Weekly roundup

Soooooooo . . . just how fast are you?

Not content with the empty sound bite of her husband that abortions should be “safe, legal and rare,” now Hillary wants abortions to be “really rare.”  Sure.  That’s why she was outraged that the Supreme Court upheld the Constitutionality of the ban on partial birth abortions.

But if abortions don’t kill an innocent human being and are as safe as pro-legalized-abortion proponents claim then there is no reason to limit them. They would be a cost-effective and safe method of birth control.  

Just when you thought you knew of all the awful things Planned Parenthood does, you find out about another one.  An abortionist in one of their videos claims abortion is about “helping to save lives.”  Check.

Some atheists like to mock theists with their “Flying Spaghetti Monster” religion (i.e., a deliberately fake religion that supposedly mirrors theistic beliefs).  This article does a nice and brief analysis of its logical flaws.

Tony and Edgar both linked to posters poking fun at the Emerging church.  Unlike the Flying Spaghetti Monster thing above, these have a basis in truth.  They capture the general postmodern philosophy and attitudes – saying how humble and open-minded they are while obviously having a dogma of their own and thinking you are not only completely wrong but arrogant as well. 

Mayor of Ft. Lauderdale tackles problem of homosexuals having sex in public.  Some groups wanted him to apologize for addressing the issue, but instead he apologized for not being aware of it earlier.  Good for him!  Watch the video of his news conference.  At the end the protestors insisted that the mayor should be ashamed, as opposed to those having anonymous sex in public restrooms.  Indeed. 

Excellent overview of the threat of Islam in America

  1. Back at my old college you couldn’t go to the
    public park after dark since the park was used
    by men who sought each other out for sex- usually
    in the restrooms. The local paper even ran a
    story about it. Surprisingly enough, nothing was
    ever done about it.

    Don’t you think trying to seriously analyze a parody only serves to set you up for more parody?

    I’ll take that risk. I think we should consider what parodies have to say about us. Let’s face it, many things Christians do deserve parody and should be changed!

  3. Safe, legal, and rare. I’ve said it once and I’ll say it again: nothing that is entirely safe, entirely legal, accessible, and possibly beneficial is ever going to be rare.

    Love Dawn Eden’s work. The “save lives” doesn’t refer to physical health, but rather to some obscene notion of living your life exactly as you plan it. Well, it’s good when the pro-infanticide group shows their true colours.

  4. I like the overview of Islam. Interesting to note that Keith Ellinson who is a representative of Minneapolis and swore on the Quaran instead of the Bible when being sworn in, his district includes the bridge that just collapsed in Minnesota. Anyway, that was a good presentation on Islam and the effects it has on America.

  5. Thanks for stopping by and the kind words.

    re: the Emergent Posters. I’ve been TRYING to engage a couple of emergents this past week. They really are arrogant. I’m nowhere near as smart as they are…they told me so! (not in so many words, but, well…you know).

    Have a great weekend.

  6. Thanks for posting that video by Planned Parenthood NYC…wow…eye opening. I literally felt ill when the doctor said she, “…carried a pregnancy to term against my will and was forced to adopt the child out, and it was an incredibly painful experience for me.” Yikes. So…If I’m hearing this right, she got pregnant…against her will. Hmmm…I guess no one told her that sex makes babies. Well, it was the 1960s, so who knows. All I know is it’s all sad…very sad.

    Neil, ….. You’re right and for them to take this position they have to be relying on the ignorant masses that this subtelty will escape. If it is good and there is nothing wrong with it why coach it in limiting language. Would they say that homesexuality is okay, but we should strive to keep it to a minimum. Wow, the boys in San Franscisco would go wild with that one……… Apparently in Ft. Lauderdale too…….steve

  9. There is in issue with both hetero and homosexuals having sex in public places!I don’t think that it should be labelled as a homosexual issue.

  10. “The police department [of Ft. Lauderdale], however, tells the paper that sex in bathrooms isn’t a major problem.>

    major problem? If it is a problem at all, it is major. Let some child walk into a bathroom and have to see such is despicable!
    God help us when society has come to accept such as this.

  11. Alan,

    Please, this is a Christian blog. Take your evidence and facts elsewhere.

    Hi Sarah – thanks for stopping by. I assume you meant “evidence and facts” in the sarcastic sense, because of course evidence and facts are welcome here.

    I deleted the comment you referred to. I have no reason to believe it had merit, but that wasn’t why I deleted it. That commenter isn’t welcome for a bunch of reasons. He must have switched IP addresses.

    I agree, although I believe the latter is easier, since a man sneaking into a woman’s bathroom, or vice versa, may be a slight obstacle. Then again, people don’t have that much shame.
