Dr John James

I know this may seem a little Machiavellian, but there is an inevitable confrontation looming between Church and State, and I'm looking forward to it.
In one state here in Australia, the government has passed legislation compelling Catholic hospitals and doctors to provide at least material co-operation, and quite possibly formal co-operation, in the killing of the unborn.
Why am I looking forward to it? I guess because it will, to borrow a biblical metaphor, sift the grain from the chaff, and will stengthen the Church. She will become 'leaven' even more.
The laity will be compelled to up a position. There will be no way you can do a 'Cuomo' and fence sit! "I'm personally opposed, but..."
So lets rumble!


Dovid Katz of the Guardian reports on actions that threaten to further the seemingly inexorable steamrolling of historical memory in the Baltic states:

I know that this isn't strictly relevant, but I really wanted to show this and sound the alarm. I honestly don't know how else I can raise the alarm. If there is a more appropriate place to post that link, I'd like to be pointed in that direction.
