Firefighters were racing to tame an enormous blaze in southeastern Australia with officials warning it could merge with others to create a “mega-fire” if weather conditions worsen. Crews have been battling fires that flared in high winds and searing heat across the state of New South Wales last week with more than 200 homes so far destroyed and many others damaged. MORE
Conservative Catholic dissidents, who have been attacking Pope Francis, showed their true colors recently by attacking retired Pope Benedict XVI, calling his writings “subversive” and “modernist.” That’s right, they think Benedict is a heretic. MORE
Dear Reader: Natural disasters are always a wake-up call for mankind .
A television station asked to interview me this week about my thoughts about the end of the world—in as much as there were the two hurricanes back to back with also the other natural disasters and a supposed prediction of an asteroid headed toward earth that is supposed to destroy the earth this month.

That statue is located in downtown Los Angeles’ Grand Park, in front of an entrance to the Stanley Mosk Courthouse off Hill Street. A white cover was placed over the sculpture of Christopher Columbus and the block it stands on, and a chain-link fence erected around it. MORE
Cannot find a Catholic answer to the problem. This one is very professional.
This misconception is easily traced to the writings of two late nineteenth-century skeptics, John William Draper and Andrew Dickson White, who invented the conflict thesis. The conflict thesis holds that religion in general, and Christianity in particular, held back progress. MORE
Not to make a long story longer. After I got out of the Army, 1957, my folks had moved to L. A. So I went to L. A. to start my life again.
