An Attack on Religious Freedom

According to the Weekly Standard‘s Terry Eastland, the bill introduced by Senate Democrats to effectively overturn the Hobby Lobby verdict in fact sweeps far more widely and presents a serious threat to freedom of conscience.  He makes two key points. In the fist place, the new bill simply says that employers may not deny coverage [...]

Wendy Davis Suffers Major Defeat in War Against Texas Babies

  Good news from the Lone Star State. A federal appeals court in Texas has upheld legislation that bans most abortions after 20 weeks in the state. In its ruling, the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals rejected the lower court’s reasoning that the law posed an “undue burden” on the rights of Texas women seeking [...]

Who’s Afraid of Political Parties?

With Congressional election season upon us, we’re about to be reminded repeatedly that no political party platform conforms across the board to Catholic teaching. This is absolutely true, but I confess I judge you if you feel the need to say this, for three reasons. 1) To dispense with a pet peeve: I don’t know [...]

Is the ghetto all we have left? Thoughts on the showdown in Arizona

I’ll be honest: It was difficult to watch the goings-on in the state of Arizona this past week. On second thought, “difficult” probably isn’t the right word for it. In fact, I know it isn’t.

President Bill Clinton is traveling to Kentucky later this month to raise money for Democrat Alison Grimes’ campaign against Mitch McConnell, R-KY. So fellow Kentucky Republican Senator Rand Paul (who supports McConnell) is condemning the Democratic Party for using a sexual “predator” as a cash cow for their political candidates. Here’s Rand Paul on Meet [...]

Sandra Fluke Wants to Write Your Laws

Many in the Democratic Party–including those who occupy the big, white house at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue–believe that a person’s right to have someone else pay for birth control is so fundamental that it’s worth shutting down the Little Sisters of the Poor. Next time someone laments the rise of conservative “culture warriors” or trots out some lame [...]

Two Words That Catholics Need To Stop Using…Like Now

If you’re ever looking to play a rousing game of Bait the Redhead, may I suggest tacking one of two little adjectives onto the word “Catholic?” Those adjectives? Conservative and liberal. This is a long-standing pet peeve of mine (circa 2002), but all the brouhaha this past year over Pope Francis (“He’s sticking it to [...]
