Only days after Franciscan University in Steubenville, Ohio, announced that it was terminating its student health insurance program, officials at Ave Maria University in Ave Maria, Florida, are voicing moral and financial concerns about their own student health program in light of ObamaCare's stringent guidelines. President Obama’s landmark healthcare overhaul has spurred a controversy not just for its contraception mandate, but also for the swelling economic costs accompanying its implementation.
Is homosexuality really biologically induced? And, if it were, what would this mean for its morality?
Franciscan University, a Catholic school in Steubensville, Ohio, announced Tuesday it will be terminating its student health insurance program, thanks to ObamaCare’s contraception mandate and new costs stemming from other provisions of the healthcare law. The university has so far refrained from offering contraceptive products and services with its student health program, and said it refuses to participate in a plan that “requires us to violate the consistent teachings of the Catholic Church on the sacredness of human life.”
It's not that the Left is "redefining" marriage — it's that conservatives must redefine the debate. The question in this debate should never be one of rights. It should be one of definitions.

The Catholic bishop of Davenport, Iowa, has decided to allow a homosexual group to present a hefty scholarship to a homosexual student at Prince of Peace Catholic high school.
After first refusing to permit the Eychaner Foundation to present the scholarship at Price of Peace High, Bishop Martin Amos reached an agreement with the group. Amos and the foundation jointly approved a script that will be read at an awards ceremony where Keaton Fuller will receive a $40,000 scholarship.
Our social engineers preach fairness but practice favoritism. Case in point: Thirteen-year-old Keeling Pilaro, of Suffolk County, New York, is being denied the right to compete in sports based solely on sex.
When two white newspaper reporters for the Virginian-Pilot were driving through Norfolk, and were set upon and beaten by a mob of young blacks — beaten so badly that they had to take a week off from work — that might seem to have been news that should have been reported, at least by their own newspaper. But it wasn't.
That Barack Obama has "evolved" into a President promoting "marriage equality," meaning the "right" to a legally recognized same-sex marriage, was the "history-making event" of the past week. Less historic, perhaps, but no less significant is the fact that less than four years ago, Senator Barack Obama, then the Democratic Party's candidate for President, was asked by Pastor Rick Warren at the Saddleback Civil Forum, "At what point does a baby get human rights, in your view?"
Police in Winston-Salem North Carolina put the cuffs on a woman who refused to leave a government office after officials told the woman, who is a lesbian, that the state would not issue her a license to marry another woman because homosexual marriage is against the law.
A federal judge has suggested that a school being sued by the ACLU over a Ten Commandments display simply delete the commandments referring to God.
