“For the first time in history we have actual objects from the time of David, which can be related to monuments described in the Bible.”

“This is the first time that archaeologists uncovered a fortified city in Judah from the time of King David,” Garfinkel said in a press release. “Even in Jerusalem we do not have a clear fortified city from his period.

Editor’s note: This is bad news for Muslims, who deny the existence of any ancient Hebrew presence in the Holy Land.

This is also bad news for the secularists and atheists, since it bolsters the biblical accounts.

“Jesus Christ Himself reveals to us what it is to be a man,” Fr. Richards said. “It is about taking the one life that God has given us and give it away. When men are invited to die for others, they put others’ needs above their own. To be like Christ, and like all great men, will cost men their very lives.”

“There is a difference in the way men and women were created,” he remarked. “Men are not called to be women and vice versa. We are different – not better, but different – and men are called to be fully men. This needs to be dealt with up front because it’s a problem – in the Catholic Church and in the world itself.”
