Catholic College Students Protest Pro-Life Republican as Commencement Speaker

04/25/2013 Comments (24)

A number of students at St. John's University in New York are protesting the administration's invitation to Republican Peter King to speak at their commencement ceremony next month. King is pro-life and pro-marriage so the usual red flags are avoided. But a petition created by students which already has over 1,119 signatures alleges that King is unfit to speak at the commencement because he has made "discriminatory and offensive" remarks in the past.

The petition alleges that King's hearings on the dangers of Islamic radicalization amount to "trials against American-Muslims" which contradict the mission of the university to respect the rights and dignity of all. "It is clear that his...READ MORE

Why Did Gosnell Sever the Babies' Spinal Cord If They Were Already Dead?

04/23/2013 Comments (11)

The Philadelphia judge overseeing the Kermit Gosnell murder trial threw out three of the seven first-degree murder charges Gosnell faced for allegedly killing babies born alive at his abortion clinic.

One of the most horrific underlying reasons for the dismaying dismissal is that Gosnell's support staff lacked the medical expertise to know whether a baby was actually dead when Gosnell cut the baby's neck and spinal cord. So Gosnell is actually reaping the benefit of having hired high schoolers and others with absolutely no medical background as his medical support staff. Think about this, the judge is actually doubting the word of people who made their living killing children as to...READ MORE

Talking and Praying with My Kids About Boston

04/19/2013 Comments (5)

I'm always seeing pieces in the media about what to tell your children about this or that. My default position has always been to tell my children nothing. Nothing at all. My kids are pretty dumb. I mean, they do o.k. in school but they're just not all that into the world. They like playing. They like throwing balls at each other's heads. They like monkey bars and baseballs. They like reading. Well, some of them do. The ten year old can't read while dribbling a basketball so given the fact that books don't bounce, her decision was pretty easy. So the Archbold kids have pretty much been ignoring the world since 1999.

It's been a good run. But now my oldest is thirteen and it's getting a...READ MORE

Retired Bishop Tells Catholics to Ignore Archbishop

04/15/2013 Comments (130)

A retired auxiliary bishop who reportedly has worn a mitre with a pink triangle and a rainbow ribbon on it has publicly gone against the words of Archbishop Allen Vigneron who recently said that those opposing the Church's teaching on gay marriage should not present themselves for Communion.

"Don't stop going to communion. You're okay," reportedly said Retired Auxiliary Bishop of Detroit Thomas Gumbleton.

Bishop Gumbleton has long been a contrarian on many things. He's publicly spoken at events and has been honored by organizations like New Ways Ministry, an organization dedicated to supporting lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender Catholics. The USCCB Committee on Doctrine and the...READ MORE

Proof that Progressives Hate Catholic Schools and Homeschooling Families

04/07/2013 Comments (66)

All Your Kids Are Belong To Us, Love NBC.

The only time anyone at MSNBC interests me is when they actually say things that the left believes wholeheartedly but know that actually verbalizing it would mean a p.r. disaster. This is an MSNBC commercial. And it should scare any parent that watches it.

MSNBC personality Melissa Harris-Perry says, according to the transcript from Newsbusters, "We have to break through our kind of private idea that kids belong to their parents or kids belong to their families and recognize that kids belong to their communities."

Wait, what!?

Sarah Palin tweeted that it was "Unflippingbelievable." But here's the thing - it's absolutely believable. For...READ MORE

The 7 Most Hilariously Bad Arguments for Gay Marriage

04/05/2013 Comments (303)

For years we were told that marriage was a dying institution but suddenly it’s all the rage and everyone wants in.

And now, there is a great national debate on gay marriage. Well, kind of. It's more like traditional marriage people asking questions and either being ignored or told to shut up in the name of tolerance by pro-same sex marriage advocates.

But we’ve seen a number of arguments arise in favor of gay marriage that don’t really hold together all that well. Here’s the seven most hilariously bad arguments in favor of gay marriage:


7) My son is gay!

This argument has been used most famously by Senator Rob Portman but many others have used it as well in order to "evolve"...READ MORE

What Happened to Dads?

03/31/2013 Comments (40)

My wife recently chaperoned a dance for junior high schoolers at a Catholic school. She working the door when another of the chaperones, a father of one of the students in attendance, hurried over and asked her what he was supposed to do about an eighth grade girl making out with an 8th grade guy in the middle of the dance floor.

“That’s not ok, is it?” he asked her. “Should we be doing something about this?”

The man truly didn’t know what his responsibilities were. My wife was stunned by the question. She was about to answer when another man came up to her and asked her the same question about the kissing couple. “It’s not O.K.,” she said. “Tell them to stop!”

From what I...READ MORE

Just in Time for Holy Week! Time:  Your Religious Child Might Just be Insane

03/29/2013 Comments (48)

Just in time for Holy Week. Time Magazine tells parents to worry that their religious children might not actually be religious, but just plain ol' nuts. Seriously.

You can find this in the magazine with the cover that shows two men kissing which reads, "Gay Marriage Already Won."

In the piece inside called, "Can Your Child be too Religious?" Time posits that one of the warning signs that your child might just be a nutter, is that they're religious. Isn't it such a nice thing to publish a story like this the day before Holy Thursday?

Time Magazine:

So if your child is immersed in scripture after school and prays regularly throughout the day, you may breathe a sigh of relief. ...READ MORE
