  • Pastors, You Cannot Be Silent

    If you have accepted God’s calling on your life to serve His people as a shepherd and a leader, then you have my respect. I honor you for your service, and I recognize your sacrifice. Pastoral ministry is anything but easy, and only those who have served as pastoral leaders know the immense pressures you face. You are the one to get the phone call from the shocked parents who just learned that their child was killed in a car accident. You have to bring comforting words at the funeral. You have to answer the questions of, “Where was God?”...

    A near-unanimous school board vote Tuesday night struck down a proposal to create an “After School Satan Club” at the Northern York Elementary School. The proposal was initiated by Samantha Groome, a resident of the district. Every board member except Thomas Welch voted against allowing the club to form. “Someone voted in favor, eh?” was the first reaction of Lucien Greaves, the cofounder of the Temple of Satan that created the national After School Satan Club. “It is indicative of a school board that has no idea what its limits are and its function is.” At least 300 people gathered...
  • 'Grooming' and 'pro-pedophile' surge as conservative buzzwords amid battle over 'Don't Say Gay' bill (Mild barf alert)

    A group of right-wing protesters and conspiracy theorists gathered outside Disneyland's entrance in California on Wednesday to rally against "grooming," following weeks of similar rallies against Disney — the latest in a growing culture war trend of conservatives accusing opponents of corrupting children. Prominent republicans and far-right influencers have spent weeks baselessly accusing Disney of grooming children after the company withdrew its support from Florida's controversial "Don't Say Gay" bill, which will restrict public school instructors from talking to K-3 students about "sexual identity and gender orientation." Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis signed the bill into law in late March. Grooming,...

    I used to be pro-choice. That was before I had an abortion, experienced serious trauma, and then sat in on a veterinary abortion a few years later. Most abortionists have been taught that the procedure is safe, helpful to women, and that if it’s not legal, women will die in back-alley abortions. Many claim that thousands of lives are saved every year thanks to legal abortion care. In truth, back-alley abortion deaths were rare before Roe v. Wade, and legalizing abortion didn’t prevent Dr. Kermit Gosnell from murdering living babies and endangering the lives of countless women until he was...
  • A Statement on the Sanctity of Life

    Antiochian Orthodox Christian Archdiocese ^ | 25 March A.D. 2022 | Metropolitan JOSEPH
    A Statement on the Sanctity of Life Orthodox Pro-Life Statement The Orthodox Church has consistently and unequivocally recognized the full humanity of every person beginning at the moment of conception. This position is informed by Scripture and Holy Tradition and is validated by modern science, which confirms that a new, distinct human organism comes into existence at conception. The Orthodox Church is, and always has been, unabashedly pro-life, regarding abortion as the killing of another human being. In recent weeks, this position has been called into question, and, consequently, we, Orthodox Presiding Hierarchs representing several canonical jurisdictions in the United...

    The Federalist ^ | 02/25/2022 | Sam Dorman
    Revelations about the University of Pittsburgh’s fetal tissue research exploded onto headlines last fall with physicians going so far as to suggest the institution may have received organs that were extracted from live fetuses. Others speculated that tissue may have come from abortions that violated federal anti-trafficking law, as well as other ethical standards.In the controversy’s wake, Republican state Rep. Natalie Mihalek, a Pitt alum who sits on the university’s board of trustees, announced a purportedly “independent” investigation into the university’s fetal tissue research, stating that “it is vital that these questions are answered surrounding this.” In doing so, she...

    The 49th annual March for Life will take place later this week on Friday, January 21. The days before and after surrounding the event are often a time of fellowship for pro-lifers, from all circles. For Democrats for Life of America (DFLA), this was supposed to mean holding an event for their supporters at Busboys and Poets. The establishment, however, canceled their event when learning that their would-be paying customers hold pro-life views. Kristen Day, the executive director of DFLA, emailed supporters on January 11 to let them know of the cancellation and request donations to help them find another...

    In August Gateway Pundit contributor Cassandra Fairbanks broke the story on Dr. Fauci’s use of taxpayer money to torture beagles in barbaric animal testing. Dr. Fauci funded a study in Tunisia where beagle dogs were eaten alive by parasite-infected flies. Dr. Fauci also spent over $16 million in taxpayer funds on disturbing “toxic brain injection” experiments on monkeys in 2018. Dr. Fauci more recently was caught funding gain-of-function research in a Wuhan, China laboratory blamed for the production and leak of the coronavirus. Fauci lied about his funding of the lab under oath numerous times. But Dr. Fauci’s sinister work...

    Editor's note: The following is an excerpt from "What to Say When" by Shawn Carney and Steve Karlen.What Not to SayMeaningful conversations, whether they go well or not, leave us thinking later, “I wish I would have said this” or “I wish I would have thought of that.” In such polarizing times, wording is important and saying the wrong thing could derail a conversation--especially when discussing sensitive conversations like abortion. The points we shouldn’t make, that don’t advance the conversation in a grace-filled way, will do the opposite. They can concede ground (without us even realizing it) or convey disrespect...

    Source: Unsplash/Alex SmithMany in the media regularly promote and applaud positive abortion stories. But one Olympian’s story is forcing them to hint at the tragedy of abortion – and the truth that many women choose it because they feel like they have no other choice. On July 1, the New York Times reported that U.S. hurdler Brianna McNeal said she “didn’t open her door to antidoping officials” last year because she was “traumatized after having an abortion.” Now, she faces a five-year ban on competing, among other penalties. Sports reporter Juliet Macur detailed the plight of the 29-year-old athlete who...

    Students for Life Action is calling for the removal of Dr. Anthony Fauci after his agency was caught using tax dollars to fund an experiment that involved implanting aborted babies’ scalps onto rodents. The College Fix reports the pro-life organization has collected nearly 2,000 signatures on a petition and more than 20,000 on an email petition urging federal leaders to fire Fauci, President Joe Biden’s chief medical officer. “Fauci’s actual job as a high-ranking official at HHS is to protect Americans from conception — yet he is doing the exact opposite: sacrificing the most vulnerable American children to appease Corporate...

    It was 1969. Kate invited me to join her for a gathering at the home of her friend, Lila Karp. They called the assemblage a “consciousness-raising-group,” a typical communist exercise, something practiced in Maoist China. We gathered at a large table as the chairperson opened the meeting with a back-and-forth recitation, like a Litany, a type of prayer done in Catholic Church. But now it was Marxism, the Church of the Left, mimicking religious practice:“Why are we here today?” she asked. “To make revolution,” they answered. “What kind of revolution?” she replied. “The Cultural Revolution,” they chanted. “And how do...
  • Mating With Relatives? New Research Shows It Is Not a Big Deal in Nature

    We usually assume that inbreeding is bad and should be avoided under all circumstances. But new research performed by researchers at Stockholm University, published in Nature Ecology and Evolution, shows that there is little support for this assumption. The idea that animals should avoid mating with relatives has been the starting point for hundreds of scientific studies performed among many species. But it turns out the picture is more complicated. “People assume that animals should avoid mating with a relative when given the chance,” says Raïssa de Boer, researcher in zoology at Stockholm University. “But evolutionary theory has been telling...

    Across Kentucky, pro-abortion billboards are popping up with messages that try to justify the killing of unborn babies in abortions to Christians. WTVQ reports the billboards are a project of the Kentucky Religious Coalition for Reproductive Choice, and they are located in Louisville, Nicholasville and Paducah. The messages include “Abortion: a personal decision between you and God,” “Good people have abortions. God knows and loves you,” and “Walk in my shoes before you judge my abortion.” The Rev. Diane Snowa, a board member of the pro-abortion group, said they want to counteract the Christian belief that abortion is a sin....

    Catholic leaders in the state of Michigan are warning the public that Johnson & Johnson and AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccines are made from the tissue of dead, mutilated fetuses. Archbishop Allen H. Vigneron and a coalition of six other Catholic leaders throughout the state have been sounding the alarm about these vaccines. They are demanding for public officials to be honest and transparent with the public about the troubling origin of these experimental vaccines. “It is morally permissible to receive the vaccines developed by Pfizer and Moderna. Neither of these vaccines have used cell lines originating in tissue taken from aborted...

    Dr. Rachel Levine will be the next U.S. assistant health secretary and she becomes the first openly transgender federal official to be confirmed by the U.S. Senate. The Senate voted Wednesday to confirm Levine, Pennsylvania’s former health secretary. President Joe Biden named Levine as his nominee for the key post in the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. U.S. Sen. Pat Toomey, R-Pa., voted against Levine’s confirmation, as he said he would. Toomey cited the number of coronavirus deaths in nursing homes and also said her support for restrictions to curb the spread of the virus hurt the state’s...

    'This is full-on abuse' A video of a woman having a little boy read from "The GayBCs" — a children's book that uses letters of the alphabet to introduce readers as young as 4 years old to LGBTQ words — has been making quite a stir on social media. POLL: What scares you the most? What are the details? The video begins with the little boy reading aloud the word for letter A: "ally." Then the woman with him is heard introducing the rest of the letters, beginning with "B is for" — and the tyke answers "bi." While some...

    America is presently caught in a cultural riptide that is dragging us to a place where most of us really don’t want to go. To those bothering to look, it is a current that alarmingly is growing in strength, becoming inescapable, and, with increasing speed is taking us further and further away from that shining light on the hill we were raised to love and used to call home. As that light—symbolic of our liberties and freedoms—fades in the distance, we are being swept away against our will toward a dark place ruled by a self-chosen cabal of elitists who...
