But first . . .

One week you vote against protecting gay marriage, the next you attend your son’s gay wedding.

Kind of like voting against abortion — unless it’s your daughter who needs one.

(Fortunately, you can afford to send her to a state where the goal is to make abortion safe, legal, and rare.)

Speaking of which . . . Alabama pastor David Barnhart opines:

“The unborn” are a convenient group of people to advocate for. They never make demands of you; they are morally uncomplicated, unlike the incarcerated, addicted, or the chronically poor; they don’t resent your condescension or complain that you are not politically correct; unlike widows, they don’t ask you to question patriarchy; unlike orphans, they don’t need money, education, or childcare; unlike aliens, they don’t bring all that racial, cultural, and religious baggage that you dislike; they allow you to feel good about yourself without any work at creating or maintaining relationships; and when they are born, you can forget about them, because they cease to be unborn. It’s almost as if, by being born, they have died to you. You can love the unborn and advocate for them without substantially challenging your own wealth, power, or privilege, without re-imagining social structures, apologizing, or making reparations to anyone. They are, in short, the perfect people to love if you want to claim you love Jesus but actually dislike people who breathe.

Prisoners? Immigrants? The sick? The poor? Widows? Orphans? All the groups that are specifically mentioned in the Bible? They all get thrown under the bus for the unborn.

And now . . .

The Myth Of Putin As World Energy Czar Is Running Out Of Gas.  

What a mess he has made for the world — and his own people.
