Solution may be a pro-life nation

Based on the Life Choices Annual Report for the fiscal year 2007-2008, there were 8,530 abortions-on-demand in Shelby County. Since all of these are performed in three inner-city clinics, I assumed most are African-American babies that are murdered. I was right. Based on the statistics by the state, 81 percent are minority children that are killed.

Now tell me: Why does the black community allow such a genocide of their unborn? Maybe because the Democratic Party is being bankrolled by Planned Parenthood, who runs these clinics. We know that President Barack Obama, U.S. Rep. Steve Cohen and many of the Democratic politicians have received millions of dollars in campaign contributions from abortion groups. They will never rid Memphis of its holocaust of the unborn. It will take the actions of pro-life Christians to fight against the wicked abortion supporters.

One of my solutions is for all red states to withdraw from the Union and form a pro-life nation where babies of all races will be protected by the original U.S. Constitution and the Bible.

Session on homosexuality fails to present other side

The Spirit and Place Festival recently ended. The event certainly has a number of intriguing experiences to offer Indianapolis each year, but I have a complaint. Two years ago I attended a session on homosexuality at which a Presbyterian minister explained that the Bible does not really consider homosexuality a sin. When I got a chance to comment after the talk, I suggested that the Spirit and Place organizers ought to present both sides of an issue if they were going to deal with something so controversial. But for at least three years now the Polis Center, which organizes this event, has presented homosexual-affirming talks, never even hinting that there is another point of view.

For the Polis Center to present only one side of the picture does a grave disservice to homosexual people, some of whom would love to know that the homosexual lifestyle may not be their only answer.

Suffering from Palin envy

What is it about Sarah Palin that gets liberals all bent out of shape? Is it because of natural beauty (doesn't have to have a "Nancy Pelosi Botox makeover")? Or is it because she is cordial, witty and always smiling, instead of grimacing and angry like Hillary Clinton?

I suspect it is because she offers planning and progress, instead of blaming all of our ills on Presidents George W. Bush and Ronald Reagan.

Red praise not surprising

Anita Dunn, Barack Obama's White House communications director, recently praised the Communist butcher Mao Zedong. Dunn was awed by his taking over China against all odds, and said Mao is one of two philosophers that she "often goes to." However, Dunn should know that Mao could not have succeeded were it not for the interference of President Harry Truman and his representative, George C. Marshall.

U. S. State Department leftists demanded that Chiang Kai-shek and the Nationalists form a "coalition government" with the Communists. "Coalition governments" permit the Communists to "take over," and Mao predicted that a coalition would destroy both Chiang and American imperialism.

Marshall imposed an arms embargo on the Nationalists while the Communists were supplied by the Soviets. Marshall boasted that he had disarmed 39 of Chiang's divisions with "the stroke of a pen." Free China was turned into Red China, which butchered 60 million of its own people.

Praise for a Communist butcher by an administration official is not surprising. Consider that communist enemies of freedom such as Castro, Chavez, Ortega and Putin, have praised Obama.

Associations with radicals of ACORN, Jeremiah Wright, Bill Ayers, Father Pfleger, and appointment of the communist Van Jones and assorted other radicals permit us, in the words of the noted columnist, Thomas Sowell, "to connect the dots and stop denying the obvious."
