Intentions of the Holy Father for April

Ecology and Justice. That governments may foster the protection of creation and the just distribution of natural resources.
Hope for the Sick. That the Risen Lord may fill with hope the hearts of those who are being tested by pain and sickness.

Land of the Free? Home of the Brave?

A rap song I like sings, "THIS is the land of the free?  THIS is the home of the brave?"

The only defense of human dignity - from being treating like cattle, for instance - is recognition that human persons are made inviolable by a Creator who demands justice for His creatures.  Materialist theories of man's origins cannot yield any reason to treat people as anything more than mere matter, usually as material for someone else's schemes.

I am not here denying evolution or other scientific theories.  I only deny that they explain everything.

Of course, all this said, it is not beyond Fox News to just blow it, or to blow something out of proportion either.  Anyone know any more about this?  I first heard about it about a month ago, but haven't gotten around to blogging about it.
