Roundup

Pro-life crash course — read this short piece a couple times and you’ll have the basic arguments down.

Remains of dead Chinese fetuses turn up in capsules — but are we grossed out for the right reasons?

Similarly, some of the same Christians who recoil in horror at the idea of a dead fetus being microwaved in a clinic in China show no concern for the “spare” embryos they created being left to thaw in an IVF clinic in America.

Our moral intuitions are justified—we should be disgusted by the cannibalistic customs of our pagan neighbors in the East. But we should wonder why our discernment fails us when, in the name of advancing science, curing disease, or alleviating infertility, we turn a blind eye to the Satanic practices supported by our Christian neighbors in the West.

We’re like vegetarian butchers at Moloch’s feast. We think we are somehow morally superior because we draw the line at eating the children we kill. But whether the blood is on our mouths or only on our hands, the stain of the slaughter seeps into our souls.

Great news about RINO (Republican In Name Only) Senator Dick Lugar losing in Indiana.  We don’t need people to reach across the aisle to embrace horrific ideas.  We need real conservatism and adults who will make tough spending decisions, and who can think beyond 15 minutes into the future.

Obama’s gay marriage balancing act gets awkward – It is only awkward because some of his fans don’t realize that he’ll “finally” decide to be full-blown pro-same-sex “marriage” if he is re-elected.  Obama thinks voters are idiots, and he has some good reasons to hold that view.  Fortunately the impatience of some in the pro-gay community will help force his hand and cost him some votes for people who believe his current lies. I’m glad to see Romney with a clear stance here.  One more reason to vote for him.

Some advocates told Yahoo News that Obama surrogates endorsing gay marriage is a way for the campaign to “wink” at second-term support for the policy without taking the political risk of outright embracing gay marriage in an election year. Mitt Romney has said he would pass a constitutional amendment to ban gay marriage and appoint judges who oppose gay marriage, placing himself far to the right of Obama, who helped end the military’s ban on openly gay service and abandoned the Federal Defense of Marriage Act. But despite this gulf, both candidates oppose gay marriage—an uncomfortable fact when it comes to rallying the Democratic base or fundraising from passionately pro-gay rights donors.

And it is noteworthy that 2% of the population is gay but over 15% of Obama’s big money-raisers are gay.

And then there’s the money, according to the Washington Post, one in six bundlers — the people who raise the big bucks for the Obama campaign — is gay. They are still raising money for a man who continues to twist himself into a pretzel over gay marriage, and whose White House still can’t figure out how to message it. Why? Because they believe wholeheartedly that he actually supports gay marriage, and if re-elected he will come out in full support of it and flip his position.

Paul Washer declares war on the “sinner’s prayer.”  Great points.  My view: The Bible doesn’t ever ask you to say when you were saved or when you said some prayer.  It does tell you to examine whether you are saved now, and why.  Hat tip: Touch Ya Neighbor
