Affirming Children's Rights To Their Mothers And Fathers

Our colleague over at RESTORE DC CATHOLICISM posted an interesting talk taking place at Our Lady of Lourdes in Bethesda, MD. 

The talk, entitled "Affirming Children's Rights to Their Mothers and Fathers" deals with true marriage (a term which I have used, instead of traditional marriage for a while) and that all children need a mother and a father.

Stupid Biden Quote of the Week.

Looks like the highest elected catholyic official in the US, has once again put foot in mouth with his comment about anyone wearing Orange is not welcome, as well as, a couple of other items.

Geez, who elected this guy?  I know I did not.

Lesbianism is a Religion?

Normally, I do not comment on other faiths.  That is not what this blog is about.  However, something caught my attention in The Washington Post Magazine, this week.

Each week, the comPost Magazine has a one pager entitled: Just Asking.  For those of you who do not know it, it is a question and answer with someone they believe is notable.  The first paragraph is a short intro on the person and then it goes into the Q & A.  (That is "Questions and Answers" for those of you in the People's Republic of Takoma Park.)

In this case, the first sentence reads:  "(Name) is a lesbian minister.."

Now, normally, you would say "(Name) is a Baptist,"  "(Name) is a Unitarian," or "(Name) is interdenominational."   You do not say "(Name) is straight" or "(Name) is LBQTUVWXYZ."

Really, once again, the comPost is pushing a radical agenda and trying to normalize something that is not.

Dog Tag Bakery

I will have to check this out when I get down there...




Readjusting to the American workforce after active military service - particularly when dealing with injuries - can be notoriously challenging, which is why two enterprising philanthropists have put their heads together to form an unlikely solution.

Dog Tag Bakery - which trains and employs wounded veterans, not just in baking but in actually running the business - was launched last year in Georgetown, Washington D.C., by Father Richard Curry, a professor of Catholic Studies at Georgetown University, and entrepreneur Connie Milstein.

It's a two-floor operation; upstairs a study center where ex-members of the U.S. ex-military (and their spouses or caregivers) are taught classes in business, finance and marketing, and downstairs a storefront bakery, where these skills are put into practice running the operation for local customers.
