‘Fortnight for Freedom’ launches
Sheila Liaugminas | 25 June 2012
Never have the US bishops been so unified and fully engaged over one issue in this nation. But the HHS mandate was the bridge too far in this administration’s push to expand its control over the nation and its citizens. ‘It put our usual work on steroids’, one bishop told me on radio.

Obama ally turns back, again
Sheila Liaugminas | 22 June 2012
Sr. Carol Keehan and the very large Catholic Health Association network were instrumental in helping President Obama get the contentious health care overhaul passed.

Can Ireland save civilization again?
Sheila Liaugminas | 07 June 2012
During the Dark Ages, the heritage of Western civilization would have been lost if not for heroic men and women of unconquered Ireland. Times are pretty dark right now in the West, and Ireland once again remains unfallen to anti-life barbarians. Might the Irish save civilization again?
