Obama’s war on religion (update #8)

Yesterday the Supreme Court of the United States ruled on the constitutionality of ObamaCare.

Elsewhere: unequally yoked

Leah Libresco is a popular atheist blogger at Unequally Yoked.

Finding-out what is in ObamaCare (it’s worse than […]

SSPX was formed in 1970 in response to Vatican II, if not the actual documents of Vatican II then in response to the manner in which its general recommendations […]

7 Quick Takes Friday (set #66)

This week: For Greater Glory opened to rave reviews. One pastor’s good catechetical work in his parish. Recruiting young women to the consecrated life. Do evangelicals need to confess their sins to a priest? Father Andrew Kemberling speaks from the heart on the threat of socialism. The Wisconsin victory for sanity, fairness and justice. Another […]
