There’s an Alabama Supreme Court Justice Laser-Focused on Overturning Roe v. Wade (and It’s Not Roy Moore)

There’s a fundamentalist Christian judge on the Alabama Supreme Court who has every intention of being a judicial activist. He believes the Bible matters more than the Constitution when it comes to law.

And he’s not Chief Justice Roy Moore.

Rumors of a Vatican Reversal on Contraception Are Highly Exaggerated

The headlines are optimistic:

“Pope Francis adviser hints at rethink on contraception ban” (The Telegraph)

“Pope in battle to win acceptance for contraception, divorcees, and annulments” (Irish Central)

“Vatican might OK contraception” (Joe. My. God)

Dig a little deeper into the story, though, and the truth is a lot less exciting. As is often the case, a well-known Vatican official says something off-the-cuff and the media, not always able to provide context, reads into it more than is actually there.
