Divorce is a deadly killer!

Pardon the quite unsubtle clickbait title. It is, to be clear, not meant to disrespect or make light of anybody’s circumstance. But two things: this article’s focus is on divorce specifically (and not of couples contemplating it). But also, it describes really how strongly some people feel about the matter. Let’s face it: divorce signifies failure. It’s hardly a thing to be celebrated. Nobody gets married, in fact nobody grows up, hoping to get divorced. Something went wrong and in an array of difficult choices, divorce happens to be one of them. But it’s far from the best solution. Divorce’s…

Bishops speak out against bill to permit divorce in Philippines

MANILA, Philippines, August 8, 2016 (LifeSiteNews) — Though given little chance of passage in the Philippines House of Representatives, a divorce bill introduced by the tiny Marxist-oriented Gabriela Party has drawn strong criticism from three of the country’s Catholic bishops. In a joint statement, Bishop Ruperto Santos of Balanga declared, “Divorce spawns a host of problems, especially for children. It weakens the institution of marriage. Already we see many families being separated by work,” referring to the growing number of men and women working abroad, and remitting earnings home to support families. “Let us not move towards a weakening of…

Either pregnant with child or pregnant with hubris

Peculiar problems arise when government thinks itself all knowing and prescient. Call it Murphy’s Law or the law of unintended consequences. Either way, Greek mythology is full of people laid low by hubris. As Prometheus was wont to say: “those whom the gods wish to destroy they first make mad.” I write this because the House of Representatives recently seem to have acquired a mania for pushing legislation that are quite detached from reality. As well as insisting in measures repeatedly tried in the past and, repeatedly as well, proven wrong. So, Albert Einstein: “insanity is doing the same thing…

Same sex-attracted man: ‘The unfailing love of God has helped me overcome’

PASAY City – In a candid testimonial, a man who admits to being attracted to the same sex shared about his journey and how God’s unconditional love, manifested through people in his life, helped him in his struggle. “In my struggle with homosexuality all my life, only the unfailing love of God has helped me overcome,” said Dr. Ryan Capitulo of the Light of Jesus community at the “A Love to Last: Families are forever” concert/conference on Oct. 29 at the SMX Convention Center. As a sexually active homosexual, the obstetrician-gynecologist believed homosexuals had as much right as straight people…

‘Cheap sex’ is destroying marriage and faith in America: new book

AUSTIN, Texas, October 19, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) — “Cheap sex” is to blame for the marginalization of traditional marriage, says famed sociologist Mark Regnerus. In his recently released book “Cheap Sex: The Transformation of Men, Marriage and Monogamy,” Regnerus examines the dramatic changes in American sexual beliefs that have led to an inability among increasing numbers of young men and women to marry, have children and be faithful to one another. The answer, in short, is “cheap sex” — sex that carries neither the high price tag of a lifelong committed monogamous relationship nor that of reproduction. Three technological developments —…

Parents: If You Don’t Teach Your Kids About Sex, Porn Will

Parents: there are two facts that are worth remembering. Children—yes, even your children and young teens—will look at porn. As you probably know, porn is not a healthy outlet to learn about sex. And yet, more porn sites are setting up portals within their digital sex empires that offer answers to questions and resources for sexual health and wellness learning. This is not a healthy substitute for real, honest conversations from a trusted adult about sex and sexuality. Here’s why: Your child will have questions about sex. That’s part of being human and growing up, and it is something that should not be ignored, avoided,…

Same-sex ‘marriage’: Religious right was right all along

July 18, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) — For 12 years before the U.S. Supreme Court legalized same-sex “marriage” in 2015, I wrote and lectured extensively on why this development would be fraught with peril. I even recorded a three CD set on the topic for Catholic Answers in 2011. As the General Counsel for the National Organization for Marriage (NOM) in California, I also campaigned extensively for the passage of Proposition 8. This State Constitutional Amendment passed with a majority vote in liberal California, as did similar ones in 30 other states. Yet, by a mere vote of 5-4, the U.S. Supreme Court struck down all of those state…

U.S. archbishop: Active gays must repent and change lifestyle before receiving Communion

PORTLAND, Oregon, July 10, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) — An American archbishop has released guidelines upholding the Church’s constant teaching that Catholics in “serious sin” – including active homosexuals and those in adulterous unions – must repent before receiving Communion. The new guidelines from Archbishop Alexander Sample of Portland, Oregon are intended to implement Pope Francis’s Exhortation Amoris Laetitia in a way that he said is “compatible with Church teaching.” The guidelines state that those in “serious sin,” including divorced and civilly-remarried persons living unchastely as well as persons in an active same-sex relationship, must “sacramentally confess all serious sins with a…
