Dr. Ben Carson: The Good, the Bad, the Ugly

Dr. Ben Carson: The Good, the Bad, the Ugly

With the crowded Republican field, one would assume that someone will surely stand out as the pro-life candidate. After all, most if not all of them have spoken out against abortion. Yet, what appears to be pro-life on the surface doesn’t necessarily make the cut once the details come to light. Dr. Ben Carson: The Good One […]

Selling Baby Body Parts: What a Difference a Video Makes

For the past few days the Center for Medical Progress has released a total of five videos, spotlighting the horrific happenings at Planned Parenthood (PP). The documented fact that unborn babies have been experimented on, their parts used for everything from vaccines to taste-testing soda and cosmetics, comes as no surprise to those deep in the trenches […]

SCOTUS and Rainbows: How Do We Respond?

A professional woman posted what seemed to many readers (according to the huge number of likes, shares, etc.) to be well-reasoned thoughts about why Christians should now officially stop “trying to impose their religious ideas of sin on what is truly a basic civil rights issue” after the Supreme Court issued their same-sex marriage ruling. […]

Contemporary Culture Wars: Is History Repeating?

Lately, there is a lot of talk within Christian circles how to live the Faith in the midst of a morally-decaying (and increasingly hostile) Western culture.[i] I would like to join the fray and add some of my own observations. There is an old saying, “Every analogy limps” and another that says, “History does not […]

A New Stripping of the Altars?

A New Stripping of the Altars?

After the recent discovery by five Supreme Court justices of a constitutional right to same-sex marriage, the self-described forces of love, tolerance, and acceptance have taken their victory and turned to punish their perceived enemies. An article on the TIME magazine website by New York Times columnist Mark Oppenheimer has called for the end of tax […]

Taking a Stand at the Crossroads

The recent United States Supreme Court decision declaring by man’s authority that two people of the same sex have the right to marry in all 50 states is a landmark moment for Catholics called to take a stand. After Roe v. Wade, there is no more compelling issue in the divine order of things about […]

Is Marriage a Lifestyle or Something More?

Is Marriage a Lifestyle or Something More?

The Supreme Court’s recent rendering on same-sex marriage continues to be met with mixed emotions. Many feel this was the correct decision since those who practice a same-sex lifestyle should be entitled to the same rights as heterosexuals. Others feel that the institution of marriage was dealt, yet another, critical blow. Regardless of one’s position, […]

Christianity “Found Difficult and Left Untried”

Christianity “Found Difficult and Left Untried”

Of course, I mean that Catholicism was not tried; plenty of Catholics were tried, and found guilty. My point is that the world did not tire of the church’s ideal, but of its reality. Monasteries were impugned not for the chastity of monks, but for the unchastity of monks. Christianity was unpopular not because of […]

Gay “Marriage”: Autonomy, Yes! God, No!

Gay “Marriage”: Autonomy, Yes! God, No!

First, a little background. When we look back to our country’s founding, we take pride in the reasons for its formation; a “bad king” and his parliament that exercised their power improperly within the American Colonies. Because of these acts of omission and commission from the isolation of 3,000 miles away from London, anger began to develop. […]

Whom Will You Serve?

If somehow Catholics didn’t realize it before Friday, I hope the realization has dawned. We have a choice to make. If you’re a Catholic who feels like celebrating this insane Supreme Court decision to impose same-sex “marriage” on the nation, may I strongly suggest that you reconsider your cheers. I saw a lot of that […]

Pope Francis Has Single-Handedly Destroyed Catholicism AGAIN

Pope Francis Has Single-Handedly Destroyed Catholicism AGAIN

I’ve previously written about how Pope Francis had single-handedly destroyed Catholicism, and now it’s happened AGAIN. I’m sure you’ve heard about Pope Francis’ recent encyclical Laudato Si’, in which the Holy Father commands that every Catholic, upon pain of excommunication, MUST believe that climate change/global warming is a scientific reality, caused entirely by Catholics, and that only the Democrats […]

Same-Sex Marriage: An Open Letter to Justice Kennedy

Dear Justice Kennedy: #SCOTUS Dr. Paul Kengor, professor of political science, says, “Most people who support same-sex ‘marriage,’ including many gays, do so for benevolent reasons. They believe that it is an issue of ‘equality’ and a new ‘freedom for a group of people.’” They are not haters, nor crazy, and they have no desire […]

Young Pro-Life Leaders Gather at Camp Joshua, Nevada

“So the people shouted, and the trumpets were blown. As soon as the people heard the sound of the trumpets, they raised a great shout, and the wall fell down flat…” (Joshua 6:20 NRSVCE) The theme is Christian and the biblical wall of Jericho is the metaphor referring to:  “Building a culture of life and bringing down the […]

Radical Homosexuals Want to Have Their ‘Ideological Cake’ and Make You Eat it Too

This past week, we witnessed the unseemly pandering of several Republicans to the radical homosexual movement.  Each stumbled over the other to present his credentials. Florida Senator Marco Rubio—in a display of complete incoherence—stated on Face the Nation: “I don’t believe that your sexual preferences are a choice for a vast and enormous majority of […]

Translating Hillary Clinton’s Doublespeak

In case you’ve been recently living under a rock or fasting from the Internet, former U.S. Secretary of State and former First Lady Hillary Clinton is running for President. Not surprisingly, she’s already launched into the typical political doublespeak common to Democratic politicians who wish to trample religious liberty and deny human rights to unborn […]

“Gay” is the New Anti-Freedom: What I’ve Learned From Indiana’s RFRA

Here’s what I’ve learned from the massive kerfluffle over Indiana’s RFRA: 1. Indiana is simply an intolerable (pun intended) place to do business, so mayors and governors from other states have declared Hoosier country off-limits. Bakers, florists, photographers, and restaurateurs in Indiana have apparently had super-secret meetings in which they have solemnly vowed they will […]
