  • How Should Christians Engage with Culture?

    Bible Gateway ^ | July 3, 2018 | Philip Yancey
    The shift in American society from admiring Christians to fearing and criticizing them provides an opportunity for self-reflection. How have we been presenting the message we believe in? Might there be a more grace-filled way?Some want to focus on personal morality and leave public morality to secular politicians. Others seek ways to guide the broader culture while still communicating grace. Rather than propose a single path, I will instead make some observations and suggestions for Christians to consider as we interact with a world that does not always share our views.Clashes Between Christ and Culture Are UnavoidableJohn Howard Yoder recounted...

  • Bishop suggests excommunication for Catholics implementing border enforcement

    (Newsmax) – Last week, Bishop Edward Weisenburger of Tucson called upon his fellow bishops to issue a "prophetic statement" on immigration that would support "canonical penalties for Catholics who are involved" in implementing President Trump's immigration policy. Why would the thought of excommunication even enter the mind of Bishop Weisenburger? Does he mean to say that any Catholic Border Patrol Agent or ICE Officers enforcing the law are "obstinately preserving in manifest grave sin"? If so, what is the "grave sin" that meets the criterion of excommunication according to Canon 915? The 19,500 employees of the U. S. Border...

    Teleios conducted a survey regarding faith and politics on two Instagram accounts frequented by Christian adolescents and millennials. Of the 336 responses the majority were: female (62%), <34 years old (79%), from the United States (80%) and evangelical (76%). The majority of respondents (70%) indicated their faith was 'somewhat' to 'very outreach oriented' with only 19% saying it was private. Almost 80% 'somewhat agreed' to 'strongly agreed' that their country was founded on Christian morality and ethics. Further, over 92% noted it was important to maintain Christian morals and ethics in society. Regarding the current American president, Donald Trump, 63%...

    Archbishop Charles Chaput 222 North 17th Street Philadelphia, PA 19103 Dear Archbishop Chaput, I just read your First Things essay "What Happens in Germany",which was forwarded to me by Fr.

    "It's been an authentic genocide, according to the definition in international law." “For me, it has been a very intense experience to be in those towns, which have been destroyed, laid waste by persecution. It’s been an authentic genocide, according to the definition in international law.” These are Fernando de Haro’s words to Aleteia, after spending the past several days “overwhelmed by news of 850 families who had returned to their towns after the defeat of Daesh, and that had to flee once more due to the confrontation between Kurds and Iraqis.” De Haro is the director of a new...

    For many years the Bishops of the United States have worked for comprehensive Immigration Reform. In recent times the issues surrounding immigrants have become more intense and complicated, more divisive, and more fraught with difficulties for our immigrant brothers and sisters.Last September the Administration in Washington announced it was phasing out a program called DACA — Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program — established in 2012 to grant at a two-year renewal interval amnesty against deportation. The program concerned those undocumented immigrants who were brought to the United States as children or teenagers. In most cases these young people have...
