All Souls: A Personal Prayer for Departed Artists

Yesterday, Nov. 1, actor and United States Senator Fred Thompson passed away from lymphoma at the age of 73. I had the inestimable pleasure of sitting next to him during a press luncheon several years ago.

The Myth of the Pregnancy Rewind

As anyone who watches crime drama knows, the number one problem that any murderer has is how to dispose of the body once the grisly deed is done. Lakes, dumps and crawlspaces are favorite places murderers use to stash the remains of their victims. Even though they maintain that abortion is not murder, abortionists end […]

David Daleiden: The Man Who May Take Down an Abortion Empire

From Bush to Fiorina to Trump — How Do Catholics Feel?

For The Tidings, the newspaper of the Archdiocese of Los Angeles, I polled some Catholics of my acquaintance, both in L.A. and beyond, on their feelings about the GOP candidates, in the wake of the Sept. 16 presidential debates at the Reagan Presidential Library in Simi Valley, California.

No, U.S. News, Francis Did Not Echo Obama

Gary Emerling at U.S. News & World Report thinks he spotted something. “Toward the beginning of his address,” to the U.S. Congress Sept. 24 “Francis alluded to religious extremism, noting that ‘no religion is immune from it’.” The Pope Francis Quote: “Our world is increasingly a place of violent conflict, hatred and brutal atrocities, committed even in […]
