Washington D.C., Jan 12, 2016 / 03:41 pm (CNA).- Since its first introduction, the federal contraception mandate has drawn controversy, with hundreds of employers saying it forces them to violate their sincerely-held religious beliefs.   Now, one lawyer is arguing that the Obama administration unfairly relied on tax law to determine which institutions were religious enough to get an exemption from the mandate.“The distinction they ended up making was simply whether you file a 990 [tax form] or not. That’s an absurd distinction to make,” Carrie Severino of the Judicial Crisis Network told CNA.“At the end of the day, it’s really a matter of whether we’re going to make religious freedom rights depend on arbitrary details of the tax law, or whether they should really be based on someone’s sincere religious beliefs,” she added.According to internal e-mails obtained through Freedom of Information Act requests, the administration us...

Vatican City, Jan 12, 2016 / 03:02 am (CNA/EWTN News).- In his new book on God's mercy, Pope Francis explains that his oft-quoted words “who am I to judge”, about a homosexual person who is searching for the Lord with a good will, is simply his reflection on Church teaching found in the catechism.The Name of God is Mercy, to be released Jan. 12, is a book-length interview of Pope Francis by Italian journalist Andrea Tornielli. The book is meant to “reveal the heart of Francis and his vision,” according to Tornielli's foreward. He had wanted to ask the Pope about mercy and forgiveness, “to analyze what those words mean to him, as a man and a priest.”The journalist asked Pope Francis about his experience as a confessor to homosexual persons and about his “who am I to judge” comment, made during his in-flight press conference from Rio de Janeiro to Rome July 28, 2013.“On that occasion I said this:  If a person is gay an...
Washington D.C., Jan 12, 2016 / 02:22 am (CNA/EWTN News).- Surrogate pregnancy is back in the news with two high profile cases where two different surrogate mothers of triplets rejected requests to have abortions. And one organization is responding by saying the practice is so unethical it should be banned.“The problems with surrogacy aren’t limited just to here in the U.S. – they’re universal,” said Christopher White, director of research and education at the California-based Center for Bioethics and Culture.White’s organization advocates for a complete ban on surrogacy. He said surrogacy “commodifies human life” and exploits women, especially those from a low socio-economic status. “It’s indistinguishable from the buying and selling of life,” he told CNA Jan. 8. “Many of the children conceived through surrogacy can’t help but to feel as if they are mere products and that they were brought into exist...
(Vatican Radio) The Vatican newspaper L’Osservatore Romano remembered David Bowie in its Tuesday edition, saying the influential rock star was “never banal.”David Bowie died from cancer on Sunday, at the age of sixty-nine. His 25th album – Blackstar – was released just two days before his death.The newspaper noted Bowie’s five decade career “combined rock music with an artistic rigour” which seemed to contradict the “ambiguous image” he used early in his career to “attract the attention of the media.”“One might even say that, beyond the apparent excesses, the legacy of David Bowie” – the article reads – “is surrounded by its own sort of personal sobriety, expressed even in his lean – almost threadlike – physique.”The newspaper went on to say Bowie was “never dull,” and credited his frequent incursions in other art forms such as painting, the...
