Men need to get a grip – and a spine. As ridiculous corn-loving farm boys in Iowa stand by and let the homosexual community trample on matrimony, two women are speaking out on issues that are just as big: abortion and Obama at Notre Dame. For those men out there too scared to do what’s right, it’s time to listen in and join the fight.
It’s time to be men.
According to the Associated Press, “Harvard University law professor Mary Ann Glendon says in a letter to the school president that giving Obama an honorary degree violates the U.S. bishops' 2004 statement that Catholic institutions shouldn't honor people whose actions conflict with the church's moral principles.” Because of this, she has rejected Notre Dame’s highest honor, the Laetare Medal!
Hats off to Mary Ann Glendon!
In case you didn’t know, she was the ambassador to the Vatican during President Bush’s last year in office. As of late, her position is becoming harder and harder to fill as the Vatican won’t accept an ambassador who is pro-abortion. It seems Obama can’t find any pro-lifers to fill the vacancy. But that shouldn’t surprise us as he couldn’t seem to find anyone who paid their taxes either, much less find anyone who supported human rights to send to the Vatican.
In other news, Kathy Ireland, a former super model, joins ranks with Ms. California in opposing moral evils that are becoming more and more accepted by society. In Ireland’s case, the issue is abortion. I’d sum up her words, but I think they speak for themselves:
“My entire life I was pro-choice — who was I to tell another woman what she could or couldn’t do with her body? But when I was 18, I became a Christian and I dove into the medical books, I dove into science… What I read was astounding and I learned that at the moment of conception a new life comes into being. The complete genetic blueprint is there, the DNA is determined, the blood type is determined, the sex is determined, the unique set of fingerprints that nobody has had or ever will have is already there."
“I called Planned Parenthood and begged them to give me their best argument and all they could come up with that it is really just a clump of cells and if you get it early enough it doesn’t even look like a baby.”
“Well, we’re all clumps of cells and the unborn does not look like a baby the same way the baby does not look like a teenager, a teenager does not look like a senior citizen. That unborn baby looks exactly the way human beings are supposed to look at that stage of development. It doesn’t suddenly become a human being at a certain point in time. I’ve also asked leading scientists across our country to please show me some shred of evidence that the unborn is not a human being. I didn’t want to be pro-life, but this is not a woman’s rights issue but a human rights issue."
Hats off to Kathy Ireland!
For too long we’ve let the media and the Far Left control the conversation on the most important issues of our day. Enough is enough. We can’t allow ourselves to be bullied but rather we should take the fight head on! We must vocally support those who speak out against the hideous evils undermining the fabric of our great nation. What’s more, we need to learn the truths and ask the Holy Spirit to help us boldly proclaim them!
