Is ‘Owning Our Faith’ Disowning Our Faith?

The poetically provocative title to this post refers to “Owning Our Faith,” a group that started earlier this year with the mission of “sharing life stories of LGBT persons in the Catholic Church,” according to its Facebook page. The group’s web site features a main video, plus accompanying in-depth videos, of the subjects of these […]

The Supreme Court and Modern Marriage

Obviously the Supreme Court’s ruling on same-sex marriage provides a lot of material for discussion.  I am still digesting it (not having read the dissents yet), but one thing stands out to me from my reading of Justice Kennedy’s majority opinion.  The Court’s argument here, and some of the past precedents to which it refers, […]

COURT’S IMPOSING OF GAY MARRIAGE: THEN AND NOW

I have been here before. The last weekend of June, 2015 was for pro-family advocates across the nation what Columbus Day Weekend, 2008 was for me. That was the weekend our State Supreme Court imposed same-sex marriage on Connecticut, despite Family Institute of Connecticut (FIC) having defeated it every year at the state Capitol and […]

People I Don’t Hate

I am Catholic, and I don’t hate people. My beliefs sometimes entail disagreeing with them, but that shouldn’t be confused with “hate.” Let me introduce you to some people that I don’t hate. Polygamists I don’t hate people who have multiple wives … I don’t hate them even though I am against polygamy. I believe […]

‘The Briefcase': Catholic and Trans Couples Face Decisions

Tonight is the season finale of CBS’ reality show “The Briefcase,” which pairs two families in financial difficulty, gives each one a briefcase containing $101,000 — but neither family knows at first that there’s another family involved — and then the families must decide whether to keep all of the money or give all or […]

Dear SCOTUS: Your Concupiscence Is Showing

“Sin makes you stupid” is probably the most artless—but truthful–way to say it. On two consecutive days, some of the most important leaders in our land have displayed the most egregiously clear manifestations of wounded human nature I could ever imagine. The Supreme Court of the United States, charged with the task of upholding the […]

Laudato Si and Humanae Vitae

Some commentators have suggested that there is a tension or contradiction between the position Pope Francis takes in Laudato Si, on the one hand, and the Church’s traditional teaching against the use of artificial contraception, on the other.  After all, the pope is concerned to protect the environment.  But, say the critics, overpopulation stresses the […]

Great Articles Provide Answers About Marriage and “LGBT”

As we wait for the Supreme Court to make its decision on same-sex marriage, several articles this week offered great arguments about marriage and gender issues. It’s a good thing, too. They are needed. Even a gay atheist thinks so. That’s how Matthew Parris described himself (ht, RC2) in The Spectator: “Even as a (gay) […]

40 Days for Marriage

  The Supreme Court is deliberating right now whether or not there is a constitutional right to same-sex ‘marriage.’ This ruling could impact children, the family, and the future of America for generations to come. The court is expected to announce its ruling by the last day of June, which is precisely 40 days from […]
