"Conservatives want to replace science with Intelligent Design in America's curricula." Correction: They want the pseudo-scientific hypothesis of "everything was created by nothing" challenged by theories that actually fit the evidence (and don't need the evidence forced to fit them). Equating evolutionism with "science" = ignorance.
A Christian can be crushed gazing at the picture of Mary standing at the foot of the cross, watching her beloved son suffocate and die. But in that vision, she stands there for hours, patiently enduring her suffering. For two millennia, she has been a role model for Christians, a woman who practiced obedience in the most difficult of human circumstances, with fervent hope for what this sacrifice will offer all mankind as it struggles with sin.

This is why it seems so hard to reflect that vision of patience when black-hearted "artists" practice character assassination on the Blessed Virgin...
