How to be saved with the Catholic Church

In 1975 a young man made a statement to the Catholic Church to inform them that he had been abused – that is sexually assaulted on more that one occasion by one of their priests.  He also reported that other children were also being abused by the same priest. He was as much concerned for them as he was for himself. He met the church officials and gave his story while his father was asked to remain outside the room. He answered their questions honestly, even providing the names and addresses…

Maps: Comparison of Beliefs

The following maps were originally published by the London Times Faith Central blog. It's an interesting contrast between religion and science.

Why I left your religion...not that I think I ever had one

My mother is Jewish...very non-practicing (closet Atheist), my father claims Buddhist (I still say closet Atheist.) The only religion I was exposed to was by way of a distant relative for a holiday or going to church with my baby sitter. Other than that I really never got an explication about "God." My parents never, even to this day tried to explain god to me. I do not remember ever asking either, I never felt I needed an explication. I just knew that I didn't believe in one.

My baby…

Freedom of, not from, religion.

How is freedom OF religion also not freedom FROM religion? It doesn't say "freedom of any available Christian denomination" So that would infer, freedom to choose Buddhism or Hindu, or (as Abraham Lincoln said) "when I do good, I feel good" THAT is my religion."
