The May issue of Catholic World Report is out!
The May issue of Catholic World Report is now on newsstands and here's what you'll find inside:
- "My Baby!": A crisis-pregnancy center in Massachusetts reports that ultrasound examinations can play an enormous role in turning women against abortion. A carefully documented study of that influence could also have important implications for pro-life legislative strategy. Phil Lawler has the details.
- Who's In Charge?: In an exclusive interview with CWR, Bishop Fabian Bruskewitz questions the authority of the National Review Board, and the wisdom of its approach to the sex-abuse crisis.
- Policy, Not Law: Rather than enforcing existing statutes, the Bush White House has gone further—caving in to pressure from the gay-rights lobby. Kenneth Whitehead outlines a worrisome development.
- The Friendship-Deficit Syndrome: The key to evangelization in 21st-century America may be the rediscovery of authentic male friendship, writes Father C. John McCloskey III.
- Dark Clouds At Eastertide: The threat of terrorism became an immediate concern throughout Europe after the March 11 bombings in Madrid. Warnings from US intelligence officials redoubled worries at the Vatican during Holy Week. And terrorism was on the Pope's mind as he delivered the traditional Urbi et Orbi blessing on Easter Sunday.
- The Unpopular Populist: After months of steadily escalating conflict with the Catholic hierarchy in Venezuela, Alejandro Bermudez finds that President Hugo Chavez is more isolated than ever.
- Missing The Boat On The Birth Dearth: Singapore's impending population implosion is cause for alarm, Michael S. Rose observes. But proposed solutions studiously neglect the underlying causes—contraception, abortion, and sterilization.
- As The Campaign Begins…: Archbishop Charles Chaput explains "How to Tell a Duck from a Fox." Peggy Noonan asks whether another Democratic candidate has caught "The JFK Disease." And Joel Belz of World magazine explains the challenge of providing "Faithful Reporting" in partisan circumstances.
- And Phil Lawler's Editorial, And Peter Wept: Our first and best model of Church leadership is based on abject humility and an utter contempt for human respect.
