Abortion images to be shown on Jumbo-tron at Lincoln Memorial

Abortion has ended more lives than the world wars and the Holocaust combined. We see those images, and say to ourselves, "Never again." What if the world could see exactly what happens in a real abortion process?  Tomorrow in Washington D.C., they will.

Created Equal, a national pro life group, will be displaying abortions in progress on a Jumbo-Tron TV screen at the Lincoln Memorial on July 14, as part of a week-long Justice Ride event.  The idea is to tell in images the hard truth about what abortion is and does.

The group created the video a few years ago and has shown it at other events, including the DC March for Life and West Coast Walk for Life.  "Traditionally at these events, the politicians, activists, and post-abortive parents are given a voice.  Not until recently have the babies been represented in such a profound way.  Using this powerful technology allows us to continue to stand for the victims at these events," says Created Equal via its website.

The Lincoln Memorial is known, among other things, as the location for the famous "I Have Dream" speech delivered by the late Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. in which he restated our Founders' words that "all men are created equal."

Praying to "Papa Francesco?"

(Update September 23) Parades, tears of joy, mobs trying to touch his robe. Can you believe what we are watching on television as the Pope visits the U.S.? When reporters call this a "holy day" for the United States, and gush over the "Holy Father," it's a holy slap in the face to our only real Holy Father. Just a few months ago, protestant Christian leaders were praising and praying TO the Pope. I dug this out of the trash from the old site and am so thankful that I've archived all my posts!

An astounding ecumenical prayer alert shared by Christian singer Don Moen suggests that people of all faiths are praying to Papa Francesco, or Pope Francis, the "Holy Father."  The artist was invited, along with Andrea Bocelli And Darlene Zschech to sing in Rome at the Vatican in a "Voices In Prayer" event in St. Peter's Square, to pray for persecuted Christians.

"This ecumenical event brings Protestants, Catholics, and Jews together as we pray for our brothers and sisters in Christ who are being martyred and persecuted all over the world today. Although there are many denominational differences throughout the church worldwide, I have seen firsthand how coming together in worship and prayer promotes unity." He also shared this on his Facebook Page from Channel 2000, a pro-Vatican television channel:

College Ministry Kicked off Campus - for Requiring Leaders to Be Christian

TURLOCK, Calif. – A Christian campus organization has lost recognition from its university and been accused of “religious discrimination” for not allowing non-Christians to hold leadership positions in the group.

Chi Alpha is a national student ministry organization with a presence in over 300 college campuses across the United States. According to the group’s website, Chi Alpha exists to “reconcile students to Christ, equipping them through Spirit-filled communities of prayer, worship, fellowship, discipleship and mission to transform the university, the marketplace and the world.”

On September 11, 2014, Chi Alpha’s chapter at California State University-Stanislaus was informed by the university that the group would no longer be recognized as a campus organization. The school accused the organization of religious discrimination and abruptly severed ties with the Christian group.

In a letter mailed last week to Cal State Stanislaus, Chi Alpha’s National Director, E. Scott Martin, explained that the Christian group was effectively “exiled from campus.”

“Within twenty-four hours, university personnel locked Chi Alpha students out of their reserved meeting space and forced them to hold their meetings off campus—in effect our Chi Alpha chapter was exiled from campus,” Martin wrote. “The harm from these incidents is ongoing, as it continues to affect Chi Alpha’s student members to this day.”

Chi Alpha was allegedly kicked off the Cal State Stanislaus campus because, although any student can become a member of the group, its leaders must affirm the organization’s Christian beliefs. University officials claim that this requirement violates the school’s non-discrimination policy.

“No campus shall recognize any fraternity, sorority, living group, honor society, or other student organization that discriminates on the basis of race, religion, national origin, ethnicity, color, age, gender, marital status, citizenship, sexual orientation, or disability,” states the university’s official policy.
