    I don’t recall ever hearing of British musician Blythe Pepino before now, but she’s in the news because she started a movement encouraging people to pledge not to have children because of climate change. If that sentence leaves you scratching your head, don’t look to me for any answers. I’ve read this entire article at CNN twice now and I’m still not sure what she’s on about. There’s something about the carbon cost of every additional human being, combined with the idea that the Earth is ending in eleven years or something. Check it out for yourself. Climate change is...

    FULL TITLE: Alyssa Milano calls for women across America to go on a 'sex strike' until Georgia's controversial anti-abortion 'heartbeat bill' is overturned Alyssa Milano has called for all women to go on a 'sex strike' until a controversial anti-abortion law in Georgia has been repealed. Milano, 46, who was instrumental in the #MeToo movement, called on her vast social media following to abstain from sex until the restrictive abortion law - dubbed the 'heartbeat bill' - is overturned. The heartbeat bill makes it illegal for women to have an abortion after a heartbeat has been detected in the womb...

    Fighting for the lives of the unborn and the empowerment of their mothers against a billion-dollar industry can be exhausting. Every day is literally a fight between life and death and while the pro-life movement has had some wins, over 3,000 abortions are still happening every day in this nation. Its intense. Its emotional. And some days it can be disheartening. Today is not one of those days. Liberal Hollywood actress and activist, Alyssa Milano, has come up with a brilliant idea to promote her agenda of women having complete control over their bodies and of course, abortion access for...
  • Justin Bieber encourages abstinence before marriage, but not everyone is pleased

    In a very candid interview for Vogue, Justin Bieber explained that he abstained from sex for one year, wanting to get closer to God. He also said that he and his new wife Hailey Baldwin saved sex for marriage, which is one reason they got married so quickly. Not surprisingly, his interview has generated a torrent of comments, both positive and negative, including an article critical of Biebers call to abstinence. But why get mad at him for encouraging self-control? Why criticize a positive example? Or is his example really positive? On the conservative Christian side, its easy to throw...
  • Pro-Abortion Women Go on Sex Strike to Save Roe v. Wade

    RUSH: This is The Daily Wire. Pro-Abortion Women Start Sex Strike To Save Roe v. Wade. My question is this: Will anybody notice if these babes stop having sex? Will anybody notice? Maybe Harvey Weinstein, but beyond that, would anybody notice that these women are having a sex strike? And what is this? A sex strike to save Roe v. Wade? Im trying to figure out how this actually works. Martin Sheen and Alec Baldwin have offered a tremendous sacrifice. A 24-hour food strike to protest Trumps immigration policy. Twenty-four hour food strike. Martin Sheen is the guy that used...

    Fake news is alive and well -- and thriving on the pages of America's biggest newspapers. No wonder more people are tuning out the media. They don't trust it. And outlets like the New York Times aren't giving them any reason to try. At some point, the Times's editorial board must have gotten together and decided to reprint every lie ever told about abstinence education. The result was May 5th's work of fiction, a breathtakingly dishonest, 602-word crime scene of journalism that justifies America's growing distrust of the press. About the only thing that was accurate about the column was...

    22-year-old was living in West Hollywood, hoping to launch his acting career. Los Angeles had a thriving a gay scene where King, for the first time, could embrace his sexuality freely. He frequented bathhouses and also met men in dance clubs and along the bustling sidewalks. There was lots of sex to be had. Like a few years earlier, the doctor gave him a handful of antibiotics to take for a few days that would clear up the infection. It wasn't a big deal. In fact, as King describes it, it was "simply an errand to run." ... When King...

    The Trump administration rolled out its new sex education priorities this week with an emphasis on abstinence and other sexual risk avoidance strategies. The Title X grant application, released Friday, prioritizes the types of programs that the abortion chain Planned Parenthood and other abortion groups do not offer. Planned Parenthood has been criticized repeatedly for promoting risky sexual behavior to students and young adults. Politico reports the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services will offer $260 million in Title X grants to qualified health care providers. Heres more from the report.....

    The key to healthy high schoolers might be where no one was looking: the bedroom! In last year's report from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), officials made it clear that teaching kids to save sex for marriage might just spare them from a long list of other health risks. Students in grades 9-12 who made positive decisions about sex were just as likely (or more!) to avoid other dangerous behaviors.That's great news for parents, who were thrilled with the government's announcement that more kids were postponing intimacy than ever before. For years, moms and dads of both parties have...

    Well! I look back and I realize that last month, I passed an 'abstinent anniversary" making this my twelve year of being chaste since breaking up with my boyfriend at age 21. I decided then and there to abstain from sex until marriage and I have faithfully kept that vow. It's been twelve years of major changes and my remaining non-sexually active has been a mainstay throughout those changes.

    Sam Wei, a 26-year-old financial analyst in Chicago, has not had sex since her last relationship ended 18 months ago. She makes out with guys sometimes, and she likes to cuddle. To me, theres more intimacy with having someone there next to you that you can rely on without having to have sex, she said. I dont want to do anything that would harm the relationship and be something that we cant come back from. Sam Wei, 26, finds intellectual conversation more stimulating and more pleasurable than having sex sometimes. (Courtesy of Sam Wei) Its a less sexy time to...

    If you want to understand the catastrophe of education during the Obama administration, a new book by Dr. Peter Wood, president of the National Association of Scholars, is a must-read. His book is entitled "Drilling Through the Core: Why Common Core Is Bad for American Education." Common Core is the education fad that swept the nation with the deceptive slogan "higher standards." Everyone is for "higher standards," right? Who could possibly object to higher standards for all our kids? As Dr. Wood explains, though, the word "higher" did not mean higher intellectual content of the standards, but a higher percentage...
  • Lent, 2016 - Fasting on ALL Fridays and Lent

    03/11/2016 6:00:03 PM PST · by Salvation · 16 replies
    Fasting on ALL Fridays and Lent There is some question raised about my strong words (later in this article) regarding one who knowingly and willingly rejects Canon 1251. Some Catholics have attempted to convince me that not observing some sort of fast from some sort of food on all Fridays of the year does not constitute a sin. One has stated it is not a major precept, so "breaking" it is not sinful. This confuses and concerns me. How can any Catholic knowingly and willingly reject ANY precept laid out in Canon Law and not have it be a...

    Tim Tebow recently split with girlfriend Olivia Culpo — a former Miss USA model — and the reason is said to be the former Broncos quarterback’s abstinence pledge. Yes, that’s right, folks. You now live in a culture where a girl doesn’t want a man who respects her enough to wait until he is ready to commit to her, faithfully for life, and not just use her body for his own personal pleasure. Sports media, as you might expect, had a field day mocking Tebow and his desire to please God with his sexuality. From NewsBusters: Tim Tebow’s relationship with...

    My old boss, M.

He said, If the government does that as well as it does everything else, pretty soon nobody will be doing it. Well, that joke is becoming a reality. Consent from the person you are kissing or more is not merely silence or a lack of protest, Shafia Zaloom, a health educator at the Urban School of San Francisco, told the students,...

    Each year during the Octave of Easter – and of Christmas – there is a Friday.  Fridays are days of penance, usually observed by abstinence from meat.So, can one eat meat on Friday in the Octave of Easter?The 1983 Code of Canon Law says in can. 1251: Abstinence from meat, or from some other food as determined by the Episcopal Conference, is to be observed on all Fridays, unless a solemnity should fall on a Friday… (Can. 1251) The General/Universal Norms for the Liturgical Year and the Calendar 24 says that: The first eight days of the Easter season make up...
  • LENT - A TIME OF REDISCOVERY

    For the Church, Lent like Advent is a "powerful season" a season of waiting and preparing and therefore a time for sacrifice, repentance, and purification. But, in our hedonistic society of today these words seem to strike a rather discordant note. So, is it fair to ask : how do we speak today about sacrifice and how do we practice it ?? Lent lasts for 40 days - as many days as Jesus Christ spent in the desert before he took on his mission of salvation. 40 is a sacred number in the Bible : the Deluge lasted for 40...
