Leverage That's Global

Alan's monthly letter for October 2013 Dear Friend, Christians in Egypt are suffering. Their country has had two violent revolutions and three presidents in the last two years. Currently, they have no president. Fifty churches have been burned in the last month, and scores of Christians were targeted for no reason. The country is in chaos. What can we do? Nothing.

The Vanishing Pro-Life Apologist

There's a growing taboo infecting crisis pregnancy centers around the country. Pro-lifers are getting tight-lipped on abortion. Here's why even CPC's are shying away from speaking frankly about the moral crime of the century. The last few years have witnessed a stunning development in the pro-life movement. More and more crisis pregnancy centers (CPCs) refuse to discuss abortion. A new wave of pro-life leaders insist that victory will not be gained in the court of public opinion if the debate centers principally on the morality of abortion.

I was kicking myself as I drove away because I wasn't more careful from a tactical perspective as I talked with my friends about abortion.

Religion and Euthanasia

Me: You believe that euthanasia should be allowed because it eases the psychological or physical suffering of a person. Is that correct?Him: Yes. Me: I object because I believe that life is a gift from God and we must answer to Him for how we use our life. Therefore, we don't have the liberty to take our life; it's not ours to take.Him: You're inappropriately bringing religion into the issue because my views are otherwise.

Putting a Stone in a Shoe

While waiting in line at the theater, I spoke to a young man named Ira who was a musician from Canada. I don't know what led up to it but somehow the issue of karma came up, the eastern religious concept of cause and effect. We were walking into the theater for the showing so I couldn't get into detail exploring the issue and trying to refute it so I used a tactic I call "Columbo" to get him thinking.
