Did Pope Francis Support Civil Unions?

Well, no. Actually he didn’t do anything of the kind. Of course, the liberal media will never let the truth get in the way of a good story. Here’s what CNN wrote yesterday: Pope Francis reaffirmed the Catholic Church’s opposition to gay marriage on Wednesday, but suggested in a newspaper interview that it could support [...]

Divorce and Remarriage: Somebody has some Explaining to Do

In the old, much beloved, I Love Lucy TV show, whenever Lucy messed something up, or seemed to have messed something up, her husband Ricky would tell her, his voice rising with frustration: “Lucy, you’ve got some explaining to do!” A lot of people today take this same attitude toward the Catholic Church, in relation [...]

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 [...]

Why do a majority of Catholics think God is wrong about marriage?

Here’s a fun fact for the start of your work week: 53% of Americans now support redefining marriage along gender neutral lines.

What began as a straightforward attempt to protect religious freedom and conscience rights ended with yet another defeat when Governor Jan Brewer vetoed SB 1062. But this defeat reveals a great deal about the kind of battle we [...]

True Colors

With the successful campaign to smear and intimidate the supporters of Arizona Senate Bill 1062 into silence, we have seen the true colors of modern liberalism: it is a totalitarian movement which seeks to destroy religious expression. This is bad enough, but sadly, this is only a symptom of the much larger problem of radical [...]

On Contraception: What is the Sense of the Faithful?

What is the sense of the faithful regarding the morality of contraception?  For that matter, what is meant by the expression “the sense of the faithful”? These questions came up for me earlier today, when I came across a blog post by Bishop Robert Lynch of St. Petersburg, Florida, which had been linked from RealClearReligion. [...]

Polygamy: The Next Marriage Fight

The push to legalize “gay marriage” is about far more than equality. It’s about dismantling the institution of marriage altogether. Marriage only makes sense as a societal construct when it is defined as the union of one man and one woman. Marriage is valuable to society insofar as it creates familial stability and brings about [...]
