Banned in Boston?

All is not well in Beantown. The South Boston St. Patrick’s Day parade is the latest target in the LGBT bullying campaign to destroy freedom of expression. The Allied War Veterans of South Boston have sponsored a parade since 1901 celebrating the Feast of St. Patrick and the British Evacuation of Boston during the Revolutionary [...]

Is the ghetto all we have left? Thoughts on the showdown in Arizona

I’ll be honest: It was difficult to watch the goings-on in the state of Arizona this past week. On second thought, “difficult” probably isn’t the right word for it. In fact, I know it isn’t. There really isn’t a single term that can describe how disgusted I felt when I learned that corporate interests, the mainstream [...]

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 [...]

Religious freedom is a constitutional right not a “tax exempt status”

I don’t mean to pick on my friend Matt Lewis, who wrote a splendid article called When ‘leave us alone’ became ‘bake us a cake!” He’s talking about proposed legislation in Arizona which would allow bakers and florists the ability to refuse to participate in same-sex ‘marriage’ ceremonies. Lewis noted: The reason conservative Christians are [...]

Vatican II: A Great Gift to the Church

  I’m not a Vatican II scholar (I know, you’re shocked) but I’ve always had the notion that the Second Vatican Council was, all in all, a good thing. And I still do, but I don’t articulate why it was a good thing nearly as well as some other people do. I missed this article by George [...]

Priest Criticized For Refusing Last Rites to Homosexual Patient

The Washington Post continues to go after priests who uphold Catholic sexual teaching. Last week, it was the smear of Fr. John DeCelles for not renewing his contract with the Boy Scouts of America following their decision to allow openly gay scouts into their membership. Now it’s an attack on Fr. Brian Coelho, a chaplain [...]

Sandra Fluke Wants to Write Your Laws

Many in the Democratic Party–including those who occupy the big, white house at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue–believe that a person’s right to have someone else pay for birth control is so fundamental that it’s worth shutting down the Little Sisters of the Poor. Next time someone laments the rise of conservative “culture warriors” or trots out some lame [...]

It Takes One to Know One

Michael Sean Winters has a post today where he doubles down on his claim that attorneys for the Little Sisters of the Poor are telling “a lie” when they say Obamacare forces the Sisters to sign a “permission slip” for abortion pill and contraception coverage in their health plan. In his response Winters tells two [...]
