What is ‘wrong’ at the IRS?
Sheila Liaugminas | 24 May 2013
It’s like asking congressional interrogators to define the meaning of ‘is’. In the growing IRS scandal under congressional investigation, the IRS chief who has the most to say refuses to say anything other than that she did nothing wrong.
“Obama’s campaign to silence”
Sheila Liaugminas | 21 May 2013
That, by the usually Obama friendly Christian Science Monitor, is a pretty apt description of what’s going on lately.
IRS targeting scandal grows, among others
Sheila Liaugminas | 17 May 2013
There is bi-partisan outrage over the widening scope of the revelation that the powerful Internal Revenue Service has been targeting groups said to be conservative for the past couple of years. But the IRS target list was much wider than that, and the agency’s treatment of these groups and citizens is both shocking and disturbing.
Gosnell convicted, Castro charged
Sheila Liaugminas | 14 May 2013
Mother’s Day just passed with fair weather and loving celebrations in much of the country. But it was surrounded by a perfect storm.
Gosnell uncovers what Roe wrought
Sheila Liaugminas | 07 May 2013
And undercover videos show Gosnell is no ‘aberration.’ Some honest advocates of ‘choice’ are seriously reconsidering their whole premise and belief system in light of recent news. While some ‘abortion rights’ activists are coming unglued over these revelations.
Big Abortion exposed
Sheila Liaugminas | 02 May 2013
Revelations about the abortion industry are coming out at a new pace now and in greater detail than ever. It’s forcing a very public confrontation with the truth about abortion and getting people talking as sone never have before. The cover-ups are getting uncovered, and Big Abortion is getting unprecedented exposure.
Kermit Gosnell: the back alley abortionist Roe ensconced
Sheila Liaugminas | 30 April 2013
But that’s giving away one of the punchlines of a very lengthy, gut-wrenching, soul-searching article in the Wall Street Journal the other day that, taken together with the commentaries and articles linked within it, is filled with punches to the gut. It may be the best handling of the worst abortion news we’ve heard publicly since the news that the Supreme Court made abortion legal with its Roe decision.
Gosnell: “The logic of the abortion license”
Sheila Liaugminas | 23 April 2013
Not every abortionist, nor even most, nor maybe even any other abortionist commits the horrific violations of human life that Kermit Gosnell did, the details of which are on the public record in his ongoing trial. But the fact is, every abortionist ends a human life.
Boston Strong: Grace under relentless pressure
Sheila Liaugminas | 22 April 2013
The day after last Monday’s Boston marathon bombings, the former mayor who embodies the great big heart and soul of that great city was defiant and determined. They not only responded to the terror with great humanity that day he told me on Tuesday, they would come back stronger and in greater numbers for next year’s Patriot’s Day landmark event. Nobody could have yet known what the week would still hold for Bostonians, and how drained they would be by the end of it. But, thank God, it ended.
Another senseless act of violence: Boston Marathon
Sheila Liaugminas | 16 April 2013
Acts of violence never make sense, no matter how this one turns out to be explained. Every one of these random attacks assaults our sensibilities and rattles whatever semblence of security we still have in our daily lives. We can’t live in fear, so soon after these things happen, we go back to busy life as usual. But with a little more dis-ease. What else can we do?
HHS contraceptive mandate threatens more than religious freedom
Sheila Liaugminas | 10 April 2013
It’s an assault on sensibilities. Worse, it’s perpetuating the real ‘war on women’ along with the myths about a phony one. Because the drugs being claimed under the umbrella of ‘women’s preventive health services’ are actually dangerous for women’s health. Who’s talking about that?
African-American Clergy Coalition speaks out on marriage
Sheila Liaugminas | 05 April 2013
Truth is, African American pastors have been engaged in the real civil rights battle for decades, fighting to end violence and respect human dignity in their communities, while largely ignored by the media. Now that their voices are speaking out on the hot button issue of marriage law, they’re getting attention. But some media seemed not to have noticed that the day they gave the story prominence was the anniversary of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s assassination. Oh, the irony.
Dear MSNBC: Do a series on Human Life 101
Sheila Liaugminas | 02 April 2013
I was considering making that a question as a header. But there’s no question.
We should be able to talk about marriage
Sheila Liaugminas | 30 March 2013
Exchanges were bad enough back when Proposition 8 was voted on in California, and again in the subsequent court appeals of it when people were yelling at the opposition and demonstrations got physically confrontational and some high profile people even got death threats. The passion and vitriol grew and spread after that. This week, when the Supreme Court began hearing arguments from both sides of the marriage divide, media coverage showed that we’re not having a debate of different views. We’re having a culture war.
The trials of marriage
26 March 2013
The US Supreme Court hears opening arguments on same-sex marriage law Tuesday. It’s been on trial for years.
