When Progress is Regress: Killing Our Children

We take much for granted in the West and especially here in the United States. The legacy of a Christian past supplies us with blessings we do not adequately appreciate.  One of those blessings is a general respect for the value of human life.  The belief that all people are of equal intrinsic value is […]

So What’s the Plan Oh Mighty Men of God?
