More on the comparison between arguments for slavery and abortion

Comments Off on More on the comparison between arguments for slavery and abortion

Father Thomas D. Williams had this to say about support for abortion by Catholic Democrats: It is fascinating to read over texts circulated in the middle of the 19th century in defense of the practice of slavery. When we look back at how revered politicians, intellectuals, and churchmen could seriously defend a practice that now […]

When in doubt, kill, kill, kill?

Obama recently clarified his position on when life begins (before he had said it was “above [his] pay grade”).  In an interview with ABC News’ This Week program on Sunday, Obama said, “What I intended to say is that, as a Christian, I have a lot of humility…all I meant to communicate was that I […]

Jesus is madly in love with us

Great insight on the Good Shepherd from my friend John.

Another question for Jehovah’s Witnesses

Jehovah’s Witnesses claim that their New World Translation, put together by “translators” without any legitimate credentials (the lead translator dropped out of college in his second year), is superior to other translations. The NWT almost completely eliminates references to the deity of Christ. If they are correct and the original Greek text does not show […]

Proskuneo=obeisance?

I’ve been having a long chat with a Jehovah’s Witness lately. (I’ve also been busy with work, which is why I’ve not been around much lately.) Anyway, he asked me why I do not worship God the Father only and pointed to John 4:23 (“Nevertheless, the hour is coming, and it is now, when the […]

Comments Off on Genocide in the US of A

I just got an e-mail from the Center for Bioethical Reform, and they provided two interesting facts about abortion in the United States: -Did you know that since 1973, more than twice as many blacks have died from abortion than from heart disease, cancer, accidents, violent crimes and AIDS combined? -Did you know that Blacks […]

Opposing same sex marriages

Randy Alcorn posted a great piece on his blog, Eternal Perspectives, the other day. It deals with same sex marriage and the reasons we should oppose it. A few excerpts: …Marriage has been the societal building block for millennia; it has developed as the method by which cultures pass on, from generation to generation, who […]

Guns and martyrdom

I understand John Piper is a fairly well-known pastor. I’ve not personally heard any of his sermons, but I’ve met several bloggers who like him. The following commentary on his blog is weird, though, to say the least. What do the supreme court ruling on guns and the martyrdom of missionaries have to do with […]

Shroud of Turin back in the news

The Shroud of Turin is back in the news. John Jackson, a physics lecturer at the University of Colorado contends that the results of the carbon dating tests done back in the 80’s are suspect because of possible contamination. You can count me among the skeptics, but I am still fascinated by the shroud nonetheless. […]

What if SETI found ET?

The question was posed at Uncommon Descent in response to a survey. Personally, I am absolutely convinced that there are no sentient extraterrestrials out there (I’m undecided as to whether or not I think there might be unintelligent life on other planets). I agree with one of the commenters at UD who said, The problem […]
