Totally Catholic Youth Ministers Lounge

Are you in youth ministry and you've had it with crazed parents? Rollin' your eyes at the pastoral council? Tired of administration work? Love youth? Love the Church? Appalled at parish politics? Looking for some good games? For a creative ways to teach a lesson for Religious Ed? Just need a place to veg out and say "phew! Someone outside of the parish to talk to!"? Grab y'r Starbucks, turn the computer away from the staff's eyes, grab a seat on a donated dusty couch and let it all go.

Attitudes and Abortion

I was browsing some of my other blogstops and Amy over at Open Book had this link.

Frontline also has their take on it. Can hardly believe that anyone would be traditional minded...

And a study from Hamilton College, NY.

Wow -- that Frontline piece was eye-opening, albeit not all that surprising in others.

I recall reading an article (in Crisis magazine, I think) a few years ago in which Anthony Esolen, a professor at Providence College, made the observation that modern universities are set up in such to facilitate pre-marital sex.

That thought hadn't occurred to me previously; looking back, his observation seems like the most obvious thing in the world.

I was particularly struck by the last line in the Frontline article:

"It is a very unhealthy sexual culture we're in right now."

My mistake -- that first sentence should have said: "Wow -- that Frontline piece was eye-opening in some respects, albeit not all that surprising in others."

Yeah, Frontline you have to take with a knowing eye.

Interesting about modern universities. How are kids NOT supposed to have sex in that set up? Seriously.
