This past week, I shared the following links on social media and I think they’re worth sharing here too:

Families Pushed Toward Abortion

It’s a myth that every abortion is freely chosen by the woman. Many women are pressured into having abortions, including by doctors. My wife experienced this with our youngest, and many others have too. They make it sound like it’s your duty to have an abortion if there’s the slightest indication of an abnormality.

God Loves LGBTQ People More Than We Do

Samuel Sey: “God isn’t ashamed of the gospel. He isn’t embarrassed by his word. He isn’t anxious about telling people good things that might offend them. God isn’t afraid to tell the truth about sexual sin. God isn’t tempted to lie about pornography, fornication, adultery—and especially, homosexuality and transgenderism.”

My Life as a Christian Under a Communist Regime

This is really insightful, especially this: “It may surprise you, but from my perspective the main suffering for Chinese Christians is not physical persecution or lack of religious liberty but bad theology, though the reason behind bad theology is the lack of freedom.”

Washington Post column: Kids should watch portrayal of sex acts at ‘pride’ parades

Jonathon Van Maren: “In short, we’ve gone from: How dare you accuse us of wanting to influence kids? to Of course kids should see sex acts at Pride Parades!”

From Devastation to Deliverance

“Once constantly drunk and suicidal, William shares the story of how his sister, Danica, was influential in his coming to Christ. Despite a heart-breaking loss in their family, William and Danica share about the joys of being children of the only true God and testify to the importance of the local church in this evangelism story.”


Abortion and Gelada Monkeys

One of Canada’s longest running radio shows is CBC’s Quirks and Quarks.  Each Saturday, host Bob MacDonald features a series of clips on different news items from the world of science, medicine and technology.  I’ve been listening to this program on and off since I was a kid.  It’s always interesting – and you can always count on MacDonald to bring in the “E” word:  evolution.  It’s a subversive approach to convincing the Canadian public of this doctrine, as if the sheer repetition of something week in and week out will make it true.

The February 25, 2012 edition of Quirks and Quarks took the evolutionary agenda one step further.  One of the segments was about gelada monkeys.  These baboon-like monkeys live in the highlands of Ethiopia.  They live in a harem structure – with one male gelada monkey heading up a harem of many females.  When a new male monkey takes over a harem, the females that are pregnant typically miscarry.  If they don’t, the new male leader will often kill the infants and newborns.  The theory is that the females miscarry in order to “cut their losses” and start over.  They typically are impregnated by the new male leader in a short period after their “spontaneous abortion.”  Of course, this is regarded as an adaptive strategy, something that has evolved for the advancement of the species.  Monkeys have allegedly evolved with abortion as a way to maintain and improve their kind.

The researcher, Dr. Jacinta Beehner, made it clear that that the female monkeys don’t choose to miscarry.  It’s something that spontaneously happens.  They don’t deliberately cause the loss of the unborn monkey in any way.  Yet, throughout the interview, MacDonald continued to speak about the female monkeys making a choice in the matter.  The expression “cutting their losses” was used repeatedly by MacDonald.  It was pretty hard not to read between the lines.  The Quirks and Quarks website makes it even more clear.  It speaks of female geladas spontaneously aborting their pregnancy, as if they have a choice.  We’re told, “Essentially they are ending investment in offspring in-utero that have no future.”  Hmmm….not too subtle.  Caveat auditor – let the listener beware!

Heidi’s Story About the “Choice” of Abortion

ARPA Canada posted this video recently and it’s worth watching.  Israeli troops storm ships and spark world protests.  Meanwhile, unborn children die every day at the hands of abortionists and most are calloused and indifferent.  It’s shameful.
