‘Stop thinking of her as a person’ that's what Planned Parenthood is TEACHING Children about SEX..."people are animals"

On their Facebook page today, Planned Parenthood posted this New York Times op-ed written by a young man reflecting, as he takes his girlfriend Sam to buy the abortifacient hormone bomb known as the morning-after pill, upon his long fight to overcome his solid moral upbringing.

Student author Andrew Limbong, who grew up in a strict Christian family from Indonesia, describes his experience getting over moral scruple to have uncommitted sex (in accord with “Western ideals”) as the “ham sandwich effect,” or the unique spiritual gagging that occurs when sin is culturally shoved down one’s throat. He names the effect after a young Muslim friend who dared to eat a forbidden ham sandwich, the first of which he vomited out before the sense of repulsion was blunted after several attempts. (Planned Parenthood would call this experience when applied to sex as “staying true to one’s self and moving forward when you’re ready.”)

One important way to silence and surmount the protestations of one’s conscience and to have premarital sex, one friend told the author, is to stop treating your partner like a human being with value equal to your own:

His advice? Breathe a lot, do some push-ups and don’t really think about it. “Stop thinking about her as a person,” he told me. “People are animals, and having sex is a natural thing that animals do all the time.” …

University Of Chicago Promotes S&M PornTo Students

Americans for Truth About Homosexuality (AFTAH) founder Peter LaBarbera visited the University of Chicago upon learning that the school had funded an exhibit called the "Leather Library," which featured books and magazines about sadomasochism.

"Incredibly, the university has now allowed an official student group dedicated to sadomasochism. This [is a] consensually violent, degrading sex fetish, and the university funded this Leather Library exhibit," he laments.

LaBarbera took pictures of some of the material [LINK CAUTION ADVISORY] available to young people at the exhibit, which displayed themes of incest and pedophilia.

"There were bestiality books there, and even one that is too disgusting to mention -- a form of pornography which is the most vile in the world, eroticizing so-called 'snuff' films, where a person is murdered in the process of pornography," the AFTAH president reports.

He says he has learned that once the floodgates to homosexuality are opened, little can be done to stop what follows. And he concludes that this exhibit, for which developers hope to raise enough money to take nationwide, is an example of that.

Sears Pulls Porn Movies Off Their Website After Families Complain

Sears, long famous for its catalogs and Craftsman tools, today within the span of a few minutes jerked hundreds of pornographic DVDs from its online store after outraged families flooded the company with complaints.

The campaign had been launched by officials with the American Family Association, which alerted its several million constituents to the situation only hours earlier.

"When AFA reported Sears was selling pornographic DVDs on its website, Sears initially told AFA supporters that it was untrue," a followup announcement from AFA chief Tim Wildmon said.

Finally, Sears called AFA on May 6 after AFA supporters flooded the company with calls and emails. During the call, Sears again vigorously denied they were selling pornography. However, AFA clearly showed Sears the material on their very own website!"

He said when Sears realized the mistake, the company issued a statement to AFA:

"We sincerely apologize to any customers who were offended. Our agreements with our vendors prohibit content that is pornographic or sexually explicit in nature. We are removing these items that do not meet our guidelines. We regularly review our processes to ensure compliance by our vendors, and we encourage our customers and community to help us flag any items that they believe might violate our guidelines."

AFA said within the space of half an hour, hundreds of the pornographic DVDs disappeared from the Sears site.

Mission Trip To Coasta Rica Ends In Tragedy For 3 Teens

Marianela Jimenez - Associated Press Writer - 5/7/2011 6:40:00 AM

SAN JOSE, Costa Rica - Kai Lamar wanted nothing more than to serve God and help others, so his family had no reservations about him traveling from the U.S. to Costa Rica to take part in a religious mission there.

"It was an opportunity to show his love for the Lord and to do what he thought he was called to do," his mother, Shari Lamar, said in a telephone interview Friday. "So we supported him wholeheartedly."

But the lives of her son and two of his high school classmates were cut short when they were swept out to sea while taking a beach break during their stay. On Friday, a Costa Rican coast guard patrol recovered Kai Lamar's body in waters off Bejuco beach on the Pacific coast, said Jesus Escalona, Red Cross assistant director of operations.

The bodies of the other two students, Caity Jones and James Smith, were found earlier this week.

A strong undertow pulled the three away from shore Wednesday afternoon, according to a statement from their school, Patriot Preparatory Academy in Columbus, Ohio. They were among eight juniors and seniors on a trip not sponsored by the school.

Escalona said the body was found in roughly the same area where Smith's body was recovered a day earlier. He said the body fit Lamar's description and rescuers called off the search.

The bodies were taken to a morgue where relatives or U.S. Embassy officials can claim them. The U.S. Embassy has declined to comment, citing privacy restrictions.

Wednesday, the day before they were to return to Ohio, was a free day, and students were given a choice of whether they wanted to ride horses near a waterfall or go to the beach, the brother of one of the students told an Ohio television station.

"Unfortunately, it was just a fatal mistake," Smith's brother Nick Smith told WCMH-TV in Columbus.

He said the trip was the first mission for his brother and that he had worked to raise every penny needed to pay for the trip.

"That kid was more driven to do things for God than I've seen anybody at his age ever. ... He was doing things and so committed that honestly, in 16 years, he finished everything he needed to do in this life," Smith told the station.

A message seeking comment was left by The Associated Press on Friday at a phone listing for Smith's parents.

Shari Lamar said that while her family was saddened by her son's death, they found some comfort in knowing he had fulfilled a wish inspired by his strong Christian faith.

"He and his friends had the time of their life doing the work," she said. "It just brought them great joy. They were phenomenal kids. ... It's sad, but we just trust God."

Lamar said she had no regrets about allowing her son to make the trip.

"We wouldn't have done anything differently, because it was something that he wanted to do," she said.

The three students swept away, all juniors, were described as active in school and the community, well-liked and good students.

Arab Christians Moving Away From Muslim Communities

STERLING HEIGHTS, Mich. — Arab Christians here are trying to separate themselves from a boisterous Muslim community that has served as a punching bag for “terrorism” stereotypes since Sept. 11.

Many have moved to Detroit’s northern suburbs — Sterling Heights, Madison Heights, Farmington Hills and the Bloomfield areas — to get away from the high concentration of Muslims in Dearborn, said Pastor Haytham Abi Haydar of Arabic Fellowship Alliance Church. Other Christians, he said, have turned their backs on their Arab heritage and integrated with American culture.

But just like Middle Easterners often assume America is a Christian nation, many Americans assume all Arabs are Muslims. That’s made life in a post-9/11 world difficult for a group of people who is proving religion has no borders.

“On many, many, many occasions, if you’re an Arab, you might as well be a Muslim to many people here,” Mr. Abi Haydar said. “Unfortunately, the majority don’t see the dynamic that Christianity came from the Middle East, that Jesus was from the Middle East.”

Mr. Abi Haydar said some Americans know the difference and do not stereotype. “You can’t label all Americans as ignorant,” he said.

Still, there are many pastors and churchgoers who assume that all Arab Christians are converts from Islam, when, in fact, many have been Christians all their lives.

“I’ve seen a lot of Christians in churches here who don’t even know the difference between Arab Christians and Arab Muslims,” Mr. Abi Haydar said. “They think, ‘You’re an Arab. That means you’re a Muslim, or you converted from Islam.”

Many of these problems were brought on by al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden, when he started drawing attention to the Arab community after he masterminded the 9/11 attacks. Arab Christians hope the tension dies now that he’s dead, so they can move on.

Navy Authorizes Chaplains To Perform Same Sex Marriages In Naval Chapels

( – Anticipating the elimination of the military ban on homosexuality, the Office of the Chief of Navy Chaplains has decided that same-sex couples in the Navy will be able to get married in Navy chapels, and that Navy chaplains will be allowed to perform the ceremonies -- if homosexual marriage is legal in the state where the unions are to be performed.

The advisory came in the form of an April 13 memo issued to all chaplains, in which the Chief of Navy Chaplains, Admiral Michael Tidd, said the Chaplain Corps was revising its Tier I training manuals, which had previously indicated that same-sex marriages are not authorized on federal property.

Instead, Tidd called for chaplains to comply with service-wide efforts underway to be more accepting of homosexuality and same-sex marriage as the end of the military policy on homosexuality nears.

Citing "additional legal review" by Navy attorneys, the admiral said the Navy "has concluded that, generally speaking, base facility use is sexual orientation neutral.”

“If the base is located in a state where same-sex marriage is legal, then the base facilities may be used to celebrate the marriage,” the admiral’s directive states.

The admiral’s memo also gives chaplains permission to "marry" homosexual couples – but would not force them to perform ceremines.

“Regarding chaplain participation, consistent with the tenets of his or her religious organization, a chaplain may officiate a same-sex, civil marriage: if it is conducted in accordance with the laws of the state which permits same-sex marriages or union; and if the chaplain is, according to applicable state and local laws, otherwise fully certified to officiate that state’s marriages.”

Navy spokeswoman Alana Garas confirmed the change was ordered, but told that the document “does not reflect a change in policy, but a change in Tier I training for Navy chaplains that looks forward to when Don’t Ask Don’t Tell is removed”— something which will not happen, she said, until 60 days after the president, the secretary of defense and the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff certify to Congress that repeal will not harm military readiness.

But Rep. Todd Akin (R-Mo.), a member of the House Armed Services Committee, is concerned that, in its haste to “hustle-in homosexuality,” the Navy may be violating federal law – the Defense of Marriage Act.

“Offering up federal facilities and federal employees for same-sex marriage violates DOMA, which is still the law of the land and is bound to the duties of our military, including chaplains,” Steve Taylor, communications director for Akin, told

“The administration and various states may be operating as if DOMA doesn't exist, but the Navy and Marine Corps and all the Armed Services are sworn to obey the law, which this new instruction violates,” he added.

Tom McCLusky, senior vice president of government relations at the Family Research Council, agreed that the Navy is totally ignoring DOMA, part of which defines marriage for federal government purposes as being between one man and one woman.

“You’re talking about government facilities and government employees, so it would seem to be a direct violation of DOMA,” McClusky told “I’m not seeing a lot of wiggle room there.”

He said conservatives had warned months ago that the push to repeal the military ban on homosexuality would lead to efforts to introduce same-sex marriage -- but were dismissed at the time.

“This is what we thought was going to happen, and unfortunately now its happening,” McClusky said.
