Counterfeiters multiply during the Christmas season – but in Washington DC, it’s Christmas every day!
A story told by Archbishop Chaput causes Chris Manion to ask- has social justice replaced virtue these days?
At the annual meeting of the USCCB in Baltimore last week, bishops signaled that the focus on “Social Justice” that has prevailed for several decades might be changing to a focus on teaching the fundamentals of the faith to the faithful.
In Footnote 7, Chris Manion asks: Can a government based on revenge serve the common good? And is love of country a viable alternative?
In Footnote 6, Christopher Manion looks at the demands of some dissidents who want the government to silence the Catholic Church. Should we let them?
In Footnote 5, Dr. Manion explores why Catholic bishops are taking moral truths seriously these days, and some “comfortable Catholics” find that – uncomfortable!
In this episode of Footnote, Dr. Manion discusses how Pope Benedict pleads with our bishops to teach all the truths of the Faith, even the “hard parts.” Is that just an abstract appeal to teach some theoretical moral maxims? Hardly. Mary Eberstadt explains how the Church’s failure to teach Humanae Vitae contributed to some very practical, and drastic, consequences for the Church.
