Sunday Snippets - A Catholic Carnival (11May 2014)

     Welcome yet again to "Sunday Snippets - A Catholic Carnival", a weekly gathering of Catholic bloggers who trade baseball cards . . . I mean, share their posts for the past week.  The main gathering takes place at This That and the Other Thing under the watchful yet benevolent eye of RAnn [here].
     It's been deja vu all over again here at Principium et Finis.  I seem to keep returning to the themes of freedom, responsibility and truth, and without planning it that way most of the posts below deal with those ideas, with the (possible) exception of "Foggy Mountain Breakdown".

Monday - A follow-up to last week’s “Traditional Marriage: The Liberty Argument” [link]  in this one I discuss the fact that in order to exercise freedom properly, we need proper formation, and what is the time-proven (not to mention God-given) best way to form children into successful adults? “Marriage and Liberty, part two” [link]

Tuesday - All right, so maybe I hyperventilate just a little bit in this one; still, things are getting kind of ugly out there, at least for those who question the party line . . . “Ice Cream Fascism” [link]

     And - The word “Yeehaw” says it all:  “Flatt & Scruggs: Foggy Mountain Breakdown” [link]

Wednesday - After all, only actual persons deserve the protection of the law, right? “Abortion Myth #12” [link]

Thursday - Where did those big churches come from?  And why are they so empty? “The New, New Evangelization?” [link]

Friday - You may be hungry, but no bowl of soup is worth that much: "Being a Christian in the Age of Esau" [link]

Finally, we give the last word this week to Benjamin Franklin: "Those who would give up essential Liberty, to purchase a little temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety."
