Deal W. Hudson March 31, 2019 Mayor Pete Buttigeig of South Bend, Indiana is a full-blown relativist. He views the world through the lens of multiculturalism, historicism, gay rights, and radical feminism.

Deal W. Hudson February 24, 2019 In the last decade, the topic of immigration has become as divisive in the Catholic Church as the issue of abortion.
