  • Reaching Men's Minds

    It's often been suggested that the best way to get men to church is to make church more masculine. But, Luke Harrington argues at Christ & Pop Culture, that doesn't have to mean trading in crude stereotypes of masculinity. It could mean something much better: appealing to men's intellect.READ FULL ARTICLE »
  • In Memoriam

  • Downton Demagoguery

    I watched the third episode of the current season of “Downton Abbey” last night. (If you’re not a fan, just stop reading now.)

    I was a little bothered by episode 2 last week, when Lady Mary tells her maid, Anna, that she wants to go away for a few days with a man who wants to marry her. People of her generation, she says, will be living in closer quarters than did previous generations (that is, people who grew up in castles; people who live in cottages have always lived in close quarters). Thus, Mary reasons, it’s more important than ever to marry the right person. And the only way to do that is for couples to spend lots of time together. She won’t get any argument from me there. Where I do argue with her has to do with WHERE she believes couples should spend time getting to know one another: in bed.

  • The Human Cost of Abortion: 'Star Wars' Edition

    As some of you will recall, I'm a great fan of Sir Alec Guinness, both as an actor and a writer. So I was particularly struck by Fr. Dwight Longenecker's touching new piece that focuses on Guinness's birth to an unwed, poverty-stricken young mother -- and reminds us of what could have happened to him, had we then had the same disregard for life in the womb that we have today.

    "If abortion had been easy and legal in England in 1914 the world would never have experienced the witty, smart, subtle art and the quiet, steady witness of Alec Guinness…" Fr. Longencker writes, "…and Star Wars would have had an enormous void."
