Romans 1:22: For, professing themselves to be wise, they became fools. (And in public, no less!)

…I would put the life of a mother over the life of a fetus every single time — even if I still need to acknowledge my conviction that the fetus is indeed a life. A life worth sacrificing.

Editor’s note: For, professing themselves to be wise, they became fools. And they changed the glory of the incorruptible God into the likeness of the image of a corruptible man and of birds, and of four footed beasts and of creeping things. Wherefore, God gave them up to the desires of their heart, unto uncleanness: to dishonor their own bodies among themselves. Who changed the truth of God into a lie and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen. For this cause, God delivered them up to shameful affections. For their women have changed the natural use into that use which is against nature. And, in like manner, the men also, leaving the natural use of the women, have burned in their lusts, one towards another: men with men, working that which is filthy and receiving in themselves the recompense which was due to their error. And as they liked not to have God in their knowledge, God delivered them up to a reprobate sense, to do those things which are not moral. Being filled with all iniquity, malice, fornication, avarice, wickedness: full of envy, murder, contention, deceit, malignity: whisperers, Detractors, hateful to God, contumelious, proud, haughty, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, Foolish, dissolute: without affection, without fidelity, without mercy. Who, having known the justice of God, did not understand that they who do such things, are worthy of death: and not only they that do them, but they also that consent to them that do them. (Romans 1:22-32)

Seen on the web: “The danger to America is not Barack Obama, but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the presidency.”

“The danger to America is not Barack Obama, but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the presidency.

It will be easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to an electorate willing to have such a man for their president.

The problem is much deeper and far more serious than Mr. Obama, who is a mere symptom of what ails us.

Blaming the prince of the fools should not blind anyone to the vast confederacy of fools that made him their prince. The republic can survive a Barack Obama. It is less likely to survive a multitude of fools such as those who made him their president.”

How McDonald’s Made Me Lose My Appetite

How McDonald’s Made Me Lose My Appetite

by Doug Lawrence

Ronald McDonald and I go way, way back.

The first Ronald McDonald operated out of Chicago, back in the late 60’s and early 70’s. He had a young son who was interested in SCUBA diving, and I happened to be one of the few certified SCUBA instructors who could accomodate his unusual work schedule.

Not only did I train Ronald McDonald’s son, but I operated the only dive store where Ronald made regular appearances in full makeup and costume. Nobody thought much of it at the time, either.

Now, some 40 years later, Ronald has “turned” on me. He’s gone gay. He has become an advocate for gay rights and gay marriage, and he claims that anyone who doesn’t agree with him is a “hater”. McDonald’s corporate agrees … even to the point of writing big checks to pro-gay organizations.

How goofy is that?

I feel like Ronald has violated my trust, that of my family and friends, and the trust of all those who believed that McDonald’s actually stood for something wholesome.

I can’t help wondering if Ray Kroc, the founder of McDonald’s, was always secretly gay, too.

The bottom line is this: I used to eat at McDonald’s at least four or five times per week … often more. But now, every time I see those golden arches, I just want to puke. A lot of my friends feel the same way.

That’s not a good thing for a fast food outlet!

So, it’s bye-bye, Ronald. The food wasn’t all that great anyway, I don’t make a habit of dining with liars, traitors, or fools, and there’s plenty of other places to grab a burger.

Ronald, I’m sure all those big, gay families will make up for the lost business … so you needn’t worry … but you might want to begin looking for a new line of work … just in case.

And wipe that silly grin off your face!
