A Catholic Christian Way of Being ‘Green’

Pope Benedict XVI sounded a theme which is common in his locutions and writing; he spoke of a “Human Ecology”.

We need to articulate a new way of being “green”, the Catholic way. That is why Pope Benedict’s calls for a human ecology is so important. Read the full article here:… Read More…

The Christian Vocation and Living in the ‘Fourth Watch of the Night’

We live our lives now in Jesus Christ and we are at home in the Boat of the Church. We can always find Him in the fourth watch of the night, if we choose to respond in faith. When we turn our faith into a verb, we too get our “sea legs” as they say in the nautical culture.

Washington Post: Death penalty pro-life?

Most people expect that there is a positive correlation between being pro-life and supporting the death penalty writes Dr.Richard Land in the Washington post’s “on Faith” Section.Conversely there is also a positive correlation between being pro-choice and being against the death penalty.
Dr.Land writes that many people who are pro-choice point out and talk about Roman Catholic Churches.I am pro-life because the Bible clearly teaches us that life begins at conception.The Bible also tells us God is involved when conception takes place.

Tennessee football coaches told not to bow their heads during student-led prayer

Some football coaches are in trouble for something they did with their players. They said a prayer.

That has the school district taking action.

And the policy, while it may be the law, has plenty of people up in arms.

Every school district has a responsibility to follow the law, and separate private faith from public school. It can be a fine line at times. One crossed in Sumner County, it seems, when the coaches didn’t say a word during a student-led prayer, but they did bow their heads.

In a town like Westmoreland, faith and football seem to matter.

“We’re just respectful, God-fearing people up here,” resident Tony Bentle said.

Bentle called games for Westmoreland High School for 42 years.

“A lot of history. A lot of changes. A lot of football,” he said.

So when he, like a lot of people, heard what happened after a recent game at the middle school.

“It actually blew my mind, that we had come to that point,” he said. “Nobody in this town is offended if you pray. Nobody.”

During a student-originated, student-led prayer, four coaches bowed their heads. They didn’t say a word.

The war against free speech and religious liberty took a strange and disturbing twist last Friday in the town of Westmoreland, Tennessee.

Four public school football coaches were spotted bowing their heads during a student-led prayer. According to reports, the coaches did not initiate the prayer, nor did they utter a word as the students prayed.

For this, they were called on the carpet by school authorities.

WSMV reports the coaches were not disciplined, but were educated on the school’s policy and had to sign a letter acknowledging they understood that policy.

“We’ve been telling our principals to kind of be looking for those things, because that is kind of a shift in how things have been done,” Sumner County Schools spokesperson Jeremy Johnson said. “It can in no way appear like it’s endorsed by Sumner County Schools personnel.”
