The Roman Catholic bishop of Baton Rouge considers weekly whether to lift an order that lets members of his flock miss Mass on Sundays because of the coronavirus pandemic, but no changes are in the works just yet. Bishop Michael Duca said late Thursday that a dispensation remains in place for Catholics he leads. A spokeswoman for the Diocese of Lafayette had said this week she believed the dispensation was "under discussion" among the state's bishops. Duca said the status quo remains for the 212,000 Catholics in the diocese, which has 64 church parishes in 12 civil parishes in and around Baton Rouge. "We are maintaining our current policies but are re-evaluating them each week. No date has been set to lift the dispensation," he said late Thursday.

Los Angeles Archbishop José Gomez warned Thursday that as U.S. politics and culture become more “aggressively secular,” America risks losing its soul. “Sadly, some of our leaders seem to want to close our society off from Christian ideas and values,” Archbishop Gomez said in an online keynote address to Catholic advocates gathered at the Minnesota state capitol. “I am troubled by the growing censorship of Christian viewpoints on the internet and social media and the marginalization of believers in other areas of our public discourse,” the archbishop said. “These trends and directions in our society amount to a rejection of America’s founding principles, and the consequences are not healthy for our society.” “America’s founders were wise; they understood the realities of human weakness and sin,” he continued. “The democracy they built depends on the virtue and morality of citizens.” “The founders presumed that our public morality would be grounded in individual religious … [Read more...] about Los Angeles Archbishop Decries ‘Growing Censorship of Christian Viewpoints’
On Wednesday, former Bachelor star Colton Underwood came out as gay in an exclusive interview with Good Morning America . Speaking to Robin Roberts, Underwood explained it had taken him years to come to terms with the fact he is gay, even going so far as to appear on one of the most heteronormative shows on television while struggling with his sexuality. "I've ran from myself for a long time. I've hated myself for a long time," Underwood said. Underwood’s years of turmoil and struggle were clear on his face during the interview, in which he was visibly emotional and nervous. He explains his childhood growing up as part of the Catholic Church made him feel being gay was a sin, and that anti-gay slurs he heard during his sports career (he played football at Illinois State University and briefly in the NFL) only added to the shame he felt. He discussed deeply personal issues, alluding to suicidal thoughts and self-hatred. Underwood, 29, said that when he was chosen as the … [Read more...] about Colton Underwood Came Out As Gay.
