Steve Ray’s New Facebook Page

by Steve Ray on November 23, 2010

Can you have too many friends? Facebook says YES. At the 5,000 friend threshold, Facebook forces us to set up a new page.

My old page at www.Facebook.com/JerusalemJones will be discontinued on January 1, 2011 and this new page will replace it.

The new site is now available at www.facebook.com/CatholicConvert.

All posts and comments will now be on the new page. Go to www.facebook.com/CatholicConvert and CLICK ON THE “LIKE” BUTTON ON THE TOP – THE BUTTON WITH THE THUMBS UP –

Two Stories: Carol’s and Martin’s

by Steve Ray on November 23, 2010

To read Carol’s Conversion Story, click here. It is a short and instructive read, especially for those who love conversion stories. She moved from Methodist to Baptist to Catholic

Martin really traveled the religious map: he went from Evangelical to Baha’i, to Eastern masters, to Eastern Orthodox before finally coming home to Rome. You can read his story here.

For hundreds more of such stories from every conceivable background, or to add YOUR conversion story, click here.

An Atheist Comments on the “Priestly Scandal”

by Steve Ray on November 23, 2010

Though I obviously do not agree with everything this atheist writes on the matter, I think he is being more objective and fair than most anyone else in the secular media with all their hysteria and exaggerations and ready accusations. I think this is a good read for honest people to get a better perspective on the matter — and that from an atheist.

“With all the newspaper headlines about predatory paedophiles in smocks, terrified altar boys and cover-ups by officials at the Vatican, it is hard to think of anything worse right now than a sexually abusive priest. Yet today‚Äôs reaction to those allegations of sexual abuse is also deeply problematic. For it is a reaction informed more by prejudice and illiberalism than by anything resembling a principled secularism, and one which also threatens to harm individuals, families, society and liberty.”

For my previous posts on this topic especially the bias against the Catholic Church when this problem is far more prevelent in other institutions especially Protestant churches, click here.
