Where Religious Freedom Flourishes, So Do Women

A happened upon this piece while Googling St. Elizabeth Ann Seton earlier. I almost titled this post The Little Sisters of the Poor Are Women, Too. Seton is a timely saint to celebrate!

What’s Religious Freedom to the White House?

FFF-eng

The above is a good and honest question, if you’ve been watching the Obama administration. Look away, they said, during the campaign. What they’ve communicated might be best summed up and translated for transparency: We’re all about “women” and their “reproductive health” rights and “health care” and, oh, by the way, if we and our [Read More...]

This Is the Priesthood

I wrote over on my mothership, National Review Online, today about the ridiculous but important controversy — a warning bell — at George Washington University over a chaplain at the Catholic Newman Center there who is, as it turns out, Catholic!
