From Catholic World News:

Pro-abortion Catholic to head Dept. of Health and Human Services
President-elect Barack Obama yesterday selected former Senate Majority Leader Tom Daschle of South Dakota to become the next Secretary of Health and Human Services. The former senator is a Catholic who is divorced and remarried outside the Church, and a supporter of legalized abortion. Saginaw (Michigan) Bishop Robert Carlson, then head of the South Dakota Diocese of Sioux Falls, asked Sen. Daschle in 2003 to stop referring to himself in congressional publications as a Catholic in good standing. Speaking in the Senate, the senator denounced the bishop as ‘more identified with the radical right than with thoughtful religious leadership.’

Jay Leno joked:

Obama spent his first day as president-elect by assembling his transition team…
And if you believe MSNBC, by tomorrow, he will have chosen all twelve of his disciples.

Pope Says Luther was Right — with a Caveat

by Steve Ray on November 20, 2008

Pope Benedict has been using his Wednesday audiences to give briliant talks on St. Paul. This week his topic was “On St. Paul and Justification.” In the talk he comments on Luther and says he was correct in his idea of faith alone if it is understood properly. He gives a balanced and precise explanation. The Pope has such a gift of cutting through the tangles to get to the heart of the matter.

He hits the nail right on the head! To read his catechesis this week, click here.
