6.2 Prof. Ahdar and Prof. Leigh on the question of whether religious establishment is compatible with religious freedom

See the article "Is Establishment Consistent with Religious Freedom?", by Prof. Rex Ahdar and Prof. Ian Leigh, on pp. 635-681 of the McGill Law Journal, Vol. 49, A.D. 2004, downloaded from that journal's website here:

7. A couple of recent pronouncements by H.H. The Pope

7.1 More from H.H. The Pope on the death penalty

See the March 20, 2015 Letter of His Holiness to the President of the International Commission against the Death Penalty:

http://w2.vatican.va/content/francesco/en/letters/2015/index.html

(That Letter came to my attention via the item "Pope Francis: the death penalty is inadmissible" in the Holy See Press Office's Vatican Information Service daily e-mail bulletin of March 20, 2015, Year XXII, No. 56; that item is available here:

http://www.news.va/en/news/pope-francis-the-death-penalty-is-inadmissible)

Labels: death penalty, Francis Bergoglio, morals

7.2 H.H. The Pope on, among other things, 'the emancipation of women' and 'equal pay for equal work'

See the text of His Holiness's General Audience of April 29, 2015:

http://w2.vatican.va/content/francesco/en/audiences/2015/index.html

or see the ample extracts from that speech in the item "General audience: the dignity of marriage" in the Holy See Press Office's Vatican Information Service daily e-mail bulletin of April 29, 2015, Year XXII, No. 80; that item is also available here:

8. The New Mass's Offertory prayers "are based on Jewish blessings taken not from the Old Testament, but rather from the 5th century Babylonian version of Talmud (T.B.), a central Jewish text which codified oral law and teaching."

The quotation, including the italics, in that headline come from the blog post "ASK FATHER: Using the traditional offertory prayers in the Novus Ordo. Wherein Fr. Z rants." by The Rev. Fr. John Zuhlsdorf, dated April 20, 2015, downloaded from Fr. Z's Blog:
