All the Christians, Stand Up — A shooter says, All the Christians stand up. Would you stand? Would I? I've lived long enough to learn a few things about myself. One of them is that when I am under physical attack, I tend to freeze. I do really well if the situation requires moral courage.

Look at what we learn from Planned Parenthood when they’re under oath — It took testifying under oath to get Cecile Richards (CEO of Planned Parenthood) to tell the truth about what Planned Parenthood does. - She confessed that abortion does not account for "3 percent of their business" as previously regurgitated, but in fact a full 86 percent of their non-tax funded revenue.

Refusal to Print Pro-Life Flyer is Rude, but Legal — Ok. So Office Depot refused to print a flier outlining some public facts about Planned Parenthood, in particular its funding. The flier also contained a prayer for the conversion of Planned Parenthood, along with a call for prayer and fasting. That's not exactly bomb-throwing stuff.

Jailing Elected Officials Threatens Democracy, Risks Judicial Dictatorship — Kim Davis, Democrat, went to jail rather than violate her Christian values. For this, she is getting hammered by those who think they own the Democratic Party and can decide who gets to be a "real" Democrat. Donald Trump, Republican, supports sending her to jail.

What Every Pro-Lifer Needs to Know about the Senate and Planned Parenthood — They're like a giant ball, rolling through the hallways, with wiggling arms and legs sticking out and yells and screams emanating from within. Who? Why, the majority party of the United States Senate, of course. Majority Leader Mitch McConnell blocked amendments to the necessary and tough-to-veto Highway Bill.

Oregon Allows 15-Year-Olds to Get Sex Change Operations without Parental Consent — This story of politically correct excess speaks for itself. Oregon is now allowing children as young as 15 to undergo sex-change surgery without parental consent. This, in a state that does not allow 15-year-olds to drive a car or smoke a cigarette.

Why you're better off going alone than not at all — How many times have you wanted to see a buzzed-about film or been dying to check out a new restaurant or go to a concert, but you couldn't find someone to go with? Chances are, you stayed home. If you did, you wouldn't be unusual.
