Closing Prayer: 2018 Rose Dinner

Posted on January 20th, 2018

I was honored to give the closing prayer at the Rose Dinner, the banquet held in conjunction with the March for Life. It was a tremendous privilege to be among the nation’s pro-life leaders. In the Name of the Father and of the + Son and of the Holy Spirit. Amen. Blessed are You, O Lord our God, King of the universe, Creator of all things seen and unseen. You created the world from nothing; You called Life into being by Your Word; and You made our first father Adam from the earth. You opened his side and fashioned a wife for him, bone of his bones and flesh of his flesh. You blessed their marriage and called them to be fruitful and multiply.…

What do you assume about the other side?

Abby Johnson, the Planned Parenthood clinic director who “changed sides” and is now pro-life, has words of wisdom on the danger of hating those on the other side: Oh, how we love to vilify our opponents—from both sides.

I got about halfway through my shower when I started to bleed again. I bled so much that it clogged the drain. It was in that moment, me trying to cleanse myself from my sin of the abortion that the truth was exposed. It was the “blood clot” or the “blob of tissue” that the clinic talked about. It…

Brief Review: “Eugenics and Other Evils,” by G.K. Chesterton

Posted on November 19th, 2012

G.K. Chesterton published Eugenics and Other Evils in 1922. It is an interesting insight into the early eugenics movement, and contains a rebuttal by a great thinker of the twentieth century. There are some pithy gems here, such as: The modern world is insane, not so much because it admits the abnormal as because it cannot recover the normal. and: The thing that really is trying to tyrannise through government is Science…. And the creed that really is levying tithes and capturing schools, the creed that really is enforced by fine and imprisonment, the creed that really is proclaimed not in sermons but in statutes, and spread not by pilgrims but by policemen—that creed is the great but disputed system of thought which began with Evolution…
