How to spot a cultural stronghold

1. Pick a hot button topic: Abortion, gay rights, gun control. 2. Make a position on it concerning funding, backing, etc. 3. Watch for vitriolic responses. CAUTION: If the vitriolic response seems to come too easily in your own case… you may need to check inside as well.  

A Pro-Life Ethic Revisited

I want to return to my theme of a pro-life ethic. By this I don’t an ethic only anchored in abortion or right to life. It’s an ethic I want to build for ALL of life. But I return to it because of the horrifying case of Kermit Gosnell. He was convicted of killing three…

The Gosnell Debacle

While the media has been incredibly late to the story, at least the New York Times broke the headline just now that Kermit Gosnell has been found guilty of first degree murder. He is the abortion doctor accused of killing babies after they have been taken from the womb. How “pro-abortion” people have kept silent…

Abortion, Gun Rights, and Zealousness

This article has as its title that abortion rights “has become” the NRA of the left. I think it’s been that way for a very long time. The issue with Kermit Gosnell is despicable and the silence from any part of any Christian community other than “pro lifers” has been appalling. We have a rabid…

The Ugliness That Gets “Lightly” Reported

Finally, after FIVE WEEKS of trial, the grisly story of an abortion doctor performing late term abortions¬†and murders makes it to the main stream media. And they don’t hold back any details. This is not light reading, folks. But it MUST be read. We can talk of the violence in our schools, in Boston, in…

Roe

Today is the 40th anniversary of the Roe v. Wade decision. A decision that came on the end of over a decade of intense upheaval in our nation as we battled over civil rights, the Vietnam War, and crooked politicians. It has been an ongoing symbol of division that in many ways was a capstone…

Bowing to the Beast

Since the Susan G Komen Foundation bowed to the beast of our culture, which is represented in this case by Planned Parenthood, all is well once again in our world. Here is what we learn: do not poke the bear. But poke we must. Christianity Today takes it on here. Some pointed words: In all…

Abortion

I work hard to stay away from what may seem to be “political” statements on my blog. Facebook is different. Yet, the whole blow up this week with Planned Parenthood and the Susan G. Komen Foundation has so crushed my spirit, I am going to take that risk. I repent for not remembering Pro-Life Sunday…

Roe v. Wade

To my shame I did not mention the passing of the date that commemorates Roe vs. Wade. In fact, we rarely mention it at all anymore. This article from ten years ago¬†highlights we may have been bored of this for quite some time. Getting past the issue of “unwanted pregnancies,” or “endangering the life of…
