When virginity is no good

“Twenty may sound early to get married, but tell that to the girl who had her knees locked since puberty and the boy who spent years trying to convince her that just the tip didn’t count.” The above line is from an article by freelance writer Jessica Ciencen Henriquez called "My Virginity Mistake." Before I go any further, read it. Go ahead. I’ll wait. Jessica’s thesis is that her choice to remain a virgin was a colossal mistake; that if she had ... (Continue reading)

Catholic marriage: you’re worth it.

A few days ago, one of my fellow bloggers posted an article entitled, “Marry that virtuous Atheist!” I respect Mary’s opinion—but I think she is dead wrong. And my reasons are based on Church teaching and logic. The belief that you can marry an atheist and be happy is based on hope—hope that your atheist spouse will eventually convert and espouse your faith. This is true and it can happen; anything is possible with God and with prayer. St. Monica ... (Continue reading)

Oh…bama

Oh...bama

Last night a well known—and well loved—celebrity retweeted the comment, "The two rape guys lost." I can accept that people have different political views. Even when the answer seems so obvious: I can accept that people do not see it. What I can't accept is the kind of ignorance and offensiveness that lets you say, "The two rape guys lost."

A call to arms

We have forgotten that our freedoms are not free hand-me-downs that, once implemented, are untouchable—we have forgotten that our freedoms are living principles that must be fought for and protected—kept safe from those who would rather see us slaves to ...

The road not taken

Four years ago, Barack Obama touted “change” and “hope”—his platform was that Bush’s policies weren’t working, so it was necessary to switch directions and try something new. Fast forward four years, and we are suffering from 7.9% unemployment—a number that has stayed steady for 42 months straight with no signs of improvement—and a 16 trillion dollar debt—6 trillion more than what it was four years ago. Barack Obama said very clearly in his 2008 campaign that if he could ... (Continue reading)

Nuns on the Bus

Ah, Nuns on the Bus. What a fantastic, dedicated, orthodox pillar of Catholicism this group is. It abides by the Magisterium, is obedient to the Pope, and is doctrinally sound. Oh, wait. It's not. Nuns on the Bus is made up of the liberal-progressive leftovers of the 1960s feminist movement, armed to the teeth with propaganda that has no economic, factual, or religious truth. The nuns denounce GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney and running mate Paul Ryan, saying the Ryan Budget ... (Continue reading)
