From blog correspondent Lee Penn
Youth in Rome lose the faith - story from Italian paper L'Espresso
'...evidence that the Christian faith is threatening to go extinct in Catholicism's capital par excellence, the Rome of the popes. The new generations are the indication of this trend - more so among youths aged 16 to 18 than among those in the 24 to 26 age bracket, the two age groups examined in the survey. The vestiges of Christianity are resisting only within the restricted circle of those who are most faithful. But in society as a whole, the desert is advancing. "One is no longer born a Christian, one becomes one"...'

But...
Civiltà Cattolica strongly condemns US war on Iraq

NewsMax: Russian/Chinese alliance grows; Russian nuclear attack exercises on US
Lee Penn: We may have more problems on our hands than Bush thinks ... especially if he attacks Iran or war starts in Korea.
