WomenPriests and their supporters: “Strike three and you’re out!”

  It’s pretty easy to tell that the folks over at the National Catholic Reporter (NCR) aren’t happy campers these days. Some of their heroes fighting on the front lines for women’s ordination are being “disciplined.” According to a recent NCR article: A longtime peace and human rights activist arrested countless times, Franciscan Fr. Jerry Zawada […]

Atlanta’s “Archbishop Bling”? The mainstream media and liberals in the Catholic press have been silent…

  When it comes to clerical “careerism,” ostentatious “princely” lifestyles, or even the mode of transportation, Pope Francis has sent a new standard—one of humility and poverty—for clerics. It’s been called the “l’effet Francois” (“the Francis effect”). Members of the mainstream media and liberals in the Catholic press love it and have been quick to jump […]

Sebelius v. Hobby Lobby: The U.S. Solicitor General’s clever, but illogical deceit…

  Today, the Solicitor General of the United States, Donald Verrilli, will tell the the Supreme Court during oral arguments in the case of Sebelius v. Hobby Lobby that killing a human embryo by preventing the embryo from implanting in his or her mother’s uterus is not an “abortion” and, thus, the drugs approved by Obamacare that kill embryos … … Continue reading

Some fallout after Cardinal Dolan steps into a snake pit…

  It appears that the public relations officer for Cardinal Dolan, Joseph Zwilling, has been getting quite a workout this past week. The poor fellow has had to respond to the Cardinal’s botched pre-recorded appearance on Sunday, March 9th’s Meet the Press. In that interview, David Gregory asked Cardinal Dolan: Michael Sam, from your home […]

“A Pope Conservatives Can Love?”

  Last December, S. E. Cupp wrote an op ed in the New York Daily News in which she stated: While liberals will revel in ideas that Pope Francis is reforming the church to their liking, and condemning conservative values in the process, it’s actually fairly easy to see his mission as the opposite. He’s arguing for a […]

“Educational itineraries of encounter and of dialogue”: The new mission of Catholic higher education…

  Many have said that Pope Francis would “shake things up.” They have pointed to his living quarters, cars, committee of cardinals to study reforming the Curia, founding the new dicastery for finance, and most famously, his “Who am I to judge?” statement. These provide all the testimony need to demonstrate that this Pope is […]

Catholic and Jesuit identity: The stormy petrils lose this round at Santa Clara University…

  Despite the Siren song of the stormy petrils, a Bay Area News Group article reports that the Board of Trustees of Santa Clara University (SCU)—a Jesuit university—has upheld its decision last year to terminate elective abortion healthcare coverage for employees beginning January 1, 2015. In a statement issued February 14, Board Chairman Robert Finocchio wrote: In […]

The Newman Center at the University of New Mexico: The stormy petril’s angry narrative…

  Given the outcry on the part of the stormy petrils and length of the article in the National Catholic Reporter Online (NCR), one would think the world had come to an end. At least, according to the “narrative.” It seems as if everything today is about a “narrative.” Consider the angry narrative providing the […]

“Planned Parenthood abortion clinic: We cannot cooperate with evil…”

  Planned Parenthood is constructing a new $42.M, 8k-square foot building in New Orleans.The City of New Orleans has already approved the construction permit and the facility is scheduled to open later this year. It is estimated that 30 abortions will be able to be performed each day at the facility. Archbishop Gregory M, Aymond  of […]

Pope “Wunnerful”: The great liberal American Catholic hope…

  Liberal American Catholics are in for one, big surprise. The Pope who is expected to change everything–Pope “Wunnerful”–isn’t quite the liberal they hope he is. The Rolling Stone magazine cover naming Pope Francis its “Person of the Year for 2013″ along with its banner headline, “The Times They Are a-Changin,” is yet another instance of the […]
