You may remember this case where the parents decided that the birth of their child was a horrible mistake and somebody had to pay. Well someone did.
Now coming before the supreme court is an interesting case where a woman went through in vitro and conceived a child after the father had died .
She now wants Social Security survivor's benefits. Now if the Court finds in her favor (and there is no reason to think they won’t), what about all those other children that entered the world through artificial means? One strong donor has conceived 100 plus children through this oh so romantic method.
If the court does rule in favor of this women when that donor dies will all those children be receiving SS checks?
I am so glad that redefining marriage and family has no ill effect on society.
Robert R. Reilly presents a well crafted, logical and well reasoned argument with 'A Weimar moment for America'. It is precisely because of that this article will be ignored at best, illicit death threats at worst. Every knows that quoting Aristotle, (“Men start revolutionary changes for reasons connected with their private lives.” ) and Plato in the same essay will be immediately dismissed as hopelessly out of touch.
From the 'sin makes you stupid' dept. I heard Soraya Chemaly on the radio the other day talking about her article titled "I'm No Longer a Catholic. Why Are You?" It was so utterly inane I started yelling at the radio. The only way anyone could be as wrong as her on so many points would be that she has spent NO time studying and less time thinking.
She honesty believes this:
"At its core, this debate is about control. And not just birth control. Either you are willing to support and participate in a culture in which men, refusing to accept women as fully human, use a perverted claim of divine right to control women and their bodies, or you don't."
And in keeping with the 'Keep your rosaries off my ovaries.' song book they now have "I will start paying more attention to the bishops' position on birth control on the day a Catholic bishop becomes pregnant." not as catchy but they are working on it.
She is making progress towards the rank of journeyman deceiver
The Governor's statement changes everything. He has now equated same sex marriage with the practice of religious freedom. I am not sure if he is referring to Spreadleggyism or Itsallaboutmeism but i am sure that now
Individual conscience is a good thing when choosing evil but a bad thing when choosing good. Oh how gay it all is!
"...In the book Heretics, Chesterton almost makes a prophecy of the misuse of the word “gay”: He writes of “the very powerful and very desolate philosophy of Oscar Wilde. It is the carpe diem religion; but the carpe diem religion is not the religion of happy people, but of very unhappy people.”
In further discussion of Oscar Wilde and the “decadents,” Chesterton says, again prophetically: “Decadents may like living in a dream which they can alter at any moment to suit themselves, in which they can create causes without creating consequences, in which they can pervert the future or unmake the past. But I think a decent working man of any class, whether he is working at cube roots or cabbage roots, ought to be glad that, as he sows, so shall he surely reap.”

"Forty percent of the female students at Georgetown Law reported to us that they struggled financially as a result of this policy (Georgetown student insurance not covering contraception), Fluke reported.
It costs a female student $3,000 to have protected sex over the course of her three-year stint in law school, according to her calculations.
I think most of us could easily do 30 minutes of stand-up on this but i have a few questions.
First being, how did Pelosi find this women, what kind of surveys were used to find going broke, sex crazed law students? They probably got the tip from Bill Clinton who graduated from Georgetown.
The second question is what kind of contraception is she using? The pill costs from $15.00 to $50.00 a month so that is at maximum $600.00 a year. If she is using condoms at $1.00 each she would have to have sex 5 times a day (more on weekends) to equal $1000.00 a year.
When does she have time go to class?
When you listen to her you get the feeling that the the lack of coverage for contraception is the new black plague that is sweeping the country.
