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

NJ Senate Silences Abortion Critic

Sunday, November 21, 2010 11:40 PM Comments (18)

The New Jersey State Senate silenced a woman, Darlene Dunn of Burlington, who attempted to testify against Planned Parenthood. They called her testimony irrelevant because the bill only had to do with giving millions to…Planned Parenthood.

Hear the outrageous audio here:

Remember last month when the NJ Senate failed to override Governor Chris Christie’s VETO to fund Planned Parenthood? Well, since then, as you can imagine, the abortion giant hasn’t been idle. They immediately instigated the legislators they have in their back pocket to reallocate funds from elsewhere in the budget towards Planned Parenthood.

Dunn, who tried to tell about how badly she was treated during her abortion at...READ MORE

Early Abortion Better than Late Abortions?

Tuesday, November 16, 2010 1:44 PM Comments (14)

Last month, Princeton’s University Center for Human Values sponsored a discussion on the abortion debate. Austin Ruse wrote a scathing summary of the conference over at That Catholic Thing but I’m focused here on one point made by William Saletan of Slate Magazine who summed up a number of points he believed pro-lifers should learn from the conference.

While such as predictably liberal solutions like embracing contraception and more government programs subsidizing single mothers were paramount, one of the “lessons” Saletan thought pro-lifers should learn boggled my mind and made clear why there is such a disconnect between pro-lifers and pro-choicers. Saletan wrote that pro-lifers’ push...READ MORE

Nintendo DS on the Communion Line

Thursday, November 11, 2010 2:08 AM Comments (35)

I traveled yesterday with my five children to attend my niece’s confirmation. It was a beautiful event that was so well attended my kids and I had to park in a nearby neighborhood.

But there’s a reason I’m telling you the story. Look, I know it can be difficult to have kids in church. Believe me I know. I’ve had kids knocking their chins into the pews and crying, I’ve had kids vomiting and then crying that they vomited, I’ve had kids accidentally tearing the missal and crying because they thought they’d be in trouble. But I couldn’t believe what I saw yesterday at the confirmation Mass.

Mind you, the church was packed so my children and I were standing and couldn’t see a whole lot but in...READ MORE

Remain Calm Pro-Aborts. All is Well.

Monday, November 08, 2010 12:24 AM Comments (4)

Sure dozens of pro-choicers got booted from Congress but rest assured it had nothing to do with abortion. Did you hear me? It had NOTHING to do with abortion.

At least that’s what Eleanor Smeal, the former President of NOW and the current President of the Feminist Majority Foundation, is saying. In a statement published in Ms. Magazine, Smeal acknowledged that while pro-choice candidates got beat badly she wants everyone to know that it had nothing to do with abortion.

Smeal channeled her inner Kevin Bacon by telling her pro-abort compatriots that all is well and that they should all remain calm.

She writes:

With the 60 plus vote Republican win in the House (four seats are still...READ MORE

Parenting According to Monster Movies

Sunday, October 31, 2010 11:21 PM Comments (8)

In honor of Halloween I’m promulgating my long held theory on parenting informed by monster movies. When I was young and single I was King Kong. The King of all Monsters. Nobody messed with Kong. Nobody. Until…I fell in love. And then down goes Kong.

I’m sure you can relate. First comes love, then comes marriage, then comes the baby in the baby carriage. I’m sure this path happened similarly for many of you. Let’s walk along the Monster Movie timeline of parenting.

Birth of baby. You are The Fly.

You are an unsuspecting victim who dabbled with powers far beyond your comprehension and changes have come upon you unbidden. You’re not yourself anymore. You don’t know what you are. But it’s...READ MORE

Is "The Pill" a Right? For Kids?

Thursday, October 28, 2010 6:33 PM Comments (8)

Abortion giant Planned Parenthood is suing the state of Montana to force them to provide “The Pill” to children free of charge. Did you get that? FOR CHILDREN.

Planned Parenthood’s affidavit, according to KRTV reads:

The State of Montana, through it Healthy Montana Kids (“HMK”)program, provides primary and preventive health care services, including prescription drug coverage, to uninsured children through age 18 with family incomes that are too low to purchase private insurance, but too high to qualify for the Medicaid program.

However, Montana has denied comprehensive services to young women enrolled in
HMK because the program excludes coverage for prescription contraceptives

The state...READ MORE

The Most Anti-Catholic Political Ad You'll Ever See

Tuesday, October 26, 2010 1:03 AM Comments (198)

A Democrat Party supporting independent non profit group has sent out perhaps THE most anti-Catholic political advertisement I’ve ever seen. Sometimes there’s a little subtlety to anti-Catholic political rhetoric but not this time. This is in your face anti-Catholicism. A postcard was sent out to voters with a photo shopped picture of a Catholic priest wearing a campaign button saying: “Ignore the Poor.”

As you can see the pic takes up nearly the entire length of the postcard. It’s anti-Catholicism is not one point of many. It’s the point.

According to its website “The Minnesota DFL supports and works to enact the ideals and principles of the Democratic Party and strives to sustain the...READ MORE
