Superdad or superdud? The truth about equal parenting

May 17, 2019 by

by Ann Farmer, The Conservative Woman: ROSA Silverman, describing how a variety of fathers think they are doing more for their children than they actually are, wonders if today’s ‘superdads’ are as evolved as they think they are, with Prince Harry revealing how much he is enjoying fatherhood.  The fact that Harry’s reaction to becoming a father is coming under the ‘equality’ microscope, thus turning genuine pleasure into a sinister plot to entrap women into motherhood, is just another...

May 17, 2019 by

Abortion, Human Dignity, Religion and the Public Square It’s Time to Teach Our Children to Stand Up for Life—No Matter Who Stands in Their Way

May 17, 2019 by

By Joe Garecht, Public Discourse: It’s not enough to teach our children that life is sacred from the moment of conception until natural death. We must also teach them to declare the truths of our faith in the public square. Inside the loving embrace of the family, the faithful need to raise a new generation of Christians that stands up for life and boldly proclaims their faith, understanding that no one, not even an elected official, has the right to stand in their way. In all honesty, I was...
