There is no ‘Tea Party-Backed Challenger’ to Mitch McConnell

Kentucky 2012 election results

This article about Harry Reid at Politico is, in a word, silly. Politico: Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid is enjoying the possibility of a tea party backed challenger to Minority Leader Mitch McConnell. “He tried to make love to the tea party and they didn’t like it,” Reid quipped about McConnell to at an event […]

Did George Zimmerman Break the Fifth Commandment?

St. Maria Goretti

Several readers have suggested to me that because George Zimmerman shot Trayvon Martin with a gun, and because the gunshot resulted in Martin’s death, this means that Zimmerman violated the Fifth Commandment, “Thou shalt not kill.” My view on this is that Zimmerman did not break the Fifth Commandment, however Trayvon Martin did.

A Tribute to Irena Sendler, One of My Heroines

Irena Sendler is one of those people who never really got enough recognition for the good she did on earth. Given that there is a lot of coverage today about the passing of Helen Thomas, a White House correspondent who was openly anti-Semitic, I thought it would be good to post a tribute to Irena […]

Barack Obama Drives the Race Wedge Deeper

Gray is Catholic and black, so he writes from the perspective of someone who understands both a Catholic view of human dignity and what it is like to be black and male. When standing before the world […]
