The Vatican scores an ‘own goal.’
Tomorrow opens Fourteenth Ordinary General Assembly of the Synod of Bishops in Rome. The purpose of the meeting is “the vocation and mission of the family in the Church and in the contemporary world.” Traditional, observant Catholics are waiting upon the outcome with a feeling of dread.

Vatican Searches the Heavens for Alien Life — Really? (Really, really)
(And now for something completely different) today’s news that the Vatican is searching the Heavens for alien life follows previous announcements by the Vatican that belief in the existence of alien life and belief in Christianity are not incompatible.

Principles mean more than favorability to the Pope? Heaven forbid!
Originally on The Point. Pope Benedict XVI has sparked international outrage with his statements regarding his rejection of using condoms to fight the AIDS epidemic. From time to time I see this happen, and I never understand why people suddenly act outraged at teachings the Catholic Church has always held. The Catholic Church rejects the use of condoms because they create a barrier to life | Read More »
GAY WATCH: GWB, THE POPE, U.N., OBAMA It never seems to end.

Pope to Biden: End the greed, beware of idolatry
I do not mean to make light of (my) Pontiff’s words, however considering Senator Biden’s latest gimmick — a release of his tax records, I had to draw his profound lack of charitable giving into comparison. Regarding Pope Benedict’s “idolatry” comments, well I’ll leave it for Sen. Biden to ensure he doesn’t fall any further for The One. As seen above (and noted here by | Read More »
