The Hyde Amendment is one of the most important pro-life achievements in U.S. history. But right now, it is under serious threat. For those who are unaware, the Hyde Amendment, named after pro-life Rep. Henry Hyde, is an amendment that has been appended to every appropriations (i.e., spending) bill since 1976.

The fight against the culture of death is a fight for lives and for souls.

The further our culture moves away…

Upholding Religious Liberty and Genuine Help in Foster Care

By Fr. Shenan J. Boquet / June 28, 2021 /

In recent years, it is all too rare that pro-family activists have won any significant victories. From the passage of civil union laws, to the legalization of same-sex “marriage,” and now the rapid spread of an extreme and coercive form of gender ideology, it seems that we have been losing one major battle after another.…

Crisis of Truth, Crisis of Freedom

By Fr. Shenan J. Boquet / January 18, 2021 /

Without sounding like a radical conspiracist, we in the United States are dancing precariously on the edge of a knife. The events that unfolded on January 6 at the Capitol in Washington have given the tech giants – Facebook, Twitter, Amazon, Apple, and Google – the excuse they need to begin purging personalities and opinions…

Criminalizing the Christian View of Homosexuality

By Fr. Shenan J. Boquet / December 7, 2020 /

Beyond a doubt, one of the gravest threats to the freedom of Christians in many Western nations right now is posed by the efforts of LGBT activists to outlaw any form of dissent from their progressive sexual ideology.

How to Defend Life Under a Biden Presidency

By Fr. Shenan J. Boquet / November 23, 2020 /

Two weeks ago I wrote some words of encouragement, noting that even should Biden win the election, there is much that the pro-life and pro-family movements can do to save lives, and restore sanity to our culture.

Our Job as Christians After the 2020 Election

By Fr. Shenan J. Boquet / November 9, 2020 /

The media has declared Biden the winner of the 2020 U.S. presidential election. However, we will likely not know with certitude for some weeks, at a minimum, what the result of the election is. The Trump campaign is currently preparing – or has already filed – numerous lawsuits alleging electoral irregularities. Allegations of widespread fraud…

Justice Antonin Scalia was one of the most brilliant, influential, and fascinating Supreme Court justices in recent history. A faithful Catholic, he was the father of nine children, one of whom is now serving as a priest in the Arlington diocese. Not only was Scalia Catholic, but he was willing to express and defend his…

Will Biden’s “Devout” Faith Fool Pro-Life Voters?

By Fr. Shenan J. Boquet / August 24, 2020 /

Over at First Things last week, Prof. Robert George published a clever thought experiment. Prof. George, in case you don’t know, is one of the rarest of specimens these days – an openly and proudly pro-life, pro-family, and faithfully Catholic faculty member at an Ivy League university, in this case Princeton University. In his article,…

Biden-Harris Ticket Threatens Faith, Family, and Life

By Fr. Shenan J. Boquet / August 17, 2020 /

Over the past decade the Democrat party has been careening towards the radical left, occupied these days by an intolerant cabal of ideological extremists whose main concerns include the unrestricted right to choose an abortion, whether toddlers are being sufficiently affirmed in their “transgender” identity, and how to expunge every person with the slightest conservative…
