American home-schooling groups are happy that the Romeike family avoided deportation, but worry the U.S. government’s handling of the situation sends a mixed message on home-schoolers’ rights.

MORRISTOWN, Tenn. — Home-schooling families around the country celebrated earlier this month when a German home-school family on the verge of deportation received a last-minute reprieve to stay in this country.

But the case has sent disturbing signals to American home-schoolers about their own government’s willingness to stand up for the rights of parents who choose to teach their children at home.

The story of Uwe and Hannelore Romeike and their children captured the attention of U.S. home-schoolers in 2008, when the family arrived in America seeking asylum from the German government’s requirement that children be educated in established schools.

IRVINE, Calif. — Arizona State University’s partnership with a Catholic college providing theology courses to students won praise from Jesuit scholar Father Robert Spitzer as “an experiment in the logic of complementarity.”

“Theological studies enhance the entire liberal arts curriculum. They can’t help but do so,” Father Spitzer told CNA March 13. The Jesuit priest served as president of Washington’s Gonzaga University for more than 10 years. He now heads the Magis Center of Reason and Faith in Irvine, Calif., which explores religious faith’s relationship to physics and philosophy.

Father Spitzer said the partnership between Arizona State and North Dakota’s University of Mary breaks down...READ MORE

WASHINGTON — Contraception has been promoted by the U.S. government as a tool for the expansion of freedom, especially for women, but has actually has been shown not to promote this goal, according to a legal expert.

Instead, contraception has been promoted as a way to promote an ideology about people and relationships that has hurt, rather than helped, the people it claims to assist, said Helen Alvare.

“We really have been primed for quite a bit of time to think of contraception in the context of the question about feminism, about it empowering women,” Alvare, a professor of law at George Mason University, stated in a March 5 address at The Catholic University of America, in Washington....READ MORE

Both New York and Boston have sizeable Irish-Catholic populations, but the cities’ mayors have decided to join homosexual activists in boycotting the St. Patrick’s Day parades.

New York Mayor Bill de Blasio attends the March 2 'St. Pat’s for All Parade,' an event organized by a homosexual-rights activist.

NEW YORK — The mayors of New York and Boston are standing with a handful of homosexual activists in a boycott that organizers of those cities’ St. Patrick’s Day parades believe amounts to a public statement that means no Catholic values need apply.

In early February, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio made a high-profile announcement that he would not be marching in New York’s St. Patrick’s Day Parade, the oldest and largest St. Patrick’s Day parade in the world. De Blasio said he took issue with the parade organizers’ refusal to allow units to join the parade with “pro-gay” signage.
Soon after, the city council also followed de Blasio’s lead and announced its own boycott of this New York...READ MORE
