Obama’s Choice To Run HHS . . . Ran Gates Foundation’s Third World Population Control Efforts

April 21, 2014 Frontpage Comments Off on Obama’s Choice To Run HHS . . . Ran Gates Foundation’s Third World Population Control Efforts

By DEXTER DUGGAN Speculation about the credentials of people Barack Obama chooses to help him run the federal government must start with the fact that he’s the most rawly partisan, rigid, lawless and corrupt president in the nation’s history. He demands only players who’ll help push forward his mindset. It’s immaterial to ask whether his choice to take over the Department of Health and Human Services from radical pro-abortionist and defiantly bad Catholic Kathleen Sebelius was born in West Virginia, likes Greek food, or visited Japan. Obama worships the Culture of Death and left-wing extremism. He doesn’t intend to put impediments to his agenda in positions of government leadership. He knows their resumes and dossiers and chooses accordingly.

Holy Week And The Gift Of Priesthood

April 20, 2014 Frontpage Comments Off on Holy Week And The Gift Of Priesthood

By MOST REV. CHARLES CHAPUT, OFM Cap. (Editor’s Note: This commentary, released April 11, first appeared as the weekly column of Archbishop Charles Chaput, OFM Cap., of Philadelphia. It is reprinted here with permission. All rights reserved.) +    +    + Holy Week is the most sacred time of the Christian year. And on every Holy Thursday, priests of the archdiocese gather at the annual Chrism Mass to renew their fraternal bonds and the meaning of their vocation. The readings of the Chrism Mass have a special beauty and power, and they deserve the attention of all the faithful, not just our priests: First Reading: Isaiah 61:1-3a, 6a, 8b-9; Second Reading: Rev. 1:5-8; Gospel: Luke 4:16-21. The Bible has dozens of…Continue Reading

Guilty As Charged

April 19, 2014 Frontpage Comments Off on Guilty As Charged

By JAMES K. FITZPATRICK Perhaps the women in question should not be criticized. It strikes me that we no longer have publications on the right that explore in a thorough and serious manner the difference between the traditionalist and libertarian wings of the conservative movement. That said, the young ladies jumped into a fight that need not be fought. I am talking about the young women who appeared on Megyn Kelly’s Fox News program a few weeks back. They were calling attention to the liberal bias of the textbook Introduction to Social Work & Social Welfare used in their college course at the University of South Carolina. “I was tempted to throw the book away,” said one of the women,…Continue Reading

The New Blacklist

April 18, 2014 Frontpage Comments Off on The New Blacklist

By PATRICK J. BUCHANAN (Editor’s Note: This column was provided by creators.com. All rights reserved.) +    +    + “There is a gay mafia,” said Bill Maher, “if you cross them you do get whacked.” Maher, the host of HBO’s Real Time, was talking about the gay activists and their comrades who drove Brendan Eich out as CEO of Mozilla. Eich, who invented JavaScript and cofounded Mozilla in 1998, had been named chief executive in late March. Instantly, he came under attack for having contributed $1,000 to Proposition 8, whereby a majority of Californians voted in 2008 to reinstate a ban on same-sex marriage. Prop 8 was backed by the Catholic Church, the Mormon Church, and the black churches, and carried…Continue Reading

Here’s The Answer To . . . “How Does My Same-Sex Marriage Hurt You?”

April 17, 2014 Frontpage Comments Off on Here’s The Answer To . . . “How Does My Same-Sex Marriage Hurt You?”

By DEXTER DUGGAN PHOENIX — The U.S. Supreme Court may have thrown another blistering ingredient into the stew for this fall’s elections across the nation when it refused to review the case of a New Mexico wedding photographer being coerced by government to violate her conscience. New Mexico is known around the Southwest for its tangy chile harvest as summer wanes. However, the burn of the chile peppers may be nothing to match the flare of voter anger in November with another element added to public resentment against an elite that contemptuously has imposed Obamacare and other arrogance on an unwilling populace. Elane Photography in Albuquerque had been hauled through legal persecution after Elaine Huguenin, due to her religious beliefs,…Continue Reading

Whose Side Is God On Now?

April 16, 2014 Frontpage Comments Off on Whose Side Is God On Now?

By PATRICK J. BUCHANAN In his Kremlin defense of Russia’s annexation of Crimea, Vladimir Putin, even before he began listing the battles where Russian blood had been shed on Crimean soil, spoke of an older deeper bond. Crimea, said Putin, “is the location of ancient Khersones, where Prince Vladimir was baptized. His spiritual feat of adopting Orthodoxy predetermined the overall basis of the culture, civilization, and human values that unite the peoples of Russia, Ukraine, and Belarus.” Russia is a Christian country, Putin was saying. This speech recalls last December’s address where the former KGB chief spoke of Russia as standing against a decadent West:

This England?

April 15, 2014 Frontpage Comments Off on This England?

By ROBERT MORRISON (Editor’s Note: Robert Morrison is a senior fellow at the Family Research Council. This essay is reprinted with permission; all rights reserved.) +    +    + I was a last-minute substitute for an international conference on euthanasia, in London! The year was 1998 and I had never been to Britain before. I was so excited I could not sleep. What to see? Where to go? The conference obviously took first priority. But I wanted to spend every spare moment taking in the sights. “When a man is tired of London,” said the great Samuel Johnson, “he is tired of life.” I planned to walk everywhere. Under my own feet, I wanted to feel the streets where history happened.…Continue Reading

The Emerging Pro-Life Challenge

April 14, 2014 Frontpage Comments Off on The Emerging Pro-Life Challenge

By LAWRENCE P. GRAYSON There is a feeling of hope among pro-life advocates that after 41 years of battling legalized abortion, their efforts are bearing results. The Guttmacher Institute recently reported that the number of abortions in the United States decreased from 1.21 million in 2008 to 1.06 million in 2011, a dramatic 13 percent decline, while the number of abortions per 1,000 women fell to 16.9, a historic low. In addition, 87 abortion clinics closed or stopped offering surgical abortions in 2013, reducing the total number of such facilities in the United States to 582, which is 73 percent below a high of 2,176 clinics in 1991. A number of pro-life organizations think that abortion is a failing business.

“Self-Identifying” Catholics

April 13, 2014 Frontpage Comments Off on “Self-Identifying” Catholics

By REY FLORES “Lord, please break the laws of the universe for my convenience, Amen” — Emo Philips. That quotation from comedian Emo Philips from the 1985 Cinemax Comedy Experiment broadcast just about sums it up for many in the modern-day Catholic Church. In that same monologue, Philips told another joke about how when he was a little boy, he used to pray to God for a new bicycle, but then he realized that the Lord did not operate that way. So Philips instead stole a bicycle and asked for forgiveness. Nevertheless, he got his bicycle.

Arizona Border Fence . . . Speaks Volumes About Violations That Cardinal Overlooks

April 12, 2014 Frontpage Comments Off on Arizona Border Fence . . . Speaks Volumes About Violations That Cardinal Overlooks

    By DEXTER DUGGAN PHOENIX — There wasn’t too much to disagree with in the words of the homily that Boston’s Sean Cardinal O’Malley, OFM Cap., delivered April 1 during a Mass at the high border fence in Nogales, Ariz. But what remained unsaid? Many people are suffering and deserve Christian compassion, he said, giving examples of people seeking better lives. The cardinal did condemn some people harshly twice in his prepared remarks, though. Drawing his displeasure were “the xenophobic ranting of a segment of the population” and “the bigotry and xenophobia of the Know-Nothings.” He wasn’t referring to illegal aliens.
