I cried almost every day for almost nine years.” It is absolutely insane to compare abortion, as many do, to other medical procedures, even major ones. By and large, people don’t tend to cry every day […]

As I predicted, Mother Dolores was never featured on any of the red carpet shows, but I heard from a few people who noticed her in the background. She even caught the attention of celebrity gossip blogger Perez Hilton! I didn’t see it live, but during this interview with Maya Rudolph, you can see her […]

Ah, Lent! That time of year when we spend a little more time than usual reflecting on how much we have distanced ourselves from God by our sin.
