You may have heard that Pope Francis gave an in-flight interview this morning, covering everything from shotgun weddings to how much he would love to go China to the questionable Christianity of a certain Donald J. Trump. But everyone’s freaking out about two sentences, claiming that the Pope has upended longstanding Church teaching on contraception during his […]

This week in Catholic news: Doritos, #ashtag, Mexico, Beards (2/13)

1. The Super Bowl had two ads about babies, instantly putting some pro-choice organizations up in arms. We took a closer look at the story behind the Doritos loving baby who made an, um, emergency exit.

#WeirdQuestionstoaskGod

Dorito commercial _CNA

The story behind that Doritos Super Bowl ad

This week in Catholic news: Outrage over new CDC announcement hilariously unites women across political spectrums:   It was probably hard to miss at least some of the news about the CDC’s latest recommendation, which is essentially that all women of childbearing age who have a snowball’s chance in Arizona of getting pregnant should refrain from alcohol […]

The Super Bowl is pro-life!

Kind of, anyway…. Turns out, the city that wins the Big Game usually sees a boom in births 9 months later. There’s even an NFL commercial featuring a song performed by Super Bowl babies from years past (Disclaimer: If the word ‘canoodle’ shocks you, skip the video). Of course, the Super Bowl is usually about […]
