Nationalism, Sectarianism and Elitism (3986)

March 11 issue column on "isms": The Catholic Church embraces all, and in this universality our ethnic, sectarian and elitist divisions vanish.

With planes, trains and automobiles to take us everywhere in the world as fast as we can, and with modern communications that make everyone available to everyone else at any time, you would guess that more and more people would have a global or universal outlook to their lives.

The opposite seems to be the case.

As we are able to communicate globally and travel wherever we want, we seem to be drawing in to ourselves and our own little communities more and more.

A set of “isms” that undergird our secular society is our assumption that one particular group of people or way of thinking is superior or more correct than anyone else.

This assumption that “my group” is right and others are wrong...READ MORE

Examining the Reformation's Claims (4206)

Saturday Book Pick: If Protestantism is True: The Reformation Meets Rome

03/10/2012 Comments (6)

While an undergraduate student, I was fortunate to study under the renowned Catholic apologist Peter Kreeft. At the time, I — like many of my fellow classmates — was a Protestant, and we would frequently ask Dr. Kreeft questions about the differences between Protestants and Catholics. He would always begin with the same provocative statement that I imagine he has used for decades to frustrate earnest Protestants: “The Catholic Church makes claims much greater than any Protestant church. So if they are wrong, the Catholic Church is very arrogant, idolatrous, bad, and the old-fashioned anti-Catholicism is right. But if the claims are true, then everybody should be a Catholic.”

God Values Religious Freedom — Do We? (8814)

As religious liberty loses ground at home and abroad, scholars rally support for an embattled freedom.

03/09/2012 Comments (13)

WASHINGTON — When the Berlin Wall fell, Church leaders anticipated a new springtime for religious liberty. But this fundamental right is under attack at home and abroad, prompting a slew of scholarly initiatives designed to educate the public and build support for the “first freedom.”

This month, Evangelicals and Catholics Together, an 18-year ecumenical initiative designed to identify common theological beliefs and forge joint public witness, published “In Defense of Religious Freedom” in the March issue of First Things, the influential journal of religion and public affairs.

Meanwhile, academic forums like the Berkley Center’s Religious Freedom Project at Georgetown University draw...READ MORE

Pope to U.S. Bishops: Teach Youth About Catholic Vision of Love (4380)

In an address that tackled attempts to redefine marriage, Pope Benedict XVI challenged the bishops of the United States to teach young people an authentic, Catholic vision of sex and love.

“The richness of this vision is more sound and appealing than the permissive ideologies exalted in some quarters; these, in fact, constitute a powerful and destructive form of counter-catechesis for the young,” he said March 9.

The Pope was addressing the bishops of Minnesota, North Dakota and South Dakota. They are currently in Rome as part of their ad limina visit, which involves discussing the health of their dioceses with Pope Benedict and various Vatican departments, as well as making a pilgrimage...READ MORE

Pakistan Remembers Shahbaz Bhatti on First Anniversary of Assassination (3236)

Former minister for minorities, a Catholic who knew his life was in danger, is recalled as a martyr.

03/09/2012 Comments (2)

Christians are a micro-minority in Muslim Pakistan. But the first anniversary of Shahbaz Bhatti’s death has evoked unprecedented interest in the martyr.

Bhatti, a Catholic who served as federal minister for religious minorities, was assassinated on March 2, 2011, for opposing the country’s draconian blasphemy law. Apart from candlelight vigils by secular action groups and memorial services in churches across Pakistan, members in the Pakistani government also have become admirers of Bhatti, who was ambushed and sprayed with bullets in his car in Islamabad.

Prime Minister Yousaf Raza Gilani and President Asif Ali Zardari hailed Bhatti’s contribution and legacy at a March 6 memorial...READ MORE
