America Needs the Obama They Voted For, Not the One They Got

What America needs in a president right now is an inspirational civil-rights figure, peace leader and health-care champion. Why is it that we don’t have that? The headlines of the past summer are tragic, but they are also centered around issues that play to the strengths voters were looking for when they chose Barack Obama. [...]

Bishops Slam “Unprecedented and Extreme” Attack on Religious Freedom

Gotta love the bishops these days. As you already know, President Obama just signed an executive order banning anyone who contracts with the federal government from discriminating based on “sexual orientation” or “gender identity.” The U.S. Bishops’ response to King Barack’s latest edict from on high was swift and decisive.  And it didn’t mince words [...]
