The Left, The Right and Dominus Iesus - Peter Kreeft

Dominus Iesus is one of the most important Church documents of modern times, because it defends the most unpopular aspect of the Church's claim today – its "absolutism." And because it overcomes the dualism of "liberal" vs. "conservative" by which the media classify and evaluate everything.  Read more...

The Legacy’: Clinton as History’s Worst President - Rev. James V. Schall, S.J.

When asked what I thought of this president, I usually replied, in my jaundiced, freedom-of-speech opinion, that “from what I can observe, he was the worst man ever to be president, and he was the worst president.” Compared to previous presidents both on the score of integrity and accomplishment, I place the president from 1992-2000 at the bottom of both lists.  Read more...

The Pope and Islam - George Weigel

Over the 18 years I have known Joseph Ratzinger, now Pope Benedict XVI, I've formed some distinct impressions of the man.  Read more...

The Pope on 'Love in Truth' - Father Robert Sirico
