Catholic Bigwig at U.T. says Obama is Prolife Candidate

Liberals all must read the same misinfo. Where have we heard it before that the Dems are more "pro-life" because they love poor people more than others do and want to give them more money than Republicans do. Moreover, Dems assert that American poor children don't get adequate healthcare because of REpublicans.

My observation of poor people in the USA has been upclose and personal. I have a friend who raised some children by herself. She was forever going to the ER with them and accumulating duplicate meds for various common ailments and stock piling them on top of the frig and never looking to see if any of them would treat the newest cold virus and symptoms that afflicted her family frequently--but would instead call for new RX's when she already had meds for her symptoms or her kids' symptoms on the fridg. The rest of us run to the med chest and see if anything is still good and applicable to our symptoms. Not her, she ran to the doctor's office or the ER several times a month--chasing every fleeting pain of her own first of all --because it was free--via Medicaid.

The old welfare policy under LBJ was reformed by Republican Congress and reforms signed by Bill Clinton. The old policy encouraged people to make babies out of wedlock, keep the man out of the house, and get more money every month for each baby born out of wedlock. When the law changed (in 92 approx.) the rates of unwed pregnancy and abortion declined.

The Catholic fellow from U.T. claims in the Blade today that 3 times more abortions occur in the minority communitities, so he implies if we gave them more money they would not abort. That may be partially true, but it also increases the rate of promiscuity leading to disease and unwed pregnancies when babies are a source of income. The problem is that they continue to have 300 percent more unwed pregnancies (leading to abortion) than the mainstream. It used to be 800 percent more unwed pregnancy in the black community than in white before Roe vs. Wade. That's not because they're poor--that's because they start sex early and can't afford to do so any more than any other groups can. NO GROUP OF PEOPLE CAN AFFORD PROMISCUITY! It seems to be an intergenerational thing when teens are sexually active early, pregnant and aborting.

Democrats want to throw money at every problem--and not their money but someone else's. Of course their Hollywood spokespersons don't mind high taxes since they make so much excess they'll never miss it like the small business people and average professional folks will. These groups will tighten their belts, stop spending, hiring, investing and expanding business, providing jobs. That's not the sort of "help" we need from the Democrats.

The Catholic leader said Obama was the most "pro-life" of the 2 candidates. Yet, Obama so clearly said he would pass FOCA --Freedom of Choice Act --first thing if the democratic legislatures pass it. That would nullify all the progress made at the state levels regarding parental notification, partial birth abortion ban, and the born alive infant protection act --and the ban on federal funding for research on abortion victims.

One of our forum contributors here said nothing has been accomplished re: abortion in the years of pro-life presidencies and congresses --but that's not true. We have hope in two more pro-life justices on the Supreme Court. We haven't outlawed abortion because we haven't had a majority of God-fearing, pro-life legislators and judges --YET! But we have made some progress by voting pro-life.

IF you're really pro-life, VOTE Pro-Life--and that means GOP. Don't be fooled by these liberals who think pro-life means throwing money around just to encourage people's sense of entitlement and lack of personal responsibility.

Education, extra-marital abstinence, marriage, fidelity, sobriety, avoiding the Lotto and the casino, never starting to smoke --these are the ways to encourage to youth so they can do better than their parents and grandparents and get out of the welfare trap. Of course, conversion and commitment to Christ are the first step on a road that leads to life.

Obama's Words on Born Alive Infant Protection Act

The following information is taken from Mona Charen's column, 9/22/08, titled "Abortions sometimes do produce live births."

In the Illinois legislature, Barack headed the committee considering the Born Alive Act in that state (which the feds called BAIPA --Born Alive Infant Protection Act) --which would obligate hospitals and doctors to try to save the lives of babies who survived abortion. There were testimonies given about nurses who held babies until they died; about survivors of abortion who are glad to be alive today; about babies who were abandoned in a closet until they died (here in Toledo). When an abortion failed, the "health care" protocol was to give the baby no help; let it die.

In 2001, Barack said of this: "I mean it; it would essentially bar abortions because the equal protection clause does not allow somebody to kill a child, and if this is a child, then this would be an anti-abortion statute."

In 2003, Barack still opposed the bill (4 times in total) though a "neutrality clause" was added to say this was not to be construed as a limit on Roe Vs. Wade.

Barack said of this, in 2003, not back when he was an ignorant youth saying foolish things in college, but when he was a father himself, 5 years ago --the following:

" additional doctor, who then has to be called in an emergency situation and make these assessments is really designed simply to burden the original decision of the woman."

In other words, as Mona Charen put it, Obama's position is this: "A woman who chooses an abortion is entitled to a dead child no matter what." For this, she called him "an abortion extremist." I agree.

O I squirmed with Sarah when Charlie Gibson, with his face maliciously gargoyle-like, red eyes gleaming hot with anticipated glee, and blowing smoke from his nostrils --said,

"And what do you think of the Bush Doctrine, Sarah?"

And she hedged and hemmed and hawed a bit. Then smartly, but with obvious nervousness, said, "What aspects?" or some such question.

Sarah, next time, even in the upcoming debate, say, "What's the Bush Doctrine, Charlie? I'm not familiar with the term. You define it and I'll tell you what I think of it, if I can."

99 per cent of the viewers didn't know what it was. I've not heard much about it. Since then, I've looked it up and I know it's the media's interpretation of Bush's foreign policy--leading to "pre-emption" in Iraq. And the source I found in Google said there are at least 4 definitions of the term so she rightly asked Gibson to clarify what he wanted.

Well, we know what he wanted --to trip her up.

They did this sort of thing to Dan Quayle as Geo Bush, Sr's. running mate. The media elite who couldn't run a government if they had to, love to expose the midwesterner for his naivete, his lack of worldly knowledge and sophistication. Especially if he's a republican.

Sarah, you just relax and be your lovely self. Promise to research anything that's important to know when you draw a blank.

Don't let McCain's handlers wear you out. Follow your own instincts. They've served you pretty well thus far.

And relax in your chair. You looked a little tense and lost your model's posture, I thought --and like you didn't get a good night's sleep

We aren't behind you because you know everything there is to know: we are behind you because you share our values and ideals and we think that's important in national leaders who get our vote. And we think you've shown that you can rise to any challenge.

Don't let the Big Bad Boys of Elite Media scare you. They get no votes from us. Don't let anyone re-make you. You are just fine as you are.

Christian Life Club in Full Swing!

The church van went to pick up students at the Habitat neighborhood in Spencer Twp. and 21 kids poured out into the street to come to our church! And the alternator gave way --right away. So one of the little girls from my class, Kayla, said, "Let's pray!" and she got all the van kids to join hands around the van and pray for it. The pastor told this story about how prayer is the antidote to worry. The kids weren't worried. The van still did not start --but 4 minivans came from the church with CLC personnel and picked everyone up.

The song times are so fun -- we sing a song about the Love Chapter --"Love is kind...." and one about "I can do ALL things through Christ who strengthens me."
ALL THINGS! The leader says, "even homework?" The kids shout "ALL THINGS!" "EVen chores?" "ALL THINGS!" --and so on.

The Bible indeed teaches good citizenship, faith in God, kindness, and how to be a child of God.

In my class, we worked on our memory verse, Ephesians 4:32, as a rap. And the lesson had to do with accepting others/friendship Badge. The CLC lesson from my leader's guide suggested writing unkind words toward others with a tooth paste tube --I wouldn't let them use anything vulgar (bathroom and bodily function words) --but they came up with plenty of ideas like "Stupid." And then at the end noted that we couldn't put the paste back into the tube by any means. And that saying unkind words and putting people down is just like that. We can't take it back very well --not at all. Those insults are just hanging out there to hurt feelings.

Then we talked about kindness, apology and forgiveness as in their Bible verse:

Brian got the rap noise rhythm going:

"Be ye kind --one toanother --ten-der-hearted--forgivingoneanother --even as God --forChrist'ssakeHath --forgiven--YOU! E---phesians four: thirty-TWO!"

Author Bruce Lawrence, Defenders of God: The Fundamentalist Revolt Against the Modern Age, defines fundamentalism as " the affirmation of religious authority as holistic and absolute, admitting of neither criticism nor reduction; it is expressed through the collective demand that specific creedal and ethical dictates derived from scripture be publicly recognized and legally enforced ."

If Bruce Lawrence's expression is widely held, then indeed American democracy cannot abide such a sub-group in this nation.

1.religious idealism as basis for personal and communal identity;

True enough, I guess. We try to live by our beliefs and ideals which instruct us to be forgiving, loving, compassionate, unselfish, law-abiding, kind, honest,courageous, etc. We try to do this individually and corporately as families and churches. We believe in being good neighbors. That's not to say that all of us live up to our ideals all the time--but we know we should --and most of us try.

2. fundamentalists understand truth to be revealed and unified;

Revealed, yes. Unified? what does that mean. We certainly don't all agree on Biblical interp, roles of women --thus, many denominations and independent churches.

3. it is intentionally scandalous -- outsiders cannot understand it;

Scandalous??? what does THAT mean?
I think outsiders can understand it, they just don't share our beliefs.

4. fundamentalists envision themselves as part of a cosmic struggle;

I guess so. the battle between good and evil, people of faith and people who despise bht Bible-believing (so-called fundamentalist) Christians, don't believe in God, don't believe the claims about Christ. There is a battle between those who believe in religious liberty and those who want to shut up the Christians, seeing them as dangerous--when the real danger is the Left's desire to squelch the religious freedom and free speech rights of Christians.

5. they seize on historical moments and reinterpret them in light of this cosmic struggle;

Sort of. Some of us do. Some of us see natural disasters, enemy attacks, as possibly judgments from God --calling us to our knees.
The Bible implies this to be so --but also says the rain falls on the just and the unjust. We don't always know God's purposes in the evil He allows --when it is HIS random or purposeful allowance in a fallen world or when it is OUR doing. For sure, man's inhumanity to man is man's doing. But America's defeat at the hands of an enemy could result from our inner moral deterioration and failure to believe in God, hostility toward Christ and His followers. Hedonists fall asleep at the wheel, oblivious to the harm of immorality in a nation.

6. they demonize their opposition and are reactionary;

I think the demonization is worse on the left, frankly. We just define immorality Biblically and say so; you want us stopped, muzzled, eliminated because you claim we are dangerous. You sure aren't doing anything to bring us to your side intellectually with all the ad hominem attacks.

7. fundamentalists are selective in what parts of their tradition and heritage they stress;

Really? Some churches are hung up on the role of women, and there are Calvinists vs. Arminians in scriptural perspective --but we all know we should be busy about the Father's Business of proclaiming Christ to the world and doing compassionate deeds to "the least of these." Some are pentecostal; some are not; some are holiness churches; some emphasize more man's depravity and think he can't live a holy life even with God's help.

So what?

8. they are led by males;

Yes, but women have been very influential --through their children, and the teaching of children, missionary work, and their helpmeet roles and wise counsel and assistance to male leaders, including their husbands.
They have been influential in Bible study leadership --even Beth Moore's studies are admired and followed by men. Some TV women preachers have had effective ministries. They certainly are less run by men than the Catholic church.

9. they envy modernist cultural hegemony and try to overturn the distribution of power.

Huh? Maybe you mean they try to prevent the culture from going to Sodom, Gommorah and Hell in a handbasket? by resisting porn as "free speech," by resisting infanticide by abortion as women's right, by resisting the muzzling of the church by new laws preventing Biblical preaching and teaching if it "offends" someone, by resisting the change in marriage definition, undermining the strength of the traditional nuclear family.

I don't call our leftist critics "a clear and present danger" to the US, as UptheFlag and Mr. Rake call us, though left wing ideals ARE corrosive to decency in our culture --but when you start calling someone "dangerous," isn't the next step the denial of freedom to such a group? After all, we put dangerous people in jail or on a short leash --as they put Christians in jail in Korea and China and Muslim nations for speaking freely of Jesus Christ.

There is evil in the world --and danger --but it is not coming from the Christians.

Thank you for adding your name to the online petition asking the Chinese government to free Pastor Bike. Your voice was heard! Pastor Bike is FREE! On Friday, August 29, prominent Chinese house church leader Zhang Mingxuan, affectionately known as "Pastor Bike," his wife and a co-worker were released from Chinese custody. Pastor Bike was arrested along with his wife and co-worker August 6, two days before the Olympic Games began in Beijing. An outspoken evangelist, Pastor Bike has travelled on his bike to many places in China, handing out Christian literature and Bibles and preaching the gospel of Jesus Christ.

Sarah Palin Made the Superior Choice for Women

Sarah saved two babies that liberal women would have aborted, a child with Down's --and a child of an unwed teen mother. And they are beaming with joy as a family!

And what's not to admire about this family? O, of course, they aren't perfect and who knows if Levi, the daughter's boyfriend, will prove worthy of the decision to marry the girl he impregnated? They are sure one handsome comple --and Sarah and husband as well.

And how cool to see Mr. Palin taking on the spouse's role, to make a speech, to wave and shake hands -just as political wives do. And yet, I don't get the sense that he is at all jealous of his wife or feeling sheepish about his secondary role in the political arena. What a guy!!

I see that CNN and CNBC's Olbermann and Maddow have started to mock Palin for being religious. Silly woman--praying for good things for America and Alaska and the people. Praying specifically about a pipeline Alaska wants and so on. No, no! Not a real evangelical --possibly inheriting the mantle of the presidency from an expired McCain someday! The Liberals must be beside themselves with horror and incredulity! How could this have happened! Where did this family come from!!!????

Who would have thought a Republican could have more charisma than Obama?? O, hear the weeping and gnashing of teeth as the snakes roil in their pits! See for an example!
