Cuando la Ficción se Hace Realidad: “El Médico que Creó un Pequeño Pedazo de Cielo en la Tierra”

Hay personas que son como un sol y se animan a dibujar un haz de luz en la vida de quienes padecen el sufrimiento de la soledad. Esta es la historia del Doctor Matías Najún y sus 120 voluntarios que trabajan  para hacer realidad un sueño único: cuidar a aquellas personas que se encuentran en […]

7 beliefs that used to be common in Western countries and what this means

Humans are a funny lot.  Check out all the stuff they used to actually believe. 1. Some non-white races are sub-human. As late as the early 20th century, biological anthropologists measured cranial size across racial populations in an attempt to prove that differences in civilizational development could be attributed to genetic dissimilarities in intelligence. 2. Eugenics is […]

A Massacre of the Innocent in Pakistan

In Malala Yousafzai’s acceptance lecture before the Nobel Committee, the 17 year-old remarked that she is “just a committed and stubborn person who wants to see every child getting quality education, who wants to see women having equal rights and who wants peace in every corner of the world.” She is more than that. Malala […]

An Uncomfortable Meeting at the Wilson Center

Just a week ago I was attending a conference at the Wilson Center dealing with population, climate change, and “health” when a journalist grossly misrepresented Catholic doctrine for cheap laughs.  The lie I am referring to is the very statement Alan Weisman referenced when speaking about promoting contraception.  Weisman recounted with glee the statement Planned […]

Obama’s Divisive Immigration Decision

Congratulations, Mr. President. You have just succeeded in dividing the country. You have managed to take an ambiguous issue and make it just clear-cut enough to isolate one half of our population from the other. Before your speech two weeks ago immigration was an issue, but there were enough views with enough possible solutions that […]

Youth and Hope in Politics

One month ago we had our midterm elections, and for conservatives, they were incredibly successful. The Republican Party won the majority in the Senate, giving them control over both houses of Congress. On election night, I was at Governor Sam Brownback’s watch party in Topeka, Kansas. Some friends and I were involved in his campaign, […]

Human Rights

Why are we still talking about human rights?

Since the mid-20th century, rates of church attendance have collapsed in many countries, the power of religion as a determinant of the direction in society has flopped and in some areas hostility towards religion is the norm. Despite this, one anomaly persists: human rights. They are everywhere. People talk about them as though they are […]

¿Preparación para la fiesta o para el matrimonio?

Estudiamos cuatro años para ser administradores de empresas, seis años para ser abogados, diez años para ser sacerdotes o religiosas, pero ¿Cuánto tiempo nos preparamos para el matrimonio? Para muchos la respuesta es: un retiro de novios, un curso prematrimonial de un día o inclusive de una tarde. ¿Será esto suficiente como preparación al matrimonio? […]

What’s the Deal with #HeforShe?

Emma Watson spoke to the UN on #HeforShe in September. You may think that the topic has faded or simply isn’t relevant anymore. Well, Emma continues to promote #HeforShe to her millions of Twitter followers, but also, many other people have taken up the issue as that of great importance. And I think that we […]

Planned Pastor-hood

It seems that abortion giant Planned Parenthood is developing a habit of publishing pastoral letters in an attempt to garner support among Christians for abortion. The latest letter is an attempt to prove that abortion is not incongruent with religion. Bearing the title “A Pastoral Letter: About Your Abortion Decision,” and carrying the names of […]
