Why Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. marched
Human dignity and human rights, “for all God’s children.”
Pro-choice atheist to pro-life activist
It takes an open and intelligent mind that always seeks truth, willing to go wherever that leads. Becoming a parent also helps.
‘How should we talk about abortion?’
That was the subject of discussion on an hour of radio dedicated to changing the terms of debate between people who are pro-life and those who are pro-choice. Or even starting one….since both groups have been largely talking to themselves for decades.
Build a culture of life. Be a martyr if necessary.
“If we’re uncomfortable being Christians in a public debate, then we’ve already lost the war.”
Justin Bieber’s every word
I cannot explain the pop cult phenomenon of this young man and his meteroric rise to fame and his sensational following. But if he suddenly drops off the velocity meter or falls off the bubble…..I can probably tell you why.
The Supreme Court ruling legalizing abortion in America turns 38 today. It’s getting old.
Choice to leave the abortion business
Abby Johnson’s story spread rapidly back when she went from being a leader in Planned Parenthood and one of their clinic directors, to a committed pro-life advocate, in short order. After witnessing the horrifying sight of one abortion on an ultrasound screen. Now, she tells her compelling and dramatic story in 'unPlanned,' a new book about to be released. Great title, heart-stopping drama. It should certainly be a debate changer.
No choice in Chicago
The pro-life movement has been as adaptable as it has been enduring. When Chicago passed the insidious ‘bubble zone’ ordinance, politicians not only denied citizens their free speech rights, they robbed women of their right to have a true choice when facing a challenging pregnancy. But pro-lifers found a simple, legal and tasteful way to silently offer women aid. Or so they thought...

with the stark reality.

issues of the day in a way that promotes critical thinking skills and
intellectual honesty. Here in the Report you can expect fair reporting on
topics in the news and beyond the headlines with a perspective you may not be

This space is grounded in the natural law and moral order. That requires
civility, goodwill and an openness to truth and reason. And always striving for
a healthy sense of humor and a touch of grace.
Because everything is political and

anything that impacts modern culture. The great statesman Sir Thomas More
taught, by the noble witness of his life and his death, that “man cannot be
separated from God, nor politics from morality.” Our focus is how academia,
law, politics, entertainment and faith impact individuals and the pre-eminent
human right of dignity.
Christopher Dawson wrote of the Christians
in 1935: “The great danger we have to meet is not the danger of violent
persecution but rather that of the crushing out of religion from modern life by
the sheer weight of a State-inspired public opinion and by the mass
organization of society on a purely secular basis. Such a state of existence
has never occurred before because the State has never been powerful enough to
control every side of social life. The coming conflict is not one between
religion and secular civilization but rather between the God-religious and the
social-religions – in other words between the worship of God and the cult of
