The disappearance of a sense of responsibility is the most far-reaching consequence of submission to authority.-Stanley Milgram

Wife of Pro-Life Pol Reveals Abortion and Forgiveness After Husband Threatened

A pro-life GOP State representative who has been calling for the defunding of Planned Parenthood and making at least some abortions illegal was contacted by someone who said they were going to reveal that his wife had an abortion. Presumably, they believed this would derail his efforts.

I don't think they were ready for this. His wife bravely posted her story on her husband's Facebook site:

First, I would sincerely like to thank the person who recently contacted my husband. You informed my husband that you had heard a rumor, and that you would keep digging. You promised that you would ensure that this story went public. In fact, your desire to see this story go public emboldened me to do something that I should have done years ago. After speaking it over with my husband, I felt that telling my story was best. And no matter the intentions of anybody wishing to see this story go public, this I am certain of: God meant it for good and will glorify Himself through this.

In high school, I made a poor decision to attend a party one night. I have no memory of the majority of that night, but judging by my appearance and physical condition the next morning, I knew I had been taken advantage of. Three weeks later, I found out I was pregnant. I didn’t tell my friends. I didn’t tell my parents. Truthfully, I didn’t tell anybody. I was ashamed and I was scared.

The decision that I made one week later to abort my child was the worst of my life. Rather than find comfort in the ones around me that loved me the most, I sought to take care of the situation the only way that I knew how. I should not have done it. It was my easy way out, but little did I know that I would be stricken with an unbearable guilt for the months and even years to follow.

It wasn’t until after I spoke with my parents and my then ex-boyfriend (now my husband, Lee), that I realized the full forgiveness and grace that God freely offers through His Son Jesus Christ. You see, Christ took my place on the cross and bore the weight of my sin so that I could have eternal life. And though my sins are forgiven, I never want to minimize the mistake that I made that day, because it now magnifies the love and grace of my Savior through the telling of this story.
This is what politics has become. A politiian is pro-life so his wife is fair game. That sounds pretty typical, doesn't it?

Men in Superhero Shirts

I see more and more "adult" men wearing comic book superhero shirts but less and less men acting like heroes? Think there's a correlation? You betcha'.

President Obama Poses in Front of Statue of Mass Murderer...Again

President Obama, on his trip to Vietnam, poses in front of a statue of Ho Chi Minh, a mass murderer. This guy isn't just a run of the mill mass murderer. He's responsible for millions (MILLIONS!!!) of people's deaths.



Here he is posing in front of a pic of Che Guavera, also a mass murderer. Seeing a trend?


But don't worry. They were leftist killers so it's all ok.

Sooo...Driving an Infiniti is Like Being Gay?

“Look, this isn’t easy for me, either. I’m sorry if you don’t like it, but it just feels right,” a young man says to his dour-faced father.

“We didn’t raise you this way,” the Dad says sternly.

“You must have known I was a little different,” the son whines.

“Not this different,” the father mumbles gravely.

Yup. Infiniti has modeled their car commercial to mirror a son coming out as a homosexual to his father. Did they think this was a good idea?

I mean, what's the upshot here? Driving an Infiniti is as awesome as being gay?

Baby Born Alive after Abortion, Clinic Calls 911 Still Calling Baby "Fetus"

There's an amazing and heartbreaking story at LifeNews.com about a baby born alive following a botched abortion. It's a must read (even thought it's incredibly upsetting.) But the amazing thing to me is that the clinic worker continues calling the baby a "fetus" even while on the phone with 911.

In the 911 calls, a clinic worker told the dispatcher a fetus that was removed had vital signs.

“There was a termination that was performed,” the worker said. “There is a fetus that is breathing right now, so we need someone to do services.”

The 911 operator asks if the fetus has been harmed in any way.

The worker answered no, and said the fetus needed further help other than what the clinic could provide.

“The fetus is breathing so we need care for it now,” said the caller. “We can’t provide that care except for oxygen and we’re trying to keep the fetus stable until someone arrives.”
Disgusting. I guess if you're going to believe a lie it just doesn't matter how much reality interferes.

If You're a Christian Why Don't You Give Away all Your Money and Possessions?

A cynic and atheist recently snarkily asked me "you say you're a Christian so why don't you give away all your money and possessions?" I told him that I did. I have five children.

Christian Girl Begs Forgiveness for ISIS for Killing Her

The young daughter of an Iraqi Christian family burned alive by ISIS used her final moments in her mother's arms to beg forgiveness for her killers.

Jihadists reportedly arrived at the family's home in Mosul seeking to collect a fine that the Muslims charge Christians called "Jaziya." They told the mother that the family must pay instantly or evacuate the home. The mother simply begged for a few moments as her 12 year old daughter was in the shower.

Steve Harvey's Moving Commencement Speech: "I am a Product of Prayer"

I know a few dozen Catholic schools that would have done well to listen to this television host rather than the radical nutjobs they honored.

Steve Harvey talk about the role prayer played in his life and how imagination is proof of the importance of things unseen.

I Do Not Think That Word Means What You Think It Means

This is how the media directs public perception. Drives me crazy. Not because I'm surprised they do it. I'm just surprised that people don't see it.

NBC Washington reported:

President Obama recently issued a directive to public schools that transgender students must be allowed to use the bathroom of their choice.

A controversial law in North Carolina has also brought the issue to the forefront. The law says transgender people must use public bathrooms, showers and changing rooms that correspond to the sex on their birth certificate. The Justice Department has sued North Carolina, saying the law violates civil rights laws.
You've got to love how Obama directing public schools to allow boys to use girls room doesn't get the "controversial" moniker. But somehow North Carolina saying that boys should use boys rooms and girls should use girls rooms is "controversial."

Un-be-lievable.
