Carly handles pro abortion heckler in Iowa City

Think about the clash ideologies on display. The liberal demands to know, “well, if you won’t let us kill a million kids a year, what are going to do with them after they’re born?”

The suggestion is, of course, that the mother and father have zero responsibility for their child. But even more, a statement like this is a “lazy slander of the pro life movement…”

How to get Millennials back to church

I spent the first half of my life in the Episcopal church before converting to Catholicism.

While scrolling through my Facebook newsfeed, I noticed a link to an article written by a noted progressive Christian writer, Rachel Held Evans, who is a proud Episcopalian.

“The state is making itself into a church”

“What will happen if the HHS regulations are not rescinded? A Catholic institution, so far as I can see right now, will have one of four choices: 1) secularize itself, breaking its connection to the church, her moral and social teachings and the oversight of its ministry by the local bishop. This is a form of theft.

This is not economically sustainable. 3) Sell the institution to a non-Catholic group or to a local government. 4) Close down.”

The NFL in the crosshairs

The NFL feeding frenzy begins.

Commissioner Roger Goodell better prepare for a long siege. He is now officially politically incorrect. Watch what happens over the weeks, months, and years ahead. The NFL is going to face an onslaught of bad press. They will be able to do nothing right in the eyes of media mavens and an alphabet soup of activist groups.

The campaign against the NFL will mirror the media campaign against the Catholic Church over the priest abuse scandal…

"This is vile"

“This is vile. The destiny of every woman is to do whatever happens, and thankfully we all have more options open to us than to be appendages to men and broodmares. How insulting to infertile women and women who never have a partner for whatever reason!”

A church madly in love with rationalism

Is there anything wrong with being naked in public?
Most sane people would say yes. Why? Because we are more than the animals who roam the earth unclothed.
However, in San Francisco, public nudity has been a common occurrence. There, the Board of Supervisors wrangled over banning public nudity …

Should the Catholic Church issue driver's licenses?

“Acting on the authority given to it by the Vatican, the United State Council of Catholic Bishops has announced that, to ensure equality and social justice, any male or female, regardless of age, who demonstrates:
1) the required knowledge of the rules of the road
2) can steer and reach the pedals,
shall be issued the Catholic Motor Vehicle License which shall be valid in any diocese which accepts it, regardless of state law. No one may be denied the fundamental right to drive on the basis of age, visual acuity, vehicle preference or emotional orientation.”
