Q: Dear 100 Hour Board,Why does it seem that the majority of the Church's most vocal critics are evangelicals and fundamentalists, but nearly all the people who leave the LDS faith go on to become atheists and agnostics?R. Stephenson A: Dear Stephenson, Having served in a mission that was the veritable hotbed of evangelical anti-Mormonism, and having several friends and family members who are formerly affiliated with the Church, I'll take a stab at your two questions. As always, these are just...

Yearbooks capture pre-coronavirus world for Southern California students

Before they started snapping pictures, writing copy blocks and designing pages, 26 Chaparral High School students selected a theme for the 2019-20 yearbook. One and only. Apropos of the months ahead, Jackie Schmidt’s yearbook students, like thousands of other creative minds across Southern California, set out in the fall to capture in art and text the uniqueness of a school year barrelling toward an abrupt and unprecedented ending. In March, as the coronavirus pandemic brought about distance lea...

US priest who founded Knights of Columbus to be beatified

The founder of the Knights of Columbus, the influential U.S.-based lay Catholic organization, is moving a step closer to possible sainthood. Pope Francis has approved a miracle attributed to the intercession of the Rev. Michael McGivney, a Connecticut priest who died at age 38 of pneumonia in 1890 during a pandemic similar to the current coronavirus outbreak. The Vatican said Wednesday that Francis had signed off on the miracle required.

Steve Bannon wins case to set up Italy political academy

Steve Bannon, the former adviser to U.S. President Donald Trump, has won the latest phase of a legal battle with Italy's culture ministry to set up a right-wing Catholic political academy. The ministry said it would appeal the regional court's decision. The court ruled for the Dignitatis Humanae Institute, which Bannon backs, against a previous decision that blocked the school starting up in an 800-year-old monastery south of Rome.

Should churches be considered essential businesses?

Over 1,200 pastors in California claim they're opening their churches this week against state orders.

Last week a group of over 1,200 pastors signed a petition to announce that their churches will be open for business beginning on May 31. This announcem...

Northeast Ohio Catholics Reflect on New Procedures for Mass As They Return to Church

Catholic Churches in Northeast Ohio are open again for in-person masses. But the services look quite different. The Cleveland Diocese has set guidelines for social distancing, such as wearing masks and blocking off pews. Karol Kirk attends St. Eugene Catholic Church in Cuyahoga Falls and says she’s excited for a sense of community again, but the changes will take getting used to. “We, as a family -- when we say the ‘Our Father’ -- link hands with the other friends around us. It will be difficult...

Churches and the Spread of COVID-19

Donald Trump has threatened to override governors who have limited church gatherings. He can’t do that legally and he shouldn’t try. Furthermore, governors should resist the calls of some church leaders to remove restrictions. Going to church is not like shopping or even eating out. With this post, I want to list situations where churches have met together and spread the virus. Some are widely known. In South Korea, much of the spread was due to a new religious movement where a single infected p...

10 Things I Wish Someone Had Told Me About Planning A Wedding

My 11 year wedding anniversary was this weekend, and while looking back on my wedding day, I of course also started reminiscing about planning my wedding. Now, if you don’t already know, here’s my story in a nutshell: I was absolutely clueless about all things weddings when I was planning my own. I wasn’t in the wedding industry yet, and because my husband and I were married right out of college (high school sweethearts here!) I didn’t have any friends to tell me what to do or what not to do. Oh...

Marriage equality in Costa Rica

By Tuesday, May 26, marriage equality will officially be legal in Costa Rica. In comparison to many neighboring countries, Costa Rica has seen significant advances in LGBTQ rights and has Central America’s only LGBT chamber of commerce. This legalization comes after the Inter-American Court of Human Rights ruled in January 2018 that all of its signatory countries must adhere to marriage equality if they are not currently doing so. As Central America is predominantly Catholic, this has not b...

Father Pfleger’s Selective Reasoning Doesn’t Apply to Guns

Priest squirting holy water

Religious services are problematic in multiple ways when it comes to social distancing, especially when it comes to the more interactive elements of a service. Receiving the host at Catholic mass is quite a challenge when you’re not supposed to come within six feet of another human being — no less being fed a cracker by that human being. Dipping your hands into a stagnant bowl of holy water at the door to bless yourself is another issue. Father Tim Pelc of Michigan is getting creative to reme...
