    They are saying that the next GOP presidential candidate might very well be a pro-abortion Republican who promises not to push that issue and is strong on other issues. They hope that pro-lifers will “be reasonable,” not let the perfect be the enemy of the good, and go along quietly. We won’t. Republicans and Democrats in 1980 took radically different approaches to the right to life. Republicans wrote into their party platform that all abortions should be outlawed. Democrats wrote into their party platform that not only should abortion be legal, but families should be forced to pay for others’...

    THE CONSISTORY: The Protocols Oh Good God, this'll be a busy day. But I love it -- I got into all this thanks to a consistory many moons ago, so these events mean as much to me as many of you would consider the births of your children. In testament to this, I do have a (real) scarlet biretta and zucchetto sitting on my bookshelf, currently in my line of sight. (Both were gifts from Eminent friends.) So as to avoid confusion, and so you can sound smart at cocktail parties and impress your respective audiences, here is the...
