By Fr. Shenan J. Boquet, Human Life International - Consider the following: Progressives claim to believe in “tolerance” above all else. But it is they who have proved to be the worst offenders when it comes to demonizing and vilifying those who deviate one iota from the shape-shifting progressive orthodoxy. The same progressives who incessantly talk about the value of “dialogue” are those who have spawned so-called cancel culture, in which mobs of their confreres conscientiously strive to drum out of polite society anyone who dares say – or believe – anything that is less than 100% “woke.”
By Michelle Malkin, The CNSNews - The Refugee Act of 1980 created the Office of Refugee Resettlement and office of U.S. Coordinator for Refugee Affairs and raised the annual ceiling of admissions to 50,000… Under Obama, that number soared to nearly 100,000 annually. The idea that we've abandoned our humanitarian leadership role because of this refugee resettlement reduction is ludicrous. Overall, since 1975, the U.S. has resettled more than 3 million refugees. Under Trump, the U.S. still accepted more refugees than any other country in both 2017 and 2018.
By Donald DeMarco, Crisis Magazine - On the night of October 29, 2019, Meghan Murphy, a freelance writer, spoke at a Toronto library to an audience of roughly 100 people, mostly women. Her topic, entirely unwarranted just a few years ago, was “Gender Identity: What Does It Mean for Society, The Law, and Women?” Her main point was that “allowing men to identify as women” endangers and undermines women’s rights. Murphy identifies herself as a feminist and her presentation was hosted by a group called, “Radical Feminists Unite.”
By Michael Pakaluk, The Catholic Thing - (M)y general impression is of a deep disaffection with Christendom as it has existed for centuries, and an attempt to replace it with a different structure, located in the Amazon, at least at first. This structure will have its own rite, its own seminary, with its own curriculum, and its own cadre of married priests and woman deacons… The document at times speaks as though, in a spirit of pluralism, it is proposing an additional thing, which will exist side-by-side with the old.
