So I have heard about this priest, but I have never met him. Fr. Esswein is a priest in the Archdiocese of St. Louis who is also a quadraplegic. A friend of mine went to a Mass that he was celebrating and said he did a phenomenal job speaking about stem cell research. The St. Louis Review recently wrote an … Read More

We have been blessed here in Missouri to have Archbishop Raymond Burke as the head of the St. Louis Archdiocese. Many of you will remember that in 2004 he was very outspoken against pro-choice Catholic politicians. Now he is an outpoken critic of Amendment 2. Below is the intro to an article he wrote in the St. Louis Review. It’s … Read More

One of the main arguments in favor of embryonic stem (ES) cell research is that ES cells are pluripotent, that is, they are able to become any number of different cells.

You know I bet some businesses would pay me money to do this for them. I did this in 2004 with a Bush/Cheney bumper sticker. Missouri Right to Life made these great bumper stickers, unfortunately they were just a little too long for the back of my wheelchair, so I had to improvise a little. It turned out pretty darn … Read More

I finally finished the op-ed I was asked to write a few months ago and submitted it to a few papers around the state. We’ll see if any of them pick it up.
