It’s a curious thing, this absence of any mention of today’s Plan B hearing in the morning papers.

We sent an e-mail alert late Friday to our membership asking them to attend the […]

Opponents in our last two threads say FIC is not truly pro-family unless we adopt the left-wing economic agenda. Now comes Courant columnist Susan Campbell with more free advice: To people who worry that same-sex marriages threaten the institution, I have one powerful, life-changing word for you: adultery.

The Hartford Courant recently held a forum on political blogging in Connecticut…with a panel that didn’t include a single conservative. Don Pesci, one of our state’s best conservative bloggers, responds: When the Hartford Courant recently hosted a forum on blogging, no conservative bloggers were represented on the panel that included McEnroe, introduced as a blogger, […]

From the Connecticut Catholic Conference: Senate Bill 1343 ” An Act Concerning Compassionate Care For Victims of Sexual Assault”, which is a threat to the religious freedom of Catholic hospitals will not be heard on Tuesday March 6th.

A public hearing will be held Tuesday, March 6 at 9:00 a.m. on one of the most outrageous pro-abortion attacks on religious liberty ever attempted in Connecticut.
