Why shouldn’t she abort?

Earlier in the week I was listening to a podcast discussion about the controversy Richard Dawkins inspired when asked what to do when pregnant with a Down Syndrome baby.  His response was to abort and start over.  The woman on the pro-abortion side defended the sentiment even though she said she … [Read more...]

It’s not my fault you’re an Atheist

I wish I had a nickel for every time I interacted with an Atheist who who seems to be desperate to latch on to the idea that atheism is best defined as a lack of belief .  It seems that they will relentlessly argue for that loose definition to no end.  Moreover, these same Atheists will rarely if … [Read more...]

Are your moral objections principled?

I was listening to a morning radio show which included a segment called 'Six on Sex'.  Ordinarily, a contestant (usually a young girl) is asked six very personal questions about her sex life while her father is listens to his daughter's exploits.  If he can make it through all six questions and … [Read more...]

Perpetuating the myth of domestic violence

black eye

  The above graphic has been circulating the internet for at least a couple weeks now.  It references the incident between former Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice assaulting his then fiancee in an Atlantic City casino elevator.  I think the image above only serves to show the bias most … [Read more...]

NFL to institute biased penalties for domestic violence

Know this upfront: I don't condone or make excuses for anyone committing domestic violence.  However, the NFL has, in response to Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice, instituted a zero tolerance policy of sorts for these kinds of offenses.  ESPN reports that "[t]he NFL is immediately implementing … [Read more...]

Obama’s rich vs. poor politics are dangerous

Regardless of your politics, you really should be uncomfortable with President Obama's tendency to demarcate the wealthy and the poor in America.  Demonizing or otherwise creating an 'us vs. them' mentality really isn't good for the country or the political atmosphere overall.  It can lead to some … [Read more...]

Everything is offensive when you’ve been taught to look for it

Progressivism thrives on conflict between blocs of the populace.  In fact, it can't survive without it.  Their voting blocs are victims of the others, usually due to alleged racism, misogyny, or some kind of xenophobia.  Bottom line, everything can be turned into an example of racism.  Peanut butter … [Read more...]

Navigating the news

Australian judge opines on incest citing its taboo is similar to that of homosexuality.  This isn't at all surprising.  When the LGBT activist community used a very particular kind of defense for accepting their sexual proclivities.  If you are inclined to accept their defense, you are logically … [Read more...]

The slippery slope gets slipperier: Pedophilia is natural, says academics

When opponents of legalized same sex marriage and socially normalizing homosexuality ask the question: what's next? proponents scoff at their warnings of a slippery slope into doing the same for bestiality and pedophilia.  However, the claims of the slippery slope were vindicated when psychologists … [Read more...]

Her body, her choice? Mother smokes and drinks because she’s having a boy

Josie Cunningham made news a while back for publicizing her intention to have an abortion in order to appear on reality shows in hopes of becoming famous.  Well, she decided against having that abortion, but isn't making things much better.  She had believed she was having a baby girl, but much to … [Read more...]

Independence Day

July 4th marks a day of celebration throughout America.  Fireworks, picnics, and parades are just some of the ways we all recognize the day our Nation was born.  Having noticed a difference in how people wish others a happy celebration, I'm curious as to what others think. Do you say 'Happy … [Read more...]

Planned Parenthood gives award for increase in abortions at facility

Planned Parenthood Annual Report 2012-2013

Supporters of the right to elective abortion and Planned Parenthood often tout that only 3% of their 'business' is abortion.  This number is, of course, misleading. However, of the women who get services from Planned Parenthood because they're pregnant, there's another story to be told.  A … [Read more...]

Supreme Court strikes down Mass. law enacting buffer zones at abortion clinics

Earlier this week the Supreme Court unanimously -- yes, unanimously -- ruled that a Massachusetts law prohibiting discussions with, and handing out leaflets to people entering or exiting abortion clinics within 35 feet, even if public property encroaches closer than that, as unconstitutional.  For … [Read more...]

Is gender assigned, or recognized?

First, you have to consider the source.  But I've seen this kind of attitude toward gender from hyper-liberal feminists before.  They abhor the thought that boys are boys and girls are girls.  Somehow, this notion that we can tell if someone is a boy or girl simply by looking, is offensive. (Slate) … [Read more...]

Government imposes political correctness on private business

For those of you who follow the news, the federal government has sufficiently pressured the US Patent Office to revoke the trademark for the NFL team, the Washington Redskins.  First and foremost I find it suspicious that these kinds of frivolous movements only take root in years when a certain … [Read more...]

Men, it’s your fault mothers abort…mostly

Mothers abort their children for many reasons.  In my opinion, none are good enough except to save her life.  Admittedly, the way I characterize the reasons given for abortion, it sounds harsh, cold-hearted, and even callous:  'justifications' for elective abortion are selfish.  But the true reason … [Read more...]

We can’t just move on, can we?

What is it about moving on that it's nearly universal to us all?  Whether it's leaving that job you hate, splitting from a bad relationship, or even abandoning a religious or a-religious set of convictions, people will so often stay put for too long. Some situations are obviously controlled by other … [Read more...]

Taxpayer funded sex-changes

The Department of Health and Human Services has announced that denials of sex change operations will not be automatic.  Now they'll be taken on a case by case basis.  There's no way the social and medical acceptance of how to treat transgenderism is based on anything other than public pressure from … [Read more...]

Abortion activist ashamed she’s never aborted

Actress Sarah Silverman admitted to Bill Maher that she's never had an abortion.  As it goes, this isn't that big of a deal.  However, she framed it in such a way that makes it seem as though she wishes she had. (Mediaite) -- Comedian Sarah Silverman has made women’s reproductive rights one of the … [Read more...]
