Celebrity Scientist/Agnostic Says Jesus Would Vote for…

03/04/2016 Comments (18)

For an agnostic, astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson has a lot to say about Jesus.

Tyson, who is widely claimed by atheists as one of their own, always calls himself an agnostic. But the other day, he took it upon himself to teach us who Jesus would vote for on twitter. Because, you know, if you're looking for theological accuracy you should be on Twitter. Id' bet it likely was right in line with who Tyson would vote for.

Now, of course, he doesn't say who he's vote for because he's an astrophysicist and therefore above such mundane concerns. In much the same way, he refuses to be called an atheist because he says he's only one kind of "ist" and that's a scientist. You see, he's above the...READ MORE

Newspaper Labels Clarence Thomas "It"

03/01/2016 Comments (6)

The Daily Mail refers to Clarence Thomas as "it." Their headline:

IT SPEAKS! Justice Clarence Thomas asks a question in court for the first time in 10 YEARS in gun case

Can you just imagine if a conservative organization de-humanized an African-American liberal?

The thing is, I don't think they did this just because he's black. They're doing this because he's a black conservative Christian. And that's not allowed so therefore he's fair game for dehumanization. He is the "other."

This is not an anomaly. Look at how Senator Ted Cruz has been treated. The New York Times itself explained why there's been no media hoopla over the fact that Ted Cruz is the first Hispanic to win a caucus....READ MORE

"Make Them a Cupcake": Kasich and Religious Liberty

02/26/2016 Comments (25)

Governor John Kasich is no friend of religious liberty. In fact, he recently mocked Christian business owners who refused to take part in same sex weddings.

Kasich, who once boasted that he attended a same-sex ceremony, flippantly said, "if you’re a cupcake maker and someone wants a cupcake, make them a cupcake. Let’s not have a big lawsuit or argument over all this stuff. Move on.”

Kasich's dismissive view of religious liberty fails to take into account that it's not the Christian business owners who are initiating legal proceedings. And also, using the glib phrase "make them a cupcake" is an attempt to belittle the very real religious objections some business owners have. Kasich's quote...READ MORE

New App Changes Every Mention of "Pro-Life" to "Anti-Choice."

02/22/2016 Comments (24)

They say this is a way to further dialogue about abortion, it seems to me that it is shutting down dialogue.

There's a new Google extension app that will change any and all mentions of "pro-life" to "anti-choice" on the Google Chrome browser.

“Tired of seeing the fraught term ‘pro-life’ used ubiquitously and incorrectly, we conceived of this extension to shift the language of the discussion towards a more accurate framework,” states the online description of the “Choice Language” tool.

The anonymous creator partnered with the National Institute for Reproductive Health Action Fund for the big release. Andrea Miller, the president of NIRH, told Think Progress that she thinks that the term...READ MORE

The Cure for Everything Can't Be Contraception and Death

02/17/2016 Comments (5)

Ask any secularist liberal the solution to just about any societal ill and the answer is alarmingly the same.

What to do now that we're faced with the Zika virus? More contraception and abortion.

What to do about poverty? Contraception and abortion.

Genetic abnormalities in infants? Abortion.

Global warming or climate change? Contraception and abortion.

Healthcare for everyone? Make sure it includes free contraception and abortion, and hey, let's make Catholic institutions pay for it too.

Crime? Abortion and contraception. Don't believe me? Freakonomics would differ.

World hunger? Illiteracy? Women's equality? Abortion and contraception.

If dead and missing babies are the cure for...READ MORE

Trouble at Mount St. Mary's University

02/13/2016 Comments (12)

After weeks of a burgeoning national controversy, the faculty at Mount Saint Mary's University voted overwhelmingly (87-3) to ask President Simon Newman to resign.

Mount St. Mary's University has enjoyed an excellent reputation for its Catholic identity in recent years, earning a spot in The Newman Guide to Choosing a Catholic College, a publication of The Cardinal Newman Society. But that spot seems to be in jeopardy in light of recent reports and allegations concerning the new president of the university, Simon Newman, urging faculty to usher weaker students out of the school as quickly as possible in an effort to improve the retention rate at the school. According to the Washington...READ MORE

The Super Bowl Ad that Freaked Out NARAL

02/08/2016 Comments (23)

Any commercial that horrifies NARAL intrigues me. Well, Doritos did it.

Now, I can't imagine watching this commercial and being offended because it humanizes the unborn. Can you imagine being that crazy? But I guess if your entire living is based on the dehumanization of the unborn, you might understand? So here's the commercial which horrified NARAL:


NARAL responded quickly with gasps and accusations of Doritos being "sexist" and "humanizing fetuses."

#NotBuyingIt - that @Doritos ad using #antichoice tactic of humanizing fetuses & sexist tropes of dads as clueless & moms as uptight. #SB50

The great Lila Rose responded:

Newsflash to @NARAL: human...READ MORE

The Upside of Zika

02/05/2016 Comments (5)

There are some who seem pretty thrilled with the outbreak of Zika because it's given new life to the anti-life crowd. The somewhat new virus has reinvigorated the tired old arguments against the Catholic Church's teaching on life and sexuality.

According to the Center for Disease Control, the Zika virus is spread through mosquito bites with he most common symptoms including fever, rash, joint pain, and conjunctivitis which typically lasts several days to a week. The illness is usually mild with symptoms lasting from several days to a week. However, some reports link the disease with birth defects and some governments in South America have warned women at risk of contacting the Zika virus...READ MORE
