Strong Catholic Identity Can Protect Religious Liberty (3639)

What increasing threats to colleges mean in light of Ex Corde Ecclesiae.

06/13/2011 Comments (4)

The National Labor Relations Board and the Vatican agree: Catholic colleges should have a strong Catholic identity.

And given increasing threats to the religious liberty of Catholic institutions, that may be a valuable lesson to learn. Legal experts warn that a weak Catholic identity makes for a weak defense against religious-liberty violations.

On May 26, the NLRB’s Chicago director concluded that St. Xavier University, a Sisters of Mercy apostolate, could not demonstrate a “substantial religious character” and, therefore, must accept the NLRB’s authority over faculty union organizing. In January, the agency’s New York office also claimed jurisdiction over Manhattan College, a Christian...READ MORE

Marriage vs. 'Marriage' (3553)

A Register Editorial: Our style reflects an important Church teaching.

06/12/2011 Comments (23)

A recent interview posted at NCRegister.com received quite a bit of attention, particularly from people identifying themselves in online comments as homosexual.

The interview was with Bishop Thomas Tobin of Providence, R.I., in which the bishop offered his thoughts on a controversy in his state over same-sex civil unions. Bishop Tobin’s fear is that settling for this compromise with same-sex “marriage” will leave the door open for that very thing: same-sex “marriage.”

One of the criticisms of the Register’s presentation of this interview, aside from the substance of Bishop Tobin’s argument, was this newspaper’s practice of placing quotation marks around “marriage” when referring to homosexual...READ MORE

A novel about a woman dealing with the death of a child, marital separation and mental illness has been a bestseller on Amazon’s woman’s fiction page in recent months.

MADRID, Spain (CNA) — The Spanish Bishops’ Conference reminded the baptized of their commitment to live the faith with authenticity and to not be content with mediocrity in the Christian life.

On some occasions, the bishops on the committee for lay apostolate warned, all of the baptized “run the risk of getting used to living the faith” and “forgetting that they were grafted into the life of the Christ in virtue of the sacrament of baptism.”

They called on all Christians “not to be content with a mediocre and monotonous Christian life” and said that there is an increasing number of people who call themselves believers but do not live the faith.

The bishops’ message was delivered in a...READ MORE

VATICAN CITY (CNA/EWTN News) — The governments of the world should back “the exploitation of clean-energy sources,” Pope Benedict XVI said June 9.

The Pope made his remarks in an address to a group of ambassadors at the Vatican. His comments came on the same day Switzerland voted to phase out its nuclear- energy program.

“The first half of this year has been marked by many tragedies that have affected nature, technology and people,” the Pope said in reference to the March earthquake in Japan that triggered radioactive leaks at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant.

At the same time, the Pope cautioned, “Man, to whom God has entrusted the safeguarding of nature, cannot be dominated...READ MORE
