A Diploma is just a participation award now.

I was talking to my sister about her homeschooling her son. She said public schools besides eliminating cursive writing have done away with anything practical like shop class, home-ec, most physical education, etc. Mostly gearing kids for college credits in HS.

If death occurs when the heart stops, then life at least begins when the heart beats. A baby's heartbeat is detectable between 6-8 weeks after the egg is fertilized.

I don't disagree. I was merely saying 24 weeks is the earliest they could possibly survive outside the womb. I don't believe life begins at viability. One can make the argument elderly in homes can be terminated for not being viable on their own too.

I remember Obama at a televised town hall, telling someone Grandma can be given a pain pill (instead of rationed health care).

Perhaps I should have named this thread Culture Cliff. The other day I was thinking of how quickly everything is disintegrating (legal pot, infanticide, etc.) and I had a picture of lemmings rushing towards the cliff. Some were being carried along in helplessness and others were doing all the pushing. Either way, they were all doomed.

And right at the cliff's edge stood a repurposed lighthouse, shining in the opposite direction and warning them of danger. That's really the choice. Are we going to be lemmings or lighthouses?

Unplanned is a Christian-produced pro-life movie coming out soon. And just like Mel Gibson's Passion of the Christ, Hollywood gave it an "R" rating, in an attempt to suppress the audience turnout.

Unplanned is having a hard time getting media outlets to run ads. Even K-LOVE said no, saying they don't do politics. SHAME ON THEM! In actuality, they don't want to risk losing the tens of millions of dollars they get every year from their abortion-loving listeners. (P.S. K-LOVE ran ads for Gibson's movie.)

I quit listening to K-LOVE a few years ago, tired of their music monopoly and sugar-coated pabulum. And I remember their radio hosts gushing the day after Obama was elected.

I'd much rather focus on tomorrow, before it gets here, but the endless brushfires at school keep me busy. I try to stay positive. I know that if my Christian school were right next door to one of the public schools, anyone could tell the differences between the two. That's something to praise.

But if my school was right next door to MY high school (back in '73), I couldn't tell the difference. And I'm not sure if that's because more public school kids lived out their faith back then, or if my Christian school kids today have been secularly cultured.

I am shocked & saddened that K-Love would not advertise a pro-life movie. what wow

I guess I shouldn't be surprised. I too gave up listening to them years ago because of their fawning over Rick Warren, Joel Osteen & other Prosperity Gospel preachers thumbs down

Yesterday we had an unwanted repeat visit at our school from an unknown young man. He wanted in, he wanted to go to the playground, etc. As he was escorted out, he got squirrely and lashed out with his feet, and also told the escort that he was a dead man.

We were already on the phone with the sheriff's dispatcher, who sent a quick car. After a short foot chase he was taken into custody. Mental issues, drugs? We've got a lot of follow-up to do. We lease the educational wing from a church, whose pastor has previously nixed a couple of our desired security upgrades. Maybe not so much now.

At mid-week church, we just finished a 5-month series titled Today. Three of us had taken turns presenting today's issues from a biblical perspective. Pastor had the last night, kind of wrapping it up and asking "What kind of a small group do we do next fall?"

I didn't even hesitate as the word came out..."Tomorrow." The possibilities seem endless.

Eight GOP representatives joined the 100% of Dem reps who voted for the horribly-named Equality Act. Sexual behavior and the gender psyche-damaged are now protected, nay, given elevated rights over others. Watch the slow decline of women's sports as tens of thousands of females lose scholarship opportunities. Watch as millions of women are denied safe public spaces (male-free bathrooms, showers and the like). Watch as thousands of lawsuits are filed against churches and religious non-profits for declining to hire sexually unbalanced employees. Unless...

...this Act never sees the light of day in the US Senate, or a sane president vetoes it. A couple of months ago, Senator Pelosi said that "Religion is not an excuse" to disobey her Act.

To those who worship at the Church Of Nancy (CON), God is not pleased.

Netflix announced today that they're going to "re-think" their entertainment investments in those southern states whose fetal heartbeat laws aren't overturned.

Goodbye, Netflix. I'll take my money elsewhere.

Boy is that ever right. It seems like the world is upside down.
If you do even a tiny bit of research on Margaret Sanger (founder of Planned Parenthood) You will find she was a nasty racist who pushed a abortion as a means of reducing the population of what she called " undesirables" (minorities) Which is of course why 99% of planned parenthood offices are in minority neighborhoods. It was a stunning success (for her vision). today 40% of all black babies are aborted.

Yet, this week we see black men & women like Al Sharpton & Stacey Abrams racing out to protest the new anti abortion laws being enacted . In other words, to defend the killing of black babies.

Do they even know what they are doing? scratch

The Rev Jesse Jackson was firmly pro-life.......until he ran as a Democrat nominee for president. Did he later repent? Will he enter heaven or will there be weeping and gnashing of teeth?

A thirst for personal power is corrosive to the core. As a related example, very, very bad news out last week on Dr. Martin Luther King.

There is nothing new under the sun. Our same problems existed almost 2400 years ago...

Quoting from Plato's The Republic, "(the tyrants, who) never taste any stable or pure pleasure. Instead, they always look down at the ground like cattle, and, with their heads bent over the dinner table, they feed, fatten, and fornicate."

For those who believe in nothing that isn't naturalistic, the world is without meaning, purpose or timeless values. It eventually becomes an individual's desperate search for experiences that give temporary pleasure. And to get the same "thrill" each time, they have to up the dosage.

But there's always a reckoning, in this world or the next. If you're a billionaire like Epstein, the bell tolls now. Will it toll for others, like William Jefferson Clinton? On Saturday, a member of the Democrat National Committee said that some of our "faves" will likely go down.

Why in the world do politicians refuse to learn from their own mistakes, or at least from others'? Livability in big cities is getting worse and worse with increasing taxes, crime and crumbling infrastructure. There was a recent special by an Emerald City TV station titled "Is Seattle Dying?" The short answer: yes.

And Oakland, CA is continuing their slide as well, close to exiting the pan into the fire. Their city council members are passing new protections for "curbside communities", AKA homeless people in tents on city sidewalks. They aren't doing any of their citizens any favors.

A 1931 quote from T.S. Elliot, an American poet who moved to England and became a Brit citizen....

"The world is trying the experiment of attempting to form a civilized but non-Christian mentality. The experiment will fail; but we must be very patient in awaiting its collapse; meanwhile redeeming the time; so that the Faith may be preserved alive through the dark ages before us; to renew and rebuild civilization, and save the world from suicide."

I wonder how long he thought we would have to be patient? 88 years is a long time. Even though there's already a ton of evidence showing the experiment to be a failure, the other side would rather keep mixing chemicals until the lab blows up?

Just back from a family wedding a couple of states over. My sister-in-law is Pentecostal, married to the son of a Baptist preacher. But they raised their boys in the big city, so.....

...one son goes to a gay lifestyle-affirming church (and his wife is really militant), and the just-married son made me grit my teeth. He had asked what my sons (his cousins) are up to. When I mentioned that one son was a police officer, his hand went to his mouth and he exclaimed, "He's a pig?!" His new bride's reaction was different, perhaps because she noticed my expression. Her hand immediately touched his arm, stopping him from continuing.

Guys, do NOT live in big cities if you can help it. Ditto on letting your kids live there. City culture changes people for the worse.

When I was growing up I had two Firebirds with N50 tires and craiger wheels on it. Between 16 and 18 I was pulled over like 15 times by the Police in Springfield. When I asked why I was pulled over they said I was speeding....GRIN! I asked really I thought I was driving the speed limit how fast was I going. "They most often replied it doesn't matter I was speeding" After about 10 of those stops I didn't have much good to say about our police force as they were a bother and a nuisance to me.

Now having said that after many years of knowing my rights are protected by these fine folks and they are no longer profiling me and I haven't been pulled over in 40 years they are a great blessing to have around. Ok. I just remembered I got pulled over 5 years ago for expired tags. Cost me 100 bucks in fines but that was our fault (wife takes care of vehicles) I just drive them. HA!

So often times when the traffic is backed up and I have spent another 20 minutes of my day waiting on traffic to clear only to come upon a lone squad car by the side of the road with lights on filling out his traffic report or a fire truck and a few guys standing around I wished they were a little more open to the thought of my presence here is causing a lot of people problems much more than I am resolving. Yet that is life on the road. I block lanes and do work on the sides of streets and highways daily. Me being there blocking traffic is as fast as I can to get it done and get out of the way. Much safer for all concerned for me to get out of the traffic zones and do my computer time not affecting the traffic going by. They could learn by doing this. It's worked for me 40 years. Some things can be avoided other things can't.

One of our towns up north was known for their speed traps until they stopped the wrong congress person who made it a point to look into the situation and they fined the town leadership and stopped it from happening. Quotas are something that make great people into bad names. I have a lot of respect for the Police and leaders in authority.

They deserve our respect. Even when they are wrong.

I think back on my lifetime of working with knucklehead sailors and overly-rambunctious boys. It doesn't even come close to being an honorable mention compared to the problems that police officers are continually faced with. Earlier this year, my son stopped a murderer who had taken a hostage. It's a crappy world we made out there, and it won't get better until He returns.

I was praying early this morning, when a phrase came out of nowhere... conscientious objector. Going back to WW1 and probably before, men could opt out of mandatory military service "on the grounds of freedom of thought, conscience or religion." It was serious business and the burden of proof was on the applicant. And by and large, people who were granted CO status were left alone.

In this day and age, the LGBT behemoth (aided by powerful institutions) has made it unfashionable, politically incorrect, illegal in many cases, and economically dangerous for anyone to resist them. Everyone is required to salute the rainbow flag. Most people, even if they disagree, don't push back. It's just too dangerous not to serve in the LGBT army.

It's time to give ourselves some legal protection by claiming CO status.
