Cloning the American Mind and Gays

One of the most obvious issues for cloning the American mind is promoting sodomy and other deviant sexual behavior.

One should remember that promoting homosexuality as "normal, natural and healthy" is listed in the top goals of the Communist Party.

Promiscuity and Media Influence

Some confessed that they could not even keep track of the names of the men they have been with. One girl said hooking up with guys gave her a sense of power. But “do men really like promiscuous girls?” talk show host Banks asked. A second panel of five men said that a man cannot take someone leading a promiscuous lifestyle home to meet the family. They agreed that such women were not respected, only used, and that it would be difficult to trust a girl with knowledge of her promiscuous past.

The Pope's 'Progressive' Challenger

Joseph Ratzinger and Carlo Maria Martini were once considered the two great heavyweights of the College of Cardinals ... Officially, having stepped down from his Milan post in 2003 after reaching the prescribed retirement age of 75, Martini should be enjoying a quiet, scholarly retirement with his biblical studies in Jerusalem. Still, most Church insiders say the Jesuit Cardinal, who turned 80 on Saturday, remains the single most influential Catholic leader challenging Rome's rigid-as-ever stances on moral issues.

Catholics Have Rights, Too

We consider our faith to be precious. We don't appreciate gratuitous insults. We understand freedom of religion and free speech are not mutually exclusive.

Judicial Appointments: An Artificial Scandal

What the Conservatives have done since November is appoint 33 new members to the 12 judicial advisory councils around the country that inform Ottawa on which lawyers would make acceptable judges.
