Liberty, Lies, and Statistics

It’s easy to lie with statistics, but to completely invent data and then publish it in a peer-reviewed journal takes a lot more effort–and some serious chutzpah. Nevertheless, that’s exactly what Michael LaCour appears to have done in a study which purported to show that people more readily changed their position on same-sex marriage if […]

Hundreds Gather to Support Archbishop Cordileone in San Francisco

If you’re wondering why you haven’t heard many media reports lately about the ongoing campaign being waged by a few disgruntled Catholics against Archbishop Cordileone, it’s probably because that campaign is failing spectacularly. Much ado was made a few weeks ago when several prominent Bay Area Catholics threw a tantrum on the pages of the […]

The Yanks Are Coming: Over 800 American Priests Sign Statement on Marriage

When several hundred priests in England and Wales, in response to Pope Francis’ invitation to be forthright and honest, signed a statement urging the Synod on the Family to uphold the Church’s teaching on marriage, many Catholics on these shores expressed the hope that the American clergy would follow suit. Well, they have. Over 800 […]

Justices Kennedy and Ginsburg Argue Against Same-Sex Marriage

On Tuesday, the Supreme Court heard oral arguments in Obergefell v. Hodges, which will go down in history as either the next Roe v. Wade or the next Dred Scott, depending on how it is decided and which side you are on–and it may surprise the advocates of same-sex marriage that there are in fact […]

‘Civil’ Marriage Does Not Exist

If we Catholics ever hope to convince supporters of same-sex “marriage” that it isn’t real, we first have to convince ourselves that “civil marriage” is just as unreal. Sure, the State thinks it controls something that it likes to call “civil marriage,” as though it is really a thing. But the Catholic view of marriage […]

Charlotte Bishop To LGBT-Advocate Nun Gramick: You’re Not Speaking in My Diocese

Charlotte Bishop Peter Jugis has cancelled a speaking event by Sister Jennine Gramick that was scheduled to take place at one of the parishes in his diocese. Sister Gramick is the founder of New Ways Ministry, self-described as a “gay-positive ministry that advocates for justice for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender Catholics, and for reconciliation […]

Is Friendship the Greatest Love?

“No one has greater love than this, to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.”  (John 15:13) This famous phrase from Jesus has gotten much attention from the “new homophiles” who collectively contribute to the blog www.spiritualfriendship.org (see note below). The assertion seems to be that friendship, in contrast to spousal love, is the “greatest” kind […]

Dishonest Journalism Update

Yesterday I posted a piece noting that CBS Cleveland had put forward a misleading headline and first sentence in an article on an Indiana pizza place.  The headline (yesterday) said: “Indiana Pizza Shop: We Won’t Serve Gays.”  The first sentence read: “An Indiana pizza shop may be the first to publicly say it will not […]

[VIDEO] Hillary Clinton: Marriage is Sacred Bond Between Man and Woman

No, it’s not an April Fool’s joke. This is real. Over at Slate, David Weigel’s “Flashback: When Democrats Swore They Would Never Back Gay Marriage” features a video of three Senators who promised the American people they understood marriage as a sacred bond between one man and one woman. Well, they lied. Here’s proof:   […]
