    NYC Archbishop Cardinal Timothy Dolan spoke to George Stephanopoulos today about the Vatican's watered down final document for its synod on the family - a report that scrapped language that seemed to indicate a dramatic new tone in the church's response to homosexuality, divorce, and contraception. Dolan, ever the bigoted firebrand, praised the African church leaders in attendance who were vocal about their opposition to any doctrine revisions that could be interpreted as pro-gay.

    Beatifying Blessed Paul VI at the concluding Mass of the Synod of Bishops on the family, Pope Francis praised the late pope as the "great helmsman" of the Second Vatican Council and founder of the synod, as well as a "humble and prophetic witness of love for Christ and his church." The pope spoke during a homily in St. Peter's Square at a Mass for more than 30,000 people, under a sunny sky on an unseasonably warm Oct. 19. "When we look to this great pope, this courageous Christian, this tireless apostle, we cannot but say in the sight of God a word as simple as it is heartfelt and important: thanks," the pope said, drawing applause from the congregation, which included retired Pope Benedict, whom Blessed Paul made a cardinal in 1977.

    Ezra Klein, champion of Obamacare, founder of Vox.com, and supposed liberal policy wonk, recently published a piece on his website defending California's new "yes means yes" law requiring affirmative consent for sex on university campuses--the same kind of measure against which over two dozen Harvard law professors, including several prominent feminists and leftists, protested in the pages of the Boston Globe last week. Klein--supposedly liberal Klein--dismisses concerns about the intrusion of the state into the bedroom, or the due process rights of the accused, and argues that it's worth potentially punishing people who fail to obtain an explicit "yes" from their partners before intercourse.
