An official from the University of Alabama has delivered an apology to a pro-life student group for removing their display at a campus facility.
Carl Bacon, director of the Ferguson Center, sent an emailed apology to Bama Students for Life stating that their display could return to the center after being removed.
"Please accept my apology that your display was removed without your knowledge two days before your reserved time expired. You have two options available to you to complete your 30-day reservation," wrote Bacon. more >>
The Bible tells us "God is not the author of confusion" (1 Cor. 14: 33, NKJV), but He is the revealer of it. The United States of America is in a serious state of confusion, and it is critical that we understand how we got here so we can discover His way out.
Do you recall the 70s song by the Temptations entitled "Ball of Confusion"? Remember the lyrics? "So round 'n' round 'n' round we go/Where the world's headed, nobody knows ... Just a ball of confusion." That's us!
Romans 1 explains how a culture lands in this precarious condition. We started our drift in the late '60s, and today we've officially arrived. Here's the downward spiral outlined in this passage: Reject truth. Lose discernment. Experience moral chaos and confusion. (See Romans 1:18-32.) more >>
Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards recently tweeted out a short video featuring her suggestions of what women really need for Valentine's Day. Among a litany that included "well woman visits," "cancer screenings," and "birth control," was "safe & legal abortion." All of this, we're mockingly informed, is "really radical stuff" which, of course, is a sarcastic quip meant to stigmatize those who don't embrace the entirety of Planned Parenthood's ideology, including its disposable man ethic.
Richards' tweet comes on the heels of a sacrilegious satire from comedienne and abortion rights advocate Sarah Silverman. To commemorate the anniversary of Roe v. Wade, Silverman produced a short skit in which she and Jesus discuss the question of when life begins. Lamenting that he is "bummed" that people misuse his teachings to advocate oppression and intolerance, Silverman's fictional Jesus tells her that life begin at 40 and that fertilized eggs are not people. The skit was produced as part of the run up to a women's pride event, "V to Shining V," hosted by a group called Lady Parts Justice. Meanwhile, across the sea, our Belgian cousins just voted in favor of a law that authorizes euthanasia for children with disabilities, so long as the child is deemed to be of sound mind and receives the permission of his parents.
Signs of social depravity? You bet. It's enough to make one wonder whether human society has fallen so far down the rabbit hole that it is past the point of redemption. more >>

Planned Parenthood President and CEO Cecile Richards sent out message to her social media followers earlier this week suggesting services that women might need for Valentine's Day. On Richards' list, "What Women Need for Valentine's Day," is "safe and legal abortion."
"While it's sickening to promote the killing of preborn children on a day set aside to celebrate love, it shouldn't surprise us that on Valentine's Day, Planned Parenthood hearts abortion," said Lila Rose, president of pro-life group Live Action, in a statement shared with The Christian Post on Friday.
"Having infamously earned the title of America's largest abortion corporation, killing over 327,000 children a year, they will stoop to any low to push a vicious ideology and make a buck," Rose added. more >>
An evangelical couple and two of their seven children are suing the city of Portland, Maine, regarding its ordinance that prevents protesters from gathering within 39 feet of the local Planned Parenthood abortion clinic. The family argues in the lawsuit that the ordinance violates their constitutional rights to free speech.
Daniel and Marguerite Fitzgerald of Shapleigh filed their lawsuit in the U.S. district court Wednesday, arguing that the city's buffer zone ordinance violates their First and Fourth Amendment rights found in the U.S. Constitution. The City Council voted late last year to pass the ordinance that would create a 39-foot bubble around the Planned Parenthood clinic on Congress Street after hearing testimony that pro-life protesters were harassing clinic visitors. The Fitzgerald family argues in its lawsuit, however, that their protests have been peaceful.
"[The Fitzgeralds] are faithful Evangelicals motivated to oppose the practice of abortion because of their religious beliefs that abortion is the deliberate destruction of innocent human life," the family's attorney, Stephen Whiting, wrote in the lawsuit, according to Bangor Daily News. more >>
