Pope Meets Kim Davis – Media Goes Nuts!

There’s very little evidence that Pope Francis knows the details about Kim Davis. It’s unclear if he has much to say about her stand against issuing licenses for same-sex marriages in Kentucky’s Rowan County, her subsequent jail time, or even her Evangelical faith. Before the now infamous secret meeting between Francis and Davis — which the Vatican won’t confirm or deny — the pope all but acknowledged his ignorance to a reporter: “I can’t have in mind all cases that can exist about conscientious Read more […]

Kim Davis had Secret Meeting with the Pope!

Media is buzzing about the Pope’s comments in support of conscientious objection and whether he knows about the Rowan County, Kentucky, Clerk of Court who was jailed for six days for refusing to issue same-sex marriage licenses. The Pope met privately with Kim Davis and her husband, Joe, at the Vatican Embassy in Washington, D.C., on Thursday, September 24, which was the birthday of Kim’s father.

Glenn Beck says “The Pope Could have Ended Abortion in America” but He Didn’t

Glenn Beck believes that if Pope Francis really wanted to, he “could have ended abortion in America” once and for all. Instead, Beck lamented he missed that opportunity. The pontiff addressed Congress yesterday with a message of unity, touching on issues like immigration, the arms trade, and the environment.

Pope Francis Speaks to Congress Focuses on Income Inequality, Immigration and the Environment

1/3 of the members of Congress identify themselves as Roman Catholic. That is 33% of our representatives, in a nation that is only about 22% Catholic. In fact, despite a history of confrontation between Protestants (the overwhelming majority) and Catholics in America, today our two groups get along well enough that Catholics are generally treated no different than any other Christian sect. The makeup of our government bears out this truth. So, while a visit by a sitting pontiff will always be highly Read more […]

Ted Cruz Praises Pope Francis for Leading on Social and Religious Issues

In the past few months, we have witnessed the gravest attacks on life, marriage, and religious liberty that our nation has ever endured. Planned Parenthood is profiting from unborn babies they dismember. The Supreme Court has undermined the truth of marriage in all 50 states. And Christians are being fined, and even thrown in jail, for their faith. These recent actions are attempting to rip by the roots the tenets that have made this nation the freest on the face of the planet. Yet this Read more […]

Miami Priest Knocks Pope for Condemning Capitalism but Staying Silent on Communism

Prominent Cuban-American priest, Father Alberto Cutié, questions Pope Francis’ apparently warm attitude towards the Castro dictatorship during his visit to Cuba this week, asking in a Miami Herald column, “Why do you so strongly condemn capitalism … but we never see an equally strong condemnation of atheist communism?” Writing for the Spanish-language El Nuevo Herald, Father Cutié–a former television and radio host, who left the Catholic priesthood for the Episcopal Church to start Read more […]

Pope Finds New Enemy — Capitalism!

Pope Francis’s attack on some of the values of capitalism has reignited a long-running debate about whether the free market is compatible with Christianity. The recently elected Pope continued his revitalization of the Church with an outspoken statement against the “new tyranny” of “unfettered capitalism.” “Some people continue to defend trickle-down theories which assume that economic growth,encouraged by a free market, will inevitably succeed in bringing about greater justice and inclusiveness Read more […]
