Abortion, Human Dignity, and Jesus

When we reject the teaching of Sacred Scripture concerning what grounds human dignity and purpose, it only follows that we’d lose all dignity and purpose.

In his book Homo Deus, Harari (a self-proclaimed atheist) concludes it doesn’t exist. If mankind isn’t made in God’s image, then we really aren’t any more special than piglets or puppies. When you don’t believe humans have objective dignity, you cannot truly value human life. If you go one step further and reject the belief that humans... Continue Reading

A Real Live Slippery Slope in Action for All to See

The current state of the abortion issue is just like watching a volcano erupt out to sea and build an island in double quick time.

The place we are in late modernity today vis a vis abortion is a prime example of a decision being made about a matter in which all of the presenting arguments at the start of the process are swamped and overrun by the landslide that follows once the decision has been taken. For all of the scornful... Continue Reading

New Law Requires New Jersey Public Schools To Teach LGBT History

The measure was modeled after a similar law that passed in California in 2011.

New Jersey boards of education must adopt instruction that accurately portrays “the political, economic, and social contributions of persons with disabilities and lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people, where appropriate,” according to the text of the law. Murphy said he was “honored” to sign a bill that will make teaching “about the rich contributions and... Continue Reading

Pakistan High Court Upholds Asia Bibi Acquittal

"How can we hang someone on a false witness statement."

Rimmel Mohydin of Amnesty International said in a statement released Tuesday that with the ruling, Bibi “must finally get her freedom and an end to her ordeal. After nine years behind bars for a crime she didn’t commit, it is difficult to see this long overdue verdict as justice. But she should now be free... Continue Reading

Christian Group Can Bar Gay Student From Leadership Role, Judge Rules

A federal judge ruled the University of Iowa was wrong to penalize a Christian student group after it barred a gay student from a leadership position.

[Judge] Rose found that the university had unevenly applied its human rights policy by allowing other groups to limit membership based on religious views, race, sex and other protected characteristics. “Particularly when free speech is involved, the uneven application of any policy risks the most exacting standard of judicial scrutiny, which the defendants have failed...

Why You Can’t Get to Heaven through the Mormon Faith

Despite the rate at which it has grown, Mormonism contains fatal doctrinal problems.

Though it has attracted many, Mormonism cannot be said that adherence to it will lead one to heaven. This is no minor issue. Eternity is at stake. If we love people; truly love the soul and well-being of a person, we will be concerned about their life through eternity. If there is a truck barrelling... Continue Reading

It’s A Dark Day In New York State

In this critical and rare moment of taking the voices and lives of women seriously, of holding men accountable for the way they behave and the power they wield, why not go the distance and completely discredit the lie of abortion?

A few times this summer I stood with a friend on the approved scrap of weeds between the highway and the parking lot to pray. After a while it occurred to me that this was the closest I was ever going to get to witnessing anything like the crucifixion. You stand there, helpless, grieving, and... Continue Reading

The Consequences of Ideas in New York

How can such a large segment of society embrace such a diabolical legislation, against all scientific proof of sustainable human life within the womb?

Attitudes and behaviors are formed from ideas. And behind the gleeful celebration of the slaughter of pre-born babies is the idea that there is no God. The chief doctrine of secular humanism – embedded in the very expression – is that life does not originate as the creation of a personal and moral deity. The consequence of... Continue Reading

How the Left Gave Us “Toxic Masculinity”

Who was responsible for mocking these “1950s” families and for encouraging young people to rebel against it?

Traditionally, marriage civilized men by channeling their sexual desires into a loving relationship and parenthood.  And it channeled their aggressiveness into protecting their family and working hard to provide for them.  The fathers, in turn, taught their sons how to treat women and how to discipline themselves so they could grow up into effective adults....

No Mere Morality Issue

I believe that human life is carefully fashioned by God as a reflection of Himself and is to be treated with dignity and respect--and that dignity and respect extends to the baby in the womb.

Behind David’s words, Jeremiah’s call, and John the Baptist’s leap is this settled biblical conviction: life and personhood exist before birth. And since that’s the case, every child in the womb deserves the respect and dignity of being treated like a human being made in the image of God.   I was gutted this week... Continue Reading
