Prayer Request

A reader writes: Please ask God to not let me lose my job. I’ve fallen behind and need assistance being lifted up, to excel at my skills, and to do my job well. I pray for help. I don’t want to lose my job. I’m at fault, but ask God not only his pardon, but [Read More...]

#lovewince: Our Chattering Class and Incest Apologias get right to work publishing this “daring” apologia for Daddy/Daughter incest. And, given the murky sexual libertarianism of SCOTUS, there is absolutely no argument beyond “EW!” to prevent trampling down this taboo like all the others. When consent is the sole criterion of the good, who the hell are you to burden two (or [Read More...]

Thoughts After a Conversation with Dr. Robert P. George

So last week, Dr. Robert George contacted me and asked if I’d be interested in doing an interview/conversation about Laudato Si.  That sounded great to me, so I sat down and read through it slowly (resulting in a ton of live-blogging about it last week, which you may have noticed).  Yesterday we had our conversation [Read More...]

What Gay “Marriage” Does…
