Friday Quick Hits

*In a ridiculous and quite frightening story, a British teacher is sentenced to jail in Sudan for having her class give a teddy bear the name Muhammad. Shameful to put her in jail for this.

*Apparently the ACLU thinks that a football team voluntarily going to Church is wrong.

*Big numbers aren't always good. Example - more than 37,000 religious now over 70 yrs old.

*A group in Mass. wants to ban spanking.

*Another diocese, Kansas City this time, has started to quickly up the number of seminarians.

*Lastly, First Things ends is series on Mary with these two:
