Sometimes the simple act of tucking a little one into bed seems like the implementation of a military campaign. Another thing all parents share is the desire for a quality education for their children. Preparing our ... (more)

Obama Welcomes the Pope but Not the Pope's Core Beliefs about Life and Liberty

by Rob Schwarzwalder

Rob Schwarzwalder is Senior Vice President at Family Research Council. This article appeared in The Stream on September 24, 2015. President Obama’s remarks upon greeting the Pope at the White House generally were lovely. There was also, within them, a great deal of moral irony. Consider the following excerpts: From my time working in impoverished neighborhoods with the Catholic Church in Chicago, to my travels as President, I’ve seen firsthand how, every single day, Catholic communities, priests, nuns, laity are feeding ...
