Teaching Catholic Social Teaching through Communitarian Sensibilities

As much as Catholic social teaching is sometimes referred to as "our best kept secret" (Henriot, DeBerri, and Schultheris 1987), in recent years it has been gaining a renewed emphasis in Catholic higher education. This "renaissance" of Catholic social teaching integrates well with the self-evaluation of Catholic higher education over the past…

Values of Catholic science educators: Their impact on attitudes of science teaching and learning  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

This quantitative study examined the associations between the values held by middle school science teachers in Catholic schools and their attitudes towards science teaching. A total of six value types were studied---theoretical, economic, aesthetic, social, political, and religious. Teachers can have negative, positive, or neutral attitudes towards their teaching that are linked to their teaching practices and student learning. These teachers' attitudes may affect their competence and have a subsequent impact on their students' attitudes and dispositions towards science. Of particular interest was the relationship between science teaching attitudes and religious values. A non-experimental research design was used to obtain responses from 54 teachers with two survey instruments, the Science Teaching Attitude Scale II and the Allport-Vernon-Lindzey Study of Values. Stepwise multiple regression analysis showed that political values were negatively associated with attitudes towards science teaching. Data collected were inconsistent with the existence of any measurable association between religious values and attitudes towards science teaching. This study implies that science teacher preparation programs should adopt a more contextual perspective on science that seeks to develop the valuation of science within a cultural context, as well as programs that enable teachers to identify the influence of their beliefs on instructional actions to optimize the impact of learning new teaching practices that may enhance student learning.

Adolescent sexuality, cultural sensitivity and the teachings of the Catholic Church.

In recent years it has been increasingly recognized that physicians must be sensitive to the cultural beliefs of their patients. This is especially important for physicians who deal with sexuality, especially when dealing with adolescents. Despite this, many mainstream text-books and journal articles ignore the teachings of the largest single religious denomination in the United States, the Roman Catholic Church. The Church has clear teachings regarding sex education, masturbation, contraception and abortion. Physicians should be aware of these teachings and be sensitive to the needs of Catholic adolescents when dealing with these issues. PMID:12216423

Artificial nutrition and hydration in Catholic healthcare: balancing tradition, recent teaching, and law.  

PubMed

Roman Catholics have a long tradition of evaluating medical treatment at the end of life to determine if proposed interventions are proportionate and morally obligatory or disproportionate and morally optional. There has been significant debate within the Catholic community about whether artificially delivered nutrition and hydration can be appreciated as a medical intervention that may be optional in some situations, or if it should be treated as essentially obligatory in all circumstances. Recent statements from the teaching authority of the church have attempted to clarify this issue, especially for those with a condition known as the persistent vegetative state. I argue that these recent teachings constitute a "general norm" whereby artificial nutrition and hydration are considered obligatory for most patients, but that these documents allow for exception in cases of complication from the means used to deliver nutrition and hydration, progressive illness, or clear refusal of such treatment by patients. While the recent clarifications do not constitute a major deviation from traditional understanding and will rarely conflict with advance directives or legal statutes, there may be rare instances in which remaining faithful to church teaching may conflict with legally enshrined patient prerogatives. Using the Texas Advance Directives Act as an example, I propose ways in which ethics committees can remain faithful to their Roman Catholic identity while respecting patient autonomy and state law pertaining to end of life health care.

The rhythm is off beat: a personal view of Catholic teachings on contraception.  

PubMed

The perception that the Roman Catholic Church is obsessed with sex and sin obscures its support for causes that further social justice. However, despite agreement with most church policies, Roman Catholics of good conscience disagree with Vatican rulings banning the use of contraception. The attitude that supports this ban originated almost 2000 years ago when male theologians linked sex and sexual pleasure to original sin and decided that women were "the devil's gateway." By the Middle Ages, male theologians decided that women's only value was in procreation. This idea has been forwarded by modern Popes who outlaw contraception but allow couples to use "natural" methods of family planning. The church's current position on contraception is founded on assumptions made in the past that were based on incorrect ideas about reproduction, on cultural norms that devalued women, and on misogynist attitudes. Thus, this stand on contraception is not divinely ordained and is, instead, untenable with its fixation on sex as sin and on women as the source of sin. It is hoped that one day the church will recognize that sexuality is derived from God and that couples can use many different methods of separating procreation from sex without sinning.

This essay attempts to describe contemporary Catholic sponsored health care in the United States and to describe the purpose and structure of these particular Christian charitable organizations within the broader society. As health care has become more complex, critics claim that there is not a need for Catholic sponsored health care any longer. The author attempts to evaluate critically whether Catholic health care has a place in contemporary society. He reviews some salient biblical, ecclesial, and justice teachings of the Church to demonstrate why religious institutional presence is still needed. The author reviews contemporary health care structures to show how this is accomplished. He also uncovers additional issues which need to be addressed in order for these charitable institutions to carry on the ministry of the Church, to shape social structures, and to proclaim the reign of God.

The death penalty in Catholic teaching and medicine: intersections and places for dialogue.  

PubMed

Current debate on the death penalty in public and professional spheres is seen as divisive in nature, disallowing the possibility of common agreement. The history of views of the death penalty within the Catholic Church illustrates centuries of tensions and ambiguities as well as a current posture that manages to hold these tensions while advocating a strong position. That history of church views itself contains allusions to and intersections with medicine. There is something tangible to be gained in understanding religious views on the death penalty, in the debates both within medicine and in the public sphere. An argument is made for sufficient overlap of contemporary purpose between the goals of church and medicine to warrant further dialogue in enhanced and deliberative democratic processes.

Catholic attitudes toward abortion.  

PubMed

In the US attitudes toward abortion in the 1980s seem to have reached a more liberal plateau, much more favored than in the 1960s or earlier, but not longer moving in a liberal direction. Catholic attitudes basically have followed the same trend. Traditionally Catholic support has been slightly lower than Protestant, and both are less inclined to support abortion than Jews or the nonreligious. During the 1970s support among non-black Catholics averaged about 10 percentage points below non-black Protestants. Blacks tend to be anti-abortion and thereby lower support among Protestants as a whole. A comparison of Protestants and Catholics of both races shows fewer religious differences -- about 7 percentage points. There are some indications that this gap may be closing. In 1982, for the 1st time, support for abortions for social reasons, such as poverty, not wanting to marry, or not wanting more children, was as high among Catholics as among Protestants. 1 of the factors contributing to this narrowing gap has been the higher level of support for abortion among younger Catholics. Protestants show little variation on abortion attitudes, with those over age 65 being slightly less supportive. Among Catholics, support drops rapidly with age. This moderate and possibly vanishing difference between Catholics and Protestants contrasts sharply with the official positions of their respective churches. The Catholic Church takes an absolute moral position against abortion, while most Protestant churches take no doctrinaire position on abortion. Several, such as the Unitarians and Episcopalians, lean toward a pro-choice position as a matter of social policy, though fundamentalist sects take strong anti-abortion stances. Few Catholics agree with their church's absolutist anti-abortion position. The big split on abortion comes between what are sometimes termed the "hard" abortion reasons -- mother's health endangered, serious defect in fetus, rape, or incest. Support among Catholics for "hard" reasons ranges from about 80-88%. Abortion for social reasons such as poverty or not wanting additional children ranges from 35-50%. Catholic support for abortion also varies by geographical region, community type, and ethnic group. Support tends to be strongest in the Northeast, in large cities, and among descendants of immigrants from Italy, Eastern Europe, and France. Support is weakest among Catholics in the Southwest, in small towns or rural areas, and among the Irish and Hispanics, especially Mexican-Americans. Among Catholics, many factors cause opinion to deviate from the national average. A 2nd major political implication is the comparative dedication or commitment of supporters and opponents. Analysis of election returns in 1978 in particular failed to demonstrate any measurable anti-abortion vote, but this does not mean that in a particular constituency it could not be made a serious issue.

The revolution in birth control practices of U.S. Roman Catholics.  

PubMed

There has been a wide and increasing defection of Roman Catholic women from the traditional teaching of their Church on the subject of birth control over the past two decades and a resulting convergence of Catholic and non-Catholic contraceptive practices. By 1970, two-thirds of all Catholic women were using methods disapproved by their Church; this figure reached three-quarters for women under age 30. Considering the fact that most of the one-quarter of young Catholic women conforming to Church teaching had never used any method, the percentage of those deviating may well reach 90 as these women grow older and the problems of fertility control become more important. Much of this increasing deviation has been among the more educated Catholics, who were formerly the most faithful adherents to Church teaching. The change between 1965 and 1970 was especially striking for Catholic women who had attended college. Perhaps the most significant finding is that the defection has been most pronounced among the women who receive Communion at least once a month. Even among this group, the majority now deviates from Church teaching on birth control; among the younger women in this group, the proportion not conforming reaches two-thirds. It seems abundantly clear that U.S. Catholics have rejected the 1968 papal encyclical's statement on birth control and that there exists a wide gulf between the behavior of most Catholic women, on the one hand, and the position of the more conservative clergy and the official stand of the Church itself, on the other. That many Catholics can continue in their other religious practices and simultaneously deviate on the issue of birth control is an interesting commentary on the process of social change. Ultimately this crisis of authority will probably be resolved by a change in official teaching, since it seems doubtful that such a major discrepancy can continue indefinitely without other repercussions. At a minimum, the cost to the Roman Catholic Church will be a loss of authority in a major area of life: that of sex and reproduction. PMID:4682130

Man's limitations. The Catholic view.  

PubMed

The Assistant Bishop of Manila, Philippines, comments on Pope John Paul II teachings and former Pope Paul VI's Humanae Vitae. The Roman Catholic Church over the past twenty five years has not accepted modern contraception. Lay Catholics are confused over the appropriate behavior regarding family planning, are ignorant of the Church's teachings, or have followed their conscience. Critics say that the teachings are obsolete and unheeded. Church officials respond that the Church is run by divine inspiration and not majority rule. The Church position is based on reason and on God himself, who prohibits man-made contraception. Paul VI revealed that the conjugal act was the link between unitive and procreative meanings, and man did not have the right to break the link on his own initiative. John Paul II reaffirms this position by stating that human beings do not have "absolute dominion over the conjugal act" and are not the final arbiters of the creation of life. Humans are servants of the creation of new life as collaborators and procreators. Humans act like Gods when they deprive the conjugal act of procreative meaning through contraceptive use. Natural family planning does not violate this divine prerogative. The Pope's teachings are verified. There is evidence of declines in conjugal infidelity, the lowering of moral standards, increased abortion, and the demise of demographic imperialism. The Church recognizes the problem of overpopulation, and the Catholic Bishops Conference of the Philippines acknowledges the responsibility of all sectors of society to solve the problem. Catholics in the Philippines are opposed to the Ramos' administration's aggressive birth control program. The opposition is due to the government's lack of provision of sufficient information about the side effects of modern contraceptives and the neglect of natural family planning, which is the only morally legitimate form of contraception sanctioned by Roman Catholics. Freedom of choice means only modern methods. PMID:12345271

Religious Beliefs and Cancer Screening Behaviors among Catholic Latinos: Implications for Faith-based Interventions  

PubMed Central

Although most U.S. Latinos identify as Catholic, few studies have focused on the influence of this religious tradition on health beliefs among this population. This study explores the role of Catholic religious teachings, practices, and ministry on cancer screening knowledge, attitudes and behaviors among Latinos. Eight focus groups were conducted with 67 Catholic Latino parishioners in Massachusetts. Qualitative analysis provided evidence of strong reliance on faith, God, and parish leaders for health concerns. Parishes were described as vital sources of health and social support, playing a central role in the community's health. Participants emphasized that their religious beliefs promote positive health behaviors and health care utilization, including the use of cancer screening services. In addition, they expressed willingness to participate in cancer education programs located at their parishes and provided practical recommendations for implementing health programs in parishes. Implications for culturally appropriate health communication and faith-based interventions are discussed. PMID:24858865

COMPARING THE TEACHING INTERACTION PROCEDURE TO SOCIAL STORIES FOR PEOPLE WITH AUTISM  

PubMed Central

This study compared social stories and the teaching interaction procedure to teach social skills to 6 children and adolescents with an autism spectrum disorder. Researchers taught 18 social skills with social stories and 18 social skills with the teaching interaction procedure within a parallel treatment design. The teaching interaction procedure resulted in mastery of all 18 skills across the 6 participants. Social stories, in the same amount of teaching sessions, resulted in mastery of 4 of the 18 social skills across the 6 participants. Participants also displayed more generalization of social skills taught with the teaching interaction procedure to known adults and peers. PMID:22844137

A Catholic ethical approach to human reproductive technology.

This article presents the Catholic Christian tradition and teaching on the moral respect due to human life from conception, supported by natural law moral philosophical reasoning. This approach contrasts with the ethical views of secular philosophers on human embryo research for therapeutic purposes. The challenges for Catholic healthcare institutions is to find ethical ways of using suitable pluripotent stem cells for therapies without creating or destroying human embryos. Catholic teaching on infertility treatment and reproductive technology are presented with emphasis given to the ethical need for children to be conceived and born of the marriage union compared with alterative ethical approaches for the use of infertility treatment and reproductive technology.

The place of God in synthetic biology: how will the Catholic Church respond?  

PubMed

Some religious believers may see synthetic biology as usurping God's creative role. The Catholic Church has yet to issue a formal teaching on the field (though it has issued some informal statements in response to Craig Venter's development of a 'synthetic' cell). In this paper I examine the likely reaction of the Catholic Magisterium to synthetic biology in its entirety. I begin by examining the Church's teaching role, from its own viewpoint, to set the necessary backround and context for the discussion that follows. I then describe the Church's attitude to science, and particularly to biotechnology. From this I derive a likely Catholic theology of synthetic biology. The Church's teachings on scientific and biotech research show that it is likely to have a generally positive disposition to synbio, if it and its products can be acceptably safe. Proper evaluation of, and protection against, risk will be a significant factor in determining the morality of the research. If the risks can be minimized through regulation or other means, then the Church is likely to be supportive. The Church will also critique the social and legal environment in which the research is done, evaluating issues such as the patenting of scientific discoveries and of life. PMID:21535064

The Catholic Church's response to the pandemic of HIV / AIDS.  

PubMed

Individual members and the organizational structures of the Catholic church have done much to respond to the HIV/AIDS pandemic over the course of the last decade. Most notably, Conferences of Catholic Bishops have seized the opportunity to reinforce conservative moral teachings and values, especially with regard to sexual behavior and marital relationships. Church leaders have expanded the vision of church-related HIV/AIDS services far beyond that of providing health care to a whole range of social and pastoral activities. Caritas Internationalis has sponsored educational and awareness-raising seminars for church leaders and other professionals at the regional, national, and local levels while also supporting service programs around the world expanding medical and social service facilities; supplies of food, medicines, and HIV-antibody testing equipment; staffing and transportation for mobile home care programs; and support for residences for homeless persons with AIDS, for development-oriented orphan care programs, and for alternative income-generating projects for commercial sex workers. Caritas has been particularly successful in promoting North-South and South-South experience coordination and cooperation among AIDS service providers. Finally, the church is uniquely able to help dying people confront the final realities of HIV/AIDS. PMID:12179301

Teaching 'race' at medical school: social scientists on the margin.  

PubMed

This essay examines the efforts of social scientists and humanities scholars to teach students at a major US medical school about 'race'. The objectives were to explain that race is no longer considered a biologically legitimate concept and to demonstrate that race remains an influential social classification, causing social and biological harm. That is, these educators sought to reframe the medical significance of race. An examination of the email discussions of those involved in this teaching exercise (which included the author) reveals concerns over the credibility of social scientists and humanities scholars speaking on genetics in the modern medical school. It also indicates the intellectual and curricular marginalization of critiques of racial classification in medical education. In science studies journals one can read convincing deconstructions of the new genetics of race, but it is rare to find an analysis of how ideas about race figure in the mundane practice of educating future medical doctors and researchers. Through examination of an exemplary, wide-ranging discussion of an attempt to teach on race in the medical curriculum, this essay addresses the disciplinary and institutional difficulties of translating critiques of controversial science into pedagogy.

Teaching medical students social responsibility: the right thing to do.  

PubMed

As academic medicine has become more focused on the economic pressures of the marketplace, some educators have expressed concern about whether appropriate attention is being given to the character development and moral education of medical students. The authors conclude that medical schools do indeed have a duty to teach their medical students to be socially responsible. They define a socially responsible individual as a person who takes part in activities that contribute to the happiness, health, and prosperity of a community and its members. They suggest that medical students should participate in carefully designed, socially responsible activities in order to (1) practice and have reinforced such qualities as reliability, trustworthiness, dependability, altruism, and compassion; (2) partially reimburse society for the cost of their medical education; (3) increase their exposure to a population-based approach to health care; and (4) help medical schools fulfill their social contract with the public. The authors outline the process for developing a curriculum to teach social responsibility to medical students and list some of the key questions faculty and administrators must address in the processes of development and implementation. They conclude that while faculty responsible for implementing a curriculum in social responsibility must be highly committed and prepared to address numerous difficult questions concerning the curriculum's philosophy, structure, and function, the potential benefits of such a curriculum are well worth the effort.

The purpose of this study was to explore and understand the types of socialization experiences that result from engineering teaching assistantships. Using situated learning as the theoretical framework and phenomenology as the methodological framework, this study highlights the experiences of 28 engineering doctoral students who worked as engineering teaching assistants (TAs), in response to the following research question: What socialization experiences do engineering doctoral students report going through as a result of being engineering TAs? Data was obtained via interviews (individual and focus group, with participants from various schools of engineering at Purdue University), informal observations, and supporting documents. These multiple data sources were analyzed and triangulated to find recurring themes in and characteristics of the graduate engineering TA experience. Participants in this study characterized their socialization experiences in the following categories: participation in TA training of different kinds, interactions with different groups of individuals, the undertaking of various types of TA responsibilities, the balancing of teaching and research, and the use and development of certain skills. In addition, some differences in experiences were found depending on type of TA appointment, stage of doctoral study, semesters as a TA, career goals, and engineering program.

[Legacy and promises from the teaching of Social Sciences in the Health field].  

PubMed

The article analyzes the teaching and learning of social sciences in health sciences courses from the perspective of the curriculum and learning generated by research groups and thesis supervision activities. The author conducts a rereading of the classics and main contemporary scientists, based on the subarea's scientific output and her own personal experience as professor, researcher, and thesis supervisor. The article focuses on the tradition and teaching of the classics in social sciences, the main contemporary social theories, social sciences in health with an emphasis on teaching, and observations on the interface between teaching in social sciences and life sciences. The author concludes by highlighting the importance of work by social scientists in the health field and identifies the following problematic points: difficulties in dealing with mediations between the biological and the social; frequent subordination of foundations to techniques; and ideological and common-sense issues in the teaching and appropriation of Social Sciences in Health.

Catholic Voices and Cairo.  

PubMed

This article analyzes issues addressed by the Program of Action of the UN 1994 International Conference on Population and Development held in Cairo in relation to the views of the Catholic Church. The principles formulated in Part II of the article provide the ethical framework for the Cairo approach to population and development. Basically, the article argues, the foundational principles of the Program of Action are consistent with Catholic values. The areas of agreement between Catholics and the Cairo Conference are reflected in the principles of the universality of human rights, the centrality of people as the concern of development, the right to development, the need for population- related goals, the need for sustainable development, the need to eradicate poverty, the right to education, the priority of children, the rights of migrants, the right to asylum, indigenous rights, and development responsibilities. Debate between the Program of Action and the Church centers around issues concerning women, health, and family. In particular, there are disagreements regarding principles four, eight, and nine. These are the principles of women's human rights, the empowerment of women/reproductive rights, the right to health, reproductive health, safe motherhood, abortion, sexual health, sexuality education among adolescents, and the definition of the family.

Catholics and abortion: authority vs. dissent.  

PubMed

A paid advertisement, appearing in "The New York Times" on October 4, 1984 under the sponsorship of a group called Catholics for a Free Choice, contended that there is more than 1 legitimate, i.e., theologically and ethically defensible, viewpoint on abortion within the Roman Catholic tradition. The advertisement called for a dialogue on abortion among Catholics; a dialogue that would acknowledge this situation of pluralism, not only in regard to practice (Catholics have about the same proportion of abortions as Protestants in the US) but in regard to the ethical state of the question. The ad explicitly asked for the cessation of institutional sanctions against those with dissenting positions on abortion. In the months following the ad's appearance, its admonition that dissenters should not be penalized has not been heeded. The chief initiative in this repression has come from the Vatican. In early December 1984 there arrived in the mailboxes of the religious superiors or bishops of the 4 priests and brothers and most of the 24 nuns who signed the statement a letter from the head of the Vatican's Sacred Congregation for Religious and Secular Institutes. This letter, dated November 30, 1984, stated that the position taken in "The New York Times" advertisement was "in contradiction to the teachings of the Church" and that the ad's signers were "seriously lacking in religious submission to the mind of the Magisterium." Any signer who declined to make a public retraction was to be warned by the superior with an explicit threat of dismissal from his/her religious community. The 2 priests and the 2 brothers made "pro forma" statements of retraction. None of the nuns who signed was willing to do so. When the nun-signers, through their religious superiors, indicated that they would not retract the statement nor would the superiors threaten them with dismissal, the Sacred Congregation appeared to back off. To date, none of the nuns has fully complied with the request to affirm the church's teaching authority on abortion, and none has been dismissed from her order. Yet, the Vatican clearly is not pleased with this insubordination. By January 1985 it was evident that reprisals against the lay signers were beginning also. Various incidents directed against the signers have led the signers and their supporters to redirect their attention from the question of pluralism on abortion to the right of dissent itself. A network calling itself the Committee of Concerned Catholics is gathering signatures for a new "New York Times" ad. The new ad will repeat the 1st ad's statement on pluralism in regard to abortion, adding to it a statement of solidarity with the original signers and a defense of the right to dissent.

Teaching human poses interactively to a social robot.  

PubMed

The main activity of social robots is to interact with people. In order to do that, the robot must be able to understand what the user is saying or doing. Typically, this capability consists of pre-programmed behaviors or is acquired through controlled learning processes, which are executed before the social interaction begins. This paper presents a software architecture that enables a robot to learn poses in a similar way as people do. That is, hearing its teacher's explanations and acquiring new knowledge in real time. The architecture leans on two main components: an RGB-D (Red-, Green-, Blue- Depth) -based visual system, which gathers the user examples, and an Automatic Speech Recognition (ASR) system, which processes the speech describing those examples. The robot is able to naturally learn the poses the teacher is showing to it by maintaining a natural interaction with the teacher. We evaluate our system with 24 users who teach the robot a predetermined set of poses. The experimental results show that, with a few training examples, the system reaches high accuracy and robustness. This method shows how to combine data from the visual and auditory systems for the acquisition of new knowledge in a natural manner. Such a natural way of training enables robots to learn from users, even if they are not experts in robotics. PMID:24048336

In 1980 the World Health Organization (WHO) reported that such methods are of very limited usefulness in developing countries and much more research is required if they are to become generally effective. The Church has not been very helpful in promoting population concern in the international forum. The Vatican nearly succeeded in having any reference to population completely excluded from the Third UN Development Plan. The US and European Catholic Bishops have issued strong statements condemning nuclear war, but how many voices are raised in the Catholic Church to warn about the population explosion. In the slums of the 3rd world, there have been numerous warnings against "immoral" birth control methods, but little attention has been given to the problem of rapid population growth or to realistic efforts to deal with it. The question that arises is, is it consistent to be so concerned about humankind's possible future while almost totally ignoring the population explosion. It is true that the population factor is only 1 part of the problem of world poverty; the other elements also call for a solution. The present Pope has gone further than Paul 6 in stressing human rights, but human rights can never be realized as long as hundreds of millions of poverty stricken people lack basic necessities. Is there no way, under the circumstances, to reconcile the teachings of the Papal document banning contraception, the "Humanae Vitae," with the needs of those couples who are not able to care for another child but who cannot effectively practice family planning. In a recent message sent through Cardinal Casaroli to the Second International Conference on the Family of the Americas, Pope John Paul 2 demonstrated his realization and compassionate understanding of this dilemma.

One view of certain questions in the Roman Catholic community.  

PubMed

Many people, both within and without the Roman Catholic Church, do not understand how the Church operates. The Church is not an efficiently run, centrally organized and centrally planned organization with a single party line from which no one deviates. The Church is an organism that expresses its single faith in a plurality of applications, which result in differing opinions, differing moral evaluations, and an abundance of organizations which defy complete centralization. There is within the Catholic Church a uniformity party which is made up of a handfull of Church administrators who subscribe to the false vision of Roman Catholic organization which is fully controlled from the center, with a single party line to which all subscribe. This uniformity party chose to test the renewal of the Church's plurality by restating the teaching against contraception in the form into which that teaching had hardened from the time of Pope Pius 11. The prohibition was restated in an encyclical letter issued by Pope Paul 6 entitled Humanae Vitae. Written with full knowledge that Church discipline in this area had begun to waver, the encyclical attempted to restore, both in teaching and in practice, the rejection of all means of birth control other than planned abstinence from intercourse. This effort was remarkable for its failure both among the clerical and the lay. In fact, the dissent is probably a majority position at least among educated Catholics. The uniformity party has continued their effort, and the ''Declaration on Certain Questions Concerning Sexuality'' that deals with masturbation, homosexuality, and premarital sexual behavior is 1 of these efforts. Both in theology and practice, Roman Catholics have rejected the absolute prohibition of birth control by contraceptive means. It should follow that the same Roman Catholics will reject the absolute prohibitions against all instances of premarital sex, masturbation, and homosexuality found in the later document, the Declaration. Further discussion focuses on the theory of nature which makes of these documents a single theological whole and the ways in which authority will be exercised in both Church administration and Church teaching.

Catholic health care: future blueprint.  

PubMed

Every Catholic hospital is influenced by one of two models of behavior, the private-business model and the public-service model. Which model eventually dominates an organization's actions is determined by the behavior of its leaders--sponsors, trustees, executive managers, and physicians. Since these internal forces are more likely than are external forces to determine an organization's course, Catholic health care leaders must consciously decide which value they wish to embrace. They also must improve their ability to forecast and influence the future, beginning with the creation of an independent national commission formed to assess the status of Catholic health care. Religious institutes, seeking collaboration and dialogue among themselves, should play a key role in implementing such a commission's recommendations. The Catholic health care systems that emerge in the future as a result of long-range planning and a value-driven philosophy will be multicongregational rather than owned by a single religious institute, fewer in number and larger in scope, and influential on a regional level. They will be expected to participate in networking with local non-Catholic providers and to integrate finance and delivery. PMID:10279352

Sex and the body in the Catholic tradition.  

PubMed

This article concerns the teachings on sexuality in the Latin Catholic tradition that have influenced ambiguity towards sex and virginity. These teachings were rooted from early Christian asceticism that contain elements of a counter-cultural, subversive movement against the dominant pattern of family and society. In the early Christian family, class and ethnic lines were leveled, and women emancipated to preach alongside men. However, radical movements that linked Christianity with sex rejection and marriage, allows emergence of a complex synthesis of patriarchy and celibacy. Marriage was affirmed to the laity, doubling women's subordination to their husbands and clerical authority, while equating their sexual and reproductive roles to sin and death. Sexual renunciation carried a radical vision through asceticism, and renunciation of sex was seen as a key expression of world renunciation. Christians focused more on the body and the repression of its needs, including sex. There were conflicting views concerning marriage, celibacy and sex. Until the mid-20th century, teachings that rejected the possibility of the goodness of sexual pleasure continued to characterize Catholic teachings. The negative teachings of the church on sexuality as degrading has not resulted in an abstemious Western society and has not produced a healthy view of sex. What is needed for the church and culture, is a new erotic art that seeks to assist people in developing their capacity for sexual pleasure and enjoyment, while incorporating it into deep friendship, so that sex becomes increasingly an expression of mutual love, commitment, and caring.

Catholic Charities v. Superior Court.  

PubMed

Court Decision: 109 California Reporter, 2d Series 176; 2001 Jul 2 (date of decision). The California Court of Appeal, Third District held that a law requiring employers who provide prescription drug insurance benefits to include coverage for prescription contraceptives was constitutional and did not violate a Catholic-based charity's First Amendment right to freedom of religion. Catholic Charities of Sacramento challenged the constitutionality of a state statute requiring such coverage. The court found the law constitutional because the purpose of the statute, "elimination of gender discrimination in a woman's health insurance coverage...in an area afforded constitutional protection," was valid, neutral, and secular. The court also held that, even though the law may incidentally affect the plaintiff, the purpose of the law was secular, its primary purpose neither advanced nor inhibited religion, and the law did not foster excessive government entanglement with religion.

Out of the ghetto: integrating Catholics into mainstream psychology in the United States after World War II.  

PubMed

The American Catholic Psychological Association (ACPA) was a voluntary association that formed and then transformed itself during a distinctive period of American history. Socially, American Catholics were primed to emerge from what they called their "ghetto," as this formerly largely immigrant group began to enter the economic and social mainstream. Institutions of higher education and psychology were recipients, moreover, of federal funding in the wake of World War II, and some of this money flowed to Catholic institutions. The ACPA began in 1947 as a way to bring Catholics in greater numbers into psychology and also to bring a Catholic perspective to bear on psychology. This article describes and analyzes the major initiatives of the ACPA: the establishment of undergraduate and graduate programs in psychology at Catholic colleges; placement services for members; and the development of psychological assessment programs for candidates for the religious life. In these ways, empirical psychological categories became part of Catholic discourses about psychological life. The ACPA voluntarily restructured itself in the late 1960s in response to a changed social environment and to a consensus that its first aim had been achieved. New issues were surfacing, making a denominational group irrelevant. The ACPA became Psychologists Interested in Religious Issues (PIRI) in 1970. PMID:20027781

Teaching Science with the Social Studies of Science for Equity  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Integrating the social studies of science into science education would make explicit the cultures of science, which have been revealed by historians, philosophers, sociologists, and feminist science scholars. These cultures include the institutions of science, the interaction of science and the society in which it is practiced, and the internal culture of science. This pedagogy may be a route to increasing equity in science, by giving women and members of other under-represented groups an appreciation of the factors causing their alienation from the enterprise and the tools to change science for social justice. In this article, I present the theoretical basis of this position, along with the implementation strategies and preliminary assessment for a sophomore level biology course based on this perspective.

Teaching social skills: evaluation of an "independence week".

This study evaluated the achievements of a training course in social skills for physically disabled young people reaching school-leaving age. The course enabled the students to acquire skills in personal care and mobility, but not all the gains were sustained on return home. That basic skills can be acquired as a result of such a short intervention shows that more attention should be paid to them in school. PMID:6236910

Family planning in a Roman Catholic community.  

PubMed

For centuries in Malta, both Catholic and civil officials have condemned abortion. In 1650, medical practitioners found guilty of administering abortive substances were sentenced to 5 years as galley oarsmen. It was illegal to counsel on, administer, take, or cultivate abortive plants. In 1786, those considered guilty of abortion included not just women who sought abortions, but violent husbands and "careless" women who spontaneously miscarried. In the late 19th century, by the end of their childbearing years, women had a mean parity of 11. Despite the 1930 Encyclical of Pope Pius XI denouncing the use of contraceptives, the Maltese population has increasingly accepted family planning, as indicated by the decreasing birth rates beginning in the 1950s (14/100 births in 1957 to 8/100 births in 1985). A survey in the late 1950s revealed that even though 82% of couples were familiar with the rhythm method, only 27% knew how to use it. So the Maltese Church set up free family planning clinics in 1962 under the direction of the Cana Movement to promote the rhythm method. By 1971, 87% of women used some form of family planning, especially rhythm method followed by withdrawal. In 1982, the government succumbed to the pressure of a women's group and established family planning clinics which offered, free-of-charge, all family planning methods, except abortion. In 1983, 91.4% of women who had just delivered planned to use some form of family planning (coitus interruptus and other sexual practices [59%], artificial contraceptive methods (26%), and rhythm method [12%]). 37.6% of people approved of artificial contraceptive methods. 31.9% approved of abortion (39% to protect mother's health and 16% to prevent a handicapped child). In the 1990s, these figures were 49% and 36% (47% and 20%), respectively. The accelerating process of secularization and increasing disagreement with the Church's teachings have caused the change in attitudes. The Roman Catholic Church in Malta is still a quasi-political force, however. It objects to the promotion and use of condoms (despite the AIDS epidemic), sterilization, and the IUD. PMID:12289091

How catholic college students think about homosexuality: the connection between authority and sexuality.  

PubMed

The researchers conducted a survey of undergraduates living in residence halls at Loyola University Chicago, a Jesuit Catholic university. The survey included 20 statements on topics currently being debated in the Church. The researchers hypothesized that those who indicated some level of agreement with the statement, Homosexuality is wrong, would show strong correlations with other statements about sexuality, while those indicating disagreement with the statement would show strong correlations with statements about discrimination. Results showed that the question of the morality of homosexuality seemed to be tied to a broader way of thinking that pits Catholic Church authority against a sort of wisdom of the world. This way of thinking is operational regardless of whether the young Catholic is accepting or not of homosexuality. The hypothesis was rejected. Attitudes toward homosexuality are tied with attitudes regarding sexuality and Church authority. Knowing gay and lesbian people seems to be the major factor that causes young Catholics to be more accepting of homosexuality. The majority of young Catholics is accepting of homosexuality and inclined to question Church teaching and Church authority.

Dutch Catholics on birth control and sexuality.  

PubMed

This is a summary of a 1969 poll among Catholics in the Netherlands as to their views on sexuality. The 1968 papal encyclical against the use of contraceptives seems to be an example of cultural lag among these Catholics. Alienation from the official Church doctrine is widespread. Contraceptive pills were acceptable to 75% of respondents and "other methods" and coitus interruptus to 60% of respondents. It was estimated that 34-50% of respondents practiced coitus interruptus, 20-23% the pill , and 25-33% "other methods." There was more cautious acceptance of sterilization and abortion. Traditional Catholics practice proscribed contraception less and approve of it less than do Catholics for whom religion has lost much of its meaning and power, but the dichotomy is not absolute. Even among faithful Catholics, almost 50% view the pill as an acceptable method of contraceptive. There was general feeling among the respondents that the Church should cease dictating to its members in personal matters. The relational rather than the procreative , aspect of sexuality was stressed. There is even acceptance of premarital intercourse, especially among young, big city Catholics. PMID:12334175

The Roman Catholic position on abortion.  

PubMed

This article presents the history and grounds of the official position of the Roman Catholic Church that abortion under any circumstances, including abortion to save the life of the mother, should be prohibited. After an introduction that deplores the lack of mercy shown to killers of abortionists while Catholic priests threatened by pro-abortion forces are not offered protection, the article traces the historic development of the Catholic abortion policy and rebuts arguments that abortion was permitted in the early Christian Church. The next section explains Catholic views on the personhood of a conceptus and refutes the contentions of Joseph Donceel that early abortion should be permitted because of uncertainty about the nature of the conceptus and the possibility of delayed animation. The fourth section of the paper debates the points raised by Susan Teft Nicholson who maintains that the Catholic position regarding abortion rests on the Church's animosity towards sexual pleasure. The paper goes on to criticize Nicholson's claims that the Roman Catholic position on abortion is inconsistent with the Church's own understanding of the Principle of Double Effect because the Church fails to allow abortion in many cases where it would be permissible under the Principle. Section 6 describes the underlying motive of the Roman Catholic Church's abortion position as an attempt to protect the innocent fetus from deliberate death and to justify the Church's application of protection from deliberate killing to those who are innocent of aggressive action. This discussion is followed by a justification of the Church's prohibition of abortion in cases of aggression, such as the aggression ascribed to a fetus when a pregnancy imperials the life of a mother. It is concluded that the US will likely legalize suicide and mercy killing as it has the killing of innocent fetuses who are probably ensouled with personhood and are not formal aggressors.

A further look at catholic fertility.  

PubMed

The purpose of this paper is to determine the extent to which suburbanization has influenced the traditional fertility differences observed between Catholics and Protestants. It is hypothesized that suburbanization has served to decrease religious differences in fertility, since in the more advanced stages of urbanism, that is, suburbanization, the Catholic population is likely to adopt the fertility patterns of the larger and more secularized society. Attention is focused on two objectives: (1) to examine selected aspects of fertility for Catholic8 and Protestants living in metropolitan areas and (2) to analyze religious differentials in fertility among residents in different parts of the metropolitan community.The data, consisting of a sample of households in six metropolitan areas in three population size classes, supported the general findings pertaining to religious differences in fertility that have been reported in the literature. Catholics had larger families, shorter average spacing between children, and longer fertility spans when compared to Protestants, even when a number of control variables were employed. Examining fertility differences between Catholics and Protestants in central city and suburban segments of large and small metropolitan areas, we found that the data indicated that marked Catholic-Protestant differences are still found in central cities. However, fertility differences between the two religious groups tended largely to disappear among suburban residents. The convergence in the fertility patterns of suburbanites is due to combined effects of higher fertility among Protestant suburban residents when compared to central city Protestants and the tendency of suburban Catholics to have fewer children than those who live in the city. The net result is convergence in suburban fertility. PMID:21318716

Different habitus: different strategies in teaching physics? Relationships between teachers' social, economic and cultural capital and strategies in teaching physics in upper secondary school  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

With environmental awareness in the societies of today, political steering documents emphasize that all education should include sustainable development. But it seems to be others competing ideals for teaching physics, or why do the physics teachers teach as they do? Physics teachers in secondary school in Sweden have generally, been focused on facts and a strong link with scientific theories and concepts. In general, the curriculum sway the teaching, a standard text book in physics is used, the teaching is organized according to the book and the teacher deals with and demonstrates typical tasks on the whiteboard and group work is common for special issues related to tasks from the textbook or elaborating. The aim with this study is to analyze why physics teachers in upper secondary school choose to teach energy as they do. Data emerging from a questionnaire focused on indicators of the teachers' cultural and economic assets, or capital, according to the work of Pierre Bourdieu's sociology. Especially his concept on life styles and habitus provide a tool for analysis. We focus on physics teachers' positions in the social space, dispositions and standpoints towards the ideal way to teach physics in upper secondary school (n = 268). Our response rate is 29 % and due to the low response rate a non response bias analysis was made. In our analysis we primarily sought for groups, with a cluster analysis based on the teaching practice, revealed common features for both what and how they teach and three different teaching types emerged. Then we reconstructed the group habitus of the teachers by analyzing dispositions and standpoints and related those to the specific polarization of sacred values, that is struggles about the natural order (doxa) in the social space of science education, which is a part of and has boundaries to dominating fields like the natural sciences and the political fields (curriculum etc.). Three teacher-groups' habituses are described and analyzed; (1) The Manager of the Traditional, (2) The Challenger for Technology and (3) The Challenger for Citizenship. By constructing the habitus of the teachers in the different groups we can explain why teachers teach as they do and thereby make a contribution to both science education research and to teaching training, whereas reflective approach which also includes the individual dispositions and representations are paramount. In our paper we elaborate the grounds and implications of these findings further.

The Core Competencies: a Roman Catholic critique.  

PubMed

This article critically examines, from the perspective of a Roman Catholic Healthcare ethicist, the second edition of the Core Competencies for Healthcare Ethics Consultation report recently published by the American Society for Humanities and Bioethics. The question is posed: can the competencies identified in the report serve as the core competencies for Roman Catholic ethical consultants and consultation services? I answer in the negative. This incongruence stems from divergent concepts of what it means to do ethics consultation, a divergence that is rooted in each perspective's very different visions of autonomy. Furthermore, because of the constitutive elements of Catholic ethics consultation, such as the Ethical and Religious Directives for Health Care Services, the tradition needed to apply those directives, and the Catholic facility's membership in the institutional Church, the competencies needed for its practice differ in kind from those identified by the report. While there are many practical points of convergence, the competencies identified by the report should not be adopted uncritically by Catholic healthcare institutions as core competencies for ethical consultation services.

Plan B and the German Catholic bishops.  

PubMed

Germany's Catholic bishops recently ruled that levonorgestrel emergency contraception (EC) was acceptable for prevention of pregnancy in the case of rape. The ruling represents a significant change in Catholic doctrine that has been opposed to most forms of birth control. In their ruling the bishops cited a lack of evidence that levonorgestrel EC acts as an abortifacient. This case serves as a reminder of the need for bioethics to be based on current scientific literature as well as articles of faith and morals. PMID:23737514

Attitudes of Catholic religious orders towards children and adults with an intellectual disability in postcolonial Ireland.

Attitudes of Catholic religious orders towards children and adults with an intellectual disability in postcolonial Ireland The purpose of this paper is to examine the intersecting roles of Catholic religious orders and psychiatrists in the development of residential care for people with an intellectual disability in Ireland during the fifty-year period after political autonomy from the UK in 1922. The context is the postcolonial development of the country and the crucial role played by the Catholic Church through several of its religious orders in developing and staffing intellectual disability services. The paper will consider the divergent positions of church and psychiatry in the foundation and contemporary position of what was originally known as the care of people with a mental handicap nursing in the 1960s. The development of this form of nursing during the mid-twentieth century can be seen as part of a wider postcolonial response to health and social care by the newly independent Irish state. The author argues that intellectual disability nursing in Ireland has been nuanced by association with the nation's struggle for self-determination from colonial oppression through adoption of a religious identity. This conflation of education and social care combined with a specific form of Catholic nursing has left an enduring legacy on the service provision to people with an intellectual disability in contemporary Ireland.

Role plays are extremely valuable tools to address different aspects of teaching social responsibility, because they allow students to "live through" complex ethical decision making dilemmas. While role plays are getting high marks from students because their entertainment value is high, their educational value depends on their closeness to students' work experience and the skills of the teacher in helping students comprehend the lessons they are meant to convey.

Deception, catholicism, and hope: understanding problems in the communication of unfavorable prognoses in traditionally-catholic countries.  

PubMed

The doctor's use of deception in appropriate circumstances has commonly been considered a necessity of the medical art. Resistance to full and frank communication is typical of many traditionally Catholic countries, and particularly of Italy, a western country where Catholicism remains particularly influential. The Catholic teaching on truth and lies, and the problem of telling the truth to a severely ill patient is discussed. It is suggested that the contemporary Catholic model of gradually telling a terminal patient the truth, which looks reasonable and feasible in theory, is rarely followed in practice, as in the majority of cases the truth is not told tout court. Problems stem from the way in which medicine is currently practiced in Italy; from the synergism between Catholicism and the medical tradition's grounded paternalism; and from the ambiguity of the term 'hope'. Catholic ethics in fact recommends that the truth must be told without destroying hope, but the Catholic meaning of 'hope' is very different from its meaning in current language. PMID:16423772

Catholic nursing sisters and brothers and racial justice in mid-20th-century America.  

PubMed

This historical article considers nursing's work for social justice in the 1960s civil rights movement through the lens of religious sisters and brothers who advocated for racial equality. The article examines Catholic nurses' work with African Americans in the mid-20th century that took place amid the prevailing social conditions of poverty and racial disempowerment, conditions that were linked to serious health consequences. Historical methodology is used within the framework of "bearing witness," a term often used in relation to the civil rights movement and one the sisters themselves employed. Two situations involving nurses in the mid-20th century are examined: the civil rights movement in Selma, Alabama, and the actions for racial justice in Chicago, Illinois. The thoughts and actions of Catholic sister and brother nurses in the mid-20th century are chronicled, including those few sister nurses who stepped outside their ordinary roles in an attempt to change an unjust system entirely.

"Hopelessly entangled in Nordic pre-suppositions": Catholic participation in the American Eugenics Society in the 1920s.

While American Catholics stand out as some of the few voices of cultural opposition to the eugenics movement in the United States, Catholics and eugenicists actively engaged in conversational exchanges during the late 1920s. In association with the Committee on Cooperation with Clergymen of the American Eugenics Society, John A. Ryan and John Montgomery Cooper engaged in a process that Sander Gilman and Nancy Leys Stepan call "recontextualization," whereby they challenged the social and scientific basis for eugenics policy initiatives while constantly urging American eugenicists to rid their movement of racial and class prejudice. In the process, they participated in a revealing debate on immigration restriction, charity, racial hierarchies, feminism, birth control, and sterilization that points to both the instances of convergence and divergence of Catholic and eugenic visions for the national community.

For-profit and Catholic: how would the ministry fare?  

PubMed

Let's begin with Catholic identity. When is something entitled to be called Catholic in any official sense? I would suggest that there are three requirements. First of all, the entity must assert and claim its identity as Catholic by some sort of public declaration. By way of counter-example, in early 2012, a major West Coast health system renamed itself Dignity Health and asserted that it is no longer Catholic. According to Dignity Health's Jan. 23 press release, it is a "not-for-profit organization, rooted in the Catholic tradition, but is not an official ministry of the Catholic Church". Secondly, this Catholic identity has to be validated by Catholic Church authority, usually the bishop of the place, but sometimes by a dicastery in Rome. There is not really a formal procedure for this. Typically, a religious congregation founds an organizational ministry with the implicit, if not explicit, consent of the bishop and has it listed in the Catholic directory of PMID:22905409

The Elements of Teaching Nonscientists: Make it Conceptual, Social, Modern, and Interactive  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Physics literacy for all students should be a top priority for every physics department. Reasons include each department's self-interest, and the health of our profession. But most importantly, as the American Association for the Adancement of Science puts it, "Without a scientifically literate population, the outlook for a better world is not promising." Because nonscientists have little need and less desire for algebra-based physics problems, these courses should be conceptual (non-algebraic) although they should certainly be numerate. Since 1976, I have developed and taught a course of this type that includes most of the major principles of physics. Its success has stemmed from (1) a conceptual approach, (2) inclusion of relevant societal topics such as energy resources, scientific methodology, pseudoscience, global warming, and technological risk, (3) modern physics topics that occupy 50instruction techniques even in (especially in!) classes of over 200. I will describe this course and conduct an "active learning" demonstration of ideas for teaching one socially relevant topic: transportation and energy efficiency.

Social cultural and situative perspective of studying emotions in teaching and learning: characteristics, challenges and opportunities  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

In this forum, I take a learning sciences perspective to examine the paper by Bellocchi, Ritchie, Tobin, Sandhu and Sandhu ( Cultural Studies of Science Education, doi: 10.1007/s11422-013-9526-3 , 2013) titled "Examining emotional climate of preservice science teacher education." I characterize their approach as a social cultural and situative perspective of studying emotions in teaching and learning. Such an approach overcomes the limitations of examining emotions as individual psychological constructs, but it also incurs other methodological challenges. I suggest an alternative approach of examining the individual's emotions, as well as their aggregates as a group measure. This approach allows us to study variations in emotional outcomes at an individual level or at a group level. I also suggest examining interplay of emotions with other aspects of learning outcomes, for example, cognitive learning outcomes. Finally, I suggest studying development of meta-emotional knowledge among teachers as another fertile area of research that could benefit the teachers in their classroom practices.

[Progressive Catholic perspectives on reproductive health and rights: the political challenge of orthodoxy  

PubMed

Catholics do not follow official Roman Catholic teachings on matters of sexuality and reproduction, including the position that contraception , even for married couples, is always evil, and that direct abortion , even to save a woman's life, is always illegal. Less well known is the extent of the Church's involvement in policy-making on these same issues. For example, it has forced the closing of in vitro fertilization (IVF) services from Poland to Uruguay. As the Church has never declared any of the dominant views, over time, regarding when a fetus becomes a person as a doctrine or dogma, there is no theological justification for the absolute condemnation of abortion. Neither is there a theory on "just abortion" similar to the "just war" that allows killing under certain circumstances. The enormous gap between the Church's positions and the views of worshippers has led Catholics to shape a workable and honorable sexual and reproductive ethic of their own The Church could make a positive contribution if it chose to accompany people on this quest rather than to raise roadblocks.

Claiming Rosa Parks: conservative Catholic bids for 'rights' in contemporary Latin America.  

PubMed

When the Rosa Parks Prize was awarded to a conservative Argentine senator in 2009 for her outspoken opposition to contraception, sterilisation and abortion, it was clear that something odd was happening. This paper documents the appropriation of 'human rights' discourses by conservative Catholics in Latin America, where the recent success of reproductive and sexual rights social movements has generated a significant backlash. It specifically traces an effort by Catholic legal scholars to justify what they term 'a distinctively Latin American approach to human rights' while ignoring decades of human rights activism by others. Opponents of reproductive and sexual rights are deploying rights-talk selectively and strategically, it is argued, using this as secular cover to advance pro-life and pro-family policies.

Problems faced with legislating for IVF technology in a Roman Catholic country.  

PubMed

Malta traditionally enjoys a Roman Catholic Society, with the official religion of the country being cited in the second article of the constitution. Recently the government proposed to legislate to regulate human reproductive technology, in particular In Vitro Fertilization, which has been practiced for over two decades without controlling legislation. A Parliamentary Committee for social affairs was set up to study the situation inviting most stakeholders. The arguments gravitated mostly on issues of the status of the embryo and the media played a considerable role. At the end of the discussion the Archbishop made a statement which pointed out that IVF involves destruction of embryos and the process stopped. This article examines what caused the deterioration of the process and points favourably towards a way forward within the context of a Catholic Country. PMID:19763882

Catholic 'natural law' and reproductive ethics.  

PubMed

Catholic natural law has had a long and evolving interest in bioethics. Thomas Aquinas left natural law a legacy of great flexibility in evaluating goods within a whole life. He also bequeathed to the Church the basis for an abolutism on sexual issues. Modern reproductive medicine and a deeper understanding of human freedom have reopened these issues. The Vatican has developed new, holistic arguments to proscribe reproductive interventions, but critics remain unconvinced that marital relationships and goods have been adequately evaluated. The resolution of this debate will require further experience and reflection. PMID:1402434

How Many “Friends” Do You Need? Teaching Students How to Network Using Social Media

How does Catholic hospital sponsorship affect services provided?  

PubMed

Catholic hospitals maintain a significant presence in delivering hospital services in the United States, but little is known about the ways they differ from other ownership forms in similar market environments. This paper analyzes characteristics of Catholic, other private nonprofit, and investor-owned hospitals in metropolitan areas of the United States to identify the extent to which Catholic hospitals differ from other ownership types on three dimensions of mission-driven identity--access, stigmatized, and compassionate care services. Based on 1993 data, Catholic hospitals offered more compassionate care services than other private nonprofit hospitals, and more compassionate care and stigmatized services than investor-owned hospitals, controlling for four market and six organizational characteristics. The results may help Catholic hospitals differentiate their services and help justify their tax-exempt status. PMID:10047770

Can Web 2.0 and Social Software Help Transform How We Measure Quality in Teaching, Learning, and Research?  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

This paper focuses on the issue of quality in teaching, learning, and research. In the second section, the paper looks at the different ways technology is being used to learn and at the changing expectations of learners leading to pressures for transformations in both pedagogy and institutional structures. The third section proposes a new rhizomatic model of learning. The following section "Quality Frameworks: Perception and Reality" suggests that traditional measures of the quality of teaching, learning, and research have been hijacked by the commodification of education. This is explored further in Section "The Commodification of Education and Its Impact on How We Measure Quality". Section "How will Web 2.0 and Social Software Change our Understandings and Measurement of Quality?" looks at how Web 2.0 and social software can provide opportunities of new ways of measuring the quality of learning through embedding quality measures within the processes of teaching and learning and knowledge development. Sections "What is the Purpose of Traditional Assessment Measures?" and "Critiques of Assessment Processes" provide a critique of traditional assessment processes and suggest the need to move from the assessment of learning to assessment for learning. Section "Personal Learning Environments and Assessment for Learning Through Authentic Learning Tasks" looks at how personal learning environment can be used to support authentic learning and assessment for learning. The conclusion suggests that the development of new quality processes will require fundamental rethinking of the purpose and role of universities.

Condoms, HIV and the Roman Catholic Church.  

PubMed

For decades, the Roman Catholic Church opposed use of condoms to prevent spread of sexually transmitted infections (STI) because of their contraceptive effect. In 2009, Pope Benedict XVI said that widespread use of condoms could worsen the situation, a position rejected as 'unscientific'. Recently, however the Pontiff stated that because the Church considers acts of prostitution and homosexuality to be gravely immoral and disordered, in such specific cases use of a condom might become an initial step in the direction of a moralization leading to an assumption of responsibility and a new awareness of the meaning of sexuality. In doing so, he reaffirmed his belief that condoms cannot solve the problem of STI spread, stressing the Church's position that modern societies no longer see sexuality as an 'expression of love, but only as a sort of drug that people administer to themselves'. The new Papal position has been widely applauded, but made conservative Catholics unhappy. A dialogue with the Church now seems possible: Does concentrating on condoms hinder the effectiveness of other strategies? What are the respective roles of condoms and other approaches to prevent infection spread? Does a special situation exist in Africa requiring specific and focused interventions? PMID:21507723
