Articles:

The Locus of Hatred, Part 1 - Anthony Esolen

It is a commonplace among our ruling class that religion is irrational and inherently divisive, fostering hatred of one group for another.   Read more...

The Male Priesthood: The Argument From Sacred Tradition - Mark Lowery

In May of 1994 John Paul II promulgated “Ordinatio Sacerdotalis” which declared definitely that the Catholic priesthood is reserved for males. Hence, the question “Why can there not be women priests?” has now been answered in a definitive way. While Catholics are not to question the teaching of the Magisterium on this matter, the time is ripe for all interested to come to a deeper understanding and appreciation of the Church’s teaching.  Read more...

The Mother of the Son: The Case for Marian Devotion - Mark Shea

It has to be one of the strangest things in the world: So many Christians who love Jesus with all their hearts recoil in fear at the mention of His mother’s name, while many who do love her find themselves tongue-tied when asked to explain why.   Read more...

The Myth of Religious Violence - Benjamin Wiker

One of the enduring myths of the secular state is that religion is so dangerous, so volatile, so likely to burst into conflagrations of violence, that the only protection we have from societal destruction is the erection of a wall that separates religion from the state.  Read more...

The Passion of Pope Benedict. Six Accusations, One Question - Sandro Magister

Pedophilia is only the latest weapon aimed against Joseph Ratzinger. And each time, he is attacked where he most exercises his leadership role. One by one, the critical points of this pontificate.  Read more...

The Pope in Portugal - David Warren

He has made a headline already; and typically by saying something that is a commonplace of Catholic belief, to astounded media reporters. On the plane from Rome he mentioned that the worst persecutor of the Catholic Church is her own propensity to sin. Her worst enemy is inside, not outside.  Read more...

The Pope Strikes Back - Theodore Dalrymple

It is a nice question as to whether a true or a false accusation provokes more outrage in the accused.   Read more...

The Power of the Religious Habit: A True Story - John H. Ballentine

Sister Z herself says that her habit is a daily reminder of her vow to God. Since a religious habit is a sacramental, it is an outward sign disposing the wearer (and others who see it) to receive graces.  Read more...

The price of easy money - Father Raymond J. de Souza

The good news for hockey fans in Pittsburgh came last week not from the hockey team, but from the Pittsburgh Gaming Task Force.  Read more...

The Problem of Evil - Peter Kreeft

If God is so good, why is his world so bad? If an all-good, all-wise, all-loving, all-just, and all-powerful God is running the show, why does he seem to be doing such a miserable job of it? Why do bad things happen to good people?   Read more...

The problem with being good - Father Dwight Longenecker

The idea that being good is enough is the most persistent and pernicious heresy within Catholicism.   Read more...

The Protestant Achilles' Heel - Tim Staples

Sola Scriptura was the central doctrine and foundation for all I believed when I was Protestant.    Read more...

The Real Issues of the Reformation - James Hitchcock

An informed person, asked what lay at the root of Martin Luther's theology, immediately answers, "Justification by faith alone."   Read more...

The Real Problem With Darwinism - Dinesh D'Souza

The real problem with Darwinism in the public school classroom is that it is often taught in an atheist way.   Read more...

The Reasons to Believe - PETER KREEFT

In this article, Peter Kreeft outlines the arguments from cause and effect, from conscience, from history, and the argument known as “Pascal's Wager.” - CERC  Read more...

The Relevance and Challenge of C. S. Lewis - Mark Brumley

Interest in Lewis is on the upswing, again, especially with the Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe movie and portents of many more in a series of Chronicles of Narnia feature films. What, then, to make of this highly influential, Belfast-born Christian thinker and writer, and his impact on modern Christianity?  Read more...

The Resurrection - Charles E. Rice

That Christ rose from the dead is an article of our faith. But we tend to overlook the fact that the resurrection was an historical event, just as much as the signing of the Declaration of Independence and the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor.  Read more...

The Return of Religion - Roger Scruton

Faced with the spectacle of the cruelties perpetrated in the name of faith, Voltaire famously cried ‘Ecrasez l’infâme!’.  Read more...

The road to same-sex marriage was paved by Rousseau - Robert Reilly

Ineluctably, the issue of "gay" rights is about far more than sexual practices. It is, as lesbian advocate Paula Ettelbrick proclaimed, about "transforming the very fabric of society . . . [and] radically reordering society's views of reality."  Read more...

The Role of the Inquisition in Europe - Maria Colonna and Cat Clark

Before discussing inquisitorial courts, it is important to have an understanding of the history and context of these courts.  Read more...

The Roots of Law - J. Budziszewski

Talking with our nonbelieving neighbors is not as hard as we sometimes think. Not even the pagan has completely lost his common sense. By God's common grace, there are certain things we can't not know — things that every human being knows at some level, even if he pushes them down and hides them under a false bottom. How then, should Christians engage the culture in the Public Square? One thing they should not do is argue for biblical principles using the Bible. To do so would be, in fact, to act unbiblically.   Read more...

The Sacraments - PETER KREEFT

Protestants don't see why Catholics who come to disagree with essential teachings of the Church don't just leave.  Read more...
