Exposed: Gay activist millionaire bankrolled Catholic astroturf group

Kevin Jones of the Catholic News Agency has done us a great service by revealing that Catholics United received almost its entire operating budget in 2012 from the millionaire gay activist Tim Gill: The Catholics United Education Fund, a Democrat-leaning advocacy group which began criticizing Church opposition to same-sex “marriage” in 2012, received most of [...]

US Embassy to Vatican: Celebrate LGBT Day With Us!

Under the Obama administration, however, it has at best done nothing and at worst it actively harms our relationship with the Holy See. Today for instance the embassy staff took a break from posting selfies and asking [...]

Who is responsible for Brendan Eich’s firing? They all are. We all are.

I guess I should feel encouraged that some part of America is still uncomfortable with what happened to Brendan Eich last week.

The event terrified and needlessly traumatized thousands of innocent children who witnessed it take place. [...]

The Choice 2014 [Updated]

Catholics face an important choice in 2014 and in the years ahead. Some of the comments and reactions to my post earlier this week on Pope Francis’s decision not to renew Cardinal Burke’s membership on the Congregation for Bishops revealed a disturbing trend to me, namely, the extent to which many Catholics have adopted an apprehensive [...]
