Welcome to The Porch! A forum for liberally educated Catholic women and men to venture into the great arena of culture and theology, Church and State. Here you will find daily commentary and discussions that touch upon theology, politics, history, books, movies, and just about anything else pertaining to culture and Catholicism. But don’t let this introduction fool you. This blog is really just an excuse for us to start writing again now that our professors aren’t demanding term papers from us. Please enjoy.
