    • Chapter 4: Expectations of the Church September 2, 2015
      Many Catholics say the church should change its stance on key issues. In particular, they would like to see it expand eligibility for the priesthood, relax restrictions on the reception of Holy Communion and drop its ban on artificial birth control for family-planning purposes. There is less consensus on whether these changes will happen within […]

A similar share of U. […]

      About four-in-ten U.S. Catholics say they attend Mass weekly. Few cultural Catholics (4%) say the same, but nearly half report attending Mass at least occasionally.

  1. […] Fevereiro, 2008 por Miguel as seen here and here on […]

  2. That procedure is horrific. Just another example of a universal moral truth: Mutilating the genitals of girls is wrong.

    The last time I was in Kenya I was encouraged to see a poster encouraging people to stop the practice. The more information gets out in the open the more quickly it will be reduced and hopefully stopped.

  3. This has nothing to do with Islam, so it’s not clear why you categorized it as such. While this is practiced in some Muslim cultures, it is also practiced by Animists as well. It is a cultural practice and not a religious one, and yes, it should absolutely be abolished, but continuing to classify it as an Islamic practice is completely incorrect.

  4. Saeed is right – it is definitely not just an Islamic practice.

  5. Thats right. Thats why I removed the Islam category. That was a mistake on my part. Just happens however that a lot of them are Muslims….

  6. I had no idea that anything like this even exsist! Why would parents chose to torture there children so? This has to be something that was decided apon by a woman hating leader. The women in these cultures must be forced to do this. The things humans can come up with to control and punish there own species is mind boggeling. You will never here of or see animals doing things like this to one another.

  7. that’s because, as far as we can tell, animals don’t live under the cloud of willful delusion.
