Election Results

The cries of the babies grow louder

Overall, election day went very well in Ohio. However, we had two notable and tragic losses:

Greg Landsman’s victory over Republican Steve Chabot was a painful loss for conservatives in general and the lives of the preborn specifically.
It’s interesting to note that Landsman’s victory speech talked a lot about “freedom” and “freedom to choose.” He was talking about abortion of course. What he failed to explain was his support for the “freedom” to kill and the “freedom to choose” death for innocent human beings.
Had Landsman been around in the 1860’s, I suppose he would have been arguing for the “freedom” of the slave owners and the “freedom” of white people “to choose” to own slaves. Well, that was the position of the Democrat Party and its KKK wing. The only thing that has changed is the class of people (preborn) that they refuse to recognize for basic human rights. Unfortunately, they are continuing to double down on death.

Jenn Giroux ran to replace the term limited Tom Brinkman in the statehouse. Representative Brinkman had always been a leader for the right to life. Likewise, Jenn Giroux is in that same mold and would have continued to fight for human rights for the preborn.

And the cries of the babies grew louder.

And Speaking of Homicide by Abortion…

Pro-abortion violence doesn’t stop at killing babies: Much more violence against Pro-life people than against Pro-choice since the Supreme Court Leak on May 3rd: 135 Attacks on Pro-life people between the Supreme Court Leak on May 3rd and September 24th, 2022, Only 6 attacks were identified in the other direction

The Upside-Down World of “Protections” and “Healthcare”

In a recent news article, I saw a reference to the high court returning the abortion debate to the states as “the overturning of federal abortion protections.” Really? That same reporter would have argued that the Civil War (or perhaps the 13th Amendment) overturned federal “protections” for slavery. I’m beginning to understand the frustrations that the abolitionists must have felt by the then-media.
In this upside-down world, abortion is now considered “protection” and called “reproductive healthcare” and sex change operations are called “gender affirming healthcare” and taxpayers are paying for it. See Isaiah 5:20.

Christian Nationalism

The sign said “Stop Christian Nationalism.”

The sign was held by a pro-abortion activist. I had to think for a moment about what that meant: Christians are followers of Jesus Christ and nationalists are patriots who are proud of their country. They want to Make America Great Again and put the interests of Americans first. That describes most of my social circle.
Well, we aren’t the problem. We are the answer to the problem. And abortion is a human rights violation and a crime against humanity.

Union Township welcomes new and growing businesses

Kroger: The Union Township Board of Trustees approved Kroger’s plans to demolish Sears and build a new 123,722 square foot Kroger Marketplace store detached from the mall. The store will include a Starbucks, drive through pharmacy, expanded deli, expanded bakery, a Murray Cheese section, sushi, expanded adult beverage section, apparel, home goods, expanded grocery section, and a Kroger fuel center with 18 fuel pumps. The fuel will be on the Wendy’s side of the parking lot. The northeast side of the store will have a parking area for on-line pickup. The current Kroger store on Eastgate Boulevard will likely close sometime next year in coordination with opening the new Kroger Marketplace store.
