What the Wen Firing Says About Planned Parenthood

July was not a good month for the former CEO of Planned Parenthood Federation of America. And I am not taking about Cecile Richards. No. I am referring to Leana Wen who after suffering a miscarriage early in July, also suffered a job loss when on July 16 the Planned Parenthood board of directors showed [...]

Pro-Abortion Politician to Speak at Boston College

The Boston College Law School has invited Congressman Robert Scott (D-VA) to speak at its spring commencement ceremony. Many universities, including Catholic schools such as Boston College, invite politicians to speak at commencement ceremonies, and Scott’s status as an alumnus of Boston College would seem to make him a fitting choice for this honor. However, [...]

Catholic Colleges Collude with Planned Parenthood

Despite the Catholic Church’s unambiguous teaching on the “intrinsic evil” of abortion, Catholic Colleges throughout the country continue to promote student internships and volunteer opportunities at Planned Parenthood—the country’s largest abortion provider. In fact, at the same time Boston’s Cardinal Sean O’Malley, OFM Cap, Chairman of the Committee on Pro-Life Activities of the U. S. Conference [...]

Georgetown’s Catholic Apologist for Islam

A non-Muslim activist lawyer has filed charges of discrimination against the Catholic University of America with the District of Columbia Office of Human Rights (OHR). The university is discriminating against Muslim students, he contends, by “forcing” them to conduct Islamic prayer services in rooms filled with crucifixes and other symbols of the Catholic faith. The [...]

Redeeming Alma Mater

As the reader may have realized, I'm a man of many hats. Sometimes I wear the mortarboard of a college English teacher; at others, the battered fedora of a patriotic, pro-family columnist. For the past few columns, as an observer of economics, I've donned the green eye-shade, but this week I'm putting on the Tyrolean [...]

More than a few eyebrows were raised when the new president of The Catholic University of America was named: John H. Garvey, Dean of the Boston College School of Law.  Most people know Boston College, in recent years, has become the epicenter of Catholic dissent.  And although Garvey is was not a name familiar to [...]

Questions Raised About New President of CUA

Garvey, Dean of the Boston College School of Law.  Most people know Boston College, in recent years, has become the epicenter of Catholic dissent.  And although Garvey is was not a name familiar to [...]

The Apple Argument Against Abortion

In this Crisis Magazine classic, philosopher Peter Kreeft says that if you know what an apple is, you know enough to recognize the truth of the pro-life argument.   I doubt there are many readers here who are pro-choice. Why, then, do I write an argument against abortion? Why preach to the choir?   Preaching [...]

Confessions of a Computer Hater

What do you get in this Crisis Magazine classic when you combine Peter Kreeft with a computer? A very entertaining meltdown.     Make no mistake: I do not merely hate computers. I loathe, fear, despise, curse, and have constant torture and dismemberment fantasies about them. I know there are others out there like me, [...]

How to Win the Culture War

In this Crisis Magazine classic, Peter Kreeft outlines a three step plan for winning the culture war, and it doesn't require money, power, or the media.    To win any war, the three most necessary things to know are (1) that you are at war, (2) who your enemy is, and (3) what weapons or [...]

Running the Church… Freddie Mac Style

There was a brief controversy in the summer of 2003, when a group of liberal and progressive Catholic figures held a closed-door meeting to discuss Church matters with several high-level prelates, including Archbishop Wilton Gregory and Theodore Cardinal McCarrick. Deal W. Hudson and others at the time observed that the group had a number of [...]

Boston College Versus The U.S. Military

As associate dean at a state law school, I receive promotional materials from numerous other law schools. Usually they go straight into the trash can, but I was on my way to the airport for a long flight, and the cover of the spring/summer 2006 issue of BC Law Magazine, published by Jesuit-affiliated Boston College, [...]
