Pro-Abortion Journalist Gets Really Honest

Jill Stanek, a pro-life activist and blogger, recently interviewed a top pro-abortion activist and journalist, Robin Marty. The interview was candid and respectful as each side shared their thoughts and views. The angle of the interview spoke to how the pro-abortion side sees pro-lifers. It was interesting to read some of Marty’s answers and learn how she and her friends view pro-lifers. At one point she said:

“There’s no such thing as common ground when we believe this is a civil rights issue for women, and you believe it’s a civil rights issue for the unborn. I don’t think we will ever agree…But I think it is interesting that we both have common ground in the opposition. There are a lot of parallels between both the pro-choice and pro-life side when it comes to what each side thinks is justified and not justified and thinking the other side is not playing by the rules.” It’s well worth a couple  minutes to read the article.

Video: Joel Osteen Speaks About Homosexuality

I will be the first to say that I am not necessarily a big Joel Osteen fan. There’s probably more than one area we would find ourselves disagreeing, especially in terms of what the Gospel is. However, in the past I have appreciated his answer to questions over his view of homosexuality as sin. With a church as big as his, and a worldwide following, it would be easy for him to take the easy way out and simply ignore the issue or take a liberal position that is contrary to Scripture. After all, he no doubt has a larger population of homosexuals in his church than most other churches ever see. But, to his credit, Osteen has been clear that he believes homosexuality is sin. Though some on the panel in this interview try to frame his comments to suggest he believes otherwise, Osteen confirms that he believes homosexuality is a sin. This is important because with such a large voice in our society for people of faith, his view carries more weight than others. So while I might not agree with many of his positions or even his way of leading a ministry, one thing I can appreciate is his defense of Scripture and the truth on this issue. Watch the video below.

Don’t Miss Our Interview with Gov. Tomblin!

by Nathan A. Cherry, 02/22/2012

Earl Ray TomblinMartinsburg, WV – Maybe you missed this interview we did with Gov. Tomblin on the critical social issues that concern us as West Virginians. It’s rare for a candidate, much less an acting Governor to speak so candidly on some of the hottest issues in our society; especially in an election year. So when FPCWV president Jeremy Dys had the opportunity to spend some time talking with Gov. Tomblin we were pleasantly surprised and grateful for his honest answers to our questions.

As I listened to this interview I was happy to hear directly from the Governor himself that he believes in life and seeks to be a defender of life politically. That is certainly encouraging for pro-life advocates in West Virginia that want to see strong pro-life lawmakers elected. It also means we should be able to count on Gov. Tomblin for his support in strengthening life laws in West Virginia.

The issue of marriage is center stage in West Virginia right now thanks to the introduction of a bill to the legislature by Del. John Doyle to legalize same-sex unions. Gov. Tomblin talks openly about his views on marriage and answers some tough questions that many lawmakers would seek to avoid.

We thank Gov. Tomblin for his time and honesty in speaking with us about these important issues. We hope you will take a few moments to listen to this interview and then perhaps email the Governor to thank him for speaking candidly on some tough issues.
