7 Quick Takes Friday (set #27)

7 Quick Takes Friday

This week: A failed abortion yields life, pro-aborts say pro-lifers are “hateful” and “extremists” – you judge, not all governments align themselves with the culture of death, a glimpse into the folks we encounter in public, elementary school principal has determined that Jesus name is “offensive,” kids and the technology you used.

An abortion that missed one. This is a powerful story:

Thanks for this one go to Jen Fulwiler. I don’t usually use items I found in Jen’s 7QTF as part of my 7QTF traffic comes from there, but I just had to include this one for everyone else.

Pro-abort’s and their media allies say pro-lifers are “hateful” and “extremists.” They are half-right. In this battle of the moral and immoral, one side may fit that description. Which one? You decide:

Not all governments are firmly in the clutches of the culture of death as our is (hopefully not too much longer). At least one government produces and broadcasts pro-life ads!

Another great find from Marcel.

Keep to yourself, don’t look at other people and whatever you do – don’t talk to them. That seems to be the rule for big city survival. Instead of trying to ignore them, this video sought to learn a little about random people on the NYC subway:

The only sad note in this otherwise uplifting video are the answers to the question “what is the meaning of life?” Only one person (a Jehovah’s Witness) saw a bigger picture not centered on self or being a “good person.”

Jesus name is “offensive” and a violation of the (imagined) separation of church and state doctrine according to the Superior Street Elementary School principal in Chatsworth, CA. She objected to a talent show song chosen by a disabled 5th grader because it made reference to Jesus. She backed-down only after a lawsuit AND national coverage. I bet there would have been absolutely no issue if the name were Muhammad.

You are old (probably). At least, you are old compared with these kids. Watch as they explore the technology you used a few years ago and attempt to deduce its purpose:

Saturday Evening Blog Post

Elizabeth Esther kindly hosts a feature she calls The Saturday Evening Blog Post. Published monthly every first Saturday, it features the best post in the preceding month on each of a few dozen Christian blogs. The “best” entries are chosen by the authors themselves (so they should know!).

It is a great way to discover new blogs. Be sure to check-it out. My entry for last month was Only prayer.

Some random thoughts or bits of information are worthy of sharing but don’t warrant their own full post. This idea was started by Jennifer Fulwiler at Conversion Diary to address this blogging need. So, some Fridays I too participate when I have accumulated 7 worthy items. Thank you Jen for hosting this project!
