D. A. Carson, Justin Taylor, and Kevin DeYoung have issued a statement supporting their friend C. J. Mahaney. In short, they believe that the offenses alleged in a well-known lawsuit are serious and damning, but they do not believe Mahaney bears culpability. To get the full context, you need to read the entire statement, but here are some excerpts: Continue Reading →
On an NBC News special Tuesday night, Harry Smith and Brian Williams discussed early relief efforts in Moore, Oklahoma. Having surveyed all the boots on the ground, Harry Smith concluded:
If you’re waiting for the government, you’re going to be in for an awful long wait. The Baptist men, they’re going to get it done tomorrow.
As you can see, our folks do really good work, and you really ought consider a contribution to the Oklahoma Baptist disaster relief. All donations given through NAMB right now are going to Oklahoma disaster relief as well. (HT: Baptist Press)
Kermit Gosnell has been found guilty of first degree murder in three of the four charges against him. For Gosnell, this will mean either a sentence of life in prison or the death penalty. The Washington Post reports:
Abortion provider Kermit Gosnell was convicted Monday of three counts of first-degree murder for severing the spinal cords of infants born during abortions at his West Philadelphia clinic. Continue Reading →
A transgendered person is one who self-identifies with a gender role that does not match his/her biological sex. The video above tells the story of such a man who “transitioned” himself into a “woman.” Even though he was married with two small sons, he wanted to stop being a man and become what he always felt himself to be—a female.
I have noticed that many abortion advocates have been acting as if the atrocities of Kermit Gosnell are a one-off anomaly—as if there are no other late term abortionists in the United States who have to deal with infants born alive. Nothing could be further from the truth. Live Action has produced a couple undercover videos showing how routine both late-term abortions are. The videos also show that late-term abortionists everywhere have to deal with infants who survive abortions. Continue Reading →
The report above is about a gym teacher in Ohio who lost her teaching position after it became known that she was a lesbian. She had been teaching at a Catholic high school for 19 years, but when the administration found out that she was in violation of the morality provision in her contract, they let her go.

The New York Times has an astonishingly inaccurate report on the Kermit Gosnell trial. The inaccuracy begins right up front in the lede:
A Pennsylvania judge on Tuesday threw out three of seven murder charges against a Philadelphia doctor charged with killing viable fetuses while performing abortions.
In spite of this report, Kermit Gosnell is emphatically not on trial for “killing viable fetuses while performing abortions.” Unfortunately, it’s actually legal in the United States under Roe v. Wade to kill viable fetuses during an abortion. That is not why Kermit Gosnell is on trial. Continue Reading →
From NBC Philadelphia:
It took the prosecution five weeks to present their case against West Philly abortion doctor Kermit Gosnell and it took defense attorney Jack McMahon a couple of hours to knock a big hole through a critical part of their argument.
Three first-degree murder charges were dropped against Gosnell after McMahon argued that “there is not one piece…of objective, scientific evidence that anyone was born alive” at Gosnell’s clinic. Continue Reading →
The Washington Post reports:
The Boy Scouts of America are calling for an end to their ban on homosexual members, while maintaining the ban for adult leaders.
The organization is proposing a resolution stating that “no youth may be denied membership in the Boy Scouts of America on the basis of sexual orientation or preference alone.” The change still must be approved by the group’s roughly 1,400 national council members at a meeting the week of May 20.
