Our Votes are an Extension of Our Faith

Making the case for Christian engagement in the culture isn’t a difficult thing to do. Christ’s lordship is over all areas of life and that’s abundantly clear in his word. Our Creator is not to be compartmentalized.

Today is November 5th, meaning tomorrow is the last day to vote in the different races for the various legislative, executive, and judicial offices. When we do so, we are not stepping out of the realm of spiritual things and into the supposed realm of secular things.

Evil Works Brought to Light

“Everyone who does wicked things hates the light and does not come to the light, lest his works should be exposed.” -John 3:20

There are evils which are so indisputably evil that the perpetrator’s only strategy is to hide the truth in the hopes their actions won’t be brought to light. Such is the reason for the following picture tweeted out by Bucks County Courier-Journal writer JD Mullane in 2013.

The media’s absence at the trial of Kermit Gosnell is not difficult to explain.

The Murder School

We’ve written before about the fraudulent nature of the “pro-choice” label. If you weren’t convinced then, you should be after reading this. The nation’s premier abortionist training school, the University of California San Francisco, is coaching future abortionists to convince conflicted mothers into killing their babies.

The UCSF Bixby Center for Global Reproductive Health is a “medical school” through which the abortionist training program, known as the Kenneth J Ryan Residency Training Program,

Planned Parenthood Wins Suit Allowing the Targeting of the Disabled for Abortion

When news surfaced of the near-total eradication of people with Down’s Syndrome from the Icelandic population, decent people of every persuasion were repulsed.

Most Americans, though, are probably unaware that in March 2016 Planned Parenthood sued to allow the same practice here in America. On Monday, Planned Parenthood won the case as federal judge and Obama appointee Tanya Pratt struck down an Indiana bill which would have prevented the targeting of disabled preborn babies for abortion as well as the practice of sex-selective abortion.

American Christians Shouldn’t Abdicate Their Civic Duty

Both within the church and outside of it, the civic role of Christians is widely debated. Many American churches, majority-white churches in particular, have determined that anything which could conceivably interface with politics is off-limits. This belief often manifests itself in total avoidance of any topic that might intersect with the political.

Hold onto that thought for a moment as you read this excerpt from an article written by University of Chicago biology professor and evolutionary theorist Jerry Coyne:

“The reason we don’t allow euthanasia of newborns is because humans are seen as special,

Yakima School District Principal Instructs Teachers to Lie to Parents

A Yakima teacher is blowing the whistle on school administrators who he claims instructed him and his coworkers to “engage in active deception towards parents with regard to trans-gendered students.”

In a Facebook post on August 28, Jeremy Wuitschick, a teacher at Lewis and Clark Middle School in Yakima, WA, gave details about an interaction with the principal at a staff meeting:

YSD [Yakima School District] PARENTS PLEASE SHARE: Today our principal instructed teachers to engage in ACTIVE DECEPTION TOWARDS PARENTS with regard to trans-gendered students that ask to be called a name of a different gender.

California Senate Passes Bill Criminalizing “Misgendering”

California State Senator Scott Weiner, feeling empowered by the lack of a conservative movement in his state, is attempting to criminalize traditional values. His “Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Long-Term Care Facility Resident’s Bill of Rights,” which was recently passed by the state senate, would make it a crime to “misgender” nursing home residents by referring to them according to their birth names and the sex inferred by their chromosomes.

Generally, traditionalists reject the “progressive” premise that society should treat men as if they were women so long as they claim to be women and vice versa.

Seattle Storm Will Hold “Planned Parenthood Night” Tomorrow

When the Seattle Storm take on the Connecticut Sun tomorrow night at Key Arena, basketball won’t be the only activity on the agenda.

The Storm have declared tomorrow’s game “Planned Parenthood Night.” A rally in support of the notorious abortion corporation will be held before the game, and the basketball team will also donate $5 from the sale of each ticket and the proceeds from a silent auction to Planned Parenthood.

Auction items will include autographed and game-worn gear.

Spokane Public Schools Consider Using Planned Parenthood Sex-Ed Curriculum

Spokane Public Schools district board members were scheduled to vote on a proposal last month that would implement a sexual education curriculum developed by Planned Parenthood. Although the vote was postponed following significant community backlash, the curriculum may still be adopted when the school board meets again this fall.

The “Get Real” curriculum emphasizes sexuality from a perspective of gender fluidity. It also represents a significant conflict of interest.

“The organization who makes this material stands to benefit when young people are sexually active and when they need abortions,” John Repsold,

Planned Parenthood and the Media Should Stop Lying About CMP Videos

Come mid-July, it will have been two years since the Center for Medical Progress (CMP) released their first in a series of undercover videos depicting conversations with high-level abortion industry executives. By giving the nation a peek behind the closed doors of the abortion industry, David Daleiden and his team at CMP have shifted the public discussion about abortion. Their undercover footage reached millions of people, many of whom were open to being swayed on the abortion issue,
