Here I sin boldly by asking the Democratic Party to (1) maintain support for a woman’s access to health care and protect her reproductive rights; (2) add a public concern for the well-being and moral protectability of the unborn child; and (3) encourage state or even federal legislatures to pass creative legislation that that addresses both. Read more

Karen Lebacqz's Christian viewpoint on abortion is illuminating. Stop trying to find the point in a pregnancy when a fetus becomes human, she says. Instead, accept the fact that some women face a crisis and the church community should provide compassionate support. That is the central issue. Read more

Anti-Christian Nationalist Progressives seem to aim their invectives at American Christian Nationalism, but they actually strike pain into evangelical Christians. Even if our evangelical friends strongly denounce Christian nationalism, they still get scapegoated by the progressives. All this is due to anxiety stirred up by Republican Party politics.

After a Mara Lago meeting with Tik Tok investor Jeff Yass, Mr. Trump endorsed Tik Tok. How much did this cost Mr. Yass? How much will "Get Your Trump Bible!" cost God? A miracle? Read more

Even though Holy Week is just beginning, it's time to think about Easter resurrection and what it means. Read more

Here’s my question: when does the dignity of the unborn child become morally protectable, thereby proscribing abortion? Paul Lange, who has studied this matter both scientifically and theologically, says 20 to 24 weeks after conception. This stage marks the point where the fetus' cerebrum develops with a nervious system that feels. Perhaps this is a good point to draw the line. Elective abortion with a doctor's consultation should be permitted prior to the 24th week, but prohibited thereafter except to protect the mother's health. Such a public policy shows respect to both the woman and the unborn child. Read more
