    On March 18, 2018, the Archdiocese of Los Angeles, during its annual Religious Education Congress, offered the following workshop: "Teaching Mercy: Accompanying LGBT Students." The workshop focused on helping "educators discern a merciful balance between teaching doctrine and offering pastoral care as they accompany LGBT students through journeys of self-discovery and self-acceptance." The presenters were Fr. Chris Ponnet (pictured above), Arthur Fitzmaurice, and Ish Ruiz. Ponnet was ordained in 1983 and serves as "spiritual director" for the Archdiocese's Catholic Ministry with Lesbian and Gay Persons (CMLGP). Following the 2016 Congress, after a same-sex couple and their son presented the gifts to...

    The Archdiocese of Los Angeles caused a stir by distributing an invitation to a Mass at its cathedral in partnership with a clinic that prescribes contraceptives. After receiving inquiries regarding a partnership with an organization that acts in conflict with the teachings of Catholic Church, the archdiocese acted to amend its invitation. But it’s not clear whether the clinic remains involved. No disavowal of the clinic has been made. The Mass commemorating the birth of Blessed Archbishop Oscar Romero is scheduled for August 13 with Los Angeles Archbishop Jose Gomez as the celebrant, according to information provided anonymously to the Canon212...

    Texas Republican congressman Blake Farenthold refused to ask Eric Holder questions during a Judiciary Committee hearing Tuesday, saying the attorney general should “be in jail” for ignoring congressional subpoenas instead of testifying before Congress. Farenthold’s turn for questions came towards the end of a contentious hearing. The lawmaker explained that he would not exercise his right to question the witness as a protest against Holder’s refusal to comply with congressional subpoenas for documents related to the IRS’ Tea Party targeting investigation. “I’m committed to maintaining the constitutional balance of power and the authority this branch, this legislative branch, has,” Farenthold...

    A year after arriving in Los Angeles, the youngest archbishop in the U.S. Catholic Church had a schedule and an agenda befitting a presidential candidate. advertisement Roger Mahony raced around the city in a chauffeured sedan, exhorting labor leaders to support immigrant rights and rallying hundreds against a proposed prison in Boyle Heights. Where his predecessors had talked up praying the rosary, Mahony touted his positions on nuclear disarmament and Middle East peace, porn on cable TV and AIDS prevention. No issue seemed outside his purview: When an earthquake struck El Salvador, he cut a $100,000 check. When a 7-year-old...

    Grand Prairie-bred pop star, singer and actress Selena Gomez took the stage on her home turf Thursday as the halftime performer during the Thanksgiving Day football game between the Dallas Cowboys and the Oakland Raiders at AT&T Stadium in Arlington. In part a product of the Disney Channel family, Gomez is clearly making a classier transition from adorable to adult compared to many of her peers (ahem, Miley). She was a vixen at center field Thursday, sporting a floor length skirt of leather fringe and golden, knee-high wedges. From hair and makeup to style and grace, Gomez exuded confidence and...

As his time in the U.S. lengthened, the more he decided he wanted to stay. There was just one problem: He had only a student visa. snip Chicago Cardinal Francis George told attendees the need for constant dialogue to accomplish its goals in life was imperative. He noted the need to counter the current "endemic anti-Catholicism" in the country. "We cannot be passive," the archbishop said. "The church calls us to be in the forefront of the...

Chaput of Philadelphia today praised the work of the Catholic Association of Latino Leaders. “Hispanic culture still has a soul formed by an encounter with Jesus Christ, and the humanity and compassion that flow from it,” Archbishop Chaput said Aug. 23 at the association's national conference. “These things are worth fighting for and sharing with others. Faith matters because it gives meaning to the word ‘human’ in ‘human beings.’ It matters because it makes...

    "...It is curious that as Catholic leaders are campaigning essentially for amnesty, providing a plethora of images of “needy,” “struggling” families being “welcomed” by those who supposedly have “more,” there is scarce mention of another concept that many of these same Catholic leaders have highly prized, particularly in their recent struggles with the U.S. government: the rule of law. The notion that those who have come to the United States illegally should be exempted from the nation’s laws is not only not mentioned by these Catholic leaders, but also seemingly dismissed. The fact that many Americans have been the victims...

    Republicans have talked about pursuing a different kind of candidate since what seems like forever. Heck, the national party even convened a special, secret task force just for that purpose late last year, after losing key demographic groups such as women and Hispanics. Yet, given exactly the kind of candidate they hire people to find out in the hinterlands, Republicans are oddly not engaged with helping him cross the finish line in a special election that would significantly stun Democrats. Gabriel Gomez is a Massachusetts Republican running to fill John Kerry's vacated U.S. Senate seat; the 47-year-old political newcomer is...
