Why do a majority of Catholics think God is wrong about marriage?

Here’s a fun fact for the start of your work week: 53% of Americans now support redefining marriage along gender neutral lines. While that might not be a “fun” or even newsworthy statistic, you might be surprised to learn that only ten short years ago – seems like only yesterday doesn’t it? – only 3 [...]

Arizona: Losing Our Religion

This week we got our first real preview of what a post-gay marriage America could look like. What began as a straightforward attempt to protect religious freedom and conscience rights ended with yet another defeat when Governor Jan Brewer vetoed SB 1062. But this defeat reveals a great deal about the kind of battle we [...]

True Colors

With the successful campaign to smear and intimidate the supporters of Arizona Senate Bill 1062 into silence, we have seen the true colors of modern liberalism: it is a totalitarian movement which seeks to destroy religious expression. This is bad enough, but sadly, this is only a symptom of the much larger problem of radical [...]

On Contraception: What is the Sense of the Faithful?

What is the sense of the faithful regarding the morality of contraception?  For that matter, what is meant by the expression “the sense of the faithful”? These questions came up for me earlier today, when I came across a blog post by Bishop Robert Lynch of St. Petersburg, Florida, which had been linked from RealClearReligion. [...]

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 [...]
