Dressing to Sexually Arouse Men or Not

Editorial by John-Henry Westen   September 30, 2008 (LifeSiteNews.com) – Sex sells, and advertising agencies know this better than anyone else. Their research into the subject has identified the areas of the female body which when exposed will lead men to sexual arousal.  There is a science to all this which is on display most obviously in television commercials.     A disciple of Freud, J.C. Flugel, tried to suggest that those “erogenous zones,” as he called them, fluctuated.  However, the typical body parts when exposed still cause sexual arousal.    From somewhere between the elbow and the shoulder, from just below […]

By Kathleen Gilbert LONG BEACH, CA, September 29, 2008 (LifeSiteNews.com) – Coadjutor Bishop Jaime Soto of Sacramento shocked his unsuspecting audience at the National Association of Catholic Diocesan Lesbian and Gay Ministries conference with a keynote speech that gently but firmly condemned the homosexual lifestyle as sinful, and celebrated extra-marital chastity, according to the California Catholic Daily. “Sexual relations between people of the same sex can be alluring for homosexuals,” Bishop Soto told the conference, “but it deviates from the true meaning of the act and distracts them from the true nature of love to which God has called us all.

Can “Fireproof” Save Marriage at the Ballot Box in November?

Commentary by Patrick Novecosky September 29, 2008 (LifeSiteNews.com) – If I’ve learned anything from watching the past few elections cycles, it’s that politics follows culture. Candidates tend to take their cues from what they see and hear around them.

Those who spearheaded the boycott that provoked the apology had been led to believe that the issue was satisfactorily put to rest and that […]
