    A federal judge late Friday granted a temporary restraining order against the release of recordings made at an annual meeting of abortion providers. The injunction is against the Center for Medical Progress, the group that has unveiled Planned Parenthood’s participation in the sale of organs harvested from aborted children.Judge William H. Orrick, III, granted the injunction just hours after the order was requested by the National Abortion Federation.Orrick was nominated to his position by hardline abortion supporter President Barack Obama. He was also a major donor to and bundler for President Obama’s presidential campaign. He raised at least $200,000 for...

In the short time she was on screen, O'Neill managed to utter a surprising array of tone-deaf and highly-charged statements. In addition to the above quote, O'Neill elaborated that the organization is everywhere and all things, claiming that one in every...

    In recent weeks we have seen the ugly truth of what a post-Christian America looks like. From the unveiling of a statue of Baphomet by Satanists in Detroit last weekend, to the release of multiple undercover videos of Planned Parenthood sorting through aborted babies and negotiating the sale of their parts, Americans have witnessed nothing less than the manifestation of pure evil in our time. Satan is indeed prowling about our country seeking the ruin of souls.In the midst of this moral depravity and horrific evil I recently came across Pope Leo XIII’s encyclical “Tametsi Futura Prospicientibus”.

    The New York Times reported this week  that the American Boy Scouts are ending a nationwide ban on gay leaders. According to the Times, the organization was seeking to resolve an issue that threatened to tear apart the organization and expose it to crippling lawsuits. Discrimination based on sexual orientation will also be barred in all Boy Scout offices and for all paid jobs. The step, the paper says, is aimed at heading off lawsuits in New York, Colorado and other states that prohibit such discrimination in employment.It's a pity, however, that the Times missed a shocking story which emerged...

If you watch the video (you must watch the video,) be warned—it’s nauseating. I don’t give these kinds of warnings lightly.When CMP first launched its campaign against Planned Parenthood, conservatives in the Senate came together to draft legislation defunding Planned Parenthood and its affiliates.

    Sixty-three percent of registered voters oppose cutting off federal funds to Planned Parenthood, according to a new poll commissioned by the organization. The poll, conducted by the Democratic firm Hart Research Associates, finds that along with 63 percent of voters overall who oppose defunding Planned Parenthood, 68 percent of independents also oppose the move. The poll finds that a “bare majority” of 53 percent of Republicans favor defunding, while 34 percent oppose the move. The survey finds that voters are more likely to vote for a candidate who supports funding Planned Parenthood over one calling to end funding, by a...

    Reason magazine went out on a limb recently and published an article entitled “Privatizing Marriage Is a Terrible Idea,” by Shikha Dalmia. She presented an argument that is boldly counter-intuitive for many libertarians these days: that abolishing state-recognized marriage would increase government interference in our lives rather than reduce it. Dalmia is absolutely correct about this. And it would behoove anyone who truly stands for limited government to consider her points thoughtfully and soberly. The libertarian default position that goes by the slogan “let’s just get the government out of the marriage business” is short on substance. If it sounds...

    Americans have become so “non-judgmental” that many people can no longer tell the difference between good and evil. We congratulate ourselves for being “nicer,” more sensitive and less prejudiced than past generations of Americans, but we don’t stop to consider how much more there is to morality than that. An America that isn’t full of good people won’t remain a good nation, nor will it remain strong and free over the long haul. Our country’s lack of morality has real consequences that are capable of eventually sinking us as a nation. 1) The Collapse Of Marriage: There used to be...

I have shown that on the face of it that cannot be so, because the left-hander uses his hand as a hand, just as the right-hander uses his. But now suppose that the proponent concedes the point. “All right, I grant that it is not the same at all. But so what? We are just like everybody else in all important respects.”The first answer to that is that the proponent...

Supreme Court’s decision on homosexual “marriage,” Alabama’s Chief Justice Ray Moore said the decision was worse than the decision to uphold segregation because “it affects our entire system of morality and family values.” At the time of the Plessy v. Ferguson decision, it was likely that morality and family values were assailed as well, though perhaps to a different degree. Nonetheless, Moore...

Hodges gave additional proof that the legal basis for same-sex “marriage” is inextricably tied up with abortion-on-demand and other aspects of the sexual revolution.In his 5-4 decision, Justice Kennedy says the newly discovered constitutional right to enter into a homosexual “marriage” is granted, in part, by the “right to privacy.”That right, first...

    RUSH: Have you heard this? By the way, it's true. It is being said that gay marriage is superior to heterosexual marriage. I can't believe we're even using language that signifies the difference, but, anyways, we have to. The militant gay community says that gay marriage is superior because they get to pick their children via adoption. Therefore, they -- having chosen the exact kind of child they want-- have a much better chance at raising that child than a hetero couple who simply have to deal with whatever the sperm and the egg produce.

    I believe in the “dead-end rule.” This rule states that if you go down a dead-end road and ignore the signs that say it is a dead-end, you will soon learn by personal experience that it is a dead-end. I have invoked this rule many times in my worldwide teaching and preaching against abortion. For millennia, the church – and many others too – have been holding up the signs saying that abortion is a dead-end. Those individuals, families, and nations that have ignored these signs are now reaping the fruit of the bitter experience that abortion does not solve...

    Join the Movement – Help us Oppose Physician Assisted Suicide Msgr. Charles Pope • July 8, 2015 • 1 Comment Here in Washington D.C., the City Council has before it a bill modeled after Oregon’s physician-assisted suicide law. Listed as the “Death with Dignity Act of 2015,” a public hearing will take place this Friday, July 10th at 11:00 AM in the District building.Experience thus far with legalized assisted suicide should alarm anyone who looks seriously into how it has played out. The “safeguards” of the Oregon law, so highly praised by its supporters, seem to be mere window dressings than actual safeguards. In Oregon,...

    WASHINGTON, D.C., July 7, 2015 (LifeSiteNews) – The freedom of religion guaranteed by the First Amendment applies only to churches, not to individuals, a U.S. senator said on national television recently.Sen. Tammy Baldwin, D-WI – the nation's first openly lesbian elected to the U.S. Senate – addressed the Supreme Court's Obergefell v. Hodges decision on June 27 on MSNBC's Up with Steve Kornacki."Should the bakery have to bake the cake for the gay couple getting married?” the host asked. “Where do you come down on that?"Baldwin responded that the First Amendment gave Americans no right to exercise religion outside the...

    TORONTO, July 7, 2015 (LifeSiteNews) -- As Ontario’s Ministry of Health plans measures to reduce the wait time for publicly funded sex-reassignment surgery (SRS), a well-regarded Toronto-based psychiatrist says the rush to provide these procedures is “absurd” and the push to increase their availability politically motivated.Citing an unnamed source “close to” Health Minister Eric Hoskins, Toronto’s Globe and Mail claimed on June 25, a day before the Toronto’s “Trans*Pride March” parade, that the ministry will increase the number of sites that can approve sex-reassignment surgeries, but it is “too early to tell where these will be.”Right now, only the Toronto-based...

    Kinky Trojans — a new student organization at the University of Southern California (USC) for students who practice BDSM sex — has been widely celebrated despite its founding in the wake of a free speech controversy on campus surrounding the school’s removal of “pro-life” banners put up by USC’s Students For Life group. After the international success of the erotic novel “Fifty Shades of Grey,” students on many campuses nationwide initiated student-run extracurricular clubs for students who felt marginalized for their preference in sexual practices — specifically bondage/discipline, dominance/submission, sadism/masochism (BDSM).
  • 7 Reasons Why "Getting Government Out of the Marriage Business" Won't Work

    Florida Family Policy Council ^ | 07/05/2015 | John Stenberger
    At first glance, it sounds nice to say we should “get government out of the marriage business.” Marriage, as far as the state is concerned, would be merely a private relationship contract, with no reference to the lasting features of natural marriage between a man and woman, and its connection to the bearing and raising of children. Many libertarians, including Rand Paul, and now even some conservatives, claim that this will solve the same-sex marriage controversy. Few understand the logical implications of their argument. There are at least seven reasons why “marriage privatization,” if really achieved, would profoundly harm citizens...

    July 6, 2015 (BreakPoint) -- Both before and after the Supreme Court’s ruling in Obergefell v. Hodges, some Christians argued that allowing same-sex couples to marry is not inconsistent with traditional Christian teaching on marriage.At the heart of these arguments is the assertion that same-sex relationships are, to borrow a phrase from gay writer Andrew Sullivan, “virtually normal.” That is, same-sex relationships are, with one very obvious exception, not all that different from traditional marriages. Thus, just as the Supreme Court held that similarly-situated couples should be treated equally under law, similarly-situated couples should be treated equally in our churches.The problem...

    This is a tough Vortex to speak. I’m as patriotic as the next guy. I remember being a young lad of 15 as my country celebrated its bicentennial back in 1976. I watched TV that day from six in the morning until well past midnight as the non-stop, commercial-free, wall-to-wall coverage on the giant national birthday party was broadcast from sea to shining sea. I watched the tall ships sail into New York harbor, saw the explosive fireworks show over D.C. I listened and sang my lungs out with a lump in my throat as Arthur Fielder conducted the Boston...

    July 2, 2015 (LifeSiteNews) - An unusual request from a major donor to a regional branch of the U.S. Girl Scouts has drawn attention to the organization’s ongoing support for gender ideology and transgender issues. Girl Scouts of Western Washington CEO Megan Ferland revealed last week that the council had recently received a donation for $100,000. However, after the Girl Scouts’ practice of allowing boys who identify as girls to join the Scouts hit the news during the media’s coverage of the Bruce Jenner case, Ferland says she received a note from the donor putting a condition on the donation.“Please guarantee...

    (Breakpoint) - In a 1971 appearance on the Dick Cavett Show, John Lennon and wife Yoko Ono gave their take on the big scare of the day: overpopulation.“I don't really believe it,” Lennon said in his Beatle-esque Liverpool accent. “I think whatever happens will balance itself out...It's alright for us all living to say, 'Well, there's enough of us [people] so we won't have any more...I don't believe in that.”It was a counter-cultural statement—even for the voice of the counterculture. Back then, all of the experts were warning that our planet couldn't take much more. And no one sounded that alarm...

    In Times Like These – A Scriptural Guide for Troubled and Confused Times Msgr. Charles Pope • June 29, 2015 • There’s an old hymn that says, “In times like these, you need a Savior, in times like these, you need an anchor. Be very sure, be very sure, Your anchor holds and grips the Solid Rock.” And indeed, there are very few faithful Catholics who are not astonished and dismayed at the rapidity of decline into confusion (sexual and otherwise) of a culture we once described as Judeo-Christian. Whatever our sectarian differences of the past (and honestly they were significant and...
