Defending A “Pro-Life” City… Human Life International Visits The Philippines

May 5, 2016 Frontpage Comments Off

By BRIAN CLOWES “There is an ideological colonization we have to be careful of that tries to destroy the family. Just as our peoples were able to say no to the period of colonization, as families we have to be very wise and very strong with fortitude to say no to these initiatives of colonization that could destroy the family” — Pope Francis. + + + The most prominent feature you see when flying into the southern Luzon city of Legazpi is the most perfectly symmetrical mountain in the world — the 8,081-foot-high Mayon volcano. Today it was showing off by emitting a thick trail of steam from its summit. As we stepped into the simmering heat of the city’s…Continue Reading

Robert E. Lee: The Denigration Of A Worthy Man

May 4, 2016 Frontpage Comments Off

By JUDE DOUGHERTY Hamilton Reed Armstrong is one of the Western world’s foremost sculptors, with remarkable pieces that are to be found in Spain, France, Italy, Germany, and throughout North America. Not to mention Zambia. A major example of his work graces a town square in Malaga. The sculptor of heads of state and other notables, Armstrong has most recently completed a bust of Robert E. Lee. Apart from an online photograph, you are not likely to see Lee’s image where you might expect to find it, that is, at the Richmond Art Gallery, the President’s Office at Washington and Lee University, or even at the Custis-Lee Mansion in Arlington, Va. Political correctness has taken its toll. Jefferson, John Adams,…Continue Reading

Pro-Life Rallies Around Nation . . . Protest PP Tax Funding, Offer Support To Videos Maker

May 3, 2016 Frontpage Comments Off

By DEXTER DUGGAN PHOENIX — While ex-Planned Parenthood clinic director Abby Johnson’s new book about former abortion workers is titled The Walls Are Talking, the sidewalk was talking outside the local Planned Parenthood headquarters here. Messages in pastel chalk by youngsters on the city sidewalk were part of the pro-life observance on April 23, while other pro-lifers gathered at locations around the United States to protest tax funding for PP and to express support for David Daleiden and his Center for Medical Progress, targeted in bogus legal attacks for making videos revealing PP’s sale of aborted babies’ body parts. “Your baby wants to LIVE!” said one of the chalked messages here. “All babies want to get borned!” said another. “Love…Continue Reading

Pro-Life Activist Says . . . CMP Videos’ Facts “Will Break” Abortion Clinics

May 2, 2016 Frontpage Comments Off

By DEXTER DUGGAN PHOENIX — Undercover videos by the California-based Center for Medical Progress have put abortionists “definitely on the defense. They’re playing defense because the information . . . released will break them. It’s just a matter of time,” one of the CMP’s founding board members said in an interview here. Troy Newman, who also is president of the Kansas-based Operation Rescue national pro-life organization, told The Wanderer that the video evidence “has had the abortion industry on the ropes so badly that they’ll stop at nothing to keep the Holy Grail of the left, which is abortion.” CMP is under legal assault from Sacramento to San Francisco to Houston because abortionists “have to sully our name and lie…Continue Reading

Chris Matthews Versus The Donald

May 1, 2016 Frontpage Comments Off

By JAMES K. FITZPATRICK There is no question that Chris Matthews was acting as a partisan and a cheap-shot artist during his MSNBC interview with Donald Trump a few weeks ago. He was looking for a “gotcha” moment to serve the Democratic Party candidate in the upcoming presidential election. He got what he wanted: It was prudent for Trump to walk back his initial comment about punishing women who procure abortions. Hillary and Bernie Sanders were jumping all over it. In fact, they are still are. Just to refresh your memory about the exchange. Matthews, with fiery eyes and clenched jaw, pressed Trump repeatedly about whether women who have abortions would be punished if Trump gets his way and abortion…Continue Reading

The Wanderer Looks Back . . . January 23, 1969.

April 30, 2016 Frontpage Comments Off

       January 23, 1969 As new Feature on our Online Daily we will highlight an article or column that was featured in The Wanderer in years past. Most of these articles provide insight or relevancy to the same issues of today. Please feel free to comment on these articles. The discussion box is open. Revolutionists Then And Now By THE MOST REV. WILLIAM L. ADRIAN, D. D., Bishop of Nashville. Tenn. The Wanderer Newspaper January 23, 1969 The Church from its very beginning has had to fight for its very life against external attacks, yes, — but more against the traitorous attacks within the Church. When one looks back over the history of the Church, one must become convinced, that…Continue Reading

Trump Slips Up Again . . . Lavatory Liberalism The Next Step To Steam Americans

April 30, 2016 Frontpage Comments Off

By DEXTER DUGGAN Like many other wars, this one started with bright flags flying, great hopes for victory and for the defeat of presumptuous enemies. But, like those wars, combat meant the banners started drooping and assured strategies became hopeless assumptions. Seventeen Republican presidential hopefuls soon were sifted down to two, plus one more who refused to admit he had hardly any ammunition. They were Gen. Donald Trump, of New York, Gen. Ted Cruz, of Texas, and Cpl. John Kasich, of Ohio. The ability to read battlefield maps in the old days — or use satellite images and drones’ information today — can be the key to conquest. Leading GOP contender Trump’s winning maneuvers seemed to show he can plot…Continue Reading

Carly Fiorina . . . Gives Women A Real Option For The White House

April 29, 2016 Frontpage Comments Off

By REY FLORES The 2016 presidential race has just gotten much more interesting. Ted Cruz has announced that he has selected Carly Fiorina as his vice-presidential running mate. What does this mean for the rest of the candidates remaining and what does this mean for the American citizenry? What this means in my opinion is that the Trump campaign is now faced with either also picking a female vice-presidential running mate, or risking the loss of the women’s vote among conservatives. Trump’s propensity for having offended so many women in his “bull in the china shop”-style campaign since 2015 has only hurt him, starting with his on-again, off-again feud with Fox News’ Megyn Kelly. The two have since made up…Continue Reading

Benedict On The Loss Of Missionary Zeal

April 28, 2016 Frontpage Comments Off

By JUDE P. DOUGHERTY On March 17 of this year, Pope Benedict XVI was interviewed by Fr. Jacques Servais, SJ. The interview, originally published in German, is now available in the English language courtesy of CNA/EWTN. It is a remarkable document that can be read as Benedict defending the Catholic faith against certain theological trends. Early in the interview Benedict speaks of the nature of faith. “Faith is not the product of reflection nor is it an attempt to penetrate the depths of my own being….In order for me to believe, I need witnesses who have met God and who have made him accessible to me.” “The faith community,” he says, “does not create itself. It is not an assembly…Continue Reading

Amoris Laetitia . . . God Does Not Experiment With Souls — Neither Should We

April 27, 2016 Frontpage 6 Comments

By FR. KEVIN M. CUSICK (Editor’s Note: Fr. Kevin M. Cusick’s column appears here earlier this week because of its importance and timeliness. Fr. Cusick sets out the serious problems within Amoris Laetitia and also the apostolic exhortation’s dangerous implications.)(comment box is open) + + + The false compassion operative in experimentation with souls is a dangerous sport. We don’t explore new and uncharted moral ground with lives and souls through moral or social experiments because neither does God: For Him only the truth is good enough. God has appeared among us as Truth Incarnate in Jesus Christ. This means that now for our salvation we must never settle for anything less than the truth. Anything less than Jesus Christ and His…Continue Reading
