From ‘no popery’ to ‘no religion’
A Quaker survey (of only 3,500 people) in Britain shows that common knowledge is the dominant view: ‘we don’t do God’ or religion is the No. 1 social evil, which explains Lenin, Stalin, Mao and Pol Pot (the world’s most carnage was in its most irreligious century). Modern-liberal Americans are ‘spiritual not religious’; Europeans are real secularists.

Benedict XVI on immigration?
You know the restrictionists have gone head-first into the fever swamps when they denounce a Christian religious leader for sounding like a Christian.

The pope welcomes immigrants because he’s Catholic, not because they are. He isn’t “marketing” his faith. He’s practicing it.
An angle on the Episcopal soap opera I hadn’t thought of
Fr Dan Martins notes that by blowing off the Episcopalians left in the old standing committee and setting up a completely new diocese to replace them the Episcopal Church has acknowledged that Bishop Schofield’s diocese has left it

These and worthwhile news stories on the foreclosure fiasco and food shortages (is the worst about to happen?) are at T19.
