Victory for Life and Religious Freedom!

After almost fourteen months since the death of Justice Antonin Scalia in February 2016, the Senate voted 54-45 to confirm Judge Neil Gorsuch as the 113th Justice of the Supreme Court. This confirmation marks a victory for religious freedom and the Constitutional right to life! Whatever one’s opinion of President Trump’s early days in office, […]

Lo que los mexicanos realmente quieren

A inicios de este mes, el diario La Jornada publicó una nota sobre un estudio realizado por la Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México (UNAM) en donde se llevaron a cabo encuestas para saber cómo son “Los mexicanos vistos por sí mismos”, título que lleva el estudio. Estas encuestas tocaron temas como la religión y las […]

El derecho de lo sacro

Toda mi vida he crecido escuchando quejas por la opulencia de la Iglesia. Parece broma la cantidad de sitios de internet que explican cómo el Papa podría acabar con la pobreza en el mundo si vendiera todos los tesoros del Vaticano, únicamente para dar un triste espectáculo de su rabioso anticlericalismo y su evidente ignorancia. Estoy de acuerdo que […]

Processada por agir conforme sua fé: o caso da florista Barronelle

“Desde 2012, casais do mesmo sexo são livres para agir conforme suas crenças sobre o casamento, mas porque eu sigo o ensino da Bíblia de que o casamento é a união de um homem e uma mulher, eu não sou mais livre para agir de acordo com as minhas crenças.” Esse é um trecho da carta […]

The Decision of Someone Else’s Life

With the election of the new Canadian government, late last year, euthanasia and assisted suicide have become hotly debated topics. The current laws have been struck down and are being redrafted in order to include some form of medical aid in dying.   In a recent article, certain high-ranking officials from the college of medicine […]

Simone Biles y su fe católica

Durante este verano, mi hermanita de 9 años se convirtió en toda una experta en los Juegos Olímpicos. Cada día sabía qué eventos habría, quién competía por una medalla y las posiciones actuales en el medallero. Se le llenaban los ojos de emoción al ver a sus ídolas de nado sincronizado, clavados y gimnasia pero, […]

Querida FIFA, ¿Quién o qué decide tus agendas?

El defensa se da cuenta que no hay forma de salir jugando y retrasa el balón hacia el portero, éste sin opciones entra en pánico y hace lo que el público espera que haga: despejar el balón. El grito de “eeeeh…puto” ensordece el estadio mientras la pelota se aleja del peligro. Dicha palabra resulta ser […]

Doctors Refuse to Perform Abortions

Anything is possible with a little faith and determination. I am pleased to say that a hospital in Rzeszów, Poland has ceased to perform abortions. This is because every single doctor signed a pledge stating that they will no longer perform them. A specialist named Agata Rejman decided to take a stand against abortion. Prior to that […]
