How the World’s Hatred of Babies May Affect you More Than Anything Else

Jonathan Last, author of What to Expect When  No One’s Expecting, wrote America’s Baby Bust, one of the most insightful, educational pieces on the effects of a population that doesn’t value babies and life. As a mom of a large family, I have, perhaps, a heightened awareness of the temperature of the culture’s and even my community’s  attitude toward […]

Do YOU Think Consistently? (Hypocrites and the Food Stamp Comment.)

I recently posted on Facebook, about an interaction I had: “He says to me, ‘Well, if you can feed them without my tax $$ I guess it’s great if you want to have lots of kids.’ Me, thinking: ‘I appreciate your permission to reproduce on God’s timetable. We have never stolen your tax $ to […]

Women, Work & Freedom: One Big, Fat, Suicidal Error

Nicholas Farrell nailed it in his piece, Women, Work & Freedom, exposing the truths that most of us are too afraid to say out loud, regardless of the damage we’ve all suffered from ignoring it. “Women in Europe and America have made one great big fat suicidal error as a result of modern feminism since […]

As the Family Goes, So Goes Civilization

Teach it to your children… Family and marriage are institutions designed by God–they are not man-made.  Perhaps then, we shouldn’t be surprised that the family is becoming an enemy. Who would have ever believed there would come a time when society would be hostile to what has always been considered the basic unit of its […]

Relativism: The Most Perilous Threat to a Free Society

Relativism:  a theory that conceptions of truth and moral values are not absolute but are relative to the persons or groups holding them.  Great, 3 min. clip warning us to fight relativism.  And may I add my own reminder…as goes the church, so goes the culture. Interesting…a reader sent me this quote: “We are moving […]

What Does the School Bus Have to Do With the Future of American Healthcare?

“One of the mantras we hear repeatedly these days is, “we don’t want socialism.”  While that sounds good (and conservative, and constitutional, and patriotic, etc.), it rings hollow when you consider the overwhelming majority of the people leading the charge have their children in what amounts to socialized education.  What’s the difference?  If you’re really […]

God Doesn’t Have to Judge America…But Take Heart!

If you’re a Christian, you are deeply concerned with the climate of our nation and the outrageous steps in the ungodly direction we’re taking.  Last week I attempted to express the way God works among sinful nations to bring about judgment.  All of Creation is so designed, His laws written into its fabric, that judgment […]

Society’s Power: The Family

When it comes to real estate–location, location, location. And when it comes to strong societies–family, family, family. I almost get sick to my stomach when I hear Christians tsk other Christians for “making too much of the family”.  I suppose there could be such a thing, but I think we make a grave mistake assuming […]

They’ve Banned Tag–Yes, the Game–Because Kids Were Chasing Each Other

Love Glenn Beck…can’t help it. Yeah, I know he’s Mormon. He’s also smart, he’s got a backbone and a brain. A rarity among media-types these days. I’ve copied and pasted a few of my favorite pieces from him for posts here and there. I’m so glad he’s still allowed on prime time television. This radio […]

Japanese Urged to "Go Home & Multiply"….America’s Hair-Brained Plans to Increase Contraception Funding

(Warning: Fire extinguisher may be needed.) In an interview with ABC’s George Stephanopoulos, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., defended huge sums of money for “family planning services” tucked into President Obama’s proposed economic stimulus package, claiming contraception will reduce government costs. “…contraception, will reduce costs to the states and to the federal government.” […]
