That’s because, in all likelihood, “Pink Cardinal” Newman, above, was as gay as a lark. But McLean doesn’t go there. Not even close. Instead – ahead of Newman being made a saint today – she quotes Fr Ignatius Harrison who petitioned for the English cardinal’s canonisation. To be perfectly frank, I don’t think [Newman] would understand the… Read more

LAWYERS must unite to take a stand against secularism, which poses a grave threat to Christian-based morality in America. That was the gist of a “religious freedom” speech given by US Attorney General William Barr, above, to Notre Dame law students in South Bend, Indiana, yesterday (Friday). Barr, a “devout Catholic”,  claimed that an “assault” on organised religion by secularists has created a host of societal ills – especially the breakdown of the families  – and lawyers must fight against them… Read more
