Just when you thought it was safe, just when you learned that adult stem cells would actually do more than embryonic stem cells but now it is learned that human embryos have been created in the lab and for what purpose you ask? Why to destroy them and to harvest their cells. By the way no one has ever proven that embryonic stem cells actually do the things that adult stem cells have actually accomplished. Also take note that they have cloned a human by doing this. Even though the embryo wasn’t allowed to come to full term. “O, brave new world that has such people in’t!” as Shakespeare said or perhaps “Hell is empty and all the devils are here.” From the same play. Either way can we stopper this bottle or will it grow to further monstrousness?
You recall the UK hospitals that used the remains of aborted babies to fuel their facilities well now it has been learned that an incinerator in Oregon has been burning the bodies of aborted babies from Canada. BTW that link will say abortion waste which is political correct speak for saying the bodies of aborted babies. The company has stopped the burning saying they are going to get to the bottom of how long this has been going on. But notice this:
Brentano, however, noted that the county ordinance that sets the parameters for what can be accepted at the waste-to-energy plant allows for all human tissue.
So the county government of Oregon doesn’t have any problem burning aborted babies or for that matter any human tissue at all, Makes me wonder how the Jewish residents feel about that?
Turning our eyes to music it appears that Dan Haseltine the lead singer of Jars of Clay has come out for gay marriage quoting from an article in Metro:
“Not meaning to stir things up BUT… is there a non-speculative or non ‘slippery slope’ reason why gays shouldn’t marry? I don’t hear one.” He went on to write “I’m trying to make sense of the conservative argument. But it doesn’t hold up to basic scrutiny. Feels akin to women’s suffrage. I just don’t see a negative effect to allowing gay marriage. No societal breakdown, no war on traditional marriage. ?? Anyone?”
By the way that is from his twitter feed.
And frankly I think that James White has answered that statement the best here is his latest show where he discusses what Haseltine says: The Dividing Line
I really can’t add anything to what Dr. White has said other than Mr. Haseltine’s ability to exegete the texts of scripture is called to question and perhaps the elders of his church should have a talk with him.
And today’s Frenetic Friday shall end with News from the Christian Weird. I have been to many different churches worship services has been held from barns to outdoors to homes. But a strip club?
Welcome to Guelph Ontario Canada where Jack Ninaber and his wife Sharon decided they would host a Christian fellowship service at the unconventional space. Where did they choose? Why the local strip club called the Manor. Yes Easter service was held at the strip club because and I quote “The idea behind the service is to bring religion to those who don’t feel comfortable seeking it out. In particular, they are hoping to reach tenants of Sue’s Inn, a transitional house for people trying to get back on their feet.” Yes and once again someone has decided to compromise with the world in order to reach the world. Theology matters people. Keep it in mind.
