The blogosphere has been all abuzz with reactions to Catholic intellectual Joseph Bottum’s recent meandering piece on same sex marriage. The Sexual Revolutionaries consider Bottum’s support of redefining marriage a coup, while supporters of natural marriage are naturally disappointed.

Petition to thank Father Sauppe

August 12th, 2013 Comments off

Father Timothy Sauppe wrote a moving and courageous article about the pain of closing, and then razing, the Catholic school in his parish in Peoria.  In one of the pre-closure brain-storming sessions the teachers asked what to do to get more students.
