Argent October 14, 2007 - 2:44 pm Well, Jeff, first clue….St. Frances Cabrini Catholic Community (Church? We’re happenin’, we’re now! We’re relevant)…you can kinda guess what follows. Which is…”We are a searching Community of wounded healers.” Oy! Esther October 14, 2007 - 4:56 pm Jeff, I’m having trouble reading your blog today. The left sidebar overlaps your posts. Mr Flapatap October 14, 2007 - 6:51 pm Our parish is called St. Raphael Catholic Church but there are some references to St. Raphael Catholic Community when referring to the church, school, and retirement home altogether. R October 14, 2007 - 7:15 pm Esther, have you checked to see whether it’s an issue with your browser/system? It’s fine for me. Paul Cat October 14, 2007 - 9:52 pm >”Soon the only thing to be closeted is orthodoxy” I’ll be first in line to come out of that closet! Esther October 14, 2007 - 9:55 pm It seems fine in IE but not Firefox. Odd. It was okay until today. Mel October 14, 2007 - 10:15 pm What? St. Joan of Arc is out-liberaled in Minneapolis? Call the PC police! Anonymous October 14, 2007 - 10:21 pm What? St. Joan of Arc is out-liberaled in Minneapolis? Call the PC police! Don’t worry. St. Joan’s will soon adopt a gay penguin as their official mascot. Word on the street is that they are already in negotiations with the Minnesota Zoo. Jake October 14, 2007 - 10:26 pm Did you happen to see the picture of that Parish where it’s to be held? Look under Weddings. There seem to be no kneeler’s and the church is smaller then a quikie mart. Interesting.

You should have said, farmers, even though most Iowa farmers raise cattle, pigs. corn or soybeans, not sheep. But I think there is a farm or 2 in the Cascade area that does raise sheep. What surprizes me is that I haven’t yet seen the book being heralded by a couple of the convents here in DBQ or by our newspaper. Or a couple of local “Catholic” Colleges. But, give them time. Elizabeth October 15, 2007 - 3:06 am I find it slightly interesting that it is about “Catholic” father and “lesbian” daughter.. Wouldn’t it make more sense to mention either religion or sexual orientation for both? Are we to assume that the daughter of her Catholic father isn’t Catholic? Al October 15, 2007 - 7:21 am The TH just arrived & there was the article about the book on the front page. Clearly the whole thing is an attack on orthodox Catholic teaching. Despite her claims to the contrary. She claims that unlike divorced people, gays aren’t welcome in the Church. I love the way she is twisting things, gay are just as welcome as anyone else is. But, the Church cannot & will not ever accept sinful behavior as OK. & that includes any type of sexual activity outside of a marriage between a man & a woman. That is what it really boils down to. John J. Simmins October 15, 2007 - 12:31 pm “Are we to assume that the daughter of her Catholic father isn’t Catholic?” We can assume that the father is NOT a lesbian. Vir Speluncae Orthodoxae October 16, 2007 - 12:36 pm There’s a word for people who make up their own rules. Well, here I am in the Orthodoxy closet. Hey there’s alot of folks in here!
