"Rethink Conference"

My Trip to the Rethink Conference

Spreading HIS WORD even in tragedy -

"Rick Burgess, of the Rick & Bubba Show, took the opportunity to speak at the memorial service for his son William Bronner Burgess (also known as Cornbread on the show). Bronner had accidentally drowned in the swimming pool at their house. Rick delivers a powerful message showing his family's strong faith in God and helps us to understand what we can do to honor his Father and his son during this earthly tragedy."

Please watch and listen...and be about the FATHER'S BUSINESS in EVERYTHING!

Therefore, since we have been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have gained access (by faith) to this grace in which we stand, and we boast in hope of the glory of God. Not only that, but we even boast of our afflictions, knowing that affliction produces endurance, and endurance, proven character, and proven character, hope, and hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out into our hearts through the holy Spirit that has been given to us. Romans 5: 1-5

Abortion & RU-486

As Abortion Rate Drops, Use of RU-486 Is on Rise

Planned Parenthood to Push Candidacies

Abortion's battle of messages

former pres. CFFC's Francis Kissling and former pres. of NARAL Pro-Choice America Kate Michelman

In recent years, the antiabortion movement successfully put the nitty-gritty details of abortion procedures on public display, increasing the belief that abortion is serious business and that some societal involvement is appropriate. Those who are pro-choice have not convinced America that we support a public discussion of the moral dimensions of abortion. Likewise, we haven't convinced people that we are the ones actually doing things to make it possible for women to avoid needing abortions.

Thompson Decides To Drop Out

His statement:

McLean, VA - Senator Fred Thompson today issued the following statement about his campaign for President: "Today I have withdrawn my candidacy for President of the United States. I hope that my country and my party have benefited from our having made this effort. Jeri and I will always be grateful for the encouragement and friendship of so many wonderful people."

HLI Lauds WI's Bishop Morlino on his stand against CFFC

Contact: John Mallon, Human Life International, 405-720-2575,

FRONT ROYAL, Virginia, Jan. 22 /Christian Newswire/ -- The Rev. Thomas J. Euteneuer, STL, president of Human Life International, (HLI) today applauded Bishop Robert C. Morlino of Madison, Wisconsin, for his letter to the Wisconsin Legislature (pdf.file) pointing out the illegitimacy of the rogue group calling itself "Catholics for a Free Choice" (CFFC).

"Perhaps CFFC should call themselves 'Catholics Against Conscience' given the maneuver they are trying to pull in Wisconsin," Father Euteneuer said. "CFFC is trying to block a conscience clause in a law regarding so-called 'emergency contraception,' which would protect health professionals in the state from being forced to dispense the abortion-causing drug, also known as 'Plan B.'

"That would bring the cynical irony of their existence full circle," Father Euteneuer said. "CFFC cites a false concept of conscience to support their claims that one can be 'pro-choice' and a Catholic in good standing. CFFC also issues a misnamed publication entitled Conscience."

Father Euteneuer said, "I salute Bishop Morlino for reiterating what Human Life International and the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops have said all along: that no one can responsibly claim both to be Catholic and pro-choice."

Bishop Morlino said, "CFFC is, practically speaking, an arm of the abortion lobby in the United States and throughout the world. It is an advocacy group dedicated to supporting abortion. It is funded by a number of powerful and wealthy private foundations, mostly American, to promote abortion as a method of population control. Thus, I reaffirm, 'Catholics for a Free Choice' is not, in fact, Catholic because its members don't accept basic Catholic teaching. So, it comes as no surprise that when I teach basic Catholic doctrine, which they don't recognize as such, they call it 'political maneuvering' – a claim that is as frivolous as their claim to be Catholic is irresponsible." (Emphasis in the original.)

Father Euteneuer said, "Thank God for shepherds like Bishop Morlino. On this day when we commemorate the tragic Roe v. Wade decision—which has claimed nearly 50 million lives and damaged countless women over 35 years—his action reminds us there are still wolves in Catholic clothing ravaging God's little ones."

Update: "Rethink Conference" - Successful & kept true to the Gospel

'Rethink' Human Connection, Say Secular Leaders to Christians

"About 1,200 unique people attended the conference from Jan. 17-19, and more than 5,000 people across the nation watched the speakers via satellite."

"Prior to the conference taking place, it had come under criticism for inviting secular speakers to advised Christian on how to improve their ministry. Rethink organizers had adamantly defended the conference as seeking to help people “rethink” the methods in communicating the Word of God, not the Gospel message."

"The next Rethink Conference will be held again at the Crystal Cathedral, Feb. 5-7. 2009."

"Corpus Chisti" - Offensive Play

Gay Jesus play angers Australian church leaders
"Set to open on February 7 as part of Sydney's annual Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras festival, "Corpus Christi" depicts Jesus and his followers as gay, and ends with Jesus being crucified."
