    ALL of our institutions have been hollowed out by the greed ethos. There are none left with heart intact or souls for that matter. So the zombie is all around us - me

      Linky, please! Are Catholics, the people -- I know the bishops won't, willing to consider abortion acceptable?

        Catholic survey

          just about anything. But my guess would be because it's they don't jibe with the anti-gay, anti-woman positions the US bishops want to pursue. Thanks for the link!
