WASHINGTON (EWTN News) — A new lawsuit filed against the Department of Justice charges that it is withholding emails about the Obama administration’s decision not to defend the Defense of Marriage Act.

“We have serious concerns that the Justice Department wants to hide evidence that it was doing the bidding of campaign donors and homosexual activists from whom Obama will need assistance for his re-election,” said Family Research Council president Tony Perkins.

Under the Freedom of Information Act, the Family Research Council had requested the relevant documents from the Department of Justice’s Civil Rights Division to determine the basis for the decision and to determine the possible...READ MORE

AUSTIN (EWTN News) — Texas Gov. Rick Perry has expressed disappointment with a federal judge’s Aug. 30 ruling that blocked the state from enforcing an abortion sonogram law until a court rules on a legal challenge to it.

“Every life lost to abortion is a tragedy, and today’s ruling is a great disappointment to all Texans who stand in defense of life,” the governor said. “This important sonogram legislation ensures that every Texas woman seeking an abortion has all the facts about the life she is carrying and understands the devastating impact of such a life-changing decision.”

The law requires doctors to conduct a sonogram on a woman seeking an abortion at least 24 hours before the...READ MORE

In the Church of the One Truth there are no ceremonies, no sacraments, no saints. There are no cathedrals, no worship, no mass. There are no sacred books, sacred music, sacred creeds. There is no morality, no accountability, no judgment.

In the Church of the One Truth, there is simply one solitary and singular truth. This singularity is the explanation for all times, all places, all things and all people. The sole truth of the Church of the One Truth is that the universe in its entirety is simply material. Everything is material, physical, observable. In other words, everything is simply one of two things. Everything is either matter or energy. All things are entirely tangible. Or, they...READ MORE

CASTEL GANDOLFO, Italy (EWTN News/CNA) — Artistic beauty can lead the human heart to God, said Pope Benedict XVI at his Aug. 31 general audience.

“Art is capable of making visible our need to go beyond what we see, and it reveals our thirst for infinite beauty, for God,” the Pope said to more than 5,000 pilgrims at his summer residence of Castel Gandolfo, 15 miles south of Rome.

“Dear friends, I invite you to be open to beauty and to allow it to move you to prayer and praise of the Lord.”

The Pope explained how this “path of beauty” can be “an open door on the infinite” and is something experienced by all people, not merely by those who regard themselves as cultured.

BURLINGTON, Vt. (EWTN News/CNA) — With the guidance of Vermont Catholic Charities, the Church in the state is assessing the extent of the storm’s devastation to determine the particular needs of the people, the Diocese of Burlington said on Aug. 30.

Irene dropped up to 11 inches of rain on Vermont over the weekend and caused normally small mountain streams to flood. The floodwaters smashed buildings and ripped homes from their foundations, surprising many.

As of Aug. 30, the death toll for Hurricane Irene stood at 42 people, and of that number, at least three were from Vermont. The flooding caused by Irene has also isolated people, closing 260 roads and 30 highway bridges.
