Where the Louisiana Senate Candidates Stand on the Issues

The CatholicVote.org Research Team has been hard at work this election season to ensure that Catholic voters across the country are well-informed when they reach the polls. For our friends in Louisiana, we have pored through the public statements and positions of Bill Cassidy, Rob Maness and Mary Landrieu on issues that matter to Catholics. We believe [...]

A culture of “men without chests?”

October 11, 2014 saw a new call in the fight to reclaim control over our children’s education and to defeat the dumbed-down, relativist invasion of education content.  At the annual St. Charles Catholic Men’s Conference in Carthagena, Ohio, a packed house of over 100 men listened as Heidi Huber of Ohioans Against Common Core briefed [...]

At Synod14, the Pope Has the Last Word

      The just-concluded Synod on the Family at the Vatican has proven to be as contentious and fraught with drama as any large family gathering, complete with squabbles, loose talk and finger-pointing (mostly from the Synod’s chattiest and most self-aggrandizing attendee, Germany’s Cardinal Kasper) not to mention questionable reporting, some sensible opining and a [...]

Who is Trying to Rig Synod14?

I ask the question in my headline because of reports like this from Edward Pentin in the National  Catholic  Register: “More and more there is talk in Rome that this synod is being engineered by groups intent on steering the Church in a heterodox direction, and increasingly evidence is coming to light that points to it. The first [...]

What the Synod Relatio Didn’t Say (And How It Didn’t Say It)

Once again, the Vatican has tripped over the English language and landed in a heap of trouble. Late in 2013, I posted a pair of articles at Breitbart.com dealing with issues surrounding the Vatican’s official English-language translation of Pope Francis’ first encyclical, Evangelii Gaudium (“The Joy of the Gospel”). Click here and here for them, [...]

Marriage, Doctrine, and Lived Experience

There is a lot of discussion going on about the document produced at this stage in connection with the synod on the family.  The document suggests that we need to attend to the lived experience of couples who are in situations that the Church has taught involve sin–that is, who are in unions that the [...]
