The Catholic hierarchy is, sad to say, shamefully deficient in the theology of their own church. During the recent election campaign, some bishops embarrassed themselves by their loathsome meddling in partisan politics. They presented their opinions as the "teaching of the church," in opposition to both a growing consensus among theologians and the developing belief of the faithful. Unremembered, apparently, are the failures of their predecessors who spoke out against the women's suffrage amendment using the same fantastic arguments of danger to children's welfare and peril to family structure and harmony.

COLLEGE PARK -  Maryland's coaches have personnel meetings every Wednesday night during which they discuss the depth chart and any potential changes. Offensive coordinator Mike Locksley reiterated Wednesday that C.J. Brown is the Terps' starting quarterback and that Caleb Rowe is his backup. Locksley was asked Wednesday whether he would consider using Rowe, who has a stronger arm, as a change-of-pace quarterback to Brown, a talented runner who has struggled at times throwing the ball this season.

In his exciting new book, "Rebirth of the Corporation," Harvard Professor D. Quinn Mills boldly proposes a true, sweeping alternative to hierarchy: "the cluster organization." Mills argues for "dramatic change in the structure of the organization." Where hierarchy remains, he flatly states, "There cannot be any rethinking of the fundamentals of management."Enter the cluster. Mills defines it as "a group of people drawn from different disciplines who work together on a semipermanent basis."

The news media has focused considerable attention on the recent interview with Pope Francis ("Pope Francis faults Catholic Church's focus on gay marriage, abortion," Sept. 19). I have now read the entire published interview, and it is truly remarkable. The interview reveals the pope as a highly intellectual and cultured man who is also authentically humble. He clearly believes that the church needs to be involved with all mankind. Some of his remarks seem to be directed at the hierarchy and clergy, but I wonder how the pope's vision for the church will play out in the local Baltimore Catholic community.

I must respond to Edward McCarey McDonnell ("Archbishop Lori should accept Md. Catholics' tradition of religious toleration and diversity," March 25). When he refers to Maryland Catholics, by implication, he has declared himself to be speaking for me. He isn't. His closing statement is quite telling when referring to theU.S. Conference of Catholic Bishopsas "the American hierarchy" when he states: "they don't always represent our values. " Mr. McDonnell displays a fundamental misunderstanding of dogma and hierarchy of the Roman Catholic Church.

When Pope John Paul II lands in Denver today, Baltimore Archbishop William H. Keeler, a private man more comfortable working behind the scenes, will suddenly become the country's most visible Roman Catholic leader.On the tarmac, Archbishop Keeler, president of the National Conference of Catholic Bishops, will be the first to greet the pope. And only after Baltimore's archbishop has welcomed Pope John Paul will the president of the United States step forward for an introduction.For the next four days, Arch bishop Keeler will be flying in the president's helicopter, introducing the pope to throngs of the Catholic faithful gathered in Denver for World Youth Day, meeting with Hillary Rodham Clinton, celebrating Masses with the pope and representing American bishops at each event he attends.

As Suzann Pettersen huddled inside the scorer's trailer behind the 18th green at Bulle Rock early yesterday evening, her swing coach stood outside grinning from ear to ear, accepting handshakes and slaps on the back for his pupil's first LPGA major victory. Nothing could dampen Gary Gilchrist's joy. Not even the spectacular flop by a big-name former student for whom he still has warm feelings and still wishes well. Nearly seven hours earlier, Michelle Wie left the site of the McDonald's LPGA Championship with far less fanfare and surrounded by far fewer smiles.

As usual, the latest dust up over the Obama administration's decision to require church-affiliated employers to offer health-care insurance that covers contraceptives at no charge has generated more heat than light ("Obama's 'accommodation' wins support in birth control debate," Feb. 11). Both sides in this tussle have made mean-spirited, divisive and unfair, if not outright untrue, claims about the other side and its supporters. Moreover, some recent letters decrying the policy are really missing the point.

The Orioles' hierarchy is starting to shake out, with one decision-maker officially walking away and another remaining in the same role. On Saturday afternoon, the Orioles announced that president of baseball operations Andy MacPhail will not seek an extension and is leaving the club after four-plus years in charge. "On behalf of the Orioles organization, I thank Andy for his service to the club over the last four and a half seasons," Orioles principal owner Peter Angelos said in a statement.

The woman with gray hair piled high on her head perched on a stool in front of rows of college seniors scribbling notes. The students had many questions: How could recent graduates adhere to their values as they took their first jobs? Do leaders of other cities struggle with ethics as much as Baltimore's politicians do? And did Councilwoman Helen L. Holton believe she could restore faith in city government when charges were still pending against her in court? Two weeks after pleading no contest to a campaign finance violation, Holton addressed Loyola University students as part of a panel discussion, "Restoring Public Trust in City Hall.

TEHRAN, Iran -- Iran watchers sought to make sense yesterday of a spat between the conservative speaker of parliament and the country's hard-line president over a budgetary issue that found Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei issuing a rare but opaque opinion. The incident was the latest sign of discord with the Islamic Republic's byzantine ruling system, which combines elements of a democratically elected republic with a theocracy headed by Shiite Muslim clerics, with Khamenei over both. Parliament Speaker Gholam Ali Haddad-Adel read yesterday from the text of the supreme leader's opinion, which the lawmaker said backed his position in a dispute with President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

THE OTHER DAY a law student at the University of Maryland bemoaned the fact that, though his required one-semester course on the Constitution was almost over, the professor had yet to say a thing about the First Amendment.The occasion was a symposium on hate speech -- specifically what to do about the skinheads in Hampden. For the moment that particular group of young punks has receded to the inside pages of the local papers, having been denied a KennethLassonpermit to march through the predominantly white community and declare it a "nigger-free zone."

It has been more than 25 years since United States troops pulled out of Vietnam and ended one of the most turbulent and divisive chapters in American history, but the war to end all unpopular wars still has a huge impact on the American psyche -- and, apparently, the Canadian psyche, too.Former Toronto Blue Jays manager Tim Johnson was fired on Wednesday, in part because he frequently used Vietnam war references around his players and coaches that intimated...

Washington -- While the political world is focusing on next year's presidential contest, one Maryland congressman is spending his time on 435 races that might have as much bearing on the future of the nation. It's Chris Van Hollen's job as chairman of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee to ensure that his party maintains control of Congress into the next administration. Van Hollen hopes to deepen the party's inroads in suburban districts, where voters in recent elections have been going Republican, and where big-city rates can make television advertising prohibitively expensive.
