Respecting death; Valuing life
This afternoon we were driving to a house blessing. We got off the interstate and were on a divided four-lane highway for a good while. At some point I noticed that there seemed to be a few cars pulled off the road on the opposite side. I took a good look at the road ahead … Continue reading Respecting death; Valuing life
I can't march tomorrow in Washington. In fact, this post is about all I can do to participate in the March for Life. I've talked many times about abortion over the years. No one can be in any doubt of where I stand. I've prayed. I've cried for the victims: not only the babies lost … Continue reading Silent Tears

Legitimacy and Conscience
Reading Joseph's post on Byzantine TX about the pro-choice Catholic nuns (sounds like an oxymoron, but I guess it's becoming more common...) I was struck by something.
