Poor Excuses for a Butcher: Gosnell is the Typical Abortionist

First there was a complete media blackout on the Gosnell case (except in pro-life circles), and now that liberal outlets have been forced to comment on this case, they blame the pro-life movement for “creating” abortionists like Gosnell. This is so dumbfoundingly illogical and without any basis in fact. Easy access to abortion begets more abortion, and pro-abortion groups blocking regulations means disreputable and unscrupulous … Continue reading Poor Excuses for a Butcher: Gosnell is the Typical Abortionist

“The Woman’s Place”

[Editor’s Note: This is a post from the original (LAF) site that I meant to bring over to the new one but forgot. After a couple of reader requests, I managed to locate the original file. This is excellent material and illustrates why robust biblical womanhood negates any “need” for feminism. Women are already “empowered” thanks to God’s high calling for them and the full scope … Continue reading “The Woman’s Place”

The Christian divorce rate myth

From American Vision News: The Aquila Report reports, “Christians divorce at roughly the same rate as the world.” It’s one of the most quoted stats by Christian leaders today. And it’s perhaps one of the most inaccurate. . . . Many people who seriously practice a traditional religious faith — be it Christian or other — have a divorce rate markedly lower than the general population. … Continue reading The Christian divorce rate myth

An Open Letter to Suze Orman

I think this post has gone viral in the last 24 hours. It’s just plain common sense, but I can’t even count how many times people have asked us how on earth we can afford to have “so many” children. If every child cost us $700-1000 a month, then, yes, we might be in trouble with ten kids. But it’s nowhere near that amount, as … Continue reading An Open Letter to Suze Orman

Yes, Virginia, there is a gender gap

We’ve posted about the wage-gap myth before, but here’s another good piece on this controversial issue: The National Economic Council report “Jobs and Economic Security for America’s Women” recites some of the many ways the Obama administration is getting jobs for women. The report promises that President Obama “is committed to continuing the push for an economy that provides economic security and jobs for America’s … Continue reading Yes, Virginia, there is a gender gap

Feminists Have a Tantrum

From Phyllis Schlafly’s latest column: The feminists are so accustomed to having their gender doctrines prevail in the courts, in the bureaucracy, in the media and in academia that they can’t deal with being told the truth, i.e., that their notions don’t make sense and are unfair to others, especially employers, husbands and fathers. Judge Loretta A. Preska of the U.S. District Court in Manhattan … Continue reading Feminists Have a Tantrum

Zimbabwe’s “Surprising” AIDS success

The AIDS rate here in Africa far outstrips that of any other continent with infection rates in countries like Botswana and Lesotho approaching 24%. Zimbabwe’s rate was 29% in 1997–that’s almost a third of the population infected with HIV or full-blown AIDS. Within ten years, it had tumbled to 16%…and no thanks to western-style “solutions” that have been touted for years as the only way to deal with AIDS.

[Click below for the full report — not for young readers.]

Kids can do abstinence, data shows

From Carolyn Moynihan over at Mercatornet: Those who insist on “safer sex” education for adolescents seem to assume two things: first, that nearly all teens will become sexually active, and second, that it doesn’t matter (they have a right to) so long as they take precautions against disease and pregnancy. Therefore, all teens should be subjected to the same sexual propaganda. But a report from … Continue reading Kids can do abstinence, data shows

Girly-Girls

"Going Out", October 21,1933 Giclee Print
“I’m not like other girls, who -“
I always want to stop a sentence dead in its tracks when it starts that way. Because I can guess what might come afterwards:
  • I don’t like frilly clothing.
  • I don’t like the color pink.
  • I don’t scream when I see a bug (or a mouse, or any other creepy/crawly/scittery vermin).
  • I like to hang out with guys.
  • I laugh at men’s jokes.
  • I don’t fall head-over-heels for a guy.
  • I don’t giggle and prattle.
It doesn’t matter how you fill in the blanks -the objective of the comment is clear: I am somehow different and set apart from other women, and, though I will not come out and say it, I believe that it makes me superior to them. Continue reading “Girly-Girls”

Modern Women: Submitting and Serving?

Nobody wants to be a slave. Nobody grows up aspiring to be a servant. In independent, me-centered America, all the coveted positions are on top.

Words like “slave” and “servant” have negative connotations that make us think “low-class,” “subjugation,” and, in many cases, injustice or infringement of rights. Not surprising, then, is the fact that many women look distastefully on the idea of giving their time and energy to “serving” a husband. The very phrase is no doubt turning off many of you even as you read this.

Just mention the idea that a woman should be at the door to greet her husband, with children in tow and dinner on the table, and you’ll instantly have women up in arms saying you’re stuck in the 1950s or have a primitive mind capable of no real critical thought (or as one woman attacking my blog on a message board said, “When I get home, I tell my husband to go to the fridge and get ME what I want”).

Now, I’m not saying that women have to do those specific things–I’m just saying that the response to such a suggestion reveals that the modern woman’s heart is nowhere near to that of a servant’s.
