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 [...]

12 Must-Read Quotes From Bishop Paprocki’s Same-Sex Marriage Exorcism

  In a much-publicized event on Wednesday that coincided with Governor Pat Quinn signing gay marriage into law in Illinois, Bishop Thomas Paprocki of Springfield led the faithful in “Prayers of Supplication and Exorcism in Reparation for the Sin of Same-Sex Marriage.” In his homily at the service, Bishop Paprocki demonstrated once again why he [...]

Tom Ridge accuses social conservatives of ‘tyranny’

Whenever I attack pro-abortion Catholic Democrats, I get labeled a ‘cheerleader’ for the Republican Party. But the truth is that I save my greatest ammunition for pro-abortion Republicans, especially those who also claim to be Catholic. Thankfully the number of pro-abortion Catholic Republicans in office is shrinking quickly. (Not getting better on the Democratic side, though.) [...]

Quinnipac Releases Poll on Catholic Attitudes Toward Abortion and Same Sex Marriage

Earlier this month, Quinnipac University released a poll on Catholic attitudes on a range of issues, including abortion and same sex marriage. To their credit, Quinnipac separately reported results for Catholics who attend Mass weekly and Catholics who attend Mass less often. Often times, survey research firm lump consistent Mass attendees with infrequent Mass attendees. This often creates the misleading impression [...]

Bishop Paprocki: Saying the Rosary for Gay Marriage is Blasphemy

  Bishop Thomas Paprocki of Springfield, IL has already demonstrated his ability to stand tall against hostile advocates of gay marriage. Maybe it’s a certain toughness bred from his experience as a hockey goalie.  More likely it’s a rock-solid commitment, born out of love for Christ and his Church, to defend the souls he is [...]

On marriage fight, Chris Christie throws in the towl

The lawless New Jersey Supreme Court last week refused Governor Christie’s request for a stay (or temporary stop) on their ruling which said that same-sex “marriages” had to become legal in the Garden State. Today, Christie gave up. He withdrew his appeal. He said that the state’s high court “had left no ambiguity” as to [...]
