I don’t share enough good news, so here’s a fun one. This is a diaper company taking the sort of stand that any self-interested diaper company should logically take – give us more customers! But with all the doom and gloom about population these days, it’s probably brave for even a diaper company to come out in favor of babies.
While they hang their baby endorsement on a statement from agnostic Elon Musk, there’s also an uncredited voice-over recognizable as American’s favorite pastor, Billy Graham (or, possibly, his son Franklin). So while they could get bolder – let’s explicitly proclaim God’s truth as God‘s truth – these folk are certainly taking some baby steps in the right direction!
Way more teens are smoking way more marijuana than 10 years ago. And what they’re smoking is way more potent than what was around a generation ago. And it’s costing many teens their mental stability…
There’s been some good news on the state-sanctioned suicide front this week. On March 17 the “eligibility” of death-as-medicine was going to be expanded to include the mentally ill too. Rising costs have made it impossible to find a home? If that left you depressed, the government might have helped, not with more affordable housing, but a prescription of lethal drugs.
But on January 29, the federal health minister announced they would suspend, at least for now, this expansion. You can read more, and what to do about it at the Euthanasia Prevention Coalition, and ARPA Canada. To find out how we ever got here, read the longer article, from REAL Women of Canada, linked above.
“”Canadians deserve to know the truth,’ Federal Opposition leader Pierre Poilievre told reporters earlier this week, regarding 2021 claims made — but never investigated — of unmarked graves at the Kamloops, British Columbia Indian residential school.”
And there’s a new book out highlighting how the media, and some of our elected leaders, steered us wrong.
World traveler and sometime RP contributor Jonathon Van Maren was in Europe this past week to report on the massive farmer protests going on.
How did transgenderism shift so quickly from a fringe movement to something taught in our public schools and affirmed by almost all our political leaders? This documentary gets to some of it.
While narrator Christopher Rufo doesn’t frame it in specifically Christian terms, what he highlights is how transgenderism is seen by its proponents as more than simply surgery, more than a personal decision, more than a struggle some small minority have to deal with: leading proponents view it as an all-encompassing worldview from which we are to interpret all else. Susan Striker, one trans proponent, spoke of his transgender manifesto as a “secular sermon.” That gives us all the clue we should need as to how best to counter this movement. Not with Rufo’s equally secular response, in which he’s left confused enough to refer to Striker with female pronouns. No, what’s needed is our own sermon of sorts, but a spiritual one. We need to lead with the facts as God as defined them, that He defines our gender.
