Pro-abortion Barack Obama calls for protection of "innocent life?" / Most disagree with Obama's pro-abortion Executive Order / Obama to expand Bush's Faith Based Initiative, but how? / Obama may actually be right about something - Wall Street excess / Stimulus bill money is off limits to religious groups / Stimulating birth control / Christian groups fighting wrong battle with Obama / Babies in a frozen Hell on Earth / Live baby tossed in trash bag / Governor Beasley in Washington to help Iraqi Christians / Christian group kicked out of Sudan
THE FAITH BASED PRESIDENT - is this a joke? President Obama is going to expand the Faith Based outreach started by President Bush - with a few changes - because he is for "separation of church and state." His new Faith Based effort will give funds to religious groups only if they promise to hire people from outside their faith. This means that any Jewish groups accepting the funds will be required to hire Muslims who call for the destruction of Israel. Baptist groups will be forced to hire Mormons, and the Mormons will be forced to hire people who refer to them as a cult. Wow ... Let's all hold hands and sing Kumbaya.
The "PROTECT INNOCENT LIFE" PRESIDENT - Confused? So am I. At the annual National Prayer Breakfast President Obama stunned pro-life religious leaders by saying, "There is no God who condones taking the life of an innocent human being. This much we know." How can he hold this view and also sign an Executive Order giving funds to pro-abortion groups? The logic is simple: Barack Obama does not believe that an unborn baby is a human being. He follows the pro-abortion line that until a baby breathes in air, it has no mother or father; it is just a lump of cells. Read more
OBAMA IS RIGHT ABOUT PAY EXCESSES The Washington Times is the most conservative and pro-business newspaper in the United States and perhaps even the world. Imagine my surprise to see a Washington Times editorial that said President Barack Obama was right to criticize business executives for excessive bonuses. The Times pointed out that while racking up $35 billion in losses for their stockholders, Wall Street executives paid themselves $18.4 billion in bonuses. About half the loss to investors was actually bonus pay. Now that is disgusting, and the Washington Times was right to agree with Barack Obama on this one. Read editorial
BIRTH CONTROL AS STIMULUS - Apparently the Democrat controlled Congress under radical San Francisco leftist Nancy Pelosi believes that having fewer babies will stimulate the economy. Not only are millions of dollars given to pro-abortion groups such as Planned Parenthood, the rules of the funding undermine families. Under the bill, clinics must give birth control pills and devices to underage girls without consulting their parents. The bill also gives funds to the CDC to fight sexually transmitted diseases, since STD's will increase when birth control pills are handed out like candy at schools. The Democrats call these program "economic stimulus."
CHRISTIAN GROUPS DON'T GET IT - Most social conservative groups are being led around by the nose by the GOP, and so are fuming about the pork in the Stimulus bill and ignoring the anti-family rules that are in it. The Stimulus will pass, and social conservative and pro-life groups are wasting their time trying to stop passage. Instead they should be working hard to change language that is damaging to the traditional family and faith based schools such as in the examples noted above.
LIVE BABY TOSSED IN BIO HAZARD BAG - The abortionist was running late to work, and the woman seeking an abortion gave birth to a live baby girl. An employee cut the umbilical cord and tossed the live baby in a trash bag and tied the top. "The baby was just treated as a piece of garbage," said Tom Brejcha, president of The Thomas More Society, the law firm that is also representing the mother who sought the abortion. "People all over the country are just aghast,." he said. Florida authorities are looking into possible criminal charges against the doctor, who was trained in Haiti. Read more

"THIRST NO MORE" KICKED OUT OF SUDAN - A group providing new water wells has been thrown out of Sudan's Darfur region after officials found Arabic-language Bibles in their office. Officials said they had decided to expel the Texas-based group "for its violation to the Voluntary Work Act. A government spokesman said Thirst No More was supposed to be in the war-torn region supplying drinking water and "failed to provide justification" for its ownership of about 3,400 Bibles. Apparently the Sudanese dictatorship has the same view of separation of church and state as President Barack Obama. Read more
