Wireless birth control is no fantasy

Bill Gates & Birth Control 2

“Technology Review says the wireless implant, if approved for safety and efficacy, could make it possible for a woman to turn her birth control on and off at will by using a remote-control device. The implanted chip contains the chemical levonorgestrel—the same ingredient in Plan B One-Step (emergency contraception). So a woman would literally be able to abort children by remote control. …”

Texas Gov. Rick Perry plans to deploy up to 1,000 guardsmen to border

Illegals-3-150x119

“As governor, Perry is commander in chief of Texas military forces unless those forces have already been mobilized by the White House. But if Perry deploys National Guard troops it is up to Texas to pay for them, while an order from Obama would mean Washington picks up the tab. …

Since October, more than 57,000 unaccompanied children and teenagers have entered the U.S. illegally — more than double compared to the same period a year earlier. Most have been from Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador, where rampant gang violence and intense poverty have driven tens of thousands of people outside their borders …”

Islamic State Warns Christians: Convert, pay, or die

Christian persecution in Mosul

“Christians in Mosul, the second largest city in Iraq, were sent a message by the Islamic State (IS): convert to Islam, pay the jizya or leave. … We offer them three choices: Islam; the dhimma contract – involving payment of Jizya; if they refuse this they will have nothing but the sword. …”

Israel Uses Rockets To Protect People, Hamas Uses People To Protect Their Rockets

Rockets by Israel & Hamas

“I think it was Netanyahu who summed it up the other day when he stated “There will be no piece until the Palestinians love their children more than they hate Israel”. I hope Israel does the right thing, take back Gaza, a needed buffer zone to protect themselves. …”

The God of the Gaps Argument Explained

2014 March for Life

In spite of the hundreds of thousands participants in the 2014 March for Life, the media provided very little coverage of the event.

Child of Rape: “You Can’t Let Your Circumstances Define Your Life”

Valerie  Gato

“The issue of pregnancy as a result of rape received recent attention from an unlikely source with the 2014 Miss USA Pageant. Valerie Gatto, Miss Pennsylvania, opened up about her life story during the pageant, revealing that she was a product of rape. At a very young age, Gatto’s mother told her, “[S]omething bad happened to me. A very bad man hurt me, but God gave me you.” Gatto’s mother was just nineteen years old when a man attacked her on a busy street, pulled her behind a building, and raped her at knifepoint. Her attacker planned to murder her once he had raped her. The lights of a passing car became her saving grace when they startled the man, allowing her to escape. …”

SDA “Guidelines on Stealing,” by Nic Samojluk

Stealing 2

Given the fact that we have “Guidelines on Abortion” since 1992, which were designed to redefine God’s prohibition against killing, I believe that it is probably a good time for us to adopt another document aimed at redefining the prohibition against stealing as well.

My reasoning is as follows: Stealing represents a lesser offense than killing. If someone steals my car I can always buy another one. The victim of abortion does not have such an option. The act is final and irreversible.

The same can be argued regarding rape and sexual abuse of little children. Such actions harm the victims a great deal, but they do not deprive the victims of their life. They can, with God’s grace, survive the terrible ordeal and quite often lead an almost normal life following the violation of their rights.

If we redefine stealing, and perhaps rape as well, we will outdo what Rome did; Rome altered only one of God’s commandments!

Adventist Church Launches Breathe-Free 2, a New Stop-Smoking Program

breathfree

““It is my goal that every one of our churches will reach the point where they have smoking sections outside the church,” he said. “People should be able to feel comfortable coming to a Seventh-day Adventist Church as a smoker.

“We’re not wanting them to be a smoker,” he said. “But we should accept them right where they’re at, and be ready to work with them so that they can change and have a healthier lifestyle.”

The church that Handysides attends at Loma Linda University does not have a designated smoking area. Indeed, the entire campus is smoke-free. …”

My question: We Adventists have been helping smokers quit this unhealthful habit because quitting will prolong smoker’s life by five years, but we have no interest in outlawing abortion which would extend the victims’ life by 80 or 90 years!  Does this make logical or moral sense?  In fact the SDA church recently publicly declared its neutrality on abortion in the country of Kenya.

Birth a Panda and the World Rejoices, Birth a Baby and Population Controllers Go Nuts

Panda

“Progressives seem to assume that animals have a natural right to have babies, but that poor women don’t. So they view the implantation of a chemical “bomb” armed with a computer chip into the bodies of impoverished women as an advance.
Or as Ann Farmer cogently put it, “Wealthy people in particular don’t want poor women to have babies and so tend to treat them worse than animals.”And pandas are inseminated while humans are neutered. …”

I Now Pronounce You Spouse And Spouse

Biology & same sex legislation

“In keeping with its reputation of pioneering social madness, California has now passed legislation which eliminates the words “husband” and “wife” from state laws. … Back in America, on January 7, 2011, the State Department announced that “The words ‘mother’ and ‘father’ will be removed from U.S. passport applications and replaced with gender neutral terminology, …”
