Last Time I Checked the Hobby Lobby White House Petition…

It looked like this.

A 23:45 EST, the numbers show that 4,199 souls have signed it so far. Truth be told, that is a pretty fair showing, given that it has only been up for two days.

I didn’t write it, but I was the 6th person to sign it. [Read more...]

Mike Huckabee on Hobby Lobby: “We will stand with them in their resistance.”

Another New Years Eve Setback for the HHS Mandate: Sharp Industries Wins Relief


It’s time for some more bubbly. Were the courts in session yesterday, or what? Though I was on vacation, see, the answer to that question is “yes,” even if they got down to business quick, and closed down early for New Years Eve.

The HHS Mandate Takes It on the Chin Again With Ruling For The Founder of Domino’s Pizza UPDATED

Because Saints Tell Temporal Kings “No!” When They Err


Another day, another magnificent saint for us to model our behavior after. This is one of the great things about the liturgical calendar during the Octave of Christmas. Yesterday, the Church commemorated the Holy Innocents.

For today, we have another martyr, of the type that needs not much of an introduction. You know the type, or do you? The story of St. Thomas Becket shows us that yes, people can change when they answer the call of conversion, open themselves to God, and allow the circumcision of their hearts. [Read more...]

For All the Saints: John, Apostle and Evangelist UPDATED

Today is the feast day of St. John, the “disciple whom Jesus loved.” Jesus called him and his brother James the “sons of thunder,” so they must have been quite a lively pair. This is a portrait of the young John painted by El Greco.
