Kermit Gosnell has been convicted. He will spend the rest of his days languishing in prison. Never again will he brutally murder children, or exploit, injure, and kill their mothers. But this story isn’t over. Far from it. We barely had time to feel relief that Gosnell was off the streets, before we learned about another, and possibly even worse, “House of Horrors” – this time in Texas. It won’t come as a surprise that despite horrifying testimony and photographic evidence about how Texas abortionist Douglas Karpen is allegedly delivering living babies, and then killing them in ways that are almost impossible to imagine, the mainstream media has completely ignored this new House of Horrors – just as they ignored Gosnell.

Attorney General Eric Holder said Wednesday he did not know whether there has been even one prosecution under the Born Alive Infant Protection Act. “Have you ever enforced this law even one time?” Rep.

The Vatican confirmed today that O’Brien will leave Scotland ‘for spiritual renewal’. The cardinal stepped down as leader of the Scottish Catholic Church at the end of February after admitting that his sexual conduct ‘had fallen beneath the standards’ expected of him during his almost 50-year career.

In the midst of the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) scandal, individuals and groups, alike, are continuing to come forward with ever-startling allegations. On Wednesday, Dr. Anne Hendershott, a devout Catholic and a noted sociologist, professor and author, exclusively told TheBlaze that she believes she may have been one of the IRS’s targets.
