David Letterman's last appearance on "The Late Show" was May 20. We were delighted to see him exit. Letterman's departure was treated by the Hollywood crowd as a signature moment in television history. But no fair-minded person could ever come to that conclusion. Quite simply, the man is an anti-Catholic bigot. If anyone doubts this to [...]

The oral arguments that were recently heard by the U.S. Supreme Court proved why the gay marriage issue is before the highest court in the nation: radical individualism and radical egalitarianism are the driving ideologies.

In the run-up to the U.S. Supreme Court's oral arguments on same-sex marriage, a popular refrain voiced by its proponents sounded very much like the Beatles song, "Love Is All You Need."

We know that President Obama is infinitely more sensitive to the concerns of Muslims than Christians.
