The Travesty of Two Daddies

by

Every once in a while, I come across a story that stops me in my tracks. Like the Italian high court’s decision to overturn a pedophile’s conviction because his 11-year-old victim says she’s “in love.” Or the Australian judge who pointed out that easy access to abortion and contraception may lead to the legal sanction of incest, as it […]

Conscience Counts

by

America has always been a nation with great respect for the right of conscience. As a people, we like the idea that a person should follow their heart, go with their gut, do what feels right. Our laws have traditionally followed this course by according deference to individual conscience on a whole host of matters. […]

Time for a Leaner, Smarter Penal System

by

This week the Washington Post drew attention to a new Pew poll indicating that a majority of Americans believe it’s time to move away from the policy of mandatory minimum sentencing in nonviolent criminal cases. Many people probably don’t realize that in many instances involving criminal sentencing, judges aren’t actually permitted to do their jobs and judge. Their discretion […]

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. As expected, given the controversial nature of the issue at hand, most of the ire is reflexive and purely visceral. It’s unlikely that […]
