Exclusive: Planned Parenthood funding Astroturf pro-abortion lobbying in DC?

Denise Hunnell spotted this posting in the jobs section of Craigslist-Washington DC this morning: **Stop the Assault on Women’s Reproductive Rights!**$335-$535/wk (Dupont) Typos aside, this is shocking that the pro-abortion machine has become so desperate for real flesh-and-bone supporters and activists that they are willing to pay people to do what pro-lifers volunteer to do. The fact th... More

Pro-aborts in Chicago slash tires, threaten more violence against pro-lifers

I remember hearing some background chatter about pro-aborts protesting a recent tribute held in Chicago in honor of Joe Scheidler, one of the founders of pro-life activism in this country. Some pro-abortion activists, however, have completely crossed the line into physical intimidation and acts of violence. This message was posted on the Chicago Independent Media Center website by someone using th... More


Archbishop Wenski’s words made true by gay writer who viciously attacks him for defending reality of marriage

Some of the most vicious attacks I’ve read against the Church are normally written by people who understand the Church the least. Brandon K Thorp’s screed against Archbishop Thomas Wenski in the Broward-Palm Beach New Times is a sad example of this phenomenon. Here’s the quote from Abp Wenski’s weekend editorial in the Sun Sentinel (“Traditional Marriage Predates All ... More

Diocese of Albany sponsors Friday “Way of the Cross in the Company of Clowns”

It’s like the land of OZ up there in Albany. Or some sort of strange, hippie time-warp. This from The Evangelist, the diocesan newspaper of Albany: And for good measure, the clowns are having another “Way of the Cross” reunion next Friday at St Stephen’s Church. What is it about clowns and liberal liturgical abusers?! UPDATE: An AmP reader wrote me, “The sad part is ... More


On Cuomo’s Communion, Everyone Chimes In

Platt/Getty It’s been a bit surprising to see how much traction my father’s recent comments on Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s (in)eligibility to receive Communion have received. But, as my father notes, we probably should have expected this: A political wag once observed that the fastest way to start a ruckus on Capitol Hill is to point out what the Constitution actually says. In the Chur... More

Dissent: Catholic Parish in Minneapolis to host Gay & Lesbian fundraiser with “same-sex marriage activist” pastor

Please prayerfully support them as they pursue a pastoral solution.

Pelosi calls for scorched-earth war against Bishops, Catholics, GOP, Pro-Life

I like Pelosi for this reason: she makes the fight we are in absolutely unambiguous. In a strategy call with pro-abort bloggers yesterday, she rallied her troops to oppose pro-life bills that have been introduced in the House of Representatives: Pelosi acknowledged that Dems could not stop Republicans from passing their anti-abortion agenda through the House. But she said it was crucial that p... More

Kickback: President Obama appoints dissenting nun who helped pass Obamacare to Faith-Based Council

“If you want to gain favor from President Obama, be a bad catholic.” That personal observation gained even more credibility last week when President Obama announced the new makeup of his Council for Faith-Based Partnerships (ph/t: Badger Catholic). The only Catholic he appointed to this council is Sister Marlene Weisenbeck, former president of the Leadership Conference of Women Religio... More
