    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.

    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...

    Integrated Catholic Life ^ | March 10, 2011 | Dr. Peter Kreeft
    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...

    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...

    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...

    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 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...

It specifically noted the "process of phased, selective divestment from multinational corporations involved in the occupation" now being implemented by the Presbyterian Church (USA).

Hillary Rodham Clinton headlining a campaign fund-raiser. Joining other Democratic women senators at an event for Sen.

    Hillary Clinton is running for president. That's the verdict of the Washington Post, a newspaper that could hardly be described as an organ of Hillary's "vast right-wing conspiracy." "In recent days a half-dozen leading Democrats have delivered major speeches on foreign policy," notes the Post on its Thursday editorial page. "Mostly, they follow a similar track. Presidential candidates Howard Dean, John Edwards, John F. Kerry, Joseph I. Lieberman and Wesley K. Clark and shadow candidate Hillary Clinton accept many of the goals of the Bush administration but diverge sharply on the means to achieve them." A few lines later the...
