I was shopping in Walmart tonight (it’s still tonight because I haven’t gone to bed yet) and looked down at the ring I wear on my right hand. In the middle of a ring of diamonds is supposed to be a blue topaz. *Sigh* I’ve had that ring 32 years, and this is the third time I’ve lost the center stone. Guess I’ll be paying a visit to the jeweler.

Experts Tie Aggressive Behavior to Porn Use 



‘Men go from just consuming pornography to acting out.’



According to the Journal of Research in Personality, six in 10 men said they would force a woman to do something she did not want to do, and/or rape her, if they knew they wouldn’t get caught.


Patrick Trueman with the Alliance Defense Fund said the porn industry, which took in $13 billion last year, is to thank.


“What this statistic shows is that men will go from just consuming pornography on a regular basis to acting out,” he said.


Mary Anne Layden, clinical psychologist at the University of Pennsylvania, said porn generates and reinforces lies about sexuality.


“These messages lead to permission-giving beliefs,” she said, “for violence, sexual entitlement, that I should be able to have sex whenever I want, however I want, wherever I want, with whomever I want.”


Vickie Burress with VictimsOfPornography.org said the troubling numbers reinforce the need to battle the porn industry.


“It’s very real,” she said. “It’s happening in our churches just as much as it’s happening in society.”

Wisconsin Man Charged with Killing Preborn Baby 



Abortion drug RU-486 was found in girlfriend’s drink.



When a Wisconsin woman miscarried for the second time, she realized that maybe it wasn’t a miscarriage after all. A lab confirmed her suspicions: the abortion drug RU-486 was found in her drink. Now her boyfriend could spend the rest of his life in prison on charges of murdering his preborn child.


Manishkumar Patel is accused of slipping the drug into his girlfriend’s food and drink after he found out she was pregnant. In the U.S., RU-486 is available by prescription only; the defendant is accused of getting the pills from his native India.


Patel is being charged under Wisconsin’s fetal homicide law. Dawn Vargo, associate bioethics analyst for Focus on the Family Action, said that’s a bit ironic.


“There is a fundamental discrepancy here,” she said, “when a man can be charged with homicide for killing a preborn child without the woman’s consent or knowledge, but when a woman wants to pay to have her preborn child killed, it’s perfectly legal.


“We will continue to see these sorts of horrendous stories in the news until our culture starts revering human life and seeing abortion for what it truly is.”

On the Big Screen, Abortion is Out 





There’s an abortion every 30 seconds in the U.S., but that’s not the trend on the silver screen. The Philadelphia Inquirer reports that recent movies are choosing life.


Movies such as Knocked Up, Waitress and Juno all show an unplanned pregnancy being carried to term. While Focus on the Family does not endorse these movies as family-friendly, the movies do promote a positive message about the importance of life.


Bob Smithouser, print editor for Focus on the Family’s Plugged In magazine, said Knocked Up points out the baby’s heartbeat in an eighth-week ultrasound.


“During the closing credits, viewers see the child and her parents still together and enjoying family life,” he said. “Even (the main character’s) mom, who advised her to abort and someday have a ‘real baby,’ seems blessed by the bundle of joy she would have destroyed.”

    This is indeed an interesting twist on abortion, however two things stood out to me. 1. “Miscarried for the second time” this was at least her second illegitimate pregnancy. 2. “her boyfriend”.  If people today had any morals she would be pregnant by her HUSBAND!!!!

  3. I know, Cathy. I thought those things, too. It is just so common now. It hasn’t been very many years ago that a couple would get married as soon as they found out they were expecting, and now so many don’t even bother.
    And you know, if a couple has a baby, stays together, builds a life together and calls themselves a family, why not go ahead and just get married? Why all the insistence on doing it the “unmarried” way? The easy answer is because it is a form of rebellion. They are not going to do it the way established society has done it for years, or die trying. I know people that say, “It’s just a piece of paper!” If it is “just a piece of paper,” why are they so afraid of it?
