    The Irish president has signed two abortion bills into effect in Ireland, as well as laws allowing same-sex 'marriage' and easier access to divorce.VATICAN CITY (LifeSiteNews) – Pope Francis said Friday he thanks God “that Ireland has such a wise man as its Head (of State)”, despite Irish President Michael D. Higgins’ support for a range of anti-life and anti-family laws that run contrary to the Catholic faith. The Roman Pontiff was meeting with Higgins in the Vatican this morning when, during their formal photocall, he told those gathered that “today, I did not just meet a man, a president;...
  • The Devious Bad Will of Vatican II’s “Men of Good Will”

    The Devious Bad Will of Vatican II’s “Men of Good Will”Faithful Catholics have penned mountains of books and articles describing the infiltration of the Catholic Church leading up to Vatican II and the seemingly unlimited anti-Catholic fruits that have followed. As the picture of treachery and incompetence becomes clearer, more Catholics have (properly) started to evaluate Vatican II in light of tradition instead of evaluating the Church’s pre-Vatican II history entirely in light of the Council. Unfortunately, the picture is still as complex as it is unpleasant. For better or worse, though, we can get a surprisingly accurate glimpse of...

    Pope Francis has ended his trip to Slovakia by speaking out on abortion and same-sex marriage. During his flight back to Rome he said "abortion is homicide". But he backed away from denying communion to politicians who support abortion rights. He also spoke about marriage and said it is a sacrament between a man and woman, but added that same-sex civil unions are good and helpful to many people. The pontiff said the Catholic Church “doesn’t have the power to change a sacrament as it was instituted by the Lord”, but he supported civil laws that try to help “those...

    It’s never happened before in the history of the sport, but according to Tom Brady the concept of playing in the NFL at age 50 doesn’t seem difficult. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have their iconic quarterback hosting the Tommy & Gronky show with tight end Rob Gronkowski, where the two answer what is supposed to be “the internet’s most searched questions.” Most of the topics fall short of what’s actually trending on Google, but Gronk put Brady under a little bit of pressure with one of the questions. “Can Tom Brady play until 50 years old?” the tight end read....
  • Benedict XVI: Legalization of Same-Sex Marriage is ‘a Distortion of Conscience’

    Pope emeritus Benedict XVI has said that the legalization of same-sex marriage in many countries is “a distortion of conscience” which has also entered some Catholic circles. In an introduction to a new anthology of his writings on Europe, Benedict XVI said that “with the legalization of ‘same-sex marriage’ in 16 European countries, the issue of marriage and family has taken on a new dimension that cannot be ignored.” “We are witnessing a distortion of conscience which has evidently penetrated deeply into sectors of the Catholic people,” the pope emeritus wrote. “This cannot be answered with some small moralism or...

    (Reuters) - Health insurer Aetna Inc has been sued for allegedly discriminating against beneficiaries that are lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and other gender identity iterations (LGBT+) by requiring them to pay more out of pocket for fertility treatments. In a proposed class action filed Monday in federal court in Manhattan, plaintiff Emma Goidel said she and her spouse were forced to spend nearly $45,000 for fertility treatments as a result of Aetna's policy, which required same-sex couples to pay for fertility treatment out of pocket before becoming eligible for coverage.

    In many ways, communities have never felt lonelier. While many of us recognize this, we’re so busy juggling jobs, kids and life, that we often don’t know our neighbours beyond a simple wave from the front door. We might chat with them on social media groups or see them at a store or two, but what they’re dealing with behind closed doors remains a mystery. Six years ago, when we pulled up into our home’s driveway for the first time and started unloading boxes from the car, our new neighbours had no idea just how much our family would change...

    New research has found that people living with HIV have a higher risk of sudden cardiac death than those who are not living with HIV, according to the American Heart Association. The findings, published Wednesday in the group’s Journal of the American Heart Association, examined more than 120,000 veterans in the U.S. living and not living with HIV. Those with HIV had a 14 percent higher risk of sudden cardiac death. That number shot to 57 percent or 70 percent for veterans with high viral loads of HIV. The 70 percent came from people with HIV whose blood tests showed...

    HUDSON, Ohio — A book intended to prepare Hudson High School students for college now has parents in an uproar. They said the contents of the book are inappropriate for their children and now, they’re demanding reform and transparency from the school board. “Write a sex scene you wouldn't show your mom. Rewrite the sex scene from above into one that you let your mom read. Describe your favorite part of a man's body using only verbs,” said parent Monica Haven. Those are some of the writing prompts found inside the book, '642 Things to Write About.' Until Monday, that...

It is currently in its 28th season, Power Rangers: Dino Fury. In a scene from an upcoming episode (which was originally viewable in a tweet that has since been made private) that has aired in...

    China’s mouthpiece Global Times has labeled Hungarian-born American billionaire George Soros a “global economic terrorist” in a tit for tat exchange playing out in dueling op-eds that underscore the rising temperature in US-China relations. The article, published on September 4 and without citing any evidence, accused the hedge fund manager and philanthropist of providing finance to Hong Kong’s jailed newspaper owner Jimmy Lai to support the city’s anti-Beijing protests in 2019. Soon thereafter, Soros penned an op-ed for the Wall Street Journal that said New York-based BlackRock’s recent 6.7 billion yuan (US$1 billion) mutual fund investment in China was a...

    Pope Francis urged Hungary on Sunday to “extend its arms towards everyone,” in a veiled critique of Prime Minister Viktor Orbán’s anti-migrant policies, as the pontiff opened a four-day visit to Central Europe in his first big international outing since undergoing intestinal surgery in July. […] Francis spent just seven hours in Budapest before arriving Sunday afternoon in neighboring Slovakia to start a four-day tour. The lopsided itinerary suggested that Francis wanted to avoid giving Orbán — the type of populist nationalist he frequently criticizes — the political boost that comes with hosting a pope for a proper state visit...
