The episode took place at the American Political Science Association (APSA) annual convention on Labor Day weekend. Stanley Fish of Duke University and Robert George of Princeton were debating “Can we debate important moral issues when people proceed from deeply divergent starting points?”  The professors exchanged papers before the debate and George, described by Colson as “a young, brilliant political philosopher,  and also a conservative Catholic Christian,” raised the issue […]

MEDIA MOGUL DESPISES OWN CHILDREN, REVEALS MESSIANIC COMPLEX

ATLANTA, Sept 18 (LSN) – Media mogul and population control advocate Ted Turner recently tried to outdo earlier extremist views he has expressed in favour of population control. American Life League reported Wednesday that he just told a real estate group in Atlanta that he was sorry he had five children: “If I was doing it over again I wouldn’t have done it,” he said “but I can’t shoot them now that they’re here.”  Turner also called opponents of China’s brutal coercive population control program “dumb-dumbs,” and, in what some critics believe may be evidence of a dangerous Messianic complex, […]

BINGHAMTON, NY, Sept 17 (LSN) – After being the victim of a vicious and slanderous campaign by pro-abortion Republicans, former Operation Rescue leader and Republican political hopeful Randall Terry was defeated in a New York GOP primary by William “Bud” Walker. Terry, always a fighter, however said he would nevertheless run in the November elections.  One particularly malicious attack on Terry in August took out of context a statement he made: “I want you to just let a wave of intolerance wash over you. Let some hate wash over you. Yes, hatred is good.” An ad put out by pro-abortion […]
