Stanek weekend Q: Why is it always the pro-life movement that is told to take on other issues?

climate change pro-life movement

The title of the September 8 USA Today column was a bit misleading.

Author Tom Krattenmaker’s focus was urging pro-life Christians to become involved in the effort to sustain water, the growing scarcity of which, he claimed, is becoming a worldwide problem:

Duck Dynasty’s Phil Robertson: “Horrible diseases follow immoral conduct”

dd-s4-phil-castbio-688x1065Feathers flew in the blogosphere after Phil shared with my radio audience his biblical belief that God wants a man and woman to keep sex within the confines of marriage. Not exactly groundbreaking news that a Christian would uphold what the Bible teaches about sexual immorality – but more than enough to stir outrage and distortions from the Left.

Predictably, Phil‘s critics pounced on his comments about what the Bible says on the consequences of sin. “God says, ‘One woman, one man,’ and everyone says, ‘Oh, that’s old hat, that’s that old Bible stuff,’” Phil told Washington Watch listeners. “I’m thinking, let’s see now; a clean guy – a disease-free guy and a disease-free woman – they marry and they keep their sex between the two of them. They’re not going to get Chlamydia, and gonorrhea, and syphilis, and AIDS. It’s safe. Now to me, either it’s the wildest coincidence ever that horrible diseases follow immoral conduct, or, it’s God saying, ‘There’s a penalty for that kind of conduct.’ I’m leaning towards there’s a penalty toward it.”

Phil is right and the social science confirms that God’s plan is the best. God is not a cosmic kill joy. God shows us through his Word the way to enjoy life. But Phil didn’t always have it right. He lived a life of sin for 28 years before his life dramatically changed after he came to know Christ. “I have run with the wicked for 28 years and run with the Godly for 40 years. The contrast is astounding.”

~ Tony Perkins, president of Family Research Council, speaking about a September 9 interview he conducted with Duck Dynasty patriarch Phil Robertson, as quoted by FRC’s Washington Update

Pro-life video of the day: Man asks for $50k not to have baby aborted

by Hans Johnson

Pro-life protesters had an unsettling interchange with a couple going into an Aurora, Illinois, abortion clinic.

A man cordiallly approached them, saying he and his significant other were there for an abortion because they already had a child and couldn’t afford another. Asked if he didn’t know he was having his child killed, he readily said “Yes.” When the questioner offered to take the child, he smiled and refused. “We’re not gonna give it away,” said the woman.

Which propted the man to say: “I’ll make a deal with you, man. You give me $50,000, I’ll keep this baby.”

Pro-life news brief 9-12-14

by JivinJ, host of the blog, JivinJehoshaphat

  • Planned Parenthood’s Cecile Richards has an editorial at CNN which claims that making the birth control pill available over the counter would “push women back to 1950s.”

    Compare this recent editorial to a Huffington Post piece written by Richards in 2013 where the FDA’s decision to make emergency contraception available over the counter for women of all ages (including teen girls) was described as “wonderful news” and meant that there would be “no barriers, no shame.”

Archbishop of NY soft on pro-abortion politicians receiving Holy Communion

by Carder

archbishop-timothy-dolanThe Archbishop of New York says that the issue of pro-abortion Catholic politicians committing sacrilege, not to mention the sacrilege being participated in by those giving them Holy Communion, is “in the past.” That’s such an arrogant statement it takes your breath away.

First of all, it is a direct contradiction of Canon Law—number 915, to be specific.

Secondly, it absolutely deflates many pro-life Catholics’ efforts – takes the winds right out of their sails – by suggesting in a rather in-your-face kind of way, “We’ve moved on. Get over it.”

For all those pro-lifers praying in front of abortion chambers across the country, you are correct if you are feeling like you have been abandoned at the barricades—you have. It’s also interesting that he brands the issue as “inflammatory.” Why do you think it’s inflammatory in the first place? Because it involves sacrilege, the defilement of the Body and Blood of Our Blessed Lord.

~ Catholic apologist Michael Voris, deconstructing Archbishop Timothy Cardinal Dolan’s interview with the Boston Globe regarding the controversy surrounding pro-abortion politicians claiming to be Catholic and receiving Holy Communion, Church Militant.TV, September 11

Pro-life vid of the day: Man with cerebral palsy sees life story in “The Giver”

by Hans Johnson

TheGiver-MurderAmong a number of well-received family-friendly movies this year was The Giver, based on a popular novel for young adults. It describes a futuristic world where a seeming utopia masks a Culture of Death where those deemed  a burden on society – whether old or newborn – are done away with.

Pro-life blog buzz 9-9-14

  • Judie Brown of American Life League discusses an issue that sometimes separates pro-life activists. She believes pro-lifers should not waste time and resources fighting for laws that force abortionists to have admitting privileges at local hospitals. While many pro-lifers rightfully think abortionists fail to meet that standard, and this is a way to expose them and shut down abortion centers when no physician qualifies, Brown quotes ALL’s Jim Sedlak, who voices an alternative opinion:

    While pro-lifers get caught up in trying to argue for these kinds of laws, statements are made that you would never expect from a pro-life person. In fact, after the Alabama decision, one pro-life leader, who is one of the strongest fighters for life in the country, actually argued that these laws are needed to protect women who are choosing to have an abortion.

    This has brought us a long way from the days when it was clearly recognized that the energies of the pro-life movement were focused on saving the baby, praying for the woman, and finding a way to show women that abortion was not her only solution to her perceived problems.
