April 3, 2014 World News Comments Off

  by Peter Baklinski Wed Apr 02, 2014 17:41 EST   April 2, 2014 (LifeSiteNews.com) – A teacher substituting in numerous Ontario Catholic schools over the last decade says parents have little to no idea about what their children are actually exposed to when they send them packing off to school every day.   “I often see things that aren’t appropriate or even remotely reflective of solid Catholic teachings,” the teacher told LifeSiteNews under condition of anonymity. “There are many situations I come into contact with while supplying in 10 different Catholic schools and some of them are pretty anti-Catholic and discouraging.”   The substitute teacher related a few incidents. One included a grade 10 religion teacher telling students that…Continue Reading

by Steven Ertelt | Washington, DC | LifeNews.com | 4/2/14 11:49 AM President Barack Obama apparently failed to note the irony in his proclamation marking an awareness campaign called National Child Abuse Prevention Month. The president, known for pushing and promoting abortion on demand funded with taxpayer dollars, issued a proclamation on Monday. “In the United States of America, every child should have every chance in life, every chance at happiness, and every chance at success,” Obama said in the proclamation. This is the same president who issued a statement in January celebrating Roe v Wade, which has denied any chance at life, happiness or success to more than 56 million unborn children. The decision, handed down on January 22, 1973,…Continue Reading

April 2, 2014 (LifeSiteNews.com) – During their first-ever meeting last week, Pope Francis gave President Barack Obama a blessed rosary.

Obama gave the prayer beads to the House Minority Leader, an outspoken opponent of the Catholic Church’s teachings on abortion and homosexuality, after they lunched together on Tuesday. “I was happy to receive a rosary blessed by Pope Francis. It means a great deal to me,” Pelosi said. Adam Cassandra, communications manager…Continue Reading

Supreme Court Declines to Hear Catholic Schools’ Health-Law Challenge, For Now

April 1, 2014 World News Comments Off

By Mark Walsh on March 31, 2014 12:49 PM  The U.S. Supreme Court on Monday declined to hear an early-stage appeal from a group of Roman Catholic schools on whether religiously affiliated non-profit organizations must comply with the so-called contraceptive-coverage mandate of the Affordable Care Act. The Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Washington and several specific Catholic schools in and around the nation’s capital have raised a religious objection to the health-care law’s requirement that health-insurance plans cover certain forms of contraception. While the Affordable Care Act exempts churches from the requirement, other religious organizations, including schools, colleges, and nursing homes, are not exempt. President Barack Obama’s administration has sought to accommodate religious organizations that object to the requirement by having…Continue Reading
