It's All About Word Choice

'Bishops' Rally in Support of D & P - writes journalist Michael Swan here. Yet the Saskatchewan Bishops + Bishop Fabbro + Bishop Rivest equals about 10% of Canadian Bishops at most. Perhaps the title should read "Fewer than 10% of Bishops Rally in Support of D & P"? That would be less manipulative and would undermine, I think, the point the author is trying to make. I teach my students to notice stuff like this. The danger of knowledge.

John of Jonah in the Heart of Nineveh records 'Education' Minister's, Glen Murray's, words, "You're not allowed to do that anymore" - i.e., to say that homosexual acts are intrinsically disordered. My question: Why not? Did God change his mind or something? Or does Minister Murray suppose that people derive their right to think and to say things from the Government of Ontario? His choice of words is humorous. What is he, eight years old?

Just a reminder: don't ever let anyone ever tell you what you cannot say. Freedom evaporates when we let it.

"Is that a human being?" asks Julie of Concerned for Life. What's in a name?

Are you used to 'consubstantial' yet in the re-translated Creed at mass? You know, people have suffered and died for that word. It is the finest word of all: homoousion (consubstantial is the Latin equivalent.)
