With his intelligence and his oratorical gifts, Mario Cuomo could have been the true champion of the little guy—the littlest of all—if he had kept the Democratic Party from becoming captive to the abortion interest.
When you went to bed this past Sunday evening, the Catholic Church taught the following; marriage is indissoluble
I have argued for the historic view of marriage as a conjugal union and made what I think are decisive objections to your view of marriage as committed sexual-romantic companionship or domestic partnership. You replied by restating your view and asserting that my objections don't apply. But restating a view is no substitute for an argument in its support.
Thanks for agreeing to this exchange about the nature and meaning of marriage. My experience with exercises like this one, conducted in a spirit of friendship and goodwill, is that they lead to deeper understanding, even if the interlocutors do not achieve agreement.
The days of socially acceptable Christianity are over. The days of comfortable Catholicism are past. It is no longer easy to be a faithful Christian, a good Catholic, an authentic witness to the truths of the Gospel. A price is demanded and must be paid.

A day does not pass when I do not miss my beloved friend, Chuck Colson. I confess that I still have not come to terms with his death. I sometimes find myself reaching for the telephone to consult him on a question or to share a thought or idea that has occurred to me. Then I remember that he is gone from us – now more than a year ago.
For those of us who seek to be disciples of Jesus, our obligation is clear: It is to love Kermit Gosnell and pray for him.
I just finished watching the Fox News special "See No Evil" on abortionist Kermit Gosnell, who is on trial in Philadelphia for multiple murders and other crimes. The women who came into his clinic came in to have the babies they were carrying killed.
Abortionist Kermit Gosnell is facing the death penalty if he is convicted of the murders for which he is being tried in Philadelphia. However, in the event that Gosnell is convicted, which seems likely, I am asking my fellow pro-lifers around the country to join me in requesting that his life be spared.
Thomas Sowell tells it like it is on Benghazi-gate. But Professor Sowell is a conservative and a Republican. Where are the voices of our liberal and Democratic friends and fellow citizens? Why the lack of curiosity about critical questions of governmental responsibility and accountability? Why the silence?
