The subject of America’s painful past with slavery is in the news again. Good….we need to have this debate.

Dr. Martin Luther King lives on in his legacy. There are many voices speaking for what that means today.

What to make of the rally

The massive rally on the mall of Washington over the weekend has the media in a tangle. It was larger and more peaceful and more positive and less political than they expected, and this is all territory largely foreign to them. How to account for what they’re all calling ‘Glenn Beck’s rally’?

Competing rallies, same essential message

Restore, renew, reclaim. Two rallies take place today in Washington on this anniversary of Dr. Martin Luther King’s ‘I Have a Dream’ speech. One is on the spot where Dr. King delivered that famous oration. The other nearby, but headed to the Mall as well. They’re being reported as being two very different groups of activists in tension, having two competing messages. But they’re not. Or….need not be.

Social justice with love

There’s been plenty of controversy around the issue of ’social justice’ in political news lately, which is only catching up with the longstanding controversy surrounding it in the Church world. Cardinal Francis George honors the controversial Fr. Michael Pfleger with an award....and tries to teach a lesson about justice and love and life.
