    Pope Francis met Palestinian president Mahmud Abbas on Saturday, calling him “an angel of peace,” days after the Vatican said it was preparing to sign its first accord with Palestine to the anger of Israel. Abbas met the pontiff for about 20 minutes for a private audience, a meeting that comes a day before the pope is due to canonise two Palestinian nuns, who will become the first Palestinian Arabs to gain sainthood.

  • The Gospel according to "Glee"? (live-and-let-live attitude toward sexual politics & religion)

    Patheos ^ | 02/23/2012 | Brian Kirk
    Does high school musical sitcom "Glee" go out of its way to be hostile to Christianity? Some may think so, given the matter-of-fact treatment in so many episodes of teen drinking, drug use, sex, pregnancy, and its acceptance of same-gendered relationships. As a progressive Christian and fan of the show, even I wonder at times if they are pushing the envelope a bit too far. I've often commented that I'm not sure younger teens should be watching the show. It is, after all, an exaggerated, satirical look at how adults view adolescence. I'd be a little worried if some middle-schooler...
  • Comparing Christianity and the New Paganism

    Comparing Christianity and the New Paganism The most serious challenge for Christianity today isn't one of the other great religions of the world, such as Islam or Buddhism. Nor is it simple atheism, which has no depth, no mass appeal, no staying power. Rather, it's a religion most of us think is dead. That religion is paganism — and it is very much alive. Paganism is simply the natural gravity of the human spirit, the line of least resistance, religion in its fallen state. The "old" paganism came from the country. Indeed, the very word "paganism" comes from the Latin...
  • Pope Seeks "Global Authority" For Economy

    Reuters ^ | 7 July 09 | Philip Pullella
    VATICAN CITY (Reuters) – Pope Benedict on Tuesday called for a "world political authority" to manage the global economy and for more government regulation of national economies to pull the world out of the current crisis and avoid a repeat. The pope's call for a re-think of the way the world economy is run came in new encyclical which touched on a number of social issues but whose main connecting thread was how the current crisis has affected both rich and poor nations. Called "Charity in Truth," parts of the encyclical appeared bound to upset conservatives because of its underlying...

    A West Babylon woman had sex with a 14-year-old student in the Queens classroom where she is a middle school teacher - and was caught when the boy's mother heard rumors and found hundreds of text messages and calls between the two, authorities said Friday. Melissa Weber, 27, pleaded not guilty Friday morning during her arraignment in Queens Criminal Court to seven counts of second-degree rape, 14 counts of third-degree sexual abuse and one count of endangering the welfare of a child. If convicted, she faces up to 7 years in prison. Weber, a social studies and homeroom teacher at...

    Madonna Compares McCain to Hitler, Obama to Gandhi Photo of Noel Sheppard. By Noel Sheppard (Bio | Archive) August 24, 2008 - 11:00 ET In case you missed it with the Olympics going on, Russia invading Georgia, and the campaign for president in full swing, pop star Madonna started her much-awaited tour in Wales Saturday. Amidst the requisite autoerotic writhing and gyrating, Madonna managed to bash John McCain -- actually equating him to Adolf Hitler and Robert Mugabe! -- while comparing Barack Obama to Mahatma Gandhi. I kid you not. As reported by the Associated Press Saturday (emphasis added, photo...

    The story isn't that the Democrats finally took on Hillary Clinton. Nor is it that they were gentlemanly to the point of gingerly and tentative. There was an air of "Please, somebody kill her for me so I can jump in and show high minded compassion at her plight!" Barack Obama, with his elegance and verbal fluency really did seem like that great and famous political figure from his home state of Illinois--Adlai Sevenson, who was not at all hungry, not at all mean, and operated at a step removed from the grubby game. Mr. Obama is like someone who...

    National Review ^ | 07/30/2007 | John J. Pitney Jr.
    In a weekend speech to College Democrats, Senator Hillary Clinton discussed her proposal for a West Point for bureaucrats. Not only is it a silly idea on its face, but the fine print contains additional embarrassment “I’m going to be asking a new generation to serve,” she said. “I think just like our military academies, we need to give a totally all-paid education to young men and women who will serve their country in a public-service position.” She has introduced legislation (S. 960) to establish a United States Public Service Academy. According to the bill text, such a school is...

    It seemed like the perfect gimmick: a celebrity porn star would launch her own wine, with her alluring picture on the label. Savanna Samson did just that, but when it received a score of 90 to 91 out of 100 by wine guru Robert Parker, the project became serious. It turns out Samson, the star of "The New Devil in Miss Jones," has produced an exceptional wine, becoming the toast of two industries: wine-making and pornography. "I never wanted to just do gimmick. That would just happen with me being a porn star, me having a photographer shoot the label,...

    In three years, the United States will know who the Democratic and Republican nominees for president will be. Today, many have anointed their choice of Democratic nominee, Sen. Hillary Clinton from New York. In choosing a president, the country is, of course, also choosing a commander-in-chief, the most solemn of jobs performed by the president as he or she undertakes to "provide for the common defense."

    WASHINGTON -- Members of the inner circle of high-ranking House Republicans privately agree that Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton of New York is an absolute lock for the 2008 Democratic presidential nomination and will not be easy to defeat in the general election. The same lawmakers believe the Republican race to oppose Clinton is wide open but regard Sen. George Allen of Virginia as having the edge over Sen. Bill Frist of Tennessee. The consensus among them is that Allen is a better candidate than Frist and will the advantage over him in GOP primaries. The House members see little or...

    Today Sean Hannity had Peter Paul on his show. Who is Peter Paul? Well you may ask, he is the primary organizer of the August 12, 2000 Hollywood Gala Salute to President Clinton. According to the website Hillcap this was a combination Salute and Fundraiser for Hillary's 2000 Senatorial campaign. The gala ended up costing Paul 1.2 million dollars and raised one-million dollars in hard money for Hillary's coffers. The problem, Hillary's campaign only declared a cost of $400 thousand resulting in a net additional $800 thousand of "in kind" contribution by Paul. Why is this a problem? Because under...

    An organization representing up to half a billion Christians worldwide has encouraged its member churches to divest from companies that participate in "illegal activities" in the West Bank and Gaza Strip. The central committee of the World Council of Churches, which represents more than 340 Protestant and Orthodox churches in more than 120 countries, announced the decision on Monday, toward the conclusion of the governing body's meeting in Geneva. It specifically noted the "process of phased, selective divestment from multinational corporations involved in the occupation" now being implemented by the Presbyterian Church (USA). "This action is commendable in both method...
