The first episode of the season is online. Among the topics: what Congressmen are doing to fight/repeal Obamacare.
The Curt Jester notes that higher-ups in the Obama administration seem to follow a strange creed when it comes to very young humans. They also write off those of us with moral concerns as silly. They also seem to not have a firm grasp on science. Read The Curt Jester’s post Creedal Obamians (Sept. 17, 2009) for the story, and his take on it.
Barb at SFO Mom has info on a new book that looks at (among other things) how Notre Dame came to abandon Christian principles, and what might be learned from its recent scandals, and what might be done to restore this ‘Catholic’ university in the wake of its decision to defy Catholic teaching by honoring the most pro-abortion President in history with an honorary degree.
What Happened to Notre Dame? was written by Charles E. Rice, prof. emer. of Law at the Notre Dame Law School. The introduction is by Alfred J. Freddoso, prof. of philosophy at Notre Dame.
So, ladies. Are there other nonfiction books pro-lifers should know about?
Added: From the comments, Barb recommends A Civilization of Love by Carl Anderson (supreme knight of the Knights of Columbus).
I haven’t watched it yet, but The Catholic University of America has video of a discussion titled “The Obama Administration and the Sanctity of Human Life: Is There a Common Ground on Life Issues? What is the Right Response by ‘Pro-Life’ Citizens?” held at Washington, D.C.’s National Press Club on May 28, 2009. It looks like it’s about an hour and twenty minutes long.
David L. Schindler, in asking questions about Notre Dame’s present of an honorary degree to President Obama, puts some of the controversy into moral and historical perspective.
Schindler is an editor at Communio: International Catholic Review, and is a faculty member at John Paul II Institute for Studies on Marriage and Family.
