Aug 15, 2016 by

by Frank Schubert, Public Discourse: A year after the US Supreme Court’s narrow 5-4 ruling redefining marriage, many of the elite in the Republican Party are anxious to declare “the marriage issue” settled. It’s a common refrain from high-ranking Republicans: “the Supreme Court has spoken,” and the party should move on to other issues.

Hillary Clinton promises to enact the greatest expansion of abortion funding in history

Aug 10, 2016 by

by Ben Johnson, LifeSite: In a nearly hour-long acceptance speech largely excoriating her opponent, Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton promised to enact the largest expansion of taxpayer-funded abortion-on-demand in history.

A traditional family life is now a political handicap

Jul 12, 2016 by

by Ross Clark, Spectator: ‘I’m a gay woman with strong northern working-class roots,’ Angela Eagle told Robert Peston on Sunday. ‘I think I’m the right person for this job at this time.’ In case we didn’t get the point she followed it up this morning by boasting: ‘I’m a northern working-class girl who understands modern life.’ How outrageous that Jeremy Corbyn’s challenger should bring her class, her geographical birthplace and her sexuality into the leadership debate, suggesting that they...
