How to Defeat the Enemies of Natural Marriage



One of the best talks at our Australia conference was given by Vice Vincent Batarelo (pronounced Vee-che), who led the fight in Croatia to defend natural marriage. Dr. Batarelo was also a natural to invite to our conference, since he was born in Sydney to Croatian immigrants and grew up Down Under. After he completed a BA and MA at Macquarie University, however, he decided to return to the country of his ancestors, which had …

The Real Pope Francis has Stood Up



It’s time to take off the “Who am I to judge?” t-shirts. For some time these have been flaunted by homosexual activists who thought that the Pope was giving them a pass. But it turns out that Pope Francis was not about to change Catholic teaching on marriage and sexual morality.

Out of Africa Comes a Cry for Help Against the Culture of Death



Arriving in the Philippines last January, Pope Francis warned his millions of listeners to resist “ideological colonization.” This destructive assault on families, the Pope continued, included efforts to “redefine the very institution of marriage, by relativism, by the culture of the ephemeral, by a lack of openness to life.” Africans, above all, know what he is talking about.

Love and HIV/AIDS



Pope Benedict understands that condoms not only cannot stop the spread of HIV/AIDS, but that they have arguably contributed to its spread. For this he is reviled by the AIDS Establishment. Catholics, however, should not fall prey to its deceits and falsifications. Anyone who is confused about whether condoms have a role in stopping the HIV/AIDS epidemic need only consider the empirical evidence, by now overwhelming, that the Church has been right all along. Chastity …

China’s Thirty Years War Against its Own People Slated to Continue



I was surprised when Beijing decided to celebrate (!) the thirtieth anniversary of the One-Child Policy this week. I thought, quite frankly, that the declaration of a national day of mourning would have been more appropriate. But I was even more taken aback when the head of China’s National Population and Family Planning Commission, a woman named Li Bin, announced that China would continue to enforce this same Draconian policy for “decades” to come. Decades? …

April 28 — When Gender Gaps: China’s One-Child Policy and the Wholesale Elimination of Little Baby Girls



28 April 2009 — Vol. 11/No. 13 With far more men than women, China’s sex imbalance has already reached epic proportions. But a new study published in the British Medical Journal (BMJ) suggests that the problem is only going to get worse. The study, published on April 10th and conducted by researchers Wei Xing Zhu, Li Lu, and Therese Hesketh, confirmed that men outnumbered women for all age groups. They write, “In 2005 males under …
