Become A Sidewalk Advocate For Life

May 29, 2018 Frontpage Comments Off on Become A Sidewalk Advocate For Life

By REY FLORES By the time this gets published, the pro-life Eighth Amendment in Ireland was either saved, along with many future unborn babies, or it was repealed, as a further encroachment on human life by the culture of death. The Wanderer went to press this week the day before the vote on the referendum took place. If we can take away anything from this latest assault on the sanctity of human life, is that we must become more active in our zeal to defend all human life. Be it prayer, activism, sidewalk counseling, volunteering at crisis pregnancy centers, financially supporting this work, or maintaining a raised voice against this wicked genocide, we can all do more. As long as…Continue Reading

More Anti-Catholic Bigotry In Health Care

May 28, 2018 Frontpage Comments Off on More Anti-Catholic Bigotry In Health Care

By MIKE MANNO Well, the latest in the culture wars pitting secular employers refusing religious accommodations for Catholic employees comes from Saginaw, Mich., where a licensed clinical social worker claims she was harassed and fired for referring a same-sex couple seeking marriage counseling to another therapist. The counselor, Kathleen Lorentzen, a devout Catholic, worked at a facility called HealthSource Saginaw. According to her federal lawsuit, she had over 20 years of experience providing psychological counseling and had worked for HealthSource since 2011, until she was fired in 2017, as an outpatient behavioral therapist. During her tenure at HealthSource she never had any performance issues and never received any form of reprimand. Last summer, a same-sex couple seeking marriage therapy was…Continue Reading

President’s Keynote Talk . . . Trump Not Letting Democrats Set Agenda For Their Culture Of Death

May 27, 2018 Frontpage Comments Off on President’s Keynote Talk . . . Trump Not Letting Democrats Set Agenda For Their Culture Of Death

By DEXTER DUGGAN How’s this for something to look forward to? President Donald Trump pushing a baby carriage through the streets next January, directly participating at the March for Life in Washington, D.C. National radio talk host Laura Ingraham was so enthused by Trump’s keynote talk to the nationally active pro-life Susan B. Anthony List’s gala on May 22 that she cheered on the president’s commitment during her program the next morning. Ingraham first envisioned him on foot joining the marchers, then quickly added pushing the baby carriage to complete the image. “Donald Trump rocked it last night. It was so great” at the gala, she said. Catholic commentator Raymond Arroyo, who often goes on-air on Ingraham’s radio program, added…Continue Reading

Trashing Old Notre Dame

May 26, 2018 Frontpage Comments Off on Trashing Old Notre Dame

By CHRISTOPHER MANION Just one year shy of a century ago, my father mustered out the Army after World War I and faced a tough decision. Should he go to New York City, and Vaudeville (he was a piano player and an “End Man”)? Or should he go to law school? Well, he wound up going to law school at Notre Dame, paying his way by teaching history in the high school on campus that had as many students as the university did in those days. He retired in 1952 as dean of the law school, after helping hundreds of GI’s returning from the war to get their law degree. In those days, Notre Dame undergrads were required to take…Continue Reading

We Have Personhood For All Except Unborn Persons

May 25, 2018 Frontpage Comments Off on We Have Personhood For All Except Unborn Persons

By REY FLORES Most of us who have grown up during the past 60 years have probably read many Dr. Seuss books during our childhood. As parents and grandparents, we have also read them countless times to our little ones. Remember Horton Hears a Who? That is the one where one of the lines in the story says, “A person is a person, no matter how small.” Many pro-lifers have used this phrase in T-shirts, signs, buttons, and stickers. I propose a similar line for those who want to grant personhood to everything, except to unborn human beings. That phrase would go like this: “A person is a person no matter how small or big, except if it’s a clump…Continue Reading

The Chair Of Peter Is Not Vacant… But The Chair’s Occupant Is Vacating His Duties

May 24, 2018 Frontpage Comments Off on The Chair Of Peter Is Not Vacant… But The Chair’s Occupant Is Vacating His Duties

As happens with the certainty of the sun’s rising, our Pope has again reportedly expressed himself in a manner seemingly contrary to Catholic belief. At the very least, his remarks raise more questions than answers. Unsurprisingly, the subject is homosexuality. Thanks to a world media more than willing to propagate anything supporting a Godless culture, this comment promises as much if not more coverage than the old “who am I to judge” quotation. Juan Carlos Cruz, a Chilean survivor of clerical sex abuse, had a private meeting at the Vatican with the Pope, and later reported that the Pope told him: “Juan Carlos, it doesn’t matter that you’re gay. God made you that way and that is the way He…Continue Reading

Fashionable Catholicism Strikes Again

May 23, 2018 Frontpage Comments Off on Fashionable Catholicism Strikes Again

By SHAUN KENNEY Like most Catholics, I think we are all a bit perplexed at the willingness of Catholic prelates to participate in a fashion event in New York that intended to celebrate Catholic imagery in clothing and art but was predictably hijacked by the likes of Madonna and semi-pro nun-chucker Katy Perry. Even the likes of Piers Morgan — a cultural Catholic, but a Catholic nonetheless — was truly and deeply shocked by the display of disrespect that would never be extended to any other faith. Of course, we know what would have happened if another faith tradition had been mocked in such a manner. Muslims would have vehemently (and in places, violently) expressed their outrage. Jews would have…Continue Reading

Ireland Until Eternity

May 22, 2018 Frontpage Comments Off on Ireland Until Eternity

By REY FLORES Since the creation of mankind, every generation has believed that theirs was the most tumultuous time in history. From the biblical plagues in Egypt to the Industrial Revolution, to the so-called sexual revolution, and to 9/11, people have thought that theirs was the era which would usher in the end of times. Truth be told, these were all end times for each generation. In our time, many of us also believe that the many troubling factors causing social upheaval are all signs of a quickly approaching apocalypse. Most recently we have the great nation of Ireland deciding whether millions of their future citizens will live or die. We mustn’t forget the murder of Alfie Evans in the…Continue Reading

Berkeley Free Speech Movement Is Alive And…Well?

May 21, 2018 Frontpage Comments Off on Berkeley Free Speech Movement Is Alive And…Well?

By MIKE MANNO It wasn’t that long ago that rioters at the University of California at Berkeley gained national attention by rioting against “provocative” speakers. In response the university chancellor appointed a Commission on Free Speech to review the causes of the disturbances and to recommend policy changes. Appointed to the commission were 23 faculty, staff, and student members. The commission duly filed its report and recommendations finding that the cause of the campus upheaval was the conservative students themselves, bigoted as they are: “The rise of ultra-conservative rhetoric, including white supremacist views and protest marches, legitimized by the 2016 presidential election and its aftermath, encouraged far-right and alt-right activists to ‘spike the football’ at Berkeley. This provoked an at-times…Continue Reading

Amid Life At Political Circus . . . Trump’s Keynote To Pro-Lifers Could Energize 2018 Efforts

May 20, 2018 Frontpage Comments Off on Amid Life At Political Circus . . . Trump’s Keynote To Pro-Lifers Could Energize 2018 Efforts

By DEXTER DUGGAN President Donald Trump’s scheduled keynote speech to a national pro-life organization’s gathering should encourage hard work to enlarge the pro-life majority in Congress, according to a priest-activist who helped boost pro-lifers’ support for Trump’s Republican presidential candidacy in 2016, when many still doubted the Manhattan developer. Since moving into the White House in January 2017, Trump has made himself the most publicly dedicated pro-life GOP president since the U.S. Supreme Court unconstitutionally imposed permissive abortion throughout the United States in January 1973. Fr. Frank Pavone, national director of Priests for Life, told The Wanderer on May 16: “I am sure the president will emphasize what he has said before: We must work hard in this upcoming election…Continue Reading
