The Real Jesus

In this world, if Jesus came back today he'd most likely be a gay Anglican bishop in a committed relationship driving around in an environmentally-friendly car with an "Arms Are For Hugging" sticker on the way to an interfaith dialogue with a Wiccan and a couple of Wahhabi imams.
 Instead of Jesus the wimp, Mel gives us Jesus the Redeemer. He died for our sins – ie, the "violent end" is the critical bit, not just an unfortunate misunderstanding cruelly cutting short a promising career in gentle teaching. The followers of Wimp Jesus seem to believe He died to license our sins – Jesus loves us for who we are so whatever's your bag is cool with Him.

Happy Easter!

The woman who murdered her kids ............

A must-read article by Matt Walsh.

I wondered why so few news networks are covering this story. My husband said "well it's neither right or wrong, it doesn't get anyone arguing, it is just plain gross".

While those are all true, I think Matt has hit the nail on the head. The arguments for abortion all apply to what this woman did to her born-alive infants. And that story is just too horrific for networks to cover. It is all too close to abortion for anyone to be comfortable with reporting on it.

Double standard in Canada


Michael Coren made it plain that he disagrees with the methods of both Peter LaBarbera and Bill Whatcott, but he defends their right to "free speech".

Then he shows a clip of a feminist who rants and uses profanities to make her speech, but the police stand by and do nothing.

Double standard?  you betcha. Lefties and liberals get to say whatever they please, because it is politically correct. Right wing conservatives and traditionalists get arrested for stating their beliefs in public, and they do so without the vulgar language too. 

Remember that Ann Coulter was not allowed to speak at the University of Montreal last year, because the provost decided beforehand that her speech was "hate speech" and would incite violence.

Canada, land of the free

Peter LaBarbera, an American pro-family activist, was arrested in Saskatchewan after speaking at a pro-life conference on the campus of the University of Regina. It seems that he was arrested for simply stating that he supported Bill Whatcott, a known pro-life and anti-homosexual activist, who has been arrested on numerous occasions. Whatcott was arrested for displaying an anti-abortion sign and refusing to leave the campus. He has been acquitted previously for this same activity.

The two were led away in handcuffs and later released with a court date set in late May.

Congratulations Canada for showing that you are a defender of freedom and free speech. The tolerance police are jumping to the dictates of the gay lobby, who claim hate speech at every turn.

The Rise of Same-Sex Marriage Dissidents

Just giving the nod to a great article by Mollie Hemingway.

Long, but definitely worth the read.

In every other respect we as humans act as individual organisms except when it comes to intercourse between men and women — then we work together as one flesh. Coordination toward that end — even when procreation is not achieved — makes the unity here. This is what marriage law was about. Not two friends building a house together. Or two people doing other sexual activities together. It was about the sexual union of men and women and a refusal to lie about what that union and that union alone produces: the propagation of humanity. This is the only way to make sense of marriage laws throughout all time and human history. Believing in this truth is not something that is wrong, and should be a firing offense. It’s not something that’s wrong, but should be protected speech. It’s actually something that’s right. It’s right regardless of how many people say otherwise. If you doubt the truth of this reality, consider your own existence, which we know is due to one man and one woman getting together. Consider the significance of what this means for all of humanity, that we all share this.
 Perhaps there should have been a bit of a burden of proof on those who wanted to change the institution — something beyond crying “Bigot!” in a crowded theater. Perhaps advocates of the change should have explained at some point, I don’t know, what singles out marriage as unique from other relationships under this new definition. What is marriage? That’s a good question to answer, particularly if you want to radically alter the one limiting factor that is present throughout all history.
 It’s in this sense that Eich’s most important political work was not making a paltry $1,000 donation in defense of natural marriage laws. It was in refusing to recant.
 Whether Eich and other dissidents will crack our thick, hardened crust remains to be seen. Perhaps there will need to be dozens, hundreds, thousands more dissidents losing their livelihoods, facing court cases, and dealing with social media rage mobs. But all of a sudden, the crust doesn’t seem nearly as impenetrable as it did last week.

Live birth abortion saves her own son's life

One evening a young girl was having a very difficult time.  I was there with the doctor.  I knew even though the doctor wrote this patient was 15 weeks, she was close to 30 weeks.  This happened quite a bit, but no one ever said anything.
When she delivered this tiny baby (it looked full term to me) she was actually alive and crying.  The doctor said to me, “Put it in the room and close the door.  Do not enter til the morning shift.”  I immediately took the crying baby and wrapped it up and laid it in a room.  I then immediately started calling hospitals around (against the doctor’s wishes) to find someone that would take it.  None around would take it cause they said it was not viable.  I spent many hours trying.  I just wanted to leave this place, but I knew I could not walk out and leave other patients without a charge nurse.  Til this day I hear this crying infant in my head.
This is the testimony of Marleen Golstein who worked in the abortion clinic of a hospital 30 years ago.
Her experience saved the life of her own son years later.
After a few years I got pregnant and went into labor at 20 weeks.  The doctors wanted me to terminate immediately due to my health. They stated that this baby would not be normal and I should try again.  I refused and was in the hospital, then was at home on complete bedrest.  I was not allowed to be alone..  I finally spiked a very high fever and was rushed into the hospital.  I was quite early still.. He was suppose to be born in November, I had him in July. -  a 2 pound 10 ounce little boy.  This was 30 years ago.  I was told that he was quite small and it would be touch and go to see what would happen. They also told me, “Do not expect too much. “  He was in the ISU for preemies for sometime.  He fought all the way and was perfectly normal.  Today my son is a healthy young man.  He is working on his 2nd Masters (MBA) and has a full time job.  He is aware that he is lucky to be alive, cause if I did not have the experience I did early on, he would not be here today.
 We need more testimonies of women like this to convince people of the tragedy of abortion. With more stories, there will be less "closing of doors" to shut out the babies' crying.

More Reaction to Signs in Halifax

The Signs for Life campaign got national coverage last night on SunNews TV.  Reporter Kris Sims spoke with Stephanie Potter of Signs for Life here in Halifax. When she tried to get the pro-choice side, no one at South House Women's Centre would speak with her. In fact, one woman came downstairs to tell the volunteer at the desk "that's Sun News, don't speak to them".

Kind of odd that they wouldn't want the opportunity to get their voice heard. But perhaps they can't face the kind of questions that Kris would ask, one of which being where do they get their funding?  Since South House is part of Dalhousie University, this would mean that every student gives a percentage of their student dues to pay for this service, and because it is primarily rolled out by the university, it is ultimately our taxes that are paying for this centre.

This could raise some questions for lots of people. If you don't support "reproductive choice for all genders" as the mandate of South House states, then perhaps you don't want your tax dollars going to support their ads either.

Sims will be following up on this question and it will be interesting to see what she finds out.
