    • The Celibacy Wars: A Reason for Hope? August 9, 2014
      Quite suddenly, my news feeds are full of stories and opinion pieces on celibacy and gay Christians, from the evangelical Christian Charisma News and the like on the one hand, to the gay Advocate on the other. On the religious…Read more →

    • Pope Francis: The Family as a “Centre of Love” – and Inclusion. August 8, 2014
      In a message to the First Latin American Congress on the Pastoral Care of the Family in Panama, Pope Francis’ thoughts on the nature of family deserve close attention by LGBT Catholics. What is the family? Beyond its more pressing problems…Read more →

      Whew! It's time to catch my breath. Since the release of Queer Clergy in February, I've been on the road ... Minnesota, Wisconsin, Illinois, and California. I have been the guest of book clubs, adult forums, LGBT reconciling groups, the Pacific School of Religion, and I've been a guest preacher (always a treat for an old lawyer). I've mad […]

    • Quote of the Day August 18, 2014
      Without really meaning to, Kate Bush has stood for many things. She has stood for English pop as a discrete idiom, sheared free of its American roots. She has stood firmly for artistic independence in the face of corporate will, by standing up to record-company bosses and by forming her own management and publishing companies at an age most of us are prepare […]

      .Come to our aid, O Beloved!Darkness seems to pervade the earth;Where is the faith, the integritythat once lived in our hearts?Where is the truth, the trustthat made its home in us?– Excerpted from Psalm 12(as translated by Nan C. Merrill inPsalms for Praying: An Invitation to Wholeness)Perhaps, like me, you are feeling overwhelmed by the chaos, death and de […]

    • SNAP Fundraising Drive: Please Consider Donating August 18, 2014
      The critically important support organization for survivors of clerical sexual abuse, SNAP, has a fundraising drive underway right now. I'd like to draw readers' attention to the drive. As the video at the head of the posting states, at present, SNAP support groups in the U.S. are confined primarily to large urban areas. SNAP is trying to expand it […]

      Sister Elizabeth Johnson, as she accepted the the top award of the Leadership Conference of Religious Women last week: The submerged female half of the church, indeed of the human race, is rising, and the faith we pass on to the next generations will be poorer if women’s insights are ignored.In taking this path, I and today’s cohort of women theologians are […]

    • The travails of young love July 30, 2014
      On a bit of a hiatus from blogging for the summer as I recollect my spirit, but I may have some reflections to share this weekend about the difficulties of young love. Been listening to tales of heartbreak from some of my young students. And young River Viiperi has broken from his partner of two years, Paris Hilton, so these must be difficult days for him as […]

    • Papa Francesco does it again July 14, 2014
      Well, the whole world - or at least the semi Christian world - is all a flutter over yet another freewheeling interview of Pope Francis conducted by acknowledged atheist and La Republica journalist Eduardo Scalfari. Before the ink had barely dried, Father Lombardi of The Vatican Press Office was already huffing out his damage control , assuring us that Scalf […]

      借り入れまでの審査時間の短さで、キャッシング先を消費者金融にしようと決めた方もどこの消費者金融がよいのかで困っていませんか?消費者金融でもトップといってもよいプロミスとアコム、借りるならどっちを選ぶとよいのでしょうか。プロミスの最大の特徴は、金利の低さでしょう。プロミスの金利幅は、4.5%~17.8%の実質年率となっています。比較してアコムの金利幅は4.7%~18.0%となっています。(アコムカードローンでの金利となり、アコムクレジットカードでのキャッシング金利は違ってきます。)また、無利息サービスもプロミスは、プロミスポイントサービスにお申込された方が対象に行われています。一方のアコムでは、無利息は期間限定のサービスとなっています。いずれも無利息になるためには条件があるのですが、プロミスではポイントサービスへ […]

    • And more on Hans Urs von Balthasar August 19, 2014
      After seeing Karen Kilby's talk in my previous post, I was intrigued to see that Fr. Baron had a couple of video talks on von Balthasar as well. Usually I find Fr. Baron too conservative, but his take on the Swiss Jesuit was interesting ... I didn't know, for instance, that he was a fan of Mozart :) ...
