At the 12:10 Mass at St. Peter’s Church on Capitol Hill, the pastor suggested that St. Peter Chrysologus, whose feast we celebrate today (July 30), may have just loved Twitter; he is known for his short, inspired sermons.

Today Nancy Pelosi Is Explaining the ‘Birds and the Bees’

Unfortunately, she’s not making much sense. And she’s fumbling with war on women talking points used to dismiss pressing religious-liberty concerns when the issue at hand in Wendy Davis and Planned Parenthood vs. Texas’s new law is the human rights of babies at 20 weeks and older.
