The Secular Society - An interesting column by David Brooks of the NY Times

The Secular Society -


  1. Anonymous09 July, 2013

    Brooks talks about pluralism, and it appears the blog author does as well.
    I believe in One God, Three Divine Persons, and the God is the Lord and author of all.
    Don't know if that is allowed here.
    It does not leave itself open to hundreds of interpretations by the proud minds of Thinkers, (or Tinkers).

  2. I haven't read Taylor's book so I can't comment on it but I find Brooks' column interesting. I;m not sure if he's observant or not, but his columns, this and others, indicate less necessarily a belief in God but more of belief in belief. It's like on of the latest Pew Polls that asked people what they thought about the decline of religious adherence (the "nones") and as expected religious people found it a bad thing but also 48% of non religious people found it a bad thing. So ingrained in our society is the idea that belief is a good thing that many, including perhaps David Brooks, view it with trepidation.

    1. What a vacuous response, as usual, from the atheist.
      Just more of maybe yes, maybe no- I do not care.

    2. I will let your reply be my comment.

Sisters of Life

Here is an excellent website for any and all interested in the pro-life cause. The Sisters of Life are a religious order than began in New York City under the authority of Cardinal Jon O'Connor (RIP) in the 1980's. Their traditional religious lifestyle and clear charism have led them to grow much faster than many other orders. As a result, these wonderful women are moving beyond the boundaries of NYC and have opened a convent in Toronto. Here is a link to a news account from LifesiteNews which explains in greater detail their history and mission in Toronto. The Sisters of Life count among their numbers a woman from our Parish here in Mattawa who is soon to take her final profession. This is one of the greatest blessings that we have received as a parish. Anytime a religious vocation comes forward from a parish community, many graces flow back to the local church. I can only pray that as the Sisters of Life establish their ministry in Canada that more and more women will join

The May 2010 Euthanasia Prevention Coalition Newsletter can now be found at: Bill C-384 was soundly defeated by a vote of 228 to 59. Check how the Members of Parliament voted at: On June 5, 2010, we are co-hosting the US/Canda Push-Back Seminar at the Radisson Gateway Hotel at the Seattle/Tacoma Airport. The overwhelming defeat of Bill C-384 proved that we can Push-Back the euthanasia lobby in the US and Canada and convince people that euthanasia and assisted suicide are a dangerous public policy.
