Would you “Go On Record”?

The Catholic Peace Fellowship has started a new web project, We Go On Record. We Go On Record is an online community and posting site that allows individuals to literally go on record and state their beliefs about war. This is particularly important to individuals that do not believe in war as a morally-acceptable course of action, since if a draft is ever enacted, the local draft board would make a decision about whether or not an individual should go off to boot camp.

Using this website would allow individuals to go back and point to a historical record of their objections to war. If you have issues with the military institution, the use of war in the world and would like to do one more thing to protect yourself in a draft is activated, then you should spend a few minutes on this new website.

Welcome Home, Tony!

As is being reported by multiple sources, Mr. Tony Blair, former Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, has swam the Tiber and has formally entered full communion with the Catholic Church.

Blair, formerly a member of the Church of England, had been corrected by the Catholic Cardinal for receiving Catholic communion with his family, who are Catholic and regular Mass participants. There has been much speculation that Mr. Blair would become Catholic after leaving office, fueled a great deal when a formal visit to the Holy Father was one of his final acts as Prime Minister. While he was not prohibited by law to be Catholic while Prime Minister (unlike King or Queen of England), converting to Catholicism was an issue his office did not wish to tackle.
