"The debate, which had the event description “Last year in Britain, over 185,000 abortions were carried out. What does this say about our national culture? Is it a sign of equality, or does it suggest we treat human life carelessly? Joining OSFL to debate the issue are two prominent journalists”, had been subject to heavy criticism from student activists." read mores via Christ Church cancels abortion debate | The Oxford Student.
Obama might have well have been naked – We could all see he didn’t have the goods to remain President:
There’s a Looney Tunes cartoon in which Daffy is desperate for applause from an audience in a theater. Everything Daffy does is met with silence until he swallows dynamite and gasoline and blows himself up. The crowd goes wild. As Daffy’s ghost ascends to the heavens, Bugs Bunny tells him the audience is screaming for more.
I knew Barack Obama was miserable when he tried to give debate moderator Jim Lehrer the Puss in Boots eyes. “You may want to move on to another topic,” Obama implored Lehrer, a bit like a motorcycle thief begging a cop to take him into custody rather than let him stay with the surly biker gang that caught him.
Leah Libresco a prominent atheist blogger at Patheos, a religion website, has left the ranks of the faithful no-faith for true believer status among the Christian hordes. Debate sparked this unexpected decision.
“The great thing about a lot of the atheist and skeptic community is that people talk more critically about ideas and want to see proof provided,” “That kind of analytical thinking is completely useful and the Catholic Church doesn’t need to and should not be afraid of because if you’ve got the facts on your side, you hope they win.”

“Taking another step into the abortion debate, the Obama administration today will move to rescind a controversial rule that allows health-care workers to deny abortion counseling or other family planning services if doing so would violate their moral belie, according to administration officials.
It makes me want to cry, while at the same time making me fighting mad, that life and conscience take yet another hit. The hit-man, Obama, means for that to keep happening, day after day, week after week, eating away at our morality. We will be losing bits and pieces of our humanity. Soon, we won’t recognize this country. A lot of Americans are re-thinking Obama, but where to from here? Obama will keep the pressure on. Here’s one man pushing back:
The death penalty is being debated in New Mexico. “It’s quite a debate” according to my pastor who finds irony in the fact that this debate rages while the death penalty is in fact “the most common penalty” known to man. “Every single one of us is under a sentence. We are born, so to speak, with a noose around our necks.”
“Our death is an absolute certainty..no second chances, no reincarnation!… ‘Human beings die once, and then the Judgment.’ Hebrews 9:27 ” What our pastor finds absolute madness, “insanity to the highest degree,” is that most people on this “Death March” to the grave, never ever stop to consider their end. “If we die in a state of grace, we shall live for all eternity. If we die in mortal sin, we shall be damned for all eternity.” No do-overs!
“The only guarantee of dying a holy death is living a holy life,” Monsignor Raun concluded.
Today is about more than hearts and flowers. Everybody knows it’s crunch time for the U.S.A. When things get really bad, the American people have a way of getting back to basics. The basics start with the foundational underpinnings of our Nation. Ronald Reagan got it right! Others, it seems, don’t like the founding fundamentals They hope for changes that will create an America no one will recognize as America. Texas Rainmaker and the Anchoress spell it out.
Reagan and Obama in their own words.
