by Kirsten Andersen Over 100 young adults held a press conference Tuesday at Indiana’s state House calling for an amendment protecting true marriage. INDIANAPOLIS, IN, February 13, 2014 (LifeSiteNews.com) – “The media claims we don’t exist. Freedom Indiana claims there are none of us left. But as young Hoosiers, we are here today.” Those were the words of Shane Weist, 33, who along with a group of more than 100 other young adults, held a press conference Tuesday in which they sought to prove that – despite media reports to the contrary – not every young person in America backs legally-sanctioned same-sex “marriage.” Weist and his companions make up Young Hoosiers for Marriage, an Indiana-based group fighting for passage of…Continue Reading

What Did He Just Say?

February 11, 2014 World News Comments Off

 by Bishop David Kagan February 7, 2014 On Thursday, February 6, I took the time to watch the 61st National Prayer Breakfast and heard what I can only describe as an amazing defense of religious liberty and the pro-life cause from President Barack Obama (read the full text here). At first, I was inclined to think that he finally has had a change of heart concerning the true sanctity of all human life and human dignity, as well as the right of each of us to the free exercise of our religious liberty. However, one speech does not constitute a change; concrete actions fulfilling the words of this speech are what give evidence of sincerity or insincerity. I went back…Continue Reading

Abortion From a 7-Year-Old’s Perspective

February 10, 2014 World News Comments Off

by Micaiah Bilger | Washington, DC | LifeNews.com | 2/10/14 6:57 PM     A few weeks ago, my parents and my 7-year-old sister came to hear me speak during a pro-life rally in our area. Though my little sister may not understand the details about abortion, she knows that abortion kills a baby in its mommy’s belly.   But during the rally, my sister heard something that she had never thought about before – abortion centers.   As her innocent mind processed the thought, she looked up and asked my mom, “Is that where they kill the babies?”   “Yes,” my mom answered.   “Do they kill children there, too?” my sister asked.   “No,” my mom replied. “Just…Continue Reading

February 9, 2014 World News Comments Off

A high-profile sex-abuse report is an attempt to bully the church into bowing before the altar of Turtle Bay. By Claudia Rosett Feb. 9, 2014 5:55 p.m. ET In the name of protecting children,the United Nations is now preaching to the Vatican. A report on the Holy See—released by a U.N. committee last week to much media fanfare—alleged that tens of thousands of children have been abused by Catholic clerics, and that the Vatican has helped cover it up. The committee strongly urged the Vatican: “Ensure a transparent sharing of all archives which can be used to hold the abusers accountable as well as those who concealed their crimes and knowingly placed offenders in contact with children.”

UN is NUTS . . . UN shows ignorance and attempts interference

February 9, 2014 World News Comments Off

Friday, February 07, 2014 The United Nations Committee on the Rights of Children issued a sixteen page, 67-paragraph report on the Holy See on January 31, 2014. It exposes the utter obliviousness of the UN to the distinction between the Catholic religion and the sovereign independent nation of Vatican City. Likewise, it exposes the real agenda at the UN to deify political correctness and to usurp authority to make itself the supreme arbiter of human activity.     First of all, Vatican City is country.  Catholicism is a religion. Yes, the sovereign ruler of the smallest nation in the world is also, simultaneously, the supreme head of the Catholic Church. Nevertheless, the United Nations is a political entity that concerns…Continue Reading

German Bishops Push To Change Guidelines For Divorced And Remarried Catholics

February 7, 2014 World News Comments Off

  The CWR Blog Meanwhile, the world Synod of Bishops will meet with Pope Francis next October to discuss marriage and family issues February 06, 2014 01:57 EST BY RUSSELL SHAW When Jesus said, “What therefore God has joined together, let no man put asunder” (Mt 19.6), presumably he meant it. Certainly the Catholic Church believes he did, and that conviction is the basis for its solemn teaching that sacramental marriages are indissoluble. But isn’t there such a thing as “Catholic divorce”—annulment, that is? Evidently not, since annulment—a declaration of nullity by a church court—isn’t the dissolution of a marriage but a judgment that in a particular case no sacramental marriage existed. (One common reason is that one or both…Continue Reading
