Around the blogs today

By Domenico Bettinelli, Jr. (articles ) | Aug 08, 2003

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

  • Mark Shea, in the context of discussing Mel Gibson's "The Passion," debunks those who would use the Gospels to either call Jews Christkillers or to completely absolve the Jews of any culpability (or any of us for that matter), using the Catechism as his guide.
  • RC at Catholic Light notes that the whole gay Episcopal bishop affair is making some previously "tolerant" people re-think that tolerance.
  • At the Touchstone blog, we see a contrast between the way that Gene Robinson accepted the "prize" of his Episcopalian bishopric and the way that saints throughout history accepted theirs.
  • Patrick Sweeney notes Rep. Patrick Kennedy's claim that the Church's opposition to same-sex marriage is "bigotry or discrimination."
  • Earl says Catholics in power have chosen to emulate the "sellout john Kennedy" more often than the martyr Thomas More.
  • David Morrison comments on a story about gay activists attacking the annual meeting of Courage being held in Minneapolis and disrupting their Mass.
