The hard work is not always apparent in how it is paying off. In fact, the pro-life advocacy may feel as though it is adding years to your life. New wrinkles and gray hairs seem to be popping up in places they were not before.
Sounds as though you are experiencing pro-life advocacy burnout. Let’s discuss a few remedies for this.[click to continue...]
Jesus Christ, of all people, connected the end of the world to a cataclysmic event of centuries past. He said His Second coming at the end of the world in judgment would be at a time much like the time of the Flood.
“As were the days of Noah, so will be the coming of the Son of man.
For as in those days before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day when Noah entered the ark,
and they did not know until the flood came and swept them all away, so will be the coming of the Son of man,” Jesus proclaimed (Matthew 24:37).

Ancient Chinese women would drink mercury to try to prevent becoming pregnant. Little did they know back then, in all likelihood, the brain and kidney damage they were causing!
We all know the claims.
The ozone is supposedly eroding and we will soon all melt away.
The world is overpopulated and so we will suffer a worldwide food shortage. Millions of people will starve to death.
The world’s bee population or the possible extinction of endangered species are supposedly more important than the lives of human beings.
I figured I would comprise a list of four reasons pro-lifers call into question these major environmental concerns.[click to continue...]
Blake Daft, the Alcoholic Pride Parade co-founder had this to say:
“What a victory for progress, huh? I mean, at last, we drunkards don’t have to be forced to live in the shadows. Many of us didn’t choose our lifestyle, okay? And for the local government to sponsor a day to celebrate our desire to have a good time, that’s sensational!”[click to continue...]
Usually when you think of an example of ageism, you think of discrimination against the elderly, right?
Well, so did I. Until I attended a talk recently by pro-life speaker, Stephanie Gray.[click to continue...]
