Adultery = destruction — another great post by MomLovesBeingAtHome — hope she doesn’t mind all the links this week!
The insanity of same sex parenting — so non-PC, but so true.
In such a debate, evidence from social science has only a secondary role. Certainly the best-designed studies confirm the obvious — that a child does best in every respect when raised by his or her own parents, or in the nearest equivalent context of an adopting mother and father. In the light of this research, the American College of Pediatricians in 2004 concludes: “The environment in which children are reared is absolutely critical to their development. Given the current body of research, the American College of Pediatricians believes it is inappropriate, potentially hazardous to children, and dangerously irresponsible to change the age-old prohibition on homosexual parenting, whether by adoption, foster care, or by reproductive manipulation. This position is rooted in the best available science.”
However, nobody needs to resort to “the best available science” to defend the obvious insight that a little child needs both a mother and a father. The judgment of anyone who cannot see this as a self-evident fact of life, as the most commonsense and necessary condition of a child’s wellbeing, is suspect.
Hat tip: Duane’s Mind
Obama’s naive trade policy — it is hard to believe, but this may be his worst idea of all. I can’t believe that he thinks that import duties are a solution at any time and especially now. But hey, they worked so well just before the Great Depression.
Iran and Honduras: Inconsistencies in U.S. Foreign Policy — I know what they mean by the title, but I wouldn’t say they are inconsistent. I think they are consistently wrong. The inconsistency they refer to is not acting where we should and acting where we shouldn’t. Sadly, there are large consequences from this. Ministries like Hope for Honduras really suffer because mission teams can’t come to help (not that I’m bitter about my November trip being cancelled).
There is a consistent lack of principle in the Obama Administration’s refusal to recognize a legal government in Honduras while recognizing an illegal one in Iran. What is most troublesome in the case of Honduras is the State Department’s announcement that the United States will not recognize the outcome of the Honduran election now scheduled for November 2009.
ACORN video number five — and does anyone really think that is the last? Does anyone believe the head of ACORN when she talks about all the offices that threw the investigators out? If that was true, do you think they just might notified other offices?
This is one of those amazing issues in American political history. A couple young no-names repeatedly and thoroughly embarrass not just a major partner of the government but the whole mainstream media as well. These folks just need to read conservative blogs more. What the MSM consider breaking news, such as the ACORN and Van Jones stories, we’ve known about for a relatively long time.
And even when the MSM finally addresses it they have tried to spin it negatively against Republicans. Good analysis of it all here.
I would like to conclude by saying that these two brave kids Giles & O’Keefe are indeed the Woodward & Bernstein of this current generation. They are probably deserving of a Pulitzer Prize award for Investigative Reporting but don’t look forward to that since the vast majority of the 18 Board Members are from Liberal Mainstream Publications or Liberal Academic Institutions and these are the same crowd that selectively has chosen to ignore this story since it didn’t follow their own story line and bias.
Yeah, somehow I don’t see Hollywood making movies about the heroics of these two, even though it would be so much more fitting than any of the journalism movies they’ve done the last few decades.
This audio of Charlie Gibson is a must listen. Absolute stunning that he didn’t know about ACORN. Hard to believe he said to just leave it to “the cables.”
