Threats to religious liberty could be a unifying force for Catholic voters this November.

A group that makes up roughly a quarter of the electorate but historically does not vote as a bloc, the Catholic faithful — united — would wield significant power.

Brian Burch, president of Catholic Vote, said, “The Catholic Church has a massive political army in America — it has just not been organized effectively, and that is what we are trying to do. Sixty-five million Catholics faithfully applying Catholic social teaching would dramatically change the future of this country.”

He added that the continued prosperity of the United States depends on the protection of religious freedom.

LAS VEGAS — Arturo Martinez-Sanchez says he had no choice but to forgive the man suspected of sexually assaulting and killing his wife and young daughter in an April 2012 attack that also left him seriously wounded.

“I have to forgive him, to go the way of life,” the Las Vegas resident said in a July 17 interview. “It’s in the Bible … I forgive him because I believe in God.”

“The Bible says: You forgive this gentleman, and you are forgiven yourself. That’s the way it is,” said Martinez-Sanchez, a lifelong Catholic who said his upbringing and education in the Church impressed on him the need to forgive Bryan Clay.

Martinez-Sanchez recently held a press conference to declare that he...READ MORE

A new pro-life movement is seeking to educate and unite a generation of young people in support of the sanctity of every human life.

Matt Mihelic, director and co-founder of the Rose Initiative, told EWTN News on July 17 that there is a need to show young people that “this is the core issue of our day.”

Mihelic, a 25-year-old law student at Liberty University, said that the title stands for “Reclaim Our Sacred Existence.” This reflects his belief that abortion is not simply a matter of legislation or a Supreme Court decision.

Rather, he explained, the underlying problem is that “the idea has been lost in America that life is sacred.” The Rose Initiative seeks to “reclaim what has...READ MORE

Expert Notes 'Alarming Data' Connecting Hormonal Contraception and HIV Transmission (9493)

An interview with Dr. Timothy Flanigan, an authority on HIV/AIDS prevention and treatment.

07/18/2012 Comments (32)

Dr. Timothy Flanigan

The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation held a July 11 summit designed to raise an estimated $4 billion to promote contraception in the developing world.

The Gates campaign comes amid new research suggesting that use of hormonal contraception doubles the risk of both transmission and acquisition of HIV in regions like sub-Saharan Africa. Register senior editor Joan Frawley Desmond turned to HIV/AIDS expert Dr. Timothy Flanigan to explain how this research is likely to transform family-planning campaigns.

Flanigan offers insight into how big global health organizations and foundations approach these issues and how they perceive natural family planning. He also answers a few burning...READ MORE

Archbishop-Designate Aquila Prepares to Take the Reins in Denver (3295)

The fifth archbishop of the ‘Mile High Archdiocese’ will be installed July 18.

07/17/2012 Comments (1)

VATICAN CITY — Archbishop Samuel Aquila, as the new archbishop of Denver, will continue to firmly and publicly uphold the Church’s teaching, just as he did in his previous Diocese of Fargo, N.D.

Speaking to Register correspondent Edward Pentin July 2, the archbishop stressed that when Catholics in public life go against the magisterium, “all it does is weaken the faith and cause confusion among the laity when no action is taken.”

In Rome to receive the pallium June 29 from Pope Benedict XVI, the archbishop also discussed his hopes as shepherd of Denver, the many gifts Denver has to offer to the universal Church, and his reflections on receiving the pallium. He will be installed the...READ MORE
