Heya y'all!

I'm goin' to spend this week working on some more flyer ideas.  What I'm thinking about right now is doin' something about being "forced to choose."  We could start with a feminist quote, some picture, and some expression like "What is it that forced you to choose?"

Le'me know if you've got ideas, pictures, points or comments!!  Abusive boyfriends, careers and academics, financial pressures are all things we can hit with this one!

*sigh*  It sucks that our modern gods still demand bloody human sacrifice.

This disturbs me to the core...

ANTI-HOMOSEXUAL SERMON JAILS PASTOR
A Swedish pastor has been sentenced to one month in jail for preaching in a sermon that homosexuality is a sin. See WAND article. For many years I have been fighting against "hate crimes" legislation in the United States which I refer to as "thought crimes" legislation and this is why. The pastor was jailed for preaching what the Word of God says is true. The jailing of the preacher has wide spread support in Sweden where the public believes that laws against people being "offended" take precedence over free speech. I reported in my June 18th Update that a bill similar to that in Sweden had passed the Senate by a vote of 65 to 33, with many cowardly Republicans voting for the Democrat legislation to ban free speech if it offends homosexuals. Make no mistake ... if these thought crimes laws go into effect pastors will be jailed in this nation for preaching the uncensored Word of God. Pray that this kind of hate filled, anti-American, anti-free speech legislation never becomes law.
 
And for the record, here is that June 18th update since you're probably too lazy to look it up on the link:
 
"HATE" CRIMES
Senator Ted Kennedy has had his great "Hate Crimes" victory in the Senate. With the help of Republican Senators Gordon Smith (R-OR) and Arlen Specter (R-PA) the Senate added to the Defense Appropriations Bill an amendment to make thinking or saying bad things about homosexuals a crime. Many cowardly Republican Senators voted with Kennedy to give the amendment an overwhelming victory of 65 to 33. Make no mistake, this is a despicable attack on free speech. Senator Kennedy wants to be able to jail anyone who disagrees with his left-wing agenda and this is the first step down the road to abolishing the First Amendment to the Constitution. Fortunately the House of Representatives has some spine and will defend the Constitution. When the House and Senate versions of the Defense Appropriations bill go to conference committee to resolve differences the House, conferees will spike Kennedy's "Hate Crimes" Amendment which had no place in the bill to start with. House leadership has assured me that the Kennedy Amendment will never see the light of day.

Wow...
 
I can't believe how much this picture has circulated, but here's another article about our June 16th protest, using the Reuters snapshot.  w00t, as they say.

Also... (though totally unrelated)... http://www.dur.ac.uk/martin.ward/gkc/books/#BIBLIOGRAPHIES has every work of Chesterton's available at the click of a button.   Awesome, no?

A bit old, and you've probably already read it, but i think it's relevant considering there are governments that will now put you in jail for collecting and discussing biblical quotations against homosexuality...

I thought these deserved a look:
 
John Kerry Sponsors "Clone and Kill" Legislation Pro-Lifers Oppose
Washington, DC (LifeNews.com) -- Senator John Kerry has attached his name to a "clone and kill" bill that pro-life organizations oppose because it allows scientists to clone unborn children only to be killed to obtain their stem cells for use in research. Some have called the legislation a ban on human cloning. Though it prohibits the grisly practice for reproductive purposes, the legislation allows the "clone and kill" practice for research. Kerry's cosponsorship of the legislation comes at an interesting time. He has joined other lawmakers and some in the research community who are putting intense pressure on President Bush to reverse his August 2001 policy prohibiting federal funding of embryonic stem cell research. Kerry has been using the issue to paint Bush as a religious extremist and claims his pro-life views prevent patients with various diseases from obtaining potentially beneficial treatments that scientists may someday derive from embryonic stem cells. That may explain why Kerry suddenly signed on to legislation that has been sitting for over a year and isn't expected to receive a Senate vote anytime soon.

Petition: Democrats, Republicans Should Acknowledge Abortion Hurts Women
Washington, DC (LifeNews.com) -- A coalition of groups that help women who suffer from post-abortion problems has drawn up a petition for Republican and Democratic leaders imploring them to recognize the negative effects of abortion. They want both political parties to adopt language in their platforms that encourages post-abortion counseling programs and research of abortion-related complications. "Approximately 30 million American women have had one or more abortions," states the petition. "But neither major political party has acknowledged their unique experiences and concerns. These 30 million women, and millions more who empathize with them, represent a growing contingency of disenfranchised voters." The petition is addressed to Republican party chairman Edward Gillespie and Democratic party chairman Terry McAuliffe. Citing the "Forced Abortions in America" report by the Elliot Institute, the petition states that 30 to 60 percent of women who have an abortion felt pressured to do so, and most women who undergo an abortion procedure are faced with at least one negative physical or psychological reaction.

Jenni,

Are you in some Randal Terry promo literature holding up a sign about Kerry? I was looking through my mail and I could swear it was you.

Hey hey hey! The "deny pro-abort politicians like coughcoughJohnKerrycoughcough the Holy Eucharist" debate has gotten even more interesting! A canon lawyer in the Archdiocese of Boston, MA, has filed a canonical lawsuit with the Chancery Office of the Archdiocese against one Senator John Forbes Kerry, with the intent of a public declaration of the Senator's latae sententiae excommunication, as well as a redress of the scandal he has caused by improperly and sacrilegiously receiving the Eucharist. You can view the 18-page complaint brief at www.defide.com, or download it in .PDF format from www.defide.com/complaint1.pdf.

It's frightening to read the section listing all of Sen. Kerry's pro-abort standings and his voting records for the past few years. Anyway, it makes for interesting reading, if nothing else!

Pax, all!

President Bush Defends His Pro-Life Record, Encourages Advocates
Washington, DC (LifeNews.com) -- In a video address to over 1,000 people attending the National Right to Life convention, President Bush commended pro-life advocates for their hard work defending human life and touted the pro-life accomplishments of his administration. "You believe as I do that every person, however frail of vulnerable, is a blessing and has a place and a purpose in this world," the president said. "We must stand for an America where every life counts and every life matters." Bush discussed the legislation he has signed during his administration. The Born Alive Infants Protection Act, the first pro-life law passed since the Roe v. Wade decision that allowed unlimited abortions, requires medical personnel to provide babies who survive botched abortions attempts with normal medical care. Bush also codified the first federal ban on any type of abortion procedures when he signed into law a Congressional ban on partial-birth abortions. The Bush record on abortion and pro-life issues pleases NRLC president Dr. Wanda Franz, a psychology professor at West Virginia University. "President Bush has corrected the inexcusable acts of his predecessor," Franz told the crowd. "These legislative successes demonstrate how far we have come since the earliest days of the Right to Life movement."

British Figures Show Abortion Targets Teenage Girls

London, England (LifeNews.com) -- Teenagers in England, and London in particular, continue to undergo abortions at an alarming rate, according to the latest statistical research. The figures show that more than three dozen girls under the age of 14 had abortions in a single year in London. Across Great Britain, more than 35,000 teenagers had abortions in 2002. One in ten of them was under the age of 16. In London, the problem appears to be particularly acute. More than 7,500 teenagers underwent abortions in London in 2002. More than 630 of them were under age 16. The figures have raised new questions about the effectiveness of the government's sex education program. Critics of the program say that the multi-million-pound campaign to reduce teen pregnancy is simply not working. “Teenage pregnancy--apart from the rare cases where the young person is married--is usually problematic, but aborting the child only causes a much bigger problem,” said Paul Danon of the Society for the Protection of Unborn Children. “Not only is innocent human life lost, but the girls then have to live with the psychological aftermath of abortion. Society's priority shouldn't be easier abortion--or easier availability of morning-after pills which can cause abortion--but help and support for all pregnant women and girls,” Danon said.
