I Am In Awe of Such Faith

Tuesday, February 15, 2011 1:40 AM Comments (56)

An Afghanistan Christian and father of six, is imprisoned and scheduled to die. His crime? He believes Christ is his Savior. And he is scheduled to die because of it. No defense lawyer will take his case for fear of retribution. And he has been told that if he renounces Christ things would go easier. But he doesn’t. He won’t.

Said Musa, who lost his leg from a landmine in the 1990’s and has worked since then as a medical worker for the Red Cross fitting children with prosthetics, has been in jail for eight months. According to a public letter written by him and addressed to our President and the world community, he has been brutally tortured and abused in every way possible, both by guards...READ MORE

Most Common Big Family Fracases (and Solutions!!!)

Thursday, February 10, 2011 3:31 AM Comments (40)

New parents will often ask me questions about how to raise children because I have five children, none of whom are (currently) in jail.

Asking me for parenting advice is a bad idea but I understand what it’s like to have many children and not know what you’re doing. The Bible tells us to be fruitful and multiply but after that the Bible kinda’ hangs us out to dry. Well, that’s where I step in, I guess. I decided I’d like to help other parents by offering the beginnings of a database of fracas’ they’ll eventually encounter after they’ve been fruitful.

Most Common Fracases:

“You’re in my spot!”- There’s going to be a spot on the couch that becomes THE most coveted spot by children in the...READ MORE

7 Reasons I Stink at Praying

Tuesday, February 08, 2011 2:01 AM Comments (30)

I Am…

Awesomely Humble. Sometimes, no sooner do I hit my knees when I start thinking about how wonderful I am to take time out of my day to pray. I’m like a short chubby St. Teresa of Avila, bursting with humility. And then because I’m so wonderful at being humble I start fretting about all those other bad people who are not as wonderfully humble as me and aren’t praying this very minute. I am so glad I am not them, the poor Hell-bound dears.

Lazy. Even though I know that the time I spend in prayer is a source of strength that I can draw on so that I can do well in all the other facets of my life, I tend to schedule it as catch when can. In between blogging, watching Phineas & Ferb, and...READ MORE

Shock Video: Planned Parenthood Advises Pimp

Tuesday, February 01, 2011 1:07 PM Comments (24)

Yesterday I saw a number of headlines screaming that Planned Parenthood has reported the Live Action group, which has been going undercover into abortion clinics across the country and exposing illegalities, to the Justice Department. Planned Parenthood is asking for some kind of investigation.

Because I don’t trust the media at all I figured that this was just about Planned Parenthod trying to get in front of the story, spinning it. I figured there was more to the story. And there is. A lot more. And none of it looks good for Planned Parenthood.

According to Live Action:

A Planned Parenthood manager in New Jersey coaches a man and a woman posing as sex traffickers how to to secure...READ MORE

11 Craziest Things I've Ever Heard in Church

Thursday, January 27, 2011 2:14 AM Comments (106)

1) Whispered by a father in the pew behind me to his children who were being a little noisy: “When we get to the car I’m testing all of you on what the gospel was. And if you get it wrong you’re dead.”

2) Whispered by my daughter minutes before going up for her First Communion: “Dad, I think I’m gonna’ throw up.” (She did. Our parish priest later came to our home to offer her the Eucharist but she was still sick so we waited until the next week.)

3) Said by priest who noticed that two birds had flown into the Church and were dive bombing parishioners: “Oh, I know how to get the birds out of here. I’ll baptize them and then they’ll only come back twice a year on Christmas and Easter.”

All Mass Murderers Are Not Created Equal

Monday, January 24, 2011 1:42 AM Comments (21)

In the wake of the mass murder of seven babies by a Philadelphia abortionist I have to ask where’s the Presidential press conference? Where’s the nationally televised memorial? Where are the t-shirts with the catchy slogan? Where’s the media blame game? Where’s the feature pieces in national magazines on the societal implications of the murders?

Seriously. I’m wondering why isn’t the murder of seven babies of similar national implications to the horrible murders in Tuscon?

There are currently 15,000 mentions of Jared Loughner in the news recently, according to Google. But as of Sunday night there are less than 1,400 mentions of Dr. Kermit Gosnell. That’s 10 percent. Truly, silence is the...READ MORE

Condoms Should Come With Capes

Tuesday, January 18, 2011 2:58 AM Comments (17)

To the progressive mind, there’s nothing condoms can’t do. It’s true. The belief that synthetic rubber birth control has the ability to cure any and all of humanity’s ills is a bedrock belief of the progressive movement.

Ask a progressive how to solve the biggest problems facing the world and within a minute they’ll mention condoms. Guaranteed.

World hunger? Condoms.
AIDS? Condoms.
Global warming? Condoms.
Poverty? Condoms.
The deficit? Condoms.

In fact, have you noticed that the only times progressives even give lip service to attempting to reduce abortions is when they’re pushing free condoms. They always say that the best way to reduce abortion is…MORE CONDOMS!!! Because that’s...READ MORE

Ick Factor at Memorial Rally?

Thursday, January 13, 2011 10:07 AM Comments (110)

Anyone remember solemnity anymore?  I’m not sure we do.

Watching last night’s memorial for those gunned down in Arizona I couldn’t help but feel that that the nationally televised “memorial” had little to do with the victims of last week’s tragic shooting. All the news leading up to the event was about whether President Barack Obama could deliver a stirring speech (which he did.) The news itself made the event about Obama, politicizing it before it even began.

And then the actual memorial started with a politically correct blessing from Native American Carlos Gonzalez who received a loud cheer for saying he was Mexican on his mother’s side. Yay Mexico? What’s that about? But I think it...READ MORE
