  • Ingrid Schleuter links to this YouTube video from user Starlitshores entitled “Fetal Development” and refers to “the inauguration of our pro-death President and Rick Warren who will pray God’s blessings on him.” Reformata.org me-toos, without the embedded video.
  • Ingrid Schlueter comments on Warren’s statement on Obama invocation. I count six rhetorical questions, all about abortion. She also adds a link to a Jim Brown column at the American Family Network’s OneNewsNow claiming the Obama Administration is planning a “$1.5 billion ‘bailout’ of the abortion industry.” Brown quotes from the legislative action alert at the Susan B.

  • Ingrid Schlueter links to an editorial over at World Net Daily by Matt Barber entitled “Today’s Baal Worshipers.” In it he quotes John Mabray, pastor at Rivermont Evangelical Presbyterian Church in Lynchburg, VA: “The principal pillars of Baalism were child sacrifice, sexual immorality (both heterosexual and homosexual) and pantheism (reverence of creation over the Creator).” Barber goes on to say “But it’s not just self-styled ‘progressives’ or secular humanists who have adopted the fundamental pillars of Baalism. In these postmodern times, we’ve also been graced, regrettably, by the advent of counter-biblical ’emergent Christianity’ or ‘quasi-Christianity,’ as I prefer to call it. ” Barber is among other things associate dean of the Liberty University Law School.
