Sokolowski on Gay “Marriage”

November 20, 2008

Msgr. Sokolowski gives a great argument against gay “marriage”, in the clear style that only Sokolowski can give.  Not that our opponents are intellectually open enough to take the argument seriously, though.  The modern day advocate of gay rights is so caught up in his ideology that he dismisses the widescale historical social opposition to his own position to the “yuck” factor.  It is only the enlightened modern man (i.e. living within the last 10-15 years) who actually began to think rationally and support gay marriage.  Riiight.

Robert George, Obama, Abortion

November 11, 2008

I read this piece by Robert George on the abortion policies Obama promises to enact, as well as his abortion voting history. 

Now that the election is over, the interesting question will be to see how many Obama-supporting Catholics actively oppose Obama’s abortion policies.  Further, it will be interesting to finally see the myth put to rest that liberal social policies will lower the occurrence of abortions by keeping people out of situations in which they would desire to have an abortion.  Then maybe we can get back to the real work of banning such an horrendous crime from our shores.

But then again, don’t count on it.  Expect Catholics to continue voting primarily in line with their political affinities.

EDIT:  Fixed the broken link.
