  • President Sets A Bad Precedent

    February 15, 2019
    The President has set a bad precedent by declaring a State of Emergency over a manufactured crisis, which will in turn divert money away from legitimate crises in our midst.

The pope spoke in favor of religious freedom and against the moral atrocities which result from a lack thereof. Still, the true test of his aspirational message will be whether it informs policy and practice which reflect a meaningful and universal religious pluralism.
