Where Are the Women?

Surely you remember that question, key to the rise of “reproductive health” rock star Sandra Fluke, supposedly answered only by the ladies of the Democratic convention, who stand enthusiastically with the president in insisting that religious institutions and individuals comply with curtailed religious liberty in the name of a radical redefinition of what basic health is. Well, there are plenty of women here, insisting that “invoking ‘women’s health’ to shout down deeply held beliefs is a mistake”:

 

Read my interview today with Helen M. Alvaré, editor of the new book Breaking Through: Catholic Women Speak for Themselves, an outgrowth of the Women Speak for Themselves letter to the president (which first appeared on National Review Online) protesting the HHS mandate’s assault on religious liberty (34,000 women’s signatures and counting).

Plenty of women defend religious liberty and they have been for months. Will you join them in the next 40 or so days, sharing what we’ve known and believed about religious liberty? Educating about the choices this election?

Neither was he a prophet. Jesus said "a prophet hath no honor in his own country." Prophets take adversarial ... Read More

Why We Can’t Have Wakanda

SPOILERS AHEAD Black Panther is a really good movie that lives up to the hype in just about every way. Surely someone at Marvel Studios had an early doubt, reading the script and thinking: “Wait, we’re going to have hundreds of African warriors in brightly colored tribal garb, using ancient weapons, ...

Obstruction Confusions

In his Lawfare critique of one of my several columns about the purported obstruction case against President Trump, Gabriel Schoenfeld loses me — as I suspect he will lose others — when he says of himself, “I do not think I am Trump-deranged.” Gabe graciously expresses fondness for me, and the feeling is ...
