    • Description: "On Saturday, September 14, 2013, Citizens for a Pro-Life Society, Priests for Life and the Pro-Life Action League co-sponsored the first annual National Day of Remembrance for Aborted Children, calling on pro-life Americans to honor the gravesites of our unborn brothers and sisters. Solemn prayer vigils were be conducted at these gravesites, of which there are 44 across the United States, as well as at dozens of other sites dedicated in memory of aborted children.

    Making Gay Okay: How Rationalizing Homosexual Behavior Is Changing Everything

    • Description: "Why are Americans being forced to consider homosexual acts as morally acceptable? Why has the US Supreme Court accepted the validity of same-sex "marriage", which, until a decade ago, was unheard of in the history of Western or any other civilization? Where has the "gay rights" movement come from, and how has it so easily conquered America? The answers are in the dynamics of the rationalization of sexual misbehavior. The power of rationalization-the means by which one mentally transforms wrong into right-drives the gay rights movement, gives it its revolutionary character, and makes its advocates indefatigable. The homosexual cause moved naturally from a plea for tolerance to cultural conquest because the security of its rationalization requires universal acceptance. In other words, we all must say that the bad is good. At stake in the rationalization of homosexual behavior is the notion that human beings are ordered to a purpose that is given by their Nature. The understanding that things have an in-built purpose is being replaced by the idea that everything is subject to man's will and power, which is considered to be without limits. This is what the debate over homosexuality is really about-the Nature of reality itself." (Originally aired May 16, 2014)
