A Catholic priest has been granted a leave of absence from St. Aloysius church in Springfield, Illinois, after he called 911 from the rectory and complained to the dispatcher that he needed help getting out of handcuffs. Complicating matters, Father Tom Donovan also had ‘some sort of gag on’ when police found him alone in the church.
Everyone wanted perfection, but come on: the last guy who was perfect they nailed to a cross. And he wasn’t even an official.
Well, you could become a Muslim and you could beat her … This man’s got to stand up to her and he can’t let her get away with this stuff. I don’t think we condone wife-beating these days but something has got to be done.

Even accounting for infants and other Christians not on Facebook, something weird is happening. Is Facebook losing its religion? See for yourself.

The coverage of any candidate’s religious preference is “exotic” coverage by default. Ask any atheists, who will undoubtedly say that religion in itself is an “exotic” and self-indulgent practice. And unless the U.S. constitution was amended last week adding a particular religious belief as a criterion to hold office, or even campaign for one, the point is moot, without intellectual merit and should therefore be dismissed out-of-hand. To give any credence to the idea that someone’s personal spiritual belief is somehow relevant to her/his candidacy or ability to govern abdicates a journalist’s true responsibility to cover and report on the kind of governor or legislator a candidate would actually be.
