The U.S. Bishops to Biden: “This is not a fact.”

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

“This call to arms by the Catholic bishops implies, if need be, civil disobedience”

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.

The entire encounter was posted on YouTube and can be viewed here. Fair warning: it is ... More

Our Civic Duty

I encourage everyone who ever happens upon this website (it is safe to assume you have some interest in Catholicism and/or voting) to be sure and read James Taranto’s interview piece with Timothy Cardinal Dolan today in the Wall Street Journal. The cardinal points to a real challenge we lay Catholics have to take very seriously. From the Taranto piece: American Catholics have in fact become ... More

Showing Gratitude for Leadership in the Battle for Religious Freedom

“Thank you.” Two very simple words that can mean so much. So in this fight for religious freedom, how about we show some gratitude? There are some names below of men and women who are do some overdue thanks. There are others — this is far from an all-inclusive list — but here is a start. And the gals at the end, do say: We notice the women who oppose the HHS Mandate, unlike much of... More

Cardinal Dolan: White House Lectured My USCCB Staff On How to Interpret Catholic Teaching!

Cardinal Timothy Dolan sent a letter to his brother bishops earlier this week where he revealed a shocking conversation that recently took place at a meeting between White House and USCCB staff: At a recent meeting between staff of the bishops’ conference and the White House staff, our staff members asked directly whether the broader concerns of religious freedom—that is, revisiting the stra...
