Top 10 reasons against Roe v. Wade | LiveAction News

    Rebecca Downs at Live Action News: Wednesday night, Students for Life of America’s group, Law Students for Life, and Harvard Right to Life held a debate, as part of the Law Students for Life tour. The debate was titled “Should Roe Survive Another 40 Years?” The event was broadcast live via USTREAM, and it is still up on the “Resources” section of the Law Students for Life website for those who are interested . . . Instead, the event first featured a presentation from Steve Aden, from Alliance Defending Freedom, followed by Professor Teresa Collett, of the University of St. Thomas School of Law. Now, I consider myself someone well-versed in the pro-life movement and the Roe v. Wade decision. However, there was much I learned from Aden’s carefully crafted presentation, which started off with the premise that Roe v. Wade is the single worst decision the Court has made and is a Supreme Court decision that the pro-choice side has never been able to get the other side to fully accept. The rest of his presentation involved the top-ten reasons to support his premise. The following portion of the article is my recounting of Aden’s reasons and explanations.

Fighting for Religious Freedom: Archbishop Chaput Receives the Edwin Meese Award | First Things

    First Things: I don’t have any illusions about “earning” this award. Dante has a circle somewhere in The Inferno for people who believe their own good press. But I’m very glad to accept the Meese Award to serve the efforts of the Alliance Defending Freedom. The ADF does crucial work for religious liberty, and it’s never been more urgently needed than now. Ed Meese, Robert Bork, Chuck Colson, Robert George—all of these men whom the ADF has honored in the past are heroes to me. I’m grateful to be included in their company . . . The wind is the business of God. Success is the business of God. Our business is to fight the good fight. Philippians 4:6-7 says “Have no anxiety about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which passes all understanding, will keep your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” Again: Our business is to fight the good fight. The Alliance Defending Freedom is vitally important in that work. That’s really why I’m here today—not to be honored, but to honor the ADF, its leaders and its staff, and to ask all of you to continue your generous support for its service.

On Cuss Words, Character and Confucius | Piero Tozzi at the Bell Towers

    Piero Tozzi at the Bell Towers: Restoring dignity to the Office of President is not something to be taken lightly – character matters, and the President should be a role model. Integrity radiates from the top: as Confucius noted, the virtuous ruler is like the pole star, setting the standard for those around him. When those in high office act virtuously, people are inspired to virtue. And when that happens, young lads stop cussin’ around the house… Actually Confucius did not say that last bit, but of this much I am confident: there will be no more upending the ottoman in an effort to reach the remote in order to hit the mute button and prevent an assault on tender ears when a President Romney or his minions speak.
