Ruth Bader Ginsburg knocks Clarence Thomas in dissent: A woman seeking abortion is not a ‘mother’ – Washington Times

He got under her skin with that one, breaking the rule (?) that says no by-the-way take-for-granted opinions in your opinion, which seems to me would be unduly restrictive.

Anyhow, she might have overlooked it. Not commented on it, that is, especially in this pure gummint-knows-best vein, as opposed to ages of solid truth in packaging.

Infuriating, when you get down to it, horrifying insight into a statist mentality.

A veteran religious sister reviews her conundrum: the law or love is the question

A Catholic prep school will carry announcements of alumnae “same-sex unions” in its alumnae magazine. Four alumnae object, quoting the community’s mother superior explaining her decision.

As a professed Sister of the Visitation for 67 years, I have devoted my life in service to the Catholic Church. The Church is clear in its teaching on same-sex marriages. But, it is equally clear in its teaching that we are all children of God, that we each have dignity and are worthy of respect and love. I have been blessed to live my vocation here at Visitation, where I have welcomed and come to know, respect, and love thousands of unique, intelligent, passionate, and faithful women, each made in the image and likeness of God.

As I have prayed over this contradiction, I keep returning to this choice: we can focus on Church teaching on gay marriage or we can focus on Church teaching on the Gospel commandment of love. We know from history – including very recent history – that the Church, in its humanity, makes mistakes. Yet, through the grace of God and the power of the Holy Spirit, it learns and grows. And so, we choose the Gospel commandment of love.

She is so sloppy in her thinking.

How to move on within the Novus Ordo [post-Vatican 2

An admirable priest called Fr Harrison has recently asked orthodox Catholics [Romans wanting the best for themselves and the world] to revisit the Novus Ordo.

I offer some thoughts about what those who share Father’s instincts might do so as to go just a little way to meet Traddy [tradition-leaning] worshipers.

Some ‘stages’.

(1) Use only the First Eucharistic Prayer. Always. Even with the kiddies. Do this as your first matter of first principle. Even if you’re trinating [celebrating, saying mass three times in a day]. The provision of alternatives [take your pick of canons, central
part of the mass] was the main error of … NOT Vatican II, where no such move was even hinted at, but of the corrupt use of their influence by those who subsequently…
