Birth control for everyone! No cost! No responsibility!

Q:  Just what disease does birth control prevent?

 Yes, that right.  Children are now a disease.  They must be prevented.  And I'm gonna have to pay for it.  So are you.

This is an actual question and response from the above website, an ABC poll re' the "free birth control" movement.  The responses on the site are chilling.  I am keenly aware that there are a gazillion knuckleheads that freely mouth off on every topic, regardless of their level of competency on said subject.  However, it is clear from this poll that this is not an isolated opinion:  children are a disease, they are nothing but trouble, they cause nothing but heartache, they are a huge economic expense....frankly, children have no redeeming value and they must not exist.

Go ahead, read the responses and see what you think.  We've come to a point in our nation where children are bad.  They must be prevented.  If we can't prevent pregnancy, we'll abort 'em.  

Small wonder our kids are cutting themselves, are depressed, are contemplating suicide, and seeking love through sex.  We've done a very good job telling them how much we don't like them.


  1. This is not about free birth control, it is about insurance coverage, and Medicaid, mandated to cover birth control. Women who exercise choice about the spacing of their children are statistically more likely to have healthier children and to live more economically empowered lives.

    What does that mean? Fewer abortions and fewer children using government programs like Medicaid (for which we pay), food stamps (for which we pay), housing vouchers (for which we pay), other public assistance programs (for which we pay).

    Also, this policy will hopefully postpone the age of women who give birth for the first time. If that happens, more women will achieve higher levels of education and be in a better position to care for the children they choose to have.

    What part of this is disagreeable to you?

  2. Roxy, thanks for the comment. If you look at the above link, read through some of the comments. Many of them make it clear that the respondents REALLY dislike children - they think of them as a disease to be prevented. That quote above is an actual one from the website.

    Besides, I don't see the point of free birth control. Birth control, in many forms, is free or almost free to almost all US women. It has not done anything to reduce the rate of births of children born into poverty. In fact, the availability of birth control has only increased the births of children in one parent households. Children born to only one parent are 66% more likely to grow up in poverty than children born to two parents.

    Abstinence is free, and 100% effective. People are not animals, and can indeed choose not to engage in sex when they are not ready to be parents.

Trying to "end run" God

If you're a football fan, you know what an end run is. From Merriam-Webster:
a football play in which the ballcarrier attempts to run wide around the end of the line We try to "end run" God a lot. I do. I figure I know better. I've got this - no need to worry the Big Guy about such a trivial thing.

Of course, it never works.

Like the puppy above, when we try and evade the tough obstacle (even though we KNOW we will eventually have to do it), we end up - well, off in the bushes.

But oh! How I wished my way worked. I'd love to take a flying leap and land smoothly and gracefully. People would be in awe, as if watching Simone Biles nail a balance beam routine that no one else would even attempt. I would shyly look down and blush - just lightly - and acknowledge (But humbly! Oh so humbly!) my achievement.

But no: I am the one pulling myself out of the bushes, scratches all over my legs and twigs in my hair. I'd hear that gentle but loving voice of God saying, &quo…

Crossing Guard

I saw you
as you guided
your little man across that busy street.

You were wearing some
big man boots
watching cars and lights.

Your little man had on
black sneakers and
a Mickey Mouse hat
that bounced
as he walked.

He wasn't watching nothing but
your big man boots
the white stripes of the crosswalk.

Just before
he got to the sidewalk again,
his step bounced a bit
- he hopped over
a spot where the asphalt broke.

You turned to look,
holding out a hand to
your little man.
Not rushed or angry,
just making sure
he got up
on that sidewalk.

Then you walked on,
in your big man boots,
face into a cold Michigan wind,
with the little man behind,
his hat bouncing.

Be Transfigured

From today's readings: 

Jesus took Peter, James, and his brother, John, and led them up a high mountain by themselves. And he was transfigured before them; his face shone like the and his clothes became white as light.

...we possess the prophetic message that is altogether reliable. You will do well to be attentive to it as to a lamp shining in a dark place until day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts.

Today we celebrate the Transfiguration. For whatever reason, Jesus brought three of His disciples to Mount Tabor to witness this miracle. They weren't sure what they were seeing, but they knew enough to throw themselves to the ground in the presence of Almighty God. St. Peter (who never did anything halfway) excitedly declares that he will erect tents on the mountain as a way of memorializing the event. But Jesus tells him and the others that they are not to tell people what they witnessed - at least not yet.

In the second reading, the requirement to be quiet has bee…
