The Two Kinds of Romantic Love

Gene Veith: “One kind of romantic love leads to life–to marriage, fruitful sexuality, children, family, virtue. The other kind of romantic love leads to death–to sin, sterile sexuality, abortion, family destruction, ruin.”

Unborn Babies Are Only Human When They Belong to Beyonce

Matt Walsh says this well: “I fear that, rather than being an exception to our culture’s pro-abortion philosophy, this celebration is simply another product of it. Leftists believe that Beyonce’s babies are real human beings not because all babies are human beings, but because Beyonce’s babies are human beings. It’s got nothing to do with their inherit value, but with Beyonce’s value, which is greater than all other forms of life on Earth combined.”

A Rescued Refugee Returns to Africa with the Gospel (Video)

    Why Didn’t You Tell Me?

    If you have spent any time at all on YouTube, you have probably seen videos of people hearing for the first time or people seeing color for the first time—videos of people who, through the miracles of modern science, have senses restored that had either been missing altogether or that had become dull through illness…
