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 [...]

Obama Administration Pressuring Justice Sotomayor to Allow Contraception Mandate

On Tuesday, Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor issued an order preventing the government from enforcing the Obamacare contraceptive mandate on the Little Sisters of the Poor. Sotomayor’s decision to delay the contraceptive portion of the law was joined by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit, which also issued an emergency [...]

True and False Witness on the Abortion-Pill Mandate

The Supreme Court gave a temporary injunction to the Little Sisters of the Poor to protect them from Obamacare’s abortion-pill mandate.  The only one who seems unhappy about it is Michael Sean Winters of the National Catholic Reporter. Winters accuses the Little Sisters’ lawyer of “bearing false witness” by saying that Obamacare forces the Sisters [...]

A 12 Days of Christmas Year in Review

What’s the best answer to Christmas sentimentality? The Christmas season liturgy. In the days that follow Christmas, the Church brings us the slaughter of innocents, the first martyr, and more. Christmas isn’t just sugarplum fairies and Santa Claus after all. It is good that the Church does this, because if you compare each day from [...]
