    On Dec. 7, 2007, the movie "The Golden Compass," based on the first book in the fantasy trilogy entitled "His Dark Materials" by atheist Philip Pullman will be released in theaters throughout the world.

Pullman is an avowed atheist who has dedicated his life to undermining Christianity and the Church among young readers. The film's release is only another example of a culture spiraling away from faith, a culture into which...

So the mayor of Rankweil, a town near the border with Switzerland, has launched a one-man campaign disparaging Halloween as a "bad American habit" and urging families to skip it this year. "It's an American custom that's got nothing to do with our culture," Kohler wrote in letters sent out to households.

    A pregnant teenage mother today appealed against a sentence of death by stoning imposed on her for committing adultery in northern Nigeria where Islamic law applies. Hajara Ibrahim’s lawyers argued for the conviction to be overturned because the 18-year-old was never married and, therefore, could not be guilty of adultery. Judge Mohammed Mustapha Uma, sitting in the Upper Shariah Court in the rural town of Dass, said he would issue a ruling on November 10. Ibrahim, seven months pregnant, was convicted of adultery on October 5 by an Islamic court in Bauchi state, in Nigeria’s predominantly Muslim north. While Ibrahim...

The essence of Freemasonry is as follows: that it is necessary to convince men of "good will" that denominational religion in general-and Catholicism in particular-is divisive. Men must see each other as brothers, working by means of natural virtue to pursue the common good without doing or saying things that might divide a...
