7 Quick Takes Friday (set #116)

7 Quick Takes Friday

This week: A new documentary about the War on Humans is in the works. Plan B is an abortion inducing drug – that is how it “works.” How do you respond when the Church is attacked? Fr. Barron looks at violence in Holy Scripture. A true hero and some of the many people he saved. Everyone, especially those who have made it to college, knows about the Holocaust – right? Children who are brainwashed by their parents – one speaks out.

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!


  1. My husband, teaching an associates level ethics class, was appalled last night at the lack of knowledge of 9-11. It further surprised him to find out that his students thought “Hotel Rawanda” and “Black Hawk Down” were REAL events. I imagine that some of them think Schindler’s List was “just” a movie.

  2. Great stuff! I am inspired and will definitely be checking back. Thanks for sharing.
