ISIS “split her in two; she would not convert!”

When I was a little girl, and afraid of monsters in my darkened bedroom, I used to think that if I would just close my eyes and turn my head away, I would be alright. If I could just look away, the monster could not see me, would not get to me, could not use and abuse me. I would be safe.Looking away did not keep the monster at bay. It just ended up fracturing me in ways that still demand daily work at reconstruction and restoration.I know people want to look away from this evil. Our … [Read more...]

Savage’s Abortion Facetiousness vs DeBlasio’s Determination

My email filled up yesterday with people carrying on about Dan Savage, and his absurd off-the-cuff remarks delivered during a "Festival of Dangerous Ideas". If you missed it, here's what he said:C'mon, that's a toss-off; he's clearly not serious but merely playing to a goofy crowd eager to think of itself as subversive and brave and oh, so intellectual, by listening to "dangerous ideas" that are not dangerous at all. To say "Population Control! Too many people on the planet!" to that … [Read more...]

Is Thinking What Makes Babies? Harris Perry Says So – UPDATED

I'm sorry, but something about this woman just creeps me out. Perhaps it is because her beauty seems incongruous to her person, which screams "perpetual 14 year old".You have to go here to watch her and hear her. It's so bizarre:“When a pregnancy is wanted...it is easy to think of the bump as a baby."As opposed, I guess to something vegetative, or lupine?I'm perfectly aware that "the bump" is a trendy bit of word-play -- the first (and necessary) step toward dehumanizing a p … [Read more...]

“Only Bad Guys Hate Babies”

geddeswannabepic

My image, 1986And with that, Simcha Fisher speaks truth:I've had a woman hold a door for my double stroller and hiss, "You have too many children." My friends have been lectured in their church parking lots about their irresponsible breeding behavior. They've been glared at for the high crime of bringing children into a supermarket. People get up and change seats with a groan of disgust when we come into a waiting room, as if the pretty little toddler in sandals and a sundress is … [Read more...]

Obama, Planned Parenthood and his Daughters, Again

I don't mean to be a nudge, I really don't. But it's starting to creep me out, how much Obama loves Planned Parenthood, and how he clearly lives with the expectation that his daughters are going to kill his grandchildren, and negate the coming of love.“Mr. Romney wants to get rid of funding for Planned Parenthood. I think that is a bad idea,” Obama said. “I’ve got two daughters. I want them to control their own health care choices. We’re not going backwards, we’re going forwards.”Obama’s … [Read more...]

The Busy Servants of Moloch – UPDATED

When the "learning opportunity" of the Susan G. Komen/Planned Parenthood debacle was taking place, I wrote:[the past day's high drama had given] me a mental image of Moloch, enraged and stomping and roaring because there was a threat of less meat coming to his fire.Today, Moloch is appeased; the media’s heartbeat and respiration are returning to normal. They and their pals in DC can take a nice, deep cleansing breath and sit back and smile, understanding what they have just demonstrated … [Read more...]

Komen and HHS: The Day of the Bully Dawns – UPDATED

Moloch

In just about 24 hours the "non-political" billion-dollar entity known as Planned Parenthood -- which does not itself do mammograms, despite how ABC News frames it -- managed to leak the news that the Susan G. Komen Foundation would no longer be contributing $700,000 dollars to its coffers, get the two stupidest women in the US Senate to go into public hysterics, bring out the heavy guns of the mainstream media and apparently win Komen's surrender!We want to apologize to the American public … [Read more...]

Our Daughters Dreams Arise from this Glad Slaughter!

The president, whose administration last Friday declared that religiously-founded institutions -- schools, hospitals and charities -- have no right to their own consciences when it comes to paying for contraception, abortifacients and sterilization -- dropped these pearls for us on the occasion of the anniversary of Roe v Wade, a law passed some 40 million abortions ago:As we mark the 39th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, we must remember that this Supreme Court decision not only protects a … [Read more...]

Obama Admin and HHS vs Catholic Church

obama abortion

There was a lot of pretense in 2008 that Obama -- with his 100% approval rating from NARAL -- should be the choice of "intelligent" Catholics because even if he was wrong on abortion, he was "so good" on everything else -- the poor, the disadvantaged, the promise to turn back the Bush wars, close Gitmo, halt rendition, bring "transparency" and restore our "shredded constitution" -- these were all so compellingly at-one with the church that an Obama presidency would bring about the large … [Read more...]

Tumbling America and the Narrative Thrust UPDATED

America is in the process of tumbling: she has one party interested only in "remaking" America with or without the constitution's guidance; it is a party become so expert at political maneuvering that it no longer believes it actually has to lead, build consensus or compromise -- ever -- and another party that can't manage to stick a post into a hole and call it a goal. The Democrats and Republicans remind me of nothing so much as Jules and Brett in Pulp Fiction -- the Democrats alternately sly … [Read more...]
