The Supreme Court Chases Rainbows

For all the pomp and protests, the Supreme Court’s decisions today in Hollingsworth v. Perry and United States v. Windsor have not changed anything. The supreme majesty of the Universe and the orbits of the celestial spheres are unmoved from their appointed courses. The sun and the moon still shine. The grass is green and the sea is blue. The laws of physics remain inviolate. God’s covenants w... More

Justice and the Domestic Church

On the occasion of Father’s Day, we should consider that fully one quarter of households in the United States have no father present. On a per-capita basis, one in three children does not have his or her biological father present. Liberals will shrug at this unprecedented divergence from all past experience and say that it doesn’t matter, but it doesn’t take a genius to see that the conseque... More

Christ Didn’t Tell the Woman at the Well: “Go and Get Plan B”

After relentless and vociferous criticism from feminist organizations, Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sibelius has abandoned her opposition to the over-the-counter sale to minors of the so-called “Plan B” contraception pill which can also be used to cause the abortion of a fertilized egg. This cowardly retreat by Secretary Sibelius is hardly surprising, but it is nevertheless rev... More

Delaware and Rhode Island Substitute Human Folly for God’s Ageless Wisdom

In the last few days, Delaware and Rhode Island have joined the ultra-liberal bloc of mainly northeastern states that have redefined marriage. The institution of marriage has stood for thousands of years without any need of improvement, but it is now fashionable to complain that such reforms are long overdue. Accordingly, these developments were greeted with predictable pompous expressions of vind... More

Bishop Campbell Speaks About the Hale Case

In an exclusive interview published today in the Columbus Dispatch, Bishop Frederick Campbell broke his patient silence on what was until now a purely internal human resources matter regarding the dismissal of Carla Hale. She was a teacher at a Catholic high school in the Diocese of Columbus until her public and open admission that she considers her lesbian partner a “spouse” in contradic... More

Gay Marriage Activist: “It’s a no-brainer that the institution of marriage should not exist.”

In a statement that should come as a shock to exactly nobody who understands the real agenda behind gay marriage, lesbian author, journalist and gay rights activist Masha Gessen lays out the real plan behind the push for “marriage equality” (emphasis added): “It’s a no-brainer that (homosexual activists) should have the right to marry, but I also think equally that it’s a no-bra...

How Equal is Equal Enough?

Marriage “equality” is the defining civil rights issue of our time, or so we are told. The proponents of same-sex marriage have explicitly compared their struggle to ending segregation and miscegenation laws. That is to say, marriage is a fundamental right which all people should be able to enjoy regardless of their sexual orientation. However, in the rush to overturn an institution which pred... More

Is the Push to Normalize Homosexual Relationships Leading to State-Sanctioned Incest and Pedophilia?

Alfred Kinsey, the famous (or infamous) sexologist, estimated that 10% of the American population is homosexual. A 2011 Gallup poll found that Americans believe that as much as 25% of the population is homosexual. According to the findings (emphasis added): There is little reliable evidence about what percentage of the U.S. population is in reality gay or lesbian, due to few representative survey... More

Freedom, Responsibility, and Marriage

Last night as my wife and I were getting dinner ready, our oldest daughter, a sophomore in high school, dropped the question: “So, what do you guys think of gay marriage?” I tried to downplay the shock and delight I felt that she actually initiated such a substantive discussion with us,  and decided to see what she was thinking. I deployed the old technique of answering a question wi... More

Marriage: What’s Love Got to Do with It?

The Supreme Court of the United States is hearing oral arguments in Hollingsworth v. Perry today in what promises to be a historic case no matter the outcome. Meanwhile, supporters of marriage are marching on D.C. and Catholics across the nation are praying for religious freedom. A few weeks ago, we heard the story of the woman brought before Jesus for the crime of adultery. In it we have a remind... More
