Ignatius Press lives up to its name

In an official statement, Ignatius Press stated, “It is with regret that we do this; Miss Church possesses a great gift from God, and in the past she has used her talent often to offer praise and glory to our Lord.” While Ignatius Press praised the sacred music Charlotte had done in the past, they said, “We cannot stand by a young woman who uses her stature in the media to mock the Eucharist, slander the Holy Father, and denigrate the vows of religious women. Therefore, our catalogs and website will immediately withdraw all compact discs, cassette tapes, DVDs and VHS tapes that feature Miss Church. Please join us in praying for this troubled young woman.”

I'm sorry to hear about Charlotte Church's recent actions; read more about it here.

But this is one of the many reasons I love Ignatius Press -- this outfit knows what it stands for.

Biretta tip to NCR(egister).

I am saddened by Charlotte Church's actions and will pray for her.

I will also be submitting this intersting article to FARK.com so that heathens and Christians alike to read about it. It really is news...I am surprised I did not see this yet.
