Scott Phillip Roeder

On May 31, 2009, Scott Roeder walked into the Reformation Lutheran Church in Wichita, Kansas, waited for the right opportunity, and shot and killed George Tiller. He has confessed to it numerous times, and today, he basically hung himself in Court. During the trial, Roeder’s defense attorneys tried to present a defense that would hopefully […]

Commentary on capital punishment

I am in favor of capital punishment. I will say that up front: I’m in favor of the death penalty. I’ve been in favor of it all my life; it’s not something that is going to change readily. Now there are a lot of arguments and misconceptions against capital punishment. I’ve heard quite a few […]

A forgotten case on abortion

Typically when discussing abortion, many in both the "pro-life" and "pro-choice" camps tend to focus on the infamous Roe v. Wade, 410 US 113 (1973).

Don’t be narrow focused on health care reform

I work in the health care industry and have worked in the health care industry for the last 4 years, minus a stretch of unemployment.

Around shy of three minutes through the clip, Glenn mentions a blog post by Newsbusters.org in which far-left commentator Mike […]

Many in the political arena, especially the bloggers and commentators, saw this as a "referendum on health care", or a "41st vote" in the […]

The United States was founded by Christians

One thing that always irks me is when atheists use the argument “this country wasn’t founded by Christians”. And the one thing that irks me the most about these arguments, from either side, is how they always argue about the Founding Fathers and the Framers of the Constitution. And the reason it irks me is […]

Why is the pro-life movement going after contraception?

Back in November I watched a documentary on the pro-life movement in the United States called Unborn in the USA (Rent it on Netflix). It is nothing more than video footage of various interviews with those who are against abortion along with footage of demonstrations, rallies, and confrontations. On Netflix, I rated the documentary 3 […]

The Bill of Rights and Immigrants

Question: Does the Bill of Rights apply to immigrants? Recently I’ve been getting into some interesting discussions with my cousin’s husband. Many of these discussions tend to involve abortion, as he is adamantly “pro-life”, but recently he made some comments regarding the Constitution and its applicability, or lack thereof, to non-citizens. First, to say the […]
