The ignored controversy at CPAC

The annual Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) is the nation’s largest conservative conference. Every spring, thousands of political conservatives descend on Washington to listen to conservative luminaries and prospective Presidential candidates. The roster of participating groups never fails to generate a significant amount of controversy within the conservative movement. In years past, the inclusion of [...]

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. [...]

Not Science Fiction: FDA Evaluating 3-Parent Embryo Creation

In James S.A. Corey’s 2011 sci-fi novel Leviathan Wakes, James Holden, one of the book’s two main characters, finds himself being questioned by Martian authorities about his non-traditional upbringing on Earth: “Your file says you were the only child of a family co-op,” Lopez said, acting as though they’d never stopped talking about Holden’s past.

Women Deserve Better than Planned Parenthood on Valentine’s Day

On Monday, Planned Parenthood CEO Cecile Richards tweeted out this Vine video and used the hashtag #WhatWomenNeed: #WhatWomenNeed for Valentine’s Day: http://t.co/6oQu28YZMa — Cecile Richards (@CecileRichards) February 10, 2014 Happy Valentine’s Day, ladies.

In a recent post I discussed what I think are some of the problems with Notre Dame professor Gary Gutting’s invitation to Pope Francis to rethink the Church’s teaching on abortion.  That post got rather long, so I promised to take up the rest of the argument in a second post.  Herewith, the fulfillment of [...]

The Silenced Children

Every life is precious, and deserves the chance to live. This is the clear and concise belief the pro-life movement, and everyone who participates in the pro-life movement. In the pro-life movement, we constantly hear stories of girls who “aren’t ready to have a baby”, and women who “don’t have the resources to raise a [...]

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 Notre Dame Professor Urges the Pope to “Rethink Abortion”

Writing at the website of the New York Times, Gary Gutting, a philosophy professor from the University of Notre Dame, invites Pope Francis to “rethink” the Church’s position on the question of abortion.  Needless to say, the rethinking is supposed to end not in a clearer and more persuasive presentation of the Church’s traditional teaching, [...]

The Invisible War

In the year 1973, the Cold War was at its height. The United States and the Soviet Union possessed enough nuclear weapons to destroy the earth several times over. Fortunately, Nixon’s policy of détente had brought us back from the brink of mutually assured destruction. Nevertheless, a new war had just begun in that year [...]
