Good news: 61 abortion workers have quit after 40 Days for Life campaigns: pray for them

Obama’s America: Million Dollar Lottery Winner Still Collecting Food Stamps — the title says it all, though it isn’t just Obama, it is Liberalism in general.  With a straight face she rationalizes why she should still get food stamps.

Wise tips for children in worship.

Does Homosexual Behavior in Animals Mean it’s Natural for Humans? — Of course not, but that tired and transparently bad argument still gets a lot of mileage.  Do you really want to base human morality on what is natural in animals?  Male dogs may try to mate with multiple female dogs, “underaged dogs” (i.e., the equivalent of pedophilia), male dogs, your leg, your coffee table and more, but that hardly seems to be a good proxy for what to teach children as being normative.  And as Glenn noted in the comments, the “it’s good enough for me if the animals do it!” philosophy wouldn’t work so well if people started killing those who get too close to their nests or started eating their young.

Genetic evidence: another reason to doubt Mormonism — One of the many falsehoods in that religion.

Jim Winkler thinks nuclear weapons are super-bad, but gee, since we have them then it is OK for Iran to have them as well.  In a completely unrelated note, the UMC continues to shrink.

Kirk Cameron Responds to Criticism after Calling Homosexuality ‘Unnatural’ in Piers Morgan CNN Interview — Good for him!  Liberal interviewers love to put Christians on the spot.  Christians should just turn it around and ask what the Bible says.

A sad story about a woman who insisted on “selective reduction” (i.e., killing) of two of her triplets.  If this couple stays married it will be a minor miracle.  Abortion is so transparently wrong it is easy to argue against it in purely logical terms, but it is illuminating to read real stories about it as well to capture how awful it is.

Roxanne on Way to go, Liberalism!, addressing the amount of guys expecting sex on the first date:

Try getting a woman of the ’70s to believe this.  As I keep saying, those babes got to date men who were raised differently, who were excited, not entitled, when women slept with them.  Then they raised a bunch of men who think that all normal, healthy adults have sex, and now we’re to the point at which the Third Date Rule is looking a little antiquated.

Way to go, ladies. Way to go. [Golf claps] Now that near-total strangers, who could have incurable STDs, wives, girlfriends, hang-ups, bad BO, or corpses in the back yard, demand that you be alone with them, let them penetrate your body, and potentially impregnate you, let me know how that whole sexual revolution thing has worked out for you.  Seems like it’s worked out better for the men that the revolution was supposed to liberate you from.

How Herman Cain should have answered the abortion questions

I believe that Herman Cain is authentically pro-life and that he would appoint judges who would interpret the Constitution properly.  But he tried to get too political in answering questions about abortion from Piers Morgan.

Please see How I wish the abortion-for-rape debate would go for a simple and effective way to navigate through the rape and incest exception questions.  This works whether you are being interviewed by a “gotcha” journalist or just having a conversation with a friend.

Pro-lifers need to quit apologizing for their views and start being more consistent.  This is not that complicated.  The unborn are unique, living human beings from conception.  That is a scientific fact.  They shouldn’t be killed because they are unwanted or as punishment for a crime someone else committed.
