A catechetical response to same-sex marriage Using a logical argument, the author explains the Church’s position on a difficult issue
By John Cavadini
Why does the Catholic Church oppose same-sex marriage? This question is a burning one for many Catholics.
The recent outpouring of local support for Mark Zmuda, former vice principal at a Catholic high school in Seattle, is an example of how the emotions involved in addressing this question cross our own hearts.
Zmuda resigned from Eastside Catholic High School in December after failing to honor his contract — which states he must follow the Church’s teachings — by marrying his same-sex partner in July. Since Zmuda’s departure, the school’s students have staged a walk-out, spoken out on social media and collected signatures for a petition to the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops.
As is evident by these actions, the Church’s position seems especially inexplicable to young people. Anyone reading this may him or herself be same-sex attracted, and certainly all of us know and love people who are. Why, then, should there be any difficulty for the Church with same-sex civil marriage? Isn’t this a simple matter of civil rights?

A “social contract” theory of government, as you know, can be used in two different ways, and this difference is extremely important: it can be used to set up an ideal toward which the government should be transformed (essentially the view of John Locke), or it can be used to place a stamp of approval on all, or most, of the actions of the existing government (for example, Rousseau). Thus, the theory of the divine right of kings began as a check on government, as an order to the King to stay within divinely-commanded laws; it was transformed, by the State, into a divine stamp of approval for anything the King might decide to do.

My position on Gun Control. 

Really?

Scenario 1: You are asleep in bed when you are awoken by the sound of breaking glass. You spring to your feet, totally awake with adrenaline. You reach for your phone… the line is dead. You grab your cell phone and dial 9-11. As the phone rings you hear sounds coming from the livingroom, somebody is definitely in your house. You nervously explain to the operator what is going on and she tells you to remain calm, hide and wait for police to arrive. You get into your closet and wait nervously. You hear footsteps down the hall… the intruder is getting closer. You hear your bedroom door open… the footsteps are right beside your closet now. Then the unthinkable happens: your closet door is pulled open and you are exposed to the intruder. He grabs you and throws you onto the bed and proceeds to beat you. The last thing you see before you lose consciousness and die is your attackers face.
Scenario 2: You are a woman home alone with her child. You hear somebody kick in your door. You grab your child and run to your room and close the door. You grab your phone and dial 9-11. The operator tells you to remain calm and hide with your child until police arrive. You tell the operator that you have a gun and you are hiding in the closet. You hear footsteps outside your bedroom door and you call out to the intruder: “GET OUT OF MY HOUSE, I HAVE A GUN AND WILL SHOOT YOU!” The intruder kicks in your bedroom door and quickly rips open the closet door…. you level your pistol at the intruders mid-section and fire four shots. The intruder immediately turns and runs out of the house where he makes it about one block before collapsing and dying.
You tell me: Which scenario has the better outcome? Who is the coward? Who was left alive and who died? 
Before anyone says anything, both of these scenarios are true life events that happened and recounted to the best of my memory. There are bad people out there and you have to defend yourself… sometimes with a gun.

Most of us aren’t Batman and don’t have bullet proof costumes or fictional strength, speed, reflexes, or billions of $$$ for cool gadgets or Alfred the butler to treat our injuries.


In the earlier years of batman killed people without remorse.

Jacque Fresco, from Zeitgeist: Moving Forward.

"Fresco is the director of The Venus Project.[1] Fresco advocates global implementation of a socioeconomic system which he refers to as a “resource-based economy.”

The fourth gif of the set explains that he has a 0% understanding of savings, interest, and investment. Of course the rest was going to be utter crap.

What is with this obsession over the “thigh gap”?

It’s basically a rehash of the “bomber gap” and the “missile gap” from the 50’s and 60’s.  It’s becoming a greater and greater concern that other countries’ women have more and better thighs than ours, and we have to close the gap with PSA’s about fitness and such. 

How did California "balance" its budget?

Basically, by lying.

Scott Shackford explains how California hasn’t “recovered”:

I have been pushing back on claims that California’s economy is fine and awesome and should be used as a model for other states’ recoveries. California is doing better these days than five years…
