Annunciation as a pro-life holiday

Yesterday was the celebration of the Annunciation, the ancient church holiday nine months before Christmas that marks the angel’s appearance to Mary and the conception of our Lord.  That’s when the Incarnation began, with important implications for the pro-life cause. [Read more...]

Political conservatives vs. social conservatives?

The Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) is the big conservative conclave that meets annually to rally the troops and to make plans for political activism.  But this year’s meeting, which started yesterday, has no sessions on pro-life causes, traditional marriage, or religious freedom.  Which makes some social and religious conservatives wonder if they are getting written out of the conservative political movement.

I’m astonished that the seemingly leftist Assange who is accused of being a sexual predator might be pro-life.   (Do any of you know more about this or about his comment?)   Bringing the pro-life cause into the civil liberties crusade and the libertarian movement would be huge and perfectly fitting.  Unborn children have no civil liberties.
