  • Tolerance from the “tolerance crowd”…and a worldview wrapped up in 140 characters.
    • Jessa Duggar of 19 Kids and Counting fame causes quite a stir!
      • Below is the Instagram in question and a decidedly different take from the Huffington Post. What do you think?
        I walked through the Holocaust Museum again today… very sobering. Millions of innocents denied the most basic and fundamental of all rights–their right to life. One human destroying the life of another deemed “less than human.” Racism, stemming from the evolutionary idea that man came from something less than human; that some people groups are “more evolved” and others “less evolved.” A denying that our Creator–GOD–made us human from the beginning, all of ONE BLOOD and ONE RACE, descendants of Adam. The belief that some human beings are “not fit to live.” So they’re murdered. Slaughtered. Kids with Down syndrome or other disabilities. The sickly. The elderly. The sanctity of human life varies not in sickness or health, poverty or wealth, elderly or pre-born, little or lots of melanin [making you darker or lighter skinned], or any other factor. “If thou faint in the day of adversity, thy strength is small. If thou forbear to deliver them that are drawn unto death, and those that are ready to be slain; If thou sayest, Behold, we knew it not; doth not He that pondereth the heart consider it? and He that keepeth thy soul, doth not He know it? and shall not He render to every man according to his works?” (Proverbs 24:10-12) May we never sit idly by and allow such an atrocity to happen again. Not this generation. We must be a voice for those who cannot speak up for themselves. Because EVERY LIFE IS PRECIOUS. #ProLife

    • ProLife Across America’s billboards continually vandalized. The sad, but not surprising, language of hate:

    • And right here in our own back yard. Journalism students at Drake University (Rebekah’s Alma mater, BTW) in central Des Moines come face to face with the ugly intolerance of this crowd. Read their own coverage here.
