Raising Healthy Kids

Planned Parenthood has a program designed to promote ‘Sexual and Reproductive Health‘ among teenagers.   Similar to previous programs designed to promote ‘Safe Sex’ with condom giveaways this program, called Teen Advocates For Sexual Health’ will result in more unwanted teen pregnancies and a further explosion of STDs.  Of course, the more teen pregnancies there are, the more profit Planned Parenthood makes.

If the message to teens is that all sex is ok, you just have to be safe while participating sounds good to you, I would suggest examining both the audience and past results.  The condom giveaway program with counseling created two additional unwanted pregnancies per 1000 women.   2014 was a bumper year for STDs.  Clearly telling  young as yet to mature people that casual sex is OK is not the best method of raising responsible kids.  Whether or not kids choose to have sex in more committed arrangements and whether or not they do so safely is a function of maturity.  There is no way 14 and 15 year olds have the maturity to make those decisions.

Still, that fact has not kept Planned Parenthood from promoting this is schools.  The message that abstinence it a valid choice for young people is laughed at.  Yet, abstinence is 100% effective in preventing unwanted pregnancies and 100% effective at stopping the spread of STDs.    Abstinence also allows kids to mature so they can make intelligent decisions.

The argument that they will do it anyway is a self full-fulfilling one.  Providing the means, such as birth control pills or condoms tells young people that they should have sex no matter the consequence.  The study above and the proliferation of STDs shows the consequence.  Is Planned Parenthood willing to council all those with now life long afflictions that it was a good choice?  Some of those STDs are HIV or viruses that cause cancer.   That is the unintended consequence of this type of program.

At what point will society realize that most children are really not capable evaluating when it is safe to have sex and most children are not mature enough to take all the proper precautions.   The data proves this and schools have no business allowing this type of program in their doors.

Impact Your World

One of the arguments put forward to justify the abortion mills that are still very much a part of modern day Americana is that these facilities provide safe, easy access to abortion.  This was not true for Lakisha Wilson.  Her second trimester abortion procedure resulted in her death.  From the history of the Gosnell Clinic in Philadelphia to this case the botched abortion, the maiming and death of young women continues to this day.

So what can you do to stop this carnage?  Yes, amazing enough you can help! I am sponsoring a team for the walk for zero for Shelby   Sav-A-Life.  We are striving for zero abortions in Shelby county by 2020.   If you will pledge for the team and come out an walk at Valleydale Church on April 9th you can have a huge impact on reducing the death and damage done by abortions in Alabama.   You don’t have to walk, but there are raffle prizes if you do.  The pledge will be huge.

Please contact me  at 205-585-9244 or message me to make a pledge.  It is the most important thing you can do to help young women choose life and your contribution will preserve the life of both mothers and babies.

 

Liberty University Betrays Christianity

Dear Rev. Jerry Falwell Jr.

As the President of Liberty University, your recent endorsement of Donald Trump is a stab in the womb for all those who wish to see the carnage that is abortion in America stopped.    Trump in on record supporting abortion rights for women and at one point did not even object to partial birth abortions when asked.   I can’t believe you are not completely informed about this.  Your endorsement of Trump in no different than telling every student at Liberty University that abortion is a viable option.

What did he offer you Jerry?  Trump said he would make deals with everyone.  Is he planning on supporting Christians by killing their babies?  Did he give you a ride on his plane?  Did he offer Liberty University more money in financial aid for students?  Is it really about the money?  Did he pay you personally?

Trump has a long history of supporting Democratic causes and views.  He has promised to work with them, to make deals.  Obviously, he has made a deal with you where you are willing to compromise your Christian values for some sort of gain.   What was said in that closed door meeting between you two where you agreed to do this?  Is there some sort of dirt you need to avoid?  I do not know what really happened but given the history of Liberty University, it is very suspicious.

Congratulations on your stance.  It is one that shows no principle, no backbone and nothing but contempt for the cause of life.  I would urge every student at Liberty University to go elsewhere.  I know that for my children I will urge them not to consider every going to a place that has the same values as any secular institution.  Your choice to endorse Trump is a betrayal of life, and a betrayal of every student and alumni of Liberty University.

It is always sad when a “believer” appears to fall.

Sincerely,

Keith Risman

Re-education Centers — Liberal Education In America

Most of our leaders in the media and in government are products of a flawed educational system, one that has traded the harsh truths of reality for utopian fantasy.  Liberal Arts education, as is promoted by most State colleges and even more intensely by elitist Ivy League schools, has traded free thinking for propaganda.  The world of theory and wishful thinking has replaced a world of fact.

I listened today as when one recent graduate was asked how they would stop the beheadings.  Their answer started with, “We need to get the Muslim community to come  together and….”

That approach is not much different than that of Marie Harf at the State Department telling us we need to get the radicals jobs so that we can reach down and change the root causes of terrorism.   Seriously,  their religion, their ideology tells them to kill infidels. (That is everyone who does not believe as they do.)  It’s not about jobs, its about their belief in how to get to heaven.  (Saying that no true religion is violent is fantasy.  1500 years ago the Mayan’s played soccer with the heads of their enemies to appease their Gods.)  Just because you don’t like how something is conducted does not make that thing something else.    That is what I mean about liberal fantasy.  They redefine things based on what they want not based on what is.

This liberal educational process has created generations of leaders ill prepared to handle the challenges we face.   Below are several tenets of this education where propaganda and wishful thinking is taught and encouraged rather than facts.   Each will be listed and explored in greater depth as we progress.

1.) The necessity for a strong military to protect our freedom and our lives is denigrated.

2.)  That the free market promotes inequity and poverty while socialism and communism produce more prosperous societies.

3.) Evolution is taught as the only way humanity could have developed.  Believing in a creator is actively discouraged.

4.)  Unrestrained sexual freedom and unlimited abortion are promoted as the hallmarks of modern enlightenment.

5.)  Those with different beliefs are penalized with poorer grades, made fun of and ostracized by their professors.

6.)  Courses are taught from non historical perspectives to reframe history to support current social agenda’s.

Please hang with me as we explore these points.  This approach to education has had a tremendous impact on the way our current leadership approaches managing government and the affairs that affect our lives.

Let’s start with the military.  Throughout a number of courses at liberal arts colleges the student is introduced to the concept of the military industrial complex.  All that industry, invention, and scientific development is treated as a drain on society.  If only those resources could go for food or social work then we would be so much better off.  Students are told that the evil corporations are taking from us and from the poor in order to create better and better weapons.   They are told that these weapons and the military itself are not needed.

The fact that the military protected us in WWII, freed Kuwait from Sadaam, and has kept the now resurgent Soviet Union out of the main part of Europe is not mentioned.   It is the ability to defend  land and territory that protects us.  There will always be those in the world that want to take from others or cause harm to others.  Without a strong military those people will do just that.  There has never been a case where one side lays down their arms and their enemies do not attack.  It is the way of human nature.  It is what makes unilateral disarmament a formula for disaster.  Still many students are taught that this is a good thing.    We see the result of our unilateral reduction in arms.  The level of chaos in the world has increased 100 fold.  Here reality clearly shows the academic theory to be nothing more than fantasy and wishful thinking.

As to economics.  The facts again outweigh the theory.   Societies with greater economic freedom and lower tax rates have a far greater average standard of living than those with significant socialist and communist elements.  Sure there is a disparity between the wealthiest and the poorest, but if the poorest are doing better than 90% of those in the rest of the world, then those poor are doing pretty well.  In the United States, the poor by and large all eat well and have TVs, cell phones, and cars.  Compare this to the poor in South America or Africa where they lack roads, running water and electricity in many places.  Capitalism built the world that has this high level of prosperity.  Over the past 6 years that prosperity has started to diminish in direct relation to the amount of social reform put into place.  A greater number of American are living pay check to pay check because of the socialist policies.

Here in economics, the facts belie the theory.  Students are not taught the truth, but what professors wish to be true.   As they grow up and become leaders they fail to understand how to create wealth and prosperity.  These same students are unprepared for both the marketplace and for leadership.

A student who says openly that they believe that God created human kind is treated as a leper by his or her professors.  Evolution, which to this day has failed to show one thing actually turning into another is taught as gospel.  Nevertheless,  neither evolution nor the big bang answers the question as to why we exist at all.   Here again, reality,  the fact that there is existence is ignored in the pursuit of liberal arts truth.

Perhaps one of the most insidious pairs of thought have to do with sexual freedom.  Students are encouraged not to bond but to have ‘free sex’.  The idea of marriage is discouraged.   Nevertheless, countless psychological studies have shown that such an approach diminishes self esteem and self worth.  When pregnancies occur these same students are told that the fetus is only a mass of tissue.  The result is countless of individuals that fear they have murdered their children and know in their hearts this is the case.   The value of life is diminished and the harm done, all in the name of enlightenment and pleasure.    Had these same promoters examined the studies of psychological health and the benefit of family, they would teach these students differently.

Again, what is taught and promoted has nothing to do with ‘good’ as has been proven by time and studies, only with desire. It is the world these teachers desire, not the world that is best.

The power of the grade and its future impact on students is used to promote the views above to the exclusion of fact and thought.  Students that write a positive piece of communism are rewarded with higher grades.  Those that promote capitalism or who suggest that the protestant church was a force for good are ostracized and given D’s and F’s.      Instead of rewarding scholarship these schools are rewarding ideology.  A belief in capitalism promoted by a scholarly work is excoriated while support of Keynesian economics is lauded as brilliant, even without facts to back it up.    Instead of being a bastion of free thought and speech, Universities have become the re-education centers of modern America.

Tenure was provided to professors so they could speak their minds without being fired.  Now those same professors use that system to prevent free thought and ideas.  They forbid those who have different ideas from getting tenure and encourage students to be intolerant of others views.  That is why politically correct speech has become the norm. The crime is offending, even if it is truth that is spoken.  It is as if 1980 China lives well on campus.  There is not even enough juice for a Tiananmen square type protest.

This is by no means a new phenomenon, but is one that has progressed for the last 50 years.    In the 1970’s I had a medieval history course which among other things examined the role of Christianity in the development of Western society.  As the discussion covered the Council of Nicaea and a number of other venues where much  of early Christianity worked itself out with the politics of the time. The professor would make point after point to say how history invalidated Christian beliefs.    Much of that information was not even within the scope of the class.     Looking back, it is clear that the information he presented was to a large extent contrived to discourage Christian beliefs.

The real harm that our institutions of modern liberal arts are causing are from the contrived and often one sided interpretation of curricula.  Instead of being a world filled with the exploration of knowledge our universities have become re-education centers aimed at producing only one type of thought.    As our society declines, government gets bigger, and poverty increases, we can lay that blame squarely on the academic institutions that have traded teaching theory and fantasy for teaching fact.   Until that changes the United States will continue to be a nation in decline.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Post-Birth Abortion — Infanticide — Murder By Any Other Name

Our culture has reached a new low.  Among a growing number of college students post-birth abortion has become an acceptable method of birth control.  If this trend does not absolutely frighten you, it should.   By definition a post birth abortion is not an abortion, it is infanticide.  Abortions stop unwanted pregnancies.  Birth also stops an unwanted pregnancy.  At the point there is a birth it is no longer an unwanted pregnancy, it is a baby!!!  By definition a living baby cannot be aborted. There is no version of this activity where post birth infanticide is not murder.

So, let’s examine this idea a bit further.  If it is OK to kill a baby in the first hour after birth and call it an abortion, why is is not OK to kill them a day after?  What about a week after? A month after? A year after?, 10 years later or 30 years later? By the logic involved, anyone that is inconvenient or could negatively impact your life can be killed.  Life has no meaning whatsoever.

The Jihadist’s are just performing post birth abortions.  Does that make their activity OK.   The cheapening of life in this country has reached new lows.  More and more of our colleges are fostering these ideas in a world that has no moral root. If life does not have value, then we are all in for a sad future.  It is a future where murder is relative.  It’s OK if you are the right person performing the deed.  If you look where the concentration of abortions is currently, far heavier in the poor and black communities you will find how this trend blends into the goals of Eugenicists who think killing poor people improves society.

I would challenge everyone to think about this line to life. The movement from its just a mass of flesh at 3 months to, its not really a baby at 6 months, to killing it a 8 months or 10 months or a year is not all that difficult.  Without drawing the line at not killing any potential human life we open the door to wanton murder.

Abortion: Quality Care — Personal Health Implications

The University of California has published an educational course called Abortion: Quality Care and Public Health Implications.  This course focusing on the clinical aspects of abortion professes to be helping improve knowledge and access to safe abortion care.   The course promotes access to abortions from conception to past the first trimester.    There is no such thing as a ‘safe abortion’.  Even if the procedure itself is safe, and we will discuss that in a minute, the impact of the act on the psyche of the woman having the abortion cannot be fixed.  No matter how many times the women tells herself is was just a mass of tissue, in the back of her mind, she knows it was a life she killed.  All voluntary abortions are murder.  No one can live with that and be unaffected.

If a miscarriage is devastating.  How much more so is choosing an abortion.  The course almost admits this with a section titled:

Relationship between early pregnancy loss care and abortion care.

They essentially admit that this is an emotionally devastating event.  There is no course section on counselling the woman to not have an abortion because it will devastate her and emotionally cripple her for life.

Over the past couple of years a few stories have come out about abortion mills such as the one in Cleveland or the one in Kansas, killing babies even after a live birth.  The treatment of the women in these facilities in terms of sanitation was also deemed well below the standard for medical care.  Each of these facilities is purely designed as a killing factory.  If the medical providers care nothing for the baby’s life, how can anyone expect that the mother’s life is important.  For that reason, there is no facility offering abortion services that can be expected to truly care for women.    A death mills care not for any of its patients only its patient’s money.  If you doubt that look at Planned Parenthood’s profit and loss statement.

How often do these facilities council women that their  risk of breast cancer will increase?  Perhaps we should put a warning label on the forceps.  It would say, “Caution, this procedure can cause breast cancer in older women, and is known to cause irreparable emotional damage.”  I wonder if the whole truth were given, if there would be a fraction of these procedures.

Instead of praising a course like the one mentioned, we should condemn it as promoting the death agenda.  It is the same agenda promoted by eugenicists killing minority and poor children in far greater numbers than those wealth and influence.  It is a holocaust in its own right.   If we had a course teaching the value of life instead  our world would be a far better place.

 

 

 

Life is Cheap

With an average of 1.2 million abortions a year in the United States, is it any surprise that the value of life in America has plummeted.   In Europe they are holding up as examples elderly people that want to kill themselves   They call that euthanasia.  It’s a nice big 21st century word for self murder or suicide.    Young women in the inner city learn that killing babies is OK.  Teenage boys learn that babies have no value.  In the same process they learn that life has no value.   So, with life cheapened, whole elements of our population don’t care about themselves or others.

This same attitude opens up young men to the radical Islamic preaching where they become killers.  If they never learn to value life they are open to the idea that only their own lives and the lives of other radicals have value.  They then get their sense of worth from a narcissistic, sadistic belief in their own religious fervor.  Their god is a god of death and vengeance.  They are devoid of the caring and empathy.  This radical that cut of the head of the woman in Oklahoma today could not have valued life, otherwise he never would have committed that horrible crime.

We need to return to a world where life is valued.  Those that threaten others need to be locked away or dead.  Ending the wanton killing of babies would be a start.  Bringing the idea of fatherhood to the inner city in order to raise children born out of wedlock would go a long way toward civilizing those that currently care little for their own lives.    Changing the culture of death to one of a culture of life would go a long way to making our society better.
