- You might think that putting crucifixes in classrooms of a Catholic University would be non-controversial, but if you did, you would be wrong. Apparently some faculty at Boston College think it means "imposing" Catholicism on all. Why would anyone attend or work at a Catholic school and not expect Catholicism to be taught? Maybe because one famous BC prof (Kreeft) says the "BC" stands for "Barely Catholic".
- Fr. Thomas Berg of the Westchester Institute has issued a very heartfelt letter about Fr. Maciel. He expresses his pain, frustration and hope. I highly recommend a reading. Thanks to Patrick Madrid for it.
- "Italy's Terri Shiavo" has died. Her name was Eluana Englaro. She starved to death after having her feeding tube removed.
- Hans Kung opens mouth and inserts foot. He thinks that Obama would be a better Pope than Benedict XVI and that "The mood in the church is oppressive, reforms are paralyzed, and the church in crisis, Benedict is unteachable in matters of birth control and abortion, arrogant and without transparency and restrictive of freedom and human rights.” So, the Pope is unteachable and Kung is the teacher? I think he has it backwards.
