The Protest of a Protestant Minister Against Birth Control

July 19, 2008

The Protest of a Protestant Minister Against Birth Control

by Rev. Matthew Trewhella


Sunlight was just beginning to break over the darkness of the morning as my wife and I headed toward the entrance of the cold brick-faced building. Fear and apprehension gripped me each step of the way. A thousand questions and thoughts raced through my mind. “How much pain will there be? Why the heck did I ever do this in the first place? Maybe I should just leave.” Read the rest of this entry »


Babies For Jihad!

July 13, 2008

From Jihad Watch: Babies for Jihad!

ISLAMABAD (Reuters) – About 2,000 Islamist women gathered at the radical Red Mosque in the Pakistani capital on Wednesday and vowed to raise their children for holy war, days after a suicide bomber killed 18 people after a similar rally.

Chanting slogans of “jihad is our way”, burqa-clad women, some with babies, listened to fiery speeches from the daughter of the mosque’s jailed cleric on the eve of the anniversary of a commando raid on the complex in which more than 100 people died.  (READ ALL)

Ultimately, this is how they WILL win if they do.

They have children, we have utterly rejected our fertility in favor of comfort.

The next time you see a large family rather than make some smart alec comment about “You know what causes that, don’t you?” or “Get cable already!”

THANK THEM and pray for them.


Young White Couples

May 31, 2008

First see Christian Lander’s latest offering at Stuff White People Like: “White people in the News, May 30, 2008”

TOPIC THIS COULD ALSO COVER (FUTURE SUGGESTION):

*White people like child-bearing in late 30’s early 40s.
*White people like to be “young” for indefinite periods of time that would otherwise seem arbitrary or at the very best “pushing it”.

The “young couple” in the photo –  her: 30s,  him: 40s.

Bring on the “Hill-billy” jokes if you like, but where I come from a “young couple” is a “young couple” if and when both are under 24/25ish.

Advanced white people understand you should not have children until you are confident you can afford strollers as big as VW Bugs and gentrified homes…  SUPER-Advanced white people understand that it is ideal for your one child to be headed to a liberal arts college for an arts degree right about the time you are ready to collect social security… Not a frightful idea in their mind – the 60s are the new 40s to them.

God bless Viagra & Cialis…

White people, eh? What are ya gonna do?

Children Hold Us Back!

April 18, 2008

Recently in another forum I have been discussing the matter of marriage and family life within my cohort – 30something post-ethnic Caucasian kids from the burbs…

I have come to the decision that in life, most of us feel we deserve:

*  to have a string of long term relationships in our 20s that involve cohabitation and long painful break ups

* after years of sterile sex and non-commitment before

* a three-year engagement culminating in a 30something marriage,

* buying a house far bigger than we need with lip service to being in a “good school district”,

* and a view to one of the rooms making a good nursery but

* turning it into an office for the first few years because

* we need to wait a few years to have kids

* and “enjoy each other”,

* before we put “our life on hold” to have 2 children – one of which is a difficult pregnancy in our late 30s

* and 20 some years later “put our lives on hold again” to take care of our aging parents.

We deserve and need these things.  New couples should have a house payment that is 30-40% of their combined income and she should work to help pay for that house in the good school district before “putting her life on hold” to be a mom which – sadly – detracts from career opportunities where real meaning in life comes from.  Having kids means we can’t have these things, we might not afford cable, we might not get a grad degree, we might not be able to afford that bigger house or have a new car every time we pay off the old one… 

It is a punishment to get off that treadmill! 

You, back to work! – You have a lot to accomplish before you have that one kid who is too much trouble!

Stem That Brown Tide!

April 3, 2008

Our venerable brethren over at Youth Reform tipped me off to this post great over at Dawn Patrol: Around the world with Planned Parenthood. Surf by and check it out.

This topic always reminds me of the P.J. O’Rourke’s humorous tome All the Trouble in the World: The Lighter Side of Overpopulation, Famine, Ecological Disaster, Ethnic Hatred, Plague, and Poverty his chapter on over population Just Enough of Me, Way Too Much of You is as true as it is funny.

The secularist obsession with “stemming the brown tide” seems to not be so much invited as foisted. Good reason for it, it makes good money! Read the rest of this entry »

More Condoms = More Better?

March 16, 2008

In the combox of a recent article over at the venerable blog Creative Minority Report, a reader writes:

condom.gif

“The sorrow is that few know that condoms (leaving aside morality) are only “protective” if adequately shipped and stored. The latex perforates in heat (in the back of a semi). These perforation are so minute you don’t see them, but the nasty STDs get through. Worse, AIDS virus is so small it goes through the latex easily. “

Of course I agree… It is all true enough… But would that it were just that simple and easy! There is more to is still!

If the failure rate was the only problem, the Sexual Revolutionaries would then only have to lobby for more funding and research into better product design, transportation and storage. Maybe, if push comes to shove, they could just advise those in the joyful throws of “modern company keeping” to “double bag it!”

BUT (big “but” here) all the titanium condoms in all the world aren’t going to do a good deal to change the reality on the ground just reported by the CDC – that ONE in FOUR teenage girls has an STD

(“Really?” sez you! “Really!” sez me!)

WHY?

The dirty little non-secret is that for many of them, the venereal diseases they contracted (21%+ HPV& Herpes combined infection) they could and would still contract. Even if condoms were 100% stored correctly, 100% break free… well they would still be getting HPV (which is transmitted skin-to-skin, not via seminal fluid) and still exponentially increasing their chances for cervical cancer as well cervical cancer, as well as anal cancer, vulvar cancer, penile cancer and infertility as a result. Neither of HPV nor Herpes is curable as both are viruses…

(We can save for another day the fallacies that current HPV vaccines on the market prevent all HPV – they protext against a limited number of strains… Mostly focussing on the strains that lead to visible wards. Perons who get the vaccine may never see warts, but could easily become part of the population infected with the other strains… What you can’t see, eh?) Read the rest of this entry »


“Bitches Ain’t Shit”

March 15, 2008

Two Canadian Women Die from Use of Contraceptive Patch; Sixteen More Suffer Blood Clots

This story reminds me of a reference Dr. Janet Smith made to the development of “The Pill” in her landmark speach made – where else? – here in the Holy Land of Ohio over a decade ago at the Josephinum called Contraception, Why Not?. As she pulls no punches in telling, in the efforts to divorce sex from procreation, and this isn’t much talked about, but a “pill” had been developped for men.Research on that ended when test subjects noticed minor reversible testicular shrinkage. Not wise to mess with a man’s nuts apparently. Tests continued on the women’s end of development even though three women died in test studies back in the 60s. Yes, women died, but at least their balls did not shrink!From there I am reminded of the wisdom offered in the lyrics of the venerable Snoop Dogg & Dr. Dre collaboration “Bitches Ain’t Shit” where Snoop (now a genteel family man with a cable reality TV show) offers “Bitches aint shit but hoes and tricks”…

Smaller balls are a no-go. Bitches (who aint nothing but hoes and tricks) dying is pretty much acceptable?

I would ask where feminist outrage is, but by now I know better.

Pray for the souls of these women and for the redemption of the west.

And if you happen to think your mother, sister, wife, daughter is more than “hoes and tricks” maybe pass this along.


The “Counselor” And Contraception

January 4, 2008

Humanae Vitae and John 14:26
by John F. Kippley

Most people in the first world have at least a vague idea that the Catholic Church teaches that it is immoral for married couples to use unnatural methods of birth control, but very few understand why it teaches this way. One fundamental reason for accepting this teaching stems from John 14:26, the conviction that God Himself is the Author of the teaching against marital contraception. Read the rest of this entry »
