 | 

The college experience -- and the Catholic college experience especially -- can influence a young man's decision toward considering a priestly vocation, according to a study issued in early July by Boston College.

George Clooney slams story of in-law rift over religion

George Clooney, whose love life has been well chronicled through the years on red carpets and in paparazzi shots, rarely addresses details about his personal relationships.

He isn't one to kiss and tell. He hasn't even officially acknowledged that he's engaged to glamorous international human rights lawyer Amal Alamuddin, 36, as has been reported since April.

Clooney, 53, is refuting a Daily Mail story that said Baria Alamuddin, his future mother-in-law, is against the impending marriage for religious reasons.
