The Augusta School Department launched an investigation of Toni Richardson after they alleged she “imposed some strong religious/spiritual belief system” towards a coworker. Now, [...]

May 10, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) — Jesuit-run Fordham University has buckled to protests led by an LGBTQ student group and will not allow Chick-fil-A to do business at a campus eatery due to past comments by the chicken fast-food company’s CEO supporting natural marriage.

Doctors in the United States cannot be forced to perform abortions or assist suicides. But that may soon change. Bioethicists and other medical elites have launched a frontal assault against doctors seeking to practice their professions under the values established by the Hippocratic Oath. The campaign’s goal? To force doctors, nurses, pharmacists, and others in the health field who hold pro-life or orthodox religious views to choose between [...]

Edward Sri “So, Dr. Sri, do you think I’m a relativist?” That was the odd question posed to me many years ago at a Catholic convention in the New York City area. I had just finished giving a presentation on moral relativism when an energetic young man chased me down to ask his unusual personal question. “Your talk got me wondering if maybe I’m a relativist. What do you think?” “Well, I don’t really know you,” I replied. “But [...]

A Priest Explains the Hard Truth About Why the Church Is In Decline | ChurchPOP

May 9, 2017 // 1 Comment

I spend a lot of time, reading, and prayer on why the Church is decline in this country. The influx of immigrants from Latin America hides the number decline.

One disappointed commentator called it “woefully inadequate”; a noted religious scholar dismissed it as [...]

Heretical Bishop Poster Boy | The Vortex

This Vortex comes from the diocese of San Diego where the bishop here is perhaps the bishop who is the most out front promoter of heresy and sacrilege in the United States, and that’s really saying something. Many faithful Catholics were concerned when Robert McElroy was named bishop of San Diego, and their fears are being realized. McElroy has publicly stated that divorced and civilly remarried Catholics can receive Holy Communion —a [...]

April 24, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) – Google is continuing its attempts to mainstream the homosexual lifestyle with a 30-second video showing a male couple getting their photogenic children off to grade school. “It’s just more propaganda,” said Gwen Landolt, the head of REAL Women of Canada. “It’s an attempt to normalize same-sex relationships using children as props. But it is not normal and what they are not telling you is that it is not [...]
