By Ken Webster, Jr., KPRC - The First Amendment of the Constitution clearly states we have a right to "freedom of religion" with, in this case, an emphasis on the word "of"… It does not say you have freedom "from religion". The difference is notable.

By Philip Kosloski, Aleteia - St. Francis gave the following exhortation that clearly displays his passion, Let the entire man be seized with fear; let the whole world tremble; let heaven exult when Christ, the Son of the Living God, is on the altar in the hands of the priest.

LifeSiteNews staff - The Vatican announced today that Archbishop Wilton D. Gregory of Atlanta will be the successor of embattled Cardinal Donald Wuerl to lead the Archdiocese of Washington D.C., one of the most prominent sees in the United States... Numerous faithful Catholic laity are outraged over the appointment of Gregory. The Archbishop has a history of showing support for homosexuality, contrary to Catholic teaching, along with other unorthodox positions... The group “Catholic Laity for Orthodox Bishops and Reform” had urged the Holy See to “seek out a worthy candidate who is without ties to Joseph Cardinal Bernardin, Mr. Theodore McCarrick, or Donald Cardinal Wuerl.”
