Jean-Paul Sartre: ‘Bathroom Bill’ Philosopher Extraordinaire

Anyone who has studied a smattering of modern philosophy in college has probably heard the misanthropic utterance of Jean-Paul Sartre (1905-1980) from No Exit, “Hell is other people” (L’enfer, c’est les autres).

Early Church Father’s Fight Against Gnosticism

Catholic Exchange, Brian Kranick: How common is it to hear someone say, “I’m spiritual, not religious.”  A very Gnostic-esque statement.  One need only to glance at your local bookstore’s religion shelves to see that Gnosticism, that ancient heresy and foe of Christianity, is alive and well in the modern world.  There you would find a smorgasbord of spirituality, with topics on “New Age,” transcendentalism, astrology, reincarnation, … More →

I don’t know about you, but old enough as I am to remember how the killing of more than 200,000 Japanese civilians in the nuclear obliteration of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, especially the technological feat of accomplishing it with a single bomb per targeted city, was positively celebrated by Americans (Just think! We killed all those Japs with one bomb!), and considering the indifference of most … More →

Catholic News Service: Though it “is and remains an unfathomable divine mystery,” Jews can participate in salvation without confessing Christ explicitly, a Vatican committee said in a document released on Thursday.

Here we have the latest frontier: “The Theology of Luv.” With particular references to the Second Vatican Council, Marx claimed that a “new path” was found regarding sexual ethics.
