What does religion in general, and Christianity in particular, have to do with rights and human rights?
Back in May, I published a post here about the Black Mass controversy at Harvard. Writing that story left me frustrated with the media coverage of the event, because I found almost no information on what the actual ceremony consisted of, or what the beliefs and goals of the organizers and participants were. So I decided to ask them myself.
For most of us, the Vatican isn’t the first place that comes to mind when thinking of major players in the environmental activism world.
For many, the significance of the Black Mass hung on the question of whether or not a consecrated host would be used.
