Why Kathleen Sebelius Needs to Speak at Georgetown (6466)

OPINION

There is a reason “pro-choice” Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius hasn’t quietly bowed out of delivering a commencement-day address at Georgetown University May 18: Sebelius needs Georgetown more than Georgetown needs Sebelius.

Sometimes a controversial speaker will spare the embattled host institution embarrassment by suddenly discovering a “forgotten” engagement. A quiet announcement that overlooked scheduling issues preclude Sebelius from speaking at Georgetown might come in handy for the beleaguered Jesuit institution. Not likely to happen, though.

Former President Bill Clinton, a Georgetown alumnus, also recognized the usefulness of a Georgetown setting....READ MORE

– Mike Sweeney’s Catholic Baseball Camp

Mike Sweeney’s Catholic Baseball Camp, to be held July 24-26 at Cathedral Catholic High School in San Diego, is not your average baseball camp. In addition to the customary fielding, hitting and base-running, this camp will include daily Mass, confession and praying the Rosary.

Participants will learn not only how to become great baseball players, but great human beings as well. Contrary to what some think, the two are not incompatible, the camp’s originator and leader, Sweeney, explained.

“The reason I started the camp was to share the integration of two of my loves in life: baseball and the Catholic faith. Of course I value playing baseball, but, more importantly, I set a...READ MORE

Patrick Deneen, the founding director of the Tocqueville Forum on the Roots of American Democracy at Georgetown University, and several other faculty members drafted a letter to Georgetown's president, John DeGioia, asking him to rescind the Georgetown Public Policy Institute’s invitation to Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius. Deneen supplied a copy of the letter to the Register and said that his group invited a “large number of faculty to join, including all faculty in Catholic studies and all signers of the letter to Congressman [Paul] Ryan, along with faculty whom we believed might be inclined to sign. A total of nine faculty elected to sign this letter.”

President Obama and the Future of Marriage (4358)

President Obama is apparently tired of pretending he opposes “gay marriage.” Good.

Good, because lying to the American people is always wrong and because now the American people will have a clear choice: a president who supports same-sex “marriage” or a president who sides with the majority of the American people, including 61% of North Carolinians.

Obama has done for Mitt Romney what Romney might have had trouble doing for himself:  consolidating his support among religious conservative voters.

The North Carolina vote was a huge blow to the media narrative that same-sex “marriage” is inevitable. The margin was so large that even MSNBC News had to use words like “overwhelming” and...READ MORE

WASHINGTON — Just one day after North Carolina voters overwhelmingly defended traditional marriage in their state, President Barack Obama announced his support for same-sex “marriage,” prompting swift responses from Catholic leaders and redrawing the political battle lines in an election year.

New York Cardinal Timothy Dolan called the president’s support for efforts to redefine marriage “deeply saddening” and said the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops will not be silent in the face of words and actions that will undermine marriage, the cornerstone of society.

“The people of this country, especially our children, deserve better. Unfortunately, the president’s words today are not...READ MORE
