“Reverse Racism” Is Real — And Dangerous

May 12, 2021 Frontpage Comments Off on “Reverse Racism” Is Real — And Dangerous

By CHRISTOPHER MANION In 2008, Bishop Wilton Gregory welcomed the election of Barack Obama, the most radically pro-abortion president ever, as “a great step forward for humanity and a sign that in the United States the problem of racial discrimination has been overcome.”Well, things didn’t really work out that way. Instead of ending racism in the United States, no one fomented it more than Barack Obama. And Joe Biden has picked up where Obama left off.In early 2020, Biden wasn’t leading in the Democrat primaries. In fact, his opponents were condemning his own racism, citing his friendship with former Senate Majority Leader and Ku Klux Klan Grand Cyclops Robert Byrd (D., W.Va.).In January 2020, Bernie Sanders defined the Left’s lexicon:…Continue Reading

May 11, 2021 Frontpage Comments Off on A Beacon Of Light . . . Signs Of Spring And The Future Of The Faith

By FR. RICHARD D. BRETON JR. (Editor’s Note: Fr. Richard D. Breton Jr. is a priest of the Diocese of Norwich, Conn. He received his BA in religious studies and his MA in dogmatic theology from Holy Apostles College and Seminary in Cromwell, Conn.) + + As the Easter Season continues, we see signs of new life all around us. As April’s showers turn into May flowers, the daffodils, lilies, and even the trees are sprouting with new life. Like the transformations happening in nature around us, the Easter Season calls us to an inner transformation that leads to conversion of heart. This transformation and conversion are especially needed in the present age in which we find ourselves.This statement is…Continue Reading

More Nuns Seek Supreme Court Protection

May 10, 2021 Frontpage Comments Off on More Nuns Seek Supreme Court Protection

By DEACON MIKE MANNO Several orders of nuns, both Catholic and Anglican, as well as a couple of Catholic dioceses, along with several other Christian churches and faith-based social justice ministries, are asking the Supreme Court to protect them from an insidious state rule in New York that will compel them to provide abortion coverage in their employees’ health-care packages.Shades of the Little Sisters of the Poor, who successfully challenged Obama-era regulations that forced them to provide contraceptive coverage in their health insurance. Three times the court ruled in favor of the Little Sisters holding that the government could not force the Little Sisters to do so.Ironically, in 2017 after the Little Sisters scored two of their Supreme Court victories,…Continue Reading

Pols Will Parade Their Charades Forever . . . If They Think They’ll Get Away with Them

May 9, 2021 Frontpage Comments Off on Pols Will Parade Their Charades Forever . . . If They Think They’ll Get Away with Them

By DEXTER DUGGAN The morning after Lyndon Baines Johnson was inaugurated in his own right as president in January 1965, the top of the front page of the major daily New York Herald Tribune was dominated by a two-line banner headline: “Johnson sworn in, predicts victory over poverty and injustice in America within this generation.” The subhead was, “He takes oath on mother’s Bible.”Strictly, “this generation” ended 20 years later, in January 1985 — nearly 36 and one-half years ago. How have you been enjoying these decades of blissful equality and justice delivered by Johnson’s Democrats?Johnson and his kind only want the money and power for themselves that come with such big talk, while leaving the public on the hamster…Continue Reading

A Brave Archbishop Issues A Call To Arms

May 8, 2021 Frontpage Comments Off on A Brave Archbishop Issues A Call To Arms

By CHRISTOPHER MANION “A rising group of right-wing U.S. Catholic Bishops is colliding with a very Catholic president who supports abortion rights,” The Washington Post tweeted April 29.These days the Post assumes that its remaining readers can’t think for themselves. They must be trained, in this case through the lens of the lazy “right-left” trope so dear to Social Justice Warriors.The Post’s lesson plan continues: “Having a U.S. president who attends Mass week after week and talks about his faith is powerful to millions of American Catholics.”This mandatory postulation appears in the “news” section, of course. And it is directed not only to Washington’s Blue Bubble, but also to any “rising” bishops who don’t want any bad press. With scant…Continue Reading

The Deceptive Lion

May 7, 2021 Frontpage Comments Off on The Deceptive Lion

By JOE SIXPACK There was once a lion that had grown too old to be able to hunt for his food, so he decided instead to acquire his prey by trickery. He would lie in his den and pretend to be very sick. He made certain everyone knew the king of beasts was ill so they would all come and pay him homage. Each animal of nature would come to visit the lion to honor the old king, but the lion took advantage of their trust and naiveté and would devour them.After many of the animals had disappeared, the sly fox figured out what had happened. He, too, went to visit the lion to pay homage, but remained outside the…Continue Reading

Aquila of Denver, in which he reiterated the Church’s teaching on the importance of approaching Holy Communion with the right dispositions, Blase Cardinal Cupich of Chicago wrote a curious admonition to Aquila (to which the archbishop then responded):“I respectfully note that to claim that we can do anything to diminish…Continue Reading

Eyes On Arizona… Election Audit At “Madhouse” Captures National Attention On Accuracy Of 2020 Results

May 5, 2021 Frontpage Comments Off on Eyes On Arizona… Election Audit At “Madhouse” Captures National Attention On Accuracy Of 2020 Results

By DEXTER DUGGAN PHOENIX — Like marks on ballots themselves when they’re recounted or audited after an election, the meaning of “the Madhouse on McDowell” could be understood in more than one way.The big “madhouse” arena at the Arizona State Fairgrounds on West McDowell Road here originally meant a place of crazy excitement when the Phoenix Suns Major League Basketball team made Veterans Memorial Coliseum their home from the late 1960s through the early 1990s.The Suns were growing Phoenix’s first major-league sports team and gave some rabid fans an object for their affections other than the various well-established, formidable Sun Devils teams at Arizona State University, in suburban Tempe. Major-league football, baseball, and hockey arrived here later.But a “madhouse” also…Continue Reading

He received his BA in religious studies and his MA in dogmatic theology from Holy Apostles College and Seminary in Cromwell, Conn.) + + Continuing our Easter journey, we have found ourselves walking alongside the early Christians in their formation of the Church. Last week we turned our attention to certain figures who played an important role in the development of the Christian faith. St. Peter was the “rock,” the solid foundation on which the new Church would rest. St. Peter became a pivotal collaborator in the Church’s infant years.Along with St. Peter, the apostles and many disciples…Continue Reading

Does Harvard (And Academia) Discriminate Against Asians?

May 3, 2021 Frontpage Comments Off on Does Harvard (And Academia) Discriminate Against Asians?

By DEACON MIKE MANNO To answer the question above, a lot of Asians not only think so, but also believe that Asians are being discriminated at all levels of education and many put the blame on Critical Race Theory (CRT) and affirmative action, provoking lawsuits against the offending schools. The gist of the litigation is that Harvard, Yale, other colleges, and elite schools have been using illegitimate racial quotas to cap the number of Asians granted entry.And all of this is leading many to call for an end to affirmative action and Critical Race Theory in academic admissions.A suit against Harvard, which is now on the Supreme Court pending list, claims the school, by manipulating evaluation criteria for applicants, disfavors…Continue Reading
