Polygamy: The Next Marriage Fight

The push to legalize “gay marriage” is about far more than equality. It’s about dismantling the institution of marriage altogether. Marriage only makes sense as a societal construct when it is defined as the union of one man and one woman. Marriage is valuable to society insofar as it creates familial stability and brings about [...]

No Discussion, Please. We Want Diversity.

Oh that ignorant Catholic Church. Once again, it has a different view from those who preach “diversity.”   The Catholic Church in Poland has come under attack for apparently challenging “gender workshops,” a type of sex-ed class in the schools that present children with “alternatives” to permanent monogamous heterosexual relations. According to an article in Our Sunday Visitor, [...]

The United Nations uses images of Mother Teresa to promote its anti-Catholic agenda

Remember the U.N.’s Free and Equal campaign? I wrote about it back in July of 2013 when Desmond Tutu, one of the initiative’s spokespersons, proudly proclaimed that he would rather go to hell than serve a God that doesn’t let homosexuals have “basic human rights.” Free and Equal claims to advance the cause of non-discrimination [...]

Saving Social Security and Marriage–and the World!

During his State of the Union address, President Obama made the obligatory reference to “equal pay for equal work” as part of a larger public debate which has been going on for some time now. There have been numerous articles in liberal and conservative publications, countless white papers, and an endless parade of political pundits [...]

A Majority of One

Andrew Jackson famously never said, “One man with courage makes a majority.” Yesterday, the new Attorney General of Virginia, Mark Herring, announced that he has decided he is no longer bound to defend the Virginia Constitution which defines marriage as the union of one man and one woman. This is not courage at all, but [...]

Why do we support marriage as a union of one man and one woman?

It’s not about romance. And it’s not about the desires of adults. Speaking before lawmakers in Indiana yesterday, Ryan Anderson eloquently stated why the state has an interest in marriage that goes beyond our feelings and emotions: “Whenever a child is born, a mother will always be close by. That’s a fact of biology. The [...]

Why are young people pro-life, but also favor marriage re-definition?

My friend John Burger asked that very question to marriage defender Ryan Anderson. Here’s what he said: I think it’s largely that they haven’t had the argument made to them. Forty years ago, you wouldn’t have had as high numbers among the younger generation identifying as pro-life. Forty years ago, they were telling us that pro-lifers [...]

A 12 Days of Christmas Year in Review

What’s the best answer to Christmas sentimentality? The Christmas season liturgy. In the days that follow Christmas, the Church brings us the slaughter of innocents, the first martyr, and more. Christmas isn’t just sugarplum fairies and Santa Claus after all. It is good that the Church does this, because if you compare each day from [...]

Catholic Students Support Gay Marriage in Seattle

While most of us are getting ready for Christmas, a battle is ongoing in Seattle over the dismissal of Mark Zmuda, the Eastside Catholic School vice principal and coach who married his same-sex partner in violation of school policy and in breach of his contract. The official statement from Sister Mary Tracey, president of Eastside Catholic, indicates [...]
