Transgender Policies Based On Feelings, Not Biology
Looks like old Descartes got it wrong. "Cogito ergo sum," or, "I think therefore I am," has been superseded by "Sentio ergo sum," or, "I feel therefore I am." Welcome to the post-Oprah world of feelings. However, in today's world of "Sentio ergo sum," we are now being taught that a man can choose to be a woman — if he feels like it — and vice versa. All that is necessary for someone to belong to the opposite sex is to feel that he or she belongs to it, and bingo, it's a done deal.

“Flash Of Light” Not Needed To Prove Conception
For the lay audience, the truly relevant point is that there IS a moment of “human egg activation.” Using fluorescence to show a chemical reaction accompanying that moment of activation enhances the reality of when life begins–a fact that Justice Blackmun in the Roe v. Wade abortion decision said was unresolvable because so many people disagreed.

‘Let Me Finish’: Bill O’Reilly And Liberal Commentator Kirsten Powers Clash Over Transgender Bathroom Policies

Netherlands: New Push For Suicide Pill
There’s a question that I have put to those who are pushing for euthanasia and assisted suicide laws on occasion. Put simply I ask: If you are successful in your push for law reform on this subject, will you celebrate your victory and then close down your organisation? After all, if the objective is reached, what else is there to do?

New! Human Constraints and Knowing the Will of God

Douglas P. McManaman
"How in the world am I to know what God wants me to do? How do I know what the will of God is?" Perhaps what needs to be done. And it is the Holy Spirit who gives us the ability to want to do what needs to be done, and with an effectiveness that is beyond our natural ability.

#1 - Totipotency: Scientific References

Dianne N. Irving
The term "totipotent" has two meanings. First, it refers to the single-cell human organism/human being/human embryo sexually reproduced by fertilization -- whether done in vivo or in vitro. This new single-cell human being is thus capable of producing all the cells, tissues and organs of an adult human being. Second, it refers to individual cells of the early developing human embryo. IF they are separated from the original embryo then they are CAPABLE of being reverted back to new embryos IF the natural biological process of "regulation" is successful.

Silencing Christian Voices in America

Eric Metaxas
Adding tyranny to injustice, an Oregon official not only fined Christian bakers for refusing to bake a cake for a gay wedding, he has ordered them not to speak about it.

Christian Family - Gift and Hope

Rosa Linda G. Valenzona
The world appears to be bent on the destruction of marriage and the family. This attack was spearheaded by the globalization of contraception and abortion promoted by the anti-natalist propaganda and justified by doomsday predictions of population explosion. The world is in for a rude awakening. The dominant demographic problem is not going to be population explosion. Ageing and population implosion will dominate the social, economic, political and demographic horizon of this century. The UN has openly admitted that population ageing is due to the drastic fall in fertility.

Christians and the Homeless

David W.T. Brattston
Christians have a serious obligation to respect and help the homeless and other poor. This is not just one possible interpretation of the Bible among many but was an essential teaching of Christianity in its first two and a half centuries, before it was divided into present-day denominations, a time when most Christians today believe the Holy Spirit was still guiding the church.
