Before addressing the subject of this week’s column, an issue of grave concern, I begin with a quote from J.R.R.

Rediscovering a Christian Vision of Sex and Marriage

By Fr. Shenan J. Boquet / April 18, 2022 /

“Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always…

I’m sorry, parents, but if you thought Disney was troublingly “woke” already, it seems that you should prepare yourselves for much, much worse to come. A few days ago, recordings were leaked from a recent company-wide Zoom call held partly in response to the passage of Florida’s Parental Rights in Education law. The contents are…

As I wrote a few months ago, the pro-abortion Guttmacher Institute (previously the research arm of Planned Parenthood) labeled 2021 the worst year for legal abortion since Roe v. Wade. Well, a few days ago the Guttmacher Institute published their first analysis of 2022 – and the news couldn’t be more encouraging. “In 2021, state…

Just a few days ago, popular podcaster Dave Rubin of The Rubin Report announced that he and his partner are expecting two babies, one due on August 22, and the other due on October 14. How, you might wonder, can one couple be expecting two babies just two months apart? Well, Rubin is a man…

The latest effort by pro-abortion Democrats to pass an extreme pro-abortion law has failed. A few days ago, the U.S. Senate voted against allowing the so-called Women’s Health Protection Act (WHPA) to proceed to a debate and then a final vote. This truly egregious piece of legislation – “more radical than Roe v. Wade” itself…

Pro-euthanasia campaigners had gathered over 1.2 million signatures in support of the referendum.
