  • Vaccination and Seizures

    | February 29, 2008

    Just the other day, a mother told me about her young daughter’s seizures. I wondered why this was happening. This link explains a lot.

    Also, the link between vaccination and autism was discussed on Larry King the other night.

    Abortion and Suicide

    Talented British Artist Hangs Herself Due To Grief After Abortion
    http://www.lifesitenews.com/ldn/2008/feb/08022204.html

    “Emma Beck committed suicide on February 1, 2007 after aborting her twin babies in September 2006. She left a suicide note which said, ‘Living is hell for me. I should never have had an abortion. I see now I would have been a good mum. I told everyone I didn’t want to do it, even at the hospital. I was frightened, now it is too late. I died when my babies died. I want to be with my babies – they need me, no one else does.’”

    How very sad.

    Emma’s mother said, “She was only going ahead with the abortion because Ben (the estranged common-law father) did not want the twins. She was pleased when she became pregnant, but Ben reacted badly to the news. I believe this is what led Emma to take her own life, because she could not live with what she had done.”

    The man’s reaction is often devestating to young pregnant women. These days, men expect women to be ready and available for sex without consequences.

    I don’t understand why people expect to have sex and not get pregnant. I think it is absolutely ridiculous when people ask pregnant women, “Was it planned?” Well, duh… I had sex and pouff! I’m pregnant! How did that happen?

    Stoning Children to Death

    Iran: Father ‘stones 14-year-old daughter to death’
    http://www.adnkronos.com/AKI/English/Politics/?id=1.0.1889385027

    The above article reminded me of the following verses:

    “If a man has a stubborn and rebellious son who does not obey his father and mother and will not listen to them when they discipline him, his father and mother shall take hold of him and bring him to the elders at the gate of his town. They shall say to the elders, ‘This son of ours is stubborn and rebellious. He will not obey us. He is a profligate and a drunkard.’ Then all the men of his town shall stone him to death. You must purge the evil from among you. All Israel will hear of it and be afraid.” Deuteronomy 21:18-21 NIV

    Why do some Christians never consider following these verses literally in our society, yet interpret other Old Testament verses to condone the literal beating of children?

    What? Public School Books?

    | February 19, 2008

    I’ve sunk to an all-time low in homeschooling. For the first time ever, I ordered school books used in the public school system!! 

    N14 will be studying Canadian Law in high school. I was happy to find this textbook, even though it is used in the public schools. One chapter every two weeks will provide the basics of a full-year high school Canadian law course.

    http://www.pearsoned.ca/school/secondary/law/

    During our years of homeschooling, it has been very difficult to find quality materials about Canadian history. A few books exist for the early grades, but finding Canadian history books at the high school level is next to impossible. I decided to order a couple textbooks that are used in the public system. I am returning one, but this one seems okay. Since it only covers modern Canadian history, I am still searching for materials about earlier Canadian history. Any suggestions?

    http://www.pearsonschoolcatalogue.ca/program_single.cfm?site_id=2621&discipline_id=7139&subarea_id=22971&program_id=46826

    When I called the Pearson Canada number, I was told the listed prices were for SCHOOLS, so I would have to pay at least $15 more per book! I mentioned how it was unfair, and she gave me the sob story about how the schools don’t have much money anymore. I told her that our local schools are given $6000 per child per year, and even though we pay taxes, as homeschoolers, we have to buy our own curriculum.

    I noticed the online store had the lower prices and mentioned the words “teachers” AND “parents”, so I decided to try to order there instead. Fortunately, I paid the lower prices on two of the books. Since one of the books was not listed in the online catalog, I still had to order it on the phone and pay more. Discrimination! Who outside of the system would even want their books besides homeschoolers?

    Back to Canadian history for high school… I am considering these workbooks for grade ten, even though I would prefer books.

    I just ordered this book which examines the lives of fifty-two men and women who helped shape the spiritual heritage of Canada.

    If you are aware of high quality Canadian history books, please let me know the titles.

    WARNING: Graphic Video

    | February 16, 2008

    Here is a video showing the abortion of a chick.

    “Aborting a chick is horrible, aborting a human should be Unthinkable! You decide…”

    WARNING: Extremely Graphic Videos

    | February 16, 2008

    The war in Iraq is controversial. I watched part of a video clip today of a 12-year-old Taliban boy beheading a man. It was horrific. It reminded me of abortion.

    I am not encouraging you to watch these graphic videos. You won’t be able to get them out of your head. I am choosing to link to them anyway. Which do we hate more, the uncomfortable feeling we get when we face controversy or the actual evil itself?

    This is the beheading of an adult man by a 12-year-old child.

    This is the dismembering of two children by abortion.

    “The earth will disclose the blood shed upon her; she will conceal her slain no longer.” Isaiah 26:21 NIV

    “Truth is nowhere to be found, and whoever shuns evil becomes a prey. The LORD looked and was displeased that there was no justice. He saw that there was no one, he was appalled that there was no one to intervene.” Isiaiah 59:15,16 NIV
