'Don't Plead With Me Not To Die'
Rev. Dr. Martha R. Jacobs, 06.03.2011
Author, 'A Clergy Guide to End of Life Issues'

WWJD? A Non-Violent Conflict Resolution for Palestine
Sami Awad, 06.02.2011

The Jim Tressel Scandal: Smashing Celebrity Icons
Rev. Jonathan Weyer, 06.02.2011
Author, 'The Faithful'
I hate what Tressel did. I hate that he lied. But even more, I hate that I put him in a position to break my heart so much. He should never have been there in the first place.

Alvin McEwen​, 06.02.2011
Blogmaster, Holy Bullies and Headless Monsters

Rev. James Martin, S.J., 06.01.2011
Catholic priest and author, 'The Jesuit Guide to (Almost) Everything'
