Reading the Bible Like a Grown-Up - Mark Shea

As we saw last week, antique atheists like Bill Maher still imagine that people who take the Bible seriously must read it literalistically, as he does.   Read more...

Reading the Scandal With Biblical Eyes - Father Robert Barron

Once again we’re living in scandal times.   Read more...

Reason to believe - Paul Johnson

My belief in God is not philosophical. It is not rooted in metaphysics or reason. It springs from the heart and the senses. It is practical.  Read more...

Rebutting the 'Catholic but…' - Bishop Thomas J. Olmsted

Now is the time to rebut the “Catholic but…” It is the time to say “Yes” when we mean “Yes,” and to say “No” when we mean “No.”  Read more...

Recognizing the True Church - Father John A. Hardon, S.J.

There are two basic positions in the medley of world religions outside the Catholic Church.   Read more...

Reform in the Church and in Society - Fr. Benedict Groeschel, C.F.R.

The Church, made up as she is of people, is constantly in need of renewal and reform. Any living thing — be it a plant, a human body or a social organism — needs constantly to be renewed, or it will become moribund. Spiritual renewal, when it occurs in human life and is done under the impulse of the Holy Spirit, often is also a reform, that is, a return to basic principles, a refocusing on basic goals.  Read more...

Reform Party - John Wilson

N.T. Wright is arguably the most influential living Protestant theologian. He's also a scholar sending shock waves through Evangelical circles as he advances the view that the leaders of the Protestant Reformation — Martin Luther especially — misread St. Paul on the subject of justification by faith.  Read more...

Religion has a role to play in the public square - Margaret Somerville

It is a secularist truism: Religion and religious voices and views have no valid role to play in the public square. Indeed, many secularists are openly hostile to any such participation. But are they correct?  Read more...

Religion: A Source of Division? - Doug McManaman

I was taken aback recently when an old friend of mine argued the position that religion is a major divisive force in the world. In light of recent events, he argues that religion is virtually the only thing that is dividing people in Kashmir and the Middle East, just as it was religion that divided Ireland, not to mention Iran and Iraq.  Read more...

Religious Freedom and the Triumph of the Therapeutic - Thaddeus J. Kozinski

I think the Bishops should try to win this battle using any moral means necessary; and perhaps using the purely practical strategy of appealing to liberalism's own principles might work — this time. But I fear that playing the religious-freedom card alone won't work again.   Read more...

Religious Liberty, Blood Transfusions, Cigarettes and Contraception - Janet E. Smith

Brian Hampel, in his March 5 article in the Kansas State Collegian, "Contraception Should Not Be Treated as Issue of Religious Liberty," asks: "If we can require Jehovah's Witnesses to cover blood transfusions, why couldn’t we require Catholics to cover birth control?"  Read more...

Remembering the Early Church - George Sim Johnston

Lately, I have been hearing a lot about how the primitive Church was not Roman Catholic.  Read more...

Rescuing Tolerance - A. J. Conyers

The notion of tolerance encompasses two quite different ideas. On the one hand it can be understood as an Enlightenment concept hostile to theology. On the other hand it is an attitude with deep roots in the Christian tradition.  Read more...

Rowing Upstream - Michael Novak

At Harvard a fellow graduate student commented that in discussing a recent university wide survey that went around, those of his contacts who were religious and actually went to church fairly regularly said that they were made to feel that being religious at Harvard, and especially being Catholic, was like having green hair.  Read more...

Saintly 'Science' - Charles Lewis

When doctors, doubters and, in some cases, atheists are called upon by the Vatican to prove miracles.  Read more...

Saints: Holy Siblings - Scott Hahn

Same-sex attractions: Part II - The Church’s pastoral response - Father Paul Scalia

Many myths surround the issue of homosexuality. Some of them arise from ignorance, some from misguided compassion, and some from the misinformation and propaganda of the radical homosexual community.  Read more...

Same-sex attractions: Part III - The Courage apostolate - Father Paul Scalia

For the past two weeks this column has set forth the Church’s teaching (which is simply the natural law) on homosexuality. We must know the doctrine and first principles in order to address this issue accurately, always keeping in mind that doctrinal and moral truth is necessary for love.   Read more...
