Senator Schumer calls for abortion-on-demand roll call vote today

By Tom Quiner | May 11, 2022

One of the most deceitfully-named bills in Senate history is up for a vote again today. Senate majority leader Chuck Schumer is bringing the ‘Women’s Health Protection Act’ to the Senate floor for another vote, despite failing in a February 28th vote. Schumer is forcing the vote in reaction to the leaked Supreme Court draft document which suggests that SCOTUS may overturn Roe v Wade. He wants to put members…

Schools don’t teach this during Black History Month

By Tom Quiner | February 14, 2022

By TOM QUINER Poverty is largely a function of family structure, as you can see in the graphic above. You can see the inverse relationship between the out-of-wedlock birth rate and median income. In other words, poverty isn’t driven by racism; it’s driven by family structure. Marriage is the ultimate path to healthier, happier families, which is why Pulse Life Advocates has created The Holy Family Project, which launches March…

Is Western Civilization Worth Saving?

By Tom Quiner | February 10, 2022

Saint Mother Teresa posed a provocative question: “… if a mother can kill her own unborn baby, what is left of Western civilization to save?” There’s no question that Western civilization is under attack. ‘Western Civ’ is a decreasingly required course in institutions of higher learning. And when it is taught, curriculum tends to focus on its negatives rather than its staggering achievements. The progressive Left calls for a dismantling…

By Tom Quiner | February 7, 2022

Dear Quiner’s Diner Readers: I’ve published several thousand blogposts over the past decade. My output dried up on my personal blog here at Quiner’s Diner in recent years.

Top ten religious movies for Lent

By Tom Quiner | February 26, 2021

By TOM QUINER Lent has started. What a perfect time to enjoy a good religious movie, especially with so many still homebound due to coronavirus concerns. At some time or other in your life, probably during your Lenten fast, you have asked yourself the question, “what is the meaning of life?” And the answer is, that life has meaning.

Google silences pro-life voices

By Tom Quiner | February 9, 2021

By Iowans for LIFE Did Google swing the election? We typed this sentence into Google’s search engine. The first result referred to the 2016 election, and was published on October 25th, 2016. The second result was a “fact-checking” article from the New York Times that said former President Trump’s claim of voter fraud lacked evidence. Neither result referred to the search terms we used, this from the search engine that…

The unprotected class strikes back

By Tom Quiner | November 6, 2020

By Iowans for LIFE Wall Street Journal columnist, Peggy Noonan, made an astute observation four years ago. There are two classes in this country: the protected class and the unprotected class. In Noonan’s words: “The protected make public policy. The unprotected live in it. The unprotected are starting to push back, powerfully. The protected are the accomplished, the secure, the successful—those who have power or access to it. They are…
