Frank Fear: Francis doesn’t like how the Church is doing business. He’s a Progressive, not a company man. He expects the Church, as an institution, to practice what it preaches. He wants Sunday morning rhetoric to carry through the week.
Rev. Irene Monroe: As quietly as the Church has tried to keep it, the Catholic Church is a gay institution. And that is not a bad thing!
Randy Shaw: Many white Americans yearn for the days when racism was not “an issue.” White attitudes toward George Zimmerman’s actions confirm this.
Bill Fletcher: The “circle of clowns” of Republican candidates seems increasingly intent on proving that they are the voices of ignorance, fear and irrationalism. I cannot get over it.
David Love: Republicans are once again turning President Obama’s faith into a political issue. But will their strategy work? History and hypocrisy suggest that the political gamesmanship won’t succeed.
Friday Feedback: The idiocy of thinking that our species can continue to multiply on a globe of limited size seems a rather simple concept to get, which involves all of our survival.
Jim Rhodes: Not since 9-11 has the United States witnessed such callous demigods hellbent on destroying individual liberty as currently being showcased in the Republican primaries.
Walter Moss: The main reason that Obama is not at “war” with the Catholic Church is that the U. S. bishops ARE NOT the Catholic Church in the United States.
Steve Ybarra: Newtron signals the beginning of this war by asking people to go and talk to the “Bishops” and hear for themselves that the Catholic Church is being destroyed by these edicts. Wait, ask the BISHOPS!?!
Carl Matthes: Society has learned that the force which drives sexually-based assault and abuse is not easily categorized, understood or rooted out. What is understood is that this force is not driven by sexual need; men turn their physical and manipulative powers into a destructive force.
Leonard Steinhorn: Thanks to a new report released by the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, we now have a group of people singularly deserving of blame: baby boomers.
Tina Dupuy: Many studies have found Americans are not more religious in practice than people in other nations. We just lie to pollsters as to what we’re doing on Sundays.
Anthony Samad: The presence of gay men in black churches, and not just in the choir, is significant. This is an issue waiting to break in probably every city in America. And it’s not that the congregation doesn’t know it. It is now the silent concern in the black church.
