Do You Know the Mind of Christ on Immigration?

Kresta Commentary

May 14, 2010

By Al Kresta

Christians are disciples of Christ. The word “disciple” means literally, “learner” i.e., a follower, pupil, or adherent of a teacher or religious leader. Claiming to be a disciple when you think you’ve got nothing more to learn is just plain dumb and shows you’ve got a lot to learn. Scripture teaches that when a disciple is fully trained he will be like his Teacher. Catholic disciples, i.e., learners, are followers of Christ who teaches them through His Body, the Church. So what has Christ taught on immigration? Do you know the mind of Christ on immigration?

I think the first response might be “Can I even know the mind of Christ on Continue Reading

The Catholic Church and Sexual Abuse

Kresta Commentary

April 20, 2010

By Al Kresta

Part One: Why 64% of Americans Believe Catholic Priests are Perverts.

A new round of reporting on Catholic clergy sexual abuse in Europe has generated a new climate of revulsion toward the Catholic Church. In spite of, I suppose some would say, because of, all the media attention, however, the public has a grossly distorted picture of clergy sexual misconduct. No one denies that great evil has been done by the likes of John Geoghan, Paul Shanley, John Birmingham, and Marciel Maciel Dellgado and a thousand others. Not to mention the shocking neglect of authorities like now Bishop John B. McCormack Continue Reading

A Big Political Moment in History

After being introduced, President Obama steps towards VP emcee Joe Biden who, not realizing that the microphone was still hot, whispers to President Obama, “This is a big F***g deal!.

It is. Mark Steyn, writing before the health care vote, lets us know just how big and what’s at stake in the age of Obamacare.

“Sometimes you do live to see it. In my book America Alone, I point out Continue Reading

Michael Jackson: In Whose Image?

Kresta Commentary

July 3, 2009

By Al Kresta

Somewhere in his unusual and brief life, Michael Jackson, a man made in the image and likeness of God, determined he would become a commodity: The Man Who Wasn’t There according to the New Republic’s John McWhorter. John’s column wasn’t harsh. It was, rather, an exercise in respectful perplexity. McWhorter was simply recognizing the product Jackson’s parents intended him to be rather than the person God created Michael to be.

Lest any doubt remain about Michael’s status as a commercial property, let his father lay claim. When a CNN reporter asked his father, Joe, shortly after Michael’s death, “How Continue Reading

Leading Abortionist Murdered

Kresta Commentary

May 31, 2009

By Al Kresta

Years ago, I debated the defrocked and excommunicated Presbyterian pastor Paul Hill (1954-2003) over the question of whether or not killing abortionists was justifiable homicide. In short, I argued “Absolutely not.” He argued that he was obligated to protect the unborn by killing their murderers and thus preventing further abortions.

Paul Hill wasn’t insane or even “mean.” Rather he was in the grip of an abbreviated logic. He reasoned that since abortionists kill children then by killing abortionists Continue Reading

Neither Angels nor Demons

Kresta Commentary

May 12, 2009

By Al Kresta

Last week I screened Ron Howard’s film version of Dan (Da Vinci Code) Brown’s Angels and Demons. The movie won’t turn you into either. But it will lay another dirty veneer over the popular media portrait of a corrupt Catholic Church menacing human progress and obstructing scientific discovery.

This is the only issue I’ll deal with in this column. I am not writing a movie review. Nor am I denying the film’s wealth of talent and fine production values. I am also ignoring the Continue Reading
