Kansas Catholic has the goods as usual on the profession of vows of this traditional Benedictine order in Kansas City. You will see lots of friends as you go through the photos of this profession and Mass, held at Old St. Patrick’s Oratory. It looks as different from a Call to Action Mass as I can imagine. Part one is here, with links to the rest.
Up is down, black is white. The Constitution of the United States is just so much Kleenex.
The Supreme Court has held, with only two dissents (Thomas, and Scalia in part), that federal officials can indefinitely hold inmates considered “sexually dangerous” after their prison terms are complete. Of course!! Some federal official considers them dangerous.
Even if the Constitution gave them this power, which of course it doesn’t, I don’t remember Congress ever passing a law that made it a crime to be considered “sexually dangerous”. Usually, one has to commit an act that is against the law, then he faces a trial by jury where he is considered innocent until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt, then he is sentenced, then he completes his sentence, then he is released.
But no more. Indefinite detention is A-OK.
As long as he is “sexually dangerous.”
Boy, I can’t wait until “religiously dangerous” people are locked up indefinitely!
