Human Dignity


After D-Day, what endures

Sheila Liaugminas | 10 June 2014
The more time passes, the more we can appreciate the timelessness of that historic event.

Francis and the global crisis of human trafficking

Sheila Liaugminas | 03 June 2014
Ever since he’s been pope, Francis has talked about this problem often and called for specific action. His sense of urgency is clear.

Have we lost our ability to disagree?

Sheila Liaugminas | 15 April 2014
We have devolved.

Pope Francis provokes in Evangelii Gaudium

Sheila Liaugminas | 03 December 2013
He’s done it again. Comforted the afflicted and afflicted the comfortable.

Malala deserved the Nobel Peace Prize

Sheila Liaugminas | 15 October 2013
But then again, that award has lost some luster in the modern era.

The latest breaking Pope Francis story

Sheila Liaugminas | 21 September 2013
The media didn’t catch Francis’s latest. They’re too busy recycling their first round of misreporting on him.

House votes to ban late term abortion

Sheila Liaugminas | 21 June 2013
The horrors revealed in the trial of notorious abortionist Kermit Gosnell shook even pro-choice citizens and it won’t be the same again for the abortion movement. Which is probably why a bill to ban late term abortion made it to a floor vote in the House of Representatives this week, and the rhetoric about it got so dramatic.

Pope Francis surprises

Sheila Liaugminas | 19 March 2013
It hasn’t yet been a week since he was elected, but the man announced as Cardinal Bergoglio/Pope Francis who first appeared to the world on the loggia of St. Peter’s and stood stiff and straight and speechless for what seemed a long time took only a few minutes to throw the world off balance. In a good way.

To really honor Dr. King

Sheila Liaugminas | 22 January 2013
First, respect the fact that he was the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Reverend first.

American culture and politics going forward

Sheila Liaugminas | 04 December 2012
The president made that word his campaign slogan followed by a period. Now it should be followed by a question mark.

Work and leisure in right order

Sheila Liaugminas | 04 September 2012
Many people overdo their work life and many people mishandle their leisure time and many are probably the same people. Labor Day is a good time to consider what we’re celebrating and how.

Letter to the hotel industry

Sheila Liaugminas | 10 July 2012
Dear CEOs: Please respect human dignity and the common good of society, and rid your hotels of pornography.

Seeing the human face in mass media

| 15 May 2012
We are a cynical lot these days. News people feed into that and drive us deeper into identity politics and divisive culture battles and snarky social media communications, and we are willingly complicit. It takes a startling reality check to make us even think about what we’re doing to ourselves and each other.

The global village priest

Sheila Liaugminas | 01 May 2011
From the moment he passed away, he was called John Paul the Great. Now, he can be called Blessed John Paul II. Which is acknowledging what he was.

This crucial moment in Egypt

Sheila Liaugminas | 12 February 2011
The cross-section of different…and wildly different…views on the Egyptian revolution coming in from around the world boggles the mind. But then, the revolution flummoxed the world.

Grieving Parents Act

Sheila Liaugminas | 19 January 2011
When a pregnant woman goes to the doctor, he is treating two patients. When he aborts one, it’s called ‘the product of conception’ or ‘fetal tissue’. When miscarriage ends the life of the child….what to say on the records may depend on which state they’re in.

If King were alive today

Sheila Liaugminas | 18 January 2011
Dr. Martin Luther King lives on in his legacy. There are many voices speaking for what that means today.

The new orthodoxy of “knowledge professionals”

Sheila Liaugminas | 04 October 2010
The Religion Newswriters Association held their annual meeting recently. Their keynote speaker challenged them: be honest.

Untethered to logic and natural law

Sheila Liaugminas | 01 October 2010

"To say that safeguards for individual liberty do not have any intrinsic worth is to say that individual liberty does not have any intrinsic worth. To say that individual liberty does not have any intrinsic worth is to say that the individual human person does not have any intrinsic worth. This is to deny that we are endowed with rights by our Creator. To deny that is in effect to deny that there is a Creator. This is atheism and nihilism no less than moral relativism." Who said this?


Doing injustice in the name of justice

Sheila Liaugminas | 30 September 2010
What would a totally tolerant society look like?

Sheila Reports promises a perspective here that you may not be getting in mainstream media and the politically charged blogosphere. Don’t expect political correctness, because politics doesn’t determine what’s correct. This space is grounded in the natural law and moral order. And it expects civility, goodwill and an openness to truth and reason.
