Attitudes towards reproduction in Latin America. Teachings from the use of modern reproductive technologies. (1/88)

The use of modern reproductive technology, such as in-vitro fertilization and its related procedures, has opened new areas of legal, religious and public concern. Thirty years ago, the development of effective methods to control procreation generated a debate on whether couples had the right to enjoy sex in the absence of its procreative effect. Today, assisted reproductive technology (ART) allows couples to have their own children in the absence of a direct intermediation of sex. The Catholic Church has reacted against both contraception and ART, and specific instructions have been directed to the public, the medical profession and legislators. In a recent survey, 88.4% of the population in Latin America claims to be Catholic; therefore, bioethical considerations and legal implications concerning intervention in reproduction are strongly permeated by the moral teachings of Catholicism. In 1996, 83 medical doctors and scientists, participating in the Latin American Network of Assisted Reproduction, produced a consensus document on ethical aspects and legal implications of ART. The document contains minimal ethical guidelines that Latin American professionals have decided to adhere to, even in the absence of legal regulations. This article examines how the medical profession, legislators and the public react to religious influence when confronted by difficult bioethical decisions such as the right to procreate.  (+info)

Serum folate and the severity of atrophy of the neocortex in Alzheimer disease: findings from the Nun study. (2/88)

BACKGROUND: Previous studies suggested that low concentrations of folate in the blood are related to poor cognitive function, dementia, and Alzheimer disease-related neurodegeneration of the brain. OBJECTIVE: Our aim was to determine whether serum folate is inversely associated with the severity of atrophy of the neocortex. DESIGN: Nutrients, lipoproteins, and nutritional markers were measured in the blood of 30 participants in the Nun Study from one convent who later died when they were 78-101 y old (mean: 91 y). At autopsy, several neuropathologic indicators of Alzheimer disease were determined, including the degree of atrophy of 3 lobes of the neocortex (frontal, temporal, and parietal) and the number of neocortical Alzheimer disease lesions (ie, senile plaques and neurofibrillary tangles) as assessed by a neuropathologist. RESULTS: The correlation between serum folate and the severity of atrophy of the neocortex was -0.40 (P = 0.03). Among a subset of 15 participants with significant numbers of Alzheimer disease lesions in the neocortex, the correlation between folate and atrophy was -0.80 (P = 0.0006). Atrophy may be specific to low folate because none of the 18 other nutrients, lipoproteins, or nutritional markers measured in the blood had significant negative correlations with atrophy. CONCLUSIONS: Among elderly Catholic sisters who lived in one convent, ate from the same kitchen, and were highly comparable for a wide range of environmental and lifestyle factors, low serum folate was strongly associated with atrophy of the cerebral cortex. Definitive evidence for this relation and its temporal sequence awaits the findings of other studies.  (+info)

Hospitals sponsored by the Roman Catholic Church: separate, equal, and distinct? (3/88)

For centuries, the Catholic Church has been a major social actor in the provision of health services, particularly health care delivered in hospitals. Through a confluence of powerful environmental forces at the beginning of the twenty-first century, the future of Catholic health care is threatened. Although Catholic hospitals are a separate case of private, nonprofit hospitals, they have experienced environmental pressures to become isomorphic with other hospital ownership types and, on some dimensions, they are equal. To keep pace with the changing demands of religion and the social role of the hospital, Catholic hospitals continue to redefine themselves. To justify a distinct and legitimate social role, more research should be conducted to develop and measure indicators of Catholic identity.  (+info)

Informed consent for emergency contraception: variability in hospital care of rape victims. (4/88)

There is growing concern that rape victims are not provided with emergency contraceptives in many hospital emergency rooms, particularly in Catholic hospitals. In a small pilot study, we examined policies and practices relating to providing information, prescriptions, and pregnancy prophylaxis in emergency rooms. We held structured telephone interviews with emergency department personnel in 58 large urban hospitals, including 28 Catholic hospitals, from across the United States. Our results showed that some Catholic hospitals have policies that prohibit the discussion of emergency contraceptives with rape victims, and in some of these hospitals, a victim would learn about the treatment only by asking. Such policies and practices are contrary to Catholic teaching. More seriously, they undermine a victim's right to information about her treatment options and jeopardize physicians' fiduciary responsibility to act in their patients' best interests. We suggest that institutions must reevaluate their restrictive policies. If they fail to do so, we believe that state legislation requiring hospitals to meet the standard of care for treatment of rape victims is appropriate.  (+info)

Determinants of infant and early childhood mortality levels and their decline in the Netherlands in the late nineteenth century. (5/88)

OBJECTIVE: To study the relative importance of various determinants of total and cause-specific infant and early childhood mortality rates and their decline in The Netherlands in the period 1875-1879 to 1895-1899. DATA AND METHODS: Mortality and population data were derived from Statistics Netherlands for 16 towns and 11 rural areas. Mortality levels and their decline were estimated with a Poisson regression model. The associations of the estimated levels and declines, and determinants of infant and early childhood mortality were analysed using multivariate linear regression analysis. The causes of death studied were major contributors to infant mortality (convulsions, acute digestive disease, acute respiratory disease) and early childhood mortality (encephalitis/meningitis, acute respiratory disease, measles). RESULTS: Infant mortality rates were high in the south-western part of The Netherlands in 1875-1879. Due to a rapid decline in the western regions, this pattern changed to a north-south gradient in 1895-1899. Early childhood mortality showed an urban-rural gradient in 1875-1879 with mortality high in towns. This gradient had largely disappeared by 1895-1899, due to a rapid decline in mortality in towns. Roman Catholicism was significantly associated with infant mortality (particularly from diarrhoeal disease) in 1875-1879 and 1895-1899. The association with Roman Catholicism was stronger in 1895-1899 because mortality declines were less rapid in Roman Catholic areas in 1875-1879 to 1895-1899. Urbanization was significantly associated with early childhood mortality (particularly from respiratory disease) in 1875-1879 and 1895-1899. This association weakened over time, due to the rapid decline in mortality in towns. CONCLUSIONS: Different determinants of mortality (decline) were important in infant and early childhood mortality and they acted on different causes of death. Therefore, infant and childhood mortality should be studied separately. International comparison of the results showed that findings with respect to determinants of mortality (decline) for one country do not necessarily apply to other countries. The results for The Netherlands with respect to infant mortality differed from England and Wales.  (+info)

Bioethics for clinicians: 27. Catholic bioethics. (6/88)

There is a long tradition of bioethical reasoning within the Roman Catholic faith, a tradition expressed in scripture, the writings of the Doctors of the Church, papal encyclical documents and reflections by contemporary Catholic theologians. Catholic bioethics is concerned with a broad range of issues, including social justice and the right to health care, the duty to preserve life and the limits of that duty, the ethics of human reproduction and end-of-life decisions. Fundamental to Catholic bioethics is a belief in the sanctity of life and a metaphysical conception of the person as a composite of body and soul. Although there is considerable consensus among Catholic thinkers, differences in philosophical approach have given rise to some diversity of opinion with respect to specific issues. Given the influential history of Catholic reflection on ethical matters, the number of people in Canada who profess to be Catholic, and the continuing presence of Catholic health care institutions, it is helpful for clinicians to be familiar with the central tenets of this tradition while respecting the differing perspectives of patients who identify themselves as Catholic.  (+info)

The place for individual conscience. (7/88)

From a liberationist, feminist, and Catholic point of view, this article attempts to understand the decision of abortion. People are constantly testing their principles and values against the question of abortion. Advances in technology, the rise of communitarianism and the rejection of individualism, and the commodification of children are factors in the way in which the abortion debate is being constructed in society. The paper offers solutions to end the ugliness of the abortion debate by suggesting that we would be able to progress further on the issue of abortion if we looked for the good in the opposing viewpoint. The article continues with a discussion of Catholics For a Free Choice's position on abortion, and notes firstly that there is no firm position within the Catholic Church on when the fetus becomes a person; secondly that the principle of probablism in Roman Catholicism holds that where the church cannot speak definitively on a matter of fact (in this case, on the personhood of the fetus), the consciences of individual Catholics must be primary and respected, and thirdly that the absolute prohibition on abortion by the church is not infallible. In conclusion, only the woman herself can make the abortion decision.  (+info)

Two challenges to the double effect doctrine: euthanasia and abortion. (8/88)

The validity of the double effect doctrine is examined in euthanasia and abortion. In these two situations killing is a method of treatment. It is argued that the doctrine cannot apply to the care of the dying. Firstly, doctors are obliged to harm patients in order to do good to them. Secondly, patients should make their own value judgments about being mutilated or killed. Thirdly, there is little intuitive moral difference between direct and indirect killing. Nor can the doctrine apply to abortion. Doctors kill fetuses as a means of treating the mother. They also kill them as an inevitable side effect of other treatment. Drawing a moral distinction between the direct and the indirect killing gives counterintuitive results. It is suggested that pragmatic rules, not ethics, govern practices around euthanasia and cause it to be more restricted than abortion.  (+info)

*Parochial mission (Catholicism)

A parish mission or parochial mission is, in the terminology of the Roman Catholic Church, a term applied to certain special pastoral efforts among Catholics. These are "home missions", distinguished from the apostolic missions sent to make conversions among pagans and heretics. Such missions may consist of systematic preaching and instruction, extending over a stated number of days, performed by authorized missionaries. Until the beginning of the seventeenth century there existed no organized form of Catholic popular missionary work, as it is now understood. The preaching, for example, of the mendicant orders, was not reduced to a system until the foundation of the Congregation of Priests of the Mission by Vincent de Paul. That was in France; in Italy, a century later (1732), Alphonsus Liguori founded his congregation of Redemptorists. About one hundred years later Gaspar Bufalo (died 1837) founded in Rome the Congregation of the Most Precious Blood to devote itself exclusively to parochial ...

*Great Conversation (Catholicism)

The Great Conversation is a term describing a supposed phenomenon which some Roman Catholic apologists believe takes place in purgatory. They hold that souls arriving in purgatory after death will naturally converse with each other in an effort to determine where they are and how they got there. The impression is that of a large social gathering in which every participant has much the same questions on his or her mind. According to mainstream Catholic teachings, purgatory is the process of purification in which the souls of those who die in a state of grace are made ready for Heaven. One common metaphor describes it as a place where the souls of all Christians go directly after death and where each remains until he or she is ready to be admitted to heaven. In this context, "The Great Conversation" will naturally occur in purgatory as a result of the deeply social nature of humankind: souls in purgatory will communicate with each other. C.S. Lewis once wrote that heaven knows only two languages: ...

Catholicism Today- UNDERSTANDING TODAYS CATHOLICISM Some of the more striking features of Catholicism include its imposing size, its vast sphere of influence, its unity, and its contrasting diversity. Gaining an appreciation of each of these characteristics can help us better understand contemporary Catholicism. Size. The size of the Roman church is astounding. Just less than eighteen percent (17.7) of the entire world population is Roman Catholic (a whopping total of over 928 million people, soon to be a billion).2 Additionally, the church is truly universal in scope, having parishes in virtually every major part of the world. There is a significant Catholic presence on every continent, with the possible exception of Asia. The following are some percentages of Catholics in the world: Africa, 13.9; North America, 24.2; Middle (central) America, 86.6; South America, 88.9; Europe, 39.9; Oceania, 26.5; and Asia, 2.7.3 In terms of other religious bodies, the Roman Catholic population is larger than ...

Whats the difference between Catholicism and Christianity? Catholicism is the largest denomination of Christianity. All Catholics are Christians, but not all Christians are Catholics. A Christian refers to a follower of Jesus Christ who may be a Catholic, Protestant, Gnostic, Mormon, Evangelical, Anglican or Ortho...
This book explores how a universalistic religion like Roman Catholicism could become so closely intertwined with a particularistic worldview like nationalism. It is usually taken for granted that Poland is a Catholic nation, but in fact the countrys apparent religious homogeneity is a relatively recent development, supported as much by ideology as demography. The emergence and development of that ideological framework from the late 19th century to the present is the topic of this book. Each chapter takes a keyword from Polish Catholic rhetoric and explores its shifting meanings over this tumultuous era. The concepts examined include: Church, sin, modernity, person, society, politics, nation, enemy, Jew, Pole, and Mary. These terms are linked in ways that support the broader edifice of Polish Catholicism, understood not as an institution (the Catholic Church), nor as a social group or ethnic community, but as a theological and ideological framework that sets the discursive boundaries between that which
The Roman Catholic Church is a denomination of Christianity headquartered in Vatican City. Roman Catholics believe in the divinity of Jesus Christ, who is the Son of God, and worship the God of Abraham. The Roman Catholic Church has a single leader, the Pope, who is also the Bishop of Rome. The current Pope is Benedict XVI. Present day governance of the Church is divided hierarchically into Dioceses overseen by a Diocesan Bishop, who in turn oversees Diocesan priests and deacons on the level of the individual Church. The Church has always been pro-life and its leadership is mostly conservative, as illustrated by how it "launched a crackdown on the umbrella group that represents most of Americas 55,000 Catholic nuns" for "a prevalence of certain radical feminist themes incompatible with the Catholic faith." The Church noted that "the group was not speaking out strongly enough against" abortion.[1] Members believe that theirs is the oldest Christian denomination in the world. It is certainly the ...

I wouldnt dare besmirch the good that protestants have accomplished over the centuries. Yet I cant help but view Protestantism as a lesser faith, in some cases a watered-down version of Christianity, in others a distortion, providing many of the truths Catholicism recognizes, granted, but a facsimile nonetheless. On the one hand, you have a faith founded on a doctrine and a tradition of principles the priests of the Old Testament, Christ and his disciples, and Paul practiced and taught, not to mention the rich history, rituals, and beauty. On the other you have Martin Luthers 95 theses nailed to the Wittenberg door in 1517, which has resulted in over thirty-thousand denominations today, many of which are absolutely bonkers and all lacking an ultimate authority as to the veracity or legitimacy of their particular or peculiar interpretations ...
The Eastern Rite Catholic Churches are churches that follow the ancient liturgical traditions of the East, while being in full communion with the Roman Catholic Church and placing themselves under the ultimate authority of the Bishop of Rome. Some of these churches, like the Orthodox Church, follow the Byzantine tradition, while others follow other liturgical traditions. The history of each Eastern Rite Catholic church is unique, some having sided with Rome at the time of the Great Schism and some being joined to Rome after that time. They are sometimes referred to as Uniates, a term which many Eastern Catholics reject as derrogatory. Many of these churches have a direct non-Catholic (usually Orthodox or Oriental counterpart. Others exist only within the Catholic Communion. ...

MANILA, Philippines: The presumptive Philippine president-elect has blasted the countrys dominant Roman Catholic church as the most hypocritical institution and accused some of its bishops of corruption for allegedly asking favors from politicians, including him.. In a late-night news conference that dragged on to the early hours of Sunday in southern Davao city, Mayor Rodrigo Duterte questioned the relevance of Catholic bishops, citing his overwhelming victory in the May 9 presidential election based on an unofficial count despite efforts by them to persuade Filipinos not to vote for him.. Such harsh public condemnation of the influential church and its bishops by a top politician is rare in the Philippines, Asias bastion of Catholicism. It presages a potentially thorny relationship between the Catholic church and the incoming president, who shocked bishops in November when he cursed Pope Francis for sparking a huge traffic jam that trapped him for hours during a visit to Manila..

Featured Member Collection:. Loyola Marymount University Catholicism in Los Angeles. This exhibit highlights pieces from Loyola Marymount Universitys digital collection, which focuses Catholic influences in Los Angeles history. Materials in the collection come mainly from Workman Family Papers and Dockweiler Family Papers.. Mary Julia Workman was a devout Catholic who participated in social and religious movements in Los Angeles. In 1901, she founded the Brownson House Settlement Association, an organization that helped underprivileged and immigrant families. Among other civic pursuits, she founded the diocesan chapter of the National Council of Catholic Women in 1924. John Francis Dockweiler, part of the politically influential Dockweiler family, continued that political tradition. Dockweiler served as a Democratic Congressman from 1933-1939 and then as District Attorney of Los Angeles County from 1940-1943. His bid for governor of California in the 1938 Democratic primary was unsuccessful. ...
He has until Aug. 6 to respond.. And the university will dissolve its relationship with the local Newman Center, which for decades has been paying instructors to teach Catholicism under the UIs religion studies department.. This fall, the Urbana campus will pay Howell $10,000 a semester to teach Catholic thought.. His status continues to be that of an adjunct professor, hired on a year-to-year basis, said Robin Kaler, the chief spokeswoman for the Urbana campus.. Howell could not be reached immediately for comment.. He was told in May [2]that he would not be returning in the fall. A student had complained in an e-mail [3]to campus officials that Howell had written an e-mail [4]about natural law and homosexuality.. Kaler declined to say whether the rehiring was related to publicity about Howell.. The university values academic freedom. As the fall semester was fast approaching, the decision was made to contract with Professor Howell to teach Catholic studies, while the committee continues to ...
The tragedy of the Heavens Gate cult, which resulted in the loss of 39 lives, was unfairly compared by some in the media to Catholicism. Here are a few examples.. On Nightline, pictures of the Vatican were shown while introducing the subject of religious cults. On talk radio, Ron Kuby, who assisted the late William Kunstler, said there was no difference between believing that a space ship was coming to save the cult members and a belief in the Immaculate Conception. And Harvard lawyer Alan Dershowitz contrasted the cults beliefs with a belief in angels.. It is tempting to see anti-Catholicism at work here, but in fairness, what it shows is the consequence of believing in nothing. Agnostics and atheists have a hard time understanding anything that is not scientifically verifiable and thus tend to relegate to the bin of superstition any belief in a transcendent universe. That their own beliefs are substantively hollow is not something they are willing to entertain.. At bottom, those who like to ...

Michael Rea is a bigwig in the philosophy dept. at Notre Dame. That may be the most prestigious philosophy dept. in America, although Plantingas departure a few years ago certainly reduced its nimbi aura somewhat. Reas public apologetic disclaimer for Swinburnes keynote address at the SCP, where he defended the traditional view that homosexuality is a "disorder," is just another example in the ongoing collapse of institutional Catholicism.

The Catholic Church in Nigeria is part of the worldwide Catholic Church, under the spiritual leadership of the Pope, the curia in Rome, and the Catholic Bishops Conference of Nigeria (CBCN). The president of the CBCN is Ignatius Ayau Kaigama, Archbishop of Jos.[3]. The Latin and Eastern Catholic Churches comprise the worlds largest Christian Church, and its largest religious grouping. In 2005, there were an estimated 19 million baptised Catholics in Nigeria [4] and 22.6 million in 2010.[5]. Nigeria, together with Congo Democratic Republic, boasts of the highest number of priests in Africa. The boom in vocation to the priesthood in Nigeria is mainly in the eastern part (especially among the Igbo ethnic group) which accounts for over 70 percent of the countrys Catholic population.. The second papal visit to the country in 1998 witnessed the beatification of Blessed Cyprian Michael Iwene Tansi. Pope John Paul II proclaimed him blessed at Oba, Onitsha Archdiocese, a local Church established by ...
Finally, rather than calculating the percentage of Catholics in a nation, the raw estimate of the population of Catholics can be used to compare it with all Catholics in the Asia Pacific region. I illustrated this using the NYT data in the previous post, and I now show it side-by-side with the Pew version. I thought this was interesting to observe because the number of Catholics per nation tells us different things based on our reference point. The 76 million Filipino Catholics (according to the Pew data) make up 81% of all Filipinos, but only 58% of all Asian Catholics. Its still clearly the lions share and its particularly notable given that when were talking about all Catholics in Asia, were including millions of believers from China and India. Despite being a much less populous nation than these two giants, Filipino Catholics are still the majority. The Filipino percentage of Asian Catholics is a bit smaller using the NYT data, at 53%. The rank ordering is pretty much the same for ...
Though we can lay this disaster at the feet of the Irish bishops, the Church can and is turning back to true Catholicism in many areas of the US. Thankfully we have bishops with backbones such as Bishop Morleno in your state there Father Z. He is a great man and seems to be bringing Catholicism back to my home state. I was there visiting a parish where he has brought in some Spanish priests who are not afraid to teach the truth. Sadly, many of the Catholics in those parishes rebelled and went to other more cafeteria parishes in the area. But in those parishes where these Spanish priests are located, there are many vocations (five in one parish alone in just seven years) and strong Latin Mass communities. Now these same parishes that were decimated by rebellion against Catholic teachings are growing again but with more solid Catholics, those willing to fight for their God and their Church. These new priests will bring true Catholicism back to that area. I pray that many more bishops will follow ...
It was revealed this week that a Scottish NHS trust is paying the Catholic Church £30,000 a year to provide "out-of-hours spiritual care", largely to ensure that dying patients receive the last rites.. The Edinburgh Secular Society condemned the deal, saying it found it strange that the "well-funded Catholic Church requires the tax-payers of Scotland to top up its coffers".. Garry McLelland, chair of the ESS said: "I would find it strange if the Catholic Church was to leave one of its members lying in hospital without providing a service because the state refuses to foot the bill".. NHS Lothian has entered into the "service level agreement" with the Archdiocese of St Andrews and Edinburgh. While the Church banks the money, members of the clergy receive £10 per week for their work. A previous arrangement, whereby a chaplain from the RC Church was employed at a salary of £56,000 a year was scrapped because of "poor on-call service".. Sandy Young, NHS Lothians head of service for spiritual care ...
The Roman Catholic faith was accepted in parts of Germany from the fifth century after Christ onward. In the 1200s, German Crusaders, called the Teutonic Knights, conquered pagan Prussia (Preußen) and converted it to Catholicism. Catholicism remained the predominant faith of Germany until the 1500s, when the Reformation movements of Martin Luther and the Swiss religious reformers began to take hold. There was much conflict between Catholics and Protestants. In the 1550s, the Catholic Church began a counter reformation movement. The Thirty Years War, which swept across central Europe from 1618 to 1648, had its origins in religious conflicts between rulers of parts of Germany and Austria. After the war, the Catholic, Lutheran, and Reformed churches were the only recognized state churches. Smaller religious groups, such as Jews, Mennonites, and Huguenots, were still persecuted by the Protestant and Catholic churches. Roman Catholics have remained predominant in southern Germany than in northern ...
Im probably in the minority here, but I dont really care about peoples religion as such. If they like sitting in a beautiful building and smelling incense while some guy in white robes reads from an old book - or if they like sitting naked in a circle around a candle in the woods and invoking unseen spirits, whats it to me? In the end, we all have our little delusions we need to help us get through the day.. What I care about is how people treat other people. The core of my "religion" is recognizing and respecting other peoples humanity. The one mortal sin in my theology is treating someone - anyone - like they dont matter, like you can do what you want with them. (I include awful people like Hitler and Idi Amin in that, too.). And thats what makes me see the Catholic Church as evil. Treating people like so many pieces of bric-a-brac, dividing not just non-Catholics, but Catholics as well into two groups: real people and hellfire fodder, this is not just priests or whoever acting badly on ...
Id like to thank @Liberty&Virtue, Giuseppe Scalas, WAB, and KD for their thought provoking posts. I wanted to add that, while I think that Catholicism would and did thrive under a much smaller state, and that many of the problems that Rod chronicles are really problems of the ever expanding state, I still think that the relationship between Catholicism and liberalism, even in its most austere, Classical forms will always be at best strained. Im reading Deneens "Democratic Faith" and he makes the argument that from the beginning but especially in strains of liberalism that draw on Rousseau is the idea of human perfectibility. Human perfectibility and equality seems impossible to shake from the liberal-democratic mind which (IMO, at least) leads us to things like transgenerism, transhumanism, etc. I havent finished the book though. Also, because of Catholicisms expansive claims of justice and the suffering that will inevitably happen under a truly small clasically liberal state, Catholics are ...
In the past week, several Irish-Catholic pundits have commented on the sexual misconduct scandal in the Catholic Church. Catholic League president William Donohue has been tracking this and offered the following comments today:. "William F. Buckley Jr., William Bennett, Patrick Buchanan and Pete Hamill are understandably upset with the Church scandal. But all have written responsibly on the subject. Unfortunately, some Irish Catholics have let their Irish get the best of them.. "On March 17, Bill OReilly wrote in the New York Post that the current problems are due to the fact that the Catholic Church is a dictatorship. Hes off by 180 degrees. It is precisely the opposite condition that prevails: it is the unwillingness to enforce the most elementary rules-touching virtually every aspect of the clergy, religious and laity-that is driving the problem. Bills head is still in the 1950s and early 1960s.. "On March 19, Jimmy Breslin in Newsday offered kudos to a priest buddy of his who violated ...
The "Second Ecumenical Council of the Vatican" (termed Vatican II), was called by Pope John XXIII and was in session from 1962 to 1965. It dramatically modernized and transformed church policies, with major changes to official theology and liturgy. Liturgical changes included the introduction of Mass in local languages instead of Latin. Theologically, the council deemphasized the centrality of Mary while also adding a new emphasis on individual and personal holiness. These were ideas previously associated with Protestantism and had, in some cases, been features in the opposition to the Catholic Church since the time of the Protestant Reformation. The Council asserted the Churchs support for freedom of religion, declared that the Jews were not guilty of deicide, and recognized the possibility of salvation for Jews, Muslims, and Protestants. After Vatican II, 1962-65, the controversy among Catholics over papal authority and infallibility largely ended, though some significant degree of opposition ...
Spain Table of Contents Spain, it has been observed, is a nation-state born out of religious struggle between Catholicism and, in turn, Islam, Judaism, and Protestantism. After centuries of the Reconquest, in which Christian Spaniards fought to drive Muslims from Europe, the Inquisition sought to complete the religious purification of the Iberian Peninsula by driving out Jews, Protestants, and other nonbelievers. The Inquisition was finally abolished only in the 1830s, and even after that religious freedom was denied in practice, if not in theory. Catholicism became the state religion in 1851, when the Spanish government signed a Concordat with the Vatican that committed Madrid to pay the salaries of the clergy and to subsidize other expenses of the Roman Catholic Church. This pact was renounced in 1931, when the secular constitution of the Second Republic imposed a series of anticlerical measures that threatened the churchs very existence in Spain and provoked its support for the Franco ...
Former evangelical megachurch leader Ulf Ekman, who in March announced to his congregation at Word of Life in Sweden that he was leaving the Protestant ministry to join the Roman Catholic Church, recognized in a new article that the decision had caused an "uproar" among the faithful.

CWR: With the Sacraments of Initiation, several Eastern Catholic Churches administer all three sacraments at the same time to infants. What is the Chaldean Catholic Churchs practices?. Father Kako: We give two sacraments, baptism and confirmation, [to] babies. And then, [later] penance and Holy Communion. The celebrations, well, theyre differently celebrated from the Latin Rite, yet they are the same, you know? So if you are confirmed in the Chaldean Catholic Church, that definitely means you are confirmed in any Catholic Church of the world.. CWR: In recent years, we all know that ISIS has decimated Christian communities in the Middle East. However, reports keep trickling in of neighborhoods being liberated from ISIS control, thanks be to God. What is the current situation like in Iraq, Iran, and Syria for Chaldean Catholics? How large of a threat is ISIS today to Chaldean Catholics and other Christians?. Father Kako: To be honest with you, the problem is not only with ISIS. The problem is ...
Suppose the government should pass the management of our public schools over to the Roman Catholic Church, would Cardinal Gibbons then oppose them as a great evil at all? We risk nothing in saying every objection would be withdrawn instantly and the trust would be accepted, and Instead of an evil, the public school system would henceforth be the greatest factor in modern civilization, and for the reason that it could then be made to serve the ends and purposes of the Roman Catholic Church. But if the public schools would be good and useful under Catholic management, why may they not be equally good and useful under the management of those who are independent of the Roman Church? The reason Is quite clear-under independent management the Catholic Church cannot turn its output to its own advantage as she can when she has control, and you may be sure that when the Catholic Church does anything in which the public is concerned that she has an eye to business, looking to her own fancied best ...
Today, a man flew a small plane into a building in Austin. Its captured our attention for most of the day. It turns out that the pilot was very frustrated and did what is effectively a suicide attack on an IRS office. He also torched his own house with his wife and child in it. It appears that one of his intents was to get the world to read his suicide note. His drastic measures have proven successful.. Although I cant understand or endorse what he did, I found a lot in his note that I agreed with. The main theme was about how so much of American life is gamed by the big guys and how little power the little guy has to stop it. He railed against tax codes that exploited his profession, health care, the legal code, the political system that fails to represent the people, and the Catholic church. He called the church "vulgar" and "corrupt" and bemoaned the fact that they have received tax exemptions that helped make them wealthy. I agree completely with the spirit of his complaints, even though I ...
Much the same can be said for Catholicism. Despite the bullshit claims that the Catholic Church is the inheritor the late antique Western Christian Orthodox church through the Second Council of Orange, the fact remains that the Catholic Church is pretty much a high mediaeval construct. Then you have to take into account that the modern Catholic Church traces its roots not to Second Orange in 529 and certainly not to Constantines Nicaea but to the Council of Trent and you end up with the problem that the Catholic Church, as it is now constituted, was invented pretty much on the fly as a response to Luther at the start of the early modern era. Then factor in the destruction of the Papal States in the 1870s and the creation of the (previously unknown) concept of Papal Infallibility and chuck in a liberal dose of Vatican II ...
This article covers the church records for Vila Real that were published in two separate collections; one collection under Portugal, Diocese of Vila Real Catholic Church Records for 1575-1975, housed at the Diocesan Archive and the collection Portugal, Vila Real, Catholic Church Records for 1533-1941, housed at the District Archive of Vila Real. These are records of baptisms, marriages, and burial/deaths from parishes in the Diocese of Vila Real, Portugal. The text of the records is in Portuguese. Earlier records are handwritten in narrative style and newer records are handwritten in formatted registers. Parish priests performed the ordinances for baptisms, marriages, deaths, and burials, and the other holy sacraments in the jurisdiction of their assigned parish or parishes. All the original parish records were kept in the parish archive under the custody of the priest. However, a duplicate of these registers was regularly sent to the diocesan archive where the records were centralized and kept ...
It is an ancient custom of the Catholic Church that at the Baptism of infants, there must be at least one Catholic godparent and not more than two, one of each gender, chosen to assist the parent in raising the child in the faith and to represent the expanded spiritual family of the child and the role of the Church as the mother.. Later, godparents help the parents so that children will profess the faith chosen for them and live up to it. Their role is to ensure that the rich and beautiful faith of the Catholic Church is passed on to the child in the most loving and authentic way possible.. Corpus Christi Churchs guidelines for godparents correspond to the Universal Law of the Church. See Canon 874 and Canon 893 of the Code of Canon Law.. ...

The first exclusive interview Pope Francis gave was to family - to his Jesuit journalist brothers and their publications around the world. It was refreshingly frank, pastoral, quite disarming.. The second interview he gave, again stunningly outside the Vaticans tight network, was to an admired non-believing journalist. More personal, fascinating, revealing conversation, a no-scold approach, just marvelous! At the end of the second interview Francis says to the editor, "Lets talk again, and well talk about women." Ah. Yes. Lets.. But that conversation should not be with a non-believing newspaperman or a fourth-estate Jesuit, but a frank talk among Pope Francis, a Catholic sister feminist theologian and a female Episcopalian bishop. These will be women who believe what they can see and experience, phenomenologists, like most of people in the world, not only with Roman Catholics who believe in natural law. In other words, Pope Francis will engage with women that bishops and priests usually ...

Only 10 percent of lay religious teachers now accept church teaching on contraception. Fifty-three percent believe a Catholic can have an abortion and remain a good Catholic. Sixty-five percent believe that Catholics may divorce and remarry. Seventy-seven percent believe one can be a good Catholic without going to mass on Sundays. By one New York Times poll, 70 percent of all Catholics in the age group 18 to 44 believe the Eucharist is merely a "symbolic reminder" of Jesus. At the opening of Vatican II, reformers were all the rage. They were going to lead us out of our Catholic ghettos by altering the liturgy, rewriting the Bible and missals, abandoning the old traditions, making us more ecumenical, and engaging the world. And their legacy? Four decades of devastation wrought upon the church, and the final disgrace of a hierarchy that lacked the moral courage of the Boy Scouts to keep the perverts out of the seminaries, and throw them out of the rectories and schools of Holy Mother Church. ...
The Reformation cant be forgotten and should not be erased from history. Therefore, Protestants and Roman Catholics cant combine into one, unified religion.
Together, Henry and Cranmerwere responsible for the death of thousands of Catholics and Protestants alike, most of their victims done in in very gruesome ways. In addition to the bloodshed, Henry usurped the powers granted to Parliament and emasculated the great tradition of English law begun with the enacting of the Magna Carta. It can truthfully be said that the English Reformation was enforced upon the common people by a campaign of terror. His confiscation of private property and enactment of Poor Laws made England a nation of paupers. It has been claimed that on his deathbed in 1547, Henry had a vision of monks and priests coming to accompany his soul to hell!. Cranmer, as we know, got his just desserts in the reign of Mary, Henrys oldest (and only legitimate) child, daughter of the good Queen Catherine. Mary had remained staunchly Catholic through all the upheaval and bloodshed of her fathers new religion. When he was convicted of treason and sentenced to the stake, Cranmer recanted his ...

www.RemnantNewspaper.com When kingdom and priesthood are at one, in complete accord, the world is well ruled, and the Church flourishes, and brings forth abundant fruit St Ivo of Chartres to Pope Paschal II. 1106AD. The prime papal teachings on the subject date chiefly from the 19th and early 20th century, since that was when the Church had to face the issue most acutely. Some, therefore, think that the encyclicals that date from that time are therefore no longer relevant and may be safely ignored.. Nothing could be further from the truth.. It almost seems customary among many modern Catholics to think that any document before Vatican II can be safely ignored. Vatican II itself taught the exact opposite and makes it quite clear that such an attitude is not only not Catholic but not Christian. Indeed, it is scarcely human. How can one ignore one s own history and traditions? But it is much worse in a Catholic since traditio the handing on of traditional teachings and practices is the very essence ...

rational human beings are expected to believe that the Holy Spirit is guiding the process of the papal conclave. When cardinals vote a certain way, we are told, it was because the Holy Spirit told them to. Its time for a reality check. Many of the men who will be voting - or running - for the next pope have blood on their hands - blood ofchildren. Yet, we are supposed to believe they have an inside track to the Holy Spirit. From the beginning of the Roman Catholic Church, throughout its history, and including today, Roman Catholicism has been a corrupt empire disguised as a Christian religion. Ive heard many people credit it merely because "it has been around for 2,000 years". It hasnt been around that long and does it matter that it has only survived as long has it has because it has succeeded in fooling gullible people? Does it matter that it has grown as large as it has because many of its converts joined only under the threat of death? Does it matter than the majority of Catholics were ...
DrAndroSF: Jung was a neo-pagan-self-worshipping hater of Catholicism/Christ. Jung saw himself and his kind as the absolutely necessary replacement for the Catholic priest. Self professed gnostic Jungs work is one long new-age/lie replacement for Truth. He demanded his clients/patients give up their Catholicism whilst courting Catholic priests so he could pick their brains. His first apprentice to Jungism klled himself in a convenient sacrifice to Jungs big fat lies about the solar man. His Mary and her Assumption was significant to him because he, from his protestant neo-pagan POV saw a pagan goddess in her (anti-Catholic), not the Immaculate Conception. Jungs legacy is one of the most damaging of the 20th century - he is the father of the new-age. Lets not forget this is the bloke who said, The Fuhrer must be allowed to be himself, as he replaced an exiled Freud and watched his books burn. (Im no Freud fan, BTW). ...
Throughout our history were made ​​Protestants fighting against the invaders in Rio de Janeiro, the Brazilian Northeast and elsewhere to ensure the purity and integrity of the Catholic faith in Brazil. But after Vatican II, with the emergence of liberation theology, charismatic renewal, ecumenism, and other movements that came to wear the apostolic and missionary spirit of the Church in Brazil. The CNBB imprint left, did nothing, and apparently neither will do anything to stop this invasion of our heretical Terra de Vera Cruz. We are very sorry but we will not give up on restoring the integrity of the faith of our Lord Jesus Christ against the heresies, the secularíssimo, spiritualism of the powerful media, the indifference of the majority of the clergy and the leftists who infested our universities and media. Our Lady of Aparecida and São Pedro de Alcântara pray to God for us! ...
The Old Catholic churches throughout the world are independent national churches that disagreed with the absolute power of the papacy and the claims of papal infallibility after the Council of Trent (1545-63). This opposition occurred in three separate and distinct historical movements. First, the Old Catholic church of Holland (1724); second, the churches of Germany, Switzerland, Austria, and Czech-Slovakia at the first Vatican Council (1869-70); and lastly, church groups located in North America, Great Britain, Philippines, and the Slavic nations in the twentieth-century leading to the present day. The novelty about these revolutionary movements against the Roman papacy is that they occurred from within the Roman rite (the principal ancient liturgical and canonical) tradition of the Latin rite Western Church. This implies that the genesis of Old Catholicism occurred as a Roman Catholic revolt against papal supremacy in all its forms. It must be clearly understood that Old Catholics never ...

Growing up Catholic, Lent was that dreaded time of year when my siblings and I were obligated to make a sacrifice for that month and a half long stretch before Easter, also known as our spring break. Looking back I cant remember the first year when I was actually able to commit for the full 40 days. From giving up Reeses and pizza, to cutting back on the 5 hours a day I spent playing Super Mario on my Gameboy, it was always a challenge to stay disciplined about it.As a college student it didnt get any easier to keep up with the traditions I was raised with. While I still had a desire to maintain my religious beliefs, my schedule made that quite difficult. I found myself skipping church on Sundays to attend a different form of church called the library.. With Lent in full swing I had to think a lot about what I could give up this year in an effort to remain a good Catholic. I was always taught to sacrifice something that will not only better your own life, but more importantly improve the ...
Bruce, I expected to get flamed for my comment. My experience with the left, and left-leaning sites has been complete opposition of anything religious. I was immediately turned ON to this site because it approaches the subject of religion, and specifically Christianity from a left-leaning viewpoint, but without immediately dismissing religion as some stupid kooky cultism that the Right practices.. Thank you for not flaming me and for furthering intelligent debate by making a truthful (albeit pithy ;) ) comment about the state of affairs. I mean that sincerely, not sarcastically.. I was a rabid Right Winger protestant and recently (few years ago) converted to Catholicism and it has opened my eyes to how nationalism and the concept of freedom (the American version of it) are blinding Christians in general.. Catholicism calls us to transcend nationalism and aspire to communion with all humanity (under Christ of course, but most people can identify with the first part, at least). The Church is ...
A group of pro-choice Catholics is urging Prime Minister Stephen Harper to include abortion and contraception in his controversial G8 maternal health policy.. The American-based organization Catholics for Choice, which has about 100 members in its Canadian branch, has penned a letter to Harper that says Catholics around the world support access to family planning as a matter of personal choice and that millions of good Catholics use contraception.. We urge the Canadian government to return to its leading role in advocating for family planning, including in the G8 agreement on maternal health, the letter reads. In so doing, the government will have the support of Catholics domestically and internationally in your efforts to help reduce maternal mortality.. Rosemary Ganley, coordinator of Catholics for Choice Canada, signed the letter jointly with the groups American president. She said members of Catholics for Choice use theological principles of Catholicism - such as primacy of ...

According to the Catholic Almanac 2000, Catholics comprise 22.7 percent of the U.S. population. Catholics are also concentrated in key electoral states; notably, New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Michigan, Wisconsin, Illinois, Texas, and California are each at least 24 percent Catholic. In political terms, this makes Catholics an extremely significant group within the American electorate, and one that has the potential to swing the election. In fact, no Democrat has ever become president without capturing at least half the votes of American Catholics. This raises key questions: Will the way Catholics have voted in the past translate to the upcoming election? Are Republican and Democratic leaders targeting Catholic voters specifically? And can they target Catholics? How much of a role does voters Catholicism play in how they vote? Is there a Catholic vote? To address these issues, Conscience interviewed several leading political scientists, sociologists, and pollsters. Tom Smith is the ...
I am a professor at Ewha Womans University, where I teach composition, research writing, and cultural issues, including the occasional graduate seminar on Gnosticism and Johannine theology and the occasional undergraduate course on European history. My doctorate is in history (U.C. Berkeley), with emphasis on religion and science. My thesis is on Johns gospel and Gnosticism. I also work as one-half of a translating team with my wife, and our most significant translation is Yi Kwang-sus novel The Soil, which was funded by the Literature Translation Institute of Korea. Im also an award-winning writer, and I recommend my novella, The Bottomless Bottle of Beer, to anyone interested. Im originally from the Arkansas Ozarks, but my academic career -- funded through doctoral and postdoctoral fellowships (e.g., Fulbright, Naumann, Lady Davis) -- has taken me through Texas, California, Switzerland, Germany, Australia, and Israel and has landed me in Seoul, South Korea.

In some corners of the internet, the idea of two grown adults sitting and having a conversation about faith would be laughable. In others, being open to discussing the thornier issues of the nature of evil and a persons moral obligations would be considered too dark. But here we are, sitting at this table with them, and no ones laughing.. Matt revisits the church twice over the next two episodes, actually coming inside this time rather than opting for a basement espresso. He comes right up to the edge of telling the priest his plan to murder Fisk, and says that he knows hell be damned if he goes through with it. Later on, as Matt and Karen try to deal with Elenas death, they have a mirror conversation. While Karen isnt religious, she does believe that Fisk will pay, cosmically speaking, for what hes done, even if the law cant touch him. Whats interesting is that Matt, the man of faith, cant accept that as enough.. This ends up being the true turning point of the show-the final four ...
As described in St. Paul and the tradition of the Fathers, the Church is not only a Body, with visible head and members and a juridical structure, it is also the Body of Christ. He bears a relation to the Body which is so intimate that Augustine often equates the two and, as in the phrase Christ preaches Christ, practically identifies the Lord with the Society that shares His name. Our penetration into the mystery will follow the same analogy, comparing the Church to a human Body and Jesus Christ in the role of its Founder who brought it into existence, its invisible Head who gives it life and sanctification, its constant support by His divine Spirit and its loving Savior by His cross and eternal redemption. Reflection on these affinities underlay the Gospel of St. John and the Pauline Epistles, and occasioned the most sublime insights of the great mystics. Under different similitudes, the alliance of Christ with the Church, as Bridegroom with His Spouse and the Vine with the Branches, is the

It is worth noticing that all further Documents issued by the Ministry of the Church, in especial by the Pope, belong to the common Ministry of the Church and all Christians must respect and follow them, even though they are not "ex-cathedra" Documents. Vatican Council II affirmed that:. "Among the principal duties of bishops the preaching of the Gospel occupies an eminent place. For bishops are preachers of the faith, who lead new disciples to Christ, and they are authentic teachers, that is, teachers endowed with the authority of Christ, who preach to the people committed to them the faith they must believe and put into practice, and by the light of the Holy Spirit illustrate that faith. They bring forth from the treasury of Revelation new things and old, making it bear fruit and vigilantly warding off any errors that threaten their flock. Bishops, teaching in communion with the Roman Pontiff, are to be respected by all as witnesses to divine and Catholic truth. In matters of faith and morals, ...
A man dying of AIDS at the Gift of Peace Hospice, administered by the Missionaries of Charity in Cardinal Donald Wuerls Archdiocese of Washington, asked for baptism. When the priest asked for an expression of faith, the dying man whispered, "All I know is that Im unhappy, and these sisters are very happy, even when I curse them and spit on them. Yesterday I finally asked them why they were so happy. They replied Jesus. I want this Jesus so I can finally be happy ...
Although Franco himself was previously known for not being very devout,[41] his regime often used religion as a means to increase its popularity throughout the Catholic world, especially after the Second World War. Franco himself was increasingly portrayed as a fervent Catholic and a staunch defender of Catholicism, the declared state religion. The regime favoured very conservative Roman Catholicism and it reversed the secularisation process that had taken place under the Second Republic. According to historian Julian Casanova, "the symbiosis of religion, fatherland and Caudillo" saw the Church assume great political responsibilities, "a hegemony and monopoly beyond its wildest dreams" and it played "a central role in policing the countrys citizens".[42]. The Law of Political Responsibility of February 1939 turned the Church into an extralegal body of investigation as parishes were granted policing powers equal to those of local government officials and leaders of the Falange. Some official ...

A catechism is a tool for teaching the young, and clarifying for the old the holdings of a religion, major and minor.. For instance, the Roman Catholic Baltimore Catechism, revised in 1941, asks questions American bishops want answered for their flock, and their flocks children.. Current Catholic parents, the rams and ewes, also want answers for their little lambs, and they arent alone. The catechism is still available from CatholiCity.com. Of course it is. Answers are clearly provided.. Here are some questions from the opening chapters, with answers provided by me, as best I can, from the perspective of a progressive Christian. Catechisms are meant to provide surety; mine, not so much.. Who made the world? God made the world. But its tough to understand how.. Who is God? Dunno. Think very big, huge, then bigger. Thats the point. Cant know.. Who made me? Mommy and Daddy, and all the moms and dads before them. God is involved at a loving molecular level, and says that it is good. Hold the ...
The Church, you see, is hierarchical. The Pope is head of the Church, Latin is the head of all languages, the man is the head of the woman and abortion is the head of morality. The body of Catholic moral teaching is a conglomerate of minor issues that are not essential to the true Catholic identity. A Catholic can, in good conscience, pry an illegal Mexican immigrant from his family and waterboard him in order to gather reconnaissance to bring down unions and end health care for the poor as long as he does not support abortion. Boehner understands this and implements it into his political life. He knows that Christs desire was for the poor to always be with us and that they are blessed who do not have access to health care. He realizes that taxes are stealing. He realizes that it is hard for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of heaven and that they need all of the help that they can get ...
Important information on the activities of Magi is preserved also in Mesopotamian documents of the Achaemenid period. These Magi probably came to Babylonia to perform religious rituals for the Persians and Medes who stayed in that country as royal officials and soldiers. The names of these Magi, when they are mentioned, are Iranian. But Babylonian texts mention Magi only in connection with their administrative tasks, as well as witnesses in legal and economic documents along with Babylonians. For instance, a letter from the archives of the Eanna temple in Uruk records that a Magus was to check on the flour storage which apparently belonged to this temple (Clay, no. 66). In one case a Magus and a scribe of the same temple were assigned to supervise some workmen (Keiser, ed., Babylonian Inscriptions, no. 40). In one document from Babylon drafted in 496 BCE, provisions are mentioned, which were destined for certain Magi as well as for the workmen for the royal household (gardu-, an Iranian word) ...
Italys Roman Catholic Church says it will help to bring paedophile priests to justice after the countrys bishops ruled that it was right to do so under Canon law. The Italian Conference of Bishops stressed concern for the victims of sexual abuse and their families as they met in Rome to address the widening scandal embroiling the Church in Europe and the US.. The key to searching for the truth is to enforce the procedures and penal rules of Canon law with rigour and transparency, the episcopal conference said in a statement after the talks.. But the bishops also decided the rules of the Church Canon are not in contradiction to - and indeed converge with - honest collaboration with the state authorities charged with establishing the truth.. The Roman Catholic Church has been thrown into crisis in recent weeks as dozens of people came forward alleging they were abused as minors by priests.. Scandals have erupted in Italy, Germany, the Netherlands, Austria and Switzerland, while Ireland and ...
Islam vs Catholic ism. Islam and Catholicism share many similarities. Islam is one of the religions practiced by many around the word, as it is one of the second largest religions in the world. Catholicism is the largest prominent religion, with followers across the globe. According to a report from the Vatican, released in 2008, 19 percent of the worlds population is made up of Islam, while Catholics make up only 17.4 percent of worlds population.. The origin of Islam can be traced back to the six hundred Christian era, and was founded by Prophet Muhammad, in Mecca. According to the historians, Prophet Muhammad received the revelations from angel Jibril (Gabriel). After which he complied the revelations into the holy book " Quran. People from Islam religions follow the teachings of the Prophet, and accept Allah as God.. Islam has a few fundamental beliefs that make the founding ground of Islamic faith. They are:. ...

Though here you have to start digging deeper into what the Catholic Church was versus what it has become. To a greater degree, both in the Old Testament and later with the Catholic Church, the priest class was pretty much the ruling class of those societies. There wasnt any clear separation between The Church and the Kings/rulers. This is part of why there isnt much discussion in the Bible about any separation between the kings and the priests. They were one and the same. During the city-state era of Italy, Rome was just another province and the Pope was essentially the king of Rome. They fought wars and led armies against other city states. While a great deal of the mysticism of the religion of the time centered on allowing the priests and bishops access to other areas of the world, it was essentially just an extension of the former power of the Holy Roman Empire after the fall of the pre-feudal societies in Europe. It is hard to imagine, but for centuries, the Church and the various rulers ...
Aromatic l-amino acid decarboxylase (AADC) is required for the synthesis of the neurotransmitters dopamine and serotonin. Children with defects in the AADC gene show compromised development, particularly in motor function. Drug therapy has only marginal effects on some of the symptoms and does not change early childhood mortality. Here, we performed adeno-associated viral vector-mediated gene transfer of the human AADC gene bilaterally into the putamen of four patients 4 to 6 years of age. All of the patients showed improvements in motor performance: One patient was able to stand 16 months after gene transfer, and the other three patients achieved supported sitting 6 to 15 months after gene transfer. Choreic dyskinesia was observed in all patients, but this resolved after several months. Positron emission tomography revealed increased uptake by the putamen of 6-[18F]fluorodopa, a tracer for AADC. Cerebrospinal fluid analysis showed increased dopamine and serotonin levels after gene transfer. ...
Patients with sickle cell disease (SCD), an inherited haemoglobinopathy, have increased risk of malaria, at least in part due to impaired splenic function. Infection with Plasmodium falciparum in SCD patients can trigger painful vaso-occlusive crisis, increase the severity of anaemia, and contribute to early childhood mortality. A 17 year-old Tanzanian male with known SCD was admitted to Muhimbili National Hospital, a tertiary referral centre in Dar-es-Salaam, following an attack of malaria. From 2004 to 2007 the patient had lived in USA, and from 2010 to 2016 in France where, on account of hypersplenism and episodes of splenic sequestrations, in 2014 the spleen was removed. After appropriate clinical and laboratory assessment the patient was re-started on hydroxyurea; and anti-malarial-prophylaxis with proguanil was instituted. The patient has remained well and malaria-free for the following 15 months. SCD patients are highly vulnerable to malaria infection, and impaired splenic function is a feature

Downloadable! Burley tobacco production in Malawi was liberalized to permit production by smallholders in the early 1990s. The purpose of this paper is to show which smallholders began producing burley tobacco after liberalization and which smallholders still continue to produce it. Analysis of the characteristics of burley tobacco producers shows that only smallholders who had adequate farm size and adequate funds could start to produce it. With regard to the farm size requirements, only smallholders who had enough acreage to sell tobacco on the auction floors and who had enough acreage to rotate crops could start to produce. With regard to the financial requirements, only smallholders who could procure funds through informal institutions or who possessed their own capital to meet the necessary agricultural expenditures could start. So, it was only the wealthy households which could start to produce tobacco after liberalization and continue to produce it.
