Civil War and the Future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe

by

Superhero movie fatigue is a strange phenomenon for older millennials. I grew up in a time when live action superhero films were rare and mostly subpar. The 1970’s Hulk was a bodybuilder in green paint. The 1980’s Punisher was played by Dolph Lundren, minus the iconic skull symbol. The 1990’s Captain America had rubber ears.   […]

Obama’s Foreign Policy Legacy: Chaos and LGBT

by

As President Obama nears the end of his term his foreign policy remains indecipherable even to experts. His reticence in foreign affairs – even in cases of genocide – is legendary, except for one matter. A coordinated game plan on one key issue emerges through officials’ speeches, obscure overseas funding, even “buttonholing” diplomats in UN […]

Bored With the Culture Wars?

by

If you’re bored with the culture wars, you are not alone. I often feel like Bill Murray’s character in Goundhog Day. Instead of having I Got You Babe seared into my brain on a daily basis, I wake up every morning to news of another skirmish in the culture wars. I read on Facebook that […]

America’s Act of Contrition

by

The use and the abuse of apology as a political weapon, gambit, or statement has a long and varied history. It often includes a demand for a statement of sorrow and of responsibility, an “act of contrition.” Not a week goes by that some persons, group, institution, political party, or political leader requests (demands) an […]

Democrat presidential candidate Bernie Sanders thinks he can wave a magic government wand, impose lots of new taxes and government programs and make the world grand. Reality has another notion. Take the minimum wage. Bernie says he’ll raise it to $15 an hour, more than doubling it. If I worked at a fast-food restaurant for […]

During 2014 an additional 88 schools closed or consolidated, while only 27 new schools opened. About 2 million students attend Catholic schools, of which 328,000 plus are non-Catholic. This is […]

Does God Hear the Theological Silence About Racism in Abortion?

by

For some time now, a group of theologians has opined about “Theological Silence About White Racism.” In words of accusation that could not be stronger or more vigorous, this sin is condemned as injustice, institutional violence, group dehumanization, troubling social evil, social subjugation, race-based wrongdoing, social sin, habitus of white superiority, tragedy, social inequity, unjust […]
