Immigration, Amnesty, and the Rule of Law

by

In the ongoing Kentucky U.S. Senate race, both candidates have accused the other of supporting “amnesty” for “illegal immigrants” and of not upholding the rule of law. Immigration is a complex issue, and the laws governing it are even more complex. Political campaigns, at least in our day, are not well-suited to serious debates about […]

Dangerous Liaisons: Martha Coakley and Bernard Baran

by

Justice is obscured when prosecutors use criminal convictions to bolster political ambition. Justice is defeated when prosecutors deny their mistakes to get elected. The French word, “liaison” comes from an older French word, related to the Latin word, “ligere”, meaning “to bind together.” Somewhere in its tangled etymological history, “liaison” was transformed in common usage […]

After Hobby Lobby Comes Priests for Life — Why We Are Confident

On Monday, June 30, Priests for Life expressed satisfaction with the Supreme Court’s decision in the Hobby Lobby case. Upon further analysis of that decision, we continue to be encouraged by it and by its implications for our own case, which has already been argued in the DC Circuit Court of Appeals, which could issue […]

The Triumph of Law Over Ideology

by

It’s been a week since the Supreme Court issued their ruling on the Hobby Lobby case, and there appears to be no end in sight to the Left’s outrage over the outcome.

New possibilities opened up for plaintiff lawyers last week when a U.N. committee told the Vatican that clergy sex abuse is torture. Whether an instance of clergy sex abuse is torture “is a factual determination to be made on a case by case basis,” said a member of the U.N. committee against torture on Friday. […]

Politics and the Pulpit, Part Three: Churches are Automatically Tax Exempt by Law

It’s an election year again, and unless we’re careful, we can easily be misled by vague assertions about “the dangers of losing our tax-exempt status.” Let me state categorically from the outset: it’s not going to happen, period. In this current series of columns, we are exploring and exploding some of the myths surrounding “tax […]
