Statement on the Status of Marriage in Canada - Daniel Cere and Douglas Farrow

Over the past year four Canadian courts have ruled that marriage, recognized under the common law as "the union of one man and one woman," is inconsistent with constitutional values in modern Canadian society and offends the equality rights of homosexuals under section 15 of the Charter.  Read more...

Sterilization: Why It Is Wrong - Fr. William Saunders

I recently saw the movie Cheaper by the Dozen. In it, the father, played by Steve Martin, states that he has had a vasectomy. This has caused some discussion among friends, especially because some people think that after 12 children one logically should have a vasectomy. Why does the Church teach that sterilization is wrong?  Read more...

Stories You Might Not See in the Mainstream Media - Zenit

Straight Talk - Leon J. Suprenant, Jr.

Our society has largely lost its sense of the intrinsic worth of the human person, so we tend to define ourselves through external, secondary characteristics. That is never good, but it's especially tragic when those with same-sex attractions define themselves as "gay."  Read more...

Surgical Sex - Paul McHugh

When the practice of sex-change surgery first emerged back in the early 1970s, I would often remind its advocating psychiatrists that with other patients, alcoholics in particular, they would quote the Serenity Prayer, “God, give me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.”  Read more...

Talk to Kids about Sex, Love, and Character - Thomas Lickona

As parents and educators, we worry about many areas of our children's decision-making — sex, drugs, drinking, drinking and driving — where the wrong choices can carry a high cost. But we sense that they are most vulnerable, most at risk emotionally as well as physically, in the sexual area of their lives. The damage to our children's health, heart, and character from premature sexual involvement may go deeper, and last longer, than the effects of any other mistakes they might make.  Read more...

Teaching Moments on Sexuality - Janet E. Smith

On several occasions, Catholic parents have approached me about how to talk to their heterosexual teenagers about homosexuality. Many teenagers are very accepting of the homosexual orientation; they think it is just as natural as a heterosexual orientation.  Read more...

Testimony Before the Massachusetts Senate Committee Studying Gay Marriage - Dr. Jeffrey Satinover

It is most urgent that these deliberations be based not only on compassion, and justice, but on the factual truth as well. Indeed, unless resting upon truth, neither justice nor compassion can long endure against shifts in sentiment.  Read more...

That depends what you mean by 'gay' - Father Raymond J. de Souza

The AIDS Pandemic: Saving the Next Generation - Her Excellency Janet K. Museveni

While the HIV virus continues to spread unchecked across the rest of sub-Saharan Africa, in Uganda the rate of HIV infection has dropped from 18 percent in 1991 to 6 percent in 2001. Uganda's First Lady, Her Excellency Janet K. Museveni, explains how her country’s aggressive effort to promote abstinence outside marriage, and fidelity within, was the engine behind Africa's only success story in fighting AIDS.   Read more...

The Assault on the Boy Scouts of America - Midge Decter

Let us take a few minutes to think about a 12-year-old American boy living in the early twenty-first century. Now, there are a number of things to say about this boy. Chances are, for instance, that absent the requisite amount of parental pressure, he is likely to be a bit of a slob: his room piled with trash, his hands dirty, his socks sliding down into untied shoes.  Read more...

The Christian View of Sex: A Time for Apologetics, not Apologies - Janet Smith

While the fact that our society is suffering greatly from sexual confusion and sexual misconduct is not a novel insight, what is needed is a better understanding and apologetic of the Christian truths about sexuality.  Read more...

The Clarifying Light of Humanae Vitae - MARY CLAIRE KENDALL

Twelve years ago this summer, Tina Turner belted out her song about “love,” asking, What’s love got to do, got to do with it? What’s love but a sweet old-fashioned notion? Who needs a heart when a heart can be broken?” Her question is a fitting commentary on the current state of confusion over conjugal love and the resulting decline of marriage. But, no one, it seems, is willing to speak to the root causes of this decline.  Read more...
