Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari should resign if he cannot put an end to a series of deadly attacks by Fulani herdsmen on Christian communities, according to the African nation’s bishops, who also accused the president of showing favoritism to Muslim citizens in the country. The Catholic Bishops’ Conference of Nigeria issued the statement July 3, after an attack in Nigeria’s Pla

Cardinal Burke Endorses Rosary Coast to Coast

Says campaign merited by 'the calamities in our times' LA CROSSE, Wisconsin (ChurchMilitant.com) - Cardinal Raymond Burke, former head of the Vatican Supreme Court, is endorsing America's Rosary Coast to Coast prayer campaign. "There is no question that we are living in the most troubled times," Burk declared in a video message to all U.S. Catholics on Thursday. "Fundamental truths about human life about marriage and the family and about the conscience are being called into question by threatening the lives of individuals and of our society." "But we are full of courage because we know that our Lord is with us," he added. "He's called us to be His soldiers on the ground, working with Him for

Christian Genocide in Nigeria

Is Nigeria's president complacent or complicit with Muslims slaughtering Christians? Nigerian bishops are warning of genocide threatening their country. Referencing the 1994 genocide in Rwanda that claimed almost a million lives, in June, Bp. William Amove Avenya of Gboko pleaded for help: "Please don't make the same mistake as was made with the genocide in Rwanda. It happened under our noses, but no one stopped it. And we know well how that ended." As many as 20,000 Nigerians, mostly Christians, have been butchered, burned alive or mown down with machine guns by Muslim Fulani tribesmen aided by terrorist groups like Boko Haram. Similar to Rwanda where government officials supported the slau

Pope Francis’ top ‘reform’ cardinal slams seminarians for exposing homosexuality inside seminary

TEGUCIGALPA, Honduras, July 26, 2018, (LifeSiteNews) – One of the Vatican's most influential cardinals, already suspected of looking the other way while gay relationships were conducted in his personal residence, has now admonished fifty seminarians for speaking out against their seminary's rampant homosexual subculture. “Instead of praising the seminarians,” tweeted Ed Pentin, the National Catholic Reporter (NCR) who broke the story, Cardinal Óscar Rodríguez Maradiaga “accused them of being “gossipers” who wish to portray their fellow seminarians in a bad light.” “When their letter was read out to bishops, the cardinal “immediately started attacking the letter’s authors,” he added. Maradiag

I’m pro-life. And that means I’m against contraception and gay marriage. Here’s why

June 2, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) – When I first became pro-life, the solution to ending abortion seemed fairly obvious: just give people condoms so that there won’t be accidental pregnancies. I chuckle when I think about that now. But at the time it made perfect sense. I had yet to realize the deep relationship between the bioethical issues surrounding sex, procreation, and the human person. The phrase "seamless garment" to most people means the "consistent life ethic," a philosophy that equates moral issues like abortion and euthanasia with war and poverty. I would like to propose a different kind of "seamless garment": the garment by which abortion, contraception, pornography, and distortions o

Italy proposes mandating display of crucifixes in public buildings

Rome, Italy, Jul 24, 2018 / 12:08 pm (CNA/EWTN News).- A bill has been introduced in the Italian parliament which would require the visible display of crucifixes in public buildings, Italian news magazine L’Espresso reported Monday. The bill, “Dispositions concerning the display of the crucifix in schools and in offices of public administration,” proposes crucifixes be visibly hung in places such as schools, universities, prisons, public offices, consulates, embassies, and ports. The proposal would also order a fine of up to 1,000 euros ($1,169) for non-compliance. The bill now waits to be scheduled for discussion in the Chamber and Senate. It was introduced by the country’s Lega Nord party,

Victory for NY Pro-Lifers

Federal judge rules against attorney general's lawsuit targeting 13 sidewalk counselors NEW YORK (ChurchMilitant.com) - A federal judge in New York is vindicating a group of pro-life activists. On the evening of July 20, Judge Carol Bagley Amon of the U.S. Eastern District Court of New York ruled in favor of 13 pro-life sidewalk counselors. The N.Y. Attorney General, Eric Schneiderman, had sued the pro-lifers, accusing them of obstructing business and harassing customers outside Choices Women's Medical Center, an abortion mill in Queens. Judge Amon rejected Schneiderman's motion for preliminary injunction. Attorneys from the Thomas More Law Center (TMLC) argued on behalf of two of the pro-li

Democratic socialism surging in the age of Trump

PORTLAND, Maine (AP) — A week ago, Maine Democrat Zak Ringelstein wasn’t quite ready to consider himself a member of the Democratic Socialists of America, even if he appreciated the organization’s values and endorsement in his bid to become a U.S. senator. Three days later, he told The Associated Press it was time to join up. He’s now the only major-party Senate candidate in the nation to be a dues-paying democratic socialist. Ringelstein’s leap is the latest evidence of a nationwide surge in the strength and popularity of an organization that, until recently, operated on the fringes of the liberal movement’s farthest left flank. As Donald Trump’s presidency stretches into its second year, d

Trump Names Catholic Brett Kavanaugh to Supreme Court

Big battle expected for Senate confirmation WASHINGTON (ChurchMilitant.com) - President Donald Trump announced Monday night he is nominating D.C. Circuit Court Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the U.S. Supreme Court, taking the empty seat left by retiring Justice Anthony Kennedy. "Judge Kavanaugh has devoted his life to public service," Trump said, noting his 12 years on the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals and his 200+ written opinions. "There is no one in American more qualified for this position and no one more deserving." Trump asked senators to unite to bring about a swift confirmation. "I want to thank the senators on both side of the aisle, Republican and Democrat, for their consultation during

Bookstore Owner Calls Police After Customer Confronted Steve Bannon

A Richmond, Va., bookstore owner said he called the police on Saturday after former White House chief strategist Stephen Bannon was confronted in his store. Nick Cooke, owner of Black Swan Books, told the Richmond Times-Dispatch that a woman called Bannon a “piece of trash.” The woman then left the store after Cooke said he called 911. “Steve Bannon was simply standing, looking at books, minding his own business. I asked her to leave, and she wouldn’t. And I said, ‘I’m going to call the police if you don’t,’ and I went to call the police and she left,” Cooke said. “And that’s the end of the story.” Bannon grew up in Richmond, the newspaper noted. The Richmond Police Department confirmed the

The Millennial Socialists are Coming, and the Second American Civil War

The Socialist corner of the Democrats is growing and it is young, hungry, and violent. Illustration by Selman Design; Photographs by Tammy Bradshaw, Seth Wenig/Associated Press, Mark Makela for The New York Times, and Jeff Swensen for The New York Times On June 30th, Michelle Goldberg, an opinion columnist at The New York Times, published an op-ed, highlighting the recent growth of Democratic Socialist candidates upending many moderate Democrat incumbents in state Legislatures and even the U.S. Congress. The article comes several days after the shock defeat of "Joseph Crowley, a 19-year incumbent, chairman of the Queens County Democratic Party and potential heir to House minority leader Nanc

Tech Elites Recreate Pagan Burning Man in Home Gatherings

The desert pagan ritual, Burning Man, comes home as artists distribute the private Soul Salons to A-list entrepreneurs and Tech Elites in California. An artist guides her spiritual disciples at Soul Salon. Image source, Zak Krevitt for The New York Times Burning the Wicker Man and other pagan symbols, as sacrifices, wasn't enough for the tech elites and entrepreneurs in California. They wanted to bring the experience home. Like a modern "age of aquarius," music festivals like the Burning Man & Electric Forest have taken thousands of millennials hostage with a powerful culture of sex, drugs, and emotions. Not only has this culture greatly degraded our youth's potential, but has created a plat

Supreme Court Nomination: Will Anti-Catholic Bigotry Resurface in the Senate?

Catholics Amy Barrett and Brett Kavanaugh at the top of Trump's Supreme Court short list As in the world of news, you're only as good as your last story, so in the world of politics, you're only as good as your last gaffe — and Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.), for all her legislative achievements, will be remembered for one thing: her anti-Catholic bigotry summed up in the phrase "The dogma lives loudly within you." Who can forget the way she badgered Catholic Amy Coney Barrett during her 2017 judicial confirmation hearings? "Dogma and law are two different things," Feinstein lectured. "When you read your speeches, the conclusion one draws is that the dogma lives loudly within you, and that

Communist Antifa members clash with peaceful Patriot Prayer rally in Portland

A “freedom rally” in Portland, Ore., coordinated by the right-wing group Patriot Prayer was cut short Saturday after some of its supporters clashed with anti-fascist (antifa) counter-protesters. The event began without incident until after 6 p.m., when members of Patriot Prayer took to the streets following their gathering in Portland's Terry Schrunk Federal Plaza, the Oregonian reported. Patriot Prayer's organizer is Joey Gibson, a U.S. Senate candidate in Washington state, the newspaper reported, adding that the group is based in Vancouver, Wash., located just across the Columbia River from Portland. Tensions escalated as the two groups heckled each other, the report said. Antifa members b

Families Belong Together & Abolish ICE Protest at Stewart Detention Center, Lumpkin, GA

Thousands of protesters assembled in over 600 locations, city parks and detentions facilities, across the United States. Indivisible Columbus Georgia, a local democratic organization, organized a group protest and march outside the Stewart Detention Center, home to nearly 1,900 detainees, outside Lumpkin, GA. The assembly was also supported by local organizations, related to immigration, and El Refugio, an Atlanta non-profit that currently supports illegal immigrants detained at Stewart. Roughly eighty protestors joined Indivisible Columbus outside the entrance to the Stewart Detention Center. For obvious reasons, County and State law enforcement did not allow the protest to enter beyond the
