Why Pulling Back Birth Control Availability Does Not Work (A Response To Ladies Against Feminism)

birthcontrol

by Lana Hope cross posted from her blog Wide Open GroundLadies Against Feminism posted this link about birth control, showing that contraception does not cut back on abortions. “Contraception reduces unintended pregnancies” has joined its fantastic make-believe friends “death with dignity,” the “efficacy” of embryonic stem cells, the “certainty” of man-made global warming, and the “positive” multiplier effect in the leftist vernacular. This quote alone is a red flare. As if everything from the left is a lie, and everything from the right is true. … [Read more...]

The World is “Dark, Selfish, and Cruel.”

Tangled

by Lana Hope cross posted from her blog Wide Open GroundI watch Tangled on TV at McDonalds this afternoon. I was supposed to be reading Paul Ricoeur (I had it on the table), but this is the time in the semester when I already have term papers semi-planned out, when our grad seminars are almost finished (they finish April 2nd), and when one more book is just not important enough to study with detail. (In case any professors see this, I am reading the book; but my brain is on overload, and I’m not going through and making 50 pages of notes on it like I normally do.) … [Read more...]

One common theme in these stories is that the church/church leaders often knew about the criminal behavior long before it was reported. (and often it is only reported when they are backed into a corner and forced to report it) … [Read more...]

I took my college-aged daughter Laura from … [Read more...]

PCC Has Released a Statement

PCC

by Samantha Field cross posted from her blog Defeating The Dragons  When I was writing my post “‘God is Done with You’: Pensacola Christian College and Sexual Violence“, I tried contacting four different departments at the school. All refused to speak with me, citing policy, and referred me to Amy Glenn, the Chief Communications Officer. It took me several days to reach her (she was out sick and very busy when she got back), but when I did eventually get in touch with her I asked her to confirm some very basic facts about the administration and their policies. When she got back with me, she stated that she could not answer most of my questions and that PCC did not comment on “blog-t … [Read more...]

“Frozen”: True Love Doesn’t See Agendas Behind Every Bush

Olaf

by Suzanne Titkemeyer cross posted from her blog True Love Doesn't RapeYou have to see this before I start talking about "Frozen". Of the many wonderful versions of the song 'Let It Go' from "Frozen" I think this one personally tops them all. But then again I love classical music so blending the song with Vivaldi's "Winter" makes sense to me. … [Read more...]
