Greg Gutfeld has coined a new term, “Patriotic Terrorist”. I’m not sure why he would post it on such a site as the Huffington Post, especially with the hate-filled comments that follow it.
The pro-abortion crowd often brings up abortion as the only alternative to unplanned pregnancies. Not to be too blunt, but as my grandma once said, “that is no accident.” Chuck Colson, in one of his daily Breakpoint Commentaries, talked about a woman who decided against aborting the child of an unplanned pregnancy. Through sharing her… Continue reading Another Alternative To Abortion
I was reading an article entitled Exit Interviews at Christianity Today’s website, and I have to admit I was depressed. I know we all behave in an unchristian due to often unknown or unrecognized attitudes. I don’t feel that it is fair that so much pressure is put onto the “first” person of a particular… Continue reading Jesus was [insert skin color, race, ethnicity…here]

However, with some recent clarification, it apparently is possible to do embryonic stem cell research without killing the embryo. I would… Continue reading An end to the stem cell debate?
A survey sponsored by MTV provides some very interesting tidbits regarding the endangered psyche of a technology-savy generation. Even though I found the comment on religion interesting, it just seemed to be tossed in there, and didn’t add to the main thrust of the story. On top of that, an article in Christianity Today discusses… Continue reading Technology, Humanity, Control (Maybe the Luddites are right)
An article in Christianity Today discusses Wendell Berry’s view of Christianity and the environment.
When I first heard of the Michael J. Fox political commercial, I immediately wrote an entry about it, however, I then learned about all the controversy about Rush Limbaugh et al (amazingly I hadn’t heard about that), and decided to mark my post “private” so that I would not add flames to a horribly partisan… Continue reading Oil and Water Mix Better Than Politics and Science
