Pro-life hero and leader of Priests for Life, Fr. Frank Pavone makes a profound realization in his book, “Abolishing Abortion: How You Can Play a Part in Ending the Greatest Evil of Our Day.” He explains how the US government usurped God’s authority to take a life with the Supreme Court decision, Roe v. Wade.[click to continue...]
Say what you will about the man. But to steal a phrase from former VP Joe Biden, it remains “a big [expletive] deal” that the 45th President of these United States addressed the 45th Annual March for Life in Washington, DC.[click to continue...]

The right-to-life movement would be essentially erased, if pro-life advocates adopt Renkl’s short-sighted supposed solution.
Let’s begin by observing the most obvious error in her thinking. That is, by agreeing to not talk about the issues of abortion, contraception, so-called “gay marriage,” L.G.B.T. issues, and so forth, we would thus guarantee their further decaying of our culture. Only by shining a light into the darkness of sinful behavior does such behavior ever end. “Take no part in the unfruitful works of darkness, but instead expose them,” the Bible instructs (Eph 5:11).[click to continue...]
We in the USA are accustomed to a couple falling in love, entering an engagement, and then having their wedding. Whereas, the routine in Biblical times did not follow this pattern. Those who do not understand the culture of Biblical times instead project their modern understandings back onto the text and end up with faulty translations.[click to continue...]
Those throwing vasectomy parties are, thus, guilty of scandalizing their friends and family. They are making light of a grave sin against their very nature as human beings. Those who attend such parties are culpable for doing so, as well. For they are condoning and encouraging those who commit to a future of sterile sex.[click to continue...]
In addition to exposing sexual harassers, our society would do well to purge itself of all sexual evildoers. After all, if we are going to get serious about ending sexual harassment, then we need to end the areas of our culture where women are treated as nothing better than sexual objects. This would include those who produce pornography and run porn sites, as well as those who run strip clubs.[click to continue...]
Here is another novel idea. What is the purpose of dating, again? To discern whom you ought to marry. Therefore, a short dating period before engagement, of say no more than four months would be wise. Whoa, why would I say that? Just think about it.
You are spending time with this other person in a dating relationship so as to discern whether you wish to spend the rest of your life with him or her. If you cannot decide yes within a few months, then you probably best ought to move on. Why perpetuate the period of indecision?[click to continue...]
The barren woman, if you pardon the simile, has become the sacred cow of our culture. [click to continue...]
I attended a Requiem Mass awhile ago for a deceased relative of a family friend. My understanding of our Catholic faith was that we were coming together to pray for the deceased. But apparently the celebrant priest was under a different modus operandi.[click to continue...]
In light of the tragedy at Sutherland Springs Baptist Church last week, many churchgoers felt compelled to pack heat in self-defense. This is an understandable and very human response. After all, self-preservation and the desire to protect one’s family from unjust aggressors lie within our human nature. Everyone is entitled to feel this way.
Well, that is, unless you live in the Diocese of Dallas, Texas.[click to continue...]
Leaving the practice of religion up to each child to decide for themselves when they are a teenager or older punts this moral duty parents have. Yes, it is true each person will need to decide for themselves whether to make the practice of their faith genuine, rather than just a family tradition. Still, how are your children supposed to choose for themselves whether to follow God, if you don’t teach them His commands, so they know what they are deciding between? For, if you don’t see to it that they learn His commands, then who will? Certainly not the public school system or pop culture![click to continue...]
