The Columbus Dispatch reports that a Catholic High School fired a physical education teacher last month after it became public knowledge that she is a lesbian who lives with her partner, in direct violation of Church teachings. Sadly, the teacher, Carla Hale, reacted by suing the Diocese of Columbus under the city’s anti-discrimination law, which does not provide an exemption for religious organ... More
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
Uwe and Hannelore Romeike were a couple living in Germany who homeschooled their six children. There’s only one problem: in Germany, homeschooling has been against the law since the Nazis were in power.
After facing intimidation, abuse, and repeated fines (to the tune of $10,000 USD) the Romeikes chose to move to the United States to ask asylum and homeschool their children in peace. In 20... More

In the courtroom, you are asked to tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth.
In politics, our elected officials stick to a different standard. No one is really surprised by this. A politician describes the country’s current situation and their own views in the best possible light. They put a silver lining on all bad news. They oversell their own plan as the only real way to ... More
I understand there’s another major speech tonight by the President of the United States, making the best case he can why he should be reelected. Sisyphean task, that.
It will, however, be followed by what I’m most interested in: Cardinal Dolan’s closing prayer. THAT. could be the highlight of the conventions season if the Dems continue their anti-God, anti-Jerusalem, anti-life, a... More
