A thought for your afternoon...

"While we are thinking of great works for God, God is only thinking of great love from us."

Strange Notions: Brandon Vogt's latest venture

The excellent Brandon Vogt has finally unveiled an online evangelistic project that he's kept under wraps for two years now: Strange Notions.

Strange Notions gets its name from St. Paul's speech at the Areopagus in Acts 17:16-34. There he proclaimed the Resurrection to the intellectual elite of the ancient world, who responded by saying, "you bring some strange notions to our ears; we should like to know what these things mean." helps those asking the same thing today. Open-minded atheists will encounter reasonable arguments for God and his Church, maybe for the first time in their lives, and like St. Paul's listeners they’ll leave intrigued by these strange notions.
Watch the video trailer, check out the site itself, and spread the word!!

Whatta guy! Struggles with SSA, but reunited with divorced wife for the sake of their children. Supports traditional marriage.

"We have been under one roof for over two years now.... We did it because reason led us to resist selfish impulses and to seek the best for our children."

"Over several years, intellectual honesty led me to some unexpected conclusions: (1) Creating a family with another man is not completely equal to creating a family with a woman, and (2) denying children parents of both genders at home is an objective evil. Kids need and yearn for both."

Read his inspiring story and right-to-the-point critique of same-sex "marriage" here.

Gosnell should either go free as a constant reminder of our absurd double-standards, or we should rectify our thinking.

"I want Kermit Gosnell walking the streets. I want him free because there is nothing he did that is incompatible with a pro-abortion ideologyI want him to serve as a constant reminder that abortion and infanticide are the same thing, and it was the Supreme Court's idea -- supported by around half of the citizens of this country -- that some doctors are murderers who get to be free citizens."
