Is It All Relative?

"I'll believe anything," said a friend of mine, and she meant it. She believes equally in paganism, Christianity, Buddhism, and Judaism.  She believes angels will protect her children when they're unsupervised, that the universe will give you wealth if you "put your desire out there," and that abortion is acceptable. I haven't asked her if she believes in the horrible pain of a baby being ripped apart in the womb or if she believes in demons.

I bring this friend up because her belief epitomizes the attitude of so many people. G.K. Chesterton expressed it this way:

"When people stop believing in God, they don't believe in nothing--they believe in anything."

How can it be logical to believe that all truths are equal? That worshipping nature is equal to worshipping Christ? Either Christ is God or he isn't. It can't be both.

What about ethics? Aren't there some things that are simply, objectively, morally, wrong such as murder, theft, and rape?

And objectively morally right, like feeding the poor, and protecting the vulnerable?

We might quibble about details, but I hope we would agree on the basic premises.

Mass Shootings More Common in Gun Controlled States/Cities

Have you ever noticed that mass shootings are not taking place mainly or always in those cities or states who have very unrestrictive gun laws?

That's a little fact that the Obamedia doesn't want you to know. Even in that shooting on a military base the people there were not permitted to carry weapons unless they were on armed MP duty.

Well, it's only common sense. If law abiding citizens don't have the right to carry a gun for their own protection, then it's the violent criminals who get protected.

In one of the earlier school shootings, the news reports said, again and again, that a heroic teacher stopped the shooter before he could kill more. Only years later did I learn that what the teacher did was run out to his car in the parking lot and get his gun. I'd imagine that in a school parking lot today, no one would dare to have a gun locked in their car. And if they somehow did and stopped a shooting in its tracks with that gun, they would probably go to jail over it.

Once in Minnesota there was a school shooting at an Indian reservation school. In the pictures from the scene there was a prominent sign saying 'gun-free school zone'.

I longed to go back in time to replace that sign with one that said 'Warning: all staff members at this school are required to be armed. Teachers are required to carry two guns. Any act of violence you attempt to commit on these school grounds is at your own risk.' I would put up this sign even if the laws did not in fact require the teachers to be armed--- if, in fact, they were forbidden from having weapons.

The citizenry of a free country needs to be two things--- moral, and free to bear arms. Moral went out the window in schools when prayer and any mention of Christianity were forbidden--- in spite of the fact that Christian moral teaching was the original purpose of American public schools.

The freedom to bear arms is rapidly vanishing, and Obama has just promised more anti-gun laws. And when a stalked divorced woman is shot to death because she was not permitted to carry a gun to defend herself, the gun controllers will say 'see, we need more gun control'.

No. We need more responsible, moral people bearing arms, just like the school shooting teacher with the gun in his car. Every day an unknown number of lives are saved because somebody responsible had a gun.

But don't wait for the Obamedia to tell you about it.

Fetal Pain

I'm please to join the Inglourious Ranterz blog team. Shall I launch into a blog post or introduce myself first? Maybe I can manage both at once.

First off, I know what it's like to be young, unmarried, and unexpectedly pregnant. That was me about twenty-two years ago. My closest friend encouraged me to have an abortion. I didn't. I wasn't religious at that time; I just didn't want to end my baby's life, though I only had a vague notion about what an abortion really entailed and had no idea what a violent procedure it is. It violates the woman and literally tears apart her child.

I share my experience in order to explain why I don't condemn young women who have abortions. Most of them are scared, panicky, and unclear about fetal development and abortion. But that doesn't change the fact that abortion is intrinsically evil.
It's a procedure that intentionally ends the life of an innocent human being. And by 20 weeks, or possibly as early as 8 weeks, the unborn baby can feel pain. Fetal pain is something the pro-abortion people don't want to talk about, which is why they try so hard to knock down any legislation which would require pain medication for unborn babies about to be aborted.
But pain or no pain, it's wrong to kill an innocent human being.

Nobama 2016: or, what's Obama campaigning for now?

You may have heard some news about how Obama, instead of dealing with the 'fiscal cliff' issue, is off campaigning again. But isn't it a bit early to be spending taxpayer money on his next re-election campaign?

Some people may point out that according to the constitution he's not eligible to run again. Well, according to the constitution he's ALSO not allowed to tell religious organizations how to practice their religions, and he's doing that through his abortifacient/contraceptive mandate.

Obama also has a habit of using bureaucratic rules, which he can dictate, to get measures into force that he cannot get through Congress.

What's a conservative to do? Get the word out! The mainstream socialist media isn't going to cover any items critical of Obama until they find a new socialist Chosen One. So we of the Underground Media have got to spread the word through blogs, Facebook and the like as well as in person.

Don't yet have a conservative/prolife/anti-Obama blog? Start one! Post a couple of stories a week. You may not get many readers. But if your blog is one of the 200 blogs that shared a post from an up-and-coming conservative blog, by some mystical internet means that makes that conservative blog you shared from stronger, and its stories will be more likely to rise to the top in search engine results.

I call upon all bloggers and potential bloggers to share in our Nobama 2016 campaign. Start up a political blog if you don't already have one. Do it yourself or with friends. Add a link to Inglourious Ranterz, or to our Nobama 2016 page (soon to be added). And then, share the link to that blog in a comment below. We will visit your blog and add it to our new Nobama 2016 blogroll (unless it's full of cusses, liberalism or nekkid ladies).

Uncle Sam Needs YOU--- to blog for prolife and conservative values.

Election results get you down? Don't despair! There is something you can do about it right now--- start a conservative/prolife blog. If you are able to write Facebook status updates and share stories, you have the basic skills you need to blog. It's not that difficult. Maybe your blog will never be a top conservative blog or have many readers. It doesn't matter. The more people we have writing conservative/prolife blog posts, the more chance there is for some to get noticed. And the more links you make, on your blog, to other conservative/prolife blog posts, the more those blog posts rise to the top of the blogosphere. Don't decide it's futile. Ever since I was in school, many, many years ago, the schools and the media have been pushing a left wing worldview and censoring/demonizing the other side of things. Yet in spite of that, about 1/2 of Americans are prolife. There are many young people active in prolife/conservative circles. If the left can't do better than that with the schools and the media in their hands, they are utter failures. And homeschooling and the new media mean that they can't count on continuing to have the monolithic influence they've had in the past. They are doomed on that count alone. And that's not even taking into account the fact that our side is having babies while their side is having abortions and sterilizations. It's a great time to be a conservative prolife person in America. --- Liberty Minnie

Prague Daily Monitor: Prolife March in Prague, Czech Republic

Good news from the Prague Daily Monitor:

About a thousand people marched through Prague centre to protest against abortions, some carrying white wooden crosses, others photos of newborn babies, pictures of saints or banners saying "Gynaecologists, Don't Be Contract Killers" and "Tolerance From Conception" Saturday.

"We don't agree with abortion. This is why we are here," a woman participating in the march said.

The 11th March for Life was preceded by a mass for unborn children celebrated by Prague Archbishop Dominik Duka at St Giles Church in the city's historical centre.

These small European countries with small birth-rates are threatened with extinction by the culture-of-death and birth-control-mentality. Maybe all those folks keen on saving the whales should consider a campaign to save the Czechs!

There are two good films, Demographic Winter and Demographic Bomb, which explain some of the consequences to society of a shrinking population base. They are very thoughtful films, well worth viewing.

Jill Stanek: Obama Featured on 'Black Genocide' Billboard.

It couldn't happen to a nicer Hitler. From Jill Stanek's blog:
Tomorrow, March 29, over 30 pro-life billboards will be unveiled on Chicago’s south side, where residents are predominantly black.

The billboards will feature a graphic of President Barack Obama and state, “Every 21 minutes, our next possible leader is aborted.” The billboard will direct interested parties to, where African-American pro-life leader Alveda King is prominently featured.

The Chicago billboards are sponsored by Life Always, the pro-life organization behind the recent NYC billboard that created an uproar. It stated, “The most dangerous place for an African-American baby is in the womb,” an accurate statement since 60% of all preborn black babies in the NYC area are killed by abortion.

Read the rest at Jill Stanek's blog.

My take: when folks are marching your people into the Nazi-style killing centers, isn't it OK to scream bloody murder?

Southern-Fried Catholicism: Have You Seen the Abortion Van?

I must admit that when I first saw the above blog title I thought abortions were being performed in the van--- kind of like an ice-cream truck. And like an ice cream truck it could be playing a song over loudspeakers; 'Another One Bites the Dust' perhaps.

Here is the real story from Southern-Fried Catholicism:

I was talking to a young lady yesterday and she asked me just before I hung up, "Oh, hey, have you seen the abortion van?"
"The what?"
"The abortion van. There's a van riding around town that has pictures of what abortions are really like. I'm all for that dude. Good for him."
"Yeah...yeah. I thought you meant...something else. It's graphic alright but y'know, it takes what it takes. I saw those same pictures and the movie "The Silent Scream" when I was a kid. Can't forget it."

The "abortion van" is in town and has been on campus promoting the "Personhood Amendment". The organizer is nationally known anti-abortion activist, Dan Holman

See more, including pictures, at Southern-Fried Catholicism.

The MSM has been very successful in keeping the prolife message out of its 'fair and balanced' news coverage. Prolife is called 'the social issues' now. You know, dismembering a child through abortion and using the wrong fork at a fancy dinner, both social issues?

Question is, would you be willing to do what Dan Holman is doing,

Obama (hearts) infanticide!

Well, of course Obama (hearts) infanticide, he admits to being a major supporter of Planned Parenthood, the nation's largest prenatal infanticide center chain.

But Haley Barbour had the bad grace to point out the Obama/infanticide link in public. From Jill Stanek's blog:

Barbour grew emotional when he touted Mississippi’s top rating from Americans United for Life and spotlighted a law enacted early in his 1st term as governor that required doctors to do everything possible to save a fetus that survives an unsuccessful abortion.

A bit choked up, Barbour said he never would have predicted at the time how important the law would be to a future White House campaign.

“Barack Obama fought such a law, and defeated such a law, in Illinois,” Barbour said.

“After an abortion in Chicago,” he said, pausing to collect himself, “the medical personnel are not able to save the life of a child. To me that’s inexplicable. And we changed the law in MS so that could never happen in our state.”

Operation Counterstrike: Ireland Syndrome

Operation Counterstrike (Theodore Shulman) writes:
Just as Irish women routinely travel to England to get abortions, Polish women, unsurprisingly, are travelling to Germany to get abortions.

What Theo doesn't mention: a majority in Poland and Ireland must favor current laws or they would change, and abortion laws in Germany are more restrictive than those in the US.

The story to which Theo links tells of a Polish woman seeking an abortion accompanied by her baby-daddy, a Catholic priest. Of course the abusive priest wants Poland's laws to change to make it easier for him to cover up his abusive actions.

Prochoice Activist 'Operation Counterstrike' Arrested

Operation Counterstrike, AKA Theodore Shulman, was arrested Feb 24 for making threats against prolife activists, according to the Christian Newswire.

I first became aware of Theo while visiting the blog of Fr. Frank Pavone, who has a prolife television show on EWTN, the Catholic network. Theo was making off-the-wall hostile comments, and at one point posted a link there to his brand-new blog, Operation Counterstrike.

This blog was inspired by the event of the murder of abortionist Dr. Tiller by a killer who was initially assumed to have connections with the prolife movement (he didn't). Theo's slogan for his new blog was 'Prolife is Murder' and he habitually referred to all prolife activists as 'terrorists'.

Although appalled and a little scared by some of the things Theo said, I became a 'fan' and a regular reader of his blog, and commented on it from time to time. I wanted to let him know that even though I disagreed with him, I didn't hate him or wish him ill.

According to the news story, Theodore Shulman is accused of making threats against certain prolife leaders including Jill Stanek. I'm afraid that after reading Theo's blog, I do believe it's possible he did what he's accused of (although legally he is PRESUMED INNOCENT until found guilty.)

I don't believe it's right to make threats, even if it's just on the internet, on a little-read blog. But I believe Theo's ranty blog was mostly just him expressing his freedom of speech, and I hope that other angry pro-abortion folk will continue to fight for their beliefs on their blogs just as I fight for mine.

To stay out of trouble, however, ALL bloggers need to avoid making actual threats, revealing personal addresses of opponents on their blog (as Theo did) and other forms of behavior that cause us to cross the line from being nice wholesome Ranterz into criminal behavior.

Mommy Aborted Me and All I Got was This Lousy T-Shirt....

NARAL Prochoice America is peddling T-shirts! This is what their e-commerce site says:

NARAL Pro-Choice America's official t-shirts for the April 7 Pro-Choice Lobby Day in Washington, D.C. are here. By buying one or both of these t-shirts, you'll do more than just stand up for a woman's right to choose. In fact, your purchase will make it possible for thousands of pro-choice Americans to flood Capitol Hill and visit face-to-face with their members of Congress.

Add your name to the list of other pro-choice Americans making a strong statement in support of women's freedom and privacy today. Now is the time to show politicians attacking legal abortion and other reproductive-health care that their War on Women must end.

NARAL's War on Women (and their children) continues, but at least they're making good money selling T-shirts about it....
