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

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

A Majority of One

Andrew Jackson famously never said, “One man with courage makes a majority.” Yesterday, the new Attorney General of Virginia, Mark Herring, announced that he has decided he is no longer bound to defend the Virginia Constitution which defines marriage as the union of one man and one woman. This is not courage at all, but pure hubris. After only just being declared the winner in a recount by the... More

Catholic Students Support Gay Marriage in Seattle

While most of us are getting ready for Christmas, a battle is ongoing in Seattle over the dismissal of Mark Zmuda, the Eastside Catholic School vice principal and coach who married his same-sex partner in violation of school policy and in breach of his contract. The official statement from Sister Mary Tracey, president of Eastside Catholic, indicates that Zmuda’s departure was a mutual de... More

Which Side of History?

In a gentler age, we would not have news reports covering an internal family squabble between the daughters of former Vice President Cheney, but such are the times that even the definition of what a family is has become politicized. In the airing of her family grievances, Mary Cheney uses all the clichés that are now standard for supporters of same-sex marriage. The most galling is the claim that... More

For God or For Country?

Perhaps you have heard about the story of Senior Master Sergeant Phillip Monk, USAF? Then again, with the media’s attention dominated by Syria, maybe you haven’t. Here’s his story: Monk, who is a devout evangelical Christian, said he met with the young instructor and told him that he was fighting for him. “He was really concerned,” he said. “He said he felt like he was on an island –...

Is Pope Francis Catholic?

This is an absurd rhetorical question, but it bears asking, because according to Jon O’Brien, president of the hilariously named “Catholics for Choice,” Pope Francis is not nearly Catholic enough (or too Catholic, depending on how you look at it). Writing in the Washington Post, he provides a list of complaints which, in his view, the Catholic Church badly needs to address. Like Martin Luthe... More

Did Pope Francis Say Homosexual Behavior Is OK?

Short Answer: No Pope Francis made some impromptu remarks for reporters while returning from World Youth Day, and now headlines across the mainstream media blare that he made some kind of stunning reversal of Catholic teaching. Earlier in the same interview, he half-jokingly said, “I think like a Jesuit.” True to the stereotype of the Society of Jesus, Pope Francis has a very logical mind, so ... More

Responsible Parenting is Such a Drag

This week, the online magazine Slate ran a disturbing photo-journal on a group of parents who are on the forefront of the culture wars by not merely allowing, but actively encouraging boys as young as three years-old to dress like girls and parade down a catwalk like a children’s version of “Priscilla, Queen of the Desert.” The article talks about how great it is that there’s n...

Five Arguments for Gay Marriage

Emboldened and energized by Justice Anthony Kennedy’s scathing and intellectually dishonest ad hominem attacks in his ruling overturning the Defense of Marriage Act at the federal level, advocates of same-sex marriage are campaigning to put the definition of marriage up to a vote in Ohio and there are also efforts under way in Hawaii, Illinois, New Jersey, Oregon, and Pennsylvania both at the ba...
