    I just finished reading Brian Sullivan’s Reform battles rollback as Romney pledges to repeal Obama's financial regulations regarding the differences between Romney and Obama on the financial services regulations known as Dodd-Frank and Sarbanes-Oxley. Sullivan’s piece is mostly what you would expect from a mainstream media outlet. It’s a topical check list of “On the one hand Romney wants, on the other hand Obama says…” that is just a series of campaign infomercials disguised as balanced analysis. (Please see my personal plea at the end of this article for USA Cares this Memorial Day- and please... give generously)     And it illustrates what’s really...

    The archbishop of Washington on Sunday accused the network news programs of having "missed the boat" by largely ignoring lawsuits filed this past week by Catholic institutions challenging the Obama administration's so-called contraception mandate. Cardinal Donald Wuerl, speaking on "Fox News Sunday," was responding to an analysis by the conservative Media Research Center of how the networks' evening newscasts treated coverage of the dozen federal lawsuits filed Monday. According to the center, CBS spent 19 seconds on the story after it broke, while the other networks gave it no coverage. "It is puzzling, particularly since they're focusing so much attention...

    STORRS, Conn. -- Gay and play hockey? You're welcome at the University of Connecticut. That is the message the school's men's hockey team is sending out in two videos for a program called You Can Play. The goal of the international initiative launched in March is to work to end homophobia in hockey. "We thought it was a great idea to show the community how we feel about homosexuality in sports, and let people know that anyone can play on our team," said UConn captain Sean Ambrosie. The public service videos are posted on YouTube and the UConn website, and...

    WASHINGTON A quiet transformation is taking place in the Republican Party, which has begun to embrace openly gay candidates and among gay Republicans, who now feel more comfortable speaking out in a party that may have accepted them but didnt always show it. While differences still exist, the party is on the cusp of a generational shift in which the longtime foes of gay rights are replaced by younger party leaders who are more accepting. Its an exponential change from a few years ago, said former Republican Rep. Jim Kolbe. Its happening, and its going to continue to...

    Former Secretary of State Colin Powell isnt yet ready to endorse a presidential candidate, but on Wednesday evening, he endorsed same-sex marriage. Powell, who was chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff in 1993 when Dont Ask, Dont Tell was implemented, said in an interview on CNNs The Situation Room with Wolf Blitzer that he has no problem with marriage equality and speculated that most Americans are prepared to adapt to changing times. As I've thought about gay marriage, I know a lot of friends who are individually gay but are in partnerships with loved ones. And they are stable...

    The nations changing views on same-sex marriage and new support from black leaders could put Maryland on track toward becoming the first state to cast a public vote in favor of gay marriage, according to a poll released Thursday. The survey from liberal-leaning Public Policy Polling showed 57 percent of Maryland voters would vote for gay marriage if it is put to referendum this fall and just 37 percent would vote against it a stark departure from past polls by the firm and other groups that have shown Marylanders to be almost evenly divided on the issue.

    Target, the nations second-largest retailer, could be sending as much as $120,000 to a homosexual activist group through its online sale of pride shirts. The site says 100 percent of the sales of the rainbow-themed shirts will go to the Family Equality Council, a gay-activist organization. Among other issues, it lobbies for gay adoption, the repeal of the Defense of Marriage Act and same-sex marriage. Randy Sharp, director of special projects for the American Family Association, denounced the retailer for crossing into social activism. Really what Target is saying is that were going to take sides in this social agenda...

    Public Policy Polling is out with a new survey this morning on the gay marriage referendum likely to be on the Maryland ballot this fall.  It's historic, because it shows that Maryland is likely to pass—by a wide margin—the referendum holding up the bill that lawmakers passed in late February. It's incredible because of the shift in previous polls, particularly among black voters in Maryland.  Check out this flip: In March, 56 percent of black respondents said they would vote against the law, with only 39 percent supporting it. Now, 55 percent of black voters plan to support it, with only 36...

The group launched a website and posted flyers around the Biola University campus May 9 with the following message: "We want to bring to light the presence of the LGBTQ community at Biola.

Bishop Stephen Blaire of Stockton told America magazine that, while the bishops he knows in California are strong supporters of these religious liberty lawsuits, I think there are different groups that are trying to co-opt this and make it into political issue. Forces very far to the Right may be tempted to make the legal challenge a part of...

    The news Monday that 43 different Catholic entities across the country are suing the Obama administration, in response to the Health and Human Services' (HHS) rule mandating employer health care coverage of contraception, abortion-inducing drugs, and sterilization, comes as a blow to the president's strength among Catholics, a demographic that helped carry him to victory in 2008. This news comes on the heels of the the latest CBS News/New York Times poll which finds Mitt Romney now leading President Obama among women, yet another demographic that he previously commanded. If Mr. Obama was hoping to once again rely on Catholics...

    President Obama is apparently tired of pretending he opposes gay marriage. Good. Good, because lying to the American people is always wrong, and because now the American people will have a clear choice: a president who supports gay marriage, or a president who sides with the majority of the American people, including 61 percent of North Carolinians. I'm tired of pretending, too. Conservative elites, including those at Fox News, have shamefully kowtowed to the politically correct opinion on gay marriage. Some do so reluctantly because they have been cowed into believing defeat is inevitable. Some do so because they think...

"I'm running to pay down our debt in a way that's balanced and responsible. After inheriting a $1 trillion deficit, I signed $2 trillion of spending cuts into law," he told a crowd of donors at the Hyatt Regency.

    This column originally appeared in THE DAILY BEAST. In looking ahead toward the November election, Republican strategists should take proactive steps to avoid a damaging, dangerous conclusion to the presidential race and to prevent the very real chance that Mitt Romney will win the Electoral College even while losing the popular vote badly to Barack Obama. The problem stems from the lopsided margins President Obama will surely pile up in a few uncontested states with big populations, including California, New York, Illinois and Massachusetts. Mr. Romney, meanwhile, will prevail by comparable margins in only relatively small states: Utah, Idaho, the...

The editor credits the U.S. president with showing rare courage, while at the same time advancing the cause for civil rights. In approving the legalization of marriage between a man and a man, and a woman and a woman, according to the editorial, Obama is affirming the full humanity of gays and lesbians. He is weighing in on the side of compassion, inclusion and equal rights for all. How could millennia of diverse cultures, until recently,...

    You'd think the largest legal action in American history in defense of religious liberty would be a major news story. But ABC, CBS and NBC don't judge news events by their inherent importance as relates to the future of our freedoms. They deliver the news according to a simple formula: Does it or doesn't it advance the re-election of Barack Obama? If it doesn't, it isn't news. On May 21, 43 Catholic dioceses and organizations sued the Obama administration over its ridiculously narrow idea of how a "religious institution" can be defined under the Obamacare law. Never has the Catholic...

Ave Maria University will not offer or pay for health insurance plans that violate our deeply-held religious beliefs, he said. The announcement comes amid continued controversy over a federal insurance mandate that will require employers and colleges to offer health care plans that cover contraception, sterilization and abortion-causing drugs, even if doing so violates their religious...

    The main goal of the contraception mandate is not to protect women's health. It is a move to conscript religious organizations into a political agenda. This week Catholic bishops are heading to federal courts across the country to defend religious liberty. On Monday they filed 12 lawsuits on behalf of a diverse group of 43 Catholic entities that are challenging the Department of Health and Human Services' (HHS) sterilization, abortifacient and birth-control insurance mandate. Like most Americans, the bishops have long taken for granted the religious freedom that has enabled this nation's diverse religions to flourish in relative harmony. But...

    A lot of cultural commentators are confused these days. They believe that peoples views on same sex marriage are solely a reflection of their religious beliefs.

The same sex marriage debate is about politics. To call it a religious debate is to miss the point entirely. Your stance on same sex marriage should vary depending on whether you consider yourself to be a conservative, a...

Dozens of Catholic institutions filed lawsuits today against the Department of Health and Human Services over its mandate and its narrow definition of religious practice: Catholic archdioceses and institutions filed suit in federal district courts...

On top of the grant, the city provides about $300,000 worth of police, clean-up and other services for Pride Week, which runs from June 22 to July 1 and has a...

    ESPN's Grantland website jumped on the bash Manny Pacquiao bandwagon on Thursday by giving a platform to a homosexual activist, who predictably trashed the Catholic Church as she took the Filipino boxing sensation to task for defending traditional marriage. Writer Laurel Fantauzzo ripped the "the Church's cruel, untrue dictates about me," and promised if he didn't "evolve" like President Obama, "I'll simply have to sigh wearily and turn away from you, the way I've turned away from all of the idiotic bigots I've come across in my life, carrying a cross or a heavy book or a Constitution." In her...

    In 2009, President Obama delivered the commencement address at the University of Notre Dame. Now, Notre Dame is suing his administration over its insistence that Catholic schools and other institutions provide insurance coverage for sterilizations, contraceptives, and other abortifacient drugs without any meaningful opt-out for conscientious objectors. Rev. John Jenkins, the university's president, was given much grief over his commencement invitation to President Obama in 2009. Today, he sent the following email to Notre Dame employees, announcing and explaining the lawsuit.

    Democrats have had a war against African Americans for 200 years. The Democrat Partys most notable Founding Father was Aaron Burr a man who plotted with Democrat Andrew Jackson to steal the Louisiana Territories to break them up and make new slave states out of them. James Polk a Democrat President actually traded in slaves while he was president and fired the permanent civil service staff so he could have his slaves wait on him in our White House. Through the years Democrats have picked up guns to maintain slavery and formed the Klu Klux Klan to keep freed slaves...

    Donations to President Barack Obama’s reelection campaign declined sharply in April, as many big-dollar contributors hit the legal maximum, a BuzzFeed analysis of Federal Election Commission data shows.Obama’s campaign took in $25.7 million, after raising $43.6 million in conjunction with the Democratic National Committee. That represented a drop from the $35 million in receipts the campaign saw in March on $53 million raised by the joint fundraising effort.Most of Obama’s drop is attributable to a decline in contributions of more than $500, which fell by more than $9 million. Many of Obama’s top donors have already hit the legal $2500...

    So its unanimous, then Thomas Edsall was right: In the aftermath of Obamas gay marriage flip, pundits seem to have concluded that Obamas Democratic party has indeed given up on white working class voters. Theyve been dropped from the winning coalition, which is now composed of three main groups: young people, college-educated whites (especially women), and minorities, according to Ron Brownstein. Bill Galston agrees. Ruy Teixeirawho once wrote a book called Americas Forgotten Majority: Why the White Working Class Still Mattersagrees.

    This election is being fought along the traditional skirmish line of capital versus labor. President Obama projects himself as the protector of workers and families who are preyed upon by greedy and wealthy capitalists. Mitt Romney counters that the president doesn't understand business and that his antagonism discourages private investment and job creation. A couple of observations on the table. First, capital income doesn't flow just to "fat cats." It also goes to small businesses, retirement accounts, college endowments, ordinary shareholders, landlords and people who collect interest. Second, labor's shrinking share isn't necessarily a disaster for workers. What else is...

    A co-worker of mine who happens to be gay posted a picture of what was allegedly a church sign saying "I never told LGBT folks they couldn't marry. The bigots don't speak for me. Signed, God." THAT flew all over me. So since they wanted to use religion to justify themselves....I shot back with this series of four jpegs.... Enjoy!
