More weekly roundup

Great video on Proposition 8 in California and why it matters.  If oxymoronic “same sex marriage” is legal then lots more 5 yr. olds will be coming home with books designed to portray these relationships as normal and morally neutral.  This is a hugely important issue.  Those pushing this on your kids are disturbed.

UPDATE: Here’s another example of what you’ll get lots more of if Prop 8 fails: School holds surprise ‘Gay’ Day for kindergartners

Abortion changes you – a good website for those needing hope and healing after an abortion

“If Americans can watch this video and still support Barack Obama, then America is…beyond all hope.” – Jason ‘Molotov’ Mitchell.

He just lies and lies – Obama knew the “kill him” rumors were false before he mentioned them on the debate, and the media gives him a pass on his easily identifiable lies about the Born Alive Infant Protection Act.

Mary worship still alive in Catholicism – and it still isn’t biblical.

Richard Dawkins – still evolving? 

This week’s debate, however, was different because from the off Dawkins moved it onto safer territory– and at the very beginning made a most startling admission. He said:

“A serious case could be made for a deistic God.”

Palin breaks with McCain on gay marriage amendment – when I first saw the title as an Internet news headline, I thought, “Wow, she is against it?  How disappointing!  But she is still strongly pro-life and that is a more important issue.”  Then I read the article and found that she is for a Constitutional Amendment (McCain is not), which I think is a great idea.  I like her even more now.  For years we were told that a Constitional Amendment was unnecessary, but it won’t be long until states are forced to recognize the oxymoronic same-sex marriages from places like Massachussetts and California.

Snopes.com – good for debunking email chains, bad for discerning political truths

Did you see how the media and the Democrats are up in arms over the scandals of Mark Foley’s replacement, the truly hypocritical Democrat who cheated on his wife and is accused of other ethics violations?  Yeah, me neither.  Foley’s problems came out just before the 2006 election and became a major issue.  Not so this time.

  1. And when are proclaiming Christians going to realize that mariolotry is not biblical?

    Seriously, I wish I had the guts to post that whole article on my blog. Unfortunately, I have a couple of regular readers who are Catholic – one is my employer and the other has been constantly e-mailing me links and articles on why I should “come home to Rome”. It might cause more trouble in my personal life than it’s worth.

    Thanks for posting it, though – if nothing else, it confirms to me that I’m neither crazy nor a “heretic”, as the Council of Trent maintains.

  2. Praying to Mary – or anyone besides God, for that matter – is bad on many levels. I know the standard responses (“You would ask others to pray for you, wouldn’t you?”) but that ignores that the Bible never even hints that the deceased can hear what billions of people say 24×7 in every language.

    The Catholic Church does some good things, but if you peel back the layers you find that most of the things that drove the Reformation are still there. Interestingly, there are some “bad” Catholic churches (I mean that in the ironic sense) that teach doctrine that is more sound than what Rome tells them to.

    I have a lot of Catholics as friends and family who I think are authentic believers, so I don’t go around poking them with a sharp stick. But there are some serious problems with Roman doctrine that deserve illumination.

    Marie, you can always hang out here when you need to vent about it. We won’t tell your boss!
