A radio ad campaign has been launched criticizing Catholic officials in New Jersey for suspending and possibly terminating a tenured Catholic school religion teacher who posted on Facebook about how gay activists want to "reengineer" western civilizations into "a slow extinction."
After Immaculata High School religion teacher Patricia Jannuzzi posted about her disgust with the LGBT agenda and asserted her belief that healthy families come from ones that consist of a mother and a father, celebrity alumni from the school voiced their opposition to the post, as well as other celebrities like Susan Sarandon. The celebrity spotlight drew national attention at an alumni petition asking the school to take disciplinary action against Jannuzzi.
Two weeks ago, the school placed the 57-year-old Jannuzi, who has taught for over 30 years, on administrative leave, with pay, and her lawyer is claiming that the school's legal team has indicated that she is likely to be terminated by August. more >>

The manager of the St. Louis Cardinals Major League Baseball team, Mike Matheny, released a new book offering his critique of how today's parents are ruining the youth-sports experience for children and also touched on how he boldly expresses his love for Jesus in today's increasingly secular environment.
In his book entitled The Matheny Manifesto: A Young Manager's Old-School Views on Success in Sports and Life, the 44-year-old Cardinals' skipper wrote that many of today's parents are living vicariously through their child's youth sports activities and because of that, many children end up quitting sports due to the pressure and fear of letting their parents down.
After 13 seasons as a big-league catcher with four different teams, Matheny, retired in 2006. In 2008, Matheny was asked if he could coach a local youth baseball team.
