When President Donald Trump met Pope Francis on May 24th in the Vatican, the media went into high gear spinning the meeting to make the president look bad.

Not too long ago it would be considered perverse to say that men have a right to use the restrooms and shower facilities reserved for women. Today, the reverse is true. Ask Lance Berkman, the former St. Louis Cardinals slugger. The St. Louis Cardinals has hosted Christian Day for nearly three decades, and this year, as [...]

Human rights legislation is quickening in the states: protections for the unborn are gaining across the nation. Similarly, there is a determined effort to secure religious liberty.

Newspapers are expected to print news, but that was most certainly not the case on May 19 with the New York Times.

President Trump is going to shield from deportation those young people who were brought to the United States illegally by their parents, the so-called Dreamers. He is to be commended for doing so. In the decision announced recently, the president made good on his pledge, made several months ago, that he is "not after the Dreamers." [...]

 A homosexual music director lost in a U.S. District Court on June 7 in his bid to be reinstated in a Chicago parish.

The American people are against Roe v. Wade, the Supreme Court ruling that legalized abortion. In a Gallup poll released June 9, a clear majority—54 percent—say abortion should be illegal or legal in only a few circumstances. That is a stark rebuke to Roe v. Wade, which effectively legalized abortion through term, and for any reason [...]
