Sunday Snippets

It’s Sunday Snippets day over at This, That & The Other Thing, where a bunch of Catholic bloggers share what we’ve been talking about this week.

I haven’t been overtly religious this week; what I have been is passionate about issues that are secular, but intimately wound up with faith:

First, Down syndrome;

Second, politics; namely, why I am going on strike in at least one political race this November. Lots of thoughtful comments on those posts–all of which have caused me to think, but not to change my mind.
