A Catholic Priest Eviscerates Childish NeverTrumpers

  Outcomes. NeverTrumpers seem to believe that the act of voting is a sort of magic spell that can right all past wrongs. Psychologists call this “magical thinking.” Children do it. Magical thinking is the belief that we can change the outside world with our thoughts. Think of rain dances and crossed fingers. Or, as …

Trump Is the Only Viable Pro-Life Choice

Some pro-life activists like Erick Erickson are plotting ways to sabotage Donald Trump’s candidacy for president. They probably haven’t stopped to think. If they succeed in defeating Trump, they will be culpable in many, many abortions. That’s a lot of guilt for a guy like Erickson to carry around, isn’t it? Chances are Congress won’t …

Not Just Wrong–Evil

Today was a particularly busy day for me. I had a series of meetings. Like every hour, another meeting. From 9:00 on. I saw the text from my wife.  I didn’t have time to click on a video. I was in a room full of people. Important business. Major client and all that. And I …

If You Want Fewer Abortions, Stop Talking About How Many There Are

I’m using abortion as an example, but this bit of science applies to all political messaging. What’s wrong with this headline? I’ll tell you what’s wrong with it. It shouts: “Everybody’s getting an abortion!” Even if connected with messages that say abortion is wrong. In numerous studies, messages intended to discourage a behavior by promoting …

Obama Cancelled Religious Freedom, But Some People Aren’t Listening to Obama

Old Courthouse St. Louis

When Obama decreed that Catholics shall support and provide chemical abortions, he wasn’t promoting women. He was shackling religion. Totalitarian autocrats don’t cotton freedom, unless they personally granted it.  Obama doesn’t believe in individual liberty, but that all power and rights emanate from government. Timothy Cardinal Dolan agrees. So it’s exciting to report that some St. Louisans …

Abortion and ObamaCare

In Tennessee and Arizona, insurance exchanges created under ObamaCare are barred from covering abortions. Pro-life groups claim this trend will continue as more states realize that the bill passed earlier this year allows states to block abortion coverage by private exchanges. (Missouri’s legislature sent a similar measure to Gov. Jay Nixon.) Pro-abortion members of Congress …

Good Government Doesn’t Kill Babies

One of Barack Obama’s first actions as president will likely involve a series of executive orders ensuring that as many abortions as possible happen. Good government protects its most vulnerable citizens; bad government kills them. Nazi Germany killed the weak, the halt, the improvident.  Of course, the Nazis trained specialist to carry out these grim and …

Everytime I’ve debated the death penalty with a bleeding-heart, I’ve heard this question:  “Would you pull the switch” or its equal.  It’s only fair to turn the question on them. Barack Obama, if you read this blog, please answer this question:  Would you kill child who survived an abortion with your own hands?  (Thanks to …
