  • After the Supreme Court Decision—Is Polygamy Next?

    by Larry Spargimino

    polygamy-340x170Evil has a way of snowballing. The recent Supreme Court decision making same-sex marriage a constitutional right has opened the door to polygamy, and practically every other kind of “marital” arrangement. Chief Justice Roberts’ dissent to the court’s decision called attention to this:

    “Although the majority randomly inserts the adjective ‘two’ in various places, it offers no reason at all why the two-person element of the core definition of marriage may be preserved while the man-woman element may not. Indeed, from the standpoint of history and tradition, a leap from opposite-sex marriage to same-sex marriage is much greater than one from a two-person union to plural unions.”

  • Changing the Definition of Marriage: More Than Meets the Eye

    The amazing thing about changing time-tested definitions is that they often backfire on those who are doing the changing. If we change the definition of marriage to include a man and a man, why not expand the definition to include a man, a man, and a man?

    Or, as commentator Michael Brown asks, “If love is love and marriage equality is the goal, why can’t any possible combination of people, and maybe an animal or too, be considered ‘marriage?’”

    Just a few years ago, commentators who saw great peril in the move to legitimize same-sex marriage were considered alarmists. We were told that what we feared might happen, could never possibly happen.

    It was predicted that fines, lawsuits, and crushing penalties would be imposed. We were right. It has happened.

  • Choosing Death—A New Way to Escape Your Problems

    by Larry Spargimino

    vialsIt is a basic teaching of Christianity that life is a gift of God. Even individuals do not have authority over their own lives—only God does. To take one’s own life, or to participate in a procedure where someone else takes one’s life, even with that individual’s permission, is an affront on God’s authority.

    In our modern age, when God is either ignored, denied, or made party to our worst actions, there are many challenges to these principles. One of the boldest is Belgium’s highly controversial euthanasia law. Even healthy young adults, people without life-threatening afflictions or terminal diseases, can choose to die. Often those who are depressed and don’t feel life is worth living can ask to be put to death. The option offered to patients is not treatment, but death.

    In a recent PBS presentation titled, “The right to die in Belgium: an inside look at the world’ most liberal euthanasia law,” we are informed that Belgium has established a 16-person euthanasia commission. Eight are medical doctors, and eight are attorneys. Medical doctors who have taken a human life must file a report with the commission showing why they did what they did. The commission reviews the reports to be sure conditions set by law were met. In the worst case, a doctor could face homicide charges.

    Unhappy: North Korean leader Kim Jong Un (R) smiles next to his wife Ri Sol Ju as he gives field guidance at the new terminal of Pyongyang International Airport Unhappy: North Korean leader Kim Jong Un (R) smiles next to his wife Ri Sol Ju as he gives field guidance at the new terminal of Pyongyang International Airport

    Most people have had some disagreements with their builder. Maybe the lady of the house doesn’t like the kitchen, or dad thinks there’s not enough room for his workbench in the garage. Most likely, none of these disagreements has led to an execution. Not so for North Korea, however.

    Mirror.co.uk reports that North Korean leader Kim Jong Un has executed the new airport’s architect because “Father Kim” didn’t like the design.

  • Asia Bibi—Update

    Pakistani Christian Asia Bibi Pakistani Christian Asia Bibi

    In 2010, Asia Bibi, mother of five, was sentenced to death for apostasy. Her specific “crime”: drinking water out of the same vessel used by her Muslim co-workers.

    Her co-workers claimed she had insulted Prophet Muhammad when she was told she could not drink from the vessel.

    Bibi is now 50 and suffering from numerous health problems, including intestinal bleeding. Her family says she is so weak she has difficulty walking.

    Phelim Kine, deputy director of Human Rights Watch’s Asia Division said: “Asia Bibi is an exemplar of a gross miscarriage of injustice rooted in Pakistan’s extremely unfair blasphemy laws and of how this law can victimize someone who should not be inside the criminal justice system whatsoever.”

  • Judicial Activism— We Were Warned!

    Author and historian Bill Federer Author and historian Bill Federer

    Many expected the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision on same-sex marriage. The four dissenters were the heroes. Truth is not dead, and neither is the family. However, this brings us to a new and serious downgrade in American history.

    Historian, author, and conference speaker Bill Federer has a daily column, the “American Minute.” On June 28, 2015, his American Minute was titled “Is America Ruled By Supreme ‘Despots’?”

    He opens with the question: “Have the 50 states been reduced to one United STATE run by 5 supreme despots?”

    On September 28, 1820, Thomas Jefferson warned in a letter to William Jarvis: “You seem … to consider the judges as the ultimate arbiters of all constitutional questions; a very dangerous doctrine indeed, and one which would place us under the DESPOTISM of an oligarchy.”

  • Tunisia Terror Attack: Satan Is Alive and Well on Planet Earth

    Someone once told this commentator, “I believe in God. He has left His footprints everywhere; but I don’t believe in Satan. He is no more real than the boogeyman of our childhood fears.”

    Every day, news reports show that Satan is alive and well on planet earth. We may think that Satan is a joke, a medieval myth, a hangover from a pre-scientific age. However, John 8:44 says that Satan was “a murderer from the beginning … for he is a liar, and the father of it.”

    Are there any lies circulating today that are producing mayhem, death and destruction?

    The mirror.co.uk for June 30, 2015, had both text and photos of the Tunisian hotel killer Seifeddine Rezqui showing childhood photos of a happy, fun-loving boy who turned into a killing machine.

    According to WorldNetDaily, “An extreme leftist organization has issued what critics contend is a ‘starter’ kit for jihadists and a ‘hit list’ that paints a target on the backs of a dozen high-profile women who are outspoken in their opposition to jihad and Shariah law.”

    The reports indicate “the list, which includes unflattering sketches of the ladies it vilifies, is titled ‘Women Against Islam’ and was compiled by Mark Potok and Janet Smith of the Southern poverty Law Center or SPLC.”

  • Does the Supreme Court Have the Authority and Wisdom to Redefine Marriage?

    The president of the Southern Baptist Convention has a message regarding the looming Supreme Court decision on same-sex marriage: We will not obey.

    Ronnie Floyd, president of the Southern Baptist Convention, said: “The Supreme Court of the United States is not the final authority nor is the culture itself. The Bible is God’s final authority on marriage, and on his book we will stand.”

    Dr. Floyd gave a fiery presentation and reminded the gathering of something German pastor and theologian Dietrich Bonhoeffer once said: “Silence in the face of evil is evil itself: God will not hold us guiltless. Not to speak is to speak. Not to act is to act.”

  • The Scars of Abortion—On Men

    by Larry Spargimino

    Sad Man

    Much has been written on how abortion harms mothers, both physically and psychologically. However, not much has been written on the effects of abortion on men.

    Eric Metaxis, writing for Breakpoint, reminds us of how many dads have been blessed on Father’s Day. And then he adds: “But for some fathers out there, Father’s Day is a day of pain—a reminder of an ugly event in their lives: The day their unborn children were aborted. As astonishing as it may seem, according to the experts, fathers of aborted children often feel even worse than mothers.”
