Roundup

New study finds highest-ever risk of breast cancer from abortion – That should be front page news, but the radically pro-abortion media will buy it.

John MacArthur on Joel Osteen.  Yeah!

You know that these things are true because they work for you and your wife?  Sure, because you are at the top of the Ponzi scheme.

RINO Chris Christie signs bill banning gay ‘conversion therapy’– Apparently Christie is an anti-choice, anti-science zealot. Anti-choice because he thinks teens shouldn’t be able to choose to get help and anti-science because there is no evidence that they are “born that way.” And even if they were born that way, that wouldn’t make the behavior moral. Besides, who would want to change from a lifestyle that is 40+ times more likely to give you HIV or Syphilis? At least that’s what those gay-bashers at the CDC say the odds are. Here’s more on the scientific fact that they aren’t “born that way.”

What Happens When You Abolish Tipping – interesting article.

It is come this far, this fast: If you are a decent person who agrees with Jesus about what real marriage is, the government feels the need to rehabilitate you.  Hey, thanks to all the fools who bought the line that oxymoronic “same-sex marriage” wouldn’t impact us.

X3Watch is a free accountability software — Seems simple and effective.  Yes, people can try to find ways to cheat but this makes it harder.  I encourage all males (and females?) in accountability groups to use something like this.  And if you aren’t protecting and checking on your kids you need to start today.

X3watch is free accountability software program helping with online integrity. Whenever you browse the internet and access a site which may contain questionable material, the program will record the site name, time, and date the site was visited. A person of your choice (an accountability partner) will receive an email containing a list of all possible questionable sites you may have visited within the month.

9 Things You Should Know About Child Brides – This is a sad problem.  One thing was about the increased risk of HIV/AIDS in polygamous countries.  And I had never heard of “pleasure marriage” or “traveler’s marriage” in Muslim countries.  That is convenient for them.

In some Muslim countries, marriage is used as a cover for the illegal child sex tourism trade. Some Muslims groups allow temporary marriages such as Nikāḥ al-Mutʿah (“pleasure marriage”) and Nikah al-Misyar (“traveller’s marriage”) as a way to get around Islam’s prohibition against premarital sex. By making the unions temporary, Egyptian child sex tourism manages to capture much of the worst of child marriage and child prostitution. “Some girls have been married 60 times by the time they turn 18,” an Egyptian government official who works on the issue told Inter Press Service. “Most ‘marriages’ last for just a couple of days or weeks.”

Graphic ‘Face the Children’ postcard campaign is opening Canadian abortion debate – good for them!  As usual, those who object think it is worse to show the pictures than to do what is in the pictures.  Yes, they don’t want kids to see them — perhaps because their kids will ask why they aren’t doing anything about it.

For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts. -Isaiah 55:9

  1. Great collection of news items – as usual.

    The thing about a god who thinks like you – that is what ALL the liberal so-called Christians do. They don’t like that the God of the Bible thinks differently than them, so they make one of their own choosing.

  2. Re: Eliminating tipping. My initial thought is “that won’t work here” but when I read the details, I think “why not?” Each state sets it’s on minimum wage and in SC, wait staff is typically paid less than others (on the assumption they make up for it in tips). If a restaurant decided to eliminate that disparity, I’d patronize them at least once just to check out the service and food quality. Assuming it was comparable (and comparably priced) to other restaurants, I’d continue to patronize it. From the article, sounds like it would be superioir.

  3. 1) Re: child brides and “marriage prostitutes” — I think that was probably the main reason that the Mosaic Law did not allow a man to marry a woman multiple times, if she had been with another man after divorcing her husband the first time. Otherwise the town whore could “marry” fifty men fifty different times, as they traveled back and forth in their business, bringing crops to market, etc.

    2) Re: the graphics — I’d really like it if you included a URL of the image on f/b or wherever you found it, so that I can share just that picture. You have a lot of good graphics, and while frequently I share your entire post, there are times when I want to focus in on just the graphic (particularly to share to a certain group, in which the other parts of the Roundup might be off-topic), or I’m afraid people will “throw the baby out with the bathwater”, and not even look at the graphic I want to show them, because of the other stuff before.

      • I prefer to give attribution to the person who created it; in fact, I’ve heard of some people being sued for copyright infringement for downloading images and reposting them as their own (even though the person didn’t claim them as his own creation). I’m not really worried about being sued or anything, but I still would like to honor the person who created the work if possible. At least with the “Armed Mommy” thing, I could look them up on f/b and maybe find the graphic, except I’m already familiar with their page and know that they post a lot of graphics, so it will be difficult to find.

      • I’ll do it where I can. Some have built in notes, such as Liberal Logic. But many are just FB memes with no originator noted.

So, what do you think?
