Study Shows Homosexual Parenting Not Equal to Heterosexual Parenting |

This will never make the news.  But it’s the most news-worthy article I’ve read all week.

“The greatest negative outcomes were found among children of lesbian mothers. This contradicts defective studies popularized by the media claiming children fare as well, or better, with lesbian mothers. Regnerus’ study showed negative outcomes for these adult children in 25 of 40 categories including far higher rates of sexual assault (23% of children with lesbian mothers were touched sexually by a parent or adult, in contrast to 2% raised by married parents), poorer physical health, increased depression, increased marijuana use and higher unemployment (69% of children from lesbian households were on welfare, compared to 17% of those with married parents).”

Review: FOR GREATER GLORY (2012)

Posted on Updated on

I had the privilege of attending the midnight premiere of the NewLand Films production of “For Greater Glory:, a story about the Cristeros in 1917 and their uprising against the federal government in response to the declarations made against the Catholic Church. (Sound familiar yet?)

With a stellar cast of big names and new faces, the story begins with the reading of the declaration by El Presidente Calles, played by Reubén Blades: “The Mexican government mandates that all foreign-born clergy be sent back to their countries, for Mexico will not listen to their lies about our government. Any remaining clergy who speak out against the government will not be tolerated.” The clergy are brought forward in droves and “dealt with accordingly”, you might say, and the audience explores with each character what it would mean to find courage and stand up for your beliefs. A snippet of advice given to the young boy sums up the entire Cristero movement in one line: “Who are you, if you do not stand up for what you believe in?”

Who are we indeed.

Follow the stories of the Cristeros and of little José Sánchez del Río as they learn what it means to stand up for religious freedom to the point of …. well, you’ll have to watch the movie.

“What should I tell my kids about sex?” | Simcha Fisher.

Most important parts:
“There is so much here that one thing is clear: there is no such thing as The Talk, singular.”

“This education has to begin at an early age, in an age-appropriate way. One reader sums it up this way: “5-year-olds need to understand what modesty is, and why our bodies need to be given an appropriate amount of respect. 7-year-olds need to be able to ask questions (and get answers) when they see “weird” magazine covers at the grocery store. 10-year-olds need to have some understanding of their biology. And so on. I don’t think there is an age that is too early to plant the seeds of modesty, purity, and chastity because it involves so much more than [sexual intercourse]. It is ultimately ordered to charity and the basic understanding that all people are created in the image and likeness of God.””

The whole article is worth the read.

First Time Ever I Saw Your Face | GE ad.

Chills.  I have chills.

I wish this ad were still on the air!

The first time ever I saw your face I thought the sun rose in your eyes
And the moon and the stars were gifts you gave to the dark and the endless skies

The first time ever I kissed your mouth
I felt the earth move in my hands
Like the trembling heart of a captive bird
That was then at my command
My love

The first time ever I lay with you
I felt your heart so close to mine
And I knew our joy would fill the earth
And last til the end of time
My love
The first time ever I saw your face
Your face
Your face
Your face
