Pull up a chair in my domestic church and let's chat!

I have worn many labels (Not in any particular order): Catholic, Wife, Mom,Gramma, Doctor, Major, Soccer Mom, Military Wife, Professor, Fellow.

All of these filter my views of the world. I hope that like St. Monica, I can through prayer, words and example, lead my children and others to Faith.

John Edwards Campaign Staffer Alert

Please read this item about the woman John Edwards just hired to supervise his presidential campaign blog. Amanda's Marcotte has a definite bias against religion in general but also has a putrid animosity towards the Catholic Church in particular. Her writings include a piece entitled "FAQ ON THE CATHOLIC CHURCH’S ‘CRAZY’ TEACHINGS ABOUT BIRTH CONTROL". Her comments are too vile for me to put on my blog pages but you can read them at National Review Online As they say, you can tell much about a man by the company he keeps.

(H/T to Gerald for the link)

UPDATE: According to Salon the Edwards campaign has fired blogger Amanda Marcotte. They received a great deal of negative press from bloggers, the Catholic League, and conservative columnists.

(H/T to Argent for the info)

UPDATE II: Tales of Amanda Marcotte's demise have been greatly exaggerated. John Edwards has been assured she meant no offense by her hateful, bigoted, vulgar remarks.

I noticed that the coverage of her dismissal talked about outrage from the "right wing" and the "religious right". If a religious person had similarly derided liberal beliefs it would be "hate speech". Glad they have their terms correct.

Yes, those comments were definitely putrid. The hatred is very sad. Blasphemy of the Holy Spirit is in a category all its own...the kind that requires sunblock lotion SPF ∞. May she come to a conversion of heart and true repentance.
