    Big Apple abortion protestors were in support of a sex strike Saturday — as “abstinence” started trending on Twitter in the wake of the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade.“If you’re a man who won’t get a vasectomy, even though it’s reversible, and you’re not out in the streets fighting for my rights, you do not deserve to have sex with me,” Brianna Campbell, a 24-year-old EMT, told The Post.

    This beer is dirty! Pabst Blue Ribbon took a bizarre stance Monday against those abstaining from drinking this month, tweeting — and then deleting — “Not drinking this January? Try eating ass.” When someone on Twitter asked the company what the tweet against “Dry January” was about, it said “it’s about ass and eating it.” The tweet went viral, as users expressed their shock the official brand would use such crass language to discuss those trying to cut back their alcohol intake in the New Year.

    DALLAS, TX—As new restrictions on abortion go into effect in Texas, more and more concerned residents are speaking out about their loss of abortion access. We caught up with Dallas resident Debbie Woods to discuss the impact of the new law on her life. “I probably get four or five abortions a year, so this will definitely impact me directly,” Woods said. "I just can't have a kid right now. I’m sleeping over at a different guy’s house like five nights a week. Nobody’s going to want to hook up with me if I’ve got a baby in tow!” Woods...

    ROME – A top Vatican official in charge of organizing a major symposium on the priesthood next year has said the discussion will touch on several controversial hot-button issues such as priestly celibacy, the women’s diaconate, clericalism, and the clerical sexual abuse crisis. Speaking to journalists during the April 12 presentation of the event, Canadian Cardinal Marc Ouellet said, “the question of celibacy is important.” “We have all spoken about it, and it will be discussed, but it will not be the central theme of the symposium,” he said. “It is not a symposium on celibacy, like it needs to...

    [Catholic Caucus] Two bishops’ advice to Catholics in Lenten crisis: Eat meat on Fridays The bishop of Boston and the bishop of Metuchen, N.J. declared to their flocks that Lenten abstinence from meat on Fridays is no longer binding. March 27, 2020 (CatholicCulture.org) — Another week dominated by news about the CO19 epidemic; another week without access to the sacraments. These are distressful times, and we are facing troubles that we could not have imagined, even a few weeks ago. As this troubled week moved toward a close, a couple of headlines truly looked surreal: Bishops advising Catholics to ease...

    I don’t recall ever hearing of British musician Blythe Pepino before now, but she’s in the news because she started a movement encouraging people to pledge not to have children because of climate change. If that sentence leaves you scratching your head, don’t look to me for any answers. I’ve read this entire article at CNN twice now and I’m still not sure what she’s on about. There’s something about the carbon cost of every additional human being, combined with the idea that the Earth is ending in eleven years or something. Check it out for yourself. Climate change is...

    FULL TITLE: Alyssa Milano calls for women across America to go on a 'sex strike' until Georgia's controversial anti-abortion 'heartbeat bill' is overturned Alyssa Milano has called for all women to go on a 'sex strike' until a controversial anti-abortion law in Georgia has been repealed. Milano, 46, who was instrumental in the #MeToo movement, called on her vast social media following to abstain from sex until the restrictive abortion law - dubbed the 'heartbeat bill' - is overturned. The heartbeat bill makes it illegal for women to have an abortion after a heartbeat has been detected in the womb...

    Fighting for the lives of the unborn and the empowerment of their mothers against a billion-dollar industry can be exhausting. Every day is literally a fight between life and death and while the pro-life movement has had some wins, over 3,000 abortions are still happening every day in this nation. It’s intense. It’s emotional. And some days it can be disheartening. Today is not one of those days. Liberal Hollywood actress and activist, Alyssa Milano, has come up with a brilliant idea to promote her agenda of women having complete control over their bodies and of course, abortion access for...

    In a very candid interview for Vogue, Justin Bieber explained that he abstained from sex for one year, wanting to get closer to God. He also said that he and his new wife Hailey Baldwin saved sex for marriage, which is one reason they got married so quickly. Not surprisingly, his interview has generated a torrent of comments, both positive and negative, including an article critical of Bieber’s call to abstinence. But why get mad at him for encouraging self-control? Why criticize a positive example? Or is his example really positive? On the conservative Christian side, it’s easy to throw...

    RUSH: This is The Daily Wire. “Pro-Abortion Women Start ‘Sex Strike’ To Save ‘Roe v. Wade.” My question is this: Will anybody notice if these babes stop having sex? Will anybody notice? Maybe Harvey Weinstein, but beyond that, would anybody notice that these women are having a sex strike? And what is this? A sex strike to save Roe v. Wade? I’m trying to figure out how this actually works. Martin Sheen and Alec Baldwin have offered a tremendous sacrifice. A 24-hour food strike to protest Trump’s immigration policy. Twenty-four hour food strike. Martin Sheen is the guy that used...

    Fake news is alive and well -- and thriving on the pages of America's biggest newspapers. No wonder more people are tuning out the media. They don't trust it. And outlets like the New York Times aren't giving them any reason to try. At some point, the Times's editorial board must have gotten together and decided to reprint every lie ever told about abstinence education. The result was May 5th's work of fiction, a breathtakingly dishonest, 602-word crime scene of journalism that justifies America's growing distrust of the press. About the only thing that was accurate about the column was...

    22-year-old was living in West Hollywood, hoping to launch his acting career. Los Angeles had a thriving a gay scene where King, for the first time, could embrace his sexuality freely. He frequented bathhouses and also met men in dance clubs and along the bustling sidewalks. There was lots of sex to be had. Like a few years earlier, the doctor gave him a handful of antibiotics to take for a few days that would clear up the infection. It wasn't a big deal. In fact, as King describes it, it was "simply an errand to run." ... When King...

    The Trump administration rolled out its new sex education priorities this week with an emphasis on abstinence and other sexual risk avoidance strategies. The Title X grant application, released Friday, prioritizes the types of programs that the abortion chain Planned Parenthood and other abortion groups do not offer. Planned Parenthood has been criticized repeatedly for promoting risky sexual behavior to students and young adults. Politico reports the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services will offer $260 million in Title X grants to qualified health care providers. Here’s more from the report.....

    The key to healthy high schoolers might be where no one was looking: the bedroom! In last year's report from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), officials made it clear that teaching kids to save sex for marriage might just spare them from a long list of other health risks. Students in grades 9-12 who made positive decisions about sex were just as likely (or more!) to avoid other dangerous behaviors.That's great news for parents, who were thrilled with the government's announcement that more kids were postponing intimacy than ever before. For years, moms and dads of both parties have...

    Well! I look back and I realize that last month, I passed an 'abstinent anniversary" making this my twelve year of being chaste since breaking up with my boyfriend at age 21. I decided then and there to abstain from sex until marriage and I have faithfully kept that vow. It's been twelve years of major changes and my remaining non-sexually active has been a mainstay throughout those changes.

    Sam Wei, a 26-year-old financial analyst in Chicago, has not had sex since her last relationship ended 18 months ago. She makes out with guys sometimes, and she likes to cuddle. “To me, there’s more intimacy with having someone there next to you that you can rely on without having to have sex,” she said. “I don’t want to do anything that would harm the relationship and be something that we can’t come back from.” Sam Wei, 26, finds “intellectual conversation more stimulating and more pleasurable than having sex sometimes.” (Courtesy of Sam Wei) It’s a less sexy time to...

    If you want to understand the catastrophe of education during the Obama administration, a new book by Dr. Peter Wood, president of the National Association of Scholars, is a must-read. His book is entitled "Drilling Through the Core: Why Common Core Is Bad for American Education." Common Core is the education fad that swept the nation with the deceptive slogan "higher standards." Everyone is for "higher standards," right? Who could possibly object to higher standards for all our kids? As Dr. Wood explains, though, the word "higher" did not mean higher intellectual content of the standards, but a higher percentage...
  • Lent, 2016 - Fasting on ALL Fridays and Lent

    Fasting on ALL Fridays and Lent There is some question raised about my strong words (later in this article) regarding one who knowingly and willingly rejects Canon 1251. Some Catholics have attempted to convince me that not observing some sort of fast from some sort of food on all Fridays of the year does not constitute a sin. One has stated it is not a major precept, so "breaking" it is not sinful. This confuses and concerns me. How can any Catholic knowingly and willingly reject ANY precept laid out in Canon Law and not have it be a...

    Tim Tebow recently split with girlfriend Olivia Culpo — a former Miss USA model — and the reason is said to be the former Broncos quarterback’s abstinence pledge. Yes, that’s right, folks. You now live in a culture where a girl doesn’t want a man who respects her enough to wait until he is ready to commit to her, faithfully for life, and not just use her body for his own personal pleasure. Sports media, as you might expect, had a field day mocking Tebow and his desire to please God with his sexuality. From NewsBusters: Tim Tebow’s relationship with...
