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...

Is Calling a Person a Socialist just Name Calling? Is it Christian to ‘Spread the Wealth’?

A friend of mine made a comment today that I thought hit the nail on the head.  In response to Obama’s statement recently, that [paraphrase], “My opponents have called me every name in the book, and now they are calling me a Socialist.  They recently found out that as a kindergartener I shared my toys, and as a child I tore apart my peanut butter sandwiches and gave them to my friend, and they call me a redistributioner.  MY Bible says that we are supposed to look after others.  I am my brother’s keeper.  I am my sister’s keeper.”

Heroes is continuing to try to string along the religious viewer by employing Christian verbiage such as ‘image of God’ and ‘God’s will.’  Tonight we had something that passes as a good juxtaposition between the Christian worldview and the secular worldview though ironically the roles were reversed…  Nathan Petrelli has ‘got religion’ and is now seeking transcendental meaning for his life.  So far, so good.  A Nathan Petrelli in the future attempts to reason with his brother, Peter, that we’ve all got good in us since we’re made in the image of God- as such, we can center extraordinary power … continue reading...

A Jesus for the Atheists: A Panzy?

One of the things that really irks me is when a person can’t be pleased no matter what you give them.  I am reminded of the scene in Monty Python’s movie “The Life of Bryan” where a leper is healed and complains about it because it took away his livelihood of begging.  Bryan replies “There’s just no pleasing some people!” and the Leper says, “That’s just what Jesus said!”

If you can’t please someone no matter what you give them, for my own part I tend to stop trying to please them at all.  At the very least, when confronted … continue reading...
