Professor Ken Howell teaches (or rather, taught) a class on Catholicism at the University of Illinois.

Since I viewed the first trailer, I’ve been saying that the Twilight series was another step in the de-Christianization of our culture…but I had no idea how bad really it was! I’m with this reviewer….I WAS TOO KIND BEFORE!
Tremendous review of the Twilight series by Jasmine Baucham.
Several people that I respected –and some that I don’t hold in especially high regard –had loved the books, and told me to take another look, and to keep going: I wasn’t being fair. Now, I had read Twilight and New Moon and viewed both of the films before I spoke … Read the rest...read more
