Email Print Mark Shea, in his never ending effort to paint everyone who disagrees with him on the Second Amendment as racists and anti-semites, has a long screed on his blog that may be read here. As usual when it comes to history, Mark is bone ignorant and merely parrots what his leftist sources say. Prior to the Civil War there were laws passed in many of the slave holding states attempting to restrict the right to keep and bear arms to whites. Challenges to these laws by free blacks almost always asserted the Second Amendment. A passage in the Dred Scott decision indicates what a preoccupation blacks carrying weapons was to slaveholders: And all of this would be done in the face of the subject race of the same color, both free and slaves, inevitably producing discontent and insubordination among them, and endangering the peace and safety of the State. In the case of Florida v.

Cardinal Newman Society – Even as Catholics celebrate this week’s announcement that The Catholic University of America will return to single-sex dorms, a new report identifies a thriving “hook-up” culture on Catholic college campuses and warns of the emotional and physical costs of casual sex among students. The report, published by The Cardinal Newman Society CNS Center for the Advancement of Catholic Higher Education, reviews the social science literature that has been published over the last twenty years on student behavior and college policies, including the impact of single-sex residences.
Anne Hendershott and Nicholas Dunn. The authors note studies showing that heavy use of alcohol correlates strongly with promiscuity on college campuses, and both are tied to co-ed living arrangements. They cite data indicating that students in co-ed dorms are roughly twice a likely to drink heavily and engage in binge drinking, and also to have multiple sexual partners.
These problems are confronted by student affairs administrators and residence hall staff, who often are expected to be non-judgmental and are not well-trained how to operate in a Catholic living environment. The report is a product of The Cardinal Newman Society’s Love and Responsibility Program, which helps Catholic colleges and universities develop a campus culture where students embrace an assumption of sobriety and chastity.
CNS is working with experts in the fields of psychology, sociology, theology, student affairs and campus ministry to identify programs and policies that can be tested and replicated on both Catholic and secular campuses.

It goes on all the time, but I admit, I never thought I would see the Roman Catholic Church be part of such shenanigans. We all saw it last week. Colorful, yes, but not pretty.

De Maria November 8, at 7: As it is written. He that is unmarried careth for the things that belong to the Lord, how he may please the Lord: Talk about separating body and soul.

Adam and Peter Lanza on a hike when Adam was about ten. People sent candy, too, and when I visited Peter, last fall, he showed me a bag of year-old caramels. He had not wanted to throw away anything that people sent.
“For Catholic colleges that are faithful to Catholic teaching and share concern for the moral development of students, the ‘hook-up’ culture is a scandal and an embarrassment,” said Patrick J. Reilly, President of The Cardinal Newman Society.
Drive to the east and Canal Street to the south. The neighborhood is bordered in the south and west by Chinatown — which extends north to roughly Grand Street, in the west by Nolita and in the north by the East Village. History[ edit ] Prior to Europeans[ edit ] As was all of Manhattan Island, the area now known as the Lower East Side was occupied by members of the Lenape tribe, who were organized in bands which moved from place to place according to the seasons, fishing on the rivers in the summer, and moving inland in the fall and winter to gather crops and hunt for food.
Their main trail took approximately the route of Broadway. Around these farms were a number of enclaves of free or “half-free” Africans, which served as a buffer between the Dutch and the Native Americans.

New pics released from Newtown shooting But during that long descent, Lanza never gave anyone any indication that he would one day turn a gun on his mother and then storm his onetime grade school with a semiautomatic rifle, killing 20 first-graders and six adults, investigators reported Monday. And so Connecticut authorities closed the book on the second-deadliest shooting in U. Lanza shot himself at the end of his minute rampage, and police found no sign that he “voiced or gave any indication to others that he intended to commit such a crime himself,” according to a page summary of the investigation, released Monday.
Though he had attended Sandy Hook from first through fifth grades, investigators found no sign the year-old was targeting any student, teacher or other employee at the school. Worst mass shootings in the United States Photos:
Of all the books written on the sex abuse crisis which shook the Catholic Church in America in , one of the most thoroughly-researched was The Faithful ed by the journalist and.
New York Times columnist David Brooks waxed poetic Monday about Santorum’s Catholic conservative sensibilities and touted the candidate as an authentic antidote to “the corporate or financial wing of the party. Santorum is more comfortable with communitarian language, has been a strong supporter of foreign aid to impoverished countries and connects with personal stories of his blue-collar upbringing. But it’s a political delusion to think Rick Santorum is a standard-bearer of authentic Catholic values in politics.
In fact, on several issues central to Catholic social teaching — torture, war, immigration, climate change, the widening gap between rich and poor and workers’ rights – Santorum is radically out of step with his faith’s teachings as articulated by Catholic bishops and several popes over the centuries. Immigration Catholic bishops , priests and women religious have been at the forefront of the fight for comprehensive immigration reform. Catholic leaders have called for an earned path to citizenship for undocumented immigrants and consistently oppose draconian policies that break up families.
Santorum has publicly challenged the Catholic bishops on this issue, telling the Des Moines Register: He blithely said of those facing deportation to Mexico a country currently ravaged by grinding poverty and gang violence that “we’re not sending them to any kind of difficult country. Poverty, Inequality and Financial Regulation Pope Benedict XVI has decried the ” scandal of glaring inequalities ” between rich and poor, and Catholic social teaching supports a more just distribution of wealth.
Santorum, in contrast, told the Des Moines Register: I think some people should make more than other people because some people work harder and have better ideas and take more risks, and they should be rewarded for it.
Year One On the subject of Batman’s religious affiliation, there is some disagreement among fans as well as among writers about whether the character is a mostly lapsed Catholic or a mostly lapsed Episcopalian.

And a once-proud people cowed into submission. I told her I did not think that the full story had been told. She asked if I thought it was an inside job by the government. Again I told her that I was not an expert on this subject, but that I did not think that the official story was the full truth. She then said that she was getting uncomfortable and that she needed to ask me a question as a litmus test before proceeding further: I was at a loss for a moment.
I knew I had heard of it. What was it again?
Share Article It seems that easy sex is rampant on college campuses today, but new research reveals that students really want romance. When Donna Freitas offered a class on dating and spirituality at St. Is it like this elsewhere? She found casual sex on all but the evangelical campuses, but she also found that students lie about how much sex they have and about liking the culture of casual sex.
Hook-up culture is often violent. The opening story that captures the stereotypes about hook-up culture makes it seem as though people have sex without consequences, neither positive ones, like a relationship, nor negative ones, like rape or assault.
By Brother Nathanael Kapner Copyright There are so many unanswered questions regarding the Sandy Hook killings that it not only boggles the mind but inspires anger and legitimate outrage.
