The Christian Science Monitor kicks off a seven part series looking at the relationship of gay rights issues and religious liberty issues. A lot of the usual posturing but Tom Berg is the voice of reason and sanity in the article. Sadly, his is a lonely voice. It is a bit rich hearing Russell Moore denounce the use of the coercive power of law to define the terms of engagement in the public square as if the religious right has not tried to do that since 1980 when it had the votes to achieve its goals.

The NRA reacts to the Dallas killings, but ignores the others. And, most police officers detest the NRA because they have to face the consequences of the NRA's commitment to making it easier to get a gun than a candy bar. 

Is it just me or is the Lt. Gov. of Texas, Dan Patrick, a raving lunatic? Check this out from Fox News.  He is so concerned about the "real people" killed in Dallas but castigates Black Lives Matter which also cares about real people.

What is going on in the Archdiocese of Louisville? A catechetical forum with Cardinals Arinze and Burke, Bishop Bruskewitz, etc. One half expects them to dig up Lefebvre. I am guessing my invitation got lost in the mail.
