What should a school’s policies prescribe in order to prevent confusion, disputes and even litigation? Previously, these questions were often addressed behind closed doors, as administrators worked quietly on a case-by-case basis and often within traditional moral norms. However, since this past summer’s Supreme Court ruling supporting same-sex – See more at: http://www.cardinalnewmansociety.org/CatholicEducationDaily/DetailsPage/tabid/102/ArticleID/4866/Serving-LGBT-Students-in-Catholic-Schools.aspx#sthash.VpguvmiO.dpuf

April 27, 2016 World News Comments Off

Of the two front-runners, Clinton – who won four states Tuesday – remains closer to clinching the nomination. She now has nearly 90 percent of the delegates needed to secure the party nod, even as Sanders vows to keep fighting. On the Republican side, Te

Planned Parenthood Caught Again

April 27, 2016 World News Comments Off

Kentucky is suing a new Planned Parenthood clinic after Governor Matt Bevin found out that they have illegally killed 23 unborn children. The clinic knowingly operated without a license for nearly two months. The request for a license was later denied because the clinic did not meet minimal safety standards. Many Kentuckians are outraged by Planned Parenthood’s complete disregard for state health and safety standards at the new clinic. Governor Bevin has vowed that, “This administration will have no tolerance for the type of brazen disregard that Planned Parenthood has shown

Top Vatican cardinals aren’t commenting on pope’s exhortation

April 26, 2016 World News Comments Off

April 25, 2016 (LifeSiteNews) – Two of the Vatican’s most senior prelates, both known for taking a strong stand for the Church’s tradition at the Synod on the Family, are declining interviews on Pope Francis’ controversial apostolic exhortation. Vatican reporter Edward Pentin reports that neither Cardinal Gerhard Müller, prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, nor Cardinal Robert Sarah, prefect of the Congregation for Divine Worship, has commented on Amoris Laetitia or given any media interviews about the document. Müller and Sarah have repeatedly spoken in the past about the Church’s teaching on the indissolubility of marriage and that teaching’s implications for those in second unions whose previous marriages the Church has not declared null.

April 26, 2016 World News Comments Off

FORT WAYNE, Indiana, April 25, 2016 (LifeSiteNews) – Another Catholic bishop has taken steps to reinforce Catholic identity in the schools of his diocese.

Drawing from papal, curial and USCCB documents, Canon Law and the Church’s Catechism, the document spells out how and why diocesan teachers should demonstrate the Catholic Church’s principles in their daily lives, and says that teachers are examples of the Catholic faith both in the classroom and out.

WASHINGTON, D.C., April 21, 2016 (LifeSiteNews) – No one is beyond conversion, former Planned Parenthood clinic director Abby Johnson said at Georgetown University Wednesday, just hours after Planned Parenthood CEO Cecile Richards delivered a lecture to a packed room at the Jesuit school. “I’m standing in front of you today as a testament to the power of conversion.  No one is beyond the power of conversion because no one is beyond the power of Christ,” said Johnson. “I have faith that one day it won’t be me standing here and speaking and defending the sanctity of life.  I believe that one day it will be Cecile Richards.” Johnson shared her story of working at Planned Parenthood for eight years and…Continue Reading

EXCLUSIVE VIDEO: Pro-life NFL star Matt Birk reveals real reason he skipped meeting with Obama

April 16, 2016 World News Comments Off

April 15, 2016 (LifeSiteNews) — When football star Matt Birk decided to quietly decline an invitation to meet President Obama after winning the 2013 Super Bowl with the Baltimore Ravens, he said at the time that he was acting on his Christian faith and pro-life convictions. The president had recently voiced his support for abortion giant Planned Parenthood, even going as far as to ask God to “bless” the organization. That made Birk upset. He wanted no honors from a man who supported the brutal killing of preborn babies. While all this is true, there was yet a deeper reason which Birk has not revealed until now.

April 15, 2016 World News Comments Off

Annual drag shows — where individuals dress up and perform as the opposite sex — have become a consistent presence on several Catholic college campuses, punctuating the spring semester with scandal and disregard for Church teaching on human sexuality. Despite the Holy Father’s repeated warnings against gender ideology, and in one university’s case, censure from the Vatican’s Congregation for Education, Catholic colleges continue to harm students and their Catholic mission with these outrageous events. Just this past week, Pope Francis released his apostolic exhortation Amoris Laetitia, in which he notably called – See more at: http://www.cardinalnewmansociety.org/CatholicEducationDaily/DetailsPage/tabid/102/ArticleID/4837/Scandal-More-%e2%80%98Drag-Shows%e2%80%99-at-Catholic-Colleges.aspx#sthash.kM48Zc7o.dpuf
