Pain capability: not just for the unborn
The whole Catholic internet wants to talk about abortion again. This time, you see, the politicians decided to put up a bill which they knew wouldn't pass. Why would they do that? I make a terrible cynic, being hopelessly optimistic and naive, as I'm told. ...

I hate response pieces. I wrote this one anyway. Crisis published Ruse criticizing the NPLM, CLE, and the seamless garment. First of all let's just get it out of the way, "pick the red, pick the red, pick the red," isn't a liberal refrain that I've ever hea...

Face it; it'll always be too soon
Let's talk about guns. Yes, another shooting. Yes, it's painful. Yes, we have to be careful not to politicize pain. But it's time we faced the facts. This is happening so often now that it didn't dominate social media. Was it trending? Sure. But, at least i...

Let's talk.
I wrote about birth control. I had enormous reservations about sharing my story. I was worried that my story would read as permission to ignore true doctrine when it's uncomfortable.  God doesn't promise comfort. All our favorite saints embrace discomfort. ...

To my Trump supporting friends
This is my hope.  I hope I am wrong. I hope you get to laugh at me and say I told you so. I'll take it gladly. I'll laugh too. I'd rather be an idiot than right.  I hope that I'm overreacting and seeing things that just aren't there.  I hope you're right. T...

March for Women
This weekend was a hell of a weekend. Obama is out. Trump is in. Women marched all over the world. Crowd sizes are in dispute, but not really. And the world suddenly knows that pro-life feminists exist. We are here! We are here! We are here! We are here! YO...
