Five Ways Gay Marriage Affects You Personally–Even If You’re Not Gay or Married

One of the favorite arguments of libertarians and liberals alike when it comes to the debate over redefining the institution of marriage is that when two consenting adults pledge their lives to each other it does not affect anyone else. The assertion that government recognition of same-sex marriage for someone else does not diminish your marriage is repeated incessantly, but repetition of a lie do... More

After Hobby Lobby, What Next?

If you believe the liberal media, the Supreme Court decision in Burwell v. Hobby Lobby Stores, Inc. is the most sweeping and revolutionary case since Brown v. Board of Education of Topeka. Of course they’re right, but not for the reasons they suppose. Nothing has changed, but then everything has changed. In the particulars, this was a very narrow ruling, but the legal landscape has been transfo... More

The Culture of Life is a Culture of Motherhood

Let’s talk about diapers: a newborn baby will need 2,500 diapers in the first year, and many more after that, but state-run programs like WIC and SNAP don’t address even basic needs like diapers. The fight to end abortion grabs headlines, but the press pays little attention to the mundane needs of the single mother who has beaten the odds and carried her crisis pregnancy to term. Saving the li... More

President Ecclesiastes?

Buried amidst the wall-to-wall coverage of pressing national issues like Michael Sam’s coming out party and Chris Christie’s traffic jam, the Obama Administration has announced that it will be delaying and weakening the employer mandate once again. Politico notes that this will be a boon to unscrupulous small business owners who now have more time to scale back their workers’ hours without ... More

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 on cable news trying to diagnose the problems of women in the...

Everyone’s Three Favorite Things: ObamaCare, Taxes, and Abortion

Next week is the March for Life which is especially meaningful this year, as there are several cases before the Supreme Court during this session that touch on essential questions about the sanctity of life and the relationship of citizens towards our government. The HHS mandate which attempts to force religious organizations as well as private citizens to purchase contraceptives, sterilization, a... More

What if Costco Ran Healthcare?

As people have finally managed to penetrate the riddle, wrapped in a mystery, inside an enigma that is the federal health insurance exchange login screen, they are discovering the truth behind the absurd promises that ObamaCare would slow the rise of the oceans and lead to world peace. In fact, instead of making healthcare affordable for hard-working Americans, premiums, deductibles, copays, and f... More

Old, Good News

Usually, when Huffington Post, The New York Times, and The Daily Beast are giddy with excitement over something the Pope said about abortion, gay-marriage, or contraception, there’s either been a serious misunderstanding or the eschaton is near. For those who haven’t yet heard, America Magazine (and several other Jesuit publications worldwide) has just published a lengthy interview of Pope Fra... More

ObamaCare’s Hidden Pregnancy Tax

Pregnant? You’d Better Start Saving In the law, what is left unsaid is as important as what is said. Nowhere is this more true than in the thousands of pages of the joyless actuarial jargon, bureaucratic alphabet soup, and onslaught of new taxes that make up the so-called “Affordable Care Act,” more commonly known as ObamaCare. In particular, the omissions of ObamaCare have resulted in a... More

Is Pope Francis Catholic?

This is an absurd rhetorical question, but it bears asking, because according to Jon O’Brien, president of the hilariously named “Catholics for Choice,” Pope Francis is not nearly Catholic enough (or too Catholic, depending on how you look at it). Writing in the Washington Post, he provides a list of complaints which, in his view, the Catholic Church badly needs to address. Like Martin Luthe... More
