Dishonoring General Jackson

May 4, 2016 Featured Today Comments Off on Dishonoring General Jackson

By PATRICK J. BUCHANAN In Samuel Eliot Morison’s The Oxford History of the American People, there is a single sentence about Harriet Tubman. “An illiterate field hand, [Tubman] not only escaped herself but returned repeatedly and guided more than 300 slaves to freedom.” Morison, however, devotes most of five chapters to the greatest soldier-statesman in American history, save Washington, that pivotal figure between the Founding Fathers and the Civil War — Andrew Jackson. Slashed by a British officer in the Revolution, and a POW at 14, the orphaned Jackson went west, rose to head up the Tennessee militia, crushed an Indian uprising at Horseshoe Bend, Ala., in the War of 1812, then was ordered to New Orleans to defend the…Continue Reading

Euthanasia In Canada… Liberty Without Freedom

May 3, 2016 Featured Today Comments Off on Euthanasia In Canada… Liberty Without Freedom

By DONALD DeMARCO On April 14, 2016, Canada’s Liberal government introduced Bill C-14 legalizing euthanasia and assisted suicide. The long-awaited draft is intended to amend two Criminal Code sections that formerly prohibited euthanasia and assisted suicide. The Supreme Court of Canada, in a 9-0 decision on February of 2015, declared these sections to be unconstitutional. While there will be further discussion before the draft proposal becomes law, the Catholic Bishops of Canada have strongly denounced it, stating that “no matter how it will be amended” it remains a “danger to all vulnerable persons — particularly the aged, disabled, infirm and sick who so often find themselves isolated and marginalized.” Of special concern to the bishops is that the proposed federal…Continue Reading

And A Child Shall Lead Them

May 2, 2016 Featured Today Comments Off on And A Child Shall Lead Them

By JAMES K. FITZPATRICK College students are not children, yet the line from Isaiah 11:6, about how “a little child shall lead them,” may fit the role they will play is correcting the disorder at our Catholic universities. Perhaps it is wishful thinking, but one cannot help but wonder if the day will come when the students who attend Catholic colleges and universities will voice their opposition to the drift away from Catholicism at their schools. Prominent universities led by Catholic religious orders still use their admissions brochures to proclaim one version or another of their identity as “a Jesuit, Catholic university”; an “academic community of higher learning, animated from its origins by the Congregation of Holy Cross . .…Continue Reading

Restoring The Sacred . . . On Defending Doctrinal Truth Without Compromise

May 1, 2016 Featured Today Comments Off on Restoring The Sacred . . . On Defending Doctrinal Truth Without Compromise

By JAMES MONTI Several years ago I had the curious misfortune of having to listen to several homilies regarding St. John the Baptist in which this great Forerunner of the Christ was cast as somewhat of a villain. The homilist claimed that John was being too judgmental in condemning Herod for his adultery and incest, and thus senselessly brought about his own ruin at Herod’s hands. Moreover, according to this same homilist, the real reason that while in prison John sent several of his disciples to ask Christ whether or not He was the Messiah was that John, aflame with pharisaical, self-righteous indignation, was so scandalized by Christ welcoming sinners and violators of the law that he began to doubt…Continue Reading

If God Is Dead…

April 29, 2016 Featured Today Comments Off on If God Is Dead…

By PATRICK J. BUCHANAN In a recent column Dennis Prager made an acute observation. “The vast majority of leading conservative writers . . . have a secular outlook on life. . . . They are unaware of the disaster that godlessness in the West has led to.” These secular conservatives may think that “America can survive the death of God and religion,” writes Prager, but they are wrong. And, indeed, the last half-century seems to bear him out. A people’s religion, their faith, creates their culture, and their culture creates their civilization. And when faith dies, the culture dies, the civilization dies, and the people begin to die. Is this not the recent history of the West? Today, no great…Continue Reading

Being Conscientious About Conscience

April 28, 2016 Featured Today Comments Off on Being Conscientious About Conscience

By DONALD DeMARCO My earliest recollection of an explanation of conscience was when I was a young lad sitting in a movie theater and being enthralled by Walt Disney’s 1940 classic, Pinocchio. The newly carved puppet had been brought to life by the Blue Fairy. But he was still a puppet and had not been endowed with a conscience. It fell to Jiminy Cricket to instruct Pinocchio on the meaning of conscience. “If you want to be a real boy,” Jiminy explained, “you have to know how to do the right thing because the world is full of temptations.” Therefore, you must “always let your conscience be your guide.” Then, the conscientious cricket launched into his explanation of conscience: “The…Continue Reading
