About those ‘laws that would OK killing abortion providers’

    Pajamas Media: Americans United for Life Vice President of Legal Affairs Denise Burke tells the “anti-life media once again got their facts wrong” in reporting about AUL’s “Pregnant Woman’s Protection Act.” She said the model legislation seeks to ensure that a pregnant woman and her unborn child are protected from criminal violence and that her decision to carry her child to term is respected and that the model legislation was drafted in direct response to the well-documented and growing problem of pregnancy-related violence against women.

Now government wants to control tidiness of churches

    Bob Unruh writes at WorldNetDaily: But the ADF said the trouble started because the church “treats seriously the God-given call to help the poor and disadvantaged…” “So this church opened its facilities to help those in need with food and a place to stay. On several occasions, this church opened its doors to people who lost their home, were currently homeless, or otherwise unable to find a place to live. This church provided food for those who were hungry. It had a closet where it kept food to give away to those in need. In essence, this church decided that merely talking about doing God’s will was not going to cut it. It put its faith in action and actually used its facilities to carry out God’s command to care for the needy,” the organization confirmed. “The city also made such illogical conclusions that while using a church room to talk about caring for the homeless would serve a religious purpose, actually caring for the homeless in that room would not serve a religious purpose,” the ADF said. In its tax appeal for 2008, the ADF argues the church is entitled to the full benefit of tax exemptions for churches.

David French: “All Our Destinies: Why I’m a Calvinist”

    David French writes at Patheos: “I don’t feel closer to God,” I said, “but I do know that I depend utterly on Him for the next breath of life in my body and for the breath of life in my wife and children.” Some people call that fatalistic. But that misunderstands the difference between fate and Providence. Christ is the author and finisher of our faith, and that means there is plan, a story, a purpose—one that we cannot discern and will not discern until that day when we know as we are known. Events don’t just happen; they unfold and are revealed according to the plan of a loving God.

Obama Offers Flexibility to Implement Single Payer Faster

    Heritage Foundation: President Barack Obama knows all of this, which is why he told the visiting National Governors Association at the White House yesterday that he supports changing the date that states can begin applying for waivers from some Obamacare mandates from 2017 up to 2014. Specifically, the President endorsed legislation by Senators Ron Wyden (D–OR) and Scott Brown (R–MA), claiming: “It will give you flexibility more quickly while still guaranteeing the American people reform.” President Obama is at least half right here. Wyden–Brown would give states some flexibility—but only the flexibility to implement a government take over of health care faster.

Financial terrorism suspected in 2008 economic crash

    Washington Times: Evidence outlined in a Pentagon contractor report suggests that financial subversion carried out by unknown parties, such as terrorists or hostile nations, contributed to the 2008 economic crash by covertly using vulnerabilities in the U.S. financial system. The unclassified 2009 report “Economic Warfare: Risks and Responses” by financial analyst Kevin D. Freeman, a copy of which was obtained by The Washington Times, states that “a three-phased attack was planned and is in the process against the United States economy.”
