Church Militant's Paul Murano points to some reasons why that might be the case. Despite Joe Biden's job approval tanking among just about every demographic, he's still popular among Catholics. A new poll reveals Catholics' overall approval of Biden dropped from 56% to 46% since this time last year. Among Hispanic Catholics, Biden's approval rating was 74% last year and dropped to 64% a year later. It's higher than any other Christian group other than Black Protestants. The...

    HERSHEY, Pennsylvania (LifeSiteNews) ­– The Hershey Company recently fired several unvaccinated workers who sought religious exemptions from the COVID-19 jab mandate, in some cases citing Pope Francis’ support for the abortion-tainted vaccines. Office workers interviewed by The Epoch Times said that the company subjected them to months of meetings pressuring them to get jabbed, as well as invasive questions about their faith and personal lives that some described as “interrogation.” “I really thought I’d be OK,” said Kim Durham, a sourcing buyer and payment analyst who left Hershey in January. “I thought, you cannot question my faith. Nobody can question...

EDMONTON, Alberta (LifeSiteNews) — If there was a shred of hope in our Catholic hierarchy left, a recent homily from the Archbishop of Edmonton annihilated it. Our Canadian Catholic leaders are completely out-of-touch with reality. They don’t know the people they are meant to shepherd. They don’t even seem to attempt to understand the working class. They are elitists, as dogmatic and hypocritical as Pharisees. The reading for Sunday...
