It has been noted that Dr. Tiller was gunned down in his church. It is a wonder that no one has proposed the obvious: more gun control is necessary. Allow me to be the first to call for it publicly.
The first thing we need to do is make it illegal to have guns in churches in Kansas.
Then we need to make it into a crime to single out abortionists for murder. We should tack it onto the Hate Crimes legislation coming down the pike. There is nothing worse than hate inspired murder.
After that, I think we should take the National Organization of Women’s statement today and run with it. They said: “Bringing the killers to justice is not enough – the Justice Department and the Department of Homeland Security must root out and prosecute as domestic terrorists and violent racketeers the criminal enterprise that has organized and funded criminal acts for decades.”
Yes, let’s root them out.

In 1954 the US passed tax exemption legislation that prohibited tax exempt entities to engage in certain kinds of political activities.
From a speech by Adolf Hitler, 1935. National-Socialist Party Conference:
But under no condition whatsoever will the National Socialist State permit religious denominations to engage in political activities, whether these activities be a continuance of the old tradition or something started afresh.

Some Christians I’ve read have been disappointed by the fact that Obama didn’t do anything for the National Day of Prayer. I don’t know why. This is who Obama is. He has given us no reason to think he is otherwise. I’m glad that he didn’t continue the illusion in some minds (more accurately, self-delusion)…

This is one of those times when you wonder if the mainstream media is worth even a lick. I learned on WND yesterday that for the 2010 census they’ll be getting the GPS coordinates for every residence in America. This process has apparently begun. It is difficult to conceive of legitimate uses for such a database and very easy to conceive of abusive ones.
Worrisome point one: The Obama Administration has moved to take direct oversight in the census this time around.
Worrisome point two: The census will make no distinction between legal and illegal immigrants. Funding and districting could be skewed.
Worrisome point three: Acorn has been contracted out to help with the 2010 census.

This story is a perfect illustration of scientism and its dangers to our society. The idea that something is intrinsically morally correct by virtue of being ‘scientific’ is a non sequitur, certainly, but nonetheless coming to be quite common. Science gave us the atom bomb, too, but it is self-evident that the decision to use it should be political. But can the decision to use it ever be scientific? (The movie IRobot comes to mind, here).
Is there any way to get from an observation of reality or increase in technology to “And you ought…” ?
Of course not. In short, just because the morning after pill is effective and it is only ‘unlikely’ to have the result that conservatives fear, it doesn’t follow that it should be used at all, or that it should be made available to people who are not yet legal adults. Cars are effective, too, but that doesn’t mean parents shouldn’t be in the loop as to whether or not their underage children should be allowed to drive them.
