SORT BY Relevancy
Let's take another look at race relations. Has it improved? Has it gotten worse? Michael Brown, another young black man gets shot, ironically by a white police officer. Riots ensue. Protests begin. Football players from the St. Louis Rams pay tribute to Michael Brown with the "Hands up" gesture during a game. Should they be fined? Are relations between the races improving or not. We'll ask you to weight in. Are we respecting each other? And not just black or white. Red, white, black, brown. Everyone. Because racial tensions happen no matter what color, creed or nationality you are.

It’s hard to find an uplifting angle on the events in Ferguson. Conservatives have drawn many familiar morals: that the media is ravenous for manufactured controversy, and will shamelessly exploit any tragedy to that end; that the Left will callously seize any opportunity to stoke racial tensions for political gain; that regrettable numbers of people prefer the satisfaction of rioting to the hard work of self-examination and community improvement.
Here is the point, in a nutshell. Minorities and impoverished Americans feel screwed by the system. They feel like pawns in the hands of a massive, incomprehensible, frighteningly invasive, and callously unfeeling bureaucratic system. This, surely, is something conservatives can understand. Middle-class conservatives are angry and frustrated because they feel screwed by “the system.” Guess what? The angry residents of Ferguson (and their sympathizers) feel the same way. We may have more common ground than we realize.

The riots in Ferguson, Mo., raged for days and exposed just how fragmented our nation is along the lines of race. Predictably the Rev. Al Sharpton, the New Black Panther Party and other assorted race hustlers made haste to Ferguson to fan the flames of Michael Brown's death. Were the police guilty of excessive force? Did the security camera video of Brown committing burglary change things? What responsibility does the Barack Obama White House own for setting race relations back decades? We will discuss all angles of this unfortunate and destructive story.

St. Fidelis - A former lawyer who left his profession to become a Capuchin Franciscan priest, Saint Fidelis of Sigmaringen has his liturgical memorial on April 24.
Leaving his legal practice behind, Mark decided to give his life directly to the service of Christ and the Church. In short order he received ordination as a priest, and joined the Capuchin Franciscans in Freiburg.
During 1614 a Swiss Catholic bishop had sought help from the Capuchins, to restore the faith and counteract the spread of Calvinist Protestantism. In 1621, Fidelis was sent on the mission. He brought just four items: a Bible, a prayer book, a crucifix and a copy of the Capuchin rule.
The winter of 1621-22 was a busy period of preaching, instruction and theological disputation for the Franciscan priest. He preached not only in the pulpits of Catholic churches, but also in public places, and even in the meeting-places of the Calvinists themselves. Some Swiss Protestants responded with hostility, but many others were also brought back to the Church.
Like many cases of religious persecution during this time, Fidelis’ treatment at the hands of the Calvinists did not stem exclusively from doctrinal disagreement. National and cultural tensions also contributed, with many Swiss Protestants suspecting that the Catholic mission was part of an Austrian plot against their nation.
Fidelis' life bridged the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, a time of religious conflict in Western Europe. He died at the hands of a mob while preaching in Switzerland, where he had gone to combat the Calvinist heresy.
