, the 10 commandments in court rooms, Christian clubs to meet on college campuses (but Sex Week is fine), manger scenes on lawns, I could go on and on.., but you get the point. To me, this just defies logic! I have to wonder what is in the heart ...
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 ...
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. Why? Can it be that Francis is the fellow traveler that the left-wing press has been making him out to be? Resoundingly, Roman Catholic writer ...

Here’s today’s dispatch from the crossroads of faith, media and culture. Jumping the snark.

I objected when Alonso Duralde made the compassionately honest Gimme Shelte r out to be some sort of judgmental screed against anyone who supporte ...
Here’s today’s dispatch from the crossroads of faith, media and culture. A Legacy of Laughs. As you no doubt have read by now Harold Ramis is dead. The prolific and talented writer-director-actor's filmography includes such iconic comedies as Animal House (1978), Meatballs (1979), Caddyshack (1980), Stripes (1981), National Lampoon's Vacation (1983), Ghostbusters (1984) Groundhog D ...
Happy Valentine's Day! I am biased towards appreciating Valentine's Day not just for it's Gujarati origins but also because it's my birthday. However, not all Muslims share my appreciation. Here's a typical example : In its official Friday sermon text distributed to mosques in the Muslim-majority country, the Malaysian Islamic Development Department blamed Valentine's Day for everything ...
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.
