Historical Revisionism – There seems to be a movement out there that is trying to prove that just about every major historical figure was homosexual. The latest target, as you may know, is none other than Abraham Lincoln. C.A. Tripp, an associate professor of psychiatry at the State University of New York and a man who worked closely with Alfred Kinsey, is releasing a book next month entitled The Intimate World of Abraham Lincoln in which he portrays Lincoln as being gay…as in homosexual. He has apparently gathered all sorts of data, ranging from the fact that Lincoln and his friend shared a bed for several years since both were quite poor, to the statement of his stepmother who said “he never took much interest in the girls.” “I think that his homosexuality was not noticed by either his wife, or many of his friends, which is one reason why we are only finding out about it today,” Baker said. Of course the more likely story is that never in history has anyone felt the need to defend other people’s aberrant behavior by showing that “he did it too!” I hope there are people out there capable and willing enough defend such a great man as Lincoln.
Morgentaler: The Movie – Henry Morgentaler is Canada’s foremost abortionist. Isn’t that a title you would like to carry with you when you depart the earth and go to meet your Maker? CTV, a Canadian television station, has prepared a movie about the man and will be premiering it on January 5. This is clearly a tribute to the mass-murderer. “The two-hour biopic recounts the tumultuous life story of Henry Morgentaler, a man who led the controversial movement that ultimately changed abortion laws in Canada.” Morgentaler, when asked about the movie, said “This is my legacy to Canada, and I’m flattered to have been approached about the film as a record of my achievements. I’m happy to have played a part in the changes to the abortion law and the excellent facilities in this country so that women may have the right to make a decision about their own pregnancy and are treated with dignity and respect.” Or, to interpret that, he said “I’m happy to have personally killed or have been involved in killing millions of innocent lives. This is my legacy.” In a brief interview, God said “Children are a heritage from the Lord, the fruit of the womb is a reward.” I hope Morgentaler trembles when he considers his eternity. May God be gracious and save him before it is too late.
Hero In Fallujah – War brings out the best and the worst in people. Human Events Online has a touching article about a man who gave his life for his comrades during the fighting in Fallujah just a few short weeks ago. Already injured, he was lying on the floor of a house when a grenade came rolling in, having been tossed by the enemy. Without hesitation he threw himself on top of that grenade, saving the lives of many of his fellow soldiers. You can read the inspiring story here.
I Got Pwned! – If you came by at just the right time yesterday you may have noticed that my site got hacked. Someone managed to work his way in, erase the main page, and leave a message telling me I got pwned (Internet speak for owned). I have no idea why someone would target me, but fortunately damage was minimal and I got the site back up very quickly. I’ve changed all the passwords, so hopefully it won’t happen again!
