Why yes, I have spent the past few days exploring the Catholic blogosphere
“Atheists say that it’s not necessary to wear green clothing on Saturdays. And I see where they’re coming from. Wouldn’t it be really convenient to wake up on Saturday and not have to worry about digging through your dresser, looking for your one pair of good green pants? Wouldn’t it make life easier? … But here’s the secret that modern society has forgotten: there’s more to life than just being comfortable. True, it would be easy not to wear green clothing on Saturday.” A nice satire of a certain type of religious blogger.

“He insists he doesn’t want to kill me. He simply thinks it would have been better, all things considered, to have given my parents the option of killing the baby I once was, and to let other parents kill similar babies as they come along and thereby avoid the suffering that comes with lives like mine and satisfy the reasonable preferences of parents for a different kind of child.” A disability rights lawyer meets Peter Singer.
