No More Hashtags. Start Acting.

If only the 275 Nigerian Christian girls were abducted by plane! 29 countries would be looking for the schoolgirls instead of the handful of countries talking about the Boko Haram abduction. Remember, the 29 countries organized as a global coalition to look for Malaysian Airliner in the bottom of the Indian Ocean? If only Boko [...]

Five Questions with Samuel Gregg

In the heady days of the 1960′s and the election of John F. Kennedy, Catholics finally felt a sense of belonging to the American experiment, while the Democratic Party offered a comfortable political home. Fast-forward 50 years, and that same party no longer offers Catholics the easy ideological fit, with the likes of abortion-on-demand, the [...]

Should Catholic youth groups be ethnically segregated?

My father, a first generation Mexican-American, is fond of saying, “America doesn’t just have an immigration problem – it has an assimilation problem.”  As a public school teachers, my mom and dad worked with many undocumented students and saw up close how curricula steeped in multiculturalism and political correctness rob so many students of even [...]

Paul Krugman, Can Kicker

Paul Krugman thinks that, when it comes to the country’s fiscal problems—$16 ½ trillion in debt, four consecutive $1 trillion deficits, etc.—America should kick the can down the road. “It’s the responsible thing to do,” he says. Our creditors aren’t exactly beating down the doors, interest rates are low (so borrowing is cheap), and besides, [...]

A Pro-Life Opportunity: Please Support Joe Pascale

It’s an argument you’ve probably heard before. “Pro-lifers only care about babies before they’re born. Then they’re left to fend for themselves.” This is, of course, entirely nonsense. The pro-life movement is filled with resources and people that are a great comfort and aid to women with crisis pregnancies, both before and after birth. And [...]

“Crony Contraception,” or Why the HHS Mandate is Even Worse Than You Thought

I just came across this interesting column by David Catron at The American Spectator, in which the author connects the dots between the Administration’s [...]
