  • Supreme Court: State actors may not lead school prayer

    David Adler|May 16, 2022

    In 1962, in Engel v. Vitale, the U.S. Supreme Court, in one of the most controversial decisions of the Warren Court era, held school-led prayer unconstitutional for violating the First Amendment’s Establishment Clause. Engel was the first school prayer case heard by the court, but it was not starting from scratch in considering the issue of governmentally sponsored religious practices. The court had previously upheld against the assertion of an Establishment Clause violation a state program that involved busing children to parochial schools. I...

  • Biden's hyperbole is getting ridiculous

    Carl Golden|May 16, 2022

    President Biden and those around him have a fondness for using historical disasters as points of comparisons to raise the level of outrage over outbreaks of violence and unrest that have plagued the nation for much of the last eighteen months. When confronted by images and news accounts of extreme behavior, their first reaction is to reach for superlatives like "worse than...more dangerous than...more horrifying than...more insidious than...a horrible reminder of..." There follow comparisons to...

  • Sermonette: May 16, 2022

    Father Reese Weber|May 16, 2022

    Jesus says that those who are forgiven much will love much but “those who are forgiven little will love little” (cf. Luke 7:47). Does this mean that we have to be forgiven for great and many sins before we can have great love for God? In other words, do those who did not commit many sins love God less than those who have been forgiven for their many sins? One of my favorite saints, Therese of Lisieux, never committed a serious sin in her whole life. She gives clarity to this question by telling two stories. In the first story, a doctor’s child...
