Revelation via Natural Metaphor

Excommunication is not rare -- declaring it is!

An article in the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, "Burke excommunicates board and priest," says
Excommunication is rare, according to Monsignor Ronny Jenkins, a professor of canon law at the Catholic University of America in Washington.
This is, unfortunately, quite inaccurate. According to canon 1398,
A person who procures a completed abortion incurs a latae sententiae excommunication.

Upon what do we base Intelligent Design theory?

Anointed by God [Isaiah 61:1-2a,10-11]

Topics: 
In the reading from Isaiah, chapter 61, we find a prophesy of salvation after a period of immense travail. Using language that hearkens to the jubilee year, declared in Leviticus, chapter 25, Isaiah tells us,
The spirit of the Lord GOD is upon me, because the LORD has anointed me; he has sent me to bring glad tidings to the poor, to heal the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives and release to the prisoners, to announce a year of favor from the LORD and a day of vindication by our God.
