Paradoxically, people who make science their religion these days tend to have no actual grasp of science at all. Case in point: comedian Sarah Silverman defending Planned Parenthood this week with "Science is real."

Romans 1:22 has never been so relevant.

Here we are on this watery, blue orb, floating in space. Infinite space crowds us in at every side. Thousands upon thousands of planets and moons interrupt the emptiness. Thousands upon thousands of stars compete against the darkness with their marvelous light.

All that space and all of those planets just beg the question--is there extraterrestrial life?

That's a question that scientists and thinkers have been asking for a long time, and it's one that the scientific community is still trying to answer -- along with a certain Russian entrepreneur.

One question constantly asked of pro-lifers is "Without Planned Parenthood, what would happen to affordable health care for poor women?" There are a number of good answers to that question, and National Review Online has done us all the invaluable service of gathering together 15 men and women to talk about those answers.

We must never give in and believe the lie that women will suffer without Planned Parenthood. Help and hope are already available, and will continue to be available. And as Erika Bachiochi puts it in the NRO symposium, it is the kind of help that "seek[s] to meet the needs of mother and child, offering them the support they needed to mutually flourish."

If there could be any doubt at all left about what Planned Parenthood was doing, the latest gruesome and heartbreaking video from the Center for Medical Progress would dispel it once and for all.

LifeSiteNews reports, "The California Superior Court has issued a narrow temporary restraining order preventing the Center for Medical Progress (CMP), a pro-life group, from releasing further undercover video footage taken of three top-level staff of StemExpress."

However, David Daleiden, who made and is releasing the videos, says it's not actually that big a deal: "The ruling is very narrow, concerning only one specific meeting, and it is temporary and contingent pending further litigation. . . . The judge actually threw out completely the part of StemExpress' case where they were asking to suppress the documents on their baby parts sales."

The biggest news here seems to be that Daleiden and the Center for Medical Progress have Planned Parenthood and their allies so scared that they're desperate to suppress these videos. Perhaps they're thinking that even the unthinking, unquestioning allegiance of their supporters in the media, the government, and elsewhere just might not be enough to get them through a scandal of this magnitude.

As I emphasized in my previous blog post, parents are missionaries in one of the world's most crucial mission fields: the home.

This is a truth that one of our former Centurions realized. And she chose to do something about it.

There's an overlooked mission field in this world, and there are overlooked missionaries among us. Unfortunately, this mission field and these missionaries just happen to be arguably the most important workers for the cause of Christ in our world.

That mission field is the home. Those missionaries are Christian parents.

You know something has gone terribly wrong when people start treating children they way they treat frogs in a high school biology lab.

This week's video from the Center for Medical Progress shows employees at Planned Parenthood sorting through the body parts of an 11-week-old aborted baby. Needless to say, the content isn't exactly easy to stomach. You can find the full video here. Remember, this isn't some weird sci-fi movie. This is real life. It's happening right now--to the children of a "free" nation. Read More >

Social media has seen a plethora of pro- and anti-same-sex marriage opinions over the past several weeks. One of the more discouraging for me was a post on Good Letters, the blog run by the folks at Image Journal. Image has held a special place in my heart for many years, affording me opportunities to approach ideas and art beyond my personal faith and circumstances. But their recent post “Beauty, Christian Love, and Gay Marriage” was a profound disappointment.

In it, Morgan Meis not only celebrates what he sees as the beautiful language of the majority opinion in Obergefell vs. Hodges, but also contends that the Supreme Court actually defended marriage with its ruling. He writes:

Planned Parenthood is defending itself with . . . Minions. A tweet from the organization compares pro-lifers to the little yellow stars of the hit animated movie.

Memo to PP: Try again. Minions are the guys everyone likes.
