“If unborn life must be denied, its incriminating witness, language, must be denied with it,” DeMarco points out. Thus, pro-abortion advocates have to change their language to hide (from themselves?) their true motives. Not only do they have to dehumanize the unborn baby by calling him or her a ‘fetus,’ but they also have to pretend to themselves that social interconnectedness does not exist.[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...]
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.

But to do so would be to reject materialism as the explanation of the universe. It might even crack a window to the existence of God. Are liberals really willing to go there?[click to continue...]
Most people in our modern era can be accused of not doing much thinking about sex.
That is a funny assertion to make, I realize.
Our culture is saturated in sex, isn’t it?[click to continue...]
Both the traditional marriage camp and the ‘progressive’ view of marriage can actually agree on one thing: marriage is a contract. You may be surprised to read that. But let me flesh it out, with the help of the quotes below from Frank Sheed, Catholic evangelist extraordinaire.[click to continue...]
“Mutual masturbation.” That is how author and Notre Dame professor, Charles Rice describes contraceptive sex in his book, Fifty Questions on Natural Law (Ignatius Press: San Francisco, 1995, pg. 254).
