Happy Meals, Sex, Violence and Condoms

Tuesday, December 21, 2010 2:42 AM Comments (9)

The New York Times and their cohorts in kookiness have their pom poms out for a new lawsuit against a fast food giant for advertising happy meals. Why? Because parents feel bad about saying no to their children. Seriously.

It’s standard marketing: pitch your product to the most easily persuadable. Or as Roy Bergold, a former McDonald’s head of advertising, argued once: “Go after kids.” McDonald’s has done just that with the Happy Meal, a choice of burgers, nuggets, fries and other specialties with a must-have toy.

…The Happy Meal is up for some well-deserved scrutiny. Last week a mom from Sacramento filed a class-action suit supported by the center to make McDonald’s stop using toys as bait...READ MORE

Postnatal Abortions Are All the Rage

Tuesday, December 14, 2010 2:35 PM Comments (17)

The culture war seems to be operating on an unsuspected new front. While many pro-lifers have been focused on mothers not killing babies in the womb, a staggering new scientific study indicates that incidences of parents killing their newborn babies is five times higher than previously believed.

It’s all the rage.

Come on, you can’t be surprised, can you? You didn’t think a little thing like birth would stop people from killing their babies did you? Seriously, why should the much heralded “choice” end just because the baby is lying on a table rather than in the womb?

Sydney Morning Herald reports:

A team of paediatricians examined the court records of known infant homicides in three...READ MORE

Great! At Home Gender Selection

Sunday, December 12, 2010 11:56 PM Comments (16)

A woman my wife is friendly with just announced she was pregnant and that even though she was just a few weeks into her pregnancy she was going to learn the gender of the baby in the 7th week.

My wife said she didn’t think that information was available until much later but then this woman told her about a fairly new product, an at home gender detector kit, that can work just seven weeks into a pregnancy. When my wife told me about this I’ve got to tell you my heart sank. It’s a sad world where I find this to be bad news.

Look, if this were a world where mothers were simply dying to know whether to buy pink blankets or blue or footballs or dolls I’d be happy for this information but...READ MORE

Threats Against Pro-Lifers Escalate?

Tuesday, December 07, 2010 12:51 AM Comments (8)

It seems that pro-aborts aren’t happy just killing babies anymore. Now they’re threatening people outside the womb too. Actually, it was always this way. Let’s face it, you didn’t think a cavalier attitude towards life stopped at an incidental thing called birth, did you?

It’s been well publicized that the home of pro-life leaders Joseph and Ann Scheidler was recently attacked by people throwing bricks through their front window with nasty messages tied to them like “We are crazy feminist bi***es who will destroy your sexist ideas.”

But also this week, another incident at one of the most infamous abortion clinics in America occurred, according to Pro-Life Corner:

The Rockford abortion mill...READ MORE

Football Official Flags End Zone Prayer

Thursday, December 02, 2010 12:28 AM Comments (15)

A Washington state high school football player was flagged for kneeling and pointing to heaven after scoring a touchdown.

Reportedly, the line judge said the running back was attempting to bring attention to himself. But it seems to me that he was not doing that at all. In fact, he was doing the opposite of that. Running back Ronnie Hastie “I do that to give glory to my Heavenly Father, Jesus. He gives me the strength. He’s the one who gives me these abilities in the first place.”

Is a momentary kneel and pointing up really an excessive celebration? Or is there something else going on here?

I’ve seen all sorts and manner of touchdown celebrations, this one, to me, seems about the...READ MORE

Life in the Palm of Your Hand

Tuesday, November 30, 2010 12:52 AM Comments (6)

Handheld ultrasound machines smaller than a newborn and viewable on your Smart Phone may have a spectacular impact on the abortion debate.

Technology Review reports:

Two years ago, computer engineers at Washington University in St. Louis created a prototype that took ultrasound imaging to a new level of mobility and connectivity—they connected an ultrasound probe to a smart phone. Now a startup awaiting clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration hopes to begin selling the device next year.

Obviously, this amazing technology at a fraction of the cost of a typical ultrasound has all sorts of beneficial applications for the healthcare industry. And people much smarter than I will...READ MORE

I'm Tired of the War on Christmas But…

Friday, November 26, 2010 12:25 AM Comments (28)

I’m tired of the so called “war on Christmas.” Honestly. I don’t even like hearing about it. It’s Thanksgiving and I’m already tired of hearing about it. The whole thing at times just seems so silly to me.

But here’s the thing -the part that seems silly to me is that all these retailers want Christmas shoppers business but they don’t want to say “Christmas” or mention the birth of Jesus at all. And when I think about that I get my dander up. Just a little.

I can’t imagine there’s too many people out there who get offended by the word “Christmas” in stores so what’s the problem? But some stores have taken to calling everything “holiday” or some other generic and supposedly unoffensive...READ MORE
