Children vs Net porn: industries without morals

Pornography on the Internet has exploded into millions of pornographic websites. It is a booming industry of nearly 100 billion dollars. Net porn invades our homes and destroys families without any accountability to anyone. At noon today, I count 17 phonographic emails on my main computer and there are still 12 hours left. This is a daily occurrence. Just one click and any internet company will allow me unrestricted private access to this particular email and other pornographic materials. The same simple procedure is in the hands of young children of all ages. Net porn has opened the doors to “children viewing pornography” and “child pornography” by “industries without morals” seeking to make a profit. Continue reading at Fr. Jerry's Blog...

New! Selling the Rainbow: Why Rainbow-Washing Is Actually Bad Marketing

Mark Batey
When you hitch your brand to a cause or movement that nearly every other brand is co-opting, you are not differentiating but rather genericizing your brand. That's anti-branding. And when the cause or movement you choose has political overtones, you end up alienating, dividing, and disappointing your customers.

New! The transgender moment

Michael Cook
Why does this preposterous movement seem so plausible and righteous?

New! Gender Ideology and the Catholic Church

Bryan R. Cross
Many people have difficulty with the Catholic Church's teaching on sex and gender because they fail to recognize its philosophical dimension. As inheritors of twentieth-century positivism, many today assume that the quantitative sciences are the arbiters of truth, and that any other way of knowing, except that privileged and direct access to one's own internal subjectivity, can be no more than private opinion or pseudoscience. This philosophical error silences objection and shuts down dialogue by defining disagreement with itself as hateful and anathematizing.

New! Eugenics Is Still with Us
Death in the Name of 'Best Interests'

John Stonestreet
Eugenics is a bad idea, a bad idea that, like all bad ideas, has victims. Efforts to keep those deemed inferior from reproducing or even existing were a central part of the Nazi experiment in Germany, which upended the entire world and led to the extermination of millions of so-called "lives unworthy of life."

New! Measles, Mumps, and Religious Freedom: Mandatory Vaccination and the Limits of Parental Rights

Christopher O. Tollefsen
It is a mark of responsible governance, not authoritarian overreach, for states to act when the demands of public health call for such measures. It is true that the presumption of freedom, religious liberty, and parental authority are all at risk in an increasingly regulatory, secular, and statist culture, but it is an error to see vaccination policy as an essential battleground for defense of these important rights.

I Know the Pain of Being Left by a Gay Husband: An Open Letter to Lauren Pearson

Janna Darnelle
Please know that you are not alone on this journey. There are others who are walking this path. Though it is difficult to navigate and may seem unbearable at times, we have found one that is more than faithful. He is the best provider. He gives strength. He will teach you, guide you, bring order to the chaos, and give justice and mercy. God is going to use the pain you are going through now to bring forth an even greater purpose and mission.

Tragedy or Tissue?
The Contradictory Ways We Talk about the Unborn

John Stonestreet
If it weren't so jarring and tragic, the contradictory laws and language tolerated in our country about abortion would be laughable.

Isn't father loss part of Nikolas Cruz's story?

Carolyn Moynihan
In the wake of last week's mass shooting at a Florida high school America is once again embroiled in a debate about how this could have happened again and how to prevent such horrific behaviour and loss of life.

Iran's demographic collapse

Marcus Roberts
Due to this collapse in fertility rate, there will be in a generation in Iran two elderly dependents for every three workers. At the moment, there are 7 elderly dependents for every 93 workers today. As Goldman states, this decline is "virtually irreversible" and is a "death sentence for a poor country".

Why do some clergy question abstinence in the fight against HIV/AIDS?

John B. Shea
To recommend the condom as a protection against HIV gives a false sense of security, not only in regard to HIV, but also in regard to many other serious diseases, where it provides little or no protection at all.

Contraception: The Tragic Deception

Royce Dunn
Today, I am among the small but growing Protestant minority who deems conception God's domain and contraception a devious intruder. If loss of human life is a major indicator, contraceptives that contain birth control components comprise the most deadly force in history. The Pill (in over 40 varieties), Norplant, Depo-Provera, Prostaglandins, and the solely abortifacient intrauterine devices (IUDs) have, by research estimates, killed in America alone over 150 million unborn citizens after their conception.

Euthanasia and the Silent Pressure to Die

Judie Brown
The ongoing debate regarding assisted suicide (a.k.a. euthanasia) represents a discussion with no clear resolution.

T comes right after LGB

Zac Alstin
Before the year 2000, no US state recognized same-sex marriage. By 2015, it was legal throughout the US and most of Western Europe. Before 2015 most Americans knew nothing about transgender issues. Within a year transgender issues are on the front pages of newspapers every day and schools may be forced to provide special bathrooms for trans students. The pace of change in the sexual revolution is not just rapid. It's accelerating around the world. Why?

Struggling New Jersey Teens: Are They Now Really Better Off?

Frank J. Moncher
The concern being addressed by such legislation is that young people who are struggling with same-sex attraction will be forced by their parents to undergo therapy aimed at changing their sexual inclinations.Presumably, the belief is that these often-distressed youth are better off accepting their current perception and feelings, regardless of their long-term impact, rather than engaging in some perhaps-difficult self-examination which could lead to healing and more fulfilling options for their future. Sadly, the foundation on which the legislation rests is riddled with inaccuracies and assumptions, and lacks thorough discernment of this complex issue.

Homosexuality and the Church Crisis

Brian Clowes
This paper demonstrates that there is indeed a very strong link between male homosexuality and child sexual abuse. It also shows that there is a similar rate of child sexual abuse among other very large groups of adult males (e.g., Protestant clergy, who are usually married), thus proving that celibacy is not the root of the problem - homosexuality is. ... There are many attacking on the Pope specifically and the Roman Catholic Church generally because of the sex abuse crisis. However, these individuals and organizations are not motivated by a desire to enlighten mankind or protect the innocent, since the crisis has already largely subsided, and stringent means have been enacted to prevent the abuse from reoccurring. Rather, the motivation appears to be more one of bigotry and a desire to muzzle and sideline the Church's moral opposition to the "gay rights" movement.
