Congressman Endorses Indoctrination and Population Control

09/22/2010 Comments (11)

If I were to say to you that the government was indoctrinating our children in population control many would probably say Matt’s been taking his conspiracy theory pills again. But what would you say if a Democratic congressman actually said that he’d like to see children indoctrinated in population control.

CNS reports:

Rep. John Sarbanes (D-Md.) told CNSNews.com at a “Sustainability Education Summit” hosted by the U.S. Education Department on Tuesday that environmental education in schools can “promote the agenda” of climate change and population growth through the influence it has on children.

“Like I keep saying over and over again, if you get young people invested in those ideas early...READ MORE

A Pro-Life Victory at Nation's Most Infamous Abortion Clinic?

09/19/2010 Comments (15)

From the grotesque and offensive window displays including rubber chickens hanging from a crucifix, a nun in a coffin, and a Jesus statue making an offensive gesture, to the blasting radio attempting to drown out pro-lifers, to the clinic’s owner brandishing a chainsaw the abortion clinic in Rockford Illinois is rightly one of the most infamous clinics in the country.

Now, in what has to be one of the clearest “the world is upside down” stories, police in Rockford, Ill., threatened to arrest the drivers of an ultrasound truck outside of an abortion clinic for offering free ultrasounds.

This was especially surprising (if anything can be surprising in Rockford at this point) because Kevin...READ MORE

Ignore Your Conscience and Vote?

09/13/2010 Comments (22)

Should pro-lifers ignore social issues in this upcoming election?

Some GOP officials like Governors Mitch Daniels and Haley Barbour are urging pro-lifers and traditional marriage advocates to take a seat on the bench and hush their mouths so the Republican Party can focus on economic issues.

A smart political play? Maybe. But here’s the thing. I’m not smart, OK? I’m no great political strategist. I’m not James Carville or Karl Rove. I’m just a voter and I’m done trying to be smart. I mean it. I’m done. I’m done playing the angles and reading the polls. I’m voting my conscience. Every time. And it drives me crazy to hear people telling me to vote with my head and not my heart. It drives me...READ MORE

Make a Baby. Save the World.

Make a baby. Save Western civilization.

Europe is in big trouble. The culture is becoming increasingly secularized, Christian traditions are ignored, refuted, and mocked. Christian Europeans aren’t reproducing at anywhere near the rate of Muslim immigrants.

The most alarming this about all this is how calmly everyone seems to be about these radical changes. That’s why I found it so refreshing to hear Father Piero Gheddo issue a warning to Europe that they’re on the brink of being Islamicized.

And what can stop it, according to Father Gheddo? War? Public demonstrations? Burning Korans? Nah. The solution is rather simple - Go to Church and have more babies.

Pretty simple, huh?

Abortionists Kept Aborted Babies in Jars

09/05/2010 Comments (200)

Two abortionists in Maryland (Dr. Steven Brigham and Dr. Nicola Riley) were ordered to stop practicing abortions in Maryland after a woman was severely injured.

Subsequently, police raided the clinic searching for medical records and to their horror they discovered dozens of unborn babies stored in a freezer.

After being shocked and disgusted my mind raced back to an incident a few months ago.

This would be a strange and horrible story if it had never happened before but just a few months ago another abortionist, this one in Philadelphia, was discovered to be keeping aborted babies in jars.

The offices of Philadelphia abortionist Kermit Gosnell were raided earlier this year after a...READ MORE

Compassionate Cannibalism

08/29/2010 Comments (14)

Various media reported on an online campaign calling on people to “donate any part of their body” to a new cannibal restaurant. They also advertised for an “open-minded surgeon.”

Oooooookay?!

This is assuredly an online p.r. stunt for something or other but it got me thinking, “Why not cannibalism?” Seriously. Many of the same arguments made in the defense of things like abortion, the legalization of drugs, and homosexual marriage could be used to legalize cannibalism.

If the sole arbiter of legality is the consent of adults, why not cannibalism?

Couldn’t you imagine the libertarian argument that if a restaurant is willing to pay for body parts or is simply asking for donated body...READ MORE

Let's Hope the Pope Doesn't Act All Catholic-y

08/23/2010 Comments (25)

We knew that some English government officials were a wee bit peeved about the Pope coming to England. They’ve shown that with their emails suggesting that the Pope visit an abortion clinic or suggesting a new brand of Pope Benedict condom. We know that many Muslims aren’t happy about the visit because a Muslim publication has called for Muslims to “tell the Pope in no uncertain terms what Muslims think of his evil slanders against the last Prophet of God and his message.” What we didn’t know was that some Catholic officials in England aren’t so crazy about the Pope’s visit either. In fact, some Catholic officials are hoping that the Pope doesn’t act too Catholic-y when he visits England.

The Secularized Cross

08/19/2010 Comments (6)

I’m agreeing with a group of litigious atheists when I say the cross is a religious symbol. Yesterday, a number of crosses honoring fallen police officers in Utah were deemed illegal by a federal judge, saying they violated the Establishment clause.

While I disagree with the ruling I find myself agreeing with one major aspect of the argument by the atheists who sued to have the crosses removed. The judge overturned a previous decision by a lower judge that allowed the crosses because the crosses could conceivably be seen as generic symbols honoring the lives of the fallen officers.

Deseret News reports:

The white, roadside crosses that currently memorialize the deaths of 14 Utah Highway...READ MORE
