Instead of taking responsibility for the culture of death surrounding abortion, advocates continue to justify their gruesome agenda by blaming their long list of casualties on the same individuals they criticize for embracing state protocols whose very purpose is to save lives.
Let me humbly admit that I may have had a Starbucks latte in my hand on the morning my staff told me the unfortunate news. Starbucks doesn't want my money anymore.
I was recently confronted with what some believe is a shift in public opinion on the issue of traditional marriage.
We've learned that if you cleverly craft a bill's title to include women, puppies, or kids, convincing members to vote against it will be as hard as getting a straight answer on Benghazi. And that's exactly what happened Thursday. The Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) passed and anyone who wasn't paying attention is probably overjoyed that it sounds like Congress finally defended women.
Most of my Catholic and Anglican friends are busy observing Lent these days. We Evangelicals don't usually do too much other than anticipate the arrival of Passion Week, Good Friday, and of course, Easter Sunday. Fasting for Lent isn't something we usually observe, because for one thing, we Evangelicals insist on either going all in or not participating at all. I mean, seriously, you want us to choose only one thing? Sorry. We can't seem to grasp the idea of giving up just coffee when the other option is food of all kinds and all liquids except for water. We're the "all-or-nothing" bunch.
The all-out war against God's model for marriage and sexuality is at its apex. Just as we submit our Supreme Court "friend-of-the-court" briefs in support of marriage today, homosexual activists are putting enormous pressure on the Boy Scouts of America (BSA) to finally embrace homosexuality by allowing homosexual leaders within their ranks.351 comments
We heard so much about the so-called "war on women" during the last presidential election, with both parties pointing the finger at the other. However, there is a real opportunity for Congress to protect American women before they leave for the Christmas break, and yet, the House and Senate are too busy haggling over the details to get it done.7 comments
So here's what a conservative pro-life woman has to say on this matter: you can go this route, but you will lose our vote forever.
It's difficult to have a smart and sensitive conversation about the vicious reality of rape and its consequences and not an oversimplified conversation of sound bites, or one that's been watered down so as not to offend. Recently, the subject of rape, and conception following rape, has been the center of politically charged debates sparking hostile discussion between national figures and political pundits. Of course, this has offered pro-abortion advocates a foothold by which to advance their life-ending agenda.36 comments
Kids can't have a super-sized soda pop in The Empire State, but they can have the morning-after pill? Wow. Things really are "different in New York." As a woman and a mom, the idea of young girls getting any unauthorized medication at school is a concern. Ibuprofen isn't even allowed without explicit parental approval. Who are the geniuses that decided this is a good idea?312 comments
As believers, we must help our children, relatives, coworkers, and neighbors see God's miracles amidst the chaos. Take Fox Denver's report that the gunman's largest, most deadly gun jammed. How many more lives were saved due to this mishap?8 comments
