ANDREW C. McCARTHY:: When Obama Voted For Infanticide – NRO

Peter has beaten me to the punch. What I personally find most offensive about the HHS mandate is the shock with which it has been met. Why? This is who Barack Obama is. There is no reason to be surprised by this. He is not being pulled to extremes by his base — he is the one doing the pulling. Obama’s abortion extremism is such that, as a state legislator, he ...

WUERL, COLSON, SOLOVEICHIK:: United We Stand for Religious Freedom – WSJ

Stories involving a Catholic, a Protestant and a Jew typically end with a punch line. We wish that were the case here, but what brings us together is no laughing matter: the threat now posed by government policy to that basic human freedom, religious liberty. Last month the federal Department of Health and Human Services announced that the Affordable Care Act requires ... Go To Article

RELIGION:: West Falters in Defense of Christians, Who Are Being Persecuted in 131 Countries – The New York Sun

RELIGION:: West Falters in Defense of Christians, Who Are Being Persecuted in 131 Countries – The New York Sun

Perhaps the gravest under-publicized atrocity in the world is the persecution of Christians. A comprehensive Pew Forum study last year found that Christians are persecuted in 131 countries containing 70% of the world’s population, out of 197 countries in the world (if Palestine, Taiwan, South Sudan, and the Vatican are included). Best estimates are that about 200 ... Go To Article

FROM THE LEFT:: E.J. DIONNE Jr.:OBAMA’S breach of faith over contraceptive ruling – WaPo

One of Barack Obama’s great attractions as a presidential candidate was his sensitivity to the feelings and intellectual concerns of religious believers. That is why it is so remarkable that he utterly botched the admittedly difficult question of how contraceptive services should be treated under the new health-care law. His administration mishandled this decision ... Go To Article

BARONE:: Romney appeals to white collars, Santorum to blue | WashEx

Rick Santorum won big victories in three small contests in the Republican presidential race last Tuesday. In doing so he reshaped the oft-reshaped nomination battle once again. But he has not installed himself as the favorite, and neither he nor Mitt Romney has established himself as the candidate who can do best in the general election. These were small contests not ...

FRED BARNES:: What Was He Thinking? | Weekly Standard

When Heritage Action, the new lobbying arm of the Heritage Foundation, scored the votes of House Republicans last year, a furor erupted. Republicans were incensed because their votes on a number of small, nice-sounding issues were counted, often reducing their conservative rating. A classic example was the firefighter grant program that 147 House Republicans voted to ... Go To Article

BYRON YORK:: After wins, Santorum targets Romney’s native state | WashEx

Thursday was just the second time Rick Santorum's campaign has ever raised more than a million dollars in a single day. The first was Wednesday, right after Santorum swept GOP contests in Minnesota, Colorado and Missouri. That's what winning will do. Santorum is now enjoying the bounce he never got after his belated victory in Iowa. The question is, what is he going to ... Go To Article

FRISBEE BEACH BAN overblown, Los Angeles officials say – Yahoo! News

LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Los Angeles County officials who have been widely mocked since reports surfaced that they had imposed a $1,000 fine for throwing Frisbees and footballs on the beach said on Thursday that the rule change had been badly misunderstood. In fact, the county had only eased restrictions that have been in place for more than 40 years and carry a much ... Go To Article
