Friar's Chapel, St. Vincent Ferrer Church/BestBudBrian/WikimediaCommons

In just a few hours, you and I -- from wherever we are, on the planet -- have the opportunity to meet each other in the Holy Eucharist, and to together plead before the most Merciful Christ Jesus, for all of those who have been touched by the Culture of Death, throughout the world.This is a privilege of spirit and mystery. In her capacity as a member of the cardinal's pro-life commission, Kathryn Jean Lopez has managed to very quickly organize a special Holy Hour of Reparation, Healing and … [Read more...]

Barron on “Death of God & Loss of Human Dignity”

Screen capture from this video

[This piece was written before today's release of a third, very graphic video - Admin]by Bishop-elect Robert BarronI am sure by now that many of you have seen the appalling hidden-camera videos of two Planned Parenthood physicians bantering cheerfully with interlocutors posing as prospective buyers of the body parts of aborted infants. While they slurp wine in elegant restaurants, the good doctors -- both women -- blandly talk about what price they would expect for providing … [Read more...]

Cecile Richards: “Hey, yeah, sorry for that ‘tone’”

Source Screencap

Planned Parenthood president Cecile Richards wants you to know a couple things:She's really sorry for the "tone and statement" of a salad-munching abortionist. So gauche. Abortionists are too close to what they do to entertain euphemisms, though. Planned Parenthood's interests are as vapidly vague as a politicians: "we support millions of people, as they build their futures and pursue their goals." She's really mad that some scum outfit "secretly recorded, heavily edited video" (as … [Read more...]

How Planned Parenthood’s Greed Helps Explain Climate Change

"The Garden of Earthly Delights, Bosch/Public Domain

It's a now-infamous video: a female doctor contentedly munches on her salad while describing her method of carefully using "grabbers" to insure that, when she is crushing the limbs of a baby in utero, valuable organs like the heart and liver are not shredded, because people will pay good money for those.“We’ve been very good at getting heart, lung, liver, because we know [that they are marketable], so I’m not gonna crush that part, I’m gonna basically crush below, I’m gonna crush above, and I … [Read more...]

Wuerl: “Disagreement is not discrimination”

donald-wuerl official portrait

This is from April, but I only saw it last night, and the sentiments bear noting, so...Cardinal Donald Wuerl, joined here by John Garvey, President of the Catholic University of America, makes an important and perfectly true distinction, here: Disagreement is not Discrimination:Recent laws enacted by the D.C. Council would have us believe otherwise. The Reproductive Health Non-Discrimination Amendment Act and the Human Rights Amendment Act purport to address “discrimination” by ins … [Read more...]

Toni Morrison’s Vengeful Fantasy Would Not “End” Anything

Somehow this got past me, until I happened to see it on Bristol Palin's blog.“People keep saying, ‘We need to have a conversation about race’,” Morrison told the Daily Telegraph.“This is the conversation. I want to see a cop shoot a white unarmed teenager in the back.”She added: “And I want to see a white man convicted for raping a black woman. Then when you ask me, ‘Is it over?’, I will say yes.”Really? That's all it would take to make all of the distrust, all of the pain of r … [Read more...]

So, Hillary votes “no” on Faith in Public Square, then?

So, it wasn't long ago -- April 13, actually -- that I watched the usual "Hillary is very religious" narrative begin again and asked whether that meant the churches had an ally in Hillary, against those voices who demand that faith be relegated to pews and homes, and put out of the public square:Since Mrs. Clinton is now “officially running” for president, and the press is making a quick note of how important both her faith and its applications for social justice are to her, I expect to hea … [Read more...]

There you go, that's a headline I never imagined writing.Tending to St. James Episcopal Church’s Facebook page typically isn’t a lot of work for the Rev. Dawn Frankfurt, the church’s rector since 2011.That changed last week.That’s when people started posting they were outraged that the church on East Douglas in College Hill was playing host to a “Chili for Choice” fundraiser Jan. 22 – the anniversary of the landmark Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision that affirmed abortion as a consti … [Read more...]

Belying Emily Letts’ “good abortion” Words: Her Face UPDATE

Emily Letts

Kathy Schiffer calls a video of Emily Letts getting an abortion "weird", and if all you take into account is this young woman's words, they are weird; they make almost no sense.“I know that sounds weird, but to me, this was as birth-like as it could be. It will always be a special memory for me. I still have my sonogram, and if my apartment were to catch fire, it would be the first thing I’d grab.”If you let yourself become distracted by what is coming from her mouth, you miss all that is … [Read more...]
