The Familiarity of Christmas

Cal Thomas, Familiarity doesn’t always breed contempt. Not if it’s a familiarity with Christmas. While America and much of the world are focusing attention on the coming of the new president, little attention is paid to a gift not even the world’s richest person could pay for and which is even today not received by

This Christmastime, let’s sing carols together #MerryChristmas

For most Americans, the holidays could not arrive fast enough. After experiencing what has to be the most divisive political campaign in our lifetimes, our collective breath still feels a little bated as we stand back and view the carnage—the vitriol that has harshly graffitied national media stories, social media feeds, and even our water

Catholic Advisory Group Calls on Kaine to Denounce Anti-Catholic Bigotry and Apologize

NEW YORK, NY – Yesterday on ABC’s Sunday talk show This Week Tim Kaine was asked to defend and apologize for the anti-Catholic bigotry contained in e-mails from Clinton campaign officials and instead questioned the veracity of the e-mails and the charges. Joseph Cella, the Catholic Liaison for the Trump/Pence campaign stated: “If, as Tim


Today, the Donald J. Trump campaign announced a new group convened to provide advisory support to Mr. Trump on those issues and policies important to Catholics and other people of faith in America.

Microcosm of how biased media and faulty political strategy intertwine

Lawrence Meyers, Trump Almost Demolished Matthews. Almost. The Donald Trump interview with Chris Matthews a few days ago provided a microcosm of how biased media and faulty political strategy intertwine.  It epitomizes the pathetic lows to which political discourse has reached.  The video making the rounds on the internet is a five-minute interaction regarding abortion.

œ6/12: Exposing the Left’s Lies About Orlando

Jack Kerwick,  It’s no wonder that the Obama administration wants to rewrite the present by excising from the transcripts of Omar Mateen’s exchange with police the former’s Islamic-centered reasons for the massacre in Orlando that was about to occur. Better instead, as far as the Democrats’ political fortunes are concerned, to assimilate the second deadliest

Enough is enough, Pope Francis should resign

Adam Shaw, Pope Francis’s three-year-old papacy, marred by controversy from the beginning, has hit a new low. After Jorge Mario Bergoglio was elected to succeed Pope Benedict XVI in 2013, he quickly justified his reputation as an unconventional character who put himself on both sides of an argument with vaguely worded pronouncements. From his “Who

NOT ˜Largest Mass Shooting’: Second Deadliest Act Of Islamic Terror

Jack Kerwick,  Within hours of the Orlando massacre that occurred early Sunday morning, veteran academic and prolific writer Mary Grabar predicted on her Facebook wall that “liberal pundits” would soon enough be “linking the Orlando shooting [at a gay nightclub] to other instances of homophobia, such as Harvey Milk and the Stonewall riots.”  The Public

There’s no such thing as ˜reasonable suspicion’ of immigrants

Ana Christina DaSilva Iddings,  My path to the United States, 20 years ago, was far less traumatic than that of the 52,000 unaccompanied children from Central America who have arrived at the southern U.S. border since October. Since many of these children don’t qualify for asylum, immigration officials move them to detention centers — after

Malaysia’s top court: ‘Allah’ for Muslims only

 Malaysia’s top court on Monday upheld a government ban forbidding non-Muslims from using “Allah” to refer to God, rejecting an appeal by the Roman Catholic Church that argued that the law failed to consider the rights of minorities in the largely Muslim nation. Although the Malaysian constitution guarantees freedom of religion, the 4-3 decision by
