  • 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:

      • th23Y93QX4
    • 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.

Life Right Now Podcast 9-20-14

On this week’s show:

  • Tim’s back!
  • Tim & Rebekah talk about the lack of leadership in the political arena in regards to the subject of life.
  • Brian Fisher, Co-Founder and President of Online for Life, discussing his current book, Abortion, The Ultimate Exploitation of Women and coming soon, Deliver Us From Abortion, Awakening the Church to End the Killing of America’s Children. Hear how Brian and his team saw a need and are meeting young women in “crisis pregnancies” where they are with the tools available through today’s technology.
  • And, a local pastor can’t handle the blistering heat from an anonymous emailer accusing him of copyright infringement. Pastor Michael Demastus of Fort Des Moines Church of Christ on Army Post Road on Des Moines’ Southside replaces his controversial sign: Fort DM Church Sign and replaces it with this: Fort DM Church Sign 2. Way to stay out of the fire Pastor Mike. 😉

Money, money, money…and a cool certificate suitable for framing!

Ever find yourself wondering if there is any hope for the Pro-Personhood cause or maybe you feel like you are the only one you know that thinks the way you do? Well…STOP RIGHT THERE! There is hope and there are reinforcements coming! Please take some time to go read the efforts of the four winners of our recent Life Right Now’s First Annual Personhood Essay Contest and be renewed! These young people did such and amazing job! And there were so many more excellent essays turned in, it truly was very hard to pick the winners. Over the next several weeks and months we will start sharing the runner-ups and you will see what we mean. In the mean time, check out the links below…

Also, as the name implies, we plan on having a 2nd Annual contest that will be bigger and even better (though the bar was set pretty high!) next year! So please spread the word and be on the look out after Christmas break this next year!

 

Here we are with the immensely talented winners and our incredibly generous sponsors (Once Upon A Child & Informed Choice of Iowa).
