Our presentation on Humanae Vitae, the Church and Contraception this Sunday was a success. We had a very good crowd and I think the overall message got across pretty well in the short amount of time we had to deliver it. Truly each of the three speakers could have taken up the whole hour and a half themselves – so … Read More

It would just be really be nice if he actually had a chance of winning. From Constitution Party candidate Chuck Baldwin (from video below): I will use the bully pulpit of the White House to encourage Congress to pass Congressman Ron Paul’s Sanctity of Life Act which would do two things.

In the Old Testament the veil … Read More
