12:01 AM, March 5th, 2014.  New Orleans.  NOPD sweeps the FrenchQuarter, thus reinforcing that Lent has started and it's time to mortify the flesh by going home and enjoying your Ash Wednesday hangover.

Hello from Dallas, Texas. I just joined the group and wanted to say hello. I came back into the Church about four years ago after being away since high school. It's been awesome being back and gaining a deep appreciation for the Truth.

Pax Christi,

Jeremy

Christmas Season is almost over.  The New Year has begun.  Anybody have any resolutions involving the exercise of faith for this year?

Well said, Vytautas.

The Holy Father is very precise Robert. Few people are listening to him. He writes strongly--as did John Paul II--that unrestrained free markets degrade our humanity. This isn't Marxism, as some popular right wingers have claimed; simply truth. JPII wrote, in the throes of the Cold War, that both communism and capitalism are deeply and fatally flawed. But what does the American right remember? They remember his criticism of communism but willfully forget the critique of capitalism.

In the main though Robert you are very right. Catholicism doesn't neatly fit into American political categories. I think this infuriates the right when Catholics, or Catholic thought, does not bend to the will of American conservatism.

Robert.... You nailed it entirely in your first sentence.

"Alot of things decide sentence severity. One of those is previous record. I could be wrong but my understanding of most of the statistics only include severity of the single crime, not previous offenses."
