    [Pro-Life]Anti-abortion protesters were about 60 strong outside Mercy Regional Medical Center on Thursday to protest the hospital's affiliation with local obstetrician-gynecologist Richard Grossman. Protesters waved signs that said such things as "Dr. Grossman is an abortionist" and "Abortion Kills Children," and others purporting to depict aborted fetuses at drivers entering the hospital's parking lot. Some drivers honked at the protesters; others revved their engines. "A Catholic Hospital having an abortionist on staff is a scandal," said Daniel Anguis, local director of LifeGuard, the Christian nonprofit based in Maryland that organized the protest. "On Wednesday, he dismembers babies, and the rest...

    Dear Mr. President, In your C-Span speech today, you claimed that the Democrat party is the party of Thomas Jefferson in that you believe all men are created equal. Why did you not quote the rest of Jefferson's quote, that they were not only created equal by their Creator, but that they were endowed by Him with certain unalienable rights, and that among these rights are the rights to LIFE and LIBERTY? Obviously, you and your Godless Marxist following Democrat party are NOT Jeffersonians. You lie! Regards, Jim Robinson P.S. You're still an idiot.

    Reversing his previously stated belief that none of the Republican candidates for the GOP presidential nomination have all three legs of the conservative stool, Rush Limbaugh told his listeners Monday that Mitt Romney is indeed a three-leg conservative. Describing the three legs as "national security/foreign policy, the social conservatives, and the fiscal conservatives," Rush said, "The social conservatives are the cultural people. The fiscal conservatives are the economic crowd: low taxes, smaller government, get out of the way... The foreign policy crowd is obviously what it is. I don't think there's anybody on our side who doesn't care about national...

She also says that McBrayer had cut her off several blocks previously, but...

    News of Dr. George Tiller's death was only hours old last week when bloggers began asking the question: What kind of church accepts a doctor who performs abortions into its membership? "I wonder what kind, if any, preaching against sin this church did since Tiller felt welcomed there," opined Blue Collar Todd, who declares on his blog that "liberalism, or sometimes called progressivism, is a false religion that stands in total antithesis to biblical Christianity." Todd has already made up his mind, and so have others who called or e-mailed me this week to criticize a column I wrote describing...

    There are few sights more disgusting than the American political left displaying its dark side - - as it did immediately following the murder of abortionist George Tiller on Sunday. When I read some of the trash articles making accusations that conservatives in general and Bill O’Reilly in particular were responsible for Tiller’s murder, the words which came to mind were “vile malevolence.” Accusations like this are examples of what psychologists call projection: the attribution of one’s own ideas, feelings, or attitudes to other people; especially : the externalization of blame, guilt, or responsibility as a defense against anxiety. In...
