Taxpayers Are Paying The Tab For Obamacare's Elective Abortions
Of the 18 issuers of QH plans interviewed by the GAO, not one bothered to collect a separate premium for the plan’s abortion surcharge and not one bothered to list the abortion surcharge on premium invoices, leaving enrollees unaware that a portion of their premiums are going directly to pay for others’ abortions.

Protecting Marriage Isn’t Enough – We Must Oppose Gay ‘civil Unions’ Too
Philippe Ariño is a non-practising homosexual. As a Catholic, he advocates chastity, denouncing both homosexualist activism and the modern concept of “heterosexuality,” insofar as sexual union should only take place between a man and a woman in accordance with God’s plan for life-long marriage.

Abortion… The Secret Shame (Part One)
Words are hard to type this morning as I read and re-read the post by Dyanne Gonzales. The memorial service in remembrance of aborted children she attended in Albuquerque, New Mexico brought tears to my eyes once again. So much so I decided to share some of my journey and how I became a pro life speaker.

GAO Report Confirms Obama Lied: 1,036 ObamaCare Plans Pay For Abortions

Premarital Sex Is A Mortal Sin
We live in times in which many call good or “no big deal” what God calls sinful.

New! Cardinal Dolan's Pink Shamrock

Judie Brown
The beautiful green shamrock is equated with Irish pride no matter where one goes, and on March 17, St. Patrick's Day, the "wearin' of the green" has always been so much fun that even those of us who are not Irish love being Irish for the day. But March 17, 2015, will be different - at least in New York City - thanks to the politically correct Catholic cardinal Timothy Dolan.

Love in a time of unreality

Robert R. Reilly
If people are ruled by their passions - and they rationalize their passion as "love" - they can only understand opposition to it in the form of another passion, hate - as opposed to their "love."

Dorian himself is visibly unscathed, though the novel's fatal climax exposes a soul rendered ugly by a life of egoistic debauchery.

Internet can foster crime or addiction, but weigh remedies carefully

Denyse O’Leary
Recently, I mentioned a conflict between people who want the government to do something about cyberbullying that can lead to suicide and people who worry about the fact that it would give both private companies and governments access to vast amounts of personal user information. It's one of those dilemmas where the fact that everyone has a reasonable concern does not automatically suggest a solution.

Horror, Exile, and Death

Judie Brown
Atrocities against human beings occur every day worldwide. Often we hear an outcry when an offense is especially egregious. But what could be more egregious than the wanton slaughtering of innocent babies or than the premature death of those who are ill? Let us examine the actions, or the inactions, of our daily lives. Souls are at stake.
