  • Biden Taps Heterodox Catholic to Represent US at Vatican

    Biden Taps Heterodox Catholic to Represent US at Vatican Joe Donnelly is Biden’s idea of a sound Catholic. In early October, Joe Biden nominated Joe Donnelly, a former Indiana Senator, to serve as his ambassador to the Vatican. News coverage of the nomination has been misleading. “Biden nominates pro-life Democrat Donnelly as new Vatican ambassador,” says National Catholic Reporter. Donnelly is not pro-life, at least not in any consistent sense. “He has voted with Planned Parenthood Action Fund 67 percent of the time since he’s been in Congress,” reported the Indianapolis Star in 2018.Like Biden, Donnelly is a Democrat first...

    Biden Judges Will Eviscerate Religious FreedomCan the First Amendment survive under this regime?“I think we’re seeing a common DNA run through the Obama [judicial] nominees, and that’s the ACLU chromosome,” observed Jeff Sessions, then-senator from Alabama, in 2009. Sessions was right. Obama stacked the courts with ACLU-style secularists. The First Amendment took a beating under their misrule.Obama’s first nominee to the courts, David Hamilton, was an ACLU board member whose previous rulings included telling the Indiana legislature that its prayers could mention “Allah” but not Jesus Christ. Another typical Obama appointment to the courts was Michael Urbanski, a Virginia judge...

    [Catholic Caucus] What St. Junipero Serra shows about Eucharistic coherenceWhat does an 18th-century Franciscan missionary have to do with a 21st-century debate about abortion and communion? Bear with me, and I’ll explain.First let me make a confession. I’ve been working full-time as a Catholic journalist for nearly 40 years now, and I still don’t know what bishops do all day.Oh, I don’t mean that quite literally. I know what fills the hours: meetings, mostly. I’ve even seen some bishops’ daily schedules. Running a diocese, like running any large organization, requires a lot of time and effort.But what are they doing...

    Analysis: The Communion Controversy Could be Far Greater Than Just Pro-Abortion PoliticiansCanon 915 of the Code of Canon Law states that those “obstinately persevering in manifest grave sin are not to be admitted to holy communion.” WASHINGTON — Once again, U.S. bishops are debating whether to apply the canonical penalty of denying Communion to unrepentantly pro-abortion Catholic politicians.While this conversation has been occurring for years within the conference, what is new is that some bishops are now framing this discussion within the broader topic of general worthiness to receive Holy Communion. Catholics in general, they argue—not just pro-abortion politicians—need...

    Ruth Bader Ginsburg dismantled a controversial Louisiana abortion bill during an hour of arguments at the US Supreme Court this week, systematically striking down components of the law she previously opposed during a preliminary vote. The 86-year-old Supreme Court justice seemed to aggressively push back against demands from lawyers representing the Trump administration and state of Louisiana to approve the legislation during Wednesday’s arguments. “If the woman has a problem, it will be her local hospital that she will need to go to for the care, not something 30 miles from the clinic, which does not have a necessary relationship...

    On Wednesday, after the Virginia Senate deadlocked 20-20 on a bill repealing several modest abortion restrictions in the state, Democratic Lieutenant Governor Justin Fairfax cast a tie-breaking vote to pass the legislation. Senate Bill 733 would remove Virginia’s requirement that only doctors may perform abortion in order to allow physicians assistants and nurse practitioners to perform abortions. The bill would also repeal the section of Virginia law requiring a woman seeking an abortion to receive the following information 24 hours before an abortion:

    September 9, 2015 (LepantoInstitute) -- In light of the recent videos exposing Planned Parenthood’s trafficking of the organs and tissues of preborn babies, the Lepanto Institute interviewed former satanic High Wizard, Zachary King. Zachary was an average boy from an American neighborhood who grew up in a Baptist home. He began practicing magick at 10, joined a satanic coven at 13, and had broken all 10 Commandments by the time he was 15 years old. From his teen years to adulthood he worked his way up to High Wizard in the coven and actively pushed satan’s agenda including ritualistic abortions....

    Back in the old days, abortion enthusiasts used to say that killing a baby should be "safe, legal, and rare." The idea was that abortion should be a last resort. They didn't want to seem too bloodthirsty, but they still wanted to keep the door open in case you really, really need that kid dead. Well, forget about all that. The ruse is over. The veil has been torn away. Now the 2nd-place contender in the Democratic Party's 2020 presidential race is flatly calling for abortion on demand, and he's even citing the United States Constitution to back him up....

    Kentucky voters had a clear choice in the gubernatorial race when it comes to abortion politics today. And in the end the pro-life governor who served women and unborn children so proudly went home in defeat to a Democrat who fundraised with an abortionist. Republican Gov. Matt Bevin has a strong pro-life record by defending unborn babies and cracking down on abortion businesses for not following the law. His opponent, Democrat Andy Beshear, has a radical pro-abortion stance. As state attorney general, he refused to defend a Kentucky law that protects unborn babies from abortions after 20 weeks. Voters unfortunately...

    Sen. Bernie Sanders says American taxpayers should fund programs in “poor countries” to help women get abortions. During a CNN town hall event in which Sanders and other Democrats r discussed plans to combat climate change, an audience member asked: “Human population growth has more than doubled in the past 50 years. The planet cannot sustain this growth. I realize this is a poisonous topic for politicians, but it’s crucial to face. Empowering women and educating everyone on the need to curb population growth seems a reasonable campaign to enact. Would you be courageous enough to discuss this issue and...

    After being on the job for only nine months, CEO Leana Wen was abruptly fired this week. While Len claims to have been "blind sided" by the move, Planned Parenthood spokesperson Adora Slaughter insisted the firing "should not have been a surprise. The number of abortions we've performed has gone down on her watch. Several states have enacted severe restrictions on abortions performed after a fetal heartbeat is detected. The final straw was Wen's assertion that only women can get pregnant and have abortions. This effectively undermines our opportunity to make up for lost business by performing abortions on trans-gender...

    Illinois Gov. J.B. Pritzker on Wednesday is expected to sign into law the Reproductive Health Act, which he said would make his state the most progressive on the issue. The measure, which lawmakers said codifies existing practices, removes restrictions on abortions later in one's pregnancy and any criminal penalties for physicians who perform them, according to ABC Chicago station WLS. The new law also repeals Illinois' partial birth ban and the state's 1975 abortion act, in addition to expanding insurance coverage for procedures and for contraception.

    If pro-lifers are going to oppose the killing of unborn children, we are told over and over again, then we must be willing to take care of these children and their families even after they’re born. And since we don’t, it’s widely assumed and repeated, we have no right to oppose abortion. As if this line of argument wasn’t repeated enough, it’s become especially popular in the wake of the new anti-abortion laws in Alabama, Georgia, Ohio, and now Missouri. For example, a recent political cartoon by Nick Anderson depicts pro-lifers gazing in awe at a pregnant woman’s belly and...
