Humanae Vitae After Twenty-Five Years: Responses to Some Common Difficultie - Paul Flaman

If God is Love, Why Must We Die? - Donald DeMarco

God is Love! This is the most glorious and welcomed notion in all of Christian theology. Man must die! This is the most vexing and most unwelcomed realization in the domain of human existence. How can a loving God allow his beloved creature, made in his own image, to die? This is the central paradox of existential theology — and a philosophical riddle well worth considering during this month of the holy souls.  Read more...

If Good and Evil Exist, God Exists - Peter Kreeft

I'm going to argue for the existence of God from the premise that moral good and evil really exist: they are not merely a matter of personal taste, not merely substitutes for "I like" and "I don't like".  Read more...

If You Want to be a Good Person, It Does Matter What You Believe - Father Robert Barron

Infallibility Doesn't Mean Never Having to Say You're Sorry - Mark Shea

There is no greater scandal among moderns than the Catholic Church's claim to infallibility. And who can blame them? For as this century begins, it does look as though only a cretin could seriously believe any institution possesses modest integrity, much less infallibility.   Read more...

Inquisition in the Catholic Church - Benjamin D. Wiker

To assess the Inquisition properly, we must distinguish between the principle which undergirded it, and the actions of those responsible for implementing the principle.  Read more...

Introduction - No One Sees God: The Dark Night of Atheists and Believers - Michael Novak

"This book is one of the most lyrical and moving reflections on God I have encountered. It is also remarkably generous, both to believers and nonbelievers. Most helpfully it is about how to pray, and how to suffer through the dark night in which answers, and communication, seem absent. A remarkable book by a remarkable man." - Peggy Noonan   Read more...

Introduction to Lent: Prayer - Mike Aquilina

We should plant prayers throughout the day like vines.   Read more...

Introduction: The Lost World of Moral Common Sense - J. Budziszewski

We are passing through an eerie phase of history in which the things that everyone really knows are treated as unheard of, a time in which the elements of common decency are themselves attacked as indecent. But J. Budziszewski sets out to explore the lost world of common moral truths — what we all really know about right and wrong. His bracing account shows us how to address the uncertain, the disoriented, and the self-deceived among our neighbors in a way which may bring them back to moral sanity.  Read more...

Is Christmas a Fairy Story? - Benjamin Wiker

Over a century ago, the proud materialist-secularists of the day taunted the great Christian apologist, G. K. Chesterton, declaring to him that Christianity was built upon fairy stories. Chesterton's response was an even more proud, "Yes indeed!"  Read more...

Is religion a force for good? - Roger Scruton

Just as there are bad people with religious beliefs, so there are good people without them. So what does religion add to morality and why is the addition good?  Read more...

Is There Sex in Heaven? - Peter Kreeft

We cannot know what X-in-Heaven is unless we know what X is. We cannot know what sex in Heaven is unless we know what sex is. We cannot know what in Heaven's name sex is unless we know what on earth sex is.  Read more...

Islam and the Closing of the Secular Mind - Samuel Gregg

One of the West's greatest impediments in its struggle against religious extremism may well the fact that the secular part of its soul turns out to be far less enlightened than anyone imagined possible.  Read more...

It can’t be wrong if it doesn’t hurt anyone - J. Budziszewski

I stand on the fact that God ultimately defines what is right and wrong … my friend defines his entire moral code upon the statement, "As long as I am not directly hurting anyone other than me, then nothing that I do is wrong." I don't … have an intelligent response … do you?   Read more...

Jerusalem's Rational God - Rodney Stark

Modernity developed only in the West — in Europe and North America.  Nowhere else did science and democracy arise; nowhere else was slavery outlawed.  The question is, Why?  The answer — at least the most important answer to that question — is Christianity.  Read more...
