Around the blogs today
By Domenico Bettinelli, Jr. (articles ) | Dec 11, 2003
Here's what's new and interesting on Catholic blogs today:
- Fr. Rob Johansen stays on the Terri Schiavo case, telling us that the Florida courts don't seem to care about the rules of evidence or of proper judicial behavior. He also notes a statement from Terri's family's lawyer on the questionable poll of whether people support the particular kind of euthanasia her husband is trying to impose on Terri.
- Tackling a question I raised on my own blog, several other bloggers ask whether Christians, who are to love everyone, should love Satan. Disputations says No, not in the sense that demons are fit objects of charity. Mark Shea thinks it's just too dangerous a topic to deal with and we would better spend our time on loving those worth loving. That would probably have been the better advice from the priest who originally answered the question on the Life Teen web site.
- Father Tom Dowd recommends the regular devotion of fasting and gives a resource for more information.
- Dale Price is once again proved the master of the "fisking", a blogging term that describes the process of taking apart someone else's writing point by point. This time it's the National Catholic Reporter's Tom Roberts' latest editorial that says that we shouldn't look to the Bible to determine whether homosexuality is ok.
