The Vindication File
Peter Fournier and Catherine Fournier
Those little bits of information that confirm what you have suspected … that conventional wisdom is wrong, that political correctness and tolerance is more intolerant that anything it is reacting to, and that two thousand years of Catholic tradition is good for more than great architecture.
Oh, and by the way, if you find my choices contentious, or you don't agree with my conclusions, please mail and let me know - that's why the Letters to The Editor space is there. As we strive to grow in faith and transmit that faith to our children and neighbors, debate and discussion about just what exactly the Catholic viewpoint is, and should be, can only serve to strengthen the domestic church.
Though it's much more fun to scroll and browse through a list like this, I've added a short table of contents to help find articles. Enjoy.
