The Obama administration is proposing new rules to prevent transgender discrimination in health care. Let's hope that they are reasonable this time and do not ask Catholic hospitals to do things we should not be asked to do. I am beyond tired of having the LGBT community get a veto in this administration while they think nothing of kicking the Church - or the AFL-CIO (cf. TPP) - to the curb. Do they think the Human Rights Campaign fund will start providing health care to one in five Americans?

At US Catholic, Steve Schneck reflects on his family's union roots and why they still matter.  

Not to be missed, Cardinal Raymond Burke speaks at Steubenville the day the pope ignored his advice on annulment reform. He is not calling Francis an anti-pope but listening to +Burke, you can be sure he does not see much joy in the Gospel.
