How The Media Have Mangled The Pro-Life Story
This past year, I found myself chief chronicler of the two of the year's most important stories involving the pro-life movement. One was the inspiring saga of the 2009 March For Life, the largest in its 36-year history. The second was the dispiriting saga of the recently murdered late-term abortionist Dr. George Tiller. What the two stories have in common is that each was consciously and completely mistold by the major media. Our rooftop cameramen estimated about 350,000 marchers in all in the 2009 Washington March for Life, the largest ever.

Obama and the Vampire Congress by Michelle Malkin
Meet the Beltway bloodsuckers. They convene in the dead of night, when most ordinary mortals have left work, let their guard down, or are lying asleep in bed. Pale-faced and insatiable, the nocturnal thieves do their nefarious business in backrooms and secret chambers. Their primary victims? Taxpayers, the free market, and deliberative democracy.

Fourth Quarter Blackout
Imagine watching the biggest game of the year—the Super Bowl—only to have the broadcast cut off as the fourth quarter begins.
The same outrage should apply to President Obama’s broken promise to have C-SPAN televise the entirety of health care negotiations. Just as we reach the crucial moment–the final resolution between the House, the Senate and the White House–public access goes black.

NAMBLA-gate: The Strange Case of Kevin Jennings
Education Department official Kevin Jennings says that Hay inspired him
Hay in 1979 issued a call for a “Spiritual Conference for Radical Faeries” that included a poem from the notorious occultist Aleister Crowley. Stuart Timmons, author of The Trouble With Harry Hay, documents Hay's involvement with Crowley, noting that Hay played the organ for the Los Angeles lodge of Crowley's Order of the Eastern Temple, a “notorious anti-Christian spiritual group” where “homosexual sex-magic rituals” took place.

Global Warming Hysteria: Even When It’s Colder, It’s Because the World is Hotter – Wesley J. Smith

More Spin Will Cause, Not Cure, Public Mistrust of Science – Wesley J. Smith
The central lesson of Climategate was that the scientists involved were not only far from objective, but they were hyper-concerned with communication–most particularly stifling those with whom they disagreed.  They wanted a monopoly on what was reported and threatened to punish reporters and professional journals that permitted even a whiff of heterodoxy into the discussion.

Avatar” is Cameron’s Long Apologia for Pantheism
It’s fitting that James Cameron’s “Avatar” arrived in theaters at Christmastime. Like the holiday season itself, the science fiction epic is a crass embodiment of capitalistic excess wrapped around a deeply felt religious message. “Avatar” is Cameron’s long apologia for pantheism — a faith that equates God with Nature, and calls humanity into religious communion with the natural world…pantheism has been Hollywood’s religion of choice for a generation now.

It’s the metaphysic woven through Disney cartoons like “The Lion King” and “Pocahontas.” And it’s the dogma of George Lucas’s Jedi, whose mystical Force “surrounds us, penetrates us, and binds the galaxy together.” The threat of global warming, meanwhile, has lent the cult of Nature qualities that every successful religion needs — a crusading spirit, a rigorous set of ‘thou shalt nots,” and a piping-hot apocalypse.

At the same time, pantheism opens a path to numinous experience for people uncomfortable with the literal-mindedness of the monotheistic religions — with their miracle-working deities and holy books, their virgin births and resurrected bodies. Indeed, it represents a form of religion that even atheists can support.

‘Avatar’ sports both stunning graphics and environmentalist Gnosticism
…the plot itself is a thinly-masked push for a very secular environmental agenda…the film will undoubtedly win awards for its spectacular cinematography. However, the reason it will receive much acclaim “is because the film represents Hollywood's official dogma of religion without God or personal moral commitments” despite the relative success of other deeper, more positive films this season, such as “The Blind Side.”

Audiences Experience 'Avatar' Blues
Some fans who say they have experienced depression and suicidal thoughts after seeing the film because they long to enjoy the beauty of the alien world Pandora. …people experiencing depression. A user named Mike wrote on the fan Web site “Naviblue” that he contemplated suicide after seeing the movie. “Ever since I went to see 'Avatar' I have been depressed. Watching the wonderful world of Pandora and all the Na'vi made me want to be one of them. Other fans have expressed feelings of disgust with the human race and disengagement with reality.

Blockbuster film “Avatar” is being embraced by a porn industry notorious for helping new technologies access homes.

The Rising Polyamorous Culture Is Out to Get Your Children by Patrick F. Fagan
The culture of the traditional family is now in intense competition with a very different culture. The defining difference between the two is the sexual ideal each embraces. In all of human history, the culture of monogamy has never encountered the type of competition it faces now. We must engage. We can wait no longer; we need men of courage and energy. We are looking for the first few.
