DURING THIS FORTNIGHT OF PRAYER FOR RELIGIOUS FREEDOM AND ON THE MEMORIAL OF THE MARTYRS JOHN FISHER AND THOMAS MORE, WE ARE CATHOLICS!

What? No comment on the conviction of Msgr. William Lynn. Usually your pithy comments are so timely and fresh. Canon law doesn't trump civil law unless it's all kept a big secret. Congrats good people of Philadelphia! Now let's have Cardinal Law come home from his cushy job in Rome to face the music. We can have Gregorian chant that you like so much.

Well, I do have a full time job and I will post my thoughts on this whole tragic situation in which you seem to take a great deal of vindictive pleasure. Good for you. But I do in fact believe in God's judgment and that it can and is meted out by the state, who in fact have borrowed from the Church a punitive approach to crime just as the Church does to sin. And yes, I do believe that this whole sex abuse scandal and debacle is a foretaste of the final judgment when all sins and crimes will be laid bare and each will go to his recompense in terms of what he did in the body good or evil.The question is, in terms of your vindictiveness, do you believe in the sin, heaven, purgatory and hell?

My uncle's bishop has said, during this fortnight, that he cannot make up his mind whether to vote for Obama or Romney. I am scandalized.

I don't like Romney (and when I was in high school in Michigan, didn't much like his dad) but O has to go.
