    I began reading the “prosperity gospel” article and was stopped again because I don’t subscribe. That is a real irritant. Please don’t link up with sites like that. Thanks.

    I don’t think anybody was or is expecting Catholicism’s first Gay-Marriage Pope, to start insisting on the historicity and accuracy of Genesis creation claims.

    Not a chance, baby. Not a chance.

    Hi Kathleen: I understand why you were irritated, and it is usually my policy not to link up with sites that don’t allow everyone free access to the article. I made an exception in this case because the site offered not just a paragraph of the article but a decent chunk of the piece — what seems likes a full page — before it cuts non-subscribers off. That may have been a bad call on my part, but the gist of article is available to all, and, on balance, I thought it worthwhile to put it out there. Just my thinking, and thanks for writing. Lauren

    What is new about a Pope accepting the validity of evolutionary science. Evolution is taught in Catholic schools. Scopes of the famous Scopes trail on evolution was a practicing Catholic. Of course any Catholic opinion related to the Bible will be rejected by Bible literal Christians. But please do to paint a positive statement of support on evolution to be news.

  • John McGrath

    Evolution has long been accepted by Catholics. This has nothing to do with the gay issue, or your bias on that issue.

  • John McGrath

    Catholics do not take Genesis I, II to be a lesson in science or history. Nothing new about that.

    How is property not a blessing? Like healing. Prosperity heals the wrong of poverty. Whether this accomplished through prayer or making big donations to a rich minister is another matter.

    ISIS bans the teaching of evolution, yes, and many publicly funded secondary schools and colleges censor teachers and professors who try to offer scientific critiques of neo-Darwinian theory.
