Around the blogs today

By Domenico Bettinelli, Jr. (articles ) | Aug 04, 2003

Here's what's new and interesting on Catholic blogs today:

  • John Mallon at Mallon's Media Watch blog is back up and running after some hassles with Blogger/Google. You should make him one of your daily blog stops.
  • Mark Shea discusses blogger Andrew Sullivan's temper tantrums over the Church's assertion of the timeless teaching on homosexuality, and especially Sullivan's claim that the Church no longer has a right to speak on any moral issue.
  • Peter Vere of Catholic Light (not "Lite") writes of the fallout of Canada's legalization of same-sex marriage and asks whether religious persecution is in the offing.
  • Tom Fitzpatrick gives a line-by-line dissection to Sen. John Kerry's published outrage over the Vatican's document on gay marriage.
  • Jeff Miller finds a curious commonality in headlines about the Vatican document.
  • Leon Podles of Touchstone Magazine's blog notes that Canada's new definition of marriage says it is the union of two persons and asks why not more?
  • Amy Welborn has a slightly different take on Andrew Sullivan's tantrum and stated turmoil over whether to remain a Catholic.
  • David Ancell explains why we shouldn't celebrate the breakdown of the family.
  • "Athanasius" notices that the Chicago Sun-Times has abandoned all objectivity when dealing with the Catholic Church.
