To laugh or to cry? No real need for comment on this commentary by Matt Bowman at The essay would be flunked in a freshman theology class. 

At Catholic New World, Archbishop Blase Cupich recaps the responses collected to the Archdiocese of Chicago's consultations in advance of the synod on the family. 

Ever more shrill and hysterical, Professor Robert P. George at First Things on the "mob" advocating for LGBT rights. Whether you agree with those advocates or not, or whether you agree with them on something and not others, calling them a "mob" is not the kind of elucidation of ideas one expects from academics. I am informed by good sources that the proper term for a group of LGBT rights advocates is a gaggle, which sounds cheerful, not a mob, which sounds threatening. Joking aside, I will have more on Professor George's commentary tomorrow.
