Big Abortion Isn't Having the Recession They Hoped For

07/27/2010 Comments (10)

Awww! The poor things at Big Abortion seemed so thrilled the economy had taken a turn for the worse. According to the media, abortion clinics seemed thrilled to predict while many industries suffered from bleak economic indicator s, the abortion industry was riding high predicting that the recession would be a boom time for Big Abortion. But, let’s just say they’re not having the great recession they were hoping for.

In New Jersey, Governor Chris Christie reacted to the recession by rightly saying that the state is “broke” and can’t afford to fund abortion clinics like Planned Parenthood as it has in the past.

Legislative Democrats restored budget cuts of $7.5...READ MORE

Ten Reasons to See New Film "Sweet Baby Jesus."

07/21/2010 Comments (9)

Let me see if I can entice you to go see a film that starts shooting in September called “Sweet Baby Jesus.” Here’s a quick little summary to whet your appetite from MTV :

The story is set in the ‘70s, in the town of Bethlehem… Maryland. One day, a new couple arrives in town: Joseph and his pregnant hippie wife Mary. Naturally, the town comes to think that the Second Coming of the savior is imminent.

Now if that wasn’t enough, here’s ten great reasons that’ll be sure to get you excited enough to drop ten dollars in Hollywood’s lap and some popcorn in your own:

It’s a comedy!!!

It’s from the director who brought you “Bill and Ted’s Bogus Journey.”

Sharon Stone is starring as Mary’s...READ MORE

Is the Pope In Danger?

07/19/2010 Comments (93)

I’ve been saying recently that Pope Benedict XVI is heading into enemy territory in “Post-Christian” England. Sadly, I may be more right than I imagined.

A member of British Parliament says he fears violence at an open air mass with Pope Benedict XVI after an Islamic publication called Muslims to attend the Mass to convert Catholics and “tell the Pope in no uncertain terms what Muslims think of his evil slanders against the last Prophet of God and his message.”

I think it’s the “in no uncertain terms” that’s making some a little nervous. Oh, the same publication also called the Pope “evil.”

The Islamic Standard writes:

“A change of venue gives Birmingham Muslims a chance to tell the Pope...READ MORE

If Science Discovered the "Catholic Gene?"

07/13/2010 Comments (18)

Would Catholics be better off in America today if scientists discovered a “Catholic gene?” Sadly, I think we would. Sadly, I think our culture promotes and celebrates victimhood and punishes morality. Sadly, I think the discovery of a papal mitre in our double helix could be a legal benefit to Catholics.

Rather than just a life-style choice that’s so un-21st century, Catholics could warrant legal protection similar to the laws that prohibit racial or gender discrimination. In the past if a Catholic pharmacist refused to sell an abortifacient contraceptive the Catholic pharmacist could lose their job.  But if Catholicism was discovered to be a genetic defect some of the secular new age...READ MORE

Is Divorce Contagious?

07/08/2010 Comments (16)

A friend of mine worried to me many years ago that his wife was hanging out with a woman who’d recently been divorced. He said he believed that their friendship was having a negative effect on his marriage. At the time I didn’t see how that could be but it seems I was wrong. My friend’s wife left him within that year.

That’s purely anecdotal I know but now there are scientists now saying divorce leads to more divorce.

Scientific research coming out of Brown University studied the marriages of 12,000 people and discovered “divorce clusters” and have concluded that if a friend of yours divorces the chances of you getting a divorce increase by 75 percent.

The researchers even concluded...READ MORE

The 4th of July Had a Happy Ending

07/05/2010 Comments (3)

Yesterday was a good day. The Archbold’s did the 4th of July up right. All five children wore red, white and blue to Church. We sang “God Bless America” at the top of our lungs. We played outside while listening to country music on the radio and I barbecued hot dogs and burgers on the grill and didn’t even burn them (a lot.)

We ate inside because there were so many bugs flying around that with a concerted effort they could’ve carried away the two year old girl by her pigtails. As the sun set at the end of the day my wife and I debated taking the children back outside to watch the fireworks. That means I wanted us all to go out to the local high school to watch the fireworks and my wife...READ MORE

The Pope's PR Man

06/29/2010 Comments (24)

I’ve worked in public relations so I know some of the rules. You know who breaks all of them? Pope Benedict XVI. I’ve got to imagine that Pope Benedict’s PR man would be pretty frustrated with him about now if he had one.

I’d imagine his message to the Pope would be something like this:

“Benny baby how’s it goin’? Fantabulous. Great great great. But I gotta’ tell you I’m getting a little concerned that you’re veering a wee bit from my recommended plan. You did get the plan, right? I gave it to one of the cardinals to forward to you. I’ll have to get his name from my assistant but he was a little old Italian cardinal with a red hat. So you can probably find him based on that.

Anyway,...READ MORE

Is Handing Out the Gospel "Disorderly Conduct?"

06/24/2010 Comments (26)

This story should alarm Christians all over America.

It all started a few years ago with pro-life free bubble zones where pro-lifers weren’t allowed to discuss abortion with people going into an abortion clinic. But that was only the start. Now heavily Muslim Dearborn Michigan apparently has “Jesus free” zones.

Powerline reports:

Police in the heavily Arab Detroit suburb of Dearborn say they arrested four Christian missionaries for disorderly conduct at an Arab cultural festival… The “disorderly conduct” consisted of handing out copies of the Gospel of John outside the festival.

The problem with the disorderly conduct charge is that the protestors videotaped the kerfuffle and it shows...READ MORE
