    By Scott St. Clair | The Save Jersey Blog Pope Francis is on record saying you shouldn’t make fun of anyone’s faith, which puts him on the same side as the Kouachi brothers, at least in principle.    In case you missed it, the Kouachi’s are the two Muslims who slaughtered the Charlie Hebdo cartoonists […]


  • The Pope is Wrong This Time

    By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog There’s a lot to like about Pope Francis, Save Jerseyans. His pastoral style. His charitable nature.

  • Francis: Assisted Suicide a “false sense of compassion”

  • Remembering “Black Easter”

    By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog Many Americans probably recall the broad strokes of Abraham Lincoln’s 1865 assassination, Save Jerseyans, but few know that it happened, eerily, on Good Friday (which fell on April 14th that year). It’s remembered as Black Easter:
