The social conservative roots of libertarianism

    American Spectator calls it in http://www.spectator.org/blog/2008/11/26/defining-libertarianism-down#comment_9117 “Defining Libertarianism down”. It’s a snarky commentary on a Reason article – http://reason.com/news/show/129993.html – that curiously is declaring victory for libertarians in the midst of possibly the greatest retrenchment towards socialism and biggest expansion of Governmental power expansion since, er, the New Deal; after all, the new powers-that-be are all making 1930s analogies. The snark is well-deserved, since the | Read More »

    The Scientific Pro-Life Argument

    Many of us who are pro-Life Christians base this stance on Scripture and Church Teaching on the subject of abortion. Many pro-Life Christians are familiar with these verses and others like them: “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart;I appointed you as a prophet to the nations.” Jeremiah 1:5 My frame was not hidden | Read More »

    Blogging the Right Thing: Politically Homeless

    We continue our blog of “Do the Right Thing” because while certain people think we shouldn’t do it, others think its useful to take a more broad look at what Huckabee is saying in the book for more reasoned analysis and discussion, rather than taking a few quotes out of context. Secondly, this book is fairly popular. My brother went into Borders and they were | Read More »

    Blogging the Right Thing: Is There Something About ‘Created Equal’ You Don’t Understand?

    As my blogging of “Do the Right Thing” continues, Chapter 3, ” Is There Something About ‘Created Equal’ You Don’t Understand?” focuses on the pro-life issue. Huckabee finds his grounding for the pro-life position in the Declaration of Independence’s statement: “We hold these truths to be self-evident that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their creator with certain unalienable Rights, that | Read More »

    Barack Obama’s Gun Grabbing Attorney General

    Podcast Show Notes  The Obama transition: The Fannie Mae connection.   Obama’s new NSA advisor is a good one. Tom Daschle: HHS Secretary and lobbyist. Eric Holder: Behind the Mark Rich pardon and anti-gun. On the positive side: he has a mustache. Progressives not happy at Obama’s appointments. (Hat Tip: Reformed Chicks Babbling.) Doomed to repeat it: House GOP rejects earmark moratorium.  (Hat Tip: Hot Air.) McCotter’s | Read More »

    Pro-choice is FUN…till you have to DO it.

    From tomorrow’s Washington Post Magazine: “A Hard Choice: A young medical student tries to decide if she has what it takes to join the diminishing ranks of abortion providers.” Seems like learning to kill babies can be lots of fun: There isn’t anything nice about abortion, Lesley said, but she does not equate it with murder. “I think it’s a necessary evil, no, unpleasant service, | Read More »

    Rep. Linda Sanchez, single and pregnant

    http://voices.washingtonpost.com/reliable-source/2008/11/replindasanchezpregnantnow.html It’s actually going to be funny, listening to people who attacked Bristol Palin defend Linda Sanchez. And, vice versa, of course. They are obviously in different situations. One is a private citizen, and a kid, and had an “accident”. The other is a public official, and an adult, and the pregnancy is wanted.

    Pro-life action alert

    From Catholic Dads. Subject: Universal Declaration of Human Rights petition needs signing On December 10th*, pro-abortion groups will present petitions asking the United Nation’s General Assembly to make abortion a universally recognized human right.The Catholic Family and Human Rights Institute created an alternate petition drive that calls for government to interpret the Universal Declaration of Human Rights as protecting the unborn child from abortion. They | Read More »

    A Challenge for my African-American friends.

    I have a challenge for my African-American friends. Watch the video linked below and then tell my exactly why you continue to support, en masse, a political party that supports efforts to wipe you out. Eyeblast video I welcome all intelligent responses to my challenge.

    RINO bait “I’m pro civil union…

    Hey Rino’s I’m setting a trap for you. I’m also setting a trap for those intolerate towards civil unions. So I just need you to play along with just ONE assumption. Please just for this exercise buy my ONE assumption. THE ONE ASSUMPTION!!!!! Homosexuality is genetic for some gays and can be tested for in utero. Now assuming the above is true are pro-choice moderates | Read More »

    The gray area between “Pro-Life” and “Pro-Choice”

    Let me start with the conclusion to one of my archived diary entries: the Reagan coalition is NOT dead — but it depends on each element accepting the other. Abortion is quite understandably a lightning-rod issue. Many on RedState subscribe to the view expressed in a recent diary entry: There Is No Middle Ground. Anyone with a conscience who looked around and saw millions of | Read More »

    This should really creep you out

    I can hardly believe this isn’t a hoax. JP h/t: puffer

    Pro-choice groups, women’s groups and Palin

    Palin chose to have five kids. Palin chose to deliver a Downs baby. Palin made her choices.

    Pro choice groups: Why the silence on China?

    Pro choice used to mean pro choice. Not pro abortion, but pro choice. Pro choice should mean anti forced abortion. So, why the radio silence from the pro choice and women’s rights groups on China’s policy of forced abortions?

    Not a right wing nut, but a true Catholic

    In another member’s diary, there was a thought provoking writing on communion for pro-abortion supporters as well as taxpayer funding of abortion. My apologies to the author, but I can’t find the link. In any case, there was an article today about a South Carolina priest telling his congregation that those voting for Obama needed to seek confession and pennance for their vote before receiving | Read More »
