Margaret Sanger and Planned Parenthood

Well over 50 million babies have been killed through abortion in the United States since the Roe vs. Wade Supreme Court decision. Many of these abortions are now performed by Planned Parenthood, an organization formed by Margaret Sanger. Her early days saw her as the publisher of the liberal newspaper, “The Women Rebel”, which boasted the slogan, “No Gods!, No Masters!” The premier issue denounced marriage as a “degenerate institution,” capitalism as “indecent exploitation,” and sexual modesty as “obscene prudery.” In issues to follow, she published articles on sexual liberation, social revolution, contraception, and two articles that defended political assassinations.…

Spirit Undiminished

I said to my daughter-in-law regarding her baby, “She really loves her Mommy.”  Of course and her Mommy loves her as much or more, but there is something deep in these bonds of love.  I have said for years, when I see a new-born smile as they sleep that they are recalling their delight in the presence of the angels.  In their spirit, that doesn’t age and begins with all its trust hope and love, undiminished by life’s difficulty, there is still a connection with the presence of Spirit beings.  “See that you do not despise one of these little…

“Democracy demands that the religiously motivated translate their concerns into universal, rather than religion-specific, values.  It requires that their proposals be subject to argument, and amenable to reason.  I may be opposed to abortion for religious reasons, but if I seek to pass a law banning the practice, I cannot simply point to the teachings of my church or evoke God’s will.  I have to explain why abortion violates some principle that is accessible to people of all faiths, including those with no faith at all.” – Barack Obama, 6/28/2006 Abortion is perhaps the most divisive of all issues and…

Outstanding Hypocrisy

Chicago’s Governor announced recently that his city’s law enforcement officers would not enforce federal Immigration laws.  Other cities in California had previously refused to recognize federal Immigration law, proclaiming themselves cities of refuge.  This rebellion has a historical precedent, in Civil war times.  The southern States believed the constitution left matters that were not specifically addressed in the Constitution to the states.  When compelled to follow certain federal law, considered unauthorized specifically by the constitution, South Carolina seceded…
