The Real Ron Paul on Foreign Policy

posted by Jack Kerwick

Ron Paul’s fellow Republicans haven’t just castigated him for his foreign policy positions; they have routinely and resoundingly mocked him.  What has the Texas congressman said that is so rationally and morally indefensible?  When we move beyond the universe of […]

The Real Ron Paul on Marriage and Drugs

posted by Jack Kerwick

As of late, Ron Paul has once again been the subject of relentless criticism courtesy of Republican Party pundits.  It is his positions on marriage, “recreational” drugs, and current American foreign policy that invite, not just his detractors’ objections, but […]

Legislating Morality: An Analysis

posted by Jack Kerwick

For decades, those on the left have clashed swords with those on the right over the issue of “legislating morality.”  The latter believes, not only that it is appropriate for law makers to “legislate morality,” but that it is impossible […]

The Christian world just celebrated the Easter holiday, the Resurrection of Jesus, the God-Man, from the dead. Yet there are many people who either don’t believe in God or, if they do, certainly don’t believe that the Supreme Being assumed flesh in the person of Jesus of Nazareth. At the same

Pope Francis: A Socialist By Any Other Name
Pope Francis is once again insisting that he is not a communist, that his abiding concern for “the poor” is grounded in the Gospel of Christ, not the ideology of Marx, Engels, or any other communist. Back in 2010, while still a Cardinal, he felt the need to do the same. Why? It may very

Pope Francis: As Clever a Politician as They Come
Much to the disappointment of this Catholic, Pope Francis balked on a golden opportunity to convey to the world just how fundamentally, how vehemently, the vision of the Church differs from that of President Obama when the two met a couple of weeks back. Why?  Can it be that Francis is the fello
