New Encyclical

by Jimmy Akin

I heard about this new stem cell research yesterday on NPR, which broadcast a brief debate on the subject between Sean Tipton, president of the Coalition for the Advancement of Medical Research, and Richard Doerflinger, deputy director of Pro-Life Activities for the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops.

Writers Strike

by Jimmy Akin

in Economics

I got an e-mail from Peter Knight, creator of Big Wolf on Campus and a striking member of the Writers Guild of America (WGA), asking if I had any thoughts about the current writers strike. I do. I don’t like it. It’s likely to cause the final ten episodes of Battlestar Galactica to be held […]
