Moral Atomic Bomb - Bernard-Henri Lévy

One can find these cartoons mediocre. One can perceive in them, as I do, a certain similarity with the anti-Semitic and racist caricatures of the 1930s or '50s.  Read more...

Newman and Liberalism - Marvin R. O'Connell

Nietzsche and the Church Scandals - Fred Martinez

Therapeutic approaches have a basic assumption that is not Christian. Their starting point is not the Christian worldview, which is summed up in the parable of the prodigal son: a fallen and sinful world with persons needing God the Father to forgive them.

Nun Sense: Women in the Catholic Church - Kathryn Jean Lopez

Our Big Problem - Theodore Dalrymple

These days, it seems, almost everyone has a habit that he can't control. For millions of people, this habit is overeating. Never have so many human mastodons bestridden the earth as now.   Read more...

P Is for Poison - Roger Scruton

Let us consider the three great public poisons of our time, what they are doing to us, and why we find it so difficult to take action against them: political correctness, pornography, and plastic.  Read more...

Palestrina Was Not in Vogue - George Sim Johnston

A few years ago, while visiting college campuses with my son, I witnessed an odd but recurring phenomenon: Our student guide would be showing us around a beautiful New England campus — all arches and spires and ivy — when we would abruptly stop in front of a building of incredible ugliness.  Read more...
