    In early September, the Senate held a confirmation hearing for Amy Coney Barrett, a Notre Dame law professor nominated for the Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals. Sen. Dick Durbin grilled her about her use of the term “orthodox Catholic” to describe those who try to practice the teachings of her church. “Do you consider yourself an ‘orthodox Catholic’?” asked Durbin of Illinois, himself a Catholic, taking issue with Barrett’s use of that term to describe those who strive to align their lives fully with their church’s teachings. Hawaii’s Sen. Mazie Hirono suggested Barrett would be beholden to Catholic teaching when...

    Efforts to block the highly qualified Barrett from the Supreme Court because of her faith betray our nation’s founding ideals. If you ever need much evidence that the growing “God gap” in American politics fosters an immense amount of ignorance and occasionally outright bigotry, look no farther than the concern — the alarm, even — that Amy Coney Barrett is on President Trump’s short list to replace Anthony Kennedy on the United States Supreme Court. The alarm isn’t about her credentials. She’s checked every box of excellence — law review, appellate-court clerkship, Supreme Court clerkship (with Justice Scalia), elite law-firm...
  • Abortion Activist Claims Infant Baptisms Violate a Baby’s Human Rights

    Former Irish president Mary McAleese criticized infant baptism and the Catholic Church this week, while supporting the deadly abuse of children in the womb through abortion. Speaking to the Irish Times, McAleese claimed infant baptism imposes “obligations on people who are only two weeks old.” A radical abortion activist, the political leader has repeatedly attacked the Catholic Church and others who believe unborn babies should have a right to life. Ironically, she expressed horror at the harmless act of baptizing of an infant with water while celebrating abortion – the violent destruction of infants in the womb. Breitbart reports more:...

    Viacom has a serious problem on its hands: Jake Weisman, the co-creator and writer of the Comedy Central show, “Corporate” (he also stars in the show), has threatened to “bring the whole system down.” He was referring to the Roman Catholic Church. Weisman made his threat yesterday on Twitter. His incendiary comment was in response to a news release I wrote about the February 14th episode of “Corporate.” In it, the Eucharist was obscenely mocked. A woman dressed like a nun was shown seductively sucking a cross-shaped popsicle. She remarked, “My favorite flavor—the blood of Christ.” It doesn’t get much...

    The Little Sisters of the Poor are heading back to court to defend themselves against the Obama administration’s Health and Human Services mandate to provide contraception, yet again. In an unusual political move, Pennsylvania and California sued the Little Sisters, demanding the same group who won at the Supreme Court in Zubik v. Burwell provide contraceptives in their state. In early October, HHS issued a new rule that protects religious non-profits like the Little Sisters of the Poor from providing anything like contraception that would violate their religious beliefs. In a press release, Mark Rienzi, senior counsel at Becket and lead attorney...

    Georgetown’s website proclaims it is “the oldest Catholic and Jesuit institute of higher learning in the United States” and is “deeply rooted in the Catholic faith.” One campus group is learning, however, Georgetown’s roots might not be deep enough. Love Saxa is a recognized student group on the Georgetown campus, and it exists “to promote healthy relationships on campus through cultivating a proper understanding of sex, gender, marriage, and family among Georgetown students.” Given the emphasis the Catholic Church puts on these issues (for example, see here and here), and Love Saxa’s alignment with church doctrine, one might believe it...

    A Catholic student group at Georgetown University could be stripped of its funding for its belief in traditional marriage. Love Saxa, a group that advocates for marriage between a man and a woman, is under fire from LGBTQ groups on campus, PRIDE and Queer People of Color, according to The Hoya, Georgetown’s student publication. A pro-choice student senator filed a notice on September 25, arguing Love Saxa’s definition of marriage and relationships violates university standards by fostering hatred or intolerance.The notice, which would identify Love Saxa as a hate group, could strip Love Saxa of its funding and bar it from...

    It came out, thanks to the WikiLeaks disclosures during the 2016 campaign, that Hillary Clinton’s aides were trading nasty notes about Catholics, calling them “severely backwards.” The Dems had long been the party of anti-Catholic bigotry and the exposed emails only confirmed that reputation. American bishops appointed by Pope Francis didn’t make a peep about Hillary’s anti-Catholic bigotry for the simple reason that they share it. They, too, see believing Catholics as “severely backwards.” Many of the Francis-appointed bishops, such as Chicago’s Blasé Cupich, were in the tank for Hillary. Patrick McGrath, the bishop of San Jose, California, used propaganda...

    An independent K-12 Catholic school in the San Francisco Bay Area has removed religious statues from its campus in order to appeal to those of other faiths. Parents and alumni are concerned about San Domenico School's decision to remove a number of statutes and religious icons, especially those of Jesus and Mary, the Marin Independent Journal reported. "Articulating an inclusive foundation appears to mean letting go of San Domenico's 167-year tradition as a Dominican Catholic school and being both afraid and ashamed to celebrate one's heritage and beliefs," wrote parent Shannon Fitzpatrick in an email to school decision makers.

    Catholics in America make up about 25 percent of the population. Yet when it comes to negative stereotypes of religion, Hollywood targets us almost 100 percent of the time. Nowhere is this more true than with gay-themed entertainment. The hostility shown toward all things Catholic made us wary when we heard about ABC's miniseries on the history of the gay rights movement, "When We Rise." As last night's opening episode confirmed, we were right to be on guard.

    Thanks to Catholics who vote Democrat, a Party that hates our religion, we have suffered yet another assault on our religious freedoms. Friday we saw news that was so easy to predict, hit the internet. A Catholic hating, New Jersey judge appointed by disaffected former Catholic and self-absorbed homosexual James McGreevey (a former governor of New Jersey), ordered a Roman Catholic grade school to allow a 7th grade girl to play on the school’s team for 7th grade boys. That it was self-described “Gay American” McGreevey who appointed this black robed tyrant is not surprising. Men like Judge Donald A....

    A Guerneville man accused of toppling statues, breaking windows and ransacking the offices of Cardinal Newman High School stood before a Sonoma County judge Wednesday and declared himself to be Satan. Andrew Faulkner, 23, was arrested Monday night inside the north Santa Rosa Catholic school where authorities believe he went on a vandalism rampage after school hours, causing about $100,000 in damage. At his arraignment on charges of burglary, vandalism and being under the influence of methamphetamine, Faulkner waved to Judge Arthur Wick, said “hi” and concluded his brief appearance with a message. “By the way, I’m Satan,” said Faulkner,...
