  • Thanks, NARAL!

    Never mind the Panthers -- it was NARAL Pro-Choice America who had the worst Super Bowl Sunday. The group made themselves a laughingstock on social media with their disparaging tweet about an ad featuring an unborn baby who was desperate for Doritos. (The ad is below the cut.) With this ad, complained NARAL, Doritos was "humanizing fetuses."

    Not content to be the butt of jokes and condemnation for its disregard of simple scientific truth, NARAL then doubled down by retweeting this from their Ohio affiliate about another ad: "Super Bowl Babies? Use protection, sports fans. #MediaWeLike"

    You'd almost think that the advocates of baby-killing don't like babies much. (Kind of like pro-choicers demonstrated last week, with their horror over rising birthrates after Texas defunded Planned Parenthood.) It was very helpful of them to make it so unmistakably clear. NARAL may have had a bad Super Bowl night, but thanks to them, pro-lifers had a great one.

  • Working Together

    At The Stream, Deacon Keith Fournier has an interesting take on Christian interaction in relation to this year's presidential campaign:

    "Everyone is analyzing what the Iowa caucuses mean for the GOP race. The evangelical turnout was huge, and many of the candidates -- some Protestant, some Catholic -- have reached out to Christian voters, and some of them have even spoken persuasively about their Christian faith and how it informs their political views. These are positive signs, to be sure. At the same time, I am struck by how there still seems to be no consensus on Protestants and Catholics working together." READ FULL ARTICLE »
  • Crisis in Masculinity

    Many have talked for years about the rapidly disappearing men in our culture. I’m not talking about guys. We’re flush with them. I mean real, grownup, well-adjusted males. Where are they?

    The Catholic Diocese of Phoenix is asking the same question. Last month it released a 12-minute film, “Society’s Crisis in Masculinity,” which “seeks to create awareness of a crisis in masculinity found in today’s society.” Now, the film is heavily geared toward Catholic men and I dearly wish it wouldn’t have narrowed its audience to this one demographic. This crisis impacts all of us. Even so, there are some powerful takeaways for all men.
  • One Man's Invasion . . .

    Raise your hand if you have ever heard of Eritrea. Raise both of them if you can find Eritrea on a map.

    Thought so.

  • Abusing Anne

    It may seem like an overreaction, but now and then a cultural commentator runs across a story that simply breaks his or her heart. Here's one such story that breaks mine:

    "Politicizing an Icon: Anne of Pro-Choice Activism"

    Because Prince Edward Island doesn't have any abortion providers, writes Brenna Clarke Gray at Book Riot, pro-choicers have started an "awareness campaign" using PEI's most famous icon: Anne of Green Gables. One of my own favorite heroines. READ FULL ARTICLE »
  • 'No Más Bebés' Available for Viewing at PBS Website

    The documentary "No Más Bebés," about the government-supported forced sterilization of Latina women in Los Angeles in the '60s and '70s, premiered last night on PBS. You can now watch it at PBS's website.

    Here's part of a review by Sister Rose Pacatte, who blogs at Patheos:
  • Some Things Just Make Sense

    Two interesting stories that came out out today and yesterday:

    (1) "Prominent gay rights activist backs Christian bakers in cake row" (from The Catholic Herald)

    (2) "Why prosecuting the Center for Medical Progress leaves even pro-abortion activists worried" (from Live Action News, based on a story from CNN)

    Regardless of what side of the fence you're on or what your personal preferences and policies are, it seems, some things just make sense.READ FULL ARTICLE »
