America Soured on My Multiracial Family

There are three fundamental, complicating truths about adoption. First, every single adoption begins with profound loss. Through death, abandonment, or even loving surrender, a child suffers the loss of his or her mother and father. Second, the demographics of those in need of loving homes do not precisely match the demographics of those seeking a […]

WHY MEN LIKE ME SHOULD NOT BE PRIESTS

I am the sort of man the Catholic Church says shouldn’t be a priest. I experience what the Vatican calls “deep-seated homosexual tendencies,” which, according to the Church, make me an unsuitable candidate for the priesthood. The 2005 Vatican instruction on the question of homosexuality and the priesthood states this clearly: “The Church, while profoundly […]

CLEANSING THE CHURCH OF CLERICAL SACRILEGE

It is time for clergy and laity to begin a movement for the purification of the Church.

First, the University of Notre Dame refused an offer by the […]

How Their Refusal To Tolerate Dissent Is Creating A Global Backlash Against LGBT People

Last December, Politico published a leaked memo by State Department senior aide Brian Hook, on the importance of realism in U.S. foreign policy. Extensively citing speeches of President Ronald Reagan, Hook argues that instead of seeking to impose human rights, democracy, and liberal values, the United States should lead by example and incentivize good behavior. This return to pragmatism […]

Baltimore Murder Rate Surges Again In 2017 (Now Tied With Venezuela); Here’s How Your City Fared…

Once again this year, the Brennan Center for Justice has analyzed violent crime stats from the 30 largest cities in America to provide some insight on national trends.  Not surprisingly, this year’s report is full of more bad news for the residents of cities like Baltimore and Chicago that have experienced devastating spikes in homicides over the […]
