Who is responsible for the development of children? You might say parents. You would be wrong, according to the left. Of course, they usually don’t come right out and say it. Every now and then they mess up and say exactly what they believe.
Parents can not be trusted to teach their children correctly. Left to parents alone, kids are at risk of learning hate-filled Christian values of morality. It takes a village to do the job – a collective (a very socialist word) notion that these are “our children.” So how can “our children” be properly
indoctrinated / brainwashed invested in? By the community, and by “community” (to which they properly belong) they mean leftist government.

May God bless sidewalk abortion counselors. Every one of them.
Catholic Answers is publishing a new book by Robert Spencer entitled Not Peace, But A Sword: The Great Chasm Between Christianity And Islam. This book endeavors to take a fair look at Islam from a faithful Catholic point of view.

A historical Quote of the Week:
Today, having a clear faith based on the Creed of the Church is often labeled as fundamentalism. Whereas relativism, that is, letting oneself be tossed here and there, carried about by every wind of doctrine [Ephesians 4:14], seems the only attitude that can cope with modern times. We are building a dictatorship of relativism that does not recognize anything as definitive and whose ultimate goal consists solely of one’s ego and desires.Cardinal Ratzinger
(before he became Pope Benedict XVI)
Some random thoughts or bits of information are worthy of sharing but don’t warrant their own full post. This idea was started by Jennifer Fulwiler to address this blogging need, but is guest hosted this week by Grace at Camp Patton. So, some Fridays I too participate when I have accumulated 7 worthy items. Thank you Jen (and Grace) for hosting this project!
