New Study Records Islamization Process in Ancient Christian Lands

Casey Chalk
 

I have a friend, a husband and father of three, a Catholic who lives in Karachi, Pakistan. Since 2005, he has been harrassed, threatened, and physically assaulted by Muslim extremists. While I was working on my graduate degree in teaching in 2007, they demanded entry to his home, in which they brandished a gun and […]

Fr. George Rutler on Being a Priest-Writer: An Interview

K. V. Turley

Recently, Crisis caught up with Fr. Rutler for an interview on his life as a priest-writer to mark the publication of his latest collection of writings. […]
