Warren Mitchell

Tim Kaine

Tim Kaine

Sylvia Plath

Sylvia Plath

I saw the first of the 7-mile-long column appear – red and orange and green banners, ‘Ban the Bomb!’ etc., shining and swaying slowly. Absolute silence.

We Protestants automatically assume that the Pharisees are the Catholics. They are the self-righteous people who have made Christianity a form of legalistic religion, thereby destroying the free grace of the Gospel. We Protestants are the tax collectors, knowing that we are sinners and that our lives depend upon God’s free grace.

Stephen Hough

Schubert, Franck, and Liszt were all Roman Catholics who questioned or doubted or lived in different ways, and religion was certainly part of all their lives.

One of the problems with the identification of Christianity with love is how such a view turns out to be both anti-Semitic and anti-Catholic. The Jews and Catholics become identified with the law or dogma, in contrast to Protestant Christians, who are about love.

I grew up on the north side of Chicago, in West Rogers Park, an overwhelmingly Jewish neighborhood.

I suffered the spiritual equivalent of whiplash.

Sarah Bolger

I became a minister of the Eucharist when I was 17. My parents aren’t very strict Catholics, but for some reason I decided this is what I want to do, and I have kept it up.

Ross Douthat

Where conservative Catholics have the power to resist what seem like false ideas or disastrous innovations they must do so.

Ron Howard

Ron Howard

I have very close friends who are very devout Catholics, and I talked to them before the ‘Da Vinci Code,’ and it was very difficult for them, but I talked to them before ‘Angels and Demons,’ and they said the scandal, abuse of power and violence was part of church history, which you can read about in the Vatican bookstore.
