  • It might make people think
    Post by Patricia Pitkus Bainbridge, 1/30/2012

    “Being one of those people who typically has the TV on as "background," it was not unusual that while answering e-mail last evening, there was "noise" coming from the small set in my office. I glanced and became aware that an episode of CSI: Miami was on. I basically ignored it until I heard something (the words,“sperm donor”) that piqued my interest. ... ”

  • The Sacrament of Marriage and the Spectre of Divorce
    Post by Matthew Milhon, 1/20/2012

    “"Is there a history of divorce in your family?" Being a 23-year-old man on the verge of marriage, this question caught me more than a little off guard when asked by a priest who is preparing my fiancée and I for the Sacrament of Matrimony. At first I was not entirely sure why I found it offensive. Was it that I found it insensitive to pose such a question to a couple preparing to enter into sacramental union, or maybe I just did not want to entertain the notion of a future without my bride-to-be? ... ”

  • Merry Christmas and Happy New Year
    The Reason for the Season - Post by Bob Laird, 1/2/2012

    “The football bowl games, family dinners, and gift exchanges of the holidays are beyond us and before returning to our daily routines, let us reflect on the "reason for the season" and how that reason drives our lives for the entire year. Christmas does not end on Christmas Day. It does not end when the Octave of Christmas is over on New Years Day. The Church celebrates Christmas through the Epiphany, when the gentiles (non-Jews) visited the child Jesus. While such a celebration in 2012 only extends for one week (shortest Christmas season possible), it still gives us time to reflect of the profound impact that this one child made on all of humanity. ... ”

  • Family Friendly Content Boosts Radio Ratings
    Post by Matthew Milhon, 12/21/2011

    “When considering the climate of the contemporary American entertainment industry one does not have to look far to find that the majority of mainstream films, music, television shows, etc. are ensconced with gratuitous violence and sexual imagery that, even a generation ago, would have been deemed inappropriate for public consumption. Take this and couple it with record breaking budgets for Hollywood films and chart topping musical performers whose singles promote same-sex relationships and blatantly ridicule Christianity, and yet are still invited to perform in TV specials such as "A Very Gaga Thanksgiving". One would think that the trend in modern entertainment would be driving headlong deeper into the moral quagmire in which it currently finds itself. ... ”

  • Has Obama Lost the Catholic Left?
    Post by Bob Laird, 11/29/2011

    “The Cardinal Newman Society (http://centerforcatholichealthcare.com/2012/01/22/obama-administration-and-contraceptive-coverage-in-employee-health-insurance/) continues its (http://blog.cardinalnewmansociety.org/2012/01/22/has-obama-lost-the-catholic-left/) in-depth analysis of the decision by the Obama Administration on January 20th to retain the rules that are in place except to defer the implementation for one year for those Catholic institutions that apply for the waiver. ... ”

  • Catholic College refuses to bow to latest Obama Administration attempt to limit religious freedom
    Belmont Abbey fights back against ObamaCare - Post by Stu Nolan, 11/22/2011

    “The Obama Administration is taking the position that Catholic colleges discriminate against women if they fail to offer insurance coverage that includes contraception with abortifacient elements. Much of the public is unaware that the most common contraception, i.e., the "pill", acts to abort a child if conception has already occurred. At any rate, to its credit, Belmont Abbey is refusing to back down, as reported by LifeSiteNews (http://www.lifesitenews.com/news/catholic-college-sues-obama-administration-over-contraceptive-mandate) here. ... ”
