Angelina Jolie, the Cancer Gene and the Death of a Friend

Angelina Jolie, the Cancer Gene and My Friend

Judge Twyla Gray Judge Twyla Gray sat opposite me twirling her fork in the salad on her plate.  She had just told me that she was going to have a prophylactic double mastectomy. Twyla, who was a cancer survivor, had learned that she carried the brca gene. This gene predisposed her to breast cancer. It had been decades since Twyla went through a lumpectomy, chemo and then radiation to treat a small cancer doctors found in one of her breasts. At the time she was diagnosed, Twyla put her … [Read More…]

Moore Tornado: Doing My Part

Tornados and Doing My Part

I grew up looking at the remnants of a tornado. It was an area of acreages and farmland that today is inner city. On the land next to our acreage, the remains of a roof rotted slowly back to the ground. The tornado had stripped it off a house and dumped it there. A half mile or so past that, a tilted grain silo sat where the same tornado had deposited it. It was about a mile from it’s original moorings.  That particular tornado happened before I was born, before my parents were married. They … [Read More…]

Late-Term Abortion: More Common Than We Know

 
 

 Leave a Comment

 

Kermit Gosnell isn’t the only late-term abortionist in this country. Most of us know about Gosnell/Tiller/Carhart. What we don’t realize is that many of our hospitals push late-term abortions on women for a variety of reasons. Any pregnant woman can fall prey to this. All she has to do is be pregnant with a baby that might have some sort of problem. The pressure intensifies if she’s doesn’t have money. I’ve heard these stories from the women themselves and from hospital personnel, … [Read More…]

What Is God’s Purpose for My Life?

I know people who search for “God’s plan” for their lives all the time. They spend days in prayer, “seeking the Lord” over what they should do next. I am not criticizing that or even commenting on it except to say that I know there are people who approach things this way. My way of walking with God is much more passive. My experience has been that if God wants me to do something, He’ll tell me. In fact, if God wants me to do something, He’ll pursue me. I won’t be able to get out of it. I’m …[Read More…]

Is the Shroud of Turin the Burial Cloth of Christ?

Is the Shroud of Turin the Burial Cloth of Christ?

I first read about the Shroud of Turin when I picked up a book about it in the library. I was deep in my anti-religion period at that time, struggling to find arguments against the existence of God. The interesting thing is that though I read most of the atheist literature of that time and earlier decades because I was seeking to be convinced, I never found it convincing. Since I’m neither a scholar nor an intellectual, I usually employ a vacuum cleaner approach to learning about a subject that interests me. I read everything I can get my hands … [Read More…]

Does Raising Boys to be Manly Christian Men Require Discriminating Against Girls?

Does Raising Boys to be Manly Christian Men Require Discriminating Against Girls?

I was jittery before I published Women and the Church yesterday.  I was afraid that, since I mentioned the presence of homosexual priests in our Church, I would stir up a hornet’s nest of attacks on homosexual priests. Silly me. Women are sooo much more the object of discrimination than homosexuals. No group of people on this planet can outrank women on the hated scale. I was inundated with comments from men (While I know there are women-hating women and lots of them, my commenters yesterday were ALL male) explaining basically two … [Read More…]
