Please pray for these children

This news item reports about the FBI's rescue of 47 children who had been forced into prostitution. Thank God they are now safe, but the emotional scars they will carry are horrendous.

Obama's abortion extremism

That's the title of this article, which is a great look at Obama's radical views on abortion. Obama has said that if elected, his first act would be to sign the so-called "Freedom of Choice Act," which would remove any restriction at all to abortion. In a stroke it would obliterate all the laws that pro-lifers have managed to get enacted at the state level. This includes parental consent laws, etc.

Some people are saying that voting for Obama is a pro-life vote. Don't believe that lie for a minute!

The "Freedom of Choice Act" so dear to Obama's heart would also strike down conscience-protection laws. Under FOCA, Catholic doctors and hospitals, and other medical personnel who conscientiously object to abortion, would be forced to cooperate in the killing.

The bailout

This quote from a website called "The Daily Reckoning" puts the bailout in perspective:

"To put this amount into perspective: if you had spent $1,000,000 a day, from the birth of Christ until today, you would have only spent about 732 billion dollars."

Wow, I never thought of it like that!
