We Give Thanks to Almighty God for This Great Nation and Our Rights and Privileges

During this great American holiday, let us remember to whom we owe thanks!  Similar to their efforts to take Christ out of Christmas, many in society and the media want to take God out of Thanksgiving. When we gather around our tables and talk to our neighbors and fellow church members let us remind everyone to whom we give thanks, our good and loving God.  In many homes, good and well-meaning people will look at each other and give thanks to their family, they may even give thanks to the founding fathers and to our past and present military for all the blessings they have fought and died to preserve.  There is nothing wrong with that but we must never forget the Great Provider of all these things - Almighty God.  Make sure your family knows, from whom all blessings flow! 

Happy Thanksgiving!

The Real Cost of ObamaCare -- The Loss of Good Doctors
Soon I fear that unbeknownst to most Americans, the good, smart, well-rested physicians won't be there to take care of us. I decided recently to download a slightly abridged version of The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act to find out how this new legislation might affect caregivers...read more.


RU-486 Now Safe?
It caused a bit of a stir in 1991 when three "pro-choice" feminists came out with a book warning of the dangers of the chemical abortifacient RU-486. "RU486: Misconception, Myths and Morals," written by Renate Klein, a biologist and social scientist from Deakin University in Melbourne, Australia, Janice Raymond, a professor of women's studies from the University of Amherst (Massachusetts), and Lynette Dumble, a member of the University of Melbourne's Department of Surgery, won awards and received some momentary coverage in the press. But ultimately, the pro-abortion establishment pushed back and plowed ahead, ignoring the warnings...read more.
