Posted this at the WI-LFL blog: Someone pointed me to an op-ed in the NY Times by a ‘dragon mom.’ Her son, born with Tay-Sachs, is not expected to live beyond three years old. And yet, despite this- or is it because of this?- the joy she has with him is immense and incalculable. Our […]

This is the sort of story that really gets under my skin. A Florida couple won a lawsuit against her doctors, asserting that they failed to discover that their child would be born disabled (no arms and one leg). The woman testified that she would have definitely aborted the child if they had that information.
“They went from the heights of joyous expectations to the depths of despair,” their attorney Robert Bergin told the jury during closing arguments Wednesday.

I am pleased to announce that the ChristianPost has asked me to be a blogger for them. It is an honor. The section I post in is called Christianity in Today’s America. Here is the description:
An ongoing discussion on the current state of the Church in America, how it got there, and where it is going. What are a Christian’s responsibilities in an increasingly unChristian America? This blog will tackle tough issues for the Church in uncompromising terms while continuing to meet the challenges posed by a widening body of unbelievers.

As I was skimming the web this evening I came across this site reviewing Hitchen’s “God is not Great.” I didn’t spend much time on the blog so I don’t know the gent’s background.Â I’m going to comment on a few things he said as a springboard since I have heard it any number of […]

Well, I suppose at some point this cycle of responses between Herr Professor and myself is going to have to end.Â I thought it kinda funny to basically be in a conversation with the gent, but of course in the abstract, where I pretend that my comments are to some ethereal group of readers of […]
