It’s Time to Stop Pretending: Abortion Is the Ruthless Killing of an Innocent Human Being — Randy Alcorn is not shocked (though he is horrified) at the brutality found in the “house of horrors” abortion clinic in PA. If people would show the same amount of revulsion toward the FIFTY MILLION murders-by-abortion committed in this country since 1973 as they do toward the 8 murders charged against “Dr.” Gosnell (only a tiny fraction of the crimes of which he’s guilty), abortion would be eradicated tomorrow.

Six Rhetorical Secrets from JFK — On the 50th anniversary of JFK’s inauguration (which was yesterday), an expert in rhetoric breaks down for us one of the greatest speeches of all time.

The Waiting Game — A Polish research company has created a Monopoly-style game to teach children the hard facts about life under Communism. How quickly we forget…

Saying What You Believe Is Clearer Than Saying “Calvinist” — Labels tend to be too simplistic. John Piper (a Calvinist if ever there was one) exhorts us to articulate what we believe, rather than to identify ourselves with a label… particularly one so misunderstood as “Calvinist”. Even most staunch anti-Calvinists aren’t actually opposed to the doctrines of grace and the Bible in which they are found!

Why Leaders Cannot Afford to be Easily Offended — The ability to overlook offenses is not just a necessary quality for leaders (though it is certainly that); it is a choice to which all Christians are called.

Even if you know nothing of Twitter (follow @honeylocusts!) or Kanye West, this is pretty funny!
