Patrick O'Donnell on 'Spirituality, Religion, and Philosophy'

Hello All,

Apropos Rick's and my posts yesterday touching on the 'spiritual, not religious,' disclaimer, as well as on  Catholic Marxism and what I called 'spiritual materialism,' I'd like to commend to MoJ readers the first two installments of a projected series of posts on 'Spirituality, Religion, and Philosophy' over at ReligiousLeftLaw.  (The most recent is here -- http://www.religiousleftlaw.com/2010/03/spirituality-religion-and-philosophy-part-ii.html -- and there you can link to the first one as well.)  These posts, like seemingly all that Patrick writes, are just wonderfully thoughtful, breathtakingly erudite, and downright inspiring. 

On a related point, some MoJ readers might find this latest installment on happenings at Focus on the Family to be of some interest: http://tpmmuckraker.talkingpointsmemo.com/2010/03/dobson_and_focus_on_the_family_less_than_amicable.php?ref=fpa .  It looks as though the organization is making a serious attempt to 'soften' its tone a bit, and as a former listener to many of its programs (as discussed earlier this year in another post), I for my part find this heartening.

All best,
