Pro-Life Victory in Texas

460x

I’ll warn you up-front: this is going to be long, and if you’re given to being easily offended: offensive.

Last night the Texas Senate passed HB 2, a bill awaiting Governor Perry’s signature that will force all abortion facilities to adhere to ambulatory surgical center standards, outlaw abortions past 20 weeks and require providers to have privileges at a local hospital. You may read the entire bill for yourself here.

I generally say little about the abortion debate publicly, because in my mind it is a foregone conclusion that it is the most heinous act our society allows and participates in. I fully understand the arguments of the other side, but I cannot for a moment conceive how they can honestly argue for such monstrous behavior. There I go with the offense already.

Mexican Drug Cartels…Here?

A few years ago I had a dream where I was in Fort Worth, Texas, with my wife and kids. I dropped them off in downtown and then I went to another part of the city to take care of some business. When I drove back to downtown, I was stopped by some thugs who wouldn’t let me pass. I got out of my car and told them to move because I had to go get my wife and kids. They approached me and told me I wasn’t going “in there.” I thought their terminology was strange. I didn’t know there was an “in there” for me to go to.

I looked them over in silence for a moment, trying to figure out who they were. They were both white guys, but I had the immediate impression that they worked for the Mexican drug cartels. I stepped toward them and told them again to move so I could get by. One of them got right up in my face and said I wasn’t going through them alive. Immediately I realized the seriousness of the situation–that their cartel had taken over the city.

My Thoughts on DOMA and Prop 8

SCOTUS

If you hadn’t heard, the Supreme court today ruled against the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) and refused to rule on California’s Proposition 8, resulting in it being struck down by a lower court. What this means is that Gay marriage is legal in California and the Supreme Court has essentially redefined marriage. Or maybe a more appropriate term is that they un-defined marriage.

While I’m sure many would want to disagree with me on some technical details in either case, the broad brush painted today is that we, as the people of the United States, do not have the authority to define and codify into law what has been the practiced standard and understanding of marriage throughout the centuries.
