Abortion Fact Sheet
From Summit Ministries. A one-pager, with quotes, resources, bibliography and organizations.

Abortion: Politically Correct Death
By Francis Beckwith. Answers arguments put forth by abortionists.

Abortion: Question & Answer
By Dr. Jack Wilke and his wife Barbara. An entire book being put on-line by Ohio Right to Life.

If You Call Yourself Pro-Life, Who Did You Vote for in 1996?

Of Lettuces and Cow-Humans
By Dr. Carl Wieland, in Creation Ex Nihilo, 9(4): 27-30. "If you don't think there are Frankensteins sitting in the world's laboratories playing God, I think you don't really understand what's going on."

Pretzel Logic
From Breakpoint by Chuck Colson. Sacrificing euthanasia to save abortion?

The TRUTH About the Legal Status of Abortion
From U.S.T.P. vice-presidental candidate Herb Titus. The amazingly simple fact - as anyone familiar with the Constitution should already know - is that abortion is still illegal and Roe v. Wade in no way affects the laws that have been on the books since before the infamous decision. This is not rocket science, folks.

Ultimate Pro-Life Resource List
Bills itself as "The most comprehensive listing of right to life resources on the internet."

When Does Human Life Begin?
Excellent article on the continuing reductions in the age of "viability," when a child can survive outside the womb.

Suggested Reading: I recommend Dr. Bernard Nathanson's book, The Hand of God; Dr. Nathanson is the former abortionist who killed over thirty thousand children and co-founded the National Abortion Rights Action League (NARAL, the chief pro-abort group). Like Carol Everett (the former abortion mill franchise owner), he awoke to what he was doing and has become a pro-life leader (and later a Christian).

Christianity and Patriotism

Christianity and Political Correctness

Clinton: A Man to Be Trusted?

A Missing Amendment to the U.S. Constitution?

Morality and Politics

The New State Religion: Atheism
Impact #257, by Dr. Jerry Bergman. In case you hadn't noticed, the First Amendment prohibition against the establishment of a national religion has been effectively trashed and for most intents and purposes we now have a State Religion to whom all must pay fealty. Try to practice any other religion publicly and the New Inquisition, the ACLU, will be on your back faster than lightning...

Breakpoint article by Chuck Colson.

Tax Dollars and Little Green Men
From ChristianAnswers.Net. Millions of taxpayer dollars have been used by evolutionists on their pet projects. It's one thing to believe in something and support it with your own money, but should government really be forcing people to support all kinds of projects they may be opposed or indifferent to?

From ChristianAnswers.Net. Many children today are taught the Pilgrims at Plymouth Rock were giving thanks to the Indians for their help. Who were they really thanking? Hint: what do you think "pilgrim" means in the first place?

On the 10th Amendment, a key piece of the struggle to restore the Republic.

What Role Should Christianity and the Bible Play in Our Government?

Your Children Should Be Government Chattel
At least, that's what so-called "experts" and folks like Hilary Clinton preach. This article summarizes events like the government-mandated mass child molestation incident in Pennsylvania in 1995 (What!? Your local liberal news media forgot to tell you about that??) and a Government raid on a home-schooling family. Whatever gave you the idea that you have responsibility for your children?...

By Steven Kossor.

Developmentalism and Self-Esteem
By Steven Kossor.

Does the State Have a Compelling Interest?
By Samuel Blumenfeld.

Educational Tyranny: HR 1617
Are you a being created by God, of infinite worth with inalienable rights? Or an economic resource to be manipulated "for the good of the [Almighty] State"? HR 1617, passed in 1995, provides a frightening glimpse into the Orwellian world of what we might call hyper-communism...

The Freedom Movement
By Samuel Blumenfeld.

Home Schooling Sites
List at Dave Ihms' site.

Tangled Web
By Joseph Esposito. Congress has already passed "school-to-work" legislation that mandates federal government command and control of the economy - and your career. From what I can tell, this is the system that would have made Isaac Einstein a janitor for his entire life. Think communism is dead? What's that I see heading our way?

Of Lettuces and Cow-Humans
By Dr. Carl Wieland, in Creation Ex Nihilo, 9(4): 27-30. (A more recent CEN article reports that one sickening possibility mentioned in this article - of humans learning to eat and enjoy human fetuses - is now true; they are reported to be the hottest new gourmet dish in parts of China.)

On Eagles' Wings

Quotations from Answers in Genesis

U.S. Taxpayers Party
I first heard of the U.S.T.P. when hard-headed Washington political commentator Jane Chastain did an editorial commentary for Crawford Broadcasting Co. Jane was absolutely gushing with enthusiasm for this party and the heroic stand it is taking. Please understand, Jane never gushes about anything! This is the party worthy of the mantle of the Founders of the American Republic, and none other. They are our last, best chance for a peaceful return to a Constitutional Republic.

World Magazine
A weekly news magazine, one that is worth reading for a change. Stop supporting humanism, drop your subscriptions to leftist propaganda pieces like Time, U.S. News & World Report, Newsweek and other secular periodicals and subscribe to World instead.

Persecution of Christians

See also the Internation News of Interest to Christians for many recent reports from around the world.

[NCGUB: Unlawful Executions Extra-judicial, Summary or Arbitrary Executions If we captured Karen soldiers we never kept them alive. We killed them. The NCOs didn't even interrogate them, they just said, 'Pray to .. [At] Link to plight of the Christian Karen tribesmen in Burma.]

A Biblical Perspective on Persecution
What the Bible teaches us about persecution.

Children Being Sold as Slaves
Report on the resurgence of slavery in Sudan, where 3 million Christians and other non-Muslims are estimated to have been murdered by genocide since 1992. Excuse me, secular media, where are you? How many died in Bosnia-Herzegovinia? A quarter million?...

Iran, Examples of Persecution in,
Obviously, it should come as no surprise that this state, ruled by fanatical Islamicists, is trying to stamp out Christians.

The Karen of Burma
The Karen tribesmen of Burma have waged the longest struggle for freedom in this century. Learn more about this largely Christian minority and the war crimes committed against them by the evil SLORC government. And what's with the treachery of the Buddhist Karen? (Learn more at the Karen National Union page, an example of recent actions by DKBA soldiers and Buddhist monks is described here. This is another example.)

Soldiers Destroy Christian Complex Near Cairo

Sudan: Widespread Enslavement and Gunpoint "Conversions" to Islam
From a U.S. Government report. Did you think classical slavery had died out? Can you imagine being a refugee and being deliberately starved by government authorities withholding food because you will not renounce Christ and adopt Islam? Since the establishment of a brutal Islamic military government, southern Christians and other non-Islamic peoples have faced severe oppression. Civil war has only made matters worse, with the rebels no better than the government and private Islamic zealots. In the meantime, the Clinton administration consistently looks the other way, as the Bush administration did before them. Why are Clinton and Bush so eager to spend millions and American blood helping Muslims in Somalia, Kuwait and Bosnia - while pointedly ignoring much greater Christian suffering elsewhere?

Other Sudan links: The Islamic Gulag: Slavery Makes a Comeback in Sudan, Amnesty International Criticism: Where is the UN in Sudan??, U.S. State Department Report(Filled with detailed information and examples, see part "C" for persecution.) Since our government knows what is going on, why doesn't it act with the same initiative as it does for other (i.e., oil-rich and/or Islamic) areas?

The Suffering Church
From Breakpoint by Chuck Colson; discussing the link between Indonesian donations, the Clinton administration, and warming relations with Indonesia's anti-Christian dictator.

Testimonies of Persecuted Christians

Voice of the Martyrs

"Will No One Hear the Screams?"
"President Clinton and the media are ignoring Arab Muslim and Asian communist violence against Christians." By Tom Hess.

Why Does Islam Persecute Christianity?
By Patrick Sookhdeo. When Christians treat others poorly for their misguided religious beliefs (such as the Crusades), it is a direct violation the God's law and biblical teaching. Unfortunately the same is not true of the Koran and the doctrine of Jihad, holy war against the infidel.


Black Theology, Black Power, and the Black Experience
By Dr. Ron Rhodes.

Evolution and Racism
From Impact #164, by Paul Humber, M.S., M.Div. Evil beliefs produce evil fruits, and racism is inherent in evolutionary belief.

A true story about Davy Crockett. Why is it sinful to use government money to help those in need?

I also strongly encourage folks to study Dr. Marvin Olasky's work, The Tragedy of American Compassion. It reminds us that not every welfare system in history has been the disaster that ours has been. Learn what America has forgotten.

What cha thinking, doing the things you do
Whose opinions are ya listening to
Justifying you turn it all to gray
Synhronizing to society's ways
Society has gotten to be all out of whack
And don't bother with excuses whether white or black
to blame it on color won't get a result
Because history reveals to me how ethics were lost
In reality our decency has taken a plunge
In God We Trust is an American pun
Funny how it happened so subtly

Quick Quiz: What Right-Wing Extremist Said the Following to Congress?

"Firearms stand next in importance to the Constitution itself. They are the American people's liberty teeth and keystone under independence. From the hour the Pilgrims landed, to the present day, events occurences and tendencies prove that to ensure peace, security and happiness, the rifle and pistol are equally indispensable. The very atmosphere of firearms everywhere restrains evil interference - they deserve a place of honor with all that's good."
