Hey, did you hear the one about Pamela Anderson playing the Blessed Virgin Mary?…

Well apparently it’s really funny, you see, because the frequent Playmate and porn flick star is going to play the virginal mother of Christ in Canadian TV’s “A Russell Peters Christmas,” hosted by extra-super-clever comedian Russell Peters. You see, because bashing Christianity is funny! It’s hip! It’s fresh! It’s daring! And hey, Christians don’t ... More

Knee-jerk Anti-Christianity Harms a School District.

Now this is just silly. A school district in California has decided it is a better idea to reject $45,000 in fundraised money than to allow a few bricks with inoffensive verses from the Bible to be included. At this point I don’t really think it matters if it is true anti-Christianity, or just knee-jerk anti-Christianity, because it’s really just silly. I’m quite certain that the... More

A fifth person was also wounded. “This lunatic went up and down the coach looking for Christians,” said Coptic Orthodox Bishop Morco... More

University of Kentucky shows itself closed to full scientific inquiry.

I'll bet Galileo, a devout Catholic, would disagreed vehemently with the University of Kentucky's position. Martin Gaskell, Christian, applied for the position of director of the new student observatory at the University of Kentucky. One member of the search committee described him as “breathtakingly above the other applicants.” Yet he didn’t get the job. He has sued, c... More

Urgent: Papal plea to save Asia Bibi, and how we can help

UPDATE – TAKE ACTION NOW AT THE CATHOLICVOTE ACTION CENTER. Today Pope Benedict made his own the international outcry for the Muslim government in Pakistan to spare the life of Asia Bibi: Asia Bibi is a Pakistani Christian who, following a discussion with some Muslim colleagues, was accused by the latter of having pronounced offensive words against the Prophet Mohammed and denounced to...
