Why don’t they just call it the Catholic March for Life? I wonder this every year when I wander down to Capitol Hill for the annual commemoration of Roe v. Wade. Thousands of anti-abortion Catholics and a few friends gather in Washington, DC for an always-cold schlep to the Supreme Court. This year was no exception. Emboldened by the recent Republican anti-choice gains in the House of Representatives, the crowd was more hopeful than in recent years but otherwise largely unchanged. They were Catholics.

Episcopal Divinity School recently launched a new blog, 99 Brattle: Progressive theology and critical thinking to transform the world. This new form of communication and engagement will help EDS and its bloggers to "share our ideas about how progressive Christianity can transform the world."
Mary E. Hunt is among the first contributors, with a piece which highlights three reasons to get behind the DREAM Act. Read it here: http://99brattle.blogspot.com/2011/01/ask-tell-dream.html and let us know what you think!
