Several Interesting Articles

Joseph Bottum in today's On the Square characterizes Robert P. George's Law and Moral Purpose in the current First Things as a tour de force. This is an understatement. Take my advise, read, learn and inwardly digest (as the Anglican's used to say).

Over at MercatorNet, Thomas Lickona writes on Character-based Sex Education in a very thought provoking article. And while you're visiting MercatorNet, you might also want to read Carolyn Moynihan's Focus on sex education: eyes on Manila from back in November.

And finally, Sandro Magister, over at Chisea, writes on the School of Bologna's attempt to co opt Pope Benedict's indictment of the hermeneutics of discontinuity as actually supporting their views on the Second Vatican Council. Fascinating...

(No doubt, I will post a few statements about this in the near future.)
