Your Turn / From an unimpeachable source!
« on: July 21, 2020, 08:27:08 PM »
It looks like KPlanned Parenthood is finally admitting to its racist roots. At least the New York Times thinks so.

Your Turn / New study on abortion
« on: December 16, 2019, 08:59:03 PM »
Secular Pro-Life is an organization that is unlike those awful Catholics or knuckle dragging Evangelicals. They are secular. Their position in favor of life and opposition to abortion is not rooted in faith. So this article is interesting. And gives lie to an article of faith held by two members of the ELCA who post here.

Your Turn / When did Jesus become fully human?
« on: January 25, 2018, 10:09:00 AM »
Christians have traditionally taught in regards to soteriology that only that which is assumed (by Christ) can be saved. We believe that Jesus is fully human.

So- at what point did the Divine Logos take on his full humanity? As an unrepentant papist, I will celebrate the 25th of March in answer to that question. But I would be interested in what others, especially those who are "pro-choice but anti-abortion" would say.

Your Turn / March for Life 2018
« on: January 15, 2018, 04:47:14 PM »
Just thought I would start this up to see who is going, and to which march.

I will be there with ~50 young men to witness to the Gospel of Life.

I know the the Personal Ordinariate of the Chair of St. Peter will be present as well.

Where will Lutherans for Life be forming up?

And, as I have done now for over a decade, I specifically invite anyone with any interest in journalism (cough, cough) to attend and experience this event first hand instead of through the filter of the MSM which will have a brief mention and show footage of Sr. Mary Centenarian and/or Fr. Geriatric, neglecting the fact that if you pull out from the tight shot, you will see them surrounded by a sea of youth.

Your Turn / "For All the Saints" getting FB love!
« on: August 16, 2017, 10:26:31 PM »
Just thought all y'all would want to know that the Liturgy of the Hours Discussion and Support Group (Catholic & Anglican) is showing mad love to ALPB's own For All the Saints. Feeling some home town pride, so to speak.

Your Turn / New Data
« on: June 06, 2017, 09:32:18 PM »
I know certain folks are all sciency and think that what we need is more sex ed and contraceptives for the young 'uns.

But then there is this:

I had wanted to post a link to the site that was still hosting the latest video showing what the abortion-industrial complex thinks. It is vile. All the more so when you realize that this is not some fringe element, a Westboro Baptist, or ISIS. Nope, this is an​ all access pass to the Wansee Conference. If I can find a link that has not been suppressed by a coopted judiciary or by Big Brother's evil In Law, Google, I will post it.

Your Turn / Even they admit now
« on: January 06, 2017, 04:42:17 PM »
One of the foolish canards with which  I've had to deal over the years is the one that states, "if you really wanted to reduce abortions, you would push contraceptives..." And I have kept mentioning the effect The Pill has as a de facto abortifacient. I saw this article today:

Your Turn / Can we try this out?
« on: June 29, 2016, 03:21:12 PM »

Can we all make a commitment to avoid reacting to a certain Troll? By all means address arguments made. It's easy because fatuity makes any easy target. But can we avoid filling up otherwise interesting threads with comments to the effect of what a total a$$hat this troll is?

I ask for several reasons.

1) Part of me suspects that he enjoys getting things off the rails. If we stay on topic, the fun is removed.
2) It brings us down to troll level.
3) Even if deserved, it is sort of mean.

I reflect on this having just spent 10 months with adolescent males in a classroom setting. I had a few trolls to deal with. One thing I noted with a number of them was the psychological/spiritual pain that made them that way. Even the ones who were filled with braggadocio.

By all means, hit back on the topic in question. Just let's stop letting the troll set the agenda. And we might even try politeness. Note that I said try, and not succeed.  ;)

So this happened:

It's a study out of Notre Dame. They looked at condom distribution not just at one school, but at many. Apparently the thing I said happens and such stalwarts of enlightened sexual morality as Charles and Brian said does not, actually does happen.

Take away point: When you give out condoms like candy, you end up with more, not fewer, pregnancies.

It's bad enough when you have a utilitarian ethic. It's even worse when utilitarian ethic has no great utility.

It would be nice to receive an apology for all the times I was called liar or wrong for pointing out the flaw in the prophylactics like Pez programs one finds even in ELCA congregations. But I expect that about the time Mephistopheles straps on his figure skates.  ;)

Your Turn / Online Biblical Resource Recommendations and Wave Offs
« on: March 16, 2016, 06:42:48 PM »
Brothers and Sisters in Christ-

I have my young men working on Gospel Trading Cards. The bottom line is that I know they will be surfing ta interwebz for information on their assignment and I want to compile a naughty and nice list so to speak of great sites to use and ones they should avoid.

So- any sites you folks use in your own exegetical work, or with confirmands etc.?

Your Turn / History request
« on: May 29, 2015, 09:08:39 PM »
I am trying to remember the name of the ALC parish in East Meadow, NY that was one of the two on LI to go apostate.

It is where I was baptized.  The folks who opened the door to Satan were meeting beneath the pastor's feet literally while he was baptizing me.  My older brother had (actually still does  ;)) autism, and so I was baptized after the morning services so he could be part of the service.

Your Turn / What's up with this?
« on: June 26, 2014, 12:34:38 PM »
So I was looking at my FB newsfeed when I saw something from one of the groups I follow that flirts with the rad/trad side of the house.

I laughed when I saw the graphic they were using, 'cause it was Lutheran..  Thenn I followed the link to this:

Uummmh- who is Pr. Glover (Besides an LCMS pastor who is serving as a chaplain)?  Is he a majority of one in his statement, or is this actually a thing with my bretheren and cistern across the Mississippi?

Your Turn / The failure of contraception
« on: July 05, 2012, 04:01:43 PM »
One of the recuring tropes from Prs. Austin and Stoffregen, et. al, in any discussion that touches upon the horror of abortion is something to the effect of, "If you want to be against abortion, you have to be for contraception."

So- in light of that I have a link of interest:

Do they have an agenda? Undoubtedly.  As does PP.  Only their's does not include getting rich off the death of tens of thousands.
