Christians blaming Christians for the Modern Situation

I just saw two posts on Worldnetdaily.com blaming the Christian church itself for the interesting predicament it finds itself in today in America.  I submit them for your reading pleasure and have just a few comments of my own below.

Article one- The Church’s desertion in a time of war.

Article two- Christians, We are to blame.

I certainly agree with much of their analysis, having said similar things for awhile now.  For example, I think it is clear that our attempt to reverse Roe vs. Wade relied far too much on the political process.  That does … continue reading...

Human Rights Without God?

I have been having a discussion with a Christia friend that started with his critique of my Birth Pangs fantasy/action adventure book series.  We started out talking about human rights in general but more recently we have focused on the question of abortion.  The gist of our debate is that I contend that there are ‘inalienable’ ‘rights’ and he doesn’t think so.  Both of us agree (I think) that apart from a theistic outlook, the question of ‘rights’ is nonsensical.  I wish to expand on that aspect due to its relevance to this blog.

That humans have intrinsic rights … continue reading...

What should Christians do about Barack Obama’s Stance on Abortion

Answer:  They should inform themselves and then absolutely vote against him.

I am writing expressly to Christians here so bear this in mind.

In my email box I have a letter from a Christian pastor saying that he is voting pro-life,  which means he is voting for Obama, on the grounds that protecting the environment is protecting everyone’s life.   McCain, of course, is on the global warming band wagon, so on its face the comment seems unnerving.  In light of what abortion is and the scale of which it occurs in our country, though, complaining about the environment while the … continue reading...

NBC Heroes, Original Sin, and the Image of God

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...

Interview question on the writing of Fidelis- a post apocalyptic setting for moral exploration

I was handed a bunch of interview questions a while back and we actually had an audio interview but that interview is now lost in the hills of Argentina (I kid you not).  I have been answering them one by one on my blog at www.birthpangs.com but this one (and a couple to come) I thought would be relevant here.  You can read the other four questions and answers at the Birth Pangs site.  Here, reprinted, is question five and my answer:

Why pick a post-nuclear war setting to explore these themes:  first, the theme of human virtue and fortitude, … continue reading...

You have a moral obligation to abort your Down Syndrome Baby, your Cerebral Palsy Baby, your Spina Bifida Baby, your Cystic Fibrosis Baby

Didn’t you know that? It is a moral obligation. That is what this embryology professor is reported to have said in this news article here. Here is a quote:

“In my opinion, the moral thing for older mothers to do is to have amniocentesis, as soon during pregnancy as is safe for the fetus, test whether placental cells have a third chromosome #21, and abort the fetus if it does. The brain is the last organ to become functional.”

The article continues with some pretty interesting points. The professor objects that he is just trying to start discussion. One … continue reading...
