"I Will Go for Her." The Amazing Story of A Polish Martyr

06/02/2016 Comments (5)

Blessed Marianna Biernacka is described in many reports as leading a "simple" life. But it's my experience that there are really no simple lives. Marianna knew heartbreak. She knew fear. She knew backbreaking work. She knew loss. And she knew God's love.

Marianna was born in 1888. At the age of twenty she married a local man, Louis Biernacki. Together, they had six children, four of whom died shortly after birth. The only source of survival for the family was their family farm.

After the death of Louis in 1929, Marianna lived with her son Stanislaw. Stanislav eventually married a young woman, Anna Szymczyk, and they all lived together. Prayer and song were a large part of their lives....READ MORE

Remember This Hero Priest on Memorial Day

05/28/2016 Comments (5)

On June 20 of 2009, Lt. Col. Father Timothy Vakoc passed away. Five years before on Mary 29th, 2004, Father Vakoc was terribly injured when he was ordered to return to Mosul as some troops had been injured and required his presence.

But on his way, a bomb tore into his Humvee and he suffered a traumatic brain injury and lost his left eye. When he arrived at the base, there was massive pressure on his brain due to swelling. They had no choice but to induce a coma for any chance of survival. According to reports, just before he went under he told another chaplain to "Take care of my men."

Father Tim survived but it wasn't easy. For five long years, he struggled, sometimes lapsing into...READ MORE

With Final Words, Christian Girl Begs Forgiveness for ISIS for Killing Her

05/23/2016 Comments (15)

The young daughter of an Iraqi Christian family burned alive by ISIS used her final moments in her mother's arms to beg forgiveness for her killers.

Jihadists reportedly arrived at the family's home in Mosul seeking to collect a fine that the Muslims charge Christians called "Jaziya." They told the mother that the family must pay instantly or evacuate the home. The mother simply begged for a few moments as her 12 year old daughter was in the shower. They did not wait. Instead, they immediately set the house ablaze.

The girl was severely burned in the fire. Her mother did get her outside the house but the girl died just a few hours later in a local hospital. The little girl died in her...READ MORE

Supreme Court Punt is a Huge Win for Little Sisters and Religious Liberty

05/16/2016 Comments (9)

Sometimes a punt is a win.

And the Little Sisters of the Poor seem to have won a great victory for religious freedom by the Supreme Court's decision to punt the case back to the lower courts. Now, many in the media seem to be saying that this was essentially a "no-decision" but that's not really the case.

The Supreme Court did decline to make a definitive ruling, saying both sides should attempt to forge a compromise which doesn’t mandate that religious organizations offer contraceptive coverage in a way that infringes on their religious freedom. But here's the thing. That's been the argument made by the Little Sisters since the beginning.

Many believed that the court, with now only...READ MORE

The Strange Case of Robert Louis Stevenson and Rev. Dr. Hyde

05/11/2016 Comments (6)

Saint Damien of Molokai in 1889

Robert Louis Stevenson, the famous author of Treasure Island and Jekyll and Hyde, suffered from tuberculosis (who wasn't back in the 19th century?) and believed that journeying to the South Pacific would be good for his health. Stevenson loved to travel and was glad to depart.

He once wrote, “I travel not to go anywhere, but to go. I travel for travel's sake. The great affair is to move.” So off he went and eventually ended up meeting one Rev. Dr. Charles McEwan Hyde.

Now, to be clear, Hyde, a Presbyterian, was no monster like the Hyde that Stevenson had written about years earlier in his famous novel. Dr. Hyde was working on getting smallpox vaccinations for the natives there as well as...READ MORE

Reckless and Ruthless Bullying of North Carolina May Destroy The Country

05/10/2016 Comments (17)

North Carolina and the Obama administration are now at odds in a twisted and bizarre legal battle. The state is being accused of transphobic behavior akin to the old Jim Crow laws while the Obama administration is making an unprecedented power grab and attempting to bully their leftist secularist agenda into reality.

It started last week when the Obama administration sent a letter to the state's governor Pat McCrory demanding that he “not comply with or enforce H.B. 2,” also known as the bathroom law. The federal government is ordering a state not to enforce a state law. Or else. With the federal government there's always an "or else." In this case, Attorney General seems to be saying that...READ MORE

Eleanor Clift Says Planned Parenthood Performs "A Very Small Number of Abortions."

05/03/2016 Comments (17)

Since when is over 300,000 abortions a year a "very small number?" Not just a "small number." A "VERY small number."

Frequent abortion apologist Eleanor Clift reportedly recently said on the McLaughlin Group, "I do have a problem when they try to cut funding to Planned Parenthood which provides a lot of health services and a very small number of abortions."

I know you're shocked. Mostly because you had no idea that the McLaughlin Group was still on the air. Neither did I.

Funny thing is that leftists are always trying to explain that abortion is no big deal at all because it's not the taking of an actual human life or anything but then they try to minimize the number of abortions that...READ MORE

Planned Parenthood's Crazy Reaction to the Fiorina Announcement. Wow.

Meet the most loathsome pair of anti-abortion extremists in America. https://t.co/nAGLu3BVfF #NotMyCandidate pic.twitter.com/nZ0NCbIE0B

That's how Planned Parenthood's Action Fund reacted to the news that Ted Cruz was reportedly set to name Carly Fiorina as his vice presidential choice should he win the nomination. You know, for an organization that says that abortion is just a teensy weensy part of what they do, they seem to talk about it an awful lot. A few minutes later, Planned Parenthood then retweeted this:

And now, it turns out that the website CarlyFiorinaforVicePresident.com redirects to a Planned Parenthood donation page. Wow....READ MORE
