Are the German Bishops Selling Porn?

Interesting commentary from Jimmy Akin of National Catholic Register on the story that the German Catholic Bishops own a publishing house which publishes pornography.

What happened to black vestments?

Interesting post from The New Liturgical Movement about the appropriateness of black vestments.

Why I am No Longer a Tea Totaling Baptist!

Another reason to be happy to be Catholic:  Beer!

Pope Beer

Here is the official Beer Blessing:

V: Our help is in the name of the Lord.

R: Who made heaven and earth.

V: The Lord be with you.

R:  And with thy spirit.

Let us pray.

Bless, O Lord, this creature beer, which thou hast deigned to produce from the fat of grain: that it may be a salutary remedy to the human race, and grant through the invocation of thy holy name that, whoever shall drink it, may gain health in body and peace in soul.  Through Christ our Lord.

R: Amen.

The beer is then sprinkled with holy water.

Beer Blessing

Thanks to the Bad Catholic Blog (great name don't you think?) who I shamelessly stole this post from.

Gay Brownshirts on the March!

Enjoy the fireworks care of Mark Shea at Catholic and Enjoying It!

The Persecution of Catholics Continues

Faithful Catholics are no longer qualified to be nurses in public hospitals in New Jersey.  Twelve New Jersey nurses have been threatened with being fired if they refused to assist in performing abortions.  The Alliance Defense Fund has filed suit on behalf of the nurses.  The hospital first scheduled a meeting with the nurses but cancelled it when they arrived with an attorney.  Full story from National Catholic Register.

So this is where we have now arrived in the demon inspired Culture of Death.  Either kill babies or loose your job and maybe even your professional credentials.  We are fast approaching a time when anyone dissenting from the culture (i.e. opposed to abortion, gay marriage, etc.) will be deemed unqualified to hold a professional license of any type.  How long will it be before the signs go up saying "Catholics need not apply" ?
