    Shortly after Brittany Maynard took her own life, a leading Catholic Church official said assisted suicide was “reprehensible” because it violated the dignity of human life. Monsignor Ignacio Carrasco de Paula, the head of the Pontifical Academy for Life, said “dignity is something other than putting an end to one’s own life,” when asked about Maynard’s decision to kill herself. Carrasco de Paula said “Brittany Maynard’s act is in itself reprehensible, but what happened in the consciousness we do not know.” brittanymaynardHe cautioned that he was not judging individuals “but the gesture in and of itself should be condemned.”...

    A man diagnosed with the same form of brain cancer that led Brittany Maynard to kill herself last weekend says he chose a different path because of his faith in God. Thirteen years ago, David Williams of Newport, Arkansas was told by his doctors that he had a progressive brain tumor called glioblastoma multiforme, and that he had 6 months to a year to live. Williams told WMC TV that although he trusted his doctors, he refused to believe that he couldn't fight the disease and live. As a result of his determination he's undergone surgeries, chemotherapies, takes daily medication,...

    With the sad and scandalous news out of Oregon last night of Brittany Maynard’s state sanctioned suicide, thoughts turn toward the eternal consequences of such actions. The Internet and social media com boxes are full of praise and condolences for the terminally ill young woman and her grieving family. Many have offered their personal belief that Brittany is now in heaven with God who understands (and apparently condones) her decision. Even among professing Catholics there has been an incredible disconnect between what we are called to believe and what some “want” to believe. As word of her suicide was released...

    The decision comes amid a bevy of media stories scrutinizing his past, including three bankruptcies, a short stint in jail and 1996 Federal Trade Commission charges of false advertising in a prior business. Employees of the identity theft-prevention firm were notified Monday of Maynard's resignation. LifeLock officials said Maynard wanted to spend more time with his family and the constant barrage of media inquiries "had become a major addition to his already heavy work load, as well as a distraction for the company."

    I was listening to the Rush Limbaugh Show today and heard Rush start talking about last night's Crossfire Show. I was only half way paying attention when he mentioned a question by Chatsworth Osborne, Jr.. Well I had to think a minute because I knew that name from someplace and then all of a sudden it came to me that it was a character on the old Dobie Gillis show and was played by a very fine character actor named Stephen Franken. The it hit me that Rush was using that moniker for our old friend Tucker Carlson. Well that...

    Santorum, gays and the GOP May 10, 2003 Recent comments by Sen. Rick Santorum (R-Pa.) on homosexuality and the right to privacy raised a few eyebrows in the media and drew condemnation from advocates for gay and lesbian civil rights. Some Democratic presidential candidates criticized Santorum's statements, made in an April 7 interview with The Associated Press, and the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee said he should give up his No. 3 post in the Republican party leadership. But the White House says our "compassionate conservative" president believes Santorum is doing a good job and is "an inclusive man." Senate Majority...
