Genderside In Action

I guess we shouldn't really be surprised. Since when does a woman refer to the "sex of the pregnancy"? Convenient euphemisms....

U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals Rules DOMA Unconstitutional...

In the latest "I want to punch myself in the face" moment, the U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals has ruled the Defense of Marriage Act unconstitutional. An excerpt from an article reads, "The appeals court agreed with a lower court judge who ruled in 2010 that the law is unconstitutional because it interferes with the right of a state to define marriage and denies married gay couples federal benefits given to heterosexual married couples, including the ability to file joint tax returns."

Herein lies the problem- no state has the right or the power to redefine marriage. No state has the right or the power to redefine what constitutes life. We as humans can play games and pretend we have this power but we do not. Widespread acceptance of homosexual behavior or abortion doesn't make it right or inherently good. The truth is not decided upon by popular vote.

Where does this end? If a state or a people think they can redefine marriage to include men with men and wome…

"A Progressive Society Being Good Without gods" and Other Nonsense...

The American Humanist Association is giving a coveted (really?) humanist award to 16-year-old Jessica Ahlquist this year at the 71st Annual AMA Conference.

Ahlquist is the young woman leading a charge to have a prayer mural removed in her high school as well as advocating the removal World War I and II memorial crosses., what an achievement.

Not to be outdone though are other award recipients such as Gloria Steinem who will receive a "Humanist of the Year" award and another teenaged young man who will receive a "Freedom From Religion" award.

Now, I could be wrong here, but it seems to me that the humanist movement wears a convenient cover of people being nice to other people without the "interference" of God. Apparently the idea of "inevitable progress" is something they firmly grasp onto.

But if we can look a bit more closely, we see that this is an empty facade. For example, the "Humanist of the Year" Steinem, published a…

Live Action Reveals Planned Parenthood's Gender Selective Abortion...

Once again we see the facts that the Planned Parenthood organization does not love women. In fact, it is complicit in gender selective abortion.

Beware of the Photoshop Shark!

LOL! this image appeared in Marie Claire magazine featuring a woman who had been, um, a little over-zealously photoshopped. One pop culture blog entitled this photo "woman loses arm to photoshop shark"

Miley Cyrus Misses the Mark (And the Neckline As Well)...

Miley Cyrus (most popularly known from her Disney sitcom, Hannah Montana) appeared on a talk show yesterday speaking about the importance of parents talking to their children about sex.

"It’s ignorant not to talk to your kids about it or [not] make it seem as magical or cool as it actually is,” she said.

Good point, Miley. Parents are the first and primary educators of their children and their lives stand as a powerful instrument of formation.

Miss Cyrus then goes on to say, "The girls that really base how much they’re worth on the sexual favors they can do for somebody, that makes me really sad...your worth isn’t based on [sex]," she added. "Your worth is based on how you feel about yourself.”

Okay, here is the issue. And this is why it rings untrue coming from this 19-year-old girl who showed up to the Billboard Music Awards on Sunday only wearing a white jacket. Yes, that's it. Only a jacket. No pants, no shirt underneath. Everything was on display. This is…

Government Lawsuit

Several Catholic institutions filed lawsuits against the government today regarding the contraceptive mandate being forced upon the insurance plans of Catholic organizations.

Please remember, the contraceptive mandate is not really about contraception. It's been cleverly buried in this controversial topic. The issue regarding the mandate is the government forcing the Church to pay for something that violates conscience.

Solar Eclipse- the 'Ring of Fire'

check out some of these awesome pics from yesterday's solar eclipse (taken from Texas and Arizona), known as the Ring of Fire. Of course, it rained yesterday in Seattle so we didn't get to see it. at all. :(

and enjoy a little Johnny Cash singing Ring of Fire :)

"World's Ugliest Woman"?

When I saw the title of this article "World's Ugliest Woman", it made me cringe. I was thinking, "Who has given her this title and has she somehow agreed to it?" But as I read the article, it is clear that this woman, Lizzie Velasquez, isn't ugly at all. She is just as God has allowed her to be- in all her radiance.

She is probably stronger than most people will ever hope to be.

God bless her-

Give Your Heart A Break...

I heard this song a couple of times today and I like the lyrics. I think in a certain way (go with me on this one) that these words are along the lines of something Jesus speaks to our hearts. How often we have been disappointed in relationships and we think God will reject us like many other people have. But He isn't like that, He isn't like the rest, so to speak.

He wants to give us a place to rest, to give our heart a break.

Joe Biden is Gramatically Incorrect and President Obama Morally Washes Out...

Check out this interesting article about the recent announcements on the support of gay marriage by Joe Biden and President Obama. Then read this article about the timing of the announcement. Coincidence? I think not....

California to Ban Reparative Therapy?

Lawmakers in California are considering a ban on any kind of therapy on minors that seeks to help those with same-sex attraction repair their attractions and life-style. Read the article here

Talk about an attack on free speech and freedom of choice- This is crazy and if this law passes, it will be a disaster for millions of people. Can we not see what is going on here? a constriction of truth for those who suffer. Banning reparative therapy won't make guilt and shame go away. Affirming people in their wounds doesn't heal anything.

The bill's author, Ted Lieu (D) had this to say about the issue: attempts to pathologize and change people’s sexual orientation should be treated akin to smoking and drinking: harmful activities that adults can choose to participate in, but children cannot. “We let adults do all sorts of stupid and risky things, but we ban dangerous things for young people.”

These words do not even make sense. Why does he equate a healing therapy with being s…

Government Issues a Study of Studies

This article made me laugh! It's hard when you have so many studies that you have to issue another study to study those studies.

Holy Father Calls For Authentic Catholic Universities

Call Me Maybe

I have been hearing this song a lot- it's a popular hit on the charts right now. I am trying to figure out what she is really saying to this guy.

Abortion = Big Business

Think abortion is a private matter between a woman and her doctor with no greed for profit?

Think again. It's an evil, sadistic money-making business.

The article below is not for the faint of heart but gives an insight into the many "uses" of abortion. Sick, indeed.

May God have mercy on them.

Kate Upton: Beauty Gone Ugly

Sports Illustrated cover model, Kate Upton, has been in the news quite a bit lately. The 19-year-old bombshell scored the coveted swimsuit issue cover, appeared in a movie as a nun (oh, the irony) and then recently had a video of herself, uh...dancing, reinstated by youtube. Triumph of the beautiful woman? Is this the revelation of the truly beautiful or is it grasping for attention? (and as an aside, where is her father? What is her dad doing?)

Let's review the facts. The world worships physical beauty. If you are physically attractive, the world pays you special attention and then proceeds to worship you. What is this attraction to physical beauty? It speaks to something much deeper. It is really a longing for heaven. As we live on earth, we are given glimpses of eternity and beauty (especially in a woman) is a glimpse of heaven. But what happens when beauty goes ugly?

Upton competed with many other attractive women to win the prize as the cover model on this year's Sports …

Sean Hannity Blasts Occupy Organizer

Sean Hannity blasted occupy organizer Harrison Schultz yesterday in an interview on his show.

Interesting how when certain priests were accused within the Catholic church, the mainstream media tried to pin that crime on every priest and celibacy itself. Yet, when the occupy movement does horrible and violent things....well, it's just not their fault nor representative of what they are really about. Spare me.
