With the increase number of verbal attacks on parents and the all out assault (indoctrination) of our children (grandchildren in our case here at FSM) we thought this an appropriate topic to follow.

Lawsuit Targets Massachusetts Public School System for Racial Segregation, Censoring Students

A Massachusetts public school system is actively promoting racially segregated student groups and a “bias reporting program” that encourages students to report instances of their peers’ biases to school officials for disciplinary action, a lawsuit filed Tuesday alleges…

This is just one example of the problems with “Cancel Culture”, “Critical Race Theory (CRT)” and “Wokeism” being pushed by the left in America. Does the U.S. have a PAST history of racism, undeniably, but so does EVERY other nation on the earth. Do we still have issues that can be improved upon, absolutely but not by decisiveness. The following is from The Mississippi Center for Public Policy and explains the dangers of CRT.

Trading Up: Our Case For Trade Schools

YouTube restricts Prager University videos - Civitas Institute

Are universities the only ticket to a meaningful and financially rewarding career? Or is there another way? Opportunities in the trades are plentiful and profitable—setting young people up for rapid success compared to expensive and time-consuming college degrees. PragerU’s latest short documentary, Trading Up, informs people about the valuable benefits of a career in the trades and the great pride trade specialists derive from their work—despite our current culture’s narrative that “everyone must attend a university.”

Here’s to You, Mr. Robinson…

Talk about misreading your audience. Democrats have been scrambling for months to find an answer for the party’s rift with suburban parents over Joe Biden’s radical education policy. But instead of backing off and listening to the local outcry, they’ve dug in — vilifying parents and deepening the divide between Washington Democrats and the rest of America. Now, by trying to sack a man who’s championing the parents’ cause, they’ve given Republicans exactly what the president didn’t want: more ammunition…

Millennials are not a pro-life generation. Here’s the data

It does not get much sadder than this, to learn that less than 1/4 of all this generation consider life valuable speaks volumes for the evils of media and public education indoctrination.


The month of October kicks off “Respect Life Month” in the Catholic Church.  With the U.S. Supreme Court scheduled to hear the Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization case on December 1, Christians across the country have begun praying in earnest for the case that could overturn Roe v. Wade. How will Americans react to the possibility of the Court altering the long-standing Roe ruling concerning abortion?

Many Americans wonder why abortion remains such a high-profile issue after all these years. The explanation is simple. Almost 50 years ago, seven appointed—not elected—justices decided that killing unborn babies should be a constitutionally-protected act. Since that time, more than 62 million unborn babies have been killed in our nation…

CONSTITUTION DAY

Think the U.S. Constitution 'Subverts Democracy'? Think Again

Today September 17th marks the day, 234 years ago the founders of the US signed the Constitution.

The U.S. Constitution is, regardless of what many want to think, the Highest Law of the land. It says that any “government” official that claims policy, rule, or law contrary to it is illegal.

Supreme Court Justice Thurgood Marshall cited in the Marbury v. Madison decision, any government act “repugnant to the constitution is void.” The term “void” means “having no legal force or binding effect.” Today that seems to be an everyday occurrence. With executive orders and department policies being issues without forethought.

Pray for America, educate yourselves, your families, friends, and neighbors on the Constitution.

Mayor tells school board members to resign or ‘be charged’ after saying judge confirmed ‘child pornography’ was part of high school’s college-credit course

ARE YOU PAYING ATTENTION TO YOUR CHILDS SCHOOLWORK?


Blaze Media

Mayor Craig Shubert of Hudson, Ohio, sat in front of a microphone and issued a brief but pointed public statement to the members of the city’s board of education earlier this week. “It has come to my attention that your educators are distributing essentially what is child pornography in the classroom,” Shubert said during Monday night …

Teaching 9/11 to the Emerging Generation

BP Email Header-01

Like many of you, I remember exactly where I was on Tuesday, September 11, 2001. I was preparing to teach a class of college freshmen on the topic of Christian worldview. Obviously, my teaching plans for that day changed, but this was a tragic example of just how much worldviews matter. 

I remember the chaos and confusion. I remember thinking this had changed our world forever, and it did. This was an event of national significance, as serious as  the attack on Pearl Harbor or the assassination of JFK. Yet I’ve talked to so many parents and grandparents over the last several months who have realized that 9/11 is not really a significant part of the story of rising generations...

Diary of an Unborn Child

National Right to Life

With all the so called “controversy” surrounding the Texas Heartbeat Law, here are some facts about the development (growth) of an unborn child. Note Day 22 and Week 20!


The development of an unborn child from conception to birth

Fertilization! A new, unique human being is formed!Fertilization! A new, unique human being is formed!

Day 1:  fertilization: all human chromosomes are present; unique human life begins.

Day 6:  embryo begins implantation in the uterus.

Day 22:  heart begins to beat with the child’s own blood, often a different type than the mothers’.

Week 3:  By the end of third week the child’s backbone spinal column and nervous system are forming.  The liver, kidneys and intestines begin to take shape.

Week 4:  By the end of week four the child is ten thousand times larger than the fertilized egg.

Week 5:  Eyes, legs, and hands begin to develop.

Week 6:  Brain waves are detectable; mouth and lips are present; fingernails are forming.

Week 7:  Eyelids, and toes form, nose distinct.  The baby is kicking and swimming.

Week 8:  Every organ is in place, bones begin to replace cartilage, and fingerprints begin to form.  By the 8th week the baby can begin to hear.

Weeks 9 and 10:  Teeth begin to form, fingernails develop.  The baby can turn his head, and frown.  The baby can hiccup.

Weeks 10 and 11:  The baby can “breathe” amniotic fluid and urinate.  Week 11 the baby can grasp objects placed in its hand; all organ systems are functioning.  The baby has a skeletal structure, nerves, and circulation.

Week 12:  The baby has all of the parts necessary to experience pain, including nerves, spinal cord, and thalamus.  Vocal cords are complete.  The baby can suck its thumb.

Unborn baby at approximately 12 weeks.Unborn baby at approximately 12 weeks.

Week 14:  At this age, the heart pumps several quarts of blood through the body every day.

Week 15:  The baby has an adult’s taste buds.

Month 4:  Bone Marrow is now beginning to form.  The heart is pumping 25 quarts of blood a day.  By the end of month 4 the baby will be 8-10 inches in length and will weigh up to half a pound.

Week 17:  The baby can have dream (REM) sleep.

Week 19:  Babies can routinely be saved at 21 to 22 weeks after fertilization, and sometimes they can be saved even younger.

Week 20:   At 20 weeks the baby recognizes its’ mothers voice. At 20 weeks, the unborn child is capable of feeling pain. This is also the earliest at which partial-birth abortion is performed. 😥😪

Months 5 and 6:  The baby practices breathing by inhaling amniotic fluid into its developing lungs. The baby will grasp at the umbilical cord when it feels it.  Most mothers feel an increase in movement, kicking, and hiccups from the baby.  Oil and sweat glands are now functioning.  The baby is now twelve inches long or more, and weighs up to one and a half pounds.

Months 7 through 9:  Eyeteeth are present.  The baby opens and closes his eyes.  The baby is using four of the five senses (vision, hearing, taste, and touch.)  He knows the difference between waking and sleeping, and can relate to the moods of the mother.  The baby’s skin begins to thicken, and a layer of fat is produced and stored beneath the skin.  Antibodies are built up, and the baby’s heart begins to pump 300 gallons of blood per day.  Approximately one week before the birth the baby stops growing, and “drops” usually usually head down into the pelvic cavity.
