The Real ObamaCare Numbers; Peter Singer’s Extremism; Violence Escalates in Iraq...more

Violence Escalates in Iraq as Insurgents Overrun Second Key City    Islamist militants overran Tikrit and freed hundreds of prisoners from its jails on Wednesday, seizing the second Iraqi city in as many days and further destabilizing Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki's government.

The capture of Tikrit, the birthplace of former dictator Saddam Hussein, came hours after Sunni insurgents stormed the Turkish consulate in the northern city of Mosul and took 49 staff hostage, Turkish officials said.

Mosul, Iraq's second-largest city, fell Tuesday to the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham, an al Qaeda offshoot. It was the most significant territorial conquest for the radical group, which has also taken control of parts of Syria during the civil war...

Denmark: Churches ORDERED to perform sodomy-based wedding ceremonies
...Well, the day we prophesied has arrived. Churches in Denmark - and the U.S. will not be far behind - have been ORDERED to perform sodomy-based weddings whether they want to or not.

 According to the London Telegraph, a new law passed by the Danish parliament "make(s) it mandatory for all churches to conduct gay marriages." No options, no exceptions, no choice. Homosexuals are to be married wherever they want, regardless of whose conscience is trampled and whose sanctuary is defiled in the process.

While an individual priest may not be compelled to perform such weddings, his bishop has been ordered (under threat of what?) to find a replacement for him so that the priest's church can be used. Thus an individual priest can no longer protect the spiritual integrity of his own house of worship.

How long will it be before American churches will be ordered, as a condition of maintaining their tax-exempt status, to host same-sex ceremonies? How long will it be before American pastors are ordered to perform them?...

The Real ObamaCare Numbers
U.S. Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services disclosed  that 6 million of the 8 million people who signed-up for the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) will be receiving healthcare from Medicaid that is so affordable it is free. The revelation that seventy-five percent of the expansion of health insurance is Medicaid comes just 48 hours after the Department of Health and Human Services said many of the other 2 million that had “purchased” insurance on“ may have received greater subsidies than merited or were allowed to purchase plans for which they were ineligible.” Given the huge influx in border crossings, it appears ObamaCare is continuing to enroll large numbers of illegal aliens...

A Right to Abort But Not to Give Birth? Peter Singer’s Extremism  ...Then Singer compared women’s right to bear children to the traditional villager’s right to graze their cows on “common” grounds. As the villagers get more affluent and their cows die less from disease, he said, until the commons are overgrazed, ”yields are falling… and that’s a road to disaster.”

“Turns out that the right to graze as many cows as you like on the common was not an absolute right,” said Singer. “Obviously this is what I think we ought to be saying even about how many children we have… I hope we don’t get to a point where we do have to override it… but I don’t think we ought to shrink away from considering that as a possibility.”...
