The Catholic Teenager Who the Media Lynched at the March for Life

Deal W. Hudson January 21, 2019 The mainstream media, with few exceptions, have become haters. They don’t hesitate to ruin a person’s life if they think it will score points for the Democrats and against President Trump. Case in question: a young man at the March for Life, a student from Covington Catholic High School… Continue reading The Catholic Teenager Who the Media Lynched at the March for Life

When Catholics Lost Their Cultural Clout — A Lesson for Today

Deal W. Hudson September 21, 2018 Catholics of my generation probably only dimly remember, if at all, the furor provoked among Catholics by films in the 1950s directed by Luis Buñuel, Los Olivados (1950); Roberto Rossellini, The Miracle (1951); Otto Preminger, The Moon is Blue (1953); Elia Kazan, Baby Doll (1956); Roger Vadim, And God… Continue reading When Catholics Lost Their Cultural Clout — A Lesson for Today

Washington Post Praise for McCarrick in 2014 Contains an Ironic Comment by Pope Francis

Deal W. Hudson September 4, 2018 When Pope Francis refused to comment on the letter by Archbishop Vigano enumerating his cover-up of ex-Cardinal’s sexual abuse, the public was bemused, if not angered. Now the Holy Father has explained the reason for his refusal — it’s too mystical to talk about. In his Monday homily at… Continue reading Washington Post Praise for McCarrick in 2014 Contains an Ironic Comment by Pope Francis

From 2002 — Washington Post Calls Cardinal McCarrick, ‘Vatican’s Man of the Hour’

Deal W. Hudson July 25, 2018 I am posting this article from the Washington Post as a reminder of how Cardinal McCarrick took hold of drafting the sexual abuse policy adopted by the U.S. Bishops at their June 2002 meeting.

Tim Kaine must not get away with styling himself a ‘Pope Francis Catholic’

Deal W. Hudson August 9, 2016 With the nomination of Senator Tim Kaine, American Catholic voters once again face a decision about whether to send a pro-abortion, dissenting Catholic to Number One Observatory Circle, the official residence of the Vice President of the United States.

Pete Buttigeig: What You See Is Not What You Get

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. Buttigeig hopes to secure the Democratic Party nomination in order to become President of the United States. If elected, there would be no… Continue reading Pete Buttigeig: What You See Is Not What You Get

Immigration and the Golden Ticket

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. Like abortion, immigration is now at the center of national politics—it was the centerpiece of the 2016 presidential election. The election of 2020 promises more of the same… Continue reading Immigration and the Golden Ticket

So Much for Dialogue: Cardinal Tobin Talks Past Trump

Deal W. Hudson January 31, 2019 Cardinal Joseph W. Tobin published an opinion piece in the New York Times about “The ‘Ethics’ of Trump’s Border Wall” (January 30, 2019) Tobin’s argument is presumptuous, accusatory, and riddled with factual errors. In that way, it’s no different from most of what we read and hear from liberals who attack President Trump.… Continue reading So Much for Dialogue: Cardinal Tobin Talks Past Trump
