Meet one of Canada’s anti-abortion influencers (6 min)

Though this profile is by a decidedly left-wing outlet, it still can’t help highlight how impactful pro-life warrior Laura Klassen, and her friends, have been on behalf of the unborn. Klassen’s own videos, with her satiric takes on pro-choice “logic,” can be seen here, here, here, here, and here, and you can also check out her BC-based pro-life group Choice42.

It’s wrong to play the pronoun game

It’s not harmless to offer up your “preferred pronouns” and Christians mustn’t have any part of it.

Why Disney has gone woke (10-min read)

Why would a company that’s built around family viewing decide to double down on an LGBT agenda so many families oppose?

It’s because Disney’s new “customer base isn’t kids. It’s messed up adults.” Walt’s original “business model depended on a healthy national family” but today’s “shareholders are not going to bet on a growth segment in the American nuclear family that doesn’t exist. Betting on dysfunctional adults with sizable disposable incomes makes a whole lot more sense.” That’s why “60% of Disneyland visitors were adults with no children.”

“As Christians understand, material wealth is not the be-all and end-all of human existence, however:

  • Only market societies have generated wealth sufficient to meet the basic human needs of entire populations.
  • Only market societies have generated sufficient wealth to generate widespread and organized assistance for those unable to care for themselves.
  • Only market societies have generated sufficient wealth to promote other important human objectives, including nutrition and health, environmental protection, and even human happiness.”

22 minutes on the 2022 budget CBC comedians offer the humorous take, but for a more substantive look at the problem with debt see: Psalm 37:21, Prov. 22:7, and Prov. 13:22. It'll take Christians to argue against pedophilia If sexual orientation is untreatable (and thus conversion therapy is something to be banned)  then what argument does the world have to marshal against pedophilia? A Christian perspective on the ethical treatment of animals Biblical principles give us clear guidance here. "Can I marry my Mormon girlfriend?" If you're asked a question that can only be answered with painful honesty, what sort of answer should you give? A painful one. Unbeliever tries to find comfort in the Psalms Michael Ignatieff attended an event in which all 150 Psalms were sung and was greatly impacted... but couldn't figure out why. Woman in carpool lane claims personal pronouns are "they/them" (3 min) Reality: God defined it; the world denies it. So how can we expose their foolishness? Good questions that push them to define their imitation. Can feelings dictate reality? If two people are offended, which one is right? If feelings make a man a woman, what other realities can feelings determine? How about our race? Or gravity, can I identify as weightless? ...
