An Open Letter to Women Who’ve Had Abortions

Dear Friend, As you have no doubt noticed, many of your Pro-Life friends and family members have been on an anti-abortion jag in recent weeks with the release of the Planned Parenthood sting videos. I realize that all the shared articles and hashtags and retweets may seem to you like an enormous wave of hate…

Please Speak Into the Mic

So this morning bright and early, the folks over at Planned Parenthood (@PPact) said enough is enough and posted a gif video of a minion dropping a microphone. There are several things to note about this moment: First, God’s sense of humor should not be lost on us. #StandWithPP is a great new hashtag, along…

Planned Parenthood & Fatherless America

First off, we should be incredibly grateful for the momentum that is building against the Planned Parenthood witchdoctors.

Followers can “like” and “retweet” and “share” all day long. They can choose to go along with various opinions, various leaders, but if/when…

The Quest for Authenticity & Justification

The quest for authenticity is all about justification, all about justice, all about being right. Those who set off on quests to “find themselves” can only do so under two possible scenarios. There are those who have already found themselves, and they found themselves when they were found. And when they were found, it was…

Taking Dominion with Nanobots

From my father in-law: An article on eFitness Now: “In a miraculous medical breakthrough, scientists have developed nanobots that can travel through the blood stream and attack tumors. The nanobots actually attack the cancer by performing gene therapy and turning off the cancer growing gene in the tumor.” Read the article here. Wow. Very cool.
