It is a Great Gift to Carry the Cross of Someone You Love

ncregister.com — Mama slipped through my hands. It was as if her bones were strands of boiled spaghetti, as if she was liquid rather than solid. I fought the fall all the way down. She landed in a sprawl against the oxygen machine, her head wedged between it and the portable potty.

What Every Pro-Lifer Needs to Know about the Senate and Planned Parenthood

ncregister.com — 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

patheos.com — 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

latimes.com — 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.

patheos.com — The United States Senate is finally going to vote on a bill they claim will help sex trafficking victims. No monies will go to shelters for sex trafficking victims. All the $$ will go to law enforcement and health care facilities.

Are Gay Marriage Activists Too Needy to Take Yes for an Answer?

patheos.com — They're going to keep going until they lose this war they've won. Gay marriage is knocking over barriers everywhere. After a long, hard fight, it appears that gay marriage proponents are winning. If they were smart, they'd take "yes" for an answer and pick up their winning marbles before people start changing their minds.

Satanists Gave Back the Host, but We’ve Still Got a Black Mass Happening.

patheos.com — So, the satanists obeyed a court order and gave back the consecrated host they'd stolen. Was it the "real" consecrated host? All I know is that they signed a document saying it was, and that they no longer possess a consecrated Host and they will not use a consecrated Host in their ritual.

foreignpolicy.com — For a moment last week, it looked as though the people of the Central African Republic (CAR) were getting some much-needed good news.

Justice for MH17

foreignpolicy.com — The U.N.'s human rights chief, Navi Pillay, accused Israel of potential war crimes on Wednesday, July 23, ratcheting up the rhetoric and the potential consequences of the ongoing battle between Israel and Hamas. In Gaza, open warfare means that not far behind lurks the intellectual equivalent of ricocheting rockets; namely, lawfare.
