Abortion Hurts Women

May 30th, 2008 Viewed 2025 times, 2 so far today

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA         When I say that Abortion Hurts Women, I’m not talking about a lot of things that are very valid:

  • I’m not talking about the physical pain of dilation before the baby is taken.
  • I’m not talking about the physical pain of healing after the procedure.
  • I’m not talking about the emotional pain of knowing that a life was ended.
  • I’m not talking about the pain that is felt every time a mother sees another child of the same age.

More basic than that– Abortion is killing women.

Jumping on the Bandwagon

May 30th, 2008 Viewed 966 times

It seems that very few people have an original idea– or if they are they are ridiculed.  The current thing that is “in vogue” is to bash the President and claim no association to him.

In a move reminiscent of Peter betraying Christ, Scott McClellan recently denounced the President’s lead up to the war, stating in a tell-all book that he had reservations about the entire thing.

Thou Shalt Not Question Barak Obama

profile3_obama This is the first time in my life that I can remember a politician getting the “Messiah” type treatment.  Yes, I’ve lived through the Reagan sweep of 1984, but I’ve never witnessed what Sen. Obama is attempting to do, with good success.

He’s attempting to make anything that would be a negative for him to be off limits for discussion or even mention!

It started with his middle name– Hussein.  He can use it, but “you” can’t.  Why?  Because it attaches him with another Hussein.  It has baggage.

California, New York, and Same Sex Marriage

wedding collection 3The past few weeks has seen a flurry of activity in the area of same-sex marriage.  Specifically, the Supreme Court of California ruled that same-sex couples should have equal protection rights under the California Constitution to marry, and have instructed the state to do so starting in the middle of June.

firefox3 Yes, I’m one of those.  If there’s a beta program available for a piece of software that I like, I’m in it.  I was in the beta program for Office 2007 (which I really like) and I’ve downloaded betas for Firefox 3 as they’ve been coming out.

And now I’m running Firefox 3.0 Release Candidate 1.  For those of you not in the software industry, this means that they’ve gotten FireFox 3 to the point that they think that it might be good enough for the general public (meaning that the number of known issues and bugs are sufficiently low that they believe they’re ready for everyone to grab it).  And you should!

For You Math Geeks

Integrated There I was, minding my own business and surfing the web when I stumbled onto something that I couldn’t stop laughing at.  It’s true, I’m not a math geek.  Yes, I took Calculus in high school, and my statistics professor in college kept referring to me as “the only one in this room to take Calculus” and I have a calculator that can plot graphs and play a Tetris like game back in 1995…  But I disliked math.  I had the music minor.

Do This in Remembrance of Me

Communion 2One of the things that Christians are charged to remember is the last meal that Christ had with His disciples:

1 Corinthians 11:23-26: For I have received of the Lord that which also I delivered unto you, That the Lord Jesus the [same] night in which he was betrayed took bread: And when he had given thanks, he brake [it], and said, Take, eat: this is my body, which is broken for you: this do in remembrance of me.  After the same manner also [he took] the cup, when he had supped, saying, This cup is the new testament in my blood: this do ye, as oft as ye drink [it], in remembrance of me.  For as often as ye eat this bread, and drink this cup, ye do shew the Lord’s death till he come.
