What Pope Francis Just Did for Religious Freedom in America

In Pope Francis’ visit to America, religious freedom was a key theme in his public addresses from the White House to Independence Hall in Philadelphia. But even more significantly, it was the center of Pope Francis’ unscheduled meetings: With the Little Sisters of the Poor, and with Kim Davis, the clerk who went to jail […]

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 […]

Wednesday the President, Sunday the Pope

When an American President invites someone to the White House, or even says his name in a public address, more than style points are at stake. We can argue about his legacy, but someone who understood this well and used it to good effect was President George W. Bush, who made it his purpose to […]

The President’s Plot to Exploit the Pope

Get the truth on Obamacare

There’s no sugarcoating this. It’s a scandal pure and simple. Today President Obama delivered a major speech touting the success of Obamacare. And guess where he delivered this important speech… …the national conference of the Catholic Health Association. It’s no secret that the Catholic Health Association has long done the bidding of the Obama Administration on […]

The President’s “Noble” Lie

Here’s something that should surprise no one: for the sake of political expediency, Barack Obama lied (that really is the word for it) about his opposition to same-sex marriage. The President’s famous “evolution” on the marriage question was really just a coming-out party (so to speak) for beliefs he had held for at least a decade. […]

An estimated crowd of 1.6 million people gathered in Paris on January 11 to stand in solidarity and in condemnation of the violent attack on the offices of Charlie Hebdo by Islamic Jihadists just four days earlier.  Another two million rallied in other cities around Paris on January 10 and 11, including 300,000 in Lyons […]
