We also wanted to share some...

We are a little concerned about entering into the fray surrounding the cause of the dramatic spike of autism cases.  We, however, decided that this information should at least be looked at and considered. Several pro-life organizations are reporting on a new study recently released by...

Although not entirely unexpected, we are sad for the families of Portugal that will now be forced to accept same-sex marriage.  On Wednesday, President Aníbal Cavaco Silva, signed the bill stating that he knew his veto could and would be overrode by lawmakers and that...

In a surprising move to those who actively combat the spread of pornography in our culture, the American Psychiatric Association (APA) recently announced the release of  new draft diagnostic guidelines that identify pornography addiction as a form of “hypersexual disorder” and thus worthy of serious...

Our friends at Population Resource Institute (PRI) have produced a series of YouTube videos that eloquently and simply explain some of the myths surrounding demographics and overpopulation.  They’re short and fun to watch.  Take just a couple of minutes to enjoy and learn.

China has been involved in coercive abortion for years, driven primarily by a perceived need to enforce their appalling program known as the “one child policy.”  But did you know that forced abortion is happening in the U.S. as well?  Consider this case reported on...

Many scoff at the notion of a “gay agenda.”  Ask, however, Randy Thomasson of the pro-family group Save California that question and his response is “absolutely!”  We want to direct you to a Save California Radio program where you will learn about: 1.   Harvey Milk...

In a move that could be placed in the dictionary as the definition of “twisted,” Planned Parenthood is soliciting donations using Mother’s Day as a hook.   Planned Parenthood Federation (PPF) President, Cecile Richards, sent out an email this week stating in part: "It's almost Mother's Day...

Reading the “comments” section of blogs and internet articles can be even more educational—and often more entertaining—than the article itself.  This was certainly the case with a “comment” that I copied and saved a while back.  I don’t remember the content of the article, but...

Think pornography is a huge societal problem now?  If the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) gives the go ahead to a proposal to create a .XXX domain, it could get worse.  A possible ruling by ICANN this month (May) would create the...

So does that mean if you are against abortion (pro-life) that you must be “less educated “ or dare I say “less smart?”  There are studies out there that claim that atheists and people who identify as “liberal” have higher IQ’s and thus go on...

We’ve been shocked and very troubled by the report coming out of Italy of a newborn baby who was subject to an attempted abortion and then left by the abortionist/physician to die.  The UFI Daily also passed on a follow-up story.  One’s mind has to...

For those of you who followed the Steve Leavitt debate a few years ago on his theory that legal abortion lowered crime rates, we’ve got a study, albeit a few years late, to enlighten the debate. For those of you unfamiliar with what we are talking...

Yesterday we posted a speech by Orson Scott Card describing the power of narrative and storytelling in shaping a culture's values and expectations. An interesting example of this is the story our society is telling (or isn’t telling) about sexually transmitted diseases (STDs). You may not...

“A Strong Culture must have powerful stories explaining why it is a Good Culture — or it will die,” explained Orson Scott Card at a recent gathering of the Management Society of Brigham Young University. Card is the well-known author of over 50 works of fiction,...
