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...

Marriage up for Re-Election in Ohio in 2014

Fortunately for us, the founding fathers did not give God term limits or make religious liberty stand for re-election every two years. Nevertheless, same-sex marriage advocates in Ohio are campaigning for signatures to put marriage on the ballot once again even though the question was settled decisively in 2004, by a margin of 62% in favor to 38% against the traditional and longstanding definition...

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

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

Why Do Liberals Love to Hate Catholic Schools?

A former Catholic school teacher, Christa Dias, is suing the Archdiocese of Cincinnati for firing her after she artificially inseminated herself to conceive a child out of wedlock, which is a violation of the teachings of the Church and of her employment contract. Meanwhile, Carla Hale continues her battle against the Diocese of Columbus after being dismissed for her making her lesbian “spousal... 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
