    Our Action Required - Another Actual Priest Thrown Under The Bus In The Archdiocese Of WashingtonThanks to Canon 212, I became aware of this situation in La Plata, MD.

Let that sink in for a moment. The student was being bullied in a Catholic school for being pro-life. The parents of the bullies didn't take too kindly to Father putting a stop to the marauding of...

And so, it was.Joe Biden is an enemy of the Catholic faith. This fact must be repeated as often as humanly possible. Joe Biden holds himself out as a faithful Catholic, yet he does not believe in the faith’s fundamental teachings about...
