As Ninth Horrors Video Appears… GOP Leader Says Wait Until 2017 To Cut PP Tax funding

September 5, 2015 Frontpage Comments Off

By DEXTER DUGGAN What more must the Center for Medical Progress (CMP) reveal in its Planned Parenthood sting videos before the Republican Party grows a spine? Having chosen the fetal position itself, the GOP should have gestated some backbone by now. Since the videos began to be released on a general weekly schedule in mid-July, viewers have seen a march of horrors of aborted babies having their organs cruelly harvested reminiscent of National Socialist Germany, except it’s not Adolf Hitler’s treasury that makes the money off this. Having destroyed the babies’ lives as worthless, abortionists turn right around and sell the valuable organs they needed to survive for profit. But grown-up Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R., Ky.) seemed as…Continue Reading

Settling For Second Best

September 4, 2015 Frontpage Comments Off

By DONALD DeMARCO The basic mistake that Adam and Eve made was to opt for the second best. They left a privileged life in Paradise and journeyed east of Eden where they would suffer pain and death. They preferred to sever their tie with God and make it on their own. The gap between the best and second best in this case, however, is wide enough to allow entrance to all the evils of the world. Choosing the second best is not advisable. And yet, we continue to make this egregious mistake. We choose, as did our primal parents, the illusion of autonomy over the reality of transcendence. Sigmund Freud, as Philip Rieff asserts in his excellent work, The Triumph…Continue Reading

A Portrait Of St. Peter

September 3, 2015 Frontpage Comments Off

By PHILIP TROWER I don’t know about you, but I have always found St. Peter one of the more endearing, if not the most endearing, of all the main figures in Holy Scripture. By endearing I mean a particular kind of lovableness which one wouldn’t necessarily apply to everyone one loves, or even loves most. One’s mother, for instance. But it is real enough all the same, and it is partly to highlight this quality in the prince of the apostles that I have written this sketch. It makes him so easy to feel at ease with. He doesn’t have a brilliant mind like St. Paul. He is not a natural leader like King David, and he is not a…Continue Reading

Is The Pope A Marxist?

September 2, 2015 Frontpage Comments Off

By JAMES K. FITZPATRICK Is the Pope a Marxist? You are hearing the charge more and more frequently of late, especially in the wake of Pope Francis’ visit to South America in early July. The headline in The New York Times on July 12 read: “In a Fiery Speech, Francis Excoriates Capitalism.” The article went on to quote Francis’ remarks in a speech in Asuncion, Paraguay, where he described the unfettered pursuit of money as “the dung of the devil.” The Times called attention to Francis’ insistence that “poor countries should not be reduced to being providers of raw material and cheap labor for developed countries.” Prominent defenders of free market theory, such as Stephen Moore of the Heritage Foundation…Continue Reading

Can Public School Teachers Be Witnesses To Christ?

September 1, 2015 Frontpage Comments Off

By JAMES K. FITZPATRICK An article by Berny Belvedere in the July 27 edition of the American Thinker sought an answer to a question that Catholics, who teach in public high schools and colleges and who are serious about their faith, have to wrestle with throughout their teaching career. They know that Jesus instructed His disciples to “go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit” (Matt. 28:19). They are likely to have heard since they were children of the importance of being a “witness” to their faith, along with the encouragement given in many Catholic lay organizations to “live their faith in their daily…Continue Reading

Drones On Horizon?. . . Ben Carson Suggests Tough Dealing With Border Crime, But Church Naps

August 31, 2015 Frontpage Comments Off

By DEXTER DUGGAN PHOENIX — Heading for Arizona’s international border seems to be almost as popular with U.S. political candidates as with illegal immigrants. The candidates head southward; the aliens come north. Conservative candidates want to show their seriousness about protecting border integrity and citizens’ safety after the unauthorized entrants show their untrustworthiness about respecting U.S. law. That crisis assumed such proportions by mid-August that a mild-mannered retired pediatric neurosurgeon on the campaign trail suggested using drones to attack the supply caves of dangerous alien smugglers in southern Arizona. With border security among his topics, White House hopeful Dr. Ben Carson spoke to a cheering crowd here estimated as high as 12,000 people on August 18, followed the next day…Continue Reading

The Pro-Life Revolution

Rey Flores “You say you want a revolution, well you know . . . we all want to change the world. . . . But when you talk about destruction, don’t you know that you can count me out! Don’t you know it’s gonna’ be alright, alright, alright!” — Lyrics from The Beatles 1968 song Revolution, written by Lennon-McCartney Yes, ladies and gentlemen . . . there is a revolution, a pro-life revolution happening right now as you read this. Just this past week hundreds of thousands of Americans protested, rallied and got together to speak out against one of the greatest injustices, if not the greatest, injustices of our time. All across this land and other countries like England…Continue Reading

As Eighth PP Video Appears . . . California Commentator Explains Why Media Avoid Facing Facts

August 29, 2015 Frontpage Comments Off

By DEXTER DUGGAN Media people and politicians who are “married” to the pro-abortion view would rather be “biting into their wrists” than give up that belief, a veteran California reporter, anchor woman and talk host told The Wanderer as the pro-life Center for Medical Progress (CMP) released its eighth sting video on selling baby parts. The abortion defenders “are married to the idea that abortion is a woman’s right, and if you do anything to undermine it, they’ll lose that right,” said Barbara Simpson, who worked at major electronic news outlets in Los Angeles and San Francisco before becoming a Bay Area radio talk host. She currently writes a weekly commentary for World Net Daily. “They just will not do…Continue Reading

The Great Agent Of Mischief

August 28, 2015 Frontpage Comments Off

By DONALD DeMARCO If Mortimer Adler, after writing his classic, How to Read a Book, authored How to Read the Newspaper, he probably would have warned his readers that newspapers convey something other than news. They convey, he would advise, propaganda carefully concealed within what the inattentive reader might assume to be mere news. Consider the following three newspaper items culled recently from the same newspaper. 1) Gretta Vosper, an ordained minister of the United Church of Canada, has declared that she believes neither in God nor in the Bible. When she decided to abandon the Lord’s Prayer, 100 of the 150 members of her congregation left in protest. She claims that belief in God can motivate bad things. Rev.…Continue Reading

Stand Strong

August 27, 2015 Frontpage Comments Off

By LAWRENCE P. GRAYSON A significant danger facing America today is that its people are losing their sense of religious values and allowing the culture of the country to be shaped by militant secularists. The results are unsurprising: abortion and same-sex marriage are legal; assisted suicide and euthanasia are gaining acceptance; pornography is rampant; and religious persecution is underway. When secularism dominates the culture, religious freedom must be curtailed. Secularism is a belief system that is anti-theistic, rooted in materialism and hedonism. It is alluring because it gives societal acceptance to unbridled human passions. It does away with distinctions of right or wrong, even treating wrong as right and right as wrong. Secularism is an idolatry in which the beliefs…Continue Reading
