Catholic Hardware Store Sued for Refusing to Sell Gay Extension Cord

The Catholic owners of “Joe’s Hardware” in Atchison, Kansas are defending themselves against a federal lawsuit that accuses them of violating equal protection laws because they refused to sell a same-sex extension cord to a customer last month. The plaintiff in the lawsuit is Flip Rosco, a poodle trainer from Greenwich Village.  During a press […]

Patriotism and Piety: As American as the Fourth of July

Some people want to minimize as much as possible the role of religion in America’s public life.  To do this, however, they have to do violence to America’s historical identity.  America’s government has no religious identity: hence the First Amendment prohibition on an “establishment of religion,” as well as the Constitution’s prohibition on religious tests […]

On Marriage, Catholics Stand with the American Founders

This Fourth of July, American Catholics might feel that they no longer fit so comfortably within America.  After all, Catholics hold that marriage is a union between a man and a woman, but the Supreme Court has just ruled that it is unconstitutional for this view to be embedded in the law.  Nevertheless, Catholics should […]
