Great message: The evolution of the bikini. It was interesting how they did tests that showed that men looking at these women only considered them as objects. I like how she was inspired to start her own business to send a better message.
It seems that wearing a bikini does give a woman power – the power to shut down a man’s ability to see her as a person.
Alan Chambers Apologizes to Gay Community, Exodus International to Shut Down — While Exodus is shutting down, I’m glad that there are other ministries willing to speak the truth about what God says in the Bible about homosexual behavior (still a sin) and to help people who want to battle that temptation. If you really love people you won’t grandstand on one of their sins just because it isn’t a temptation for you, but you also won’t tell them it isn’t a sin in order to maintain your popularity or because you are sitting in judgment of God.
I’m glad the Exodus ministry was willing to shut down rather than continue to communicate the opposite of what the Bible says and what they used to teach. There are many “churches” who teach the opposite of the Bible on the essentials of the faith. I wish they had the truth-in-advertising integrity that Exodus has on this topic and would shut down as well.
The question for Christians should be, “What does God say?” The God that Christians worship ensured that the original writings of the Bible turned out exactly as He and the human writers wanted them to. Jesus, as part of the Trinity, agrees. It couldn’t be more clear: Bible-believing Christians and even two out of the three types of pro-gay people* (religious or not) can see these truths:
– 100% of the verses addressing homosexual behavior describe it as sin in the clearest and strongest possible terms.
– 100% of the verses referring to God’s ideal for marriage involve one man and one woman.
– 100% of the verses referencing parenting involve moms and dads with unique roles (or at least a set of male and female parents guiding the children).
– 0% of 31,173 Bible verses refer to homosexual behavior in a positive or even benign way or even hint at the acceptability of homosexual unions of any kind.
* The three general types of pro-gay theology people: 1. “The Bible says homosexuality is wrong but it isn’t the word of God” (obviously non-Christians) 2. “The Bible says it is wrong but God changed his mind and He is only telling theological Liberals” (only about 10 things wrong with that) 3. “The Bible is the word of God but you are just misunderstanding it” (Uh, no, not really.)
This is worth sharing over and over: ‘What happens to women who are denied abortions?’ 95% live happily ever after –
The New York Times Magazine will run a storythis Sunday with the ominous title “What Happens to Women Who Are Denied Abortions?” Written by Joshua Lang, a student in the UC Berkeley-UCSF Joint Medical Program, the story attempts to answer the question using the “Turnaway Study,” a study of some 200 women who sought abortions and were turned away, mostly due to being too far along to legally perform the procedure.
The study was performed by a group of pro-abortion researchers looking to catalog the negative effects of giving birth to an unplanned baby. Instead, they found that the overwhelming majority of women who wanted abortions but couldn’t get them were happy with the outcome.Here, from the mouth of one of the study’s authors, Diana Greene Foster, is the answer to the title question: “About 5 percent of the women, after they have had the baby, still wish they hadn’t. And the rest of them adjust.”
And they can give the babies up for adoption rather than kill them. This is the best the author could do to offer a balance for the pro-abortion side:
Lang celebrates the story of a 38-year-old woman , J., who, determined to abort her surprise baby, suffered through one botched abortion and drove to three more clinics in three western states before finally finding someone to successfully perform the late-term procedure. By that time, she was more than 23 weeks pregnant.
After the abortion, Lang wrote, “J. got a job operating heavy machinery at a manufacturing plant for $15 an hour. She had been applying for the past six months. If she had had the baby, she said, she wouldn’t have been able to take the job.”
Here’s a softball for you: Chelsea Clinton Laments: My Grandmother Did Not Have Access to Planned Parenthood. [Insert punchline here.]
Black Pro-Life Candidate Stands Behind Planned Parenthood-KKK Comparison — We need more of this — not just his points, but his backbone.
Republican Lt. Governor candidate E.W. Jackson of Virginia told a radio talk show host today that he stands behind the comparison he made of the Planned Parenthood abortion business and the KKK, saying it targets blacks.
The African-American candidate upset liberals in May when he made the comparison, pointing out how the Planned Parenthood abortion business targets blacks by playing its abortion clinics in majority minority areas.
“The main similarity, which I will continue to propound is that the moral dilemma that both pose is very similar,” Jackson told conservative talk radio host Bryan Fischer, according to Buzzfeed. “The justification for slavery is in a sense the same as the justification for unfettered abortion, which is, the victim is not a real person, he’s not a human being and therefore has no rights that we are bound to respect.”
Of course, it made him the target of the usual, bigoted, attacks that the left lobs at every minority GOP member. African Americans who dare to suggest that blacks are being exploited by the DNC face a firestorm of vitriol and hate. Guillory’s case was no different. So, he decided to release a video explaining his decision to jump ship.
The great thing about this clip is that not only does it do an excellent job of making Guillory’s case to the black community; it’s also an excellent (if brief) primer on the virtues of Conservatism.
People often ask us what they can do to try and change the GOP’s image among minorities. Sharing this clip with anyone willing to watch would be a good first step. Let’s make sure it gets out there.
Here’s Senator Elbert Guillory.
A Radical Imam’s Infiltration of Philadelphia – and how the useful idiots in some churches aid and abet people him him.
These relationships have led to many Christian and Jewish organizations becoming political allies of groups linked to the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood. They join their campaigns and church leaders endorse their causes. There are church events about “Islamophobia” that attack these groups’ critics as bigots. In another case, an interfaith event was used to teach Christians that U.S. involvement in oppression is to blame for terrorism. On foreign policy, the Islamists’ non-Muslim allies rail against Israel and protest Israel’s alliance with the U.S.
This platform helps increase these groups’ political influence to the point where they are courted by the White House to build support for their policy agenda and offer advice. Other non-Islamist Muslim groups are left out in the cold.
This is what the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood envisioned when it instructed followers to “possess a mastery of the art of ‘coalitions’, the art of ‘absorption’ and the principles of ‘cooperation.’”
Obamacare causing local governments to eliminate jobs and cut back on worker hours — Even governments are getting hit. Will people wake up to the horror that is Obamacare?
Obama to Veto Bill That Would Prevent Dismembering Babies Old Enough to Feel Pain — Of course he will. But at least that will make a little news and wake a few people up to the evils of the pro-abortionists.
Marine Le Pen to Be Arrested for Comparing French Situation to Nazi Occupation — This is creepy. You’d think that someone would wake up and realize what an awful and evil precedent this is.
Careful — this one could cause irony overload:
