Roundup

Hat tip to Matthew for this important literary analysis.  It is a real time saver, as now you don’t have to read the book.

The Shaft: How Some Companies Prey on the Poor — read about these common but legal scams.  The solution is solid education on financial basics.  Junior Achievement does an amazing job of building financial literacy.

Christian preacher arrested in UK for saying that homosexuality is a sin — coming soon to a country near you.  This is the logical conclusion of granting civil rights status to sexual preferences.  The preacher was right, of course.

Why didn’t the media cover the new CDC study on HIV transmission? — Seriously, when a preventable disease rate is 44 times higher for one particular group (gay and bisexual men) shouldn’t that be more newsworthy?

Glenn had a thorough and thoughtful post on women and hair coverings.

Edgar shared some good tips on what to say and what not to say when others are grieving.  The gift certificate idea is very practical.

What TO say:
• “I love you.”
• “I am so sorry.” You don’t have to explain. Anything.
What TO do:
• A wordless hug.
• A card that says simply, “I grieve with you.”
• Instead of bringing cakes, drop off or (better) send gift certificates for restaurants or pizza places.

Super creepy: Planned Parenthood is now encouraging people to not disclose their HIV-positive status to sex partners until they feel ready to do so. (Hat tip: Roxanne)

Stan addresses a common objection to Calvinism — predestination and Hell.

Dan did a great piece called “Poisoning my children’s well.”  Don’t worry, it isn’t like it sounds.  It is excellent advice for Christian parents.

Abortionist’s Hypocrisy: Infant Survives Abortion, Found Alive 2 Days Later — moral schizophrenia on display.

Once the baby was found still hanging onto life after “doctors” tried to kill it, thehospital made a sudden, vain attempt to bring it to health. To complete the circus atmosphere, after the child passed, police in Italy began a homicide investigation of the incident. Why? Because in Italy infanticide is illegal.

Confused? You should be.

This incident really shows the utter, scornful hypocrisy in the pro-abortion position. How is it that one second a child is something to be so contemptuous of that it might be killed in an abortion, yet the next a victim of homicide?

Planned Parenthood targets minority communities.  Listen to this former Board Member:
