“SCANDAL” ABORTION SHOW DECONSTRUCTED

January/February Issue 2016

The midseason finale of the Shonda Rhimes show, “Scandal,” featured Olivia Pope, played by Kerry Washington, having an abortion. While her child was being aborted, “Silent Night” played in the background; the show ended with a self-satisfied Pope listening to “Ave Maria.” What makes Rhimes tick?

CHRISTIANS OWN DECEMBER

January/February Issue 2016

Atheist Herman Mehta has insisted that “Christians don’t own December.” In fact, we do. Just as blacks own February—it is Black History Month—Christians own December. Atheists own nothing, which is consistent, of course, with what they believe. This has to be said given all the forlorn stories generated by the media in 2015 about... [Read more...]

SONY BENDS FOR N.F.L. — NOT CATHOLICS

January/February Issue 2016

“Concussion,” which stars Will Smith, opened on Christmas Day, and while it may not put the N.F.L. in the best light, officials at Sony made every effort not to bash the football industry. They never afforded Catholics similar treatment. We know from a revealing story in the New York Times last September that Sony “found itself softening... [Read more...]

January/February Issue 2016

At the same time that schools are censoring “Silent Night” from being sung at their annual “holiday” concerts, others are forcing students to pay homage to Muhammad.

THE TRAVESTY OF WORLD AIDS DAY

January/February Issue 2016

If it were the nation’s goal to increase sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) among gay men, nothing would work better than to follow the advice of pro-gay organizations. The anti-gay defamation group, GLAAD has boasted that three decades after AIDS was uncovered, it “has reshaped our culture and created historic levels of acceptance.”... [Read more...]

BLACKS AND GAYS LEAD WITH STD RATES

January/February Issue 2016

Recently, a report was published by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention titled “Sexually Transmitted Disease Surveillance 2014.” After decades of the most progressive sex education programs in our nation’s history, and the most massive distribution of free condoms ever undertaken, never has the rate of sexually transmitted... [Read more...]
