    Bishop Loverde RALLY

    An op-ed from Bishop Paul Loverde 

    Written by Arlington Bishop Paul S. Loverde for First Things, April 26, 2016.

    Something is afoot. “Porn and the Threat to Virility” recently hit the stands not in the form of a religious tractate, but on the cover of Time. Just days prior to that, in “Amoris Laetitia,” Pope Francis decried the “flood of pornography” and its pernicious spread which deform sexuality. If you missed both Time and Pope Francis, then perhaps you heard the news last week from Utah. The state declared pornography a “public health crisis.”

    Rev. Kevin J. Downey, O.F.M., a priest of the Franciscan Friars of the Holy Name Province, has been placed on administrative leave pending investigation of an allegation of sexual misconduct.
