Late Wednesday afternoon, Governor Jan Brewer vetoed the controversial Arizona bill that would have allowed small business owners to refuse service to certain customers under a claim of religious freedom. Brewer said, “Senate bill 1062 does not address a specific or present concern related to religious liberty in Arizona. I’ve not heard of one example in Arizona where business owner’s religious liberty… Read more →
With stem cell technology constantly advancing, the dream of artificial (or synthetic) gametes comes ever closer. Last September Maastricht University, in the Netherlands, hosted a conference on “Artificial Gametes: Science and Ethics” (no papers available at the moment). The creation of artificial gametes would represent the triumph of technology over the limitations of natural reproduction. Now that it seems feasible… Read more →
The past few years have seen a surging interest in the international scientific movement to “help end human death.” It fears no mechanics and abhors the imperfections of the human body. Transhumanism is snowballing into an international movement aggressively defying human nature and embracing machines. The current wave of debate surrounding the concept began with The Transhumanist Wager, a novel about the possibilities of… Read more →

Make no mistake about the anti-Christian leftists in Hollywood, the mainstream media, and GLAAD; the goal here is to put on a bitter Show Trial until A&E caves even further and yanks “Duck Dynasty” off the air. The problem for A&E and the political left, though, is that in today’s world, the boys of “Duck Dynasty” hold all the cards. What the… Read more →
On Tuesday, The New York Times editorial board revealed its true agenda in supporting the Employment Non-Discrimination Act: the desire to compel religious believers to abandon their traditional ethical tenets in favor of the Times’ superior moral universe.

A new book, titled The Book of Jezebel, edited by feminist website Jezebel creator Anna Holmes, uses humor to demonize children and anyone who is pro-life.
The book calls children a side-effect of sex, babies a potentially life-threatening condition like AIDS, and provides this warning to women who use the “morning after pill”: “Be careful! The women who take these, ‘have been painted as sluts and abortionists by social conservatives.’”
The book defines misogyny thusly: “Exemplified by God, Aristotle, Phyllis Schlafly, Rush Limbaugh, The Republican Party, Allen West.”
Nephews, the book says, are “a good reminder to use birth control.” Condoms are “a must-have accessory for protection against two potentially life-threatening conditions: AIDS (among other STIs) and babies.” But the book loses the humor when it talks about abortion, which it calls “a safe and legal way to end an unwanted pregnancy.” The term pro-life, the book says, is “objectively bogus.” Holmes is the newest contributor to the New York Times Sunday Book Review.
The book has been plugged and praised all across the mainstream media. Time Magazine featured an “exclusive excerpt,” which was introduced by Ms. Holmes herself; The Daily Beast praised the book as a “coffee table bible for middle-class feminists everywhere”; USA Today enjoyed the “encyclopedic tome filled with hilarious, female-centric definitions on everything from popular movies, to virginity, to acne,” and NPR featured three positive reviews written by three different people.

Responding to a list of questions published in the paper by Mr Scalfari, who is not a Roman Catholic, Francis wrote: “You ask me… Read more →
