Today's second collection will benefit Catholic communications.

Where can you find a link to a celebration of Margaret Sanger and Planned Parenthood? Why, at the Diocese of Saginaw website, of course! (March is Women's History Month.)

Update: link removed. Thanks, folks!

    I am disappointed there are no Wiccan links; perhaps in due time.

    Did anyone look at the Theological Library? It is supposed to be for anyone "interested in ongoing formation." It lists among it's authors such as - Joan Chittister; Charles E. Curran; Sandra Schneiders; Elisabeth Schussler-Fiorenza; Karl Rahner; Richard Rohr; Rosemary Radford Ruether; Anthony T. Padovano; Richard Mc Brien; Megan McKenna; Fran Ferder ..... I do not guarantee that I found all the disenters. It does not surprise me that there are other questionable links!

    frjimc: Throwing additional light on the subject -- to eradicate the darkness on that website rather than simply curse it -- is precisely what I was doing. It was for your benefit as well as for prompt Patty's. I reasoned (unfortunately, incorrectly) that you would want to finish what you had started. Sorry, my mistake. But thanks for reminding me to be polite. Whatever gave you the idea I'd be anything but? PJRS

    Better yet, PJRS, why don't you ask her -- politely, of course. It's always better to light a candle than curse the darkness.

    The usually reliable Diogenes and "Fr Jim" missed at least one other noteworthy link at the Saginaw site. Go there. Click "Distinguished Women of Past and Present." Then click on "Links to Related Sites." Then check out "The Isle of Lesbos." Will someone also tell prompt Patty about that one? And remind her that real service requires due diligence before the fact as well as after. You might even ask her to review all of her links, which is something (obviously) that none of us has done. PJRS.

    OOOOOPS!

    The webmaster was very nice and prompt in removing the link when notified of its inappropriateness. Here's her response: "Dear Fr Jim, Thank you for bringing that link to my attention. It has been removed from the website. The Diocese of Saginaw maintains a servant website and we are always interested in comments, suggestions and criticisms. I am very appreciative of your help - Blessings and please pray for us too. Patty, Webmaster Diocese of Saginaw" Ask first, post later!
