Values, Acts of Torture, and Obama

Though we may hear news stories that disturb us, let us not lose perspective. There are stories we rarely hear, stories of torture that happens every day in our country. We cannot forget the tiny cries that come from mouths that have been silenced all too soon.

Caring for the Dying Means Not Intentionally Killing Them

Caring for a sick or dying loved one is stressful and confusing in itself, but add the stressors of dealing with a doctor or hospital who may not have the patient's best interests at heart, and it becomes even more traumatic. Questions abound and answers must be sought. But where to begin?

Archbishop Blase about Sacrilege

Receiving the body of Christ nourishes the mind, body, and soul. Communion must be received with reverence and upon a soul free from mortal sin. Our clergy cannot take this responsibility lightly and must teach the importance of this from the pulpit. For if they do not, who will?

False Narratives a Pox on America

We've heard a lot about excessive force lately. But, in reality, those who fight day in and day out for preborn babies know all too well another meaning of excessive force. We see each and every day the slaughter of countless babies, yet this lawful practice is allowed to continue. What can be worse than excessive force perpetrated upon the smallest and most innocent of all?

'I can't breathe': The plight of the preborn

This past year has seen race relations decline as a result of a well-orchestrated attempt by a corrupt government that wants to divide us at all costs. And the propaganda peddlers known as the news media are making it more obvious than ever that they get most of their talking points from the Obama administration.

Babies, Plan B, and Abortion

In many things in life it's prudent to have a backup plan-a contingency for when things may not go as you had hoped or expected. Such is not the case when it comes to the life of a child. This child, created in the image and likeness of God, is a human being from the very moment he is created. Emergency contraception can take his life. And that is no backup plan.

The Big Scare in Obamacare

The Doggie in the Window, the Baby in the Grave

Some things in life are difficult to understand, but the fact that a baby lives and grows inside his mother is not one of those things. What is difficult to understand is why hundreds of thousands of people have cried out about the life of one dog. Where is the outcry for the thousands of babies killed every day? Where are our priorities?

Pediatricians Suggest Kids No Different than Fido

Hypocrisy and Zero Tolerance Policies

Our culture has become one of violence - violence toward women, toward children, and toward innocent preborn babies. This disregard for human life and the well-being of others is disturbing, and a trend we must right before our society falls deeper into the chasm of self-destruction.

Death Peddlers Have No Shame

Those who kill preborn babies may have no shame, but we who fight to give voice to these innocent children certainly do. We watch in horror as minute after minute, day after day, and week after week, babies are killed and discarded. The trail of blood is sickening - and it's a trail that we must work unceasingly to stop.

Making a Choice: Defend the Family or Defend Evil

Sometimes we hear or see things that leave us incredulous. Such an experience happened to me recently when LifeSiteNews reported that a Catholic bishop in France issued a statement in opposition to those who oppose the legalization of same-sex marriage. The bishop is reported to have claimed that such demonstrations perpetrated "violence against homosexuals."

Cardinal Dolan's Pink Shamrock

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.

America's Fear of Children

We witness today a growing trend toward love of self and disdain for those who get in the way of self - be they children, the infirm, or the elderly. Our "me" society seems to be losing the vision of a healthy, happy family, and instead focusing on hedonistic pleasures geared at destroying the family. If we continue in this fashion, the loudest sound we will hear will be the weeping of souls.

Propaganda Film Humanizes Slaughtering Children

Abortion is a horrifying, tragic act that takes the life of a child who depended on his mother to care for him. Instead, his life is literally torn apart. A new PBS movie airing this holiday weekend attempts to humanize the monsters responsible for this slaughter. What can we do about this?

Miscarriage: The Heartbreak and the Lies

Suffering the loss of a child through miscarriage is a tragedy that evokes a great sadness. The direct killing of a child through abortion is also a tragedy. Knowing that some Planned Parenthoods now refer to an abortion as a "voluntary miscarriage" is sickening and further compounds the heartbreak of losing a child.

Ignorant Slaves

Our society has devolved to a place of entitlement and selfishness - a place where people feel we should get what we want when we want it no matter what. And if this object of our desire is not exactly as we wish, we just throw it away. Sadly, this includes innocent little babies.

Another Georgetown Outrage

What has happened to childhood? What has happened to respect for families and their abilities to teach children morality? And why should an institute, let alone a Catholic institute, recommend introducing concepts and material regarding sexuality to very young children? It boggles the mind and sickens the soul. Instead of forcing our children to grow up so fast, we should be encouraging them to enjoy their childhoods and preparing them for a life with Christ.

Mothers against Children

In our selfish world, we see motherhood scoffed at, we see babies thought of with disdain and discarded. We see people show more concern for the well-being of animals than for human life. It's a sickness that has slowly crept into the mindsets of people - young and old - and it's a sickness we must find a cure for if we are ever going to break this cycle and make people understand that the lives of all human beings are sacred.

Planned Parenthood and Tuskegee -- No Difference

It used to be said that it takes a village to raise a child. And it was not only comforting, but the norm, for people other than parents to watch out for children, no matter who they were. Not so the case today, where we see a vile and indecent organization attempting to lure children away from parents and into a life of immorality.

Horror, Exile, and Death

Atrocities against human beings occur every day worldwide. Often we hear an outcry when an offense is especially egregious.

I Am Not a Rug!

Animals, especially those that are threatened or endangered, deserve our care and protection. But we must not close our eyes to humanity-to life that grows within a woman's womb.

God Is Not Welcome Here

Like a small child who tells his parent, "I can do it myself," man has repeatedly pushed God away. We seem to be telling God the same thing, yet it's not just independence we want from Him; it's autonomy and control. We are telling God we have no use for Him any longer. We now see the destruction this causes - in lives, in families, in society. When will it end?

Rushing the Innocent to Die

The culture of death is increasingly prevalent in today's society and around the world. It can be seen in the lack of respect and dignity shown for preborn babies, for the sick, and for the dying. But this need not be the case. For those who do not have voices, we must speak. For those who do have voices, we must augment them so they are heard. Life is precious. Life is a gift. It is not for us to take away from anyone.

Wireless Birth Control Is No Fantasy

Destroying Innocence One Child at a Time

On a daily basis, we see the innocence of children eroded. Television, Internet articles, and social media combine to allow children to enter a world of sexualization at an earlier age---and adults and parents just seem to accept this. Indeed, even some embrace it and welcome it into their schools and their homes. When will we realize the damage we are doing? When will we say enough is enough?

Mother Mary: Planned Parenthood's Nemesis

Just as an earthly mother takes care of her children, so does our Blessed Mother. She is there for us in times of sadness, in times of despair, and in times of happiness as well.

Peacefully and prayerfully protesting, while asking for the intercession of our Blessed Mother, has borne fruits we never could have imagined.

Tolerance as Moral Principle

It seems to be the mantra of today's society that we are told to be tolerant and to just accept the changes in morality that occur almost daily. Belief in God's commandments is scoffed at. Holding fast to faith is looked down upon. When we allow morality to fade away and tolerance to take over, the face of God is obscured and His teachings lost. The result is a society also lost-a society aching and hurting.

Stop Big Abortion

Big Abortion flourishes because not all human beings are valued. Big Abortion flourishes because a preborn baby's life is not given the respect it deserves.

A Planned Parenthood Parable

Planned Parenthood tries with all its might to persuade people to its side, to lead them to think and believe that there is nothing wrong with aborting a child. The organization has even brought in "clergy" to attempt to justify its own agenda. Planned Parenthood does not want you to know the truth. In fact, PP is scared that you will find out the truth.

Misery and Joy in a Lost City

In a city that's gone bankrupt and is riddled with violence, it's easy to get lost in hopelessness. But one organization wants to change this.

The Death Penalty and Justice for All

The skewed view of injustice in our country should make everyone take a step back and look hard at what it truly means to value the dignity of each and every human being.

As a society, we are pushing God further and further away from us. We put our faith in science when we should be putting it in God. We are even allowing science to take the place of God.

When a Human Being Is Not

For those of us who realize the truth - that life begins the moment a child is created - arguments suggesting otherwise are inane. When we hear the assertion that a human being is not alive until he is born - despite his beating heart, moving limbs, functioning organs, and so on - we wonder how anyone could believe this lie. The fundamental right to life is denied every second of every day in America because of this lie and we must not allow this insanity to continue.

Deconstructing God's Plan

Love the sinner, hate the sin. That is something we are taught from the time we are children. But, in today's society, we are now taught to tolerate the sin, embrace the sin, or even advocate for the sin. If we dare to mention that a type of behavior is sinful, we are castigated and branded intolerant. As we regularly see, Catholic clergy often do not give voice to God's word and God's will. Consequently, we now live in a society where it is the peoples' will that rules. Why have we silenced God?

It's Judgmental, Hateful, and Intolerant!

It seems that, lately, those who agree that abortion is a woman's choice are the only ones who are allowed to speak out.

But we cannot stop using our voices, for the people we speak for do not have voices yet. They are the ones being slaughtered. And we are the ones who must protect them.

Sorry, Baby, You Don't Exist!

Spilled coffee, ice having to be scraped off of a windshield, and a fender bender on the way to work - all are scenarios that cause inconvenience or that we wish hadn't happened. But, just because we didn't intend for them to happen, does that mean they don't exist? Of course not. So why, when a baby is created - intentionally or unintentionally - do people think of him as nothing more than an inconvenience? How can a baby's life be likened to something like one of the scenarios above? And how can people have the audacity to think that no life exists when one clearly does?
