Sunday Snippets - A Catholic Carnival

Well, here we are with another “Sunday Snippets.”  I had a number of things on my plate this week:

Monday:  O Tempora, O Mores, in which I reflect on the fact that, even in the decadence of pagan Rome, they had the common sense to know that boys are boys and girls are girls.  There are those in our modern post-Christian world who don’t seem to grasp that.  The title, by the way, which means “O the Times, O the Customs!” is from Cicero’s First Oration Against Catiline.  Cicero would be appalled at some of the shenanigans going on today.

Wednesday: ReligiousLiberty Under Attack.  In a similar vein, state legislators here in Maine can’t seem to bring themselves to vote for a law that requires the state to show “compelling public interest” before restricting our freedom of religion – and will not answer citizens who write to them about it.  Curious.

Thursday: AbortionMyth # 3, in which we apply reason and evidence to the standard arguments offered up by the abortion industry and its apologists – would it surprise you to discover that the abortionists  arguments are not as compelling as they would have you believe?

Friday: St. Paul’sAutographs.  Nothing is wasted in Holy Scripture, folks.

Thanks, feel free to look around; I’m looking forward to exploring the other posts here as well.
