Roundup

Mitt Romney on abortion and stem cell research in his own words — Make no mistake: He is pro-legalized abortion all the way.  He is not a conservative.  He’s better than Obama, of course, but only marginally and in the sense that it is better to smash your thumb with a hammer four times instead of five times.

Ironic Surrealism has the best and most thorough collection of the Occupy Wall Street excesses, such as this video where a large group chants about how you can have sex with animals.

Free Advanced Pro-Life Apologetics course — Scott Klusendorf is a master at his craft.  I highly encourage both sides to take these courses.  Pro-lifers can use them to better defend life.  Pro-aborts can use them to learn more about the other side.

The Crusades are still referred to reflexively as an alleged example of Christian excesses.  While there is some truth to that, the entire story is much different.  Courtesy of Stand to Reason:

Here’s a helpful article describing the real history of the Crusades.  Some key facts:

  • They were a defensive response to centuries of Muslim aggression.
  • Attacking Jews was condemned by the Pope and never the purpose of a Crusade
  • Crusaders for the most part were pious men who sacrificed a great deal to go on a crusade 

Chew on this, Warren Buffett & Co.! — GOP introduces its own Buffett Rule: Add explicit donation option to tax returns.  They could have done that all along, but this shines a light on their faux generosity.

Gay domestic terrorist groups are getting violent.  Where is the news coverage?  Where are the cries of hate crimes?  Are the pro-gay groups, including the alleged Christians in that camp, guilty for inciting this?  (Hey, that’s their logic if a gay ever gets hurt, as if the perpetrators just came from a Focus on the Family “Love Won Out” conference.)

Ron Paul pro-life ad — good for him!

Remember who got 20% of his 2008 funding from Wall Street and who got more from Wall Street than anyone else in the last 20 years, including George W. Bush.

President Obama tells a big lie about a teacher to advance his agenda and the media ignores it.

Video: Occupy Portland Protesters Sing “F*ck the USA” — Charming.  Not surprisingly, false teacher Chuck “Jesus is not the only way” Currie says that supporting Portland and other “Occupy” movements is the Christian thing to do.

Beware of billionaires claiming they want to pay more in taxes

This is a must read for anyone following the super-rich who portray themselves as selfless do-gooders who want to be taxed more: Hey, Warren, put all your money where your mouth is « Hot Air.

First, let’s state the obvious: These folks have been free to send in extra money to the government.  No one is stopping them.  Did they take advantage of that?  Apparently not.

Did you notice how they didn’t propose this novel idea when they were “just” millionaires?

Did you notice how they use all sorts of ways to avoid taxes?  I don’t object to that, of course, as long as they play by the rules.  What I do object to is them pleading for someone to please, please tax them now!

Did you notice how this might just hurt their competition more than it hurts them?

Do you think they might find ways to avoid these increased taxes?

Don’t let these guys fool you into believing they are being altruistic.

Also see When “I can” Becomes “You Must.” These “altrustic” types who want to take other people’s money to solve a problem have the ability to solve it themselves.  Just write those checks, guys!
