“Zeal for your house will consume me.”

Many years ago, a little village in Madagascar, off the west coast of Africa, wanted to build a small church. The village was little more than a slum; the nearest church was the cathedral, some several miles  away.

An elderly woman of the village, Madame Denise, the proprietor of a small restaurant, was revered by the town for her kindness and generosity. After talking with the priests of the cathedral (who served 30 parishes in a 200-mile area), she secured a promise that, if the villagers could build the structure, they would see that a priest was available to celebrate Mass every Friday evening.

Any “Choice” But Life

  Pro Life Corner – Freeport, Il – 11-9-2004 – by Annarae – Pro-Life sign has been vandalized! 

Proponents of the “pro-choice” movement have spread their poison for many years under the guise of “everyone has the right to make the choice for abortion, euthanasia, etc.”  That implies that a choice is actually available and given as much publicity and credence as the “choices” of abortion.  In reality if one opposes the choice movement they are not given a public voice with equality nor is an opposition voice tolerated.  Planned Parenthood is one of the largest, if not the largest, abortion provider in the U.S.  They have received, over the last 10 years, over 4 (four) billion dollars in taxpayer money from the US government!  That’s you and I supporting, against the will of so many of us, an agency that kills babies in the womb without regard to the safety and health of the women and young girls that go through the abortion procedure.  Continue reading

As a free people will we allow free speech to be censured?

ProLifeCorner-   Our government continues its relentless attack on our rights to freedom of religion and our rights to free speech.  Back in 2012,  Eric and Joe Scheidler of the Pro life Action League, and countless thousands of other people all across this country, sent out warnings that Obama and many others in our central government were planning a Marxist style takeover of our medical industry and every day they get closer to accomplishing this dictatorial takeover of the medical industry.  Part of this takeover is the blatant attack on the rights of Christians to practice their religion, because it dictates that we pay for the murder of the preborn and the euthanizing of our infirm and elderly citizens.

The Onslaught Against Life, Marriage and Family

ProLifeCorner- Are you ready for the onslaught against good and evil In regard to abortion, marriage and family?

By Larry Plachno  Anyone who has done any reading in this area is fully aware that our society has been involved in a fierce and very polarized battle for decades. On the one side are the people who believe in good and evil. On the other side are the people who believe in personal rights instead of good and evil. 

I cannot stress strongly enough that the basic problem is whether we judge all of our actions and decisions as to whether they are good for others and society rather than what we want. The reason for this is because everything is interconnected. Demographers have shown that in recent presidential elections, states with the lowest fertility rates vote for liberal candidates and liberal issues while states with the highest fertility rates vote for conservative candidates and conservative candidates. As you become more liberal, your ideal family size gets smaller and you are less likely to be married. Abortion, marriage, family and politics are all interconnected whether we like it or not.

October is Respect Life month: Death and Human Dignity

ProLifeCorner-  Freeport, Il – by AnnaRae – 10-13-2014 -  Our country and our world is suffering from the culture of death; we suffer from not only Ebola and other deadly viruses, but from the disease of the mind that condones abortion and euthanasia.  It seems tempting to encourage people who are facing pain, from cancer or some other illness, to seek out someone who will help them end their life so they do not have to go through this agony.  It seems tempting to encourage young women to seek an abortion if they do not want or cannot afford to bear a child at this time.  Do we think of the pain she will endure down the road?  The regrets, the sorrow, the physical difficulties?  Continue reading
