Hoge that explores how the sexual scandals have influenced Catholic attitudes toward the faith and the Church.  Read more...

Twelve Steps to Man - Mark Gauvreau Judge

I've been doing research for a book on the role of Christianity in Alcoholics Anonymous. I've come to the conclusion that the primary role of the Catholic Church in AA is as a piñata — indeed, the one acceptable target in an organization that prides itself on acceptance of every conceivable kind of faith.

We Are All Guilty - Theodore Dalyrmple

I was in New York when Lehmann Brothers collapsed and I was in Dubai when property prices fell there by fifty per cent in a week.

Behind the physical attack on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon was an intellectual attack — an assault not just on American foreign policy but also on the principle of freedom.
