About two years ago my wife and I were informed at the twenty week ultrasound that our daughter very likely had a birth defect and it was very likely spina bifida.  This was devastating.  Another ultrasound was scheduled for that afternoon to get confirmation and in the hour or so we… continue reading...

Principles for proper and moral legislation: in America, abandoned

I am a libertarian-constitutionalist.  By that I basically mean that the government should mind its business at almost every level but when it does become involved it should follow the letter of the law- and the highest law should provide for significant checks and balances to make sure that the government doesn’t overstep its bounds.

I’m pretty sure that the founders of this country had a similar view.  They wouldn’t recognize the bloated thing we have today.  One can guess what they’d say or do.  (I have some guesses).  Let us just assume that no one even tries anymore to … continue reading...

Dear Republicans: You are Fired

I just love hearing all the tough talk from Republicans right now going after Obama’s stimulus bill and acting all ‘conservative.’  Where was this tough talk 4 months ago?  You’re fighting a 1 trillion measure that isn’t going to do jack for the economy under Obama but you laid down for 1 trillion in handouts that didn’t do jack for the economy when it was Bush.

Honestly, I don’t believe your tough words.  You don’t really believe them yourself.  You read the political winds and calculate what you think will get the most people to like you, and theoretically, the … continue reading...

Do your part for the economy: have fewer kids, abort if necessary

There are days when I wish I didn’t keep abreast of the news.  I learned today that Nancy Pelosi and the Dems are trying to pass funding for contraception in the stimulus bill that they are trying to get through Congress.  Now, in theory this money would only go towards ‘family planning,’ ie, contraceptions, not abortions.  However, we have to remember that for many people, abortion is a contraception.  The clearest example of this is the belief that just because you wipe out a human embryo in the first couple of days after conception, you haven’t actually aborted the child.… continue reading...

Lincoln on Slavery Applied to Abortion: Irony in Electing a Pro-Choice Black President

Hat tip to Eric Redmond for posting this article on Facebook from John Piper’s website.  Here is what was quoted from Lincoln:

You say A. is white, and B. is black. It is color, then; the lighter, having the right to enslave the darker? Take care. By this rule, you are to be slave to the first man you meet, with a fairer skin than your own.

You do not mean color exactly? You mean the whites are intellectually the superiors of the blacks, and, therefore have the right to enslave them? Take care again. By this rule, you

Gay Democrat gives Bush his proper due

I stumbled upon this essay by a man who apparently is gay and a Democrat giving tribute to President Bush.  That was enough to intrigue me.  While obviously I disagree on a number of points I found the article as welcome proof that one can find decent people across the spectrum.  If only there were more of them we could have a conversation worth having.

Naturally, too, while agreeing with the author that Bush ‘failed’ in certain areas, he and I would disagree on which. But we do have strong agreement about where Bush succeeded.

Without further ado, here is … continue reading...

A call to pray for Obama, like Nathan to David, Jonah to Nineveh, John the Baptist to Herod

Below I have pasted an article that I was going to submit to WorldNetDaily only to discover that Farah posted nearly identical sentiments.   My article is derived from a longer treatment that I directed towards a popular online Christian blogger (whom I usually agree with- the InternetMonk) who insinuated that if you don’t pray for Obama you are a racist- but he doesn’t qualify what we are to pray for.  Indeed, the insinuation was that if you don’t pray for Obama’s success then you aren’t praying for him at all, and you are, definitely, a racist.

In short, if … continue reading...

This is for all the Christians who voted for Obama

If terrorists and tyrants want Obama as president that is cause for concern to me.  If I am a Christian who is operating on the belief that Obama reflects my values, the fact that secular humanists are thrilled is a warning sign.  With no further comment, here you go:

I’m just saying.… continue reading...

Abortion and Slavery: Obama as the Anti-Lincoln

Right there on the Drudge Report was a picture of Obama posturing in front of the Lincoln Memorial.  It doesn’t take much to see the relevance.  Lincoln was instrumental in liberating black people from slavery in this country.  150 years later, a black person is president.  The spin doctors aren’t content to leave it at that.  The effort is on to try to relate Obama to Lincoln’s style, intellect, etc.  But Obama is no Lincoln.

The prevailing argument in the hundred years leading up to the Civil War was this simple question:  is a black person a human person, entitled … continue reading...

Solving the Abortion Debate Through Radical Love

This is not the first time I’ve said as much, but I maintain that though legislative efforts are important, the abortion debate is to be won on grounds other than that.   I don’t think I am the only one to make the point.  It has been noted that even on a best case scenario, the overturning of Roe vs. Wade throws the issues to the states.  Finally, even if every state banned abortions there would still be women seeking them.  At the bottom, persuading women to keep their children and enabling them to do so is utterly necessary.

As pro-lifers … continue reading...

Rand’s Atlas Shrugged as Template for Today’s Liberal Lunacy

This morning’s post is inspired by this Wall Street Journal article.   Essentially, Moore argues that the government is currently engaged in exactly the kind of behavior witnessed in the book.

It is uncouth these days to say anything even slightly critical about the president-elect, excuse me, the Messiah.  No one wants to hear it.  The mass opinion seems to be that we should all at least swallow our partisan tongues for a little while and “Wish Obama a Successful Presidency.”

We are not permitted to ask exactly what would constitute a ‘success’ in Obama’s eyes.  For I certainly do … continue reading...

Hey! People! Even Blagojevich is Innocent Until Proven Guilty!

The continued trouncing of the rule of law in this country is really starting to get on my nerves.  I suppose everyone has heard about the allegations that Governor Blagojevich tried to sell Obama’s vacant senate seat.  Lisa Madigan, Democrat Attorney General, has asked the Illinois state supreme court to strip the governor from his position.

I have no love for Blagojevich.  Frankly, I have no love for any Illinois politician.  My five years in Illinois was like being front and center at a circus.  There is also no question in my mind that Blagojevich is guilty as sin- and … continue reading...
