Tell Angie's List that They Should Not Discriminate Against People of Faith...

Send a Note to Angie's List President re Indiana's Religious Freedom Restoration Act

++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Debra.decourcy@angieslist.com;

Dear Mr. Oesterle:

I am extremely disappointed to learn that Angie's List has chosen to practice religious discrimination. Shouldn't every American be free to work and live according to their faith without fear of punishment by the government?

Indiana's Religious Freedom Restoration Act is exactly the same law that is already in place and working just fine in 19 other states.

And, its language is identical in all fundamental respects to the 1993 federal RFRA signed into law by President Bill Clinton after it passed the House unanimously and the Senate 97-3.

Because your company opposes laws that protect religious liberty, I will not be using Angie's List in the future.
 
Regards.
 


Killing in Style...

Today's Washington comPost highlights a new abortion clinic -- one in which you can kill your child in style..or at least feel better about yourself after it.

It seems that the CaraFem, located in Friendship Heights, will greet you and offer you some tea and comfortable robes.  All the while offering you an abortion pill.  And they are proud of it.  

Can't kill a seal, a whale or even a darter snail but a human life.  No problemo.  

Isn't that special.

Affirming Children's Rights To Their Mothers And Fathers

Our colleague over at RESTORE DC CATHOLICISM posted an interesting talk taking place at Our Lady of Lourdes in Bethesda, MD. 

The talk, entitled "Affirming Children's Rights to Their Mothers and Fathers" deals with true marriage (a term which I have used, instead of traditional marriage for a while) and that all children need a mother and a father.
