Happy Birthday to my love!

This is a short post to wish my Hunney the best Birthday ever!

To commemorate this auspicious occasion I have decided to post a series of pictures of my love through the years.

I’m late. I wish I was there. Act now supplies are limited!

Your probably asking yourself what in the world do all three of the above have to do with one another.  Let me illuminate you.

  1. I needed to write this post yesterday
  2. It’s about the NCFIC.orgSufficiency of Scripture Conference” and I REALLY wish I were there.
  3. They are selling the audio messages from the conference @ a presale discount until the conference ends (in a few hours) so the “supplies” of discounted audio sets are very limited. Hurry up and you can still get yours for a 22% discount — FOR A LIMITED TIME!!!

But wait there’s more! (no really there is )

Giveaway

Due to my high level connections at the NCFIC I have been able to arrange to give away 3 sets of the full conference audio! Now I’m having the giveaway for the sole purpose of helping to spread the word about all the hard word the men over at the NCFIC are doing, specifically the “2009 Sufficiency of Scripture Conference“. So if you will help me to spread the word I will enter you in a drawing for one of three audio sets from the 2009 SOS conference.

Here is how I’d like you to help.

Blog, Facebook, or Twitter links to the NCFIC.org blog and conference audio sale. Then comeback here and leave a comment to let me know where and how you helped get the word out by leaving a comment and a link to your post.

We are a bloody people.

Bear with me there are extensive quotes below from several different articles.

From Whitehouse .gov

Speaking shortly after the confirmation, the President said he was grateful for the Senate’s confirmation, and gave special thanks the Senate Judiciary Committee for their hard work. He then reflected on Judge Sotomayor’s qualifications, and the historic nature of her confirmation:

….They’ve gauged her respect for the proper role of each branch of our government, her commitment to faithfully apply the law to the facts at hand, and her determination to protect our core constitutional rights and freedoms….

This is a role that the Senate has played for more than two centuries, helping to ensure that “equal justice under the law” is not merely a phrase inscribed above our courthouse door, but a description of what happens every single day inside the courtroom...And in the end, the outcome of your case will be determined by nothing more or less than the strength of your argument and the dictates of the law.

These core American ideals — justice, equality, and opportunity — are the ideals she’s fought for throughout her career…

You can read the President’s full statement here.

(emphasis mine and every time I read one of the phrases I thought “Unless you are an unborn child”)

In a National Review Online article titled “Death by Privacy” Contributing Editor Mark R. Levin tells us

“Finally, Blackmun focused on his legal rationale in Roe. He began with a review of the right to privacy, writing, in part:

The Constitution does not explicitly mention any right of privacy. In a line of decisions, however…the Court has recognized that a right of personal privacy, or a guarantee of certain areas or zones of privacy, does exist under the Constitution. In varying contexts, the Court or individual Justices have, indeed, found at least the roots of that right in the First Amendment…in the Fourth and Fifth Amendments…in the penumbras of the Bill of Rights…in the Ninth Amendment…or in the concept of liberty guaranteed by the first section of the Fourteenth Amendment….These decisions make it clear that only personal rights that can be deemed “fundamental” or “implicit in the concept of ordered liberty”…are included in this guarantee of personal privacy. They also make it clear that the right has some extension to activities relating to marriage… procreation…contraception…family relationships…and child rearing and education….

Blackmun felt that the right of privacy, wherever it comes from, includes the right to abortion. Do not look any further for legal argument amidst the voluminous opinion, because it does not exist. Perhaps the extensive historical analysis was included to compensate for the lack of legal analysis.

But Blackmun went further, and the Court followed. Not satisfied to strike down the Texas law, Blackmun began to write what seemed to be a new federal statute. According to Blackmun’s opinion, a woman’s right to abortion could only be abridged by a compelling state interest. In effect, Blackmun argued that there was an inverse relationship between a woman’s interest and the state’s interest that ranged across a spectrum from conception to birth. Therefore, the state’s interest at conception was minimal but increased as the pregnancy progressed, reaching its peak at the end of the pregnancy. A woman’s interest, paramount at conception, began to give some ground to the state’s interest in protecting the fetus as it matured toward being able to live outside of the mother. But Blackmun specifically declared that the unborn child was not a “person” under the Fourteenth Amendment, and thus had no equal protection rights.”

During her confimation hearings Rupublicans asked Judge Sotomayor how she felt about the status of abortion in America.

“The court’s decision in Planned Parenthood vs. Casey reaffirmed the court holding of Roe. That is the precedent of the court and settled in terms of the holding of the court.”  – Sonya Sotamayor speaking before the Senate Judiciary Comittee during her confirmation hearings.

You cannot make immorality moral by court precedent or legislation. Abortion remains an evil, murderous thing whether or not the court and the legislative branch.

So in honor of Judge Sotomayor’s historic confirmation I am posting a video that puts a live face on the “private” act of abortion, and saying a prayer. I am prayng God will grant repentance in time to spare us from chastisment.

Now I will be joining the 40 days for life campaign this fall.

How about you?

Big Giveaway

This one isn’t a Vision Forum giveaway, it’s a GenevaBiblepages.com giveaway, and we need your help.

The Skinny:

We over ordered – double actually – our stock, but instead of sending it back we decided to keep it and put our inventory on sale. We are running a 40% off sale over at Geneva Bible Pages.  We’ve even created a special Family Bundle at 50% off!

What you can do:

Blog, Twitter, Facebook,Digg, do whatever it takes to help us get the word out about this sale. We need to move this inventory fast – like in the next 2 weeks and we are prepared to make it worth your time to help us.

What’s in it for you? Besides a great deal on a really cool gift, that is.

There’s also 400 bucks –  well up to 400 dollars retail in products from GenevaBiblePages.com.

Blog about our sale and giveaway (or facebook or twitter) and then come back here and leave a comment with a link to your efforts.  We will take entries until midnight June 17, then we will select a winner to pick up to 4 individual items from GenevaBiblePages.com absolutely free.   Our most expensive item sells for $94.99 each so that’s practically 400 dollars in retail.

But wait!   There’s more! (Now where have I heard that before? )

I will actually let the winner choose 200 dollars cash instead of up to 400 dollars in merchandise if they prefer.  Would you choose filthy lucre instead of a set of framed 400 year old Bible pages?

😉

As always shipping is entirely free on GenevaBiblePages.comfree
