+  Government Capitulates—Catholic Priest Allowed to Hold Religious Services at Naval Base Again; Chapel Doors Open to Catholic Parishioners

  • Description: The Government capitulated just one day after the Thomas More Law Center filed a federal lawsuit challenging the Department of Defense’s actions which prohibited a Catholic Priest from celebrating Mass at a Naval base under threat of arrest and barred the Chapel to Catholic religious services due to the recent government shutdown. Erin Mersino filed the lawsuit in the Federal District Court in Washington DC on behalf of Father Ray Leonard and Fred Naylor, a parishioner. Erin explains the case and why it is still alive and important despite the end of the shutdown.

+  National Catholic Reporter: “Gay marriage foes change their tactics, but not their tune” – A Response

  • Description: The National Catholic Reporter last week published a piece by Heidi Schlumpf entitled “Gay marriage foes change their tactics, but not their tune.” In it she says “opponents of same-sex marriage, who consider themselves defenders of so-called traditional marriage, know how to analyze poll data, too. So it's not surprising that there has been a noticeable revision to their arguments.” She particularly takes aim at our friend Bill May who was a key player in getting Prop 8 passed in CA. He joins us to respond to this column.
