Christian Hypocrites Denounce “Day of Silence” While Remaining Silent About Pro-Life Version of the Event

More than a dozen leaders of conservative Christian groups have issued a call for parents to keep their children at home during next month’s “Day of Silence” (a student-run initiative during which volunteers don’t speak, all on behalf of the members of the LGBT community who have been forced to be silent about their sexual identities).

Many of the signers are familiar to readers of this site, like Laurie Higgins (of the Illinois Family Institute), Matt Barber, Dr. Michael Brown, Peter LaBarbera, Mat Staver, and Scott Lively.

Pro-Life Journalist Argues That Contraception, Which He Says Led to Gay Marriage and Divorce, Will Destroy Us

If you are like me, and you run across an article entitled “Contraception gave us divorce and gay ‘marriage’ and will destroy us: here’s how“… you have to click.

Like the apple in the Garden of Eden, it’s just too tempting to walk away from; and, also like the apple, you inevitably regret it afterward.

Granted, it’s not a “damning mankind” level of regret. On the other hand, the article — alas — is actually real (and really bad). It’s from the anti-abortion site, Life Site News, and provides a fascinating window into the some of the darker corners of the pro-life world.

Catholic Bishop Says Being Gay is Like Having Down Syndrome: It’s Not What God Intended

Here’s some unsolicited advice: If you don’t understand a topic, stop pretending to be an expert in it. So if you’re an unmarried virgin, your advice on sex and marriage ought to be taken with a huuuuuge grain of salt.

Irish Catholic Bishop Kevin Doran (below) didn’t take any of that advice. During an interview with the NewsTalk Breakfast radio show, his ignorance on a variety of subjects came through loud and clear.

Like when he said gay couples with kids weren’t really parents:

Ohio Requires Abortion Doctors to Conduct Non-Existent Fetal Viability Tests on Women

Conservatives are often lambasted for their ignorance of science and medicine, particularly when taken in combination with their desire to pass laws about these same topics. Pro-life “gynoticians” are particularly infamous for this… like Vito Barbieri, who graced his fellow Idaho state representatives with his musings about whether women could swallow a camera for remote gynecological exams.

Ohio’s anti-abortion warriors might have topped him, though, when it comes to sheer ignorance. Among a slew of abortion restrictions passed in the past few years is one that mandates that women seeking an abortion after 20 weeks must undergo a fetal viability test before having the procedure done. The problem?

The test doesn’t exist.

Pastor’s Wife Who Works In Abortion Clinic Shrugs Off Critics, Tells Them To Call Back When They Are Free Of Sin

That Bible verse about not judging lest you be judged? Or the one about not casting the first stone unless you’re free of sin? Or the one that advises you to worry less about the speck in another person’s eye than about the plank in your own?

You won’t find many churchy couples in Alabama who put that into practice – at least not the way Callie and Louis Chatman do. Louis Chatman is the pastor of New Elam Baptist Church in Montgomery. His wife Callie works in a local abortion clinic, and he’s not above driving her to work.

A Baptist preacher’s wife in Alabama who works at a local abortion clinic hit back at her critics Monday, declaring that those who criticize women who work at abortion facilities should first address the sins in their own lives before criticizing what women do with their own bodies.

I feel that we have all sinned. None of us are perfect. No sin is greater than any sin. I don’t know why, other than that’s the only decision [abortion] that a woman could make. That’s her right to make that decision because that’s her body,” Callie Chatman, a certified medical technician who works at Reproductive Health Services told the Christian Post in an interview Sunday.
