Using Your Head

is necessary to solve problems. Here is a series of propositions that lead to the solution of whether or not abortion is justified in the case of rape:

Challenging a La Presse journalist on the logic of his pro-abort stance:

  1. Every species on Earth can only reproduce after its own kind (for example, rabbits can only give birth to other rabbits, dogs can only give birth to puppies, etc.).

  2. Therefore, a fetus is of human nature.

  3. The fetus is clearly alive, as witnessed by its continual growth, its need for nutrition and hydration, its beating heart, its brain waves, etc.

  4. From 2 and 3, we deduce that the fetus is alive and human.

  5. The fetus has a distinct and unique human DNA, different from its mother and from any other human being.

  6. The fetus has all the components to develop into a complete and independent human organism.

  7. From 4, 5 and 6, we deduce that a fetus is a living human being distinct from its mother.

  8. Intentionally ending the life of an innocent living human being is a grave injustice.

  9. Abortion ends the life of the fetus.

  10. From 8 and 9, we deduce that abortion is a grave injustice.

  11. While rape is a grave injustice towards the woman, this tragedy does not alter points 1 through 10.

  12. Therefore, we deduce that aborting a fetus conceived through rape remains a grave injustice, as per 10.

Six Impossible Things

to believed it you're an atheist:

Alice, Atheists, and the Ability to Believe Impossible Things:

“Alice laughed: “There’s no use trying,” she said; “one can’t believe impossible things.”

“I daresay you haven’t had much practice,” said the Queen. “When I was younger, I always did it for half an hour a day. Why, sometimes I’ve believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.” — Alice in Wonderland

More Evidence

that the MSM is heavily filtering the news to promote their world-view:


I did not know this stuff....

...which, apparently, is the point of the news media's practice of suppressing news reports about leftist violence:

While the media is all over the recent bombing attempt in Times Square, they quickly swept the 2008 bombing of the Times Square military recruiting station under the rug. The hometown New York Times relegated the terror attack to regional news, even

Spiritual Alzheimers

That is a wonderful phrase from Cardinal Dias that you will find at the end of this post:

Traditionally-minded Anglican bishops ready to come to Rome:

Everyone should be calling Benedict XVI "The Pope of Christian Unity". 

His provisions for traditionally-minded Anglicans issued in the Motu Proprio Anglicanorum coetibus are concrete demonstrations of his desire to bring separated Christians into unity with the Catholic fold.

Toyota Versus Gardasil

We have enjoyed our car for the last eight years. The panic over sticking accelerators hasn't affected our conviction that overall Toyotas are safer and more reliable. But where does Gardasil come in?

THIS IS STAGGERING! [Rachel Watkins]


Are you ready to buy a Toyota yet? I'm not to sure.

Have you gotten a Gardisil vaccination for yourself, your daughter? I have not but have received some pressure from some who think I should.
I will not feel any guilty any more -

Toyota 52 deaths, Gardasil 49. Toyota recalled.

There is no press, no ongoing meetings before Congress, no fines being levied.

Women are seemingly less important to our country than we imagine.
