The Time Is Now: A McCain/Palin Ad Blitz For The Last Week
It’s the last week before voters go to the polls and choose America’s 44th President. I have observed with trepidation as the McCain Campaign has pulled its punches on major issues to settle on not-effective-enough character attacks with minor and pathetically weak (actually – Bush-like) attempts to sell policy on the major issues on voters’ minds.I have sought in the past few weeks to convince | Read More »
What Is Happening To Our Country?
Recently I posted “Abortion a Matter of Life and Death” and I had someone who responded to me via email the following:”People who are pro-choice (including me) don’t consider embryos to be “innocent lives.” Before viability I consider it to be a tissue in the mother’s body, hence one she can choose to remove if she wishes.Obviously you disagree, but from that perspective abortion is | Read More »
The Silent Scream
“Before I formed you in the womb, I knew you, and before you were born I consecrated you.” Jeremiah 1:5As of the time that I am writing this, here are two statistics that i would like to share with you:The number of babies surgically aborted in the U.S. since Roe v Wade in 1973 is 50,491,239The number of babies surgically aborted in the world since | Read More »
Is there a pro-life party?
I will not vote in this election, despite donating money and time to John McCain’s campaign over the course of the past year and a half, as reflection on our poltiical institutions has rendered me utterly disallusioned that the elevation of either major candidate to the presidency will remedy our nation’s ghastly abortion laws.
Abortion a Matter of Life or Death
Today, my wife and I volunteered to stand with others in front of an abortion clinic and not only show our support for Life but to also pray for those entering the clinic. This was our first experience as we have been very moved by the videos that I have shared with you recently.We hadn’t been there five minutes and a lady in her forties | Read More »
An Ad All Evangelical Christians MUST SEE before voting
Cornell Staffer/Dean Oppress Student’s Free Speech
More on Our Failed System of EducationStudents that belong to a pro-life campus group called Cornell Coalition for Life (CCFL) spent weeks and hundreds of dollars organizing a pro-life display to be featured on the Cornell University Engineering Campus in Ithaca, New York. This was no guerilla campaign, either, because the CCFL applied for and received permission for its display. Yet, scarcely an hour had | Read More »
McCain/Palin Ad Campaign Themes For The Final Stretch
The Economy & Taxes: In our system of Government, the Congress controls the purse. Despite the attacks of 9/11, despite Enron and the accounting scandals, the economy enjoyed 41 consecutive months of solid growth and nearly ten million new jobs from 2003 to early 2007. Then the Democrats took over Congress …Jim Johnson and Franklin Raines were the CEOs of Fannie Mae, the architects of | Read More »
As the presidential campaign rolls to a conclusion, one of the issues that has traditionally divided America is abortion. Catholic Bishops are entreating their flocks to carefully consider the pro-life, pro-choice position of ALL candidates, whether president or down-ticket. Catholics are not alone in this concern, as most traditional, Christian denominations have taken a firm pro-life stance. At least, at the presidential limit, the choice | Read More »
The “Stupid Party”, John McCain and the Last Two Weeks
We’re heading into the final two weeks and let’s be honest, right now Barack Obama is in the driver’s seat. $150 million dollars raised in September – if I’m not mistaken, practically matching dollar for dollar everything that has been raised by the Republican National Committee over the entire cycle. Colin Powell – who still has massive amounts of credibility with the great ignorant mass | Read More »
First Degree Murder is defined as a death resulting from a premeditated act. How does abortion not fit this description? If someone were to attack and kill a pregnant woman, they could concurrently be charged with the death of the unborn child as well. Why is it any different for a woman to knowingly and purposely end the life of her unborn child? As a | Read More »
From My Pastor
Below is the body of a recent letter from my Pastor. This year we have the privilege of shaping our government through the exercise of our right to vote. We respect the separation of church and state. Both have their rightful autonomy as they pursue their distinct functions. The mission of the Church is the salvation of souls and the Kingdom of God. The mission | Read More »
Why I cannot support the Democratic Party
There is a verse in the bible that describes the last days of earth. It says that the people made that which was evil good and good evil. It describes much of what is going on in the society and in this political race today. The rabid left Hollywood Democrats of which Barak Obama has aligned himself have declared that it is evil to keep | Read More »
Good Christians! Where Are You?
I have written various pieces (q.v.) about the few bishops of the Catholic Church who stood up to Pelosi and Biden last month about abortion, which brought back the debate about excommunicating leftist Catholics (oxymoron alert!) who support all sorts of issues inimical to Catholic/Christian teachings, or at least denying them Communion at Mass, a sort of half-way step toward excommunication.One archbishop, Raymond Burke of | Read More »
Top Ten Reasons not to vote for Obama
Pro-Abortion. According to Michael Gershon of the Washington Post, Obama’s record on abortion is extreme. He opposed the ban on partial-birth abortion — a practice a fellow Democrat, the late Daniel Patrick Moynihan, once called “too close to infanticide.” Obama strongly criticized the Supreme Court decision upholding the partial-birth ban. In the Illinois state Senate, he opposed a bill similar to the Born-Alive Infants Protection | Read More »
