The founder of the creationist group Answers in Genesis (AIG) and one of the chief architects of the planned “Ark Encounter” creationist museum in Kentucky, has been un-invited from two important home school conferences because of controversial comments he made about another conference speaker. As reported by OneNewsNow.com, the sponsor of the conferences, Great Homeschool Conventions, e-mailed noted creationist Dr. Ken Ham to inform him that he was no longer welcome at scheduled or future events because of “ungodly” and “mean-spirited” statements he had made about the convention and other speakers.
A school-shooting training drill in Iowa that featured hypothetical gunmen opposed to open borders and infringements on the right to keep and bear arms was canceled after causing a nationwide uproar among gun-rights supporters and border-security advocates.
On March 22, the Obama Administration raised yet another rainbow flag in political concession to the “gay” lobby, calling on the United Nations Human Rights Council in Geneva to take up the global campaign for homosexual rights. “Human rights are the inalienable right of every person, no matter who they are or who they love,” said Chamberlain Donahoe, U.S. Ambassador to the Human Rights Council, in a statement released with the delivery of the U.S declaration, which has the approval of more than 80 other nations. “The U.S. government is firmly committed to supporting the right of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender individuals to lead productive and dignified lives, free from fear and violence.”
Skeptics, it seems, have been trying to kill religion for the past several decades. Back in 1966, playing off the famous declaration by unhinged German philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche, a Time magazine cover story asked the rhetorical question, “Is God Dead Yet?” In the ensuing years, He has proven Himself very much alive, with a continuing interest in the affairs of men. But humanity’s apparent interest in Him has waxed and waned depending on its collective mood at any given time — with enthusiasm for all things divine being at a sufficiently low ebb for three American researchers to predict recently that religion itself may actually become extinct, or close to it, in nine nations over the next several years.
Is state sanctioned pre-natal infanticide (i.e. abortion under Roe v. Wade) inherently racist? Go back to the early decades of the 20th Century and there would be no doubt about the answer: eugenics, the science of population control, assumed that the perfectibility of man was possible by culling out the "weaker" strains of our species. If certain groups of human beings were seen as obviously inferior — blacks, Indians, and so on — then aborting their children had the same effect as sterilizing those members of the “inferior” race who were able to procreate.
