   I was scanning the inter-webs and came across this article in The Washington Post's Faith section (Yes, I read the faith section quite often): Pope Seeks Protestant Allies to Combat…

"Scared? Fear the Maker" - Outreach Media

There's one thing I can never understand, and it's the perceived dichotomy between the "all-loving God" and the "vengeful God". Apparently God is to be feared, because he is all-powerful and could exact all sorts of damages upon us and our souls if he so chose to. But on the other hand he loves us with a more pure and generous love than anything else can offer. It doesn't sound like a very nice relationship to enter into willingly.



This month, Outreach Media have gone with this… Continue

Catholics Blame the "Sexual Revoution" for Priest Sex Abuse, sigh...

I found this article to be very interesting as it basically blames the social times of the 60s and 70s in America for the prolonged problem of sex abuse to young boys from Priests.

The Holy Dinner - My evening with a priest

(note: this event actually took

place last year but I thought it would be interesting to copy it from my

other blog)



So the big evening finally arrived. I was going to be dining with a local priest.



Father Pat was all that he was said to

be and then some. He was well-read, well-spoken, affable and at times

blasphemous. I know that many of you read my post yesterday and

probably thought that there was going to be some kind of showdown at my… Continue
