Since Congress is considering repealing Don’t Ask Don’t Tell this week – possibly by Thursday – I thought this was a good subject for today’s TOB Tuesday post. In a column for Catholic Exchange’s Theology of the Body Channel, Robert Colquhoun explains the Church’s teaching on homosexuality while respecting the sensitivities of those afflicted with same sex attraction: There has … Read More

Wow, I totally missed this one! In two previous TOB Tuesday posts last year (!!) I pointed out a 3 part series of columns by Dale O’Leary at Catholic Exchange answering the challenge posed to traditional sexual morality by the “Sexual Revolutionaries” of the last thirty years.

Everyday my local newspaper quotes a Scripture passage on the top corner of the “Opinion” page.

On the radio yesterday I heard two commercials, back to back, for Planned Parenthood promoting “sexual health” by advertising their contraceptive services and the morning after pill. Health? Really? Ladies, a normally functioning reproductive cycle is not a health problem. If you have sex and get pregnant, it doesn’t mean that something went wrong; it means that something went beautifully … Read More
