Good Friday Music: In the Garden

When they came for Him in the garden, did they know?
When they came for Him in the garden, did they know?
Did they know He was the Son of God, did they know that He was Lord?
Did they hear when He told Peter, “Peter, put up your sword”?
When they came for Him in the garden, did they know?
When they came for Him in the garden, did they know?

Point-Counterpoint: with Janet Napolitano and Ben Franklin

March 30, 2010

Secretary Napolitano:

“We know that in times of war it’s been common place for the rights of Americans to be limited,” she said, noting history has harshly judged such measures. “But in a time of new and changing threats, we have to revise our traditional paradigms of how we think about rights and security.” Liberty and security are not “opposing values,” she said. “You can not live freely if you live in fear.”

Benjamin Franklin:

“They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety.”

Subject: New building dedication speaker

I am pleased to tell you that Justice Clarence Thomas has accepted our invitation to be the principal speaker at our new building dedication ceremony in spring 2011.

Stupak in a crossfire

March 27, 2010

right where he belongs

This from LifeNews:

Stupak first faces a primary election challenge from a hardcore abortion advocate who, today finds herself getting national support from NARAL. … “Over the last several months, we’ve been forced to witness Rep. Bart Stupak’s despicable attempts to hijack health-care reform because of his extreme anti-choice agenda,” NARAL president Nancy Keenan said today an in [sic] email obtained.

And if Stupak makes it through the primary, there will be a pro-life republican waiting to challenge him. But to make it through the primaries, he will likely have to downplay his ostensible pro-life stance which will make it tough to win many pro-life Michiganders.

Such is the fate of weak men.
