Yes, that’s right: I’m still watching RealCatholicTV.com. However, I do not agree with everything they say, and I do not endorse them. There are a number of websites that I do endorse without agreeing with everything on them (such as Ancient Faith Radio and some theology of the body websites), so what’s different about RealCatholicTV.com. The difference is the amount of damage done to the Church.

I’m a few days late on this one. I wanted to comment on this on Sunday, but I was trying to get a new parish website up and running and prepare a slideshow for RCIA, so I wasn’t able to do much but save this quote:
“Today marks the 38th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, the Supreme Court decision that protects women’s health and reproductive freedom, and affirms a fundamental principle: that government should not intrude on private family matters.”
There are two terms I often hear being misused: bipolar and schizophrenic. I find the misuse of these terms somewhat distressing and disturbing, particularly when the person misusing these terms is someone I have great admiration for, such as the pope. For those of you that don’t know, the reason I’m sensitive to this issue is because I have been diagnosed with schizoaffective disorder (basically a combination of schizophrenia and either bipolar disorder or major depression; I have a depressive subtype.)
People misuse these terms because they have misconceptions of what these terms really mean, and apply these misconceived ideas to other areas, such as politics. This only reinforces the misconceptions, especially when it is in mass media that is supposed to be reporting factual information.
If you support abortion,
you’re not Catholic!
Alright, I got a little too excited yesterday when I read about the March 9th release of the New American Bible Revised Edition (NABRE) and completely missed this sentence:
“It retains the 1986 edition of the New Testament.”
(This post has erroneous information in it. Please read my next post.)
I guess I’m a real Bible nerd since I’m marked March 9th on my calendar (OK, in iCal, which my iPod is synced to). This is the date a new Catholic translation of the Bible will become available (I hope an ePub format will be available).
The following quote comes from the CatholicCulture.org article “Copts celebrate Christmas amid tight security; ‘human shields.’”
