Catholic at Heart: Pierce Brosnan’s Imperfect Yet Saving Faith

It would be a beautiful world if cradle Catholics remained faithful all their lives, and if converts (because, in this scenario, there wouldn’t be any reverts, like me) came to the Faith all unspotted and pure, with no nagging personal issues mucking up the place. A beautiful world, yes, but not this world. Let’s take the case of “Remington Steele” and James Bond star Pier... More

Who Needs Fathers? 20 Famous Partnerships

While expecting our second child, my wife and I went to the hospital for an orientation to make sure we didn’t try to go to the cardiovascular operating room instead of labor and delivery on the Big Day. The nurses and staff were all wonderful, but one thing really grated on our nerves. Everyone we met kept referring to me as my wife’s “partner.” Each time, I immediately corrected them, ... 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

Why is Racism Different?

A few weeks ago, conservatives rushed to support Brendan Eich, so if we are consistent, why shouldn’t we defend Donald Sterling too? One could argue that even if the First Amendment does not apply, it is morally objectionable for a person to be deprived of his livelihood for his beliefs–even if they are demonstrably wrong. After all, there are many people who–notwithstanding th... More

“He saw the city and wept over it”

In American electoral politics, we take for granted that liberals will win in the cities and conservatives will win in the country with the suburbs up for grabs. However, this is increasingly an untenable position as inner suburbs have moved to the left over the past few decades. In the latter half of the 20th century, middle-class families fled the cities for the safety and stability of the subur... More

Did Pope Francis Support Civil Unions?

Well, no. Actually he didn’t do anything of the kind. Of course, the liberal media will never let the truth get in the way of a good story. Here’s what CNN wrote yesterday: Pope Francis reaffirmed the Catholic Church’s opposition to gay marriage on Wednesday, but suggested in a newspaper interview that it could support some types of civil unions. The Pope reiterated the church... More

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 War. The veterans group won a Supreme Court battle more than 20 year... More

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 individualism run amok. In a way, the gay pride flag is a fitting emblem... More

Spiritual Environmentalism: Protecting the Marriage Ecosystem

What can a tree frog teach us about marriage? Ideological environmentalism would seem like an unlikely place to look for inspiration for social conservatives. It is an understatement to say that groups like the Sierra Club and the World Wildlife Fund do not share our reverence for the sacredness of human life, but instead view humanity as the enemy. The difference between conservation and environm... More

Polygamy: The Next Marriage Fight

The push to legalize “gay marriage” is about far more than equality. It’s about dismantling the institution of marriage altogether. Marriage only makes sense as a societal construct when it is defined as the union of one man and one woman. Marriage is valuable to society insofar as it creates familial stability and brings about the conception and education of new citizens. It be... More
