Nationally Active Attorney Says… “No Limits On Where This Legal Tyranny Can Lead” Against Morals

September 28, 2016 Frontpage Comments Off on Nationally Active Attorney Says… “No Limits On Where This Legal Tyranny Can Lead” Against Morals

By DEXTER DUGGAN PHOENIX — The U.S. Supreme Court’s “marriage mandate” in 2015 for same-sex couples “is already more far-reaching” than its original creation of a right to permissive abortion in Roe vs. Wade, a national traditional-values leader told an audience at the headquarters of the Catholic Diocese of Phoenix. “These are very confusing times for many. . . . (T)here are no limits on where this legal tyranny can lead,” Alan Sears told more than 300 people attending a legislative seminar, “Catholics in the Public Square,” on September 17. Among those in the audience was Bill Montgomery, a Catholic and head of the Phoenix-based Maricopa County Attorney’s Office, one of the nation’s largest public prosecuting agencies. Sears is president,…Continue Reading

The Gates Of Hell Shall Not Prevail

September 27, 2016 Frontpage Comments Off on The Gates Of Hell Shall Not Prevail

By REY FLORES “And I say to thee: That thou art Peter; and upon this rock I will build my church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.” — Matt. 16:18 You better believe it. Jesus was not kidding or playing around when He said this to Peter, so let’s take solace in this before continuing our column here. Perhaps the gates of Hell shall not prevail against her, but Hell sure is trying to do everything in its power to hurt as many within the Church as possible. Case in point. In 2015, the Pew Research Center (which in my opinion is more dedicated to swaying opinions than actually collecting and sharing truthful information), released the…Continue Reading

If He Were A Radical Islamist . . . Think Of What The Media Would Allow Trump To Get Away With

September 26, 2016 Frontpage Comments Off on If He Were A Radical Islamist . . . Think Of What The Media Would Allow Trump To Get Away With

By DEXTER DUGGAN He enslaves women, hates foreigners, and despises other religions. Who is he? If the answer is Donald Trump, those offensive acts mean he doesn’t agree with Hillary Clinton’s love of ravenous abortion, he thinks un-vetted travelers from the Mideast should be screened before entering the United States, and he knows that Islamic radicals are dangerous. Trump’s guilt for having such thoughts makes him totally unqualified to run for any office, much less the presidency, say the elite arbiters of correctness. However, if his name were Donaldrahni Muhammed al-Trumpani, he might keep women chained at home and wearing shroud-like outfits, he’d capture travelers to behead them, and set off bomb blasts in “infidel” areas. This would seem to…Continue Reading

The West Is Its Past

September 25, 2016 Frontpage Comments Off on The West Is Its Past

By JUDE DOUGHERTY The West is its Past. The same is true for Islam. Though we may be knowledgeable about the past, what the future portends is impossible to ascertain. History has no predictive value. For one thing, the historian does not spend time formulating historical laws. For the most part he concentrates on telling his story. The historian of political philosophy may be an exception. He may try to show connections between philosophies and movements that he believes are connected, but this does not amount to the formulation of laws. Some law-like statements can be made if one examines the history of philosophy, but they have little predictive value. If one embraces an empiricist outlook in the beginning, it…Continue Reading

Guilt By Association

September 24, 2016 Frontpage Comments Off on Guilt By Association

By JAMES K. FITZPATRICK There was a time when serious students in college or high school would be familiar with the terms “arguing ad hominem” and the “post hoc ergo propter hoc” fallacy. I don’t know why our schools no longer introduce our young people to these errors in logic. Perhaps it is because they are in Latin and are thought to be outdated for that reason. Or it could be that our educators have concluded that these concepts can be taught without using the Latin terminology. There is something to the latter proposition. Informed younger Americans are aware that it is a mistake to conclude that an argument is erroneous simply because the person advancing it is a villain…Continue Reading

A Bizarre Papal Move

By ROBERT ROYAL (Wanderer Editor’s Note: Robert Royal is editor-in-chief of The Catholic Thing, which featured this column on September 14. It is reprinted here with permission. All rights reserved. (This letter from Pope Francis concerning Communion for divorced-remarried Catholics has received widespread comment in Catholic media. (We direct our readers to Dr. Edward Peters’ blog ( for September 13 in which he writes, in part: “As hard as it might be to follow, my basic advice to ministers of holy Communion in the context of divorced-and-remarried Catholics is to ignore the coming furor over the Pope’s endorsement of an ambiguously worded document from some local bishops, and just follow the law of the Church, which is quite clear, unless…Continue Reading

Panel Of National Radio Hosts… Supports Working For Trump To Win Presidential Election

September 22, 2016 Frontpage Comments Off on Panel Of National Radio Hosts… Supports Working For Trump To Win Presidential Election

By DEXTER DUGGAN SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. — Republicans who decline to back GOP nominee Donald Trump for president are engaging in a sort of self-admiring political purity that will “undermine” the ability to defeat leftism in the November elections, a national radio host told a packed ballroom here. Talk host Dennis Prager told an audience of more than 900 people that “feeling good about themselves is dominant on the left,” but the same sort of preening shows up today among Republicans who, Prager asserted, say, “I am a conservative, but I am such a noble conservative, I will undermine” the party ticket this year. Prager was one of the conservative Salem Radio Network’s national talk hosts who spoke at Phoenix outlet…Continue Reading

Why Hyde Matters

September 21, 2016 Frontpage Comments Off on Why Hyde Matters

By JAMES K. FITZPATRICK Ever since the Supreme Court made abortion legal in the early 1970s, I have had to live with a paradox. I deal with it by repeating the bromide about “consistency being the hobgoblin of little minds.” I don’t know it is a logically sound tactic in this instance, but I know of no recourse. The paradox is that, even though I agree that it is not wise to be a “single-issue voter,” I nonetheless view abortion as a deal-breaker: I won’t vote for a “pro-choice” candidate over one who is pro-life, regardless of the other items on the platforms of the candidates. Fortunately, this has never been a real-life dilemma for me. For nearly a half-century…Continue Reading

“Never Trump?”. . . The Case Against “Sitting Out” The Presidential Election

September 20, 2016 Frontpage Comments Off on “Never Trump?”. . . The Case Against “Sitting Out” The Presidential Election

By BRIAN CLOWES Part 3 “If this is a sign of how religious liberty claims will be treated in the years ahead, those who value religious freedom have cause for great concern” — Supreme Court Associate Justice Samuel Alito, on laws specifically targeting Christians being upheld by the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals. + + + We have seen that eight or even four years of Hillary Clinton in the White House will result in a truly catastrophic headlong rush to the left in our court system. This will result in judges sweeping away all of the gains pro-lifers have been struggling to achieve over nearly half a century, and millions more preborns will die during her tenure. But the…Continue Reading

Let’s “Get Out the Vote” In 2016

September 19, 2016 Frontpage Comments Off on Let’s “Get Out the Vote” In 2016

By REY FLORES How many of you are registered to vote? How many of your family and friends of voting age are registered to vote? These are important questions, my friends, because whatever is left of our nation is totally at stake here. The reason I ask these questions is that I am currently conducting a series of powerful “Get Out the Vote” training workshops across the country as grassroots outreach coordinator for the fantastic Leadership Institute. These last few months have found me conducting training sessions in California, Florida, New York, Oklahoma, and Wisconsin — just to name a few places. If you aren’t familiar with Leadership Institute, you should be. Since 1979, the institute has prepared conservatives for…Continue Reading
