by Carder What we have heard from the private Catholic systems is that they are going to be respectful of LGBT people, and we actually don’t doubt that… but here’s the question for us — it’s different if a person goes in with a broken arm. We know they’ll be treated with respect. The question [...]

During the Christmas season, billions of people set aside their normal routines to decorate their homes, send out greeting cards, buy gifts, go to Christmas parties, attend [...]

Even the Pope and Cardinal Dolan have been lauding South African leader Nelson Mandela following his death earlier this week of natural causes at age 95. But I can’t.

[A] Kansas stem cell research center that, by law, won’t use stem cells culled from human embryos also is taking off….

The right to own a gun is a far more settled issue constitutionally, politically and legally in this country, but not even the National Rifle Association would dream to argue that we have a right to free guns, provided by our employers. If your boss were required to give you a gun, your new employer-provided Glock still wouldn’t be free because non-cash compensation is still compensation. The costs to the employer are fungible, which means whether it’s a pistol or a pill, the cost is still coming out of your paycheck — and your coworkers’ paychecks….
