Best response to Doritos Superbowl Ad; Free Exercise, Penance, and Delaware Court...more

 The story behind that Doritos Super Bowl ad

The best response yet to the pro-abort freak-out over that Doritos Superbowl ad  ...But one of the best responses I've read comes from Dr. Robert George, a pro-life professor at Princeton University, who posted this on Facebook:
I gather that the really big news, as always, had to do with a commercial advertisement that was broadcast in the course of the game. Evidently, a potato chip manufacurer, or some such profit-driven purveyor of packaged foodstuffs, showed a video image of an unborn baby. This shocked and appalled the folks at NARAL, the big abortion lobby, who promptly accused the company responsible for the ad of "humanizing the fetus." Since, however, the fetus in the video was, by all accounts, a human fetus, the offspring of human parents, and not a bovine, canine, or feline fetus, it's less than clear how it is that the potato chip company (or whatever it was) is to blame for the humanization. Surely NARAL's complaint would be more fairly lodged against God, or nature, or plain old biological reality.
Memo to NARAL: that's what an unborn baby actually looks like...

School in Colorado sued for rejecting 'Lord' in locker room decides to remove all donor nameplates ...The Colorado School of Mines made the decision in light of the lawsuit filed last October by former school athlete Michael Lucas, who donated $2,500 to the fundraising programme for the new Clear Creek Athletics Complex and wanted his donor nameplate to include the text "Colossians 3:23 and Micah 5:9."

But the school rejected it as one of the verses contained the word "Lord," claiming that the inclusion of that word on the nameplate would violate the First Amendment...

BBC Tells Reporters to Call Pro-Life People “Anti-Abortion” and to Call Pro-Abortion Activists “Pro-Choice”    ...The broadcaster’s official style guide  says of those who favour of abortion:

“Avoid pro-abortion, and use pro-choice instead. Campaigners favour a woman’s right to choose, rather than abortion itself.”

It then tells staff to avoid the term “pro-life” and use “anti-abortion” instead. It does not give a reason why.

The guide, which applies to thousands of BBC journalists across the world, has been slammed by pro-life campaigners who have called it a “violation of journalistic objectivity” and accused the corporation of “gross ignorance”.

China arrests Protestant church leader who opposed removal of crosses   ...Supporters of Gu, former chief pastor at Chongyi church, said the government arrested him on trumped-up charges and was punishing him for publicly opposing the removal of church crucifixes. Authorities have taken down hundreds of crosses in Zheijiang, a province on the east coast often described as China’s bible belt...

 Free Exercise, Penance, and Delaware Court ...Oh, what a tangled web we weave when judges put asunder what the Founding Fathers joined in the First Amendment! The court’s line of reasoning is worrisome, for three reasons...
